To those of us who’ve been with this game since the beginning, this game is one of the best things to happen to modern RPGs. It takes everything you ever loved about classic RPGs and combines them with gorgeous graphics.

Wildstar reviews roundup
Wildstar reviews roundup

It’s been exactly one month since the release of Wildstar. As it is with all MMOs, it take a long time for game critics to test the game and write a fair review on it.

There still isn’t a lot of reviews, but I think a month is long enough, and there are enough reviews to form a good idea about what the game is or isn’t.

Thankfully, Wildstar is getting mostly favorable reviews. On the plus side, it seems like most critics agree that Wildstar created a world full of fun characters and engaging combat. On the other hand, the questing system seems to be touted as generic.

Hit the jump for the full list of reviews.
