The Secret World

 

It seems like I've been on a bit of an MMO kick lately. Earlier this year I previewed Spirit Tales, and not too long ago my review of Tera hit the site. I enjoyed both of those games quite a bit. Not too long after playing Tera though, I got the...

If you've been looking for an MMO to check out that's not World of Warcraft, definitely give The Secret World a shot. While it's not perfect (it'd be nice if the in-game browser could remember your last visited page during the same game session), it's...

Disclaimer: this is by no means the definitive, now-and-forever, all-seeing all-knowing review of The Secret World, because that is impossible. This isn't a cop-out in case you disagree with me (although it handily doubles as that), it simply means...

Lots, but I personally love the tannoy announcements in the Illuminati base. “All water coolers have now been laced with LSD” for example.

Funcom's attempts at making MMORPGs never go quite like the company expects. Starting with Anarchy Online well over a decade ago, their online games have shown a streak of brilliance combined with multiple issues at launch, and unfortunately in the MMO...

For the third time straight, Funcom has released an MMORPG with some unique and interesting features alongside just a few too many problems to excuse. At the very least, The Secret World's issues are small when taken separately, and the charm of the...

The Secret World's puzzles, storytelling, and atmosphere make for captivating exploration--but occasional frustrations threaten the journey.

Creepy and unique modern-day setting invites you to explore ; Intricate writing and lore entries draw you into the ongoing narrative ; Investigation quests are an intellectual change of pace ; Open-ended combat system allows for experimentation ;...

Movement and combat are floaty and unsatisfying ; Unacceptable quest bugs and execution flaws lead to major frustrations ; Disappointing player-versus-player

Some of The Secret World's quests can be boiled down to the kinds of kill-this, fetch-that tasks you've seen in countless other games. Even when this is the case, however, developer Funcom does its best to give your actions context and chain missions...

I can't say whether you should pay a subscription for The Secret World, but if you do despite some quibbles of mine this is a world you will enjoy being part of. Albeit not a very secret one though.

This game is damn good in concept but it falters in the execution, so I have a hard time recommending you quit whatever you're playing now in order to jump into The Secret World. Only those with an appreciation for Funcom's adventure games or those who...

The Secret World- PC

 

The Secret World is a game with tremendous promise; it's just a shame that, on launch, I'm talking about promise rather than fulfilled promise. With the Investigation quests, its deliciously narrow builds, and its darkly fantastical - but not fantasy -...

The Secret World- PC

 

With a unique setting, immersive story and open-ended character system, The Secret World offers up a great MMO experience that's only held back by a problems with replay and weak PvP. If you're new to MMOs or have been playing them for years, The...
