Really seriously a must read review of Darkfall. At Eurogamer of all places. The bit towards the end where the reviewer steps out and gives his thoughts on the entire practice of reviewing MMOs I especially enjoyed.
On Darkfall, it's absolutely not the kind of game I'd get into. Nothing infuriates me more than clunky controls, and even reviews from screaming fanboys make the controls sound clunky. Yeah I guess I'd get used to them eventually. But I could also get used to being blind and crippled. Doesn't mean I'd like to. Further, every single review I have read makes it sound raising your skills is tortuously slow. No thanks.
