Time for me to review a little favorite of mine. Space Station 13.
When I first started out on the game I had no clue what to do. It was about 6 months ago, and I just quit, and dismissed the game. A friend brought it up again to me so I decided to try it out again.
As I started up the game once again, I noticed the graphics were much different, and had new jobs. I became a security officer clueless on what to pick. I figured out the basic chat commands, and picked up the controls quite fast. Sure I used adminhelp every once in a while for things such as equpping items, and how to use items. After a while one of the admins got fed up with me asking so many questions (lol) and sent me the wiki. I spent a good hour reading it, and decided to join back in again. Since then I've picked up all the controls, and have played most of the jobs until I got them down.
Gameplay - 8/10
Where to start? First of all there is TONS of things to do in this game! From changing genes, to building bombs, Building a killer tomatoe army, I oculd go on, and on. The jobs are pretty diverse, and most of them are satisfying to play. Hell, I even found clown entertaining once. The gameplay itself is great, but could be a bit polished.
Presentation - 5/10
Now the graphics aren't amazing even for BYOND standards. Although they have been changed a lot, they still aren't the best. The textures are a bit bland, and the fire is pretty bad. The dynamic lighting adds a huge magical touch to hte game though.
Originality - 9/10
Very orginal storyline. It barely seems like it was ripped off of anything (Other then the movie "Alien")
Overall - 7/10
The game is very satisfying, and can suck you in for hours. Unfortunately bad admins, and griefers can ruin the game. I highly reccomend this to passive roleplayers, just don't expect top quality admins, and over-the-top graphics.
EDIT: Apparently I'm job banned from captain because I screwed up. I signed up for scientist, not captain. The syndies got a hold of the disc before I remembered hearing about it, and quickly ran to get it (My first time as captain, chosen at random) by blowing up the bridge. The station was destroyed, and everyone flamed me for about a round. Even one guy changed his name saying I was "best captain" sarcastically. You probably will hate the userbase, as I do.
EDIT: I love how these "Goons" Make fun of "Pubbies" by posting their conversations on a wiki. If you're a "Goon" I advise you stop atatcking those on the internet because you tend to be hated in real life.
