The only surprise is that it took this long.
If you have played both WildStar AND any (currently) F2P game (including FireFall and Rift), don't be surprised how short WildStar falls compared to both (or even DCUO, my go-to F2P MMO for four years now).
I'll take another look after the reboot - however, for now, I'll remain on the sidelines.
I dunno, I like it better than firefall which is an entirely different game altogether, and rift is also different as it's a fantasy game with a completely different graphical style. I dunno, I like Rift to some degree but I can't play it for very long... but then that's true of most MMO's nowadays I grow tired of them fast. DCUO eh... I'm not a huge fan really.feels to much of an open world with pick up quests spread all over, and all very barren and lacking.
There isn't many if any MMO's that really catches me any more. if EQN had been EQ3 instead perhaps. I stil have fond memories of EQ2 and riding out from the "good" city into the lush forests and hills killing gnolls and riding through the mountain pass and forts. unfortunately, like Rift, it's realistic graphical style ages terribly and my memories are far better than the actual game looks don't trust memories, they embellish a lot
