Just wanted to give this game a shout out. I tried this game in beta and immediately thought, not only would I not pay a sub for this game, I wouldn't play it for free. I was not impressed at all. Honestly though, I didn't give it a fair shake and 2 weeks ago a friend of mine wouldn't shut-up about how good it was, so I picked it up on Amazon for under $20 bucks and I have not stopped playing it since. This may be one of the best MMORPG's I've ever played. I've been trying to think of a game that has better writing, voice acting and questing and I can't. The missions are engaging and compelling and beautifully done. The combat also is done very well. If you play it for what it is and don't go in with any preconceived notions as to what it is going to be, you'll enjoy it.
