Opening Up: The Secret World

Lots of footage from The Secret World reaches us via a new developer diary, showing factions, monsters and huge player versus player battlegrounds. At times, it's in danger of looking like every other MMORPG video out there, with flames and bullets flying back and forth, giant beasties roaring aggressively, and groups of oddly clothed gents and ladies flailing at each other in a determined but ineffectual fashion. That aside, I'm more interested in the setting and factions than just about any other upcoming RPG, and having real and mythical places existing alongside each other is fun stuff. Watch the video below and see what you think.

I rarely see something that has so much that I find exciting and so much that I find uninspiring. It's mostly the words I find exciting and the actual video of the game that turns me off. Should I just accept that I don't particularly enjoy this sort of game, no matter what the setting? Or is there going to be enough new here? Questions, questions.
