PoE bored the crap out of me after awhile. All the classes played more or less the same. The animations were bad, especially kill/death animations (no physics, just the same canned death anims). The trading system, while I thought I liked it at first, quickly became frustrating. The story was forgettable too but mostly it was the combat that turned me off. Genderlocked characters were another turn off, along with bad (i.e. no) customization. No different hairs, armor dyes, nothing.
When did you play?? They really haven't even added most of the story elements yet. That's not what the beta is about. Were you expecting a finished game? They've had less than half of the content available, and hardly any of the story elements. More of that will be released when the open beta starts.

Granted the animations aren't the best, but they've improved those lately as well. Cosmetic improvements for characters will be coming later as micro-trans purchases. Seriously, the game hasn't even hit open beta yet, but the last couple of patches have included a ton of major improvements to all parts of the game.
