I really enjoy the game. The graphics are quite lovely compared to other games I've looked at playing. I sifted through a number of them before settling, and I'm actually glad I choose this one. I would love to enjoy the maximum settings for the graphics, but it's currently too much for my laptop. Hopefully I'll be able to fix that soon!
The game-play is also smooth aside from the bouts of lag (although being able to pan the camera around with the keyboard ((for example, like A and D for panning, Q and E for strafing)) would be so nice). Something that stands out to be a little bothersome is the slight delay between using a skill and it actually striking. I can see how it could make you learn to anticipate your opponents next move, but I'd rather be able to react more quickly to their move instead of having to anticipate it.
And for the most part the community is very friendly and helpful, which is a huge plus in my book. A minus with a part of the community that I'm not a big fan of is "ninja-viting." Like a player inviting you to their group or guild without saying anything first. I can see how it could be more 'convenient', but it strikes me as a bit.. well, annoying. It doesn't take much to shoot me a whisper or something to ask if I'd like to.
I hadn't really participated in any PvP events until the final RvR's, but they were very fun and I enjoyed it. I hope to really get into that part of the game in the Open Beta.
All things aside, I can see this becoming big in no time. It's a great game.
