I played this when it first came out, and it had a lot of great ideas. I stopped playing for a while because it was buggy, as did manyu people I know, but always planned on coming back. Well, upon coming back I found the game to really stink. They basically took every good idea of the game out and made it a lame version of EQ (or WoW). You used to be able to customize your toon by picking exactly what professions you wanted to learn. You could be a bounty hunter and have some skills as a doctor to help heal minor stuff in a pinch. Or you could learn to use differant weapons, wear differant armors, ect. You could become a hybrid profession or elite professions, just about every toon was differant, which was really cool. Now you just pick one profession and you level just like every other game out there. This game was at least a 8.5 with the bugs, and all they needed to do was fix the bugs and it would have been 9.5. Now its a solid 1. There is nothing left of the original ideas that made this game so cool, it is one of the biggest disappointments I have ever had gaming wise. It makes no sense what so ever. WHY??? Oh, they added space combat, which is aweful, and the graphics and sound are nothing compared to other games.
