Has anyone here played this? Is it any good?

@TheMustacheHero

Only played it around launch and some time after that and it left a lot to be desired back then. This first "expansion" contains features that they left out at launch it seems.

Maybe there has been significant improvements, but some caution might be good also.

Added friend and ignore lists? Wow. I had heard things were missing, but... Well. Congratulations on entering into paid beta stage Earthrise!

@Transientmind

I guess the fact they're heralding such basic features says it all.

I guess they may even allow you to remap your controls by now! :O

Or maybe that's waiting in another expansion.

My thoughts exactly. No wonder this game was such a massive flop.

It's like a kind of drug haze... every so often the word 'Earthrise' floats through my conciousness and I try to remember to check it out, but it keeps slipping away again. Hey Dr. Massively, can we... investigate this Earthrise thing? It's Masthead after all!

The price reduction was necessary. Putting down $60 to even download the game in the first place, in its launch state, was a crime.

I watched this game forever...then there was no news..then there was release. Scared me enough to avoid it and heard of nightmares of performance issues. Reading some of the forums seem to indicate they have made strides there and I may have to give it a try.

I tried this game 2 months ago and it was downright horrible. Masthead should have waited another couple years to release this game. Environments were nice thugh.

This is one of those games I regret purchasing. Up there with MO and Xsyon. I refuse to install it back onto my computer, no matter what the patch changed. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Not doing it.

I couldn't get it to work on my computer, crashed constantly. Character creation seemed cool though. =p

@Plastic Frankly don't feel bad, I doubt it was your computer. This is unfortunately another of the oh-so-typical launch of a beta product. I'm amazed it hasn't been forced either to shut down or go "freemium" yet, but I'm sure it will.

It's still a horribly mediocre offering, that combat engine / ui mechanic is TERRIBLE!

i was one of the fools who bought it day 1 and stuck with it thinking it would get better til may.......it never did..these guys are terrible developers.so many basic mmo features are just making it in...for the first 2 months there was no auto stacking in your inventory..you had to hand stack every single thing you picked up....not to meantion it took 3(almost 4) months for them to put actually fix there pvp combat...yea these brilliant devs had a feature that automatically removed your character from being online if you alt f4ed out....so guess what????if you came up on someone in the wild and they were losing the fight...THEY alt f4ed to save there loot.that alone ran most the player base off...along with broken promises and terrible road map times.STAY FAR AWAY from this shit stain.wait for planet side or darkfall 2.0

You are talking about past things that most people observed and reported. It really doesn't matter what happened months ago. What matters is the current state of the game. Seems like the new patch is great and the game is worth a trial. Guess what, it is on sale at D2D - $12. I am buying it now, it is worth trying even for the sake of it.
