The much anticipated Secret World was released this week.
Having had the pleasure of playing the beta, I knew what to expect coming out. As a concept this game is amazingly interesting, but it suffers from the same thing that plagues most MMO’s. It is very repetitive and you simply don’t care about your character. Not to mention there is this feeling of restriction. If you don’t want to go out and kill 10 zombies 5 different times, you can’t progress anywhere or face any type of new creature. So your forced to repeat and repeat and repeat.
Stylisically and on paper this game is awesome. But put into action, it just doesn’t stand up to other MMO’s.
Get it or Skip it?
Skip it. The unique concept just isn’t enough to mask the boring gameplay.
