A Mystical Land

A Mystical Land

A Mystical Land is a browser-based MMORPG that raises the bar for Facebook RPGs. Choose from four classes and set off to explore the vast game world. The game’s quests are dynamic, and NPC dialogue is quite funny; however, the real treat is the vast crafting/profession system – you can actually play the game without killing any mobs… and make a bunch of stuff in the process! Players can also get achievements and rewards for doing them. The game’s graphics are nice and cartoony, but there can be performance issues in the city. A Mystical Land is admittedly directed towards casual gamers, but the game world is engrossing and vivid enough to offer something for the more serious players, too.

Age of Conan

Age of Conan

One of the most accessible and detailed free-to-play MMORPGs out there. AoC is developed by Funcom, the masterminds behind the boundary breaking Anarchy Online. Amazing graphics even three years after release, a great number of quests (for the later levels, too) and epic lore that stays true to the original Conan books by Robert E. Howard. Four ‘archetype’ classes – priest, soldier, rogue, and mage, each of them having three sub-classes. A unique, hit-direction-based combat system that requires direct involvement from the player. Quest and skill-wise, the game does seem to aspire to be a ‘WoW clone’; however, AoC clearly beats WoW in two aspects: the soundtrack and the abundant amount of gore. Loads of PvP and PvE instances, with PvP being a real skills test due to the complex combat system.

Age of Wushu

Age of Wushu

Age of Wushu (AoW) is a fighting MMORPG with considerable depth to it. After a tiring two hour tutorial players choose their faction from 8 martial arts schools and try to make sense of what to do next. AoW is heavily inspired by Chinese architecture and culture, featuring vast and beautiful landscapes as well as intricately designed buildings. The fact that the game is thoughtfully developed shows through all the time, starting from the huge (though sometimes confusing) skill system (and the tremendous amounts of iffy translations for each skill). Age of Wushu sports numerous unique features, such as the absence of a leveling system, replaced by skill-based leveling instead. Players' characters become NPCs when logged out. You can patrol the streets while offline -- or you can get kidnapped as well! RPG fans will be captivated, but regular players can become confused and overwhelmed with AoW’s complexity and abundance of options.

Aion

Aion

Fantastically rich landscapes and highly developed quests in this fantasy role playing game -- at least at the earlier levels. Enter the world of Atreia where the Elyos and Asmodian races are battling for territory. Both races are flight-capable and your characters can achieve flight after level ten. There are four starting classes and six intricate crafting professions to choose from. There is a special type of arena called The Abyss where players from both factions can attempt to seize control over strongholds and defend them for more resources using a mix of player-versus-player and player-versus-environment tactics. There are plenty of instances for party assaults and even player-defined macros you can set up to customize your character’s combat. Make no mistake. You won’t be able to advance without PvP interactions, so if you are looking for a strictly PvE game, this might not be for you. The download is only a free trial, but well worth the time investment if for the visuals and excellent game mechanics alone.

Alien Arena

One of the most popular free first person shooters out there. Works on almost any platform: PC/Linux/Mac OS. Nice graphics. Created to be the perfect cross-breed of Quake Arena III and Unreal Tournament using retro science fiction for style. In Alien Arena you will find the traditional first person shooter game types as well as Deathball and Cattle Prod (which combine deathmatch with some odd goals to complete). Choose from nine different characters, each with their own benefits and shortcomings. Lots of mods (called mutators) are used to change up the rules -- and add a whole lot of fun.

Allegiance

Allegiance

After the destruction of Earth by an asteroid, warring human factions struggle for resources (specifically Helium3). This is an excellent combination of 3D first person shooter and real time strategy set in outer space. Two teams with dozens of players per side battle it out over the course of an hour or two. The commander builds bases and sets up mining operations, orders bombing runs, and allocates money. Players can switch between ship types on the fly (and even beefier ships if their commander gives them the cash). New players are encouraged to fly scout ships for a few weeks and lay down sensors to spy on enemy movements or keeping other units repaired that are mining or bombing. Good news for new players: they set up servers specifically for new players so they won’t get taken advantage of by veterans while learning the ropes.

