I consider myself a somewhat of a sophisticated gamer but this deluge of ads from Evony seem so cheesy.
It looks like a mix of Second Life without the first person perspective aka a lot of soft core porn and gambling. But then again that's just information gathered by their own marketing campaign.
It's apparently one of those allegedly free games that you have to pump in real money and time to succeed. I disdain that kind of mindless gaming.
Plus strategy games seem dedicated to far too much work
and far less time for plot and play.
I'm not against open ended style games as I have often played Sims for hundreds of hours on end.
My advice? Stay away from this garbage/time waster.
