Played it for a few hours today and so far it's great. It's a less complex PoE (but with plenty of depth) with probably the best visuals in a top down aRPG. If you're a fan of the genre, it's a must play. If not, it's a great place to start.
Been playing Diablo 3 casually (it can get repetitive after a while) since 2015 and Wolcen feels like a great and fresh adition to the genre. Loved the fluid class system and the visuals are really something. Couldn't get into the story though.
With that said, it had a lot of bugs on the launch. Personally I encountered some game breaking ones that bummed me down, like, when I lost all my progress -- I've played several hours in, got pretty ahead on the questline and lost it all.
For now I'm giving it some time so devs can patch these bugs.
