I liked it at first, but now having spent a few days really playing it, I love it. Maybe I'm not a "hardcore" MMO player (really, is that something to aspire to?), but I have been playing MMORPGs for 6 years. Sadly, much of my time the past 6 years has been spent in one MMO or another. The game is fun, which is what matters. The classes are fun, the initial quest line is awesome, and the graphics are great. The launch was relatively smooth. Maybe some things don't work, but at least you can log in for extended periods of time without gamebreaking lag and server crashes. I hear people complaining about broken quests in chat, but I've played 3 characters to 20+ and I've never had a real issue. Well, tonight I couldn't leave a zone, but I logged out and back in and it was fixed.

The combat system really isn't all that revolutionary, but it beats the hell out of auto-attack. The combat is more involving than "auto-attack, ability, ability, etc." Except, maybe for casters which are fairly standard fair.

The graphics are friggin' fantastic. Not just technically, but artistically, as well. Running around in all the zones that I remember from the comics is great.

My biggest complaint is that it's down right now for a patch, so I can't actually play it.

Played the reg, and high lvl "tech" beta's. The game is geared toward 14 year old more so then WoW.
The gore and Nudes are only good selling points.

The combat system is seems cooler and harder then it is. You see a shield...hit the other side, use ability, use combo, and repeat. I crave an MMO that requires much skill!

there is one thing you will soon learn, young grasshoppers: eye candy, as far as gaming goes, is only temporary pleasure. gameplay can last over a decade (Starcraft).
I played AC1, AC2, EQ1, WoW, CoH, L2, AO, SWG, and MANY others. I played EQ1 and WoW pretty hardcore. Up to ~100hours/week at some points. I am 27 years old.

I love this game so far and think it shows a lot of promise. All hardcore MMO players don't think AoC is a joke. Me thinks you are just defensive of something. And anyone complaining about bugs and network issues has obviously never played a large MMO at launch.

I'd have to agree, actually AOC seems to have had a much smoother launch then most of the MMORPG's I've played.

Much like a hot ass blonde chick with no intellegence or social skills (not trying to be sexist here, some men lack those qualities as well), once you've hit it, you want to move on to something with more substance and long-term gains especially in an MMO where you pay on a monthly bases.

I've been (and still am) in the closed beta for almost a month now. the closed beta client remains a newer build than the release. Level 39 Dark Templar.

If you don't like RTSs then this doesn't apply to you. A game like starcraft where the CD prompts you to install DirectX 5 is still being played today by hundreds of thousands of people tells you something about gameplay versus graphics. (where AoC leans more towards the graphics aspect, neglecting no revolutionary gameplay aspects which i, personally, was hoping for)

Wait for Darkfall. Maybe WAR too, if they do things right. WoW is a placeholder carebear MMO.

Those IGN writers are the biggest chumps out there. I stopped reading them after I figured out that every single one of their reviews made crappy games out to be pretty good and decent games out to be the end all be all revolutionary games that we've been waiting for since Christ.

Congratulations AoC. You've successfully made combat that is a step up from EQ's. Wow, that is freaking lame. They call that "really being in a fight"? Maybe the narrator should actually try getting in one for once. Then he might be more predisposed to make AoC an FPV or TPV action melee MMO rather than this crappy carebearized system they've got in place now. The AoC combat system is a step up, I admit. I like the evasion and shield control. But it's nowhere near brutal, hardcore, savage, or anything like a real fight. I hate the advertising for this game.

Status symbols? Roleplaying? Social experiences? Who cares about that? What ever happened to practicality? Ever try that one? Didn't think so.

AoC is about as hardcore as a themepark.

Read this early player review.

I concur. Give me a game with open pvp and full loot. Give me something with risk vs reward. That is a game that is truly fun.

All AoC is, is just another grind fest. Spend enough time leveling a character, and you almost feel obligated to continue to play. Grinding is the most retarded concept ever. What is there to risk in AoC? As far as I can tell... it does not exist. You die, you resurrect you go fight again. Fighting NPC's? ooo fun, yay scripts.

Another game with amazing pvp combat, AC. Ever try and hit someone with a spell that does not track? Or hit someone with an arrow that arc's? Now thats skill. Leave the button mashing to the kiddies and care-bears.

May i ask what level you are in AoC? Please give us your thoughts again in a week.

no one is complaining about bugs/network issues. These are things Funcom can fix easily over time. What they can't fix is the way they have constructed the games gameplay (basically taken WoW, made the quests a bit worse, added a "revolutionary" combo feature, and improved the graphics)

These are the things people have issues with.
