May I suggest a "revised" rating system for MMORPG.COM by adding a few more ratings:

1) Have a rating for PvE quality (rated by someone who actually likes PvE, which I believe is the majority of MMORPG.com staff).

2) Have a rating for PvP quality (rated by someone who actually likes PvP, which I believe is the minority of MMORPG.com staff).

3) Have a rating for innovation

4) Have an overall rating for game satisfaction/graphics/polish/etc. (similar to the rating you have now).

Personally, if a game was poor in PvE but fantastic in PvP, that would be great for me but terrible for others.  Furthermore, I suspect the rating for PvE and innovation could be done rather quickly, with the PvP rating and overall satisfaction rating coming on later on after more extensive gameplay.  Trying to write a review for the game with limited time in PvP and/or endgame content is just not realistic.  I know you try to get th reviews out quickly, but you sacrafice too much in quality to get it out quickly.

With almost all MMORPG review scores between 7.5-8.7, I guess this is one of the better games.  I still wish you guys would make a greater distinction between good games and bad games.  AION got an 8.7 upon initial review, then an 8.0 on re-review (which said the game had improved, laugh).  So, again I wish you had some type of formal numerical score. 

Aside from that, I wish we could here a bit more about the endgame.   It appears from the reviews that you don't want to go through the grind again of leveling, so hence most of the game is likely to be spent at endgame content, which is either raiding or PvP.  I'm personally more interested in PvP, and unfortunately it seems that Rift is destined to be an unbalanced game, which is unfortunate but predictable.  My guess is that after about 3-4 months, players will figure out which are the FOTM builds and that's about all you will see going forward.

Okay, I have a MAJOR pet peeve with your re-review.  You said in your introduction "By and large Aion of today is a much better game than it was at launch"

Note that your final re-review score is 8.0, whereas the initial review of the game was 8.7.   WTF? Either your current score is incorrect or the previous score was too generous.  I'm going to assume the previous score was way too generous.   

I'll tell you what the problem is....go and look at the review scores you give almost all MMOs on this website, they are mostly 7.5-8.5, with a rare MMO coming in lower than 7.5.  In essence, 8.0 would be "average" if scored on a curve.  I know I've posted on other threads about the poor scoring of MMO ratings, and I think you guys/gals need to re-think how you do ratings.  I mean, your first paragraph saying it's better than it was at launch and then giving it a lower score than you did at launch review pretty much summarizes the issues.  And please, don't tell me the standards are now different just one year later.  I will admit the difficulty in getting a "full" review done in an MMO in a relatively short period of time (and the need to move on to review the next big MMO), as end-game content tends to be very important for MMOs.  Still, as a paid professional, that's par for the course in the job.

On the other hand, I do applaud you going back and reviewing a somewhat popular MMO game.   I just wish the review scores had a greater variance so I could truly tell what MMO you like and what MMO you don't.  Right now with all the scores bunched together, it is hard to tell. 

Finally, I did play AION at launch and it was a good game, but the grindfest was unbelievable and like a lot of PvP end-games with just 2 factions (NPCs don't count, regardless of what NCSoft says) the losing side eventually quit and the server population dropped dramatically.   I have since sworn off MMO games with 2-faction PvP for end-game content.  Waiting on GW2 for 3-way server fights. 

Simple fact that 3-sided conflict insures that whenever one faction gets the upper hand, the other 2 can usually smack them down in time.  If you have 4-5 factions, it becomes nearly impossible for one faction to get the upper hand, so they don't even bother trying.  So, 3 seems to be the perfect number because any one faction usually can get their act together and dominate (for a time). 

It amazes me how many games have just moved to a 2-faction system and failed.  AION tried to include PvPvE (1 faction was NPC) and that didn't really work.  WAR was 2-faction and that stunk.

GW2 seems to be doing the right thing by doing the 3-server fights.  Keeps balance issues a bit in check as everyone has access to the same classes plus promotes server pride.  Hope it works.

This game is nothing more than the standard MMO with tank/healer/dps mechanic, except it has a star wars graphic overlay combined with a mandatory story line that you can't get away from.

Smuggler as the primary healer.  Laugh.  Sorry, that's just so funny I don't know what else to say.

A game review by a person employed by the developer of the game turned out to be a scam?  While perhaps a tad unethical, nothing shocking really.  What I get upset about more is "official" critical reviews that seem to be very biased or just ill informed. There have been too many positive reviews of recent MMOs in the past few years that failed (as defined by massive declines in population rather quickly).  

The issue a lot of people haven't talked about with this type of gameplay is the affect of lag in large-scale PvP battles.  How will this much movement work in a 30 versus 30 fight (a typical small zerg encounter)?  Will characters who depend on lots of movement be effective?   Hard to know right now, but that's one concern I have about a class like this.

