Anybody else been playing The Secret World?

Ravenholdt
A friend of mine recently got me into it, and after an initial learning curve of three or four hours, I'm quite enjoying it. I'm wondering if any other Ravenholdters are playing, and what they think of it.
What is it even about?

I went to the website and it had zero information about what the game was evens supposed to be about.

Granted this was a month ago.

Hell even the Wikipedia article had minimal information on it.

It's an MMO set in the modern world. You're part of one of three secret societies, struggling to either control or protect the world. I've only just started playing, but it's got a very creepy vibe, very Lovecraftian.

I've spent most of my time fighting zombies, creepy monsters from the depths, and giant things I can't even describe.

There are no levels and no character classes. You pick the combination of weapons and magic that you want to use, and buy abilities as you go. You then combine the abilities.

I won't sing its praises too loudly, as there are a lot of issues (as with any new MMO), but it's a refreshing change of pace. They're taken a lot of the stuff I really dislike about wow and fixed it.
I thought about it, but they're still running ads for you to preorder the game when it's already out. I don't trust any game that has that terrible of PR management.
