Let me start off by saying, I really want to like this game. At the moment, I cannot say that and find it very difficult to say anything postive about it. Sure, it has pretty graphcis, but there are way too many areas with this game that I have a problem with.
For starters, just even logging in game is a hassle and the load time for screens.
Battle mechanics are horrible, too slow. I just don't like the feel of it AT ALL.
The game itself seems way too complicated and confusing. I can't even find mobs to fight, they are usually claimed. I find myself chasing after a wharf rat before anyone else claims it.
Don't understand the party system, way too confusing. Crafting is a hassle and overly complicated in many ways.
This stupid 'mickey mouse hand' pointer just looks stuipid and childish. Equipping items is a pain. UI is terrible.
This game is a big disappointment to me. I think I'm going to keep trying to like it, but Aion is looking better and better. I was a ff fan for many years, played ffxi for 5 years. I think they went in the wrong direction with this game. They should have just given a facelift to ffxi. When I played ffxi, I couldn't wait to log in again. I'm not getting that vibe with this game. I'm forcing myself to give it a go.
