I find this game to be pretty fun, i was kinda worried with the bad reviews it got very quickly out of the gate by other gamers, but once i got it i realized that it's not that bad of a game. It's very vast and at times a little complicated to understand with he upgrades and keys and other things, but you just have to read and understand what and how to get them.
The graphics could be a little better but overall they are not bad.
I really dont like how on a sniper rifle it zooms out as soon as you shoot it so you cant see the mutants head explode, but it is a single shot bolt action rifle so i guess i understand why it does that.
I have put in like 3 hours on the gae so far and i have unlocked the 4 wheeler so it makes getting around alot easier. I am liking the game the more i play it for sure.
I love the 3rd person view as well, if this game had been FPS i would have sent it back already.
I can't wait to see what more play time brings up, im excited to see what other kinds or weapons and vehicles i can unlock.
I have seen quite a few bugs, but every game has those.
It's a good rent so enjoy

Facts: Game mechanics ( aiming, running, jumping e.t.c ) literally appear and feel like a ps2 game.
Graphics 2/5
Sound 2/5
Controls 1/5
Replay value 5/5

The game becomes repetitive almost right away.
If you are the rpgmmo type you'd think its ..alright.

Personal opinion: The concept of the game is the only good thing about it. Then again Trion or "tryagain" studios didn't deliver that concept AT ALL they delivered a disaster. THE VOCAL ACTING is a 10/10 For ANNOYING.

Bottom line if you're a story/ shooter guy skip it. Mmorpg ppl... give it a shot before you buy it.

Borderlands meets Rift MMO

The game feels a lot like Borderlands and Rift mixed in with thousands of people running around on this giant map. The graphics are not the best in the world, but you can't expect beautiful graphics on a mmo with current hardware. Gameplay can get repetitive after a while, but it does get more challenging farther in the game. I did experience some server crashes, and had my stats reset on one of them. But I figured out that if you unlink your console from their website then that seems to fix this issue for the most part. If you are a huge Borderlands fan than I highly recommend this.
