You can select the gender, looks and size of your character. I created a small skinny girl with pink pigtails.

It looks quite funny between all the super sized wannabe supaheros.

Other characters run through the stations, stop for a few seconds in front of my character, then continue running.

You can almost hear them say "what kind of idiot is this?"

Depends on what you like.

It's a mix between a shooter and Diablo. It's not much like WoW.
The story is mediocre and the quest are quite generic.
The interface is a little clumsy, especially the inventory and the chat.

But it has been a lot of fun so far because it's quite simple and some of the classes are cool. I also like the sinister style.

I like it especially because it's not so time consuming like WoW. It's not "epic., more like a game.

There's almost no interaction between players in MP so far. Quite refreshing after all the Wow plzboy and goldmerchants.

Because of the lack of cutscenes and story and blah it's also quite fast and straightforward.

the setting and idea does attract me. kinda makes me think of shadowrun crossed with phantasy star online.

There's a demo isn't there, i might just give it a try.

It's a very simple game at the moment. The MMO aspect is basically crap (although if you start out with a friend it might be fun).

But the graphics and animations are extremely atmospheric, and it's fun to play. The marksman is especially impressive with a nice rocket-launcher. =)

I had my share of annoying guild members and idiots, so it's quite refreshing. I prefer to play with friends rather than with some weirdos. I mean unknown weidos. WoW made me a guild hater ...

Yesterday I got invited - without being asked. But hey, there's a "IGNORE" button when invited! ZAPPPPP!

Auto party has triggered once for me so far, and we spent the first half minute trying to kill each other and wondering why we couldn't target stuff.

Kinda funny. Blademaster at least is way overpowered to even consider grouping with anyone else so far.

I am a blademaster and I am a lot weaker than the engineer I teamed with.

How can you more than one-shot everything, though?

Are engineers killing everything in sight instantly?

(Because I could believe that...)

The bots kill everything ... While playing an engineer you can watch TV. Just repair the bot from time to time
