Does /v/ like The Secret World?
Ive never seen anyone talk about it but in my opinion its one of the better MMOs out there right now.
Eh. Its okay. The combat leaves a lot to be desired as it moves awfully slow and you will die a lot.
The story is pretty good though! Its just, most people I talk to tend to give up around Egypt (the second area) just like I did.
I only picked it up right after they had apparently just toned the difficulty down significantly on a whim because it was on a Steam daily deal.
It's a good single-player game, yeah. The investigation and sabotage missions really show how Funcom used to be a developer of single-player point and clicky type games until they decided to go after the World of Warcraft MMO audience.
Population is like an old MUD instead of an MMORPG--small scale. Dungeons and Raids are sort of loot scoots, and they're sort of like the easier tier content you'd see in a game like Rift or WOW.
Voice acting is surprisingly decent and writing is alright. I wouldn't call it "GREATEST RPG EVER TOLD" but it is entertaining enough.
And don't be surprised when an NPC turns out to be gay. I swear it just keeps happening.

It's fun but holy shit making an MMO heavily based around SP and making the SP required is fucking stupid.
>opinion its one of the better MMOs out there right now.
It's one of the deader MMOs out there right now and funcom has sucessfuly run it into the ground over the last few years.
t. disillusioned old player.
Egypt is where I stopped a long time ago. I really liked the earlier areas like the town during holloween, the school, and that time travling house. A lot of Savage Coast and Blue Ridge Mountains is boring fighting the same 2 enemies a hundred times. Especially since they're full of slowing totems that force you into combat.
And a lot of Egypt is super boring because half the enemies are blatant texture swaps. Cultist are just zombies, cult leaders are just infected, mummies are just zombies you need to kill on a time limit. The only good part is the investigation mission that takes place right inside the lair.
its absolutely balanced around playing alone, senpai. game is way too easy in a group. also the whole questing is very much about atmosphere, something that gets completely lost when going into the usual questing-habbit with a group just grinding down the quest-log
id say its pretty much a singleplayer game trapped inside an MMO closet
Still playing and enjoying the new issue.
Egypt is a a hard part to pass but is worth it for Transylvania.
Just hope they don't make the new grind for 10.10 obligatory for the story. I can bring myself to do the dungeon and raid again after farming for 10.05
Great as a single player game. Puzzles are legit. Egypt drags but Transylvania was pretty great.
