As a FPS I couldn't see this being a good game. But as a MMO it could have some serious potential. The biggest problem would be beating back WoW. WoW currently has a hold of the majority of MMO players to the point of almost being a monopoly. A few other MMO's managed to hold on to a few die hard fans but nothing to the scale of WoW. What usually happens when a new game is created people stop playing WoW for a bit and give the new game a try and then when they see it's not like WoW they go right back to WoW...
I'm not saying WoW is a bad game. I would just love to see another MMO get a bit of love as well. The only way to make it into the MMO department is by giving WoW some competition. It's going to be hard to find enough players who don't play WoW and are willing to pay a monthly fee for a game they already brought. The second someone does managed to beat out WoW they'll just release Diablo and that will be the end of that.
After 3 long years I would still love a chance to give this game a try. I wish so many developers would not focus so much on creating MMO's. Would have been nice if the creators of AoC had brought out another Dreamfall instead. After AoC failed they are attempting to bring out yet another MMO.
Whatever happened to the 4 player games like Phantasy Star Online?
