    I've been thinking about checking it out. Hows the PvE in that game? Does it feel addictive? Any opinion from OT is fine :)

    I played it a lot, but it gets really boring. It's tiresome and repetitive and really linear. I wouldn't suggest buying it, but that's just me after a long time of playing.

    I just started it as a way to keep up with a buddy of mine who is way into it. I'm not even a fan of RPGs, but I have been enjoying it. No monthy fees FTW.

    It's a good game based on the fact that you don't have to pay monthly. I played it for a staight week when I bought it. It was sweet, but now it is just a casual thing to do when I'm bored. No need to try and get my moneys worth each month

    I got it, but uninstalled it when BF2 came out...

    I liked the fact, first and foremost, that the online play was free.

    With that said, I've never played any MMOPRG's before, so I didn't really know what I was getting into as far as playing them and getting 'addicted'. The gameplay was interesting, but there were some points that you HAD to be teamed-up with other people. Begging people in towns to assist you with travel was sometimes a bit of a pain in the ass though.

    The fact that when you died, you kept all your stuff was a nice touch also.

    I had severe problems with my install to where starting the game was impossible. Probably just my system.

    there are almost always henchmen available to help if you don't want to socialize(then why play a mmorpg?). I've beaten almost every mission with henchmen.

    I bought it when it was released. I've maxed about 7 different builds but got bored of the game around the 5th one. I'd say find a friend who has it an set up a character, otherwise find it for REALLY cheap. Not worth full price imo.

    it's more fun if you get with agroup of people that enjoy it. the pvp is fun though.

    the end was kind of a let down. i'm picking up factions this month and i'm still leveling up my other characters.

    It's very much a socially oriented game. There are always henchmen you can use to get by, but that gets boring. If you're playing in a team with friends (such as in a guild), ..now that's now to roll. Whether you're kicking ass or getting yours handed to you, it's always more fun in a group.

    I finished the missions with 1 character, and built up a few more to level 8-12, after that I quit playing. Never really got into the PvP aspect of it. However, I put enough time into the game to make it well worth the purchase, and I was very happy with it :)
