This is it... the ulimate MMO above all MMO's. This game has it all and allows you to become emersed in a vast land and tremedous game play. Ther are no weaknesses to this game. Character development is everything you want in a RPG. I have not gotten to the expansion packs thus far but when i hit 50 I will witout thinking twice about. Be warned that this game is highly addictive and will take over a portion of your life. Granted there is a monthly subscription but it is well worth the 14.95 a month. Can 9 million people (subscribers) be wrong?... I highly doubt it.
