Good...not great...but overall...not bad.

I gave this a whirl the other night. Not bad. Graphics are decent, storyline is what it is, but overall a decent free to play, microtransaction based title. As more and more F2P titles are released in the states, perhaps more gamers will become accustomed to, and accepting of the free to play business model.
