The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Kaelah]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
As the first and only MUD I've ever played, I can't really compare
Sindome to anything else, nor do I know how it stacks up against
others. But I can say that it's the most immersive RP I've ever
Sindome has enough active players to make the city feel alive.
Stuff's happening every day and if you don't witness it yourself,
you'll a hear almost certainly hear gossip about it. I find the
amount of detail in what you can do with your character very
impressive. I especially love what a character can do with the right
skills. You can have artists, assassins, wage slaves, hustlers,
strippers, reporters, mechanics, doctors... There are lots of roles to
fill or aspire to.
My biggest criticism (maybe my only real one) is most definitely the
learning curve of playing the actual game. If you're inexperienced
like me, you'll feel like you're studying for a test with all the
functions you have to memorize. It's overwhelming, and the staff are
very anti-hand holding. It felt unapproachable at first, in fact it
drove me away for nearly a year.
I've come back with appropriate expectations, and actual knowledge
of how to play, and I've been completely sucked into the world. It's
the best RP I've ever been part of. If you love cyberpunk and rp, you
should at least take a peek to see if it's your style.
