Story Driven Approach

holydread | July 14, 2012 | Review of The Secret World NA - PC

While definitely not a solo-mmmo, The Secret World can feel more single-player oriented than others in the genre. While I fell in love with Rift's autogrouping and rift events, The Secret World takes a different approach and focuses on story and environment right out of the gate. Investigation missions mean you actually have to have explored, read the signs and leaflets scattered around town, looked at portraits, and spoken to the locals. It's different, it's interesting, and while I may not renew right away, I am thrilled to be playing it now and know that I can also pick up a subscription and step back in.
