Been hearing good things about this game since it launched. Which is saying something because it is from SOE...

Really? I didnt like it very much, well i got about 40 hours out of it before i lost all interest, and one of my friends who actually wanted to start PC gaming, Quit PC gaming because the game was so unenjoyable to him.

But i feel, that must of the problem lies in the FPS issues and MASSIVE grind times to unlock things. I think it was nearly 100 hours of game play to unlock 1 gun and a couple attachments.

"I think it was nearly 100 hours of game play to unlock 1 gun and a couple attachments."

Wow that's a total load of BS if I've ever heard it and not even remotely true.

There's a huge difference when you're going about it as a lone wolf versus joining a squad. Sweeping through the map with a squad and capping points is a huge part of the game, and rightfully the most rewarding.

During the day... you earn battle rank by mowing through people... during the evenings, you earn certs by galaxy hopping with a squad and capping points.

I have wanted to play this...maybe the time has come to download the client and give it a shot...

I have to admit I didn't think it was my sort of game at first... but 6 hours later I was still capping bio labs with my squad.

I may end up giving it a try.
