All in all I like Wildstar. It has a nice combat system, the double jumps are awesome, all my characters look really cool and there’s that nice sort of “Firefly feeling” to it.
The quest system is one of the things I like the best. You get to use a comunicator to turn in quests and get followup quests while you are out and about. And if you have a hard time finding the things you are looking for, you can get an arrow to show you where to go and how far away it is. So questing has a nice flow to it.
I also love the concept of paths. It’s something I hope to see in more games in the future. It gives an extra dimension to the character based on what you like to do as a player. The settler path was a clear choice for me. But I’ve also had fun exploring on one of my characters and killing stuff together with the hubby’s soldier.
There are some nice zones, interesting stories and cool creatures to experience. I really enjoyed helping out Elderoot in Everstar Grove…all up to the last part of the quest. Don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t done it, but it’s a sad panda moment.
But even though I like the game and feel exited thinking back of my time spent playing it, I have not managed to get past level 10 on any of my characters; mainly because I get over stimulated by the game. There are just so many things happening all at once; flashing graphics and lots of sounds.
But if you don’t mind that part I think it’s a great leveling experience. And it’s fun to play both solo and with friends.
