It's a great looking game. The treadmill is well represented but by all reports it's easy enough to get past if you group as much as possible.
All the fun comes in the end game. The thing that makes Lineage great is the seige system and player politics. All the other stuff is extraneous to that. It's another sand box game. You have to make your fun. It's definately not going to be found in the exisitng content.
