  • Summary: RF Online (Rising Force Online) is an epic mix of traditional fantasy MMOG mixed with unique futuristic sci-fi action to bring an entirely new and original take on the existing MMORPG genre. Set in a deep space galaxy known as Novus, take your pick from three all-powerful warring factions leading your character into the final battle for total control over the entire Novus galaxy. Choose from either the Bellato Union, taking control of individual robot battle units like never seen before within any MMOG, Holy Alliance Cora, the mystical and fantasy orientated race utilising the power of magic and finally the mighty Accretia Empire, a futuristic alien race intent on spreading destruction across the entire sector with their advanced weaponry systems.

  1. All jokes aside, RF Online is a stable and an entertaining game once you progress through the earlier portions of the game.
  2. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs with this game. One the one hand, the people playing RFO are awesome. On the other, the game itself is not so great. It lags, there are bugs, and its definitely not a game you can just pick up and play. I, however, am addicted.
  3. The graphics and audio do give a respectable performance that most will be satisfied with and RF Online does a great job setting up a game that has potential. The tedious nature of the gameplay however may leave the more casual fans of this genre out in the cold.
  4. In the end RF Online is one of those games that will be a hit or miss depending on whether or not you enjoy the theme, gameplay and game world that it offers (sci-fi with a touch of fantasy).
  5. It has good art assets, visual design, and sound. However, I cannot recommend this title to veteran MMO players or to those seeking to get into the genre.
  6. Oh, and whatever you do, don’t do the tutorial. It’s a punishment from God or some other cosmic being.
  7. Quests just involve killing a certain number of creatures. Nothing more. If that’s all you want, fine, but most folk are going to want more out of a game.
