Doing it and being successful are two totally different things. SWG was a cult hit not a financial hit basically ever. It only made enough to sustain it with a little left over. Nowadays that no longer flies look at city of heroes for a example of that. As far as Archage it has plenty of lag and problems. More then likely cause it to adapt or end up cult hit status too. I'm not saying I'm against it, just saying technology just isn't there to handle it quite yet.

Sandbox is relative to how much can you control. You can control pretty much 90% of your playing experience. Just because you can't control the full 100% doesn't mean it's not a sand box. Trust me you wouldn't want a 100% sand box that is impossible to balance. In this day and age a game that tries that will die a horrible death in less then a year.

I would consider this game more of a Sandpark or Themebox.  Basically a sandbox game with a leash or a themepark game with freedom.  Yup, a hybrid.  Sure you don't have to quest, but not until you do the mandatory chapter 1 personal story and the school chain so you can get your second skill set.  After that though you make your own play schedule or path.  I have yet to log on to twiddle my thumbs in wondering what to do.  There are always people to kidnap, escorts to run, schools to spy on, etc..  Plus, since I'm in the biggest english speaking guild on my server, we have instantly been enemies of a mostly Viet alliance.  That right there keeps me busy with guild base attacking and defending, and overall open world fighting whenever we cross paths. Good times.

that would definitely add more of a sandbox feel to that aspect of the game imho.. but overall game has way to many issues to warant me to put as much time as this game really needs to be put into it.. ill check back maybe in the summer and see how things have progressed

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Yep today I was auto running to a quest. I happen to watch the backround of me running. Just in time to see 7 matching guild tangmen chasing me. I LOL'D so hard the entire 10 minutes it took them to catch me lol. Still managed to kill one of them before getting knockdown cheesed.

Sandbox seems to be measured by EVE Online.

Age of Wushu is WAY more sandbox than EVE.

Proof:  In AoW I can go into space.  In EVE I can't go to China.

Age of Wushu is a BLAST!
