Got into this game a long time ago when it originally came out. Played it for about six months and quit because it was too repetitive. Now that it's free to, figured I might as well check out the new content.
I've always been a huge fan of the Cthulhu mythos, the Illuminati and wacky conspiracy theories. So far-fetched and crazy that you just want them to be true. This game takes all of them and turns them into a world where everything you ever heard is the absolute truth.
The combat is a hybrid of your usual "tab-target, press action key repeatedly until dead" and action-based. For instance: In order to use your shotgun skills, you have to lock-on to a target. However, when you fire your shot, it sprays buck-shot and hits everything in the cone, not just your target. Same with sweeping strikes from melee weapons. If your weapon passes through them in the course of the animation, they likely took damage. It is repetitive, but fun at the same time. Attacks from enemies are the same, but it has the area of effect on the ground with an animation to show you the timing on the skills execution. You can move out of the way of it or, if it's tough to dodge, you can double-tap any direction to dash out of the way.
The questing is your usual MMO-fare. Kill this, gather that, figure out this riddle. The cool thing is, everything is voiced and every mission has a cut-scene with the mission-giver telling you what is going on. Thought that was a nice touch. Really brings you into the world more. Plus, the riddles can be actually tough at times. They don't spell out each and everything for you.
Over all, I enjoy the game. The environments are very well thought out and damn creepy at times. The PvP arenas are fun and can impact the world for your faction. Give it a try.
