Time for WoW to step asideNigee | July 14, 2014 | See all Nigee's reviews »
Wildstar is like a cross between WoW, and the badassness of Borderlands. What i liked was that as far as the background and story of the game goes, it is there if you want it to be there. Most of the game is covered in syrupy humor, so quests almost always have some laughs in it for you, sometimes subtle, sometimes up front. The gameplay is great. You cannot just simply stand still and spam your abilities, you need to constantly be moving to connect and avoid the telegraphed attacks, which appear on the ground, and are very easy to see. While in PvE this can be useful for helping avoid some of the heavier attacks, in PvP attacks come out much faster, although in a smaller area. This forces you to rely on a mixture of your limited dodge rolls (they regenerate fairly quickly) and various movement skills. The classes can all be played in a mixture of ways, and resetting your skills can be done out of combat any time, so you can always come prepared to a fight, and keeps the gameplay fresh. If you are coming from WoW, it's important to note that this game only just released, so expect for more content to be added and gameplay refined.

Wildstar is a nice breath of familiar, yet fresh air in the genre of themepark mmorpgs, The stylized world is fun and engaging, and the animations and models smooth and polished. Quests aren't atypical, but many can be skipped if you so choose without much repercussion. Some are quite hilarious given the game's focus on humor. The level up announcer is amazing, by the way. The PvP is fun with the action/skill shot based combat system, and the dungeons and adventures challenging and rewarding. The Path and unique Crafting systems adds another layer of variety for players to level up and explore the world of Nexus. Overall, Wildstar did not reinvent the wheel. Instead, it made one out of pure adamantium and kick-butt-ery. A great game for those wanting a traditional mmorpg experience with new twists and turns and fantastic humor. You can pay the monthly fee with in game effort and gold, similar to PLEX, so that's something to think about if you don't mind the initial retail purchase. Go and explore Nexus, cupcake.

This game brings back features users once thought lost. It brings back a classic wow feeling with a more modern approach. It brings back the attunements for raids and a great addon support package. It has end game raids that are difficult. If you are looking for an mmo that takes skill to play this would be it. It does have its problems with some leveling gaps in the story which kind of annoy, it can be circumvented by the use of the pvp finder to level effectively.
Good times, lots to doStronzo | June 14, 2014 | See all Stronzo's reviews »
Good Amount of fun no shortage of quests, crafting system that's more of a mini-game than anything. I had a blast playing wildstar. the PvP element and end game were fun and some times hard to follow but over all worth the effort. Its challenging with out being so hard its impossible but by no means easy to lvl earn money or gain new gear. effort and playing it smart = win.
Really does not get much better then this!ewoksrule | June 13, 2014 | See all ewoksrule's reviews »
This MMO has everything you want and does it better then most. The challenge level is way up there with mostly skill shot combat and finely tuned dungeons but man, is it rewarding! I have not been this enthralled in a MMO since early days with the genre.
