    Default Darkfall: My First Impressions

    Hey guys, wanted to put up a link to my initial impressions of Darkfall. I intend to do a much larger review at the end of my trial period, and possibly again in 6mos if it sticks.

    I encourage any feedback you guys might have, as I've only started, I've not but scratched the surface of what looks to be a fantastic game.

    I encourage anyone debating whether to try it out or not give it a read. If you have any useful links or information for new players, please include them in the comments.

    A good read indeed. In particular, the "sliding corpses" thing is going to be replaced, quite possibly with ragdolls.
    Avatars are overrated.

    Very good read. I pretty much feel the same way.

    nice to see ZigZag and Fang in one of your screenshots Also i think as a new player you made one thing really good you joined a guild and i think for example the GUI was not so much of a problem for you as a complete new player without help

    Playing Darkfall is the most fun I've ever had on a computer with my pants zipped up and both hands on the desk.

    I did join a clan, they've helped me with items and information.

    The GUI was a little unfamiliar at first, but I didn't fight it for more than a few minutes. The first-person perspective did wonders for my immersion.

    Nice read. You'll definitely enjoy exploring the world, they had over 7 years to design it and it has been supurbly crafted, very well done.

    The only downside is that some amazing locations are missing in content. You can find the coolest location that is disappointingly empty, or a huge monster city with maybe 1 crummy spawn in the middle, clearly there was more in mind when they were conceived. There is a big PvE/graphic expansion in a few weeks and another at the end of the year that is supposed to redress these issues tho.

    ...flocks of birds fly gently overhead...
    I have never seen a bird in Darkfall. Where have you seen this?

    Arrow

    They are a bit like the fishes you can see swimming in the water at times... but rarer.

    Merely Graphic details, nothing one can shoot at and hit or anything.

    And also quite bugged, last time I was playing.

    Nice writeup.

    The world of Agon is pretty incredible due to it's lack of zones defined by impassable borders. I'm playing the game since release and I still discover new things I haven't seen before.

    I think it's safe to say most player can relate to this review almost 100%. I feel exactly the same way when i first played, although, i was slightly more irritated than you seemed to be about the downsides -.-. But the thing about darkfall, is that even though it may not be polished, the cool mechanics it does have are very rare in mmo's now a days.

    Great review, it deserves a sticky .

    A quick update: I've posted a brief Day 3 cap on what I've been up to.

    http://www.mmo-blog.com/2010/darkfall-day-3/

    That's probably it for now, at least until the trial ends at which point I'll do an in-depth review of everything to that point.