Allods Online

Allods Online

Allods Online is a MMORPG game quite similar to World of Warcraft. Choose from six races, two factions – The League and The Empire – and eight ‘general’ classes which vary slightly from race to race. The lore is well developed and mixes space/steampunk themes with regular fantasy. Allods has numerous quests that supplement the story. A unique aspect of Allods Online is the astral ship PvP where battles between player-controlled ships commence in the vast astral. Players also can play Goblinoball -- something quite like football, but with a live goblin as the ball. Allods Online offers an engrossing, well-developed experience for anyone who likes games akin to WoW, but doesn’t want to pay for it.

Andromeda 5

Andromeda 5

Andromeda 5 is a spaceship action MMO that can be played in the browser. It features a vast array of customizable ships as well as numerous galaxies to explore; players acquire skills that further make their characters unique. More than 200 missions are available, not to mention the quite intensive PvP where players can participate in free-for-all deathmatches and team games as well. Andromeda 5 sports nice graphics and altogether there’s a surprising amount of content that will keep you busy for a while. The game does, however, fall flat when you consider that Andromeda falls well within the Eve Online-dominated spectrum of MMOs and when you take into account that the cash shop seems to give paying players a very real edge.

Archlord

Archlord

3D fantasy role playing game with a heavy focus on player versus player combat (on the way to becoming the supreme Archlord). While graphics, character detail, mounts, and combat animations are fantastic, the game world offers little in the way of player versus environment opportunity. Choose from three races: Human, Orc, and MoonElf with a few classes per race to choose from. Multi-classing is allowed. The most powerful (and perhaps the most popular) Race/Class combination is the MoonElf Elementalist, wielding more robust spells than the other race's magic-using counterparts. At release, the game was given some bad reviews but has since evolved their content, graphics, and gameplay through a series of revisions (and of course changed to the free to play model). If you have a hang-up on using click-to-move versus using the WASD keys, no worries: they offer both.

Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare is Obsidian Entertainment (developers of Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity and Skyforge) and My.com's answer to Wargaming's World of Tanks, albeit with a more modern twist to it. Instead of playing around with World War II tanks, Armored Warfare lets you command post-1950s tanks, ranging from the lowly M41 to the fearsome M1 Abrams.

Armored Warfare's core mechanics are what you would expect of a polished tank combat MMO. You start off with a low tier tank and work your way up the vehicle tech tree through the game's PvP and co-op modes. Each tank type has its own unique characteristics, and can be further customized to fit the needs of the player. As in World of Tanks, your vehicles also have trainable crew members with their own unique talents.

Gameplay in Armored Warfare is more frenetic than in World of Tanks, given the technology level of the setting. The sortie maps are also smaller, which greatly speeds up the time for contact between two opposing forces.

Armored Warfare's graphics are great, though poorly optimized at times. If you have a computer that can run it smoothly at ultra settings, then you're in for a treat. The tank models, though visually pleasing, could use a bit more accurate detailing in terms of gun ports and viewports. The sound department is quite lacking in this game and needs to be beefed up for more realism and impact.

Overall, Armored Warfare is a pleasant experience if you're looking for a fast-paced tank battle MMO with a good deal of depth and polish. If you favor slower, more tactical tank gameplay, then it's off to the *other* tank game for you.

Astro Lords

Astro Lords

Astro Lords is an MMORPG/Strategy set in a sci-fi universe. Players control an asteroid, construct and upgrade buildings and fight with others to gain control over the Oort cloud. The game can be played on iOS, Android and desktop devices.

Players might be positively appalled by the lack of character customization, but that is more than compensated by the fact that eventually you can move your base, perhaps towards the members of your alliance, or the enemy if you feel you can gain an edge. The combat has players duke it out in turn-based combat with spaceships in the vast void. It takes quite some skill and provides ample entertainment, because the fights involve dodging slow-moving projectiles (there are lasers too!) and hiding behind asteroids. You’ll either hate it or love it, but it must be said it’s highly original.

