...if it was a AAA title made by a company with a ton of money and resources.

The immense detail, freedom, and realism in this true sandbox MMORPG is unsurpassed. The problem is that the graphics, animations,  environments, production quality, etc are a bit lackluster and bug ridden, although I am still having a blast playing it.

In fact, I just began playing it for the first time a few days ago and I am blown away by pretty much everything. For me, it seems like almost a dream come true having just about everything I ever wanted in an MMORPG. It feels like a much more detailed multiplayer Skyrim and what Elder Scrolls Online should have been more like.

My dream is that a big company would buy this game and simply remake it with a better engine leaving almost everything else intact.

This game is pretty much the closest thing to an Ultima Online in 3D predecessor that I could ever imagine.

If only the majority of new MMORPGs coming out were more like this game, I think most of us would be a lot more excited.

Yeah, but at least they show your weapons and attacks like the Elder Scroll games. Unsheathing your sword in first person is actually kind of thrilling. But, it would be nice if they allowed an alternate 3rd person view.

Yes, you are in the initial phase of playing Mortal Online.  At first, it is a dream, and they promise everything no other game has in a long time.  But eventually, you will see how a developer can ruin a game completely.  The lack of bug fixes, the terrible EU lag (from USA), the small map with nothing at all going on besides select focus points, and a combat/crafting system that has gotten worse over time, not better....

 

I could go on.  I might play it still if it were free to play, however they have a free-trial-forever model, further showing you that what is in the mind of the developer is not the game or the immersion, it is the money, even when they make so little.

 

Your initial dreamy phase will pass.  Enjoy these few weeks while you can.  MO is always worth a look for anyone, but long term it doesn't have the team behind it to make it real.

One of the worst games I've tried. It fails in nearly every aspect but graphics. And graphics are not without problems either.

MO with a certain elder scroll games UI and combat would have owned. My personal gripe with MO and Darkfall(the 2 best sand box games out) is their slow and clunky UIs.

This pretty much.

Also, the title could be made for any game in existance. But there's always another BUT, or a dozen..

Unfortunately I've never got around to looking at MO much apart from an awesome pickpocket video iirc. What are it's best features, in your opinion/experience?

Yep, it had a lot of potential...

 

That's the problem with most of the sandbox MMO's we've seen through the last few years. They all have dazzling feature lists, but at launch most of those features are still "on the list", not in the game. And almost every time, that's where most of those features stay: "on the list".

 

It's always the same Catch-22, the features cannot be developed unless the game has a healthy paying population, but it can't attract a healthy paying population until all (or most) of the features are implemented. So the game limps along in some strange zombie-like state. Occasionally it shows some promising flickers of life, but then you realise it's just the reflection of distant lightning in those dead, staring, glassy eyes...

 

It's always struck me as odd that AAA MMORPG's usually promise 60% fewer features than the indie sandboxes, yet require 3 times as many people to deliver those features. The big difference between the two is that the AAA games actually launch, and with almost everything they promised.

If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

I made a mistake back then when I purchased a collector edition of this game, hoping for an "UO2". The production quality is catastrophic, the game is full of bugs and exploits. Not to mention the gank fest the game is.

This game could have been really good but they completely botched 2 things:

1) should have never had ffa pvp

2) shouldnt have been able to gain so many skill points by reading a book......Reading should have given 1 point in that skill and the rest should have to be raised by doing...By having reading give 70 points of skill, it made it so I, as a free played, basically just logged in, started a book, and logged out......THere was absoultely no point whatsoever for me to play because my skills as a f2p were maxxed by reading and you cant compete with paid players.

If that was the case, then publishers would have stepped in and taken out the only good features of the game.

How do you move through life? First person just mimics real life point of view.

Here is a link of the list of features.

http://www.mortalonline.com/features/

It's like a dream come true (almost)...  I just wish it was a AAA production.

It's pretty much the way a real; harsh; medieval; low fantasy life would be. It's a great role playing game amongst a crowd of fake RPGs out there that are not worthy to be called RPGs.

As far as bugs and stuff, I haven't really run into any. They do patch the game so I'm sure they try to work them out.

Here's a little bit of an intro video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhTuxJlJkfQ

If you give the game a good chance and learn it, it's pretty damn fun.

Mortal Online could have been and could be a LOT better than it is, but the game's mechanics really are a limiting factor in getting people to play. Yes, I'm talking about the PvP. Even if everything else about the game was "fixed", the PvP and the lack of any sort of structure in the PvP would be a huge disincentive to even start the game, much less keep playing.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

The opportunities for exploiting the PvP "flagging" mechanism to grief without having consequences are abysmally bad design too. The game is a total mess because of that.

By your own words you claim to have just started playing the game "a few days ago" but then are an expert on how they patch and eliminate bugs? 

 

Here is a hint, the game has been out for over 3 years since release.  Just take a look at the "PvP video" thread posted last week by a fan.  http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/396809/PvP-Video-19913.html

 

As you infer... MO COULD HAVE BEEN a great game.  Instead it just stands as a monument to unfulfilled potential and a warning to future developers (and fans) about trying to make an ambitious open world sandbox with an inexperienced team.  Luckily the industry as a whole is turning to more of a sandbox play style and real companies with experienced programmers are shifting to sandbox games.

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)
