I've been looking into this game, going to read the review now

Good that it gave a general score and brief background but it didn't delve too much into the various spells and items as I would've liked.

I've been playing the game rather significantly, and so far it is a blast. Beautiful graphics, the best character creation system I've personally ever used, and just an all around polished game.

Of course, the real questions are whether or not the end-game is worth a damn, and if PvP is balanced. We'll see.

It's a bit hard to comment on the depth of the combat right now :/ hitting gladiator was great but at this point I still haven't been able to capitalize on all of the new features. The basic combat system is forgiving and behaves like other MMO titles, the chain combat system can allow for multi-strike which is great and chain combination moves.

It's a sketchy line to pitch the fighting system as ultimately refined when we're a ways off from really tapping the peak of the game. PVP experience would have been great but at the same time we're working within the timeframe we have to get these things out. I mean honestly I would love to bill for the hours getting to the Abyss and battling it out but I don't think the site would sign off on that kind of thing >>

That's what I'll be waiting for until I jump into the game. I have a friend playing it like a madman but I have this nagging feeling people are going to get to end game and not be happy.

No real comparisons or explicit gameplay descriptions, grr. Is this just the case of a typical MMO wrapped around World of Warcraft with additonal pretty and polish?

I wouldn't say it's related much to World of Warcraft. If it's comparable to any MMORPG I'd say it would be Guild Wars, but that's a different game as well. The graphics however show signs of similarities. The possibilities are a lot more and the combat system is very detailed. For example attack and damage calculation take into account your position towards your opponent. I'll try and write a user review once I've played it a bit more and done some PvP matches.

I have a pre-order Collector's Edition as well, and supposedly got a headstart of a few days. One thing that I didn't like really were the horribly long waiting times. I mean, half an hour wait for a game that just launched is acceptable but 4-9 hours is too long really.

What are the similarities between Guild Wars and Aion other than graphics? And is combat a right-click and it's automated with intertwining skills deal (numbers excluded)?
