I played the open Phase 2 beta quite a bit this weekend, which ended last night at 4 AM. I could only make it until 2:30.
Although a big part of it is nostalgia, I'm sure, I really enjoyed the game. I found it to be somewhere in between WoW and Skyrim in many respects: combat/game mechanics are something more than Skyrim (a plus) but something less than WoW (a minus but when I just have to learn to live with now that my days of being able to play WoW are long gone); story/lore/etc. is something less than Skyrim but more than WoW. The game is overall simpler than WoW, but I need that. And I really want something that is a bit more involved than Skyrim from a combat/mechanics standpoint.
I made it to level 19 as a pugilist and level 10 as a leatherworker when I finally crashed last night.
