The following review is the opinion of the review's author [GreenTextDan] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.

The community is generally not very helpful, as they are mostly long
time players who don't want to answer the same old questions again.
This isn't a big issue as the game isn't rocket science to figure
out. The admins are a great group of people, unless you take into
account they have lives and the 'tertiary' admins are just the most
unpleasant of people all around. If you don't get along with one of
these guys, you're going to have a very bad time. It's not uncommon
for the admins to play favorites with who they will bend the rules for
and then scorn people who try and do the exact same thing. There is
very little consistency and if you point this out, there will be a
blathering paragraph about how this isn't a democracy from one of the
unpleasant and unfriendly admins. Personally, the game is great, but
the community of higher ups makes the game hard to play for the long
term. Come in for the scenery, leave because you dislike toxic people.

(The following review comment is the opinion of the comment's author [Kisaki] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff).

I remember, back then in 2015 when I created my character. I thought,
'Maybe it's a hack and slack dubbed with RP.' No, it wasn't.

As a fan of Sims, I had a good surprise: technically, you can be
anything you can as long as it supports cyberpunk theme, it's like a
second life. There are lots of options and jobs, entertainment, and
facilities.

I decided my character would be a cyber doc.
You can be the good or the evil through text. Attacking a character
would need legitimate reason. I took the good path, until getting to
know the fight mechanics better.

In game, I got a lot of support from some veteran characters. They
sometimes made up a plot, like hiring me as a runner, to help me earn
some money when I was a noob and unemployed.

Some characters are friendly, but some characters can't be. It's
like you ask The Joker to be friend with Batman, or Venom to be friend
with Spiderman, or a thug to be friend with a cop. We have 'bad
guys' characters that we secretly love. They make the RP so lively.
Just don't confuse characters with players.

Once in OOC, they're as friendly as the actors who played the
nemesis characters together. Don't take an IC offense as something
OOC.

I also got the 'Find out IC' or FOIG answer for some of my IC
questions, but well I understood I had to make a little effort. I just
had to ask IC. Easy.

It's not hard to find things IC, you can ask the 'SIC', the IC
chat channel. Any immy or newbie who encounters this answer, takes a
shot there and gets the answer.

I play the same character since almost 2 years ago. This game changed
my life, as I didn't know I would be hooked.

You are not limited to hack and slash like other muds. Here, you
write your story, along with other players. Of course it takes time to
separate IC and OOC, and now I take them as two different worlds.

Heavy RPers and people liking text games or reading will surely be
hooked.

I won't complain about staff. From time to time, on the OOC channel,
we get to chat together or share funny stuff (Mostly fun stuff). This
is like family. Everybody gets along.

We're not mute at all. We have a newbie channel and two OOC
channels. While RPing you can also use an OOC command with the
character you're with. In game, you have a public channel, and the
in-game internet. You're never left alone when in need.

We have a town hall event every six months, where every player and
staff log in to a special area to discuss the game and how to improve
it.

Staff are dedicated, even in low number they do their best. They're
the reason why the game improves. Building takes time, but they can
manage. They create good plots too, like gangs fight or the attack on
the Hall of Justice.

Unless you're a rule breaker, you will enjoy Sindome for years. Some
players are there for a decade, I'm just at my 2nd year and I will
continue for sure. Good RP always is rewarding.
