Now players from all over the world can download the entire Anarchy Online universe and try it without any commitment for seven full days." The trial version can be downloaded from this page, and here's a bit on the content the expansion for their science fiction MMORPG, which has: "introduced 20 large playfields, 40 smaller playfield areas, and over 165 distinct dungeon zones tailored to players of all levels. An impressive range of new features, including new professions, faction system, hundreds of perks, better AI, hundreds of monsters and items, new music and a greatly updated graphics engine ensured a gigantic addition to what was already an award-winning game.

Suckered into SWG too, friend said it was like having an mmog of Kansas and he was dead right.

The latest rash of the big name mmogs are cater to the crafting at the major expense of all other avenues of fun. Horizon's is very much in this vein too, if you aren't into crafting, go play something else. Now I hear EQ2 bragging about how player made items will be the best in game and there's a craftsman class.... /sigh

AO has the best way. Crafting is insanely difficult, but far from necessary. Crafting there is another game within the game, as it should be. If you don't want to craft, then don't. There's no huge disadvantage to not crafting whereas in games like DAOC, you'll suck hardcore if you avoid it.

I'll go as far as to say that AO is the best mmporg out there currently, I'm glad they never abandoned it.
