Comments on: Runescape /2008/03/15/runescape/ Spotlight's Game Reviews Thu, 16 Oct 2008 15:42:10 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.6.2 By: Rodrigo /2008/03/15/runescape/#comment-1429 Rodrigo Wed, 01 Oct 2008 13:14:06 +0000 /2008/03/15/runescape/#comment-1429 Runescape is pretty cool. I've been playing it for like 2 years now and if your a member its still a lot of fun. There's a lot you can do and you never get bored. With the aspect of it...ehhh. Some people may get offended but I don't, and I'm Christian. Sure there's witches, demons and other things, but its not that bad. Most people who say $60 a year for being a runescape member is way to much, but they probably aren't even a member. If you really understand the "story" of this game then its really fun. Also people who say, There's bad language in the game and can bypass the filters, its not true. You would have to put a lot of weird symbols and stuff just to get a curse word in there. Also there's no more spammers and stuff like that. Also there's not just simple little fighting and that's it you can train your character with mage, range even summoning. For those of you who don't know what summoning is, it's a member only skill where you can have pets or even have a animal/beast partner when you fight. If you get the hang of it, its amazing. The PvP aspect of the game could be better but if you wanted you face your friend in a house or a dungeon if wanted. You could go to Castle Wars, Clan Wars, Bounty Hunter, Duel Arena...the list of minigames you could play is amazing. If you still think that Guild Wars or the extremely costly World of Warcraft is better than go ahead and play those. I think that if you don't wanna spend money on a game you could play runescape as a member and still have fun(but there does come a point where you have done virtually everything). Or you could spend 5 measly dollars a month to have lots of fun and spend more than a year playing and still have not done everything!! Thanks for Reading. :) Runescape is pretty cool.

Also i hate it that RS players always compare it to WoW. WoW is ALOT better than RS, the graphics, gameplay, stories, and characters, skills and such..and these kind of games cant just be given for free or $5 per month. Recently there have been loads of MMORPG's which are FREE and they totally smack RS. Like : Shaiya, Rohan, Last Chaos, and such..(these are they only ones i have tried, but there are loads more out there). I think that RS players should try these games FIRST and then comment on superiority of RS. Also RS boasts other skills than fighting which was a plus point but other games are creating these skills as well and most already have them by now. RS also doesnt have parties ( not Drop Party, lol)..and the entire game is Solo which really stupid and makes the game soo boring after a few levels. The Armour in RS is Very monotonous and the stats are the same for all armours of the level ( depending only upon the method of fight : Range, Melee, Magic ) RS doesnt have PvP outside a small area(: BOunty Hunter)...players cannot even fight one on one on open ground if they want to. So basically without PvP, Parties, bad Graphics ( compared to other free MMO's), bad Gameplay, bad fighting skills. and loads other reasons explained,.. Runsecape is not a good game. Thankyou I dont think Runescape is an awsome game at all..

The graphics update is awsome! makeing the game much more enjoyable. The magic is optional and pretty unrealistic. The violence is very mild considering the largeness of the game. Another great feature is that you dont have to download RS... other MMORPG'S have to be downloaded, but not RS. 5 bucks a month is worth it to me, thats like what a cheeseburger a month?? cut out the cheeseburger and theres your membership. lol. the game is addicting but fortunately i have a life so i havent got really addicted, ive played for 3 years. Al the way over a great clean game! About the bots; Jagex has taken care of them and they no longer exist. The graphics update is awsome! makeing the game much more enjoyable.

However, it does have some witchcraft in it but its all fake and not to mention fun. And also, you should not become a member let alone play just because of the fullscreen gameplay because I have tried it and unless u wanna be running from a revenant and lag out and lose all your stuff I would stick to the version with minor updates.

And btw, the chat filters these days will stop almost everything, even words relating to swear words. and about witchcraft in this game,im a christan and i dont take it too seriouly because its just a game. Remember ITS JUST A GAME. finally i think being a rs member is worth every penny, theres more things,quests,funnier mini games etc. overall rs is a very fun game but 1 thing.....this game is addictive so try to take breaks inbetween =) ----Darkice (aka ice) I think Runescape is an awsome game. it helps people set goals and its a fun game. recently rs has had an update and now goes fullscreen and much better graphics.

All those things don't exactly fit into Philippians 4:8. As Christians, we ought to consider it our duty to stay away from things like that.

Besides, you can play for free and theres endless things to do in free world. As for religion, it's just a game. I defitnetly recommend this game. =) I really like this game, i think it’s worth the $5 a month, wich is really not much to pay if u think about it.

Can someone verify this for me? I've played the game and don't see anything like this. check out the article at ccgr.com, search runescape.

I love Runescape!!!!
