Tabula Rasa is sending out some choice quotes from various reviews and I thought it would be fun to pick my own quotes from the same reviews.
Lets start with the quote they chose from a Gamespy review:
“The MMO genre just got a serious dose of adrenaline thanks to Richard Garriott’s reinvention of online combat.” – Gamespy
Here is a quote from the same review chosen by me:
“… complaints about a memory leak and slowdown from the community … gameplay bugs … quests that won’t give the player credit for completing them … triggers that only go off for only a few members in a party, forcing players to run missions multiple times.” – Gamespy
Next up we have UGO:
“A great launch, open and constant action as well as compelling story, Tabula Rasa lives up to the hype…” – UGO
Now it’s my turn, from the same review:
“… really not much different from any other MMO once you get started. You level rapidly in the early levels and are forced at level five to decide if you will be a soldier or specialist, effectively limiting your final class options to four for each choice.” – UGO
“Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa is fun to play, has stunning graphics and doesn’t take place in yet another tiresome fantasy fairyland.” – Gamedaily
“Some missions never tell you where to go to claim your reward, so it sits in your queue taking up space (only 20 missions can be taken at one time) until you accidentally stumble on the NPC who gave it to you, or you abandon it.” – Gamedaily
Finally Tentonhammer’s review:
“I’m desperately trying to gather the motivation to pull myself away from the game to give an accurate portrayal of my first impressions.” – Tentonhammer
Harder to find something negative in this one but I did:
“… people are complaining about server disconnects or extreme lag …” – Tentonhammer
Twisting reviews for my own amusement, what is more fun?
