    Just give it a chance....

    I played this upon release after following the game for a VERY long time. It had the best promise of an mmo of any I had ever seen. However, it didn't accomplish what the creaters wanted to because it was release early o... Read Full Review

    Despite the initial bugs that all launches seem to suffer. There is a solid game here. Login bugs and servers going down seem to be high, but the stability of the game while in the game is better than any before it and... Read Full Review

    I will be the first to admit that there were bugs and lag bad when this game first started but truthfully most of those have been squashed. I have not had any issues with lag, crashes or bugs in quite some time. My mai... Read Full Review

    This game is not very good. Coming from EQ and DAOC and others, this game is very shallow. Crafting is about all there is to do, many features, have not been included, it is a terrible engine that runs sluggish and seems... Read Full Review
