The Secret World Thoughts

Ok I got a little bit of a trial, not much in my opinion but I tried to do a little bit of everything

What I didn’t like –

Graphics – Glitchy, and seemed a little unpolished to me, even the cutscenes we’re a little janky which is one of my biggest pet peeve, you don’t have to have great graphics, but make sure they work.

UI – It seemed a little unpolished to me as well, like it was programmed by a college kid.

Combat – Some things I did like, but it seemed to range friendly to me, I would like to get in there and mess things up with my swords, but then all the mobs jumped on me.

The plot – It seemed all to little matrix to me, and sick of that beginning subway scene already, all 3 factions you had to do it. So much for Alts.

What I did like –

Guns – Seemed cool and different.

Plot – I liked the Templar plot the most, but the Dragon one even though a little confusing, when I made a chick toon, there was a pseudo lesbian scene there….so I didn’t mind all that much.

Skills – It was pretty cool the way you increased skills and such.


Overall – Not a BAD game, just one I know I wouldn’t stand for too long, and would jump ship as soon as GW2 came down the pike. I’m skipping this one and saving my money.

    Aaah have been waiting to see your thoughts on TSW.

    You are just confirming my thoughts from watching some gameplay vids, I’ll probably give it a whirl when it goes f2p in 6 months or so 🙂

  2. Well, I’m glad you got in, wish we’d made contact. The subway scene is skippable. I have some wicked AoE abilities with the melee weapons I use. The factions have mostly tonal/flavor differences, but I just went through three faction quests that took place in the same locale but were very different facets of the overall narrative. Alts are certainly not a necessity, though. The skills system is a major factor in my enjoyment, and I’ve never been a big theorycrafter. I understand your concerns about the graphics and UI, though I’ve gotten what I consider to be some awesome screencaps. I guess we’ll see you in GW2.

  3. Yep, to echo Rowan’s comment above, if you turn around when the subway scene loads there is a stairway with a gate you can click to skip that section.

    I play a Blades/Chaos setup and am enjoying being down in the mix of things, which is quite a change from my previous life as a hunter.
