    I was an active beta tester. I think they've done some good things. I think they were respectful to the genre. But, at least as far as I made it through the game in Beta, I think it is hugely linear and scripted. The MMO experience is a bit wasted because--even in public areas--it seems like your path is all but set. It simply becomes your responsibility to advance the story line like it were a Playstation single-player game. Hopefully, that changes or improves later in the game.

    I can say this honestly, I played with full intention of leaving this game, but I ended up coming back. I just love my Monk. I really liked my Bard until I totally gimped her. (Never, ever allow your guild-mates to convince you to change your solo-worthy Warchanter into a SpellSinger just so that they can get buffs!)

    Where was I? I think their graphics and sound are very nice. The gameplay is ... simple. (At least to level 10.) It just doesn't have the social MMO feel of DDO, nor did I think it had the depth. Perhaps that community is just yet to be built. So I think they've done a good job, but I prefer the community I've built and I'm not compelled to change.

    It's a free2play, so I encourage you to try it out. To each their own.

    It's a niche market for people who enjoy linear games with little side progression. Farming for gear is the end-game from what I've heard. Not my cup-o-tea, but people can like different things and still be good people.
    There is no free lunch.
