Overall, I was extremely disappointed with the quest and the buildup (or lack thereof) going into it. I'll just run down a list of criticisms off the top of my head.

- Too many factions were under-developed going into the quest, particularly Saradomin, Armadyl, and the Godless.

- The maze took up way too much of the quest. The game world went completely unutilized and a vast variety of interesting characters and organizations were ignored in favor of a foot race.

- The entire concept of the gods losing their divinity was stupid. It made no logical sense for many of the gods and the player to completely pass up that golden opportunity to kill off a lot of their competition (not that I want any of the major gods killed off at this time).

- Including RNG was an absolutely terrible decision.

- Randomly triggering the full extent of our "world guardian powers" came out of nowhere.

- Key plot points that have been set up throughout the series have gone nowhere. Zaros' secrecy, Nex and Char's assignments, Zamorak finding a way around Sliske's game, Zemouregal's impending betrayal, the fate of Bandos' followers, the formation of the Godless, an actual God War even taking place in the first place, etc. I could go on.

- The other three quests in the series released this year were entirely unnecessary. Creating Gielinor, Nomad and Linza being turned into wights, Sliske stealing a piece of our soul, loosening his grip on the barrows brothers, Zamorak's pact with Zaros, none of it ended up making a difference in the end beyond mechanical functions. They did nothing to actually further the story, and were ultimately a complete waste of resources.

- Sliske's scoreboard and our personal past choices had no real consequences other than locking players out of dialogue.

All of that said, the first segment of the quest was fantastic and included some of the most well-written dialogue in the game. Each character felt unique and interesting. Unfortunately, as a whole, I can't give the quest anymore than a 5/10.
