Frankly I didn't see a damn thing that could draw me to this game that the others don't already do.

hmmm, I just see a fun game.... to each his own I guess.

Maybe you got it confused with Warhammer 40k? their sci-fi universe.
Though that is pretty gritty..

If you were looking for graphics go play Crysis. This game is about RVR...It does it, and does it well. This is easily the most fun I've had gaming in a long time.

this game is what WOW should have been pvp wise. If Blizzard implemented anything half as good as real RVR they would still be making my $15 a month.

If they are gonna copy everything else, they should have ATLEAST upped the graphics.

That is the Magus...I actually really like it, its something abit different and if you are a hardcore warhammer fan then you will appreciate that that is how the Chaos magus do actually fight in the original game.
I think its great that mythic have kept the pc game close to the original Warhammer.

I started a magus and im loving it!
I also started a Disciple of Khaine and I wasnt qquitre as impressed, but I will keep trying a few different classes to pick a few I like.

So far I think everything about the game is superior to wow.
Better UI for sure.

The graphics look amazing and the game play style seems easy enough to pick up.

Yeh....this ones a keeper.
Goodbye wow....finally

Yeh it is interesting to hear what dddifferent people think of the game so far.
personally..Im super impressed with everything.
But also...Im so over wow that I couldnt care less whether I never see that game again or not! lol
I like the fact that playing destruction, the characters actually LOOK dark and evil....not like wow's pretty fluffy I"m a bad guy but I look good" kinda toons....
I prefer the UI in comparison to wows.
I do think that they do need to make the characters abit more customisable as i found there were alot of options for making your toon distinctive...But Im guessing that will come in time.

I thought game felt new and exciting and I think that Blizz is going to have a real contender here.
