    Old School RuneScape is like a whole king-sized Las Vegas buffet. I’ve been playing for weeks now, and still feel like I’m barely even coming close to knowing what I’m doing, which has been really awesome as so few mobile titles seem to offer anything that even feels like any meaningful discovery or character advancement anymore.

    One of the best MMOs comes to mobile with most of its charm and playability intact.

    Despite some battery and bug issues, Old School Runescape's port makes it clear that the classic game belongs on mobile devices.

    You wouldn’t know to look at it though, its graphics looking hilariously ropey by today’s standards, but playing it reveals a game that is still in a class of its own. Without a central story or campaign to anchor you, once you’ve completed the grossly insufficient tutorial you’re left to do practically anything you like in a world that contains well over a decade’s worth of gameplay for newcomers.

    I hadnt played Runescape in over 6 months but since the release of Mobile it has gotten me back into both Mobile and PC (Which are Crossplay).I hadnt played Runescape in over 6 months but since the release of Mobile it has gotten me back into both Mobile and PC (Which are Crossplay). This is one of the few mobile games which dont offer a disadvantage against PC players. Amazing port, getting the full experience on the go. Would love to see future Nintendo Switch or PS4 ports in the future though. Haven't had this much fun playing a mobile game and its free without ads. 10/10 Amazing! Expand

This is how runescape has always been and you know what you are getting into. The competitive nature is all revolved around no-lifing and I believe it's not as big as it used to be, which is awesome. Iron-man is the best game mode to earn the excitement of achieving things in. Expand

    A fun reminder of how RuneScape used to be back when I first played; It's amazing to see just how much has changed (and wonder how we lived with the potato graphics).

    If you're new to RuneScape then definitely go with RS3, you'll have a much more enjoyable time.

    If you yearn to go back to how things used to be (or really enjoy tedium and hate Quality of Life updates) then this is the game for you.

The next day I got hacked because I apparently did not have a secure enough password. On may 9th I got perm banned because I got hacked. Do not play this game you will lose your money and time. Customer service is appalling Expand
