I still have the game box unopened. I still haven't tried it. :/ Is it worth even trying? I liked the movies.
The owners of the game appreciate your participation.

I made it to about 40 at launch, 1-20 was an absolute blast. I really loved it, and then the curtain was revealed....those next 20 levels i think i was drunk..

Ok just read that its free to play, or rather free to try. You cant really do anything without having access to the premium content.

This game is at 6 years old finally has the content that was promised at launch. The game is not bad. Its definitely one of the more original MMO's I have played and has some of the best combat Ive yet seen in any MMO.

I did make it off the island but the content was so sparse that the grind was too excessive to get anywhere near a proper level. But the open world PvP was hugely enjoyable, and an even bigger dissapointment when you figured out that the large siege battles that were promised and player owned keeps laregly missing or bugged.

If it was free to play today I would probably log in and check it out. For a monthly fee though? No way...

I could never make it off the island. Every major patch or expansion I revisit the game...every time I quit at or before lvl 20. There can be no doubt that they have made sweeping changes and dramatic improvements, but unfortunately they haven't made it into a game that can hold my attention. It feels like Funcom is doomed to making MMOs that look great on paper but fall flat in reality. (edit: it should be noted that in all fairness, having not made it off the island doesn't really give me a full picture of the game)

Some people claim Secret World is good...I have the same problem with SW that I do AoC. Can't get passed the early levels because my interest level just isn't maintained. It is like there is a secret MMO ingredient and they are missing it.

Does anyone have something to say in comments besides beating the game up? As in, saying something insightful and current about the game?

Well, ummm I guess I like the first movie better than the books... and there goes all my nerd cred.

As for the game? Not a damn thing.

Julio pretty much sums it up. The first island is fun. The rest...not so much.

...um, pretty sure they still got bare virtual boobies, so that's a plus I guess.

I'm shocked that this still is being played by anyone. I had fun for the first little while, then the gameplay took a nose dive after the initial island.
