Didn’t feel like playing The Secret World after less than an hour being in there.
Maybe it would’ve been a bit better if I had stayed on and tried leveling longer but I couldn’t take it anymore.
Creating a character was a huge turn-off.
All of which looked ugly no matter what combination of face features I chose.
The slider wasn’t working well either… could it be caused by lag?.. sometimes it moves.. sometimes it doesn’t.
It was frustrating.
I wanted to just leave but decided that since it took hours to download the patch, why give up now.
The storyline was intriguing though.
I chose to be part of the Dragon cult (faction?).
Graphics are horrible.
Is it because of my computer specs or is it their engine?
It brought me into a fighting scene (overall demo) to kill evil mobs from another world with a group of other factions.
The Dragon believed in chaos, believed to bring in harmony into the world where small ripples leading to tsunamis of change aka the Butterfly Effect.
Then they allowed you to choose what kind of weapons you’d want.
I don’t think it should show up that way.
Everyone gets to “teleport” from one place to another (different parts of the world) in a quick fashion.
Probably the nicest feature I’ve seen so far.
Then came the zombie apocalypse quest.
Which reminded me of L4D.
You could light up gas cans and whatnot.
But once I reached the Sheriff’s office, I went off to do my laundry.
When I came back to my com, it d/c me with a popup saying I idled too long.
Oh well… thanks for kicking me out.
I needed a reason to leave anyway.
From the General Chat, some people did like the game, those from the 1st 2 beta tryout and some newbies.
Content isn’t much but they did enjoy the story.. I did.. I guess that’s the only part I did like.
But I’m sure I won’t want to go through the same story too many times.
Repeatable quests that allows you to level up.
It actually doesn’t lag in game.
Except that (I’m sorry!!!) the graphics is a huge eye-sore.
Now.. remind me why the game was in such a huge hype before??!!
