well. I for one LOVE Shadowbane. BUT its not for everyone
Shadowbane is a pvp game, If you aren't hardcore pvp. don't play this game.
But if You love pvp (like me) youll find having 100's of players join up to destroy another nation to be unmatched fun. Shadowbane (endgame) is about Sieges. You join a guild, and fight to protect your hunting grounds, ect. The way most wars start is one evil guild starts killing everyone because they won't join them.
Another great thing about Shadowbane is the Fear factor. When you know there is a theif standing behind you, yet you cannot see him. Youll be freaked out! The theif can Steal your items/gold, Stab you in the back, or simply run away (unless your scout can uncover him).
Lastly like I said Shadowbane is for the Hardcore pvp fan. If your not one go back to eq/daoc. But if your a pvp nut, buy this game!

this game is fun for the first 2 months
but after awhile it's boring
there is nothing else to do only pvp and sometime you just stand around for hours waiting for something to happend
But, is the game just all about PVP or is it also about Adventuring?
Originally posted by Selek MurtBijani i've seen post after post from you.. about how much you hate this game. I can't figure out why you keep coming back here to read about it!!! and besides that. giving it a 1 is just stupid. no game deserves a 1. not even tibia (well, it gets a 2) You don't like to spend hours leveling up? hmm ok take any other mmorpg. most games all you can do is level level level. look at EQ, or daoc. Shadowbane isn't a bad game. but its not for everyone.-Selek
its not the leveling part, it was the whole interface, IT'S POINT AND CLICK FOR PETE'S SAKE
and i keep coming back to save some people the trouble of buying it

I have noticed a trend o SB reviews. Experienced players tend to like it, while inexperienced players do not. You have to READ the tutorial in order to have fun at the game. Ths is a good thing in my opinion. There are fewer imature brats playing the game. Despite what some reviewers have said, Shadowbanes interface is very good. It is very similiar to Diablo2.
I personally would like to nominate this game for the "WORST MMORPG EVER!" award. Unlike other mmorpgs I have tried I honestly couldnt find one thing about this one that was fun and it is riddled with bugs, horrid lag, poor interface (point and click movment...ugh), zero roleplay content, and poor graphics considering when it came out.
I am searching hard for something nice to say cause usually even bad games have a few nice features but I am pretty much at a lose fot this one. I guess the one thing that was pretty neat was the choices of race but they ruined that by having a ton of lore before the game was released that ended up not applying to the races at all once in game. They turned out bland and pointless other then minor stat differences.
Playing this game is like having a toothache.

Misty wants to vote Shadowbane as the worst? What is the best?
What about Rubies of Eventide? or Darkfire, or Blademistress, or Astonia3??? Those games are bad by my standards.
Honestly I do not uderstand the hostility. Did you go out and plunk down $120 bucks for a years worth of gameplay? Have you played other MMORPGS?
I have been slowly working my way through the list of fanatasy games on the MMORPG site. I would rank Shadowbane as number three on my list. EQ#1, DAoC#2, Shadowbane#3

You have a good point Derwood. I shouldnt have said worst mmorpg ever because I definately havent played even half of them out there to compare. I have played most of the major ones though and would say Shadowbane was by far the worst of those I have tried.
Whats the best mmorpg? Well thats tough to say because there are a number of good ones out there and then it just comes down to individual taste imo. The reason its easy for me to pick a worst (shadowbane), is that it is so riddled with bugs, poor graphics, horrible interface, painfully bad gameplay that it sticks out from the crowd.
My personal top picks are the same as yours Derwood, other then Shadowbane that is.
#5000 Shadowbane (I know there arent that many mmorpgs but leaving some room to make sure it stays at the bottom )
You also have to remember that all of these are from personal thoughts. . .
We all have different taste, your #1 is no where close on my top 2000 list.
Completly agree Djin! Not only does everyone have their own opinion but we are all looking for something different in these games. If someone really enjoys Shadowbane I think thats great and I am happy they have the option open to them to play it.
Its obvious from most reviews that its not a well liked game overall, but if there is a free demo the worst you can do by checking it out is waste some time.
Here is the sad thing. I thought I would download the 580MB DEMO lastnight and check out how it's been since BETA and the first two patches...
No biggy, only a hour to download 580MB ()... so I double-click the little .ZIP file... and it doesn't work... The same errors I've gotten before, and the same errors everyone is getting. That was minus points for UBI not fixing their DEMO after... what? Two months...
Agreed,djin,it down to personal taste.
I personally dislike shadowbane ,anarchy online(yes even in its current form),neocron,sims online,eve online,earth and beyond.
Only sci fi game i have a bit of liking for is SWG and honestly i will dump it once horizons comes out.
There is too much debate over this shadowbane issue though so i suggest trying the free trial and see for yourself.
I agree somewhat with Hercules,
When Horizons, or Dark n Light, or WoW, or EQ2 comes out I will be willing to pay 12-15 bucks a month.
I rank Shadowbane very highly because it has true 3D graphics, a diverse combat system, and you can level fast. The game list on this site is miles long but most are half harted attempts of making a MMORPG and they are runnning a server in a garage.
Shadowbane is on my short list of Fantasy MMORPGs. Ranked in order they are: EQ, DAoC, Shadowbane and Rubies of Eventide. I have not tried AC or AC2 so they are not on the list. If you think those games are bad try some of these for compairison: Blademistress, Legend of Mir, or Darkfire.
