Complete train wreck. A horror story of what could go wrong towards an MMO that had so much potential. A sad story!!

Vanguard promised the current MMO players everything that players sorely longed for. A diverse game play, good graphics, great mounts, player housing, etc.
Well, they sorta delivered and, at the same time, they blew it. Everything is bugged to high heaven. The development coding is shoddy at best and the game is so taxing, not even a Quad core 4 gig of RAM rig can even play it beautifully with great frame rates. The world is huge but there are about a dozen and a half starter cities so everyone is spread out everywhere. This makes the world a very lonely place unless you pick the popular of the three human races.
Character customizations in very bad. Four hairstyles per race and a customizable slider bar that really does nothing because no matter how much you mess with the configuration you'll always end up looking the same as everyone else.
See for yourself. Get a buddy pass and try it out. But please dont spend 50 bucks on this yet. They need at least a year to fix all this mess out.
