Fallen Earth and Darkfall SUCK! Deal with it.

Just to get you all caught up MMORPG.com posted a review of Fallen Earth (can’t find a cache of it) and then the FE fans nerd raged and now they retracted.  This reminds me of the time that Darkfall was given a bad review and they nerd raged over that for a week or so.

Darkfall and Fallen Earth are SHIT games. They are made for a niche player base and lack the polish and looks of the more mainstream games. I have played them both and it took a tremendous amount of effort not to just log out of Darkfall. That game is almost unplayable. Fallen Earth is 100 times better than Darkfall but it is still full of bugs and lacks polish or direction.

I am glad that some people like these games but to expect a good review when games like Aion, WoW, and WAR exist is just; just….. stupid.  Can’t you step back  and look at the game without your emotion. If you are just there to rate this game and compare it with what else is out there these games don’t stand a chance. They are complete crap and if they were not MMOs they would be in the clearance rack a week after release if they managed to get released.

I understand a lot of you are looking for something different and these games offer that if you can get past the bugs, shitty performance, unbearable graphics, and immature community, you can get a real gaming experience out of it. But it will not get a good review score from a independent review, especially if that reviewer has played ANY other MMO.

You will be a lot happier if you can see the flaws in your game and recognize that your game does not appeal to everyone.

  1. Haha well said I waited for years for darkfall and have given up on fallen earth, Now that Aion is out I have no need to play these two games

    I’m glad that some people like WoW, WAR, and Aion, but to expect a constant sheen of praise when non-DIKU MMOs attempt new playstyles is just stupid. Can’t you step back and look at these games without your emotions making you defensive of the mainstream titles you enjoy? If you just want to rate new MMOs and compare them with the mainstream “polished” titles, then you’re clearly missing the niche attraction, not just of the worlds they take place in, but the non-DIKU playstyle behind them. And you’re also forever damning non-DIKU titles from ever growing beyond the niche, into something more polished in the future.

    I’d give Fallen Earth a much better score than WAR or Aion. As for Darkfall I cant comment as I havent played it but it does look like an interesting game.

    Funny also that while both WAR and Aion are leaking subs both indie titles are growing slowly but surely. In my opinion Fallen Earth and Darkfall are the two success stories of MMOs released this year and if it means we get other devs following their blue prints of growth and stability then I’m all for it.

    I play WoW as well as Fallen Earth btw and yes WoW is far more polished but Fallen Earth is a much more involving game.

  4. Something I’d just like to point out here, 6 months on from FE’s release…

    You’re comparing a recently released title, by a small company, to a game developed by one of the leading games developers in the world, which has been around for 5 years (WoW) and a game with a very large production budget that suffered MASSIVE problems upon release (Aion)…

    6 months on from it’s Initial release, I’ve picked up Fallen Earth a second time (had a trial account shortly after release) after becoming incredibly disenchanted and frustrated with WoW’s ‘dumbing down’ and the GOGOGO! mentality of it’s increasinly immature player base…

    You want something simple with hardly a learning curve (if anything, the curve is increasingly smaller), that you can level to max level in a matter of weeks (if not days) and be geared up for end-game content in potentially hours (Heroic grinding at <15mins a pop to buy badge gear), play WoW in all it's 5 years of refinement… WoW was FAR from as polished as it is now when it was first released (had consistent and constant problems for months which people/fan boys seem to forget), it has also undergone repeated graphics enhancement along the way…

    Can't judge Aion's gameplay as I have not played it, and have no intention as everything I have read and heard suggests it's entirely PVP focused once you get past the initial starting areas, though it looks very pretty…

    From what I saw of FE upon it's initial release (on a trial account) and what I've seen now… Icarus have made spectacular amendments and improvements to FE…

    The graphics may not be as good as Aion (neither are WoW's for that matter) and it may not be as simple and the 'zerg-fest' steam rolling everything in sight like WoW, but FE is all about the game-play, the game lore and the whole world in which it takes place…

    The intracasies and learning curve that FE has I feel are two of the games' best features, it appeals to a more mature (if not older) audience, and so far I have not heard one person talk about being sent to bed by mum or dad or needing to do homework… Children, husbands/wives and bad days at work are another matter… This is yet another appealing factor to anyone, like myself, who have become jaded with the growing levels of idiocy within the major MMO titles…

    Before people quickly declare FE to be a piece of shit because it's not as pretty as Aion, or as 'refined' as veteran MMO, WoW, perhaps you should actually take the time to understand the game your vilifying as it's depth and detail are what make it a great, and ever improving MMO, that is very likely to take some shine out of the big titles…

    Given that most of the biggest MMO releases that have seen over the top fanfare usually end up in the bargain bin (Conan given away free in Australia with a magazine even) with plummeting subscribers within about 6-8 months of release, Fallen Earth's still growing player base must show that Icarus have done something right and FE is indeed an MMO of considerably substance that's unlikely to dissapear into obscurity…

    Unlike so many other bigger titles by major publishers…
