Well after having wasted my money on that horribly broken Conan MMO that Funcom released a couple of years ago, I think you will understand that I have no absolutely no faith in this game.
posted this in another section, But gonna post this here as well.
Regarding: The Secret World...
As an (currently) Early Access player, I have to say, This is the ONLY game where Funcom have actually stepped up, And outdone themselves, And, For that matter, Outdone a couple of other BIG companies, Namely Blizzard and Bioware. The Secret World Early Access launch went off WITHOUT A HITCH - No server crashing, No extended downtime, No client crashing, No ridiculous lag...Of course, There are issues, As all games nowadays have, Such as chat 'disappearing,' buggy quests etc. BUT, Overall it has been the best 'launch' that any MMO producing company could hope for.
Having said that, I would like to point out that, At least, For me, The 'story' seems to feel all but non-existent. I'm a good 10-12 'levels' in, And so far, The only thing I can gather, Is that I'm an Illuminati recruit...It feels like I'm 'Mr Anderson' in The Matrix (1999)...I haven't a friggin clue WHAT is going on, Or who I am, Or what role I play, Or anything, Except that I'm suddenly thrust into a strange world, With some supposed uniqueness, And thats it.
There doesn't seem to be any congruity to the story in this. I've been playing for almost 24 hrs now, And I dont understand what in the blue hell is going on.
@blackfray same i just wanted something to hold me until August and from the looks of it, it's not going to be this.
The game is coming out in Europe this week too
@EvolvedGames On what evidence - looked at several retailers and no-one seems to be stocking it...........
