Very slow paced, slow traveling and there isn't anything really special or interesting besides the ability to craft spells, which some spells can be quite hilarious, but that fun factor is short lived. Also, there is no way to change time or fast foward time (i.e. Elder Scrolls games you can wait or sleep till the sun rises), so if you made it to a town and its night time where shops are closed and people are locked up in their homes you have to... leave the game running or explore.. or something till the sun rises. Lockpicking and pickpocketing is by little minigames that gets old fast. I can't bring myself to continue playing single player mode at all after an hour or two.
Non-shared loot can get frustrating if you are not playing with friends. A little more fast paced than single player with a lot of mobs to kill to keep you busy, and the extra mobs to help you level up faster. If you party with lots of people who like to summon mobs it will turn into a sh*tfest quickly. Also no more than 2 melee summoned creature per target; the rest of your summons will stand still and do nothing blocking other players since you can't walk through mobs. There are different types of Multiplayer settings, I spent most of it on Adventure playing with a friend. I randomly disconnected and saw I was accused of using a trainer and got temp banned. I was low level and poor with little to no equipment upgrades, a lot of empty accessories (no gems), ran away from a bunch of mobs, while using lots of health potions and half dying all the time with my friend. There are better games to grind that have a much larger community (say ~50 players max online/ingame).
BTW I didn't have any problems with registering (I have a router + firewall) and only gave general information (don't think they have to be true either).
Bought this game on sale for ~$5 including a DLC.
Don't bother with this game unless you have friends to play with in multiplayer and at the really low price I got it for.
4/10 (+2 sale price, +2 magic crafting system).