Astro Lords is definitely a promising title, but the strategy elements could very well be executed better. The skill tree, huge as it is, confuses the player, because it inevitably makes you wonder if you’re looking at a spreadsheet. Even though Astro Lords doesn’t push players into buying anything, progress is quicker with pockets full of premium currency.

Aura Kingdom

Aura Kingdom

Aura Kingdom (AK) is an anime-inspired fantasy MMO from Aeria Games, boasting eight classes (plus one mystery class), a well-developed companion system and a unique skill tree.

The game features beautiful, cartoony graphics in an open world with instances (dungeons) supplementing it as well. Players get acquainted with the game mechanics by doing a tutorial with end-game items and stats, but upon waking up start off with the usual sort of quest chain, which can be done quickly with auto-path. Leveling is fast; assiduous players can hit the level cap in a matter of weeks, if not days. PvP and crafting opens up quite late. AK features immersive combat with the player being able to dodge enemy skill-shots and run around the enemy while attacking. There’s also an elaborate companion system, featuring combat pets called Eidolons that supplement the abilities of the player’s class.

Overall, Aura Kingdom seems to be a well-polished even if not terribly unique title. It lacks end-game content as of now, but that should change soon. The game’s sole challenge is PvP, and perhaps its lack of real difficulty in other areas can make this game a bit more boring than it could be.

There are two factions, both having three classes – Commando, Soldier, and Gunner – with distinct features. Vehicles, tanks, and aircraft, based on historic WWII models are also represented in the game. Players earn valor and hero points as they progress through the game; these points allow the purchasing of additional weapons and items. The matchmaking system matches players according to their skill, giving the game a newbie-friendly experience. If you enjoy cartoony graphics and a fast-paced yet relaxed atmosphere, try Battlefield Heroes.

Call of Thrones

Call of Thrones

Call of Thrones is a turn-based 3D MMORPG, played in the browser. The story is set in ancient China, in the age of the Three Kingdoms. The player can thus start from three locations and choose from three classes. Call of Thrones follows more of a lazy click-autorun-quest mindset while you get used to the gameplay. The real fun starts when PvP arenas become available at level 20 -- skills are plentiful and strategy isn’t just a word in Call of Thrones’ PvP, which also has guild wars and a ‘siege mode’. The game’s interface is quite cluttered, and so are the graphics -— but they’re bearable for a browser-based game. There are numerous exotic pets and mounts. The game features a well-detailed crafting system; however, that, along with the PvP, are the only things worth mentioning in Call of Thrones.

Chaos Heroes Online

Chaos Heroes Online

Chaos Heroes Online (CHO) is a MOBA, based on the Chaos mod for the original DotA. It is published by Aeria Games and features, for some players, welcome deviations from the passive gameplay other MOBAs often encourage.

CHO features two maps that differ in scale. Items can be bought from everywhere (making consumables much more valuable), and jungling is discouraged as it only provides gold, not experience. Matches are capped at 45 minutes, and teleports happen instantly. The differences don’t end here—there are no observation wards in CHO as well. A rather formidable array of available heroes provides great variety to this game, but CHO cannot be deemed ‘DotA on the proverbial steroids’, as it simply seems to be of a lesser quality.

The following are to blame: the graphics lack in detail, the voicing falls short of the other F2P standards, and paying players can enter the match pumped up on cash-shop bonuses. CHO seems more like a mélange of the most popular MOBAs, not the competitive, fast-paced rampage it markets itself to be. It’s still fun and plays well, but, beyond the slight rule and gameplay changes, CHO doesn’t offer anything that unique.

