yeah its kinda cool cause its this new thing. in reality there were ps2 games that were better third person shooters. the background stories just determine what guns you start with (which is dumb because you end up with every gun type within an hour). plus there are all those races in the game and you can only play as two? seriously? not to mention there's no race specific abilities so either race is only an aesthetic choice. all the quest pretty much boil down to run to point A hold X, run to point B hold X. oh! and the skill tree is the most boring and unimaginative skill tree ive ever seen.
It's not okay for just a first shot platform mmo. it would be good if it was the 2nd or 3rd. now i'm not saying there are not problems, but the only one i found was server issues. everything else is great.
If you want a great third person shooter.If you want a great mmo.If you want a game with a awesome scifi universe.Then get this game.Buy don't rent this title.There is no class system like other mmos.Groups need not follow the played out tank,healer,dps formula.The ego grid is built to accomadate any play style.You can even unlock every power and perk on the grid if your inclined to do so.The main missions tell a well written and thought out story.There are tons of side missions and other activities to keep you busy.The pvp is one of the most balanced and skill based you will ever play.A skilled player will thrive where COD fanboys will tend to always be on the bottom.And then there are the arkfalls both minor and major.They are random dynamic events that any number of players can come together to tackle enemies with the promise of great rewards.ranging from loot to currency.Every weapon is modable and the appearance of your weapon changes to show the modifications.
