After seeing it on amazon for $10, I caved and picked it up, seeing as I've never seen a better price. After maybe 10 hours of intro gameplay, I have to say it was worth it, and I would've even paid 20 for it!
The environments are amazing! A little outdated-looking and a tad bit clunky with the mechanics, but REALLY not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Think GTA 4 on wasd controls. As someone who's grown up on video games, the graphics are still surprisingly good. The only downside is the map is pretty empty so far, but again I'm just starting on the map so I'm sure there's not many lowbies running around.
The storyline is a string of cliche horror stories come to life with some humor mixed in, but this is exactly what I was looking for in TSW. Zombies, ghosts, and beefed up monsters are everywhere, and they are pretty tough. Most fights are going to require some strategy as opposed to the usual buttonmashing with an MMORPG.
The missions have unique points. There's a lot of the classic 'collect x' or 'kill x many of x' in every zone, then you have your main storyline missions that have great cutscenes that made me laugh from time to time. NPC's actually conversing keeps the quest at hand worth paying attention. Most times you'll need to pay close attention anyway, because every little detail could be the only clue to progress through the mission. I've already run across a few puzzles that really make you put the effort in to figure it out. This is actually a big plus in my book, because it feels like you're actually doing something rather than hacking and slashing for quest loot.
So here are the negatives I've seen so far:
The ONLY MAJOR ISSUE I've had which really annoyed me is that you're going to run across a buggy mission somewhere down the road. My suggestion is if you're stumped and are pretty sure it isn't you, google the mission name. Most bugged missions have been mentioned by other players.
The next issue I have? I know I'm repeating myself, but the lack of other players. I've played plenty of online games, whether paid, sub, or f2p. This is actually a really good game with a fresh twist on the genre that's more impressive than a lot of the cliche garbage out there. Plenty of people have said, and I agree, that this is mostly due to the fact that WoW was releasing MoP AND the lack of marketing to promote it. I never heard of this game until I saw it on steam, and if I would've actually seen some advertising I know me and my friends would've tried it.
LONG STORY SHORT:
If you're like me and are cautious about trying a game without a trial (they have trial keys they give away, just never got one) and have been curious about this game, I say get it. This game is most similar to SWTOR; it's pretty much a solo rpg with a storyline, but you can still group up and play together. I know I'll continue to play this game, because the storyline is really fun so far and would love to progress further to see what happens. Giving 4/5 stars because it was better than I expected, but the buggy quests are a big problem for an MMORPG.
*Will update after further progress*
Cons: The only reason I didn't give The Secret World 5 stars is because, being a brand new game, they still have a few bugs to work out. Also the game is lacking some features that gamers have come to expect from MMO's, but the development team says that most of those features are in the works and will be arriving shortly (within the next couple months).
Conclusion: BUY IT, LOVE IT, PLAY IT. I don't want to spoil all the fun, but this game rocks! It's made for adults, it's difficult, it requires you to think, and is truly a pleasure to play.
Having found it during the holiday sale I did some research before buying it since mmo's these days are just copies of one another and get boring fast.
Not this one. This game is a true gem, based in modern time with conspiracy theories and horror themes this game really breaks away and finds its own footing. This mmo is actually challenging, with a range of different quest types from sabotage to investigation, you can spend as much time exploring for clues and figuring out puzzles as you can fighting horrifying monsters such as zombies (that vary from townsfolk to cultist to giant hulking undead) vampires, ghost, and even the Deep Ones from H.P.Lovecraft (who had a huge influence on this game!)
You choose 1 of 3 factions, The Illuminati, the dragons, and the Templars. Each with their own epic story and never ending lore that you learn through the story and from your own research and investigating.
This game plays like no other mmo out there, from survival horror, to apocalypse, to Indiana Jones (just to name a few) this mmo is a true experience. Every npc has their own voice actor and multiple dialogue options that change, you can spend hours in one zone just talking to the npcs and learning the secrets that are being hidden from you,
While I could keep going on I'm half asleep after an all nighter playing TSW I will end it with this, if you want a new mmo that isn't another WoW remake where you spend most of the game doing kill 10 of these guys and collecto 10 of these quests, and a true challenge for adults, grab TSW, no monthly subscription, no pay to win.
