I heard this game was getting nothing but bad reviews. It's nice to see some positive notes. Wish I had the time to explore Secret World.

Naked Snak3 Not gonna lie; the game has its problems. Combat, for instance, is kinda bland compared to the world itself. But it's SUCH a refreshing experience.

I want to experience this game, but not with a $50 up front cost. As exciting as it sounds I had a really bad experience with Age of Conan, and I'm just not willing to invest in Funcom again at launch. Maybe they'll have a free weekend soon, and it'll blow my mind. Until then though, I'll settle for hearing stories.

With all these MMOs releasing that are one-time costs (and I honestly don't see how they stay afloat with only making you pay once and you're done...) It's going to be hard for a game like this, which has a bad ancestor looming over its head, to get any support when it's running a subscription base. I understand the reasoning behind it, but I see it making it harder for them to get players in the long run. Oh, and like you said... Guild Wars 2...

Naked Snake, try reading reviews rather than "hearing" about them...

This game isn't AoC. Personally I liked AoC and played it for a while but this game... This game is different. This game is totally absorbing. It's also very different from what you expect in an MMO. It's not perfect - no game is - but man it's fun.

Abyss Raider It has good ancestors too. Folks get so hung up on the bad that they forget Funcom also made Anarchy Online, which was actually really enjoyable.

Age of Conan is a really good game right now, I don´t know why people always refer to the bugged release. I play it since 3 years and man, it rocks like fxxx !

RabidChinaGirl I didn't know they made that awesome game, also. Thanks for the enlightenment! Sometime I'll have to give The Secret World a try, because everything I had seen of it makes it look really unique, and your review here confirms that it's worth trying.

For those on the fence who'd perhaps like to give the game a try, if you create an account now (or have any pre-existing/expired account eg Beta, Early Access etc) you can play for free throughout next weekend. http://www.thesecretworld.com/news/celebrate_the_first_live_month_of_the_secret_world
