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
There is one big problem with the combat system. Its 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
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.