If GW2 succeeds as an MMO (I hope it does), it will finally break the theory that all MMOs have to be similar to WoW to make money.  I then believe over the course of the next five years we can see new MMOs that simply don't re-hash WoW gameplay. 

Breaking the trinity of tank/healer/dps is almost too difficult for most MMO players to understand (myself included) how the game will be played.  Having servers fighting each other instead of factions (and fighting a 3-way battle similar to DAOC) is a great idea.  I hope we see more of this going forward.

I really hope this game delivers.  Otherwise we are doomed to WoW clones for the next 5-10 years. 

While I like the fact that the game play quests didn't feel like quests, I believe a lot of this was covered in videos from the game last year.   Still, a first hand experience is nice to hear. 

Sidekick
General Discussion « Guild Wars 2
3/15/11 7:36:34 PM

The Sidekick ability is (I believe) from City of Heroes, which as other posters have stated you just get your attributes (but not gear/skills/etc) buffed up to a level almost as high as your friend.  To get sidekicked up a level, you have to group with higher level people and actively be sidekicked by that higher level person.

Being debuffed going into a lower zone was done in WAR when it came to PvP (you turned into a chicken, ironically enough), but I don't recall a previous game doing this in PvE.  What is hard to believe is that the higher level (but not max level) player would do this because it may or may not take longer to level in this situation (getting 10 xp per kill versus 10,000 xp per kill), but perhaps it all scales nicely and thus it wouldn't really matter, which would be pretty amazing really.   Personally, I think this is just useful for max level characters to go back and group with friends who re-roll or something through their content without making that encounter too easy.

As for bots, I can't see how they would work in dynamic events (DE), which is probably where most of the xp/rewards are to be had in the PvE portion of the game.  The dynamic events are dynamic, not static, so having a computer run the character seems awfully unlikely.

Now wait a minute...

DCUO was a great game for the review period.  Think about it, it was just a launch so all the servers were pop full.  SOE promised a monthly content update.  SOE stated there would be bug fixes and whathaveyou.

The problem with a review is that they are given the content of a game within a limited scope and are told... here... review this for 2 wks... go!

For 2 weeks the game was incredible.  People were rushing to max level.  Raids were forming.  There were a couple of bugs but those were reported and RadarX responded they would be fixed.  The problem?  It wasn't until 2-4 wks AFTER the first review that the first patch came out.  And that patch didn't fix HALF of what it was supposed to.  The monthly update for V-day was off by almost 2 wks.  The first content update was a catwoman mission which, while cool in context, was not as bountiful as the comic faithful would have held.

While I sometimes agree/disagree with the reviews here, atleast they TRY.  They noted the discrepancies and if you go back and READ the review, there are a lot of IF's in their conclusion.  Once again, SOE kicked us gamers while they were down.

 Okay, first, you say "atleast they TRY."  Um, do you realize just how low a standard you have?  My 3 year old can try advanced calculus, but doesn't mean it is useful.   Anyway, I infer from your comments that the game has materially changed SINCE the MMOPRG staff wrote their review and impressions.  If that is the case, I believe MMORPG should be compelled to retract their original review and issue an ammended review.  This game is still relatively new and people looking to buy a game might believe the review a few weeks ago is accurate of the game.  I know the staff is always moving onto the next game, but leaving a review that is now inaccurate so quickly deserves some attention. 

Your comment also says that they used a lot of hedging language about their review, which also suggests that they need to come back and do a re-review quickly so that they can make some more definitive comments, or at least take the numerical rating down and issue a statement that the game is under re-review.

There is of course the other point:  MMORPG staff stands fully behind their initial review of DCUO.  While normally I would discount a review of an MMO if it was a year or two old (and thus there is no need to re-review every single game, that's too much to ask), I would expect a review of a major release game by a major developer (SOE)  done 1-2 months ago to be fairly accurate.  I'd like to know if MMORPG still would give this game a glowing review.  My standards I guess are a little higher than just hoping they "try."

P.S. -- Not trying to personally insult anyone at MMORPG, but my opnion of the review of this game was that it was reviewed like a console game and not as an MMO.  Probably easy to do as the console aspect of the game is innovative, but I do believe you missed the forest by focusing too much on one tree, as the saying goes.  I just want to point it out because I actually want to use the reviews of this site.  If I didn't care, I'd just simply go somewhere else and not even bother posting this.

I laughed when I read that the smuggler was the (healer) class. Not exactly the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Han Solo. This game is just a PvE MMO with a mandatory Star Wars story and Star Wars graphics. Perhaps that's all people want, but the moment a smuggler is the default healer, I just can't make believe it is Star Wars.
