The Secret World Launches

Funcom announces the launch of The Secret World, focusing on the critical reaction meeting the conspiratorial MMORPG:
Funcom is thrilled to announce that the hugely anticipated modern-day massively multiplayer online game ‘The Secret World’ officially launched worldwide today. What many are calling one of the smoothest launches in MMO history actually started Friday last week when Early Access began, opening the doors to the online world of myths, legends and conspiracies for all pre-order customers to enjoy during the weekend. Launch happened smoothly and hordes of gamers have so far enjoyed ‘The Secret World’ and its fresh take on the MMO genre.

The first press reviews are starting to surface, and so far the reviews are very positive. Hyper Magazine has given the game a 9/10 score, saying “… this could be the most important MMO since ‘World of Warcraft’”. NowGamer awarded the game a 8.3 out of 10 score, praising the game’s excellent graphics saying the “… DirectX 11 visuals challenge the limits of what we’d credit an MMO as capable of achieving.” Other reviews hitting today include 5/6 from both VG and Dagbladet, two of the biggest mainstream newspapers in Scandinavia, as well as a 9/10 from PC Powerplay. Looking at the incredible number of comments on forums and social media channels, feedback from players has also been overwhelmingly positive so far. The game is receiving praise for breaking new grounds for the MMO genre, combining technical and gameplay innovation with superior high quality production values.

I bought it on sunday, much to support Funcom (since I'm norwegian) and because I was reading forums all over the net about how great it was.

Turns out, it's actually quite fun. It's still a MMO, so you run around doing quests and crap. But some of the quests are HARD, and this is in the starting area. I won't spoil anything, but it makes you investigate and not just "run there, grab that, run back". And the atmosphere is GREAT, just stunning.

I really like it, and I had no real thoughts about what kind of game this was before I tried it. I'll continue to play because it has potentional to become something amazing.

Lets hope the end content and everything is good enough to keep players. I played AO for a while, and I had a blast in that game, the fun that game is in TSW as well, so I think they really hit the jackpot here.