CA’s gameplay is smooth and competitive, but the game has a ranking system, allowing newer players to compete, too. There are numerous game modes: Deathmatch; Capture the Flag; Team Deathmatch; Zombie mode; etc. Some of the modes, like Hired Guns and Spy Hunt, are actually quite original. An achievement system allows users to show off their achievements and adds to the well-developed friend/clan system. As in most F2P games, annoying players and cheaters are a problem; however, both gradually pass by as you reach higher ranks. Those looking for a competitive FPS will find Combat Arms highly entertaining.

Conquest of Champions

Conquest of Champions

Conquest of Champions (CC) is a collectible card game that features vibrant aesthetics along with a new, strategic spin on the classic CCG gameplay.

CC features three factions—elves, dwarves, and the undead—each having two controllable, battle-thirsty heroes and of course a separate card pool. Players get introduced to the nuts and bolts, but not every nook and cranny, of the gameplay during the six-stage tutorial, and then jump right into action. The combat system cannot be fully described here, but it must be said that it allows for a plethora of strategies as there are two bases plus one hero to annihilate, so sacrificing the main hero for minerals, or utilizing the terrain with counterintuitive moves (like in chess, really)—both are entirely doable in CC. Furthermore, players AND their cards can level up, providing a nice touch to the already fun mechanics.

CC looks like a keeper. Players don’t have to buy anything to have a shot at winning; the game seems complex (and intense!) enough to warrant at least a few hours of play; and of course the client both looks and plays quite stunningly.

The battles (which make up the core of Cosmic Break) are intense and fun to participate in. Single player is available, too, but coop (also available) is more fun than playing alone. Simplistic anime graphics. If you pardon the graphics, Cosmic Break is a fun game with its own flavor and a gameplay that without a doubt beats most of the similar games out there.

Featuring PvP and PvE game modes, the game sports numerous superheroes with in-depth character customization and fast-paced combat. DCUO is meticulously detailed and has up-to-date graphics. The cutscenes are top notch; so are voice actors and everything else that’s production-related. PvP, although a bit unbalanced, is great in the PS3 version. The PC version runs smoother, but combat is much slicker on the PS3. Upon reaching the level cap, players right now don’t have that much to do, but Sony is hard at work trying to make the game more dynamic with updates (though the DLC packs aren’t free).

Dead Frontier

Dead Frontier

Dead Frontier is a browser-based 3D survival horror MMO, played from an overhead view. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world with zombies swarming the streets and players doing their best to kill them, either single-handedly or in a team.

Players fight for their lives, buy ammo and increase their stats by killing hordes of zombies in a creepy environment where it’s impossible to see two steps ahead. Dead Frontier has much variety, sporting 19 classes and 100+ weapons in an extensive game world. The real fun in this game, arguably, is to be had playing co-op as real people tend to be more fun than the AI. Still there’s no voice chat, but typing while playing is awkward. Some say that Dead Frontier is quite difficult, but once you get the hang of it, this quickly turns out to be untrue.

Dead Frontier definitely has some merit: at times it’s genuinely scary and fun, plus it has a great atmosphere and soundtrack with good visuals. However, it just gets too repetitive and easy for players to bother with it after the first few hours.

Doom Warrior

Doom Warrior

Doom Warrior is a gory, turn-based fighting arena MMO heavily influenced by the aesthetics of the Conan the Barbarian universe.

Doom Warrior has the player become a slave and fight his or her way to freedom by defeating other contestants. Be warned that the game contains not only gore, but nudity in the form of ever-naked breasts for the female models (apparently they hadn’t invented armor that covers the bosom). There are numerous beasts to fight and areas to unlock. The game is turn-based in the way that it allows attacking and blocking, mostly in turns. Blocks are made depending on what the UI tells you—it’s sad as the most important part of the game is dumbed down, really. The story is ultimately boring, but does a good job of preparing the player for the oh-so-serious battles to come. Characters are customized based on stats, and there are buffs even non-paying fighters can acquire.

Doom Warrior is fun in short bursts—actually, you can only play in short bursts after level 15 or so, as there’s a ‘stamina system’ in place here—and the abundance of content ensures that you can play it for months upon months. The question of whether you’d want to remains open, though.

