I remember first time I had played Asheron's Call 2 and the graphics were amazing, out of this world. Now years on, it does look relatively dated. :D

Yes they are, but the world overall still looks nice to me at least. I hvae been playing about a week now and the lack of a decent UI bothers me more than  dated graphics.

The thing i find most fun is the neat races and skills, combat could use some minor tweaks and a few more npc running around would help the world look more alive.

If they put some work into the game it could be a really nice game. if not well it will die a second death rather quickly.

Well.... it is many years old so the graphics are going to look like Crysis.

 

I would say they're at least on par, if not a little bit better, than a lot of the long running MMOs (including WoW, but I never really was a fan of the WoW art style).

well for a game of its age its still not that bad.. some of the world textures still look half decent and better than some of the shitty asian games that have recently released...

Once I saw Ripper's First Impressions, saw the all so familiar worm hole and heard "quest advanced" I was drawn in again.  I spent $10.00 just to see Dereth again.  But sadly I remmebered why I stopped playing too:  the rather desolute world of hills and valleys linked to "towns" with only wood towers by cobble stones paths that all look about the same.

AC2 at one time many years ago intrigued me.  But its mostly bland world that looks like it came from pioneer ages gets old quickly.

I actually still like MMORPGs

I'll never get over how desolate the "towns" and world is. I like NPCs in my MMO I want it to feel alive. I do get what they were going for, but unless you had a massive roleplaying community with tons of sandbox elements it would never work.

The "Real Game" begins at character creation.

Dated yes... but AC2's Dereth still has a certain charm to it that I've not gotten in many other games.

My philosophy on MMORPGs:

Leveling is what happens while you're playing the rest of the game.

Don't worry about levels. Just play.
