Well, I got into the Open Beta test. After taking two days (well, 42 hours only) to download the client, I've been able to play...some (when the servers aren't down, like they are right now, that is).

I can say that I've been really enjoying the game. The controls are easy to learn (actually the only hard part for me is switching between chat modes). The graphics are good, and they definately evoke a "Warcraft" feel (if you played WC3, you'll readily be able to identify certain creatures and classes). There are gobs of emotes do try out (dancing is something everyone seems to do at the drop of a hat). The game is definately more fun when you join a party to adventure, but the quests are all geared for your character's level, so you COULD do them all by yourself.

I would definately recommend this game to someone who's looking for a good MMORPG. Anyone else have comments to share?

I got into the second wave of the closed beta. The part I enjoyed the most was that it's possible to progress without having to grind xp. I went got up to level 40 with a Night Elf rogue, and never really got bored doing quests. While they generally are either kill a certain amount of monsters, kill a npc, or deliver an item, they are delivered entertainly and make it seem worthwhile.

The geography is very impressive. Each race has a unique feel to it, and each new location I discovered was cooler than the last. For example, the dwarf city is a huge cavern under a mountain, and the goblins have a trading post in a tropical jungle. I liked the combat - seemed that with each patch, classes became more balanced, each one with something to contribute. I didn't do pvp much, but the later raid quests and battlegrounds seem promising. There's apparently Hero Classes for when your character maxes out, which makes the endgame last even longer.

WoW seems pretty easy for a casual gamer to get into, which I guess is what they were going for. You don't have to play 12 hours a day to keep up with others, and plenty of different secondary professions and skills to make yourself useful. I'm trying to talk myself out of purchasing it - ut I don't know how successful I'll be.
