    Hows it look, does it match Oblivions game detail etc.... Is it better than WOW, Everquest2 and Guild Wars.

    Yes to the last three, but no it does not match Oblivion.

    Haven't played the game, but from the pics I've seen online, it doesn't hold a candle to Oblivion's level of detail; I guess developers have to cut corners when designing a MMORPG in order to reduce lag for most systems...

    I don't see how. When you make a mass multiplayer online game and want as large of a user base as possible and maximize the amount of profit, developing a game with oblivion'esque graphics would alienate quite a few potential customers who have lower spec'ed systems.

    I currently do not know of any mass multiplayer online game that comes close to the raw details of normal single/multi player style games. Sure, there are a few out there that are pretty high end but not Obilivion high end.

    Take a look at the most poplular ones available atm. WoW, Guild Wars and a few others can take advantage of high end systems but will run nicely on systems with specs as low as Pentium 3/4 and AMD Athlon T'Bird/XP chips and 64MB video cards.

    Thats most likely the case!

    No it definitely does not. However as MMORPG's go it's very good.

    Does this game have potential to be bigger than WoW?

    IMO, i dont think it will. "Aion" i think will be the MMO of 2008. Aion uses the Farcry engine. Im waiting for E3 for more news about this game. I played LoTR Online beta its not bad, but the gameplay isnt smooth like WoW imo.
