Im thinking of buying the game and wondered what peoples thoughts are of this game?

Visually its stunning and could give world of warcraft a run for its money but like world of warcraft after buying the game there is a monthly subscription.

Game itself costs £34.99 and the monthly subscription is £12.99.

Just a simple web comic but covers my opinion exactly; click here

NB: this comic is clean but others can use more colourful language.

Comic made me laugh but yeh i see your point,
WoW has such a huge fan base it will never be a WoW killer but it never set out to be.

It does some what annoy me when people compare any new MMORPG game to WoW.

WoW never really sparked my imagination, its graphics compared to the newer MMORPG games are dated and cartoony.

good bits: pretty much bug free, fair graphics, flying combat, low lag.
bad: 2/4 hour log on delays, only 1 start point,samey landscape, no talent builds, poor class match, very bland linear quests, nothing new really, if you don't like wow try DDO it's free.

guild wars, which is by the same developers, but GW is free to play online after the purchase of the software. Why anyone gets suckered in to paying monthly subscriptions is beyond me.
