I found the interface to be very slow and hard to control; the camera never felt quite right either.  Couldn't enjoy the game very much.

The community in an MMORPG makes a bit of difference. It can determine whether you like the game or not. The community in this game is, to put it nicely, insanely atrocious. Most people speak in 1337 speak, which is the least of your problems. Most everyone is a pain in the rear in this game: being a newbie in this game is like being a woman in Wulfgar's tribe in RA Salvatore's books: basically, you're treated like a piece of crap. Which brings me to another point: most every person in RS is an egotistical son of a (BEEP). Sure, you have the people that'll help you out and be considerate in game if you're level 5 with bronze equipment, but most will be like "LOL U N00B IM LEVEL 61 AND I GOTZ TEH FULL RUNE LOL M I RITE M I RITE". The community in this game, I reiterate, is insanely atrocious. Don't expect anything good.

I just started playing again and I've had a great time so far. But I will admit that like many people have stated, the game's community is absolutely horrible. Of course...half of them are kids and teenagers with no manners and sense of decency (not that there aren't any adults playing, there are still plenty). But I usually just ignore the jerks and get on with my day, and it's really not a big deal at all. Other than that, I personally don't find the game all that bad. It's one of those games that you either love or you hate. For some people, the gameplay is extremely boring and outdated...for me, I like it for the most part, and It keeps me interested. For those that haven't tried it, I'd recommend giving it a shot, you really don't have anything to lose other than time (which if you're an mmo player, then you obviously have time to blow)...and if you don't like it, then no harm done.

runescape would be great if it the devs would just remake it from scratch to compete with some other mmos. I'm sure the have the money for it. The game is good as is, bt with the dated graphics and slow grind I can't stand playing for long.

I've never played Runescape. Nor will I ever want to. Ragnarok Online was my first MMO, and it far supercedes Runescape.

It's good for what it is... and actually fun to play.


If they ever decided to make a 3d  version of this game I'd play it in a heartbeat.

Well, I decided to play it again after many years. If anyone else is willing to give it a go. Send me a pm, maybe we can work together. I know the community blows, so finding friends is going to be hard.

I thought it was a good review. This game has been successful for a number of years with a population most modern MMO's would love to have.


As you say it does have a certain charm to it. Plus it has regular updates to keep it fresh. I have tried to leave RS, done the WOW, Aoc, Warhammer, SWG (post Nge) thing but keep coming back. The further you progress the better it gets.


As a previous poster said this is not so much an action  game, which for me is ok. Sometimes after a stressful day at work I enjoy logging in and thinking 'Ok think I'll do a bit of farming, then some crafting followed by hunting butterflies' etc.


Yes the community can be rough, particualrly around the GE which seems to be the epicentre of every scammer, tool  and beggar on the planet, but I have met so many great people when out in runescape questing etc that it kind of balances it out for me. I laso imagine the GE is the Mos Eisley of runescape which makes it more bearable.


Anyway I think if your score is based on content and the amazing amount of things you can do then in my eyes it definetly deserves an eight.


I do agree with others on the grinding though, it can be pretty painful when going for the higher levels.

Runescape is 3D. It's played in a sort of Isometric view and you can't freely rotate the camera in all directions, but the entire world and all aspects of it are 3D models.

Unless you mean the gimmicky "3D" that hollywood is going nuts over (again) to distract people from the fact that they've run out of interesting new movies to make and are running low on comic book characters and old-TV shows to adapt that people would actually want to see.

Regarding the community, RuneScape has it's fair share of idiots like most MMOs. The difference is, you're not limited to 10,000 jerks on a single server. You can log into any server you want whenever you feel, and no doubt will find people with whom you can get along. The nature of the gameplay requires that you have a lot of AFK time for many of the skills, so you end up messaging lots of people and getting to know other players very well.


 


I missed this aspect when I moved on to other games, where people are constantly coming and going and have no time to talk about anything, unless they want something from you.


 


So there are jerks in RuneScape, but you absolutely can find a few dozen out of the millions who play that you will be able to get along with. And you not only get along with them, but you actually interact with them personally. There are few other MMOs that offer that.

Excellet review, I still play runescape on the side and still have a members account. I recently reached my long time goal of getting combat lvl 100, and find myself wishing that modern MMOs would take a few ideas from the creative folks at Jagex.

Skepticals, the glasses that automatically make you a skeptic!

Why are people defending it because its a browser based game or that it's made in Java or that its 10 years old? That doesn't make a difference. Rate it, as an MMO, by today's standards. Anything else would be doing the industry and this game a disservice. Isn't that really the point of a re-review? To see how the new content or changes or how it has aged stacks up? Well, geuss what, it doesn't stack up well. It's archaic and uninvolved game design, we've moved beyond this. Far beyond.If you like clicking on rocks and logs and crafting 10k daggers just to get to the next level, well, good for you! The rest of us will off be playing more interesting things.

Reviewed alongside new titles with exceptions made because of the graphical nature of the game - RuneScape is more varied, unique, and interesting than most games half its age. Sure it is heavy grind, but there are just so many options and avenues to explore, and lets not forget, every MMO is heavy grind, crafting in WoW will see ou forge crazy amounts of useless armour and weapons. RuneScape is archaic in some place but in others it shines, the re-review is simply based on what is available, and that surprisingly turns out to be something amazingly refreshing.
