I suggest people pay attention to the points made in this video, as many of them are very accurate in my eyes and likely in your eyes. Note: These reviewers did not do all that much research. Keep in mind, this is an "Impressions" video. Enjoy. Smiling





EDIT: Another impressions video I found that was fairly accurate as well.





-----------------------------------------------------------------------

If I were to give my own impressions, First-person is a bit lack luster. . . As much as I want to play in first person - without an FOV slider and the ability for creatures to just move right through me or jump over top of me. . it makes first person just more difficult to play in. I found myself getting mauled more so by a spider when in first person when compared to being in third person, basically. I can't imagine anyone playing first person in PvP. . It was hard to keep track of a creature that doesn't move all that much. I can't imagine how hard it would be to keep track of a player in an intense battle. Part of that is likely due to the fact that there is no FOV slider. Since I'm only able to see what's directly in front of me, if someone were to run around me or through me I lose vision of them completely.

Gotta say I agree with you on the first person part. I really really really want to play first person, and I do, but sometimes I feel very gimped due to the FoV being so small it looks like you're holding weapons on your ears.
FoV slider is a must-have for release, or at least having it increased.

I had no problems in first person. I found the game does a good job of letting you know which direction your being attacked from.

I found 1st person pretty satisfying, even more than 3rd person. The only drawback I could think about, is the fact that is more difficult for you to know where you will "land" when you dodge, but I believe you can get used to it easily, just by using in often.

I like first person and seeing the world as you wander through it makes you appreciate the detail of the game.

All you need do is bind your keys to your own individual preference. Or Plug in and use a PS3 controller instead.

Open betas are pretty much demos for people who preorder the game anyways.
