The SOE team have done a great job and I think a lot of that has come from listening to their community. The community is made up of a lot of experienced players, but a lot of mature players that help to build the game and not just run it down.
It's currently on Game Update (GU) #5 and looking stronger than ever. With racial mounts, flying mounts and so many quests that just once character will not let you see it all. I've have to create a number of ALT's just to get to see the additional content.
I know this is brief, but I do think the offical Review on this site needs to be updated as it's not as bad as they make it sound.
