The Secret World - Beta Impressions

  • Fresh setting
  • New character progression system: Level up your weapon instead of your character
  • Kill 6 zombies! Gather 3 first aid packs! Basic quest-based gameplay identical to just about every other MMORPG
  • Hotkey-based combat system identical to just about every other MMORPG
  • Shoddy production values: Crashes, bugs, "scheduled maintenance" of 4 hours in the middle of a beta weekend
  • Average graphics, not pretty
  • Combat with guns feels unrealistic: Shooting an assault rifle at extremely close distance and not even doing much damage

The first two Con points kill it for me. I will not be buying The Secret World. I'm not saying this is a bad game, but I'm sick and tired of games with the same old combat mechanics, running around for the same old quests to kill monsters here and click on hotspots there.
