I played in the japanese free to play program.
The combat is great and dueling with my friends was great fun (Jumping over the lancers while they block and stabbing them with a giant ass sword is great)
The starting island doesn't have a lot going for it in terms of content. Every quest is more or less "kill stuff" but I suppose that can be forgiven due to it being more or less a tutorial. Lot more fun with friends though. And the combat makes it not feel dull. I get a certain satisfaction out of not taking any damage because I kept flipping over attacks and dodging.
Plus I know I missed out on things due to it being, you know, japanese.
I think the real meat of the game comes when you get further into the game (like the sandbox elements)
Also, this game is BEAUTIFUL. And it runs like a DREAM. Sadly I'm using a toaster so I can't see all the great detail but all my problems were due to playing on a japanese server.
No FPS problems running on low at all, unlike TOR which ran very sluggishly for whatever reason.
Also Norio Wakamoto
