The secret world: new PC MMO

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
How is no one talking about this game?

Looking at the trailers, it looks stunning and it is getting great reviews so far. It also will support nvidia TXAA soon.

Has anyone tried this game out yet?

I applied for beta a lifetime ago when i had interest and now they send me beta few months back... quite the long wait for a game that seems like a nothing to do so play now type of game.

Edit: Litteraly 5 min after i posted this i got an email from funcon about the game and pre-ordering...
199.99$ for the Grand Master Package ~ SRSLY ? they are over the top. I don't think there is a game out there in history that wants a bite of 200$ for a single game package.

I have a friend that played almost all of the betas of this game and played headstart and he seems to enjoy it. Im still thinking about if i should buy it or not but TXAA seems pretty nice.

But from what i heard it isnt in the game now and will be applyed in a future patch.

I have been playing this game for about a week and I am very impressed. Probably one of the best games I have played this year, it is very fun and the story is pretty good.

The only issue is that using surround or eyefinity, your cutscenes are messed up, the heads and legs are chopped off. It has made me go down to a single 1080p monitor. Major disapointment for me. The voice acting is alright, not the greatest but still decent, SWTOR had it beat for that. but the storyline and graphics are very impressive.

I was not one of the people anticipating this game either, I didn't know it was even released until some of my friends on vent were talking about it, they told me to order it and I did. I am happy I did too tongue.gif

I am not sure if it was just me, but the game looked crappy when I was in beta. Yea I know it's a beta (yadda yadda yadda) but the game just did not do it for me. I may play it again if they have a free trial but just did not seem that interesting to me. Just my personal opinion. I really know nothing of the game outside of The secret World is like a world that exits within your own world, kind of.... like a different dimension, sounds like a pretty cool story.

Friend gave me a buddy pass to try this game out. I was not impressed with what I read and saw about the game before and the buddy pass reaffirmed my initial feeling.

Saying it is a bad game is subjective. It just is not the game for me.

- The graphics don't impress me. Probably because its the same engine from Age of Conan so you can see the age and limitation of the tech.

- Character creation is the worst I have seen in a number of years. Only options you have is to change a few facial feature sliders and hair color. You can't mess with body type or height etc.

- Combat felt very stiff. Might be because the animations did not feel fluid.

- There is no "standard" leveling. You generate ability points as you fill up a progress bar. These points are spent on new abilities but you quickly get to a point where you have to save more and more ability points to get to the next tier of purchasable abilities. This became annoying to me because I felt this would only get worse as the abilities became even more expensive later on.


If you are into Myst or other mystery/puzzle solving games of old this may be the game for you. Many quests take research to complete. Like relating a passage of text you read in a letter or book you found, to a physical location, to find a clue that leads you on to an area with a puzzle, that gives you a code to unlock a door. Very involved, and for some very fun. Just not my style.

Actually it's $250, $50 for the game and then $200 for the ultimate pack. I think you're overlooking the fact that it includes a lifetime subscription though (in addition to the other items and stuff). If you plan on playing for 2 years or more (might be less than 2 years, I haven't looked at subscription options yet since I'm riding out my free month first), it's worth it on that basis alone.

It doesn't get worse, you reach endgame pretty quickly. You get SP/AP at the same rate forever, and can repeat quests (after the cooldown timer runs out on them), so mainly you're getting more options than better ones.

There isn't any particularly great need to go straight for the highest tier skills unless you want to specialize early on, you can easily get a bunch of lower-tier skills for the same price and play with your build without any penalties. Presumably at some point you can actually unlock every ability in the game on a single character since I don't think there is an SP/AP cap either, though that will take quite a while to do.

I'm having fun with it, the writing is great, and the missions have enough variety (mainly the investigation ones) to keep me playing. There's still the standard "kill bunches of enemies" ones but that's standard fare.

Played for a while, I just got bored of the game function. It is not worth the monthly fee and it also lack of the community.

 

In MMO -> Lack of community = fail MMO in 6 months. 

 

SWTOR in the other hand, lack of contents = fail MMO. (I was sitting for 3 months doing nothing due to the 6 months sub. I've paid)

I play this Currently and its pretty good. Some of the recent patches have fixed quite a few of the bugs it had on release. the pvp is fun and very cool that its persistant. when your faction controls areas you get varying bonuses xp buff,damage buff, stuff like that. its pretty good so far. i have just finished the first quest zone and seem to enjoy it.
