    I love how the three factions are portrayed completely differently.

    I played mostly in the closed beta and boy, does the game grow on you as you play. The investigation quests are really hard - but rewarding and the sabotage quests are frustrating as hell. You have ac...

    Ok, so I won't go into an elaborate review because that isn't what I am good at :P I will say that I have been playing TSW since May. I got into closed beta then. This game has progressed a lot up ...

    You have to try it!

    I'll make this short: Try it yourself! I was very close to not be buying nor even trying this game, because of Funcom's game-track, and all the negative stuff I've heard. .. but I'm glad I did! ...

    Not your run-of-the-mill MMO.

    Rated on July 03, 2012 by saurabh1312

    This game is worth paying the subscription fees. The world and the environment: I haven't moved on to the later zones (still in the first 3 zones), but it looks like Silent Hill. It has the best e...

    Great TSW

    Rated on July 03, 2012 by olesolheim

    Best game out there now. People keep comparing it to GW2 and SWTOR, both great games I love but this is just plain different. Its not a game for everyone, but for those who pick it up will be in for ...

    Great smooth and polished launch. game itself is marvelous in PvE and amazing in PvP. This MMO change the industry.

    Rated on July 03, 2012 by Goredie

    The game is actually ready for launch. I have not part taken in a smoother launch before. Rift launch was not as good as TSW's launch even (Rift had 8 hours downtime while TSW virtually had none). Per...

    Fun, but important issues not resolved.

    Rated on July 03, 2012 by poisonelf1

    Devastating will be the World Domination buff, that is going to end up controlled by one faction, leaving the other 2 factions hanging in the wind. Similar to the aoc Bori, giving a advantage to those...

    Probably one of the worst MMOs I have ever played. I beta tested this game and the combat is horrible. Not Fun!

    Rated on July 03, 2012 by Fionn99

    The Secret World is probably one of the worst MMOs to date. The combat is horrible, the enemies are laughable, and the action is actionless. The graphics were sub-par and the game play was lacking ...

    A smooth launch, a MMO that does not lead you by the hand with missions that make you think outside of the box.

    Rated on July 04, 2012 by Olgark

    I was in closed beta for this mmo and even though I have done much of the early content for this game more times than I would like to count I still find refreshing to play. The story lines mixed in wi...
