Aug 8, 2012Am I a Mortal Online fanboy? Definitely not. But this game is simply breathtaking. I have never, and I do mean never, played a game with suchAm I a Mortal Online fanboy? Definitely not. But this game is simply breathtaking. I have never, and I do mean never, played a game with such beauty, MMOs and single player games included. The environmental effects are simply stunning, and the trees, sunlight effects, shadows, are second to none. Now, that that's out of the way. The game truly is intimidating, clunky and non-intuitive. After reading reviews around the web saying the same things over and over (broken game, paid alpha, etc), I decided to give it a try myself. And what I've discovered is that it's simply not easy. I think 90% of the reviews I read are, while earnest, are missing the point. If you are a casual or quick gamer, don't have alot of time to put into something and used to the arcade style games of current FPS or MMOs (or are under the age of let's say, 25ish), this game is DEFINITELY NOT for you, DO NOT EVEN TRY IT, and WALK AWAY NOW. That will save you time and trouble, frustration, and ultimately visits to forums spouting about how bad this game is. It's not bad, it's different. Yes, there are plenty of things that could be done better. The UI is pretty tough to navigate, buying and selling is difficult, there's almost nothing in the way of tutorials (but they do get the basics out of the way, there are help menus and trainer NPCs that have all the information you need to get you going). But anything more complicated than "how do I use my sword" or "how do I put things in a hotbar" are left unanswered. Crafting or recipe question? Visit the forums or ask in the help channel. Don't know where a certain vendor is? Get ready to spend a while looking for him! But to me, all this is simply amazing. It's VERY nostalgic for me, and reminiscent of very early internet gaming/mmos, while having the beefy environmental graphics/texturing that makes me not play the early ones anymore. I feel like my first time strapping into the original everquest after release, and being awestruck by what I see. "Let's see what's up this mountain....OMG, what's a 'Belbus'?" Followed by a hastily executed retreat as it eats my face. I feel like I'm viewing life through the eyes of a child in this game, and it's wonderful. It almost feels like I'm playing a form of art. So if you do NOT have patience to figure things out on your own without being told, again, it's not for you. I would write more, but I'm getting ready for work. The game has a new expansion called "Awakening" coming out soon (releasing as a free game update), that negates all of the cons I've spoken of so far as it is addressing many of these issues, from a wholly new and redone UI to advanced AI responses in npc creatures and characters.
One major complaint that I have heard is "griefers gank new players repeatedly, making them quit the game". I experienced this myself. But I didn't quit, I simply rounded up other players killed by this guy and took him out, then we were invited to a guild, and given weapons and armor to defend ourselves. The guy killing us, had none. He eventually left us alone. The game tries to force you to make tough decisions about social relationships. And I love it!
My only real negative, and the reason I really could not feel right giving this game a "10", is that the in game GMs in the help channel and the companies/dev's presence on the forums is a bit lacking. The community on the forums is still strong, but the developers seem to stay silent on everything except when they have an update or announcement, rather than answering individual players' questions. This is something I hope to see changed in the future, though I understand the development team stands somewhere around seven people. The in game help channel, the actual "helpers" seem to lack any real "helpfulness", but there are PLENTY of players in the same channel willing to answer any questions you have, making up for it.
In the end, it's up to you. but know what you're getting into before you play this game. It's tough. It can be lonely, frustrating and clunky at times, but YOU control what you become, who you interact with, and everything that goes on around you. I give this game a 9.

It's full sandbox experience (no epic quests, no purpose if you can't findThis game is the closest thing to Ultima Online I've found so far. It's full sandbox experience (no epic quests, no purpose if you can't find it for yourself), with full PvP and full loot, where you MUST interaction with other players (either the good and bad interactions- just like in a life- only more ruthless). Yes, there are a lot of griefers who like to kill every player they see, but there are also great people too.
If you were playing Ultima Online back then, or some other sandbox MMO and you miss that kind of experience- look no more. If you are a crying sissy who hate everything that isn't as casual as WoW, then don't touch it.
My real score would be 8/10. Yes, it's not perfect, but it's also doesn't deserve that all hate what kids are throwing on it- that's why I submitted 10/10.… Expand

It seems like an unfinished college kid's project, not a game that should be paid for, let alone have a subscription model - it's criminal. Frankly, the few hours I spent "playing" the game were enough of my life taken. Read the other reviews, I'm done with this pile.… Expand
Jul 28, 2014Notice how 90% of the positive ratings are from 2012, that's back before they ruined the game. Most of the good players left the game in 2012Notice how 90% of the positive ratings are from 2012, that's back before they ruined the game. Most of the good players left the game in 2012 because of updates and patches that are never delivered. Instead what you get is constant tweaking of PVP balancing which ALWAYS creates new imbalance. Sort magic out? Yeah, we'll sort it out AFTER the Territory Control patch. Guess what, they were talking about TC in 2012, it is now 2014 and they STILL HAVEN'T RELEASED IT. So they might release TC patch within the next two years, but how long will the game be broken after that? It would take them atleast a year to fix all of the issues they will create with the TC patch, so an estimate of when the new magic system will come out is roughly 4-5 years.
Also, they have a "private" testing team which consists of their favorite Mortal players, which is why the balance is always skewed, because they are catering to their favorites aka their "test" team. They then release a buggy patch that makes many people quit for a month or two until the problem is seemingly resolved.
Mortal is full of players who WANT to like it. That is why they quit and come back, not because this game is GOOD, but because it COULD HAVE been good. Darkfall completely revamped their game, and they have continuous updates now. Adventurine and StarVault have now switched sides, Adventurine is constantly updating and you hear nothing from StarVault. It used to be the other way around. The sad fact is that Mortal's combat system is so much better than Darkfalls, unless you prefer cartoony WoW-like nonsense like in DF.
Avoid this game for another 4-5 years, if it is still operational. Maybe by then they will have the territory control patch ingame, all the bugs ironed out, the new magic system with all bugs ironed out. I wouldn't hold my breath though.… Expand
