It's unique in everything outside of combat. Combat itself is really, really basic. All your decisions are made putting your deck together and itemising - once you're actually in a fight, it's a case of "is your build good enough for this mob at your gear level?" It's a result of having maybe 4 actives you use in rotation if you make a well rounded build.

Outside of combat, the game is great - atmosphere is awesome, voiceovers are great, the writing is amazing (I actually look forward to reading quest text at the end of a mission). I love the deck system except for the fact that it's really difficult to change the direction of your build or experiment as you level. Putting together a build is fun, but then you realise how bloody long you'll have to play for in order to get there, and you'll only have the one build to play with on the way.

So yea, my opinion: atmosphere/questing/writing is amazing, but combat is so stale (especially compared to GW2 - there's just no comparison). It's all about customising and trying out builds, which they just make too difficult to do.
Guild Wars2 - Beothel (Sylvari Ranger), Ailtrai (Human Engi))
SW:TOR - Beothel (Sith Marauder), Illusia (Chiss Sniper)
LoTRO - Beothel (Human Lore-Master)
WAR - Beothel (Chaos Marauder)

Hey all - long time.
Zero and I are playing Secret World too. Loving it. Best questing I've ever seen in an MMO to be honest.

Funcom has actually done a really nice job with this. Specially love the cross server environment. Can guild up with people on different servers, quest with them, everything. Really doesn't matter what server you roll on.

I've seen Southern Cross running around in game, but wasn't completely sure if it was this guild or not. There was another bunch in The Old Republic using the name... :/

Anyways, send us a tell if you see us in game...( or a guild invite :D ) Our characters are Zerowing and Wargrum (both Templars). Currently trawling through the the Savage Coast area and trying to 4 man the Inferno with a couple of friends. :lol:

Finished the main story arc last night.
I thought swtor's story arc's were good, they don't compare to the atmosphere, creepy'ness and often hilarity of the secret world. Of course I'm playing illuminati, half the shit they talk is snide bullshit, I love it.

still having fun running around with Fize solving mysterious mysteries. If you can resist the lure of walkthroughs the puzzle quests are awesome fun (if you like that kind of stuff). Game fills a completely different niche to GW2 IMHO :) (and is very good keeping me distracted for another 20 days :p)

GW2 wooooo! got a 4 day w/e planned release day.
