The first, and most obvious question you should ask yourself is: do I want to play a game like this? If you’re used to more standard shooters, it might be an adjustment moving into a persistent RPG environment. Any MMO is going to have some repetition, it’s not going to have a whole lot of conclusion in its story mode, and it’s going to take up a lot more time than a standard single player game. So know that going in: it might look like a very familiar game on the surface, but the overall pacing is going to be a little bit slower. It’s the sort of game that asks not just for a a dozen hours or so while you play, but a more consistent spot in your gaming routine
