Leaker rates darkfall....subjectively? 08/01/09

I want to remind everyone that nothing is set in stone at the moment. These only subjective ratings. Also he inst rating combat...he is rating combat sounds. At first glance i was mistaken to.

Regards and thanks
Faithy

Some subjective ratings and thoughts on the different aspects of Darkfall.

Environmental Sounds 8/10
Music 6/10 - because there is only one song that I have heard, but it is ok.
Melee Combat Sounds 3/10 - very limited and repetitive - perhaps temporary?
Archery Combat Sounds 6/10
Magic Combat Sounds 7/10
World Graphics 8/10 - Trees, grass, clouds, mountains, and so on.
World Design 10/10 - Best world design of any MMORPG - explored quite a bit.
Character Models 5/10
Animations 3/10 - Pretty much like EQ. The game runs fast though.
Monster Models 7/10 - Creative so I think it deservers higher than a 6, and there is a variety of monsters out there.
City Design & Graphics 8/10 - Varies .
Outdoor Static Camps 10/10 - Very well laid out and feels realistic, not repetitive. Makes exploring fun. The AI helps.
Monster AI 9/10

As for the stuff they are adding in it is still in process so there isn't much to talk about in that regard. Dungeons are in but they are being populated still, I think, maybe some are complete? Lots of outdoors areas to explore.

First Person works great. A good reason to use it in general is so you can run up and loot faster, or interact with NPCs faster.

Mate it's not Melee gameplay, look carefully its Melee Sound..

Matt said...

lol my bad, I missed that part... yeah I've read melee sounds where bad sucks they haven't improved.

Corey said...

who cares about SOUNDS at this point,t hats an easy patch later. Core systems seem functional and I am happy.

Ozan said...

Idd, thats what i also think actually. Gameplay has a majority in comparison to other stuff imo. As long as keep up that good work, it will be smooth ;)

Dominic said...

Thank you again

Im also getting worried now. They are still adding things? we have a little bit over 2 weeks untill release....

Nezabyte said...

They aren't adding things, it's that they're activating things that were previously disabled...though that isn't much better. They need to start testing server load soon to prepare for release.

Jonny said...

Cool! Hopefully they fix the sounds. Everything else looks great!

Jonny said...

Err, and the animations. Not so good there. :P But that's not really a big deal.

Dominic said...

sound and animations can be fix later....but bad game design is fatal...sounds like they are doing things right...just pray its all done in time

Lycanthrope said...

We all knew the animations were fairly bad. That at least can be tweaked later.

Matt said...

yeah sound and animation is really something that cane be improved later on, but people like to pick on every little detail when it comes to games.

I don't think it will be a big issue in the long run but short term it might lead to not as many people buying the game on launch day here in America is all. Or maybe by then it'll be fixed who knows? All I know is I'm excited for this game no matter what!

The Fuckin said...

Did any one else lol at the fact that there's only one song... haha at least its a good one : /

unseenzell said...

its possible they dont have all the songs enabled or something

francesco said...

ty Nezabyte :)

Lycanthrope said...

Thanks for the images! There's some good stuff there : ) Although I wish they would've been taken using the highest resolution. Lotsa jaggies.

Dambruk said...

I am looking for a beta account and would pay for it if anyone is willing to lend it to me (30 USD?).

I will not change any information in that account or behave wrong in any way, so that you can get it back after release. I'd just love to see how the beta is commencing. Answer me here in the comments section. Thank you!

Lycanthrope said...

Wow, a whole $30. That's awesome!

Dambruk said...

If I need to I will pay the full game for the person lending me a beta account when it is released.

Just answer me here if anyone is willing to. I will then tell you my contact details.

Corey said...

I bet you could sell a beta account for 500$ easy.

Matt said...

seriously I bet someone at this point would pay 500, lol.

Lycanthrope said...

Especially as its probably not coming out on time, so it will be a longer than expected beta methinks. Hopefully I'm wrong : )

Nathan Allen Pinard said...

Sounds aren't easy to fix actually. Melee sounds in particular are not available in a wide variety. You can make your own, but it takes some effort.

I'm more curious about the music. I was interested in this project, but was too late. I'm hoping the music delivers as a whole in both my main categories that I looked at (writing wise, and engineering wise)
