Rated 10 out of 10 by xRox Can not stop playing
I bought this game 3 days ago, and it is already one of the best video game purchases I have made in as long as I can remember. This game has literally everything I have wanted out of a game. It is fairly realistic, it incorporates real ideas into the game, requires a great deal of strategy and thinking, AND to top all of that off, it's online and now SUBSCRIPTION FREE. If none of that is enough to convince someone to play this game, the online community here is one of the absolute best that I have ever seen. I asked a question in general chat, and people gave me an actual answer and tried to help me out with what I was doing. Most games I've played, if I had asked a beginner question people would've replied with 'lol noob look it up' or 'figure it out scrub'. This community is so different, and it is great. Whenever I get stuck in a quest or mission, I'm not worried about looking it up online because people ACTUALLY bother to not spoil anything for us!! Instead of just handing me the answer, they take the time to try to guide me in the right direction without giving it away. I can not put this game down, it is all I play now.
Rated 9 out of 10 by 2LateM8 Excellent game
I have little time to play MMO games, but I picked this one up as it had Ragnar Tornquist as the main storyteller. Being a long time "TLJ" fan, I decided to try it out...and I'm still playing. Anyways, I play max 10 hours a week, and therefore I am not even 20% finished with the ability wheel. I love the modern horror theme of the game, based on H.P. Lovecraft among others. Game reuires you to think, and it is not as easy as many other MMO's, holding your hand as you go. There are "investigation" missions that requires you to maybe look up a clue on the ingame browser, or requires you to learn morse code for example. Story and voice acting is done remarkably well, but I never dobuted this, seeing Tornquist is the director of the game. Graphics and sound is the best there is in a MMO. Well worth your money, even if you play it for only a month.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MrSmith The Secret World is a really fun game to play
Try The Secret World out! Do not rush, but let yourself dive slowly into the game and enjoy how it starts to grow on you.
TSW is more fun than any themepark released in the last 10 years. The game is social and fun for roleplayers. Quests and storylines are very good in this game but people who "farm" probably will miss out on that. The missions are interesting, the NPCs have stories and character.
One other thing to note is that Funcom are already working on bringing in entire new zones, most games don't even do that unless there's a expansion pack.
As you probably understand by now, I can recommend The Secret World higly. 3 weeks in and I am still having a blast! If you too decide to try it out, enjoy!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Wolfsprout Unique Experience, hidden amongst mmo trappings
I've played many mmo's over the years and this is one of the few that feels to be trying something original. Too many times have games been trying to ride the coat tails of another's success.
If you are a fan of Modern Horror and enjoy a challenging game, here is your new home. The writing is superb and the sound quality amazing. The game is rough on your computer and takes a higher end rig to run beautifully, but once there... amazing. The gameplay needs some polish, but that is the pain of every mmo.
Give it a shot, it's not the horrid thing people say it is. It's not WoW or anything else. It is The Secret World and it definitely comes into the MMO market from it's own place.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Bigcrazyt Best MMO i have ever played.
This game is just so different from the others mmo, this game is kinda hard in the quests but that makes it more fun. The graphics is amazing,gameplay,sound is all amazing.I heard that many people complain about the population in the game, but that was long time ago. Theres alot more players now playing it. But one thing that was so cool to me, was that i was able to use my bible and real life items to find clues and anwers to some of the quest to complete it or uou could just google it. But still fun.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Fantomet My favourite game ever!
This game is incredible and awesome. Even if it has some weaknesses , we must admit that this game is a truly innovation in the MMO genre. Just give it a try and you will understand this is something you’ve never experienced before. For the first time in a MMO you will be focused on what you’re doing instead of be focused on the reward you will get for doing a boring quest. :)
Rated 9 out of 10 by Cuponoodle Wow...just wow
Wife and I picked this up on sale for 10 bucks each it's an amazing game. I have no idea how we missed this game for so long. The he game is great in about every way. If you get the chance and like mmo or even survival horror style games with a great story go for this title.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Persona Worst mmo
This game is worthless, there really is no one playing. Character creation is pretty bad. So pretty much all chaacters look the same. The faction thing which was supposed to make it great, does not seem to matter at all. Its a constant grind mmo with no lasting appeal to keep people playing.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Joff Best MMO game ever
This is the best MMO game I have played so far. The Secret World is a game that brings new interest into otherwise generic MMOs
