5.0 out of 5 starsI would not suggest this game. You will stop ...
April 21, 2016
I would not suggest this game. You will stop living your life. I have already lost my wife and children. I no longer shower on a daily basis, now its whenever I need to log out to do daily reset. All i see is exp gains and I am slowly dying.
Just don't do it. You know the keys are a scam. They'll sell you the level 99s sure, but then they'll just raise the cap to 120, then in a few years: 200. Don't do it. Buy something nice for a friend instead, invest in relationships not this stupid game.
RuneScape is a very fun, and addicting MMORPG. It has grown a lot over the years. Everyone is "maxed" out nowadays, including myself. So the content has changed to fit the demographic of higher level players. That doesn't mean there isn't a huge amount of content for people of any level. There is tons to do. It has grown a lot less click intensive for most things in the game except bossing. Bossing has grown to be more skill based.
If you haven't played in a while, give it another try. NXT is really beautiful. Elf city is really cool, new monsters, new places, new methods, new bosses. It's turned into a game to play when you're doing other things. You can meet people in the game. I know I've made some lifelong friends from playing so long. Just make sure not to neglect your family, friends, or real life obligations. It's very easy to get sucked in. If you don't mind afking a lot then this game is great. This is one of the few games you can play while watching TV/Netflix, doing homework, playing another game, and still make progress. That's what's so great about it. I buy the VIP membership packages currently every year, but these cards used to be really nice to buy for me when I had no other way to buy membership on the game.
After purchasing the 90 day membership, I could not activate the membership to my account, even though I had linked it through the Amazon website... purely because my computer is an Apple. I had to use another computer running Windows 10 in order to add the membership. I did not see anywhere that Windows was necessary for activation... thus why it is only receiving 4 stars. I was able to use my digital rewards with this, which was nice... this is why it's getting four stars even after the frustration of trying to figure out why my "instant access" was nothing like "instant"
Membership is getting a little pricey these days, and I feel like they have made some bad updates lately, but overall Old School Runescape is still the best MMO around. Don't play Runescape 3, it's trash.
Previously I had gotten scammed by someone claiming to "Sell membership cards". Was I stupid, but the next day i went out and bought this from amazon. It's very quick, and takes less than 5 minutes. The pros of membership are endless for this game. The money comes easier, and the content is well worth the money. The world map expands at least 3 times the f2p(free to play) map, the amount of items obtainable are countless, and there are more skills that can be trained. Membership is well worth the money, highly recommended.
UPDATE: Hahaha. I'll leave that above review from my noob days intact. I can't believe I fell for that. Much has happened since the initial review. I have switched from RS3 to OSRS. It seems like more people play that now as it is, and I for one like it better.The whole community outside of the game seems dead in RS3, but in OSRS you have a vibrant YouTube and Reddit Community which I just don't see elsewhere. However, even OSRS has imperfections. DeadMan mode was an absolute disaster, as I predicted it would be. Zeah was lackluster, but hopefully future updates will be better. Other than that, the game has the same charm as it always had, and I will continue to play for as long as it exists. This game was an essential part of my childhood and I still find enjoyment even as I grow older. This Amazon card is a great convenience to me as I prefer to pay with gift cards. Even if you don't want to be members yet, there is a lively F2P pk scene which I'm sure all sorts of players will enjoy due to it's simplicity. It's worth the price every time. Happy 15 years to RuneScape, and here's to another 15. Cheers!
