I've been playing Path of Exile a lot recently. I am blown away by how awesome the game is on so many levels. I was surprised, when I did a search on Giant Bomb and couldn't find anything other than a wiki entry.
Here are some reasons why I think PoE is worth a review and/or QL:
- It's an incredible deep game. Probably the best ARPG since Diablo 2.
- The game has AAA production value. Great art assets, atmosphere, dialogue, and voice acting.
- It's the only free-to-play game that I know of that's truly not pay-to-win. The only thing you can buy that affects gameplay is additional stash space. If Giant Bomb has a policy against reviewing free-to-play games, I think PoE deserves an exception.
To warn anyone that's thinking of trying PoE out, the first Act on the first difficulty setting is a bit dry. However, if you stick through to Act 3, the game opens up and gets better and better.
I did a search on the forums to see if a similar post was already made. I couldn't find anything. If you're interested in seeing PoE reviewed, please vote and bump this thread. Thanks!
