So, what's the bottom line, then? When it came time to score Galaxies, I initially thought of all the bugs and broken areas, the steep subscription fee and poor customer service, the often slow-paced gameplay and as-yet unrealized potential of the game. And yet, even with all these drawbacks, I find myself hooked -- there's fun to be had, if you're willing to dig through the frustrations. There's a large contingent of Galaxies players here at GameSpy (read our first impressions and pile-on features) and it's all we've spoken about at lunch for the last three weeks. In perhaps six months Galaxies will be everything its developers promised it would be, and if you're not willing to play an "avoid the bug" meta game, you'll definitely want to wait. It's a mark of how much potential it has, though, that even in its broken, buggy state, it's the most fun I've ever had with an MMO.
