A word of caution: this game has some great innovations but has a very old school feel to it. You have to read the quests, manage your agro, set your skill deck up in a proficient manner, and always be aware of your surroundings. I find a lot of people logging on and complaining about this and that when what they are actually mean is the game is " too hard" which is nonsense; it just isn't a game for a My-first-MMO-was-WoW-Fanboys. ( and I am not knocking wow I played it for 3 years, I'm knocking some of the people that it attracted that would never have played MMOs).

It's a real pity that we don't see more of Spellborn. It has some great elements let down by really poor execution in other areas: it's the classic example of a mixed bag. If you like challenging, enjoyable combat and a highly PvP focused game (it doesn't advertise itself as such but Spellborn is very PvP orientated) you would be doing yourself a disservice by not trying it out.

A little patience will be required as the opening areas and the quests located therein leave a lot to be desired (why on earth they have you killing multiple types of boars for hours given the brilliant setting is beyond me).

My beef with the game, the thing that keeps me from subbing, is the client. I can some pretty bad framerates, especially for a game built on the Unreal (2?) engine, which usually screams on my computer. Now my rig far from state-of-the-art but I've read in the forums about people with sick computers that are having the same kinds of problems.

Otherwise the game has a lot going for it (god I love the visuals), but I just can't deal with crap fps and hitching.
