I've been involved with the beta since beta 1. This game is pretty good. The graphics, which I note that some here don't think are up to par, are very nice despite what some may think. Yes, the tree trunks look a little UT-ish, but honestly, I don't play a game for what it's foliage looks like. I have a garden outside for that. I'm sure that WoW is a great game, but in my opinion, the graphics suck. The main reason I stopped playing EQ2 is that everything looked cartoonish (so does WoW btw). I don't want to play a cartoon let alone pay for one. Having kids, I get to see plenty of that on my T.V., enough to fill a lifetime. LOTRO actually has good player models, etc. The dwarves look like dwarves. The elves actually look like elves! (Unlike WoW's bastardization of what an elf is supposed to look like).

They really have taken notice of what other successful MMOs have done and combined them all into one place. Now, I don't necessarily like all of that (combo skills and such are not on the top of my 'like' list), but it is nice that they are trying to cater to many different types of player.

Besides the fact of being the only MMO out there to provide you a way to never have to pay a monthly subscription whilst they get revenue to provide you with updated content/server maint, they offer the lowest monthly subscription rate out there for a mainstream MMO. That's a huge difference that might be worth checking out.

Just my 2 cp.