Dragon Nest sports six classes with skills that supplement one another in dungeons and parties. The best thing about Dragon Nest is its combat system, featuring intense, skill-based battles that happen in real time. The rest is impeccably polished as well with abundant cinematics, great voice acting and lots of content. The graphics aren't that good but fit the overall tone of the game. In larger battles it can become hard to follow the events on the screen. Both PvP and PvE are well-developed with raids happening often and offering a good way of getting rare items.

Dragon Nest, even though released three years ago, is still one of the best MMORPGs in terms of gameplay and especially combat. There are, however, valid complaints that the endgame tends to be overly competitive.

Both PvE and PvP are plentiful, combat is fluid and the graphics are nice, especially for the light game client. Class skill trees are more detailed and stand out among those of similar games. There are lots of fun and unique mounts, too. The crafting system is difficult and time-consuming, though. Plus, as the game is still in its beta (which means that many quests, hopefully, aren’t scripted yet), expect grinding, and lots of it.

Drakensang has beautiful graphics, especially for a game played in the browser, and a detailed game world. The game has a spectacular soundtrack which is responsive to what’s happening. The combat doesn’t take much skill, but it’s fun either way; plus, PvP is quite rewarding if you have to click your opponents… a lot.

Eldevin features hundreds of quests and dynamic leveling, which means that in-game decisions influence the path a character can take later on. The game can be overwhelming at first, featuring about 100 skills and six talent trees, but these are introduced only gradually. PvP is instanced with arenas and battlegrounds available to the more competitive; it’s also a real skills test as combat is immersive and strategy-dependent. There are also 14 dungeons that offer plenty of co-op opportunities for the socially minded denizens of Eldevin. Crafting and trading opportunities are plentiful, with the game boasting 14 different professions. For what it’s worth, the story is well-written and the world of Eldevin seems quite sizable, providing an abundance of quest, secret and grinding opportunities.

Runescape is the first comparison that comes to mind when discussing Eldevin. Truly, Eldevin, even though a unique and polished game, can and does slip into the genre tropes established by Runescape and its successors. That being said, Eldevin still offers a rather compelling, even if at times tedious journey.

Eternal Saga is a cartoony MMORPG taking place in a world that’s being invaded by demons. Scary, but the cuteness of the graphics kind of balances it out.

Social features are represented as well – guilds, parties and so on. PvP can be done on a guild scale or in the arena. Eternal Saga has quite a few trappings of a casual game, namely auto questing and the relaxed atmosphere, but the game doesn’t play itself and gives players considerable control over combat and other activities. Altogether, this is a perfectly fine casual MMORPG which few will love but fewer still will hate.

Players get by with piracy, manufacturing, exploration, combat, and more -- to each his own. Eve Online has all the trappings of a typical MMORPG, but it's also much more -- it’s actually one of the richest online gaming experiences nowadays.

The graphics are, naturally, quite outdated (even though they’ve been constantly updated since 1999), but the new, reworked UI sometimes causes complaints.

There’s a depth to this game few can surpass – the world is full of secrets, and exploring it promises much fun; the PvE is on par with most pay-to-play titles; the community is inviting and helpful.

Although the graphics and animation haven’t aged well, the interface is very convenient and the soundtrack leaves no more do be desired.

Firefall is an MMO/Shooter set in a sci-fi universe where Earth is under attack by extra-dimensional aliens. From the very outset the game captivates with great graphics, intensive battles and a story (played in an open world) that echoes the epic scale of Pacific Rim. There’s a massive single-player campaign played out with hundreds of other players. Each of the five classes has a significant role in combat, which reminds one of Tribes. There are also jetpacks that make everything much more intense and fun. MMO elements like crafting and mass-invasion events make Firefall stand out even more. Not to say that it’s all rainbows and unicorns all the way, though: there’s not enough content, and progressing through levels is patchy.
