He didn't really do a proper review imo. What, it is just like wow, it has bugs, it is an mmo? What else? I expected a bit more from him ;P.

Funny review, especially the man-cow comment about Schwarzenegger xD

This review was actually quite encouraging about the game, at least for a ZP review. Obviously it was not completely positive the way that the Painkiller review was. Still, the criticisms he brings up aren't bad per se, they're just funny to talk about. eg the PvP mentality wherein you're often running away from rampaging players, or watching another player desperately run away from you. (Oh, and the fact that he was running around naked probably encouraged people to attack him :p)

He had to choose Necro, lol. :P

Always love Yahtzee. Gotta know he didn't play much considering he doesn't think armor does anything. xP

armor really doesnt do anything till mid 30's when you start getting gear out of sanctum. Well shields used to be really useful but there just sorta meh now....
My HoX has ran around in a loincloth since i made him and hes now lvl 40, another friend of mine rolled a demonologist at the same time, we have seen no major difference in how fast I get killed comparatively.

That aside I absolutely love ZP, if you want proof of how good the guy is just try and sort through all the loser copycats on youtube trying to find one of his videos. There must be a hundred of em!

This review is 100% true,i bought the game around a week after the game was released. I don't know if its a good thing or a bad thing for a MMORPG to not get you addicted but i personally dont feel like playing that much.Sometimes i can be weeks without playing(my guardian has been in the 25-30 bracket for months now). I remember on WoW when i could go for hours playing the game. The game feels like a paid beta,2 months and theres still things to fix,though Funcom HAS fixed a lot of bugs.
If you bought a high end PC or video card etc and you think no game will ever use all of that performance until a couple of years,this will. The game either looks like crap, or it looks great but feels like a screenshot collage. dropping the fps to single digits if theres "too much" going on on screen. My PC(3.0 ghz dual core, 2gb ram,8800 GTS 320mb on 1650x1080 resolution) runs this game with a mix of video options on mid to high at around 20-50 fps.

The UI is a piece of crap. The classes are completely unbalanced,and as Yathzee said,12 classes on 4 types will be a pain to balance.

The game IS full of retards,griefers,assholes, the game is in dire need of the pvp overhaul or whatever they are going to do with it.

Gathering and crafting are completely useless from what i have seen.

Guild cities are stupid too,i would go to one alone and the only thing to do was the Trader. just some buffs and shit.

If nothing is done before wrath and WAR comes out,AOC will just fade away.
