If you are looking at your first foray in to the world of MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) or simply wishing to add a new virtual world to your repertoire, then Runescape will offer a treat for you.
Set in the magical world of Gielinor this globally popular online community game will see you battle it out with millions of other players throughout mythical towns, cities and oceans. Its setting has a medieval feel and caters for all sorts of skill and play, rather than being based purely on combat as many games of its type are. It’s free to download and as it runs on Java software there is no need to download specific software. It’s free to use at a basic level although you do get access to more skills, areas and quests when you upgrade to a paid membership; monthly fees are relatively cheap.
The 3D graphics are in the main satisfactory and with over 100 quests and new content, quests and challenges being adding regularly there’s always something new and fresh to keep you hooked. Gaining new levels of skill however can be quite repetitive as you need to do the same thing over and over in order to progress.
The online community is vibrant and friendly and is monitored by moderators to ensure a pleasant experience is enjoyed by all. If you are beyond your teens you may find it a little youthful, as it’s this age category where Runescape sees the most success.
Overall Runescape offers a great online gaming experience, if heed is to be taken it’s to keep an eye on the vast number of hours that it could easily consume!
