Game is okay but jagex is in it for the money.
You are just a number to them so don't expect ANY support when somethings wrong.
Also they just took untradeables from my account and gave me 10m in tradeables in return. I spend hours and tens of millions to get these untradeables.

It used to be good, the old classics are the best version than new versions.
Tried recovering my old account and it has been hacked few years ago. I created the account in the mid 2000's.
I filled what I could and the result resulted was denied.
Jagex customer service is the worst of all time and only believe the hacker/hackers. Until they can help and accept the request to recover my old account successful, then I can say good things about Runescape. Until then I cannot. Jagex and Runescape has left a loyal customer for life.

Been playing osrs lately, the bots and scammers at G.E. are killing it, the people on osrs are 3 times ruder than on rs3 that's one thing i notice straight away, they think nothing of crashing a world with their cannon, even tell you "hop this is my world" after you have been there an hour before they come, if it wasn't for Jagex allowing botting and rude people with cannons to crash worlds, it would be a pretty good game to play

I've been playing since 2006...its a good game but, customer service needs improving and some content need improving. Jagex as a company need to stop releasing// leaking so much future content updates because people then get excited about it and it never ends up being delivered in the near future but instead end up waiting for a very long time. This can really hurt the player base as they get fed up of waiting, and I understand that.
Runefest is alright, I've been once, and I enjoyed meeting the people who played both Old School and New School Runescape :)

This game has offered lots of good moments for me just as well as many bad ones.
If one prefers old school or new version of the game dosen't change that you may like it one day and the other something game changing may interupt your fun.
Personally my reason for give 3 star's is they listen to much to players feedback and don't go a clear direction themself rather then let community decide fate of updates by pools.
A game needs a strong baseline not bits and pieces of what do eventually pass a vote.
Oh and yeah maybe the bloody amount of bots and goldsellers may push the rating a bit down too
But it's i guess fine game at times? give it a try if really bored its free none the less.

First of all, I loved Runescape back in 2005. It was kind of a classic game but still fun. When I heard they are re-launching the old classic Runescape, I was excited to test it out (because I was not a fan of the newer Runescape Versions).
So, as said, as done. I registered an account. Unfortunately I noticed the original client is a little bit laggy for my computer so I switched to RuneLite (it is a safe opensource Client, you can also find it on github).
Well the only thing I usually do is some leveling. Like.. woodcutting or mining. Next to me, I've got a 2nd screen. So I am idle woodcutting while watching a movie on the other screen. While doing that, of course I don't answer to players who I do not know. And to be honest, how should I even know anyone when I recently registered and when I don't even plan on making friends on Runescpae, but only planing on idle leveling my skills. So yes, I just ignore all people who try to talk to me in the game.
Well, and now I was perma banned. I am not really sure what caused it. Either it was because I was using RuneLite (which is totally legal and usually accepted by Runescape - so I assume it was a false detection) or: a random guy once asked me if I was a bot (because I was idle woodcutting the whole time without answering, because why should I talk to them when they ask these kind of stupid questions, besides I was probably watching a movie) and this guy probably reported me.
So of course I tried to appeal a ban. But I could'nt. The rules approximately say "for big crimes (e.g. using macros and stuff) you can't appeal a ban". And the other and only way was to open a support ticket. I did that. I got a message after one day. They told me the same: For big crimes it is not possible to appeal a ban.
Since then I am perma banned. So I absolutely can not recommend you to play Runescape at its curent state. Their Macro detection, or however they decide their bans on, is defenitely not accurate. They can not tell apart between idle leveling and macro leveling. If they see that you are not talking and doing the same stuff 1-2h long, they assume you are a bot and ban you with no real evidence.
And in the end they do not even allow you to appeal a ban. So.. in other words: It is not allowed for you to idle leveling a certain skill and to ignore players while doing that. Basically, that is how the game works: You level something and it is up to you to decide if you want to talk to anyone. So in other words, if you exactly do what the game is made for and what the game allows you to do totally legally, you will get banned. (Irony, yes. Probably a "lol" fits in here, I guess)
To conclude my writing: I absolutely do not recommend to put any effort into Runescape or even money. Because the moment you use (for example) allowed 3rd party clients like RuneLite or you decide to focus on a certain skill to idle level that skill and if you decide on ignoring other players because you do not know anyone anyways and do not want to get to know to anyone, you will be called a bot and you get banned without a right of appealing your ban (what is also contradictorily to the rules, because they say that they allow to appeal a ban or at least try to appeal it with a support ticket, if it is categorized as one of the big ingame crimes).
So in my honest opinion, better do not waste any time and money on this game. They have enough players so they do not really care about a single one who was unfairly called guilty of using a macro.
If you think my review was too blunt, I can reassure you: It is intentionally blunt. Why? Well because the Runescape-Support does not care to be blunt to me, too - even if they were wrong with the ban decision. They just do not care about my issue and do not give me any chance to appeal the ban, to call it a false detection. So I have no real reason to falsely call the Runescape-Support caring and helping.
Thank you for reading. The people who experienced a similar problem with Runescape and Jagex will know what I am talking about in this review and unfortunately how often these kind of cases occur.

