I personelly love the concept of the game, I hate alot of the artist work on some of the races, like the orcs, Dwarves, Elves, and the others... but otherwise the graphics arent bad. I understand the need to dumb down some of the graphics in favor of performance. This is WHY games like WWIIOL and Roma Victor do it. Cant have a HUGE graphic based game on current bandwidth and computer processing power.
I will probly give this game a chance. Seeing as I like Roma Victor, not for its graphics but because of the scale of the game. I also like the fact that DF is taking a note from games like RV, and WWIIOL, with the huge persistant world. Where you can be killed by anyone anyplace, anytime. At first its going to be a giant frag fest. After a few months and the kids get board and their free trials run out, some players will orginize and form factions, guilds, and clans. Then the game will REALLY take shape. But that will take alot of work and time. Which will most likely drive off alot of players. I also see "gold farmers" becoming a fact of life in that game. Worse than WoW, or UO. Seeing as this game will basicly be a big new Ultima Online, with a twitch style combat.
I for one am looking foward to the game. I will see about trying to get it and trying it out. But until then I wont say it will be a WoW beater or a WAR beater... cause those are a total different type of play style.
Now all we need is a modern or futuristic game like this.
So much crap, so little quality.
