Runescape 2 FULL

Lets take RS1. Bland graphics,hard to get into gameplay, with greatness once you got to lvl 40. Now lets polish that up and add some kick ass features (I.E. Hookers in seers village)

Then add the fact that they have re vamped all of the Skills making it easier to lvl up. Added new armor types and the awsome new Dragon Spear,Mace,And full shield. And you get one kick ass game.

There are a few flaws to this-
1-The world is now much larger,making it now takes 30 mintutes to walk from varrock to adrouge (west) Thats way to long
2-WTF!!!NO FAIR!!! There are TIDES NOW!!! Which means FISH DRIFT OFF THE THE MIDDLE OF THE SEA,MAKING IT FIRGGEN IMPOSSIBLE TO FISH THEM
3-The graphics are still under-par
4-The emotes are retarted (dancing consists of moving your legs and feet like your haning a seisure)
5-The value of certs have gone down due to bank notes,which crashes to ecomony,weakens the dollar,and in about a year,runescapes economy will crash.

But over all, its very good, an large improvment over RS1, this game is truly a great game.

NOTE:Runescape haters,Please give this a chance. Play until you get to level 15,then you will see. And members worlds are amazing.

Shadow Lights

Well, this is the first review i’m writing. i decided to do this because i know the guy that made this, so it might kind of non professional.

Graphics: The game is text based so no real graphics, but dacauz (the creator of the game) has some cool little gifs on it, and i’ve heard that a map might be added. graphics= 1/10

Gameplay: Surprisingly fun for a text based game. It incudes chat, towns, battlefields and more. Gameplay= 8/10

Community: The community is nice, and very newbie friendly. The game however, used to be filled with hackers, but they have died down. Comminty= 7/10

Sound: There is no sound on this game, other than the clicking of the mouse. Sound= 0/10

Overall: A great fun game. Good for just sitting down and playing for a few minutes, or staring at your computer for hours until your brain rots. Overall= 9/10

Runescape II Beta

This is only for the beta…
I haven’t played the beta 100%, but it was hella-fun!

Graphics – 4/5
Whoa, big change, WAAY better graphics, and trust me, way better

Gameplay – 3/5
Still had it’s highs lows, not much of a change here!

Plot – 2/5
Ok, it’s an MMORPG, so what’d you expect?

Players – 4/5
Lots of poeple playing, and lots of kind poeple, and now, poeple are making guilds and clans!

Menu – 3/5
It was better than the old one, but gets a little confusing, and bulky

Changes – 4/5
Lots of good changes, I’d say great changes, but the battlesystem, they didn’t make it any faster!

Total – 20/30

AdventureQuest

Hello, Haven’t posted a review in awhile, so here’s one, I know theirs already a review for AdventureQuest, but oh well. You will also need latest flash installed to play.

Sound: No sound, it’s being worked on so. I have heard some of it, you will have to look for it, it was ok. Although it probably as changed a lot. Can’t really score this one

Graphics: Late last year, it got a graphics upgrade and now theirs animation (things move). And judging that it’s made with flash and is played on your browser, the graphics are great.7/10

Community: Since this is a single player game, you won’t find anyone while you play except npcs. Although when you go to chat or the message board, the community is great. Most of the people on the message board are friendly and helpful and the staff are great also. Although some people don’t like people asking questions on the message board and make fun of people spelling (Which is weird) but overall, the people are nice. (Sadly chat doesn’t work for me). 6/10

Quests/Events: One thing I really like, are all the quests you can do. (Although to travel to other places for other quests, you need to donate a one time fee of 12 dollars to get to them). The newer quests feature a walk around quest, the quest reward is pretty good, three to get in the quest. My favorite thing is, occasionally they do a war which is available for everyone and if its Christmas or Halloween they change the layout of the town to fit the setting of it. 9/10

Pets The pets are great and have a nice variety. Sometime they well let pets level up. Which would be alot of fun. Plenty of variety. 6/10

Monsters: Tons of monsters to fight, most look really cool too, although, you tend to find the same monster again alot. Another problem is, their Exp/Gold reward are not balanced. For example, an emerald golem is weaker then a ruby golem, EG gives better rewards. RG gives worst rewards. And others need to be worked on also. 4/10

Overall: The game is great and addicting. It gets updated often and most…of the players are great. The creator(s) even gets on and talks to people on the message board or chat. Theirs plenty of quests to do (especially if you pay a one time fee of 12 dollars, but it’s worth it) and the events are great. 7/10

Runescape 2

Ok way back a company named Jagex released a game called Runescape. After about 4 years of satisfying their players, the players saw how most commercial MMORPGs were full 3d and Runescape was not. So around 2001 Jagex goes into development of making Runescape 3d. So then around 2002 Jagex decides to make the new Runescape a entirely different game. Which leads us to this, on December 1st Jagex released Runescape 2 (AKA Runescape 3d)
Ok for die-hard Runescape players as soon as Jagex started pumping out screenshots of the new engine around 2002 we all got excited. The new environment was uncharacteristically good. The new NPCs in 3d looked awesome. And the new features rocked. So lets just go ahead and look at the new features of Runescape 2.
Ok lets face it, Jagex uses java to make their games. If anyone knows anything about java they know that 3d environments in a java client are a new thing. So Jagex made new graphics. And all I can say is… wow. These graphics are basic, but extremely detailed. Runescape 2 is a fully 3d environment! I score the graphics a 4/5

The new sound effects Jagex used in Runescape 2 is pretty good. Nothing special though. The music they use is sort of good, I mean come on there MIDIs how good can they get? I score the sounds a 4/5

Combat System
There is one big problem with the combat system. It’s too slow! If Jagex can fix it that wow I would be so happy! I score the combat system a 3/5

These are a few things Runescape 2 has. A PK system, Lots of skills, A huge community, a great staff, lots of updates, and lots of fun things like guilds and mini games. I score the features of Runescape 2 a 5/5

Final Note
This game is great, and I cannot wait in till it is in a final release! So over all I give Runescape 2 a 9/10 this is a must play game.