Review by Aazam Esfandiyar11 months ago
I have been playing this game for years and it's such a great game that I hate to only give it one star. However, I have been having major issues with something in the game I would like to see fixed but am unable to CONTACT ANYONE in customer service. Their website is extremely unhelpful and keeps sending me in circles instead of letting me just send a simple email. Customer support for this game is excruciating. Very unhappy with the lack of actual people to help with a major game issue.

Absolutely spot on MMORPG, have played for over 15 years, and it is still and always will be 5 stars to me. Impeccable customer service from Jagex the developers, and a solid well rounded game constantly being updated.

Giving 5 star review since they released old school. But rs3 I dislike very much....
This game was my childhood and will always be important to me
Review by Phillliiieeep Manmeet1 year ago
This is my personal experiences with runescape which, I'll begin now!
I'm breaking this down because it got progressively worse and worse..
5 stars: I began back in 2005 shortly after my brother introduced me into the game, I fell in love with it! it was AMAZING! it was free with a paid plan(a huge plus since I was 15) I completed all the free quests, and eventually convinced my mom to get me a subscription, and I got a lot of member's quests done too! everything was just simply blowing me away I sunk seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, years into the game!.
4 Stars: Runescape 3 came out in 2013, I was unimpressed, but I tried it, it was.. okay,, it felt like the gutted out certain aspects to make it flashier, and the older graphics are what made Runescape to me, I don't think you even had a proper desktop program, so I had to give it 4.
3 stars: fast forward 5 years my brother told me that RS2 was coming out as OSRS, I was amazed, simply astonished! about to bring it up to a 4 star, but then I noticed they reset my character for OSRS, I spent YEARS working on him only to be punished for playing!!! but my brother said he'd even start anew with me, and we did, and it was fun until the Bots, man there were so many bots, and due to no Human element, it was hard to get rid of them, I even started PAYING again to go to members worlds to escape and there were even MORE bots.
2 Stars: I decided if I couldn't beat then, join then, so, i went out to do my own bots, I know this was against TOS, but Jagex had no care... I couldn't contact them to bring my hard labored character over, I couldn't contact them about the bots... and it took me two weeks to get to 10 on just 3 of my skills! after a mere 4 days of botting I almost get ready to swear off the bots as I'm back to being normal on my skills of defense, mining, smithing, attack and toughness.
1 Star: I get banned, with no ability to plead my case, my brother was also botting, thankfully he never got caught and hopefully he never will, I love Runescape with all my heart, and it deeply hurt me when a game I sunk time and money into.. betrayed me.. it's one thing if Runescape up and died, I'd have no problems, I'd just be very sad, mmo's die with time, hopefully Runescape will readd the Human element, or will die before they grow into an even worse monster.

Been with them since 2000, crap game, no loyalty for there original playerbase, nice raids 2? how about a "few" genuine bosses with numerous balanced drops, all you have to do is remod existing code and pump it out, lack of slayer drops/value of slayer tasks loot wise even when your a really high slayer level, problems are endless, imbalances are endless.
Jagex has became lazy and works on aspiration targets based on profit and not quality of game experience.
Review by Redondric1 year ago
I played free for awhile, probably 300+ hours. The game is alright, aspects of the game are decent. The issue is the getting repeatedly banned for stuff I have not done. First ban: someone said "hey, are you a bot?" I didn't answer because who cares about some random person asking dumb questions. (apparently jagex) Finally, got my account back after way too much work. Then second ban, played on mobile, paid for the membership, said i was using illegal software and they know with certainty i was so, permanent ban. I am assuming my account was hijacked or something? cause i have not played it in a couple weeks and that happened a week ago. Anyways, on top of that, they charged me a membership fee first on 7-11-18 (which i agree with as i needed membership for mobile play), then they charged me again on the day my account was permanently banned on 8-6-18 (5 days early). Now i cant cancel my membership, cause my account is frozen.
I hate these people, if you play, don't pay them money. If something goes wrong, they will charge you early and then freeze you out from canceling.

endless game-play, multi national, good social venue for some hardened players, the glitches and bugs have been improved a considerable amount since i first started playing. the old school look by far my favourite theme is so fluid.
they've made a great exciting game that can literally take over your life if you allow it.
Review by Chiagoziem1 year ago
Been playing for years, as with any game it has its ups and downs but if you’re not into the new generation of game there’s always Oldschool version which is great in my opinion, a lot like the old days of playing it. The developers almost completely rely on feedback from the community so you’ll always have a say in updates.
