My Thoughts on New World as a new Player! (Review)

Content of the article: "My Thoughts on New World as a new Player! (Review)"

Hey everyone! New to the sub. I recently made a video previewing "New World," if you'd like to check it out here is the link: {New World Game Preview | New Player Impressions}

Here is a breakdown for everyone who doesn't want to watch –

  • User Inferface: This is, in my opinion, the best UI I think I've ever seen in a MMORPG. It's extremely clean, easy to understand, and looks great. I think it's hard to do the UI justice until you experience it yourself, but the chat is amazing and there is something so satisfying about how the XP/loot pops up next to your character as you progress through the world.
  • Crafting: Love the crafting/gathering. IT reminds me Minecraft or Runescape. It's just very calm and relaxing. I wish it had fishing, but maybe in the future!
  • Questing: I DIDN'T include this in the video, my only missing topic, but I really dislike the questing. I'm sure you can all agree. It's just too basic, rinse and repeat recycled content.
  • Combat: I don't like the combat for a few reasons. First of all, I'm not a Souls fan and this reminds me of the clunkiness of souls. I like this a bit better, but not much. In particular, I dislike how abilities work. Only having 3 is weak, but you could remedy that a bit by lowering the cooldowns. I think the cooldowns are too long and make them feel more like cooldowns than abilities you can weave in and out of rotations. The weapons also feel super unbalanced.
  • Community: I think this is where the game truly shines. In my video I highlight two specific examples, but I just love the 3 faction system and proximity chat. I had so much fun with proximity chat running around talking smack to people or engaging in co-op content. It's also really cool to see stories and rivalries develop amongst clans on the servers. "Booty Gang" was the clan on my server running the show and in my short time playing the game I remember, and fear their name lol
  • Presentation: Graphics are pretty great. I didn't crash at all either. No complaints here, the game functions pretty well. You have your typical MMO jolts and jitters occasionally, but overall this game feels pretty polished. When you consider there are people running around everywhere, fighting stuff, fighting each other, upgrading cities, setting campfires, chopping down trees… there is just so much going on in the world at any given time, and the game handles it very well.
Read:  Hitman : Absolution. A brilliantly cinematic masterpiece of a video game, and easily my favorite one in the franchise. Here's my review :

So those are my thoughts. Watching the video with a like would be greatly appreciated if you like the video, but overall I just wanted to share my thoughts here. I'm by no means an expert in the MMO field (played WoW and FFXIV a bit), but I do pride myself in doing game reviews and I think this game is very pleasantly surprising. What are all of your thoughts?

If anyone is curious to check out the game, here is a link to the site: New World
