The interview starts with "I'm a huge fan of this game."

I'm not sure why you didn't expect bias going into it.

As to my own thoughts -- I think this game is alright, and has potential. Unfortunately, it could have done with another three to six months of polish. Judging from developer interaction on the forum the team might manage to make this a great game after a while.

You might as well start playing now and establish early. Not like there are any alternatives.

I pre-ordered this game way back in December, I was some what excited about the idea of the game having never played Darkfall. Needless to say over the months my excitement has left me completely as I learned how AV works and the state of this game. I'm not saying others won't enjoy it but be careful, the company behind this is not one I would support and the game seems to be bare bones at best.

Why would you put up a review when it's out of date?

New Prowess System, new Wobble coming in, Primalists in now..

You should have just made a new video, don't be lazy.

omg cant believe they could even think of making a game like this in 2012-2013..

Could look like a game from 2008 or even older..

ubermut writes: stuff like races they are changing, its basically going into open beta with no wipes soon, so don't expect much more than that.  That said, the devs have finally started communicating daily and seem very determined to make any necessary changes to make this a great game.  Loved the old DF and can't wait to see what happens with this one.  It's worth the price of admission at least to play a decent FPS full loot MMORPG with politics and what not.  even if its gonna take another year til its more fully realized.

This game is the only current thing like it out there in MMORPG land.

It is the only game I've experienced a real sense of gut-wrenching anticipation of a fight about to happen, a siege taking place, a kill to get off or the temporary 'pain' of being killed, regearing and getting back out into the battlefield.

The world is truly vast, and is seamless.  It will thrive well as a game if the people turn up at launch (and the devs manage the launch well).

I, for one, heartily recommend this game to anyone out there who is bored rigid of the cookie-cutter, kill X mobs, no risk MMORPGS that are depressingly the norm.

Notice that "it´s" made before they added the Salvage skill...

Much has changed since this impression was made. AV are remaking the starter experience in a new patch wich should be tomorrow.

Ripper said multiple times in the video "THIS IS THE BETA, things are subject to change." The game is a work in progress and this video was really mainly for new players to get a first look at the beginning stages of the video a.k.a. a First Impressions, and the Prowess system was still implemented just not patched to where it was the main mechanic for leveling your character. It's a big change sure, but not big enough to where players wont know how to play the game or what to do when leveling. I'm sure the tutorial will explain it more in depth for anyone interested.

That's rather old footage, from before the Prowess Progression system, Primalist class, Salvaging skill, map fog of war, ect.

 

Otherwise, decent first-look video.

Haven't played since I made the mistake of pre-ordering and got into the massively unstable beggining of beta.  I couldn't get past the terrible 'artwork' that looks like something I could come up with in MS Paint, the horrendously rough animation, completely disconnected feeling of combat, and the horrifically clunky UI.

Maybe if you can get past all that there's something there worth playing...

No other current MMO provides "flow" like this one.

Blindchance writes: So now all races look like humans with different face make-up ? Lawl. Animations and graphics are still poor. Blocking animation made me laugh. It doesn't matter really, the mountain of bugs and issues would put me off first, together with with lack of any meaningful game content. Again it's a poor MMO take on Quake with a huge map. Frame rate will still suck in huge battles and the combat system is even more shallow. Fri Apr 05 2013 4:40PM Report
Murphyleo writes: If you didnt play Darkfall 1 , and if you dont LIKE and i mean REALLY LIKE PvP .....then move along , i loved the first game , will probably love the 2nd but the last thing anyone who plays Darkfall wants is a bunch of WoW / GW2 type players to come thinking they can find a new home and after losing everything they have a few times coming to mmorpg.com  and trashing the game , not trying to be rude just saying, also if you are one of these ppl that want prompt updates on the exact day they originally post ......dont bother , AV is known for keeping thier own schedule but that never bothered me Fri Apr 05 2013 5:40PM Report

I tried the game, and loving it. In a sandbox way, although I kinda hated the combat system but it's alright, its not the best.

Just the idea you get to craft a bloody ship, and castles. Now that is appealing to me, just like Vanguard saga of heroes.

The game it self needs some issues to fix tho, mainly the freaking lag spikes, then again it's still in beta.

Looking at these comments, it's either HATE or LOVE. Quite bipolar. Sounds good, open world, free-aim sandbox. Cool. But ye gods the graphics and animation look shite. Seems always it's either good game or good graphics, never both at the same time.

Maybe I'll go back into stasis for another couple of years.
