The Secret World

It looks like MMO developer Funcom isn't going to be making any more huge games for a while. The company announced it will concentrate on "more focused, systems-driven games that have a high degree of community and player interaction as "these games require less time and development cost to bring to market."  In other words: Smaller games.

The sales of The Secret World, the company's latest product, were not as high as the company would have liked. The game has sold "only" 200,000 copies, below the company's expectations. 

According to Funcom, The Secret World's disappointing sales were due partially to the announcement of the Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria release dates around The Secret World's launch period.

While I was intrigued by the premise of The Secret World, the reviews and some of the other buzz around The Secret World kept me from playing it. What about you guys? What do you think of The Secret World?
