Being the first, and probably only mmo to grace the 360 platform. The game is slow to start, but once you get into the grove of it. It becomes very addicting.

Pros: You're never alone with playing, the game is lit up like a christmas tree with players.

Connecting to your friends is super easy.

Cons: The game, graphic wise, is average.

Some gameplay becomes repetitive overtime. Thankfully, the arkfall events keep you interested.

Overall: I give this game a 7/10

The best part about this game is when you first start playing it. It doesn't feel like anything on the market for consoles. The land is drab but that is not really a burden seeing that it adds to the atmosphere. I really like being able to summon my vehicle at any time. More games need to take notice of that. Also, I have been able to drive just about anywhere making huge jumps, so that is cool. The combat is pretty tame but still fun, especially when there are like a couple hundred people helping you try and kill something. That is awesome. Also, when items drop everyone gets a chance to get them so no worries about someone picking up that shiny thing you see over there. lol I really like the game. I had to buy it off ebay because GameFly must have only had one copy because they wouldn't ever ship it out. That or people bought their copies. Got it for like $40 off ebay so I ain't mad.

This game is very repetitive. It is however a nice change from typical shooters. This is a 3rd person shooter, you do have the ability to modify your character somewhat in regards to clothing. You can upgrade weapons, add attachments, even drive around in atvs and cars. Its supposed to have some interaction with the show but that doesnt start until next Monday. There seems like a lot to do but a lot of the side missions that steer away from the main line are very repetitive. The game requires an internet connection to even play it, thats a big downfall and it doesnt even work all the time, I contribute that to it being a new game that allows 1-10000+ people to play at once. I have never had an issue with lagging just the initial connection at times. You can have multiplayer matches, like domination, its not bad, but its not great either. I am hoping with time and more effort the new map packs that get released will add to the gameplay, its a game that will never end supposedly. Overall a 7, i enjoy playing it as again its a nice change from fps like COD, but there is room for improvement
