In the beginning, we start as "immortals" as a means to explain why we don't die. Eventually, we strive to become gods as we level-up. The game play is pretty much what you would expect from an MMO --- kill ten to these, pick up ten of those, and repeat. If you can't beat a boss, level up until you can crush him. As time went on, the game felt a little too grindy and I was not impressed with the voice acting.
So is it worth it? By in large, I'm going to give Skyforge a thumbs up. Having said that, I'm wasn't hooked on the game and I'll return to my other MMOs.
