Well i have a phew questions on TR. I am seriously concidering buying the game but as said i need a phew questions anwsered.
1-Apone buying the game is there a 1 month free period? 2-How good of a PC do you need to have for it to run on? 3-This is a MMO/RTS type game so i was wondering how is the balance? i mean is it just run around shoot! or do you acually get to places where the story advances?

Yes first month is covered in the buy price.

The game is Scaleable (Spec'ed up or down) so you can play it on low and high end systems, that said I have been able to play it ok on my 3GB CPU 1GB RAM Laptop. and it played smoothly enough, and looks good still on low settings.

Like all MMOs there is a grind, but unlike MMOs the grind is the fun of the game, you get totally engrossed in battle, franticly fighting for survival. Given the FPS elements the combat is quick and nothing like I have played before (played some 10 MMOs in my time). Gone are the 1,2,1,1,1,3,2,1,1,1,1,2,2,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,1,1,1,1 combats of the past. My fingers thanks me and my keyboard might last longer than a month with out the keyboard mashing.
The game is still young but there is still alot of story there to be had. Combat is pervasive element of the game given its a war. Benfits have been added to encourage grouping and not destroy the balance, there is no XP hit for grouping. You seem to get the same xp you would if you soloed, but its safer. I think the game has alot of potential personal but share concerns that it might get stale if its just combat based on all missions.
