here is my first impressions, on topic.

do not buy this game. I myself have suffered through some horrible launchs to get at the dirty gold nugget at the center of a game i was really behind. only if you have been following earthrise for a long time and are super excited to get invovled in it should you buy this game. If not, dont bother. Its horrible and will take months of "beta" (live game) to straighten out. If you want a broke game with potential go buy FFXVI (no, please dont..pre-order Rift or get one of about half a dozen great free to plays out there).  Lots of politics and money in MMO launches and they probably were forced to get this out the door as is(go read historys on launches like SoEs Vanguard)

It's a very hard position for MMO writers to be in when talking about newly launched games. Anyone with an unbiased and neutral position will find it very difficult to balance actually talking about gameplay and offsetting this with the various bugs and trappings that come with a launch. What this article does is give an impression of gameplay and I feel Garrett has not mentioned too much about the launch state because it could change within a days time or even as long as six months - the fact is though, the bugs, glitches, lag, all the rest of it will be sorted out at some point. Does slam a small-time indie game because of its lack of polish at launch or do we take a balanced view and say "yes its not perfect but let's concentrate on what really matters and that is gameplay".

Seriously, unless you own a very high end computer, stay away from this game, it will be unplayable for you.  There are so many problems with this game I am suprised that some people are even supporting it.  While the game concept might not be bad, it is a majorly unfinished game.  There are so many features they have planned to put into this game that should have been there at launch, I just don't see how an "indie" company would be able to add them in a reasonable amount of time.  I got to play about 20 hours of this game five days before release, was kind of shocked they were releasing the game.  I don't think I have experienced a worse performing game on my computer, and I have played A LOT of games. 

There isn't even things like a friends list.  There is no ignore feature either.  There are almost no game settings to speak of, and the ones that are there do not even do anything.  There is no way to edit keybindings unless you edit the .lua file.  There was also a large number of people who couldn't even get game keys and without a game key you can't even register for their forums.  I have read about people still waiting to even play the game they bought on release day, because they still don't have a key.  I read that some people emailed support to get a valid game key, and recieved it quickly, while some people doing the same thing have waited over a day.  They claimed that they were going to have new servers on release and that they would be located in the east coast.  Turns out the servers are located in Los Angeles and they kept their login server in Bulgaria.  I have not read a single person stating that the latency is ok.  Many people reporting insane latency problems, massive desync issues....well I could go on.  I don't know how they expect to have a MMOFPS hybrid with constant 300-800ms latency.  This is all from their forums.

I don't have anything against the game or the company, but it was silly to release a game in this state, it has really turned me off of it.  I will check back in three months and see if it is playable for me, but I am not holding my breath.

Most of the features in this game are exactly what I am looking for in an MMO. However based on my experiances with the beta just a scant week before game release (other posters have done a good job listing the most glaring issues, I see no reason to list them twice), I made the decision to steer clear of this game until they get it into a state I find worthy of my patronage.


If you are a gamer who is willing to put up with a few headaches in order to play a game that is different from most of the main stream ones, then you would probably enjoy this title.


If however game glitches, some of them fairly serious, will kill your game enjoyment, I say give Masthead a couple of months to get the bugs worked out.

I'd like to thank all from their honest opinions of the game's current status. I was really close on buying the game and I usually don't mind about few bugs etc. but if a game really is in a condition that only angers the player... *sigh*

Being indie company isn't an excuse. I wouldn't buy a bicycle with only one tire either,  just because it was made in small workshop.

this released with that in any other industry would be downright unlawful to ship a product in such a sorry state.

After playing beta my decision is clear: avoid at all cost.

"The game is worth trying out"

 I can not stress enough how bad this game is. I really hope people take a note and avoid at all costs.

 Anyone compairing this to SWGs is very very wrong. SWGs had an amazing character creation system and a good looking game. Earthrise has neither you get a few choices of face and a couple of hair styles. Then logging on the movement is horrible and the controls are even worse. Its some kind of mouse qwe effect. |Not good. And then combat for a fps you don't even get additional damage for hitting a head. This is going to be heading the way of APB I just don't think it will last that long.


Everyone that has bought this trash should be given a refund as the game isn't as advertised and it is almost unplayable.

yeeeeah I played the beta as well, the FPS issues alone are enough to keep me from playing it. I can run almost everything out there at thier highest settings and get very playable framerates, this game? nope, poorly optimized engine, thanks but no thanks.

"The interface is tricky to figure out. Having to switch from explore mode to combat mode in order to get the fight going just seems like a hurdle that is not needed. If I have a gun I should not have to click to enter combat and then click to use it. Perhaps in the future they will fix the speed in which you can go into combat. For now, it limits the player."

Why the hell do developers do stupid things like this?  Is there a valid rationale for making pulling a gun and firing it, slower and clunkier than it needs to be?  You should be able to slip into combat simply by shooting at something, not by having some sort of declarative action to switch from one mode of play to another.  I mean, why does exploring and fighting need to be mutually exclusive?  I think the average PvPer can walk and chew gum at the same time.

Arbitrary speed bumps are never a good idea, especially in a game that highlights PvP.

I don't see the potential everyone is talking about.,it's a theme park grindfest.

You want to craft something? grind 500 mobs.

You want to lvl up? grind 500 mobs or do 100 "kill 10x" quests.

What's so innovative about this game?


And don't even try to buy it in 3 months (if it's still alive),you will NEVER catch up,this game is more gear based than Aion!


If you want a game with potential,play FFXIV,not this scam.

I'm going to wait a couple months before I try it out. I know I'll love it like Tabula Rasa but I'll wait.


Good first impression too.

Let me first say that I honestly think this game simply looks bad from the various pieces of footage and the reviews do not exactly convince me. I'm also extremely sceptical toward games with big feature lists released by small companies in general.

However, I am planning to try this game if it lasts a couple of months. Because I simply like the idea and the style it has.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

I liked Star Wars Galaxies, and I like Earthrise. But People should really wait.

I read some positive articles about the game and tried it. It has much potential, but at the moment, I got a framerate of 3-11 frames, and a mass of smaller bugs. Nothing really bad, but its not really playable, I get headache after 20 minutes of playing.

But I somehow believe it will be better in 2-3 month ;)

In many ways,the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment.

We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.

But there are times when a critic truly risks something and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends.

Your primary job should be to inform potential customer about a product. If you deliberately leave  out things that will impact his experience of said product you will lose credibility.

Just like you lost your credibility for me when you posted a preview about Darkfall and not mentioning all the issues present with the lag, hacks, craptastic UI, the horrible animations and so on. Rather the preview was rather postive which lead me to buy the game, just go find out that it was barely playable.

Imo, you are doing it again with Earthrise... but fool me once...

This piece doesn't claim to be a review, but claims to be an in-game impression.

If the writer did not experience a particular problem during his or her gameplay experience, then that problem would not make sense to be noted in an in-game impression piece. I don't see why people feel the writer has a responsibility to comment on his or her impression of other user's problems in this type of piece.

That shouldn't seem to constitute a guarantee that all experiences will be similar, nor does it come across as a review of the state of the game.

this game looks horribly dated. global agenda has better graphics, and it was developed like 5 years ago.

For a good acid test when reading "First Impression" game articles.....imagine if the game is instead a...."CAR".

You will soon see for yourself the value or lack of value of such articles when it comes to games especially MMORPGs.

What is it about this game that is suppose to appeal to SWG players? I find that really hard to believe. Any SWG players give this a shot and feel that way?
