Crystal Saga is a free browser-based MMORPG. It's fairly standard for its genre, relying on the usual five classes (Knight, Rogue, Mage, Priest and Ranger), and not offering many innovations. However, Crystal Saga's strengths begin with its gorgeous 2D fantasy art and silky animation, featuring over-the-top costumes and special effects. And Crystal Saga's “auto-pilot” feature lets players grind through monsters while being AFK, which really takes away a lot of the drudgery common to browser RPGs.
Crystal Saga includes a good PvP system with PK environments on designated servers. Open PvP is only available to level 20+ players. Five PVP states are available: Peace mode won’t allow you to attack anyone; Evil is lets you attack everyone; Justice allows you to attack red-named players. Finally, Party and Guild modes protect your allies from friendly fires.
The quests are the usual go-and-fetch and kill-X-number-of-monsters. The gameplay of Crystal Saga is mostly typical for an MMORPG game but it features a robust pet system. Like players, the pets also engage in combat, level up, evolve, and learn skills, and players can distribute stats for their pet’s growth.

Cultures Online is a strategy game with RPG elements, set in the age of Vikings. The game is played in a web browser. You can play as a Viking or an Asian; both races have unique buildings and characters. CO has nice, sketchy graphics, an interesting user interface, and an above-average soundtrack. There are six types of resources; the ‘ideas’ resource is cool, as it stacks up, allowing you to research stuff when you’ve logged in after some time. PvP is optional, and the game doesn’t deliver much in the PvP aspect. There are plenty of quests available for leveling your character and acquiring gold and resources. Cultures Online might be an interesting game for an evening or two, but, as PvP is optional, it lacks the competitive aspect that makes browser-based games so interesting.See Videos

Cyber Monster 2
Cyber Monster 2 is a casual MMORPG played in the browser. It has all of the cliché ‘casual stuff’—automated combat and quests, ubiquitous pets and numerous community features for socializing while leveling up. Worth mentioning are also the benefits for cooperative players, e.g., being a member of an active guild will get you free stuff. Players can arrange their troops for upcoming battles - this allows you at least some degree of control. The fantasy-themed story is of little importance and for that matter little merit as well (still… at least it has dragons). NPCs have terrible English but at times catch you off guard with quirky humor—one NPC relates a tale about a heartbroken mermaid who lost it and turned herself into Taylor Swift, adding to this ‘What a tragedy story!’ There’s an impressive amount of content in this colorful game, but of course bear in mind that Cyber Monster 2 is a casual title with all that entails, good or bad.See Videos

Dark Age Wars
Dark Age Wars is an ‘empire building’ MMO released in 2008. It is set in the Middle Ages, and the player, a squire (historically it would mean the player is 14 to 21 years old) takes over an empty but resource-abundant city and tries expanding it and turning it into an empire. The graphics and the overall interface are quite good and play nicely off of the game’s setting. The game features some nice twists, such as players being able to take over the papacy, but the overall gameplay adheres to the genre’s canon. Dark Age Wars is played in a ‘burst manner’, with players having to wait for long periods of time while upgrading, constructing buildings or conducting research. Overall, Dark Age Wars provides a solid strategy experience and should be preferred by players who like logging in and playing a little each day.See Videos

Dawn of the Dragons
Dawn of the Dragons is a turn-based RPG played in the browser. The game is set in a fantasy world where dragons have awakened from their sleep and it’s up to the players to prevent utter destruction. The game is text-only so the battle scenes amount to (in this case, well-written) walls of text coupled with beautiful drawings of mythical beasts. Battles take the form of quests, boss fights and PvP, all draining time-replenished resources. Character customization is great and skill points have to be spent with great care. Even if the mechanics are simple—battles are fought by smashing the ‘attack’ button repeatedly—the game’s intricacies can be overwhelming as it’s difficult to come up with ways of creating a strong character. At level 5 three classes open up, allowing players to choose the play style (co-op, loner or a mix of the two) that suits them best. Dawn of the Dragons has a single hang-up. Upon draining the resources, little is left but to wait… or pay up. That being so, players who like playing in short bursts are more likely to enjoy Dawn of the Dragons, but those used to longer sessions should shy away.See Videos

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.See Videos

Dominator Battle is a strategy MMO with tower defense and RPG elements. The game features three races that influence the paths you can take during the game. As mentioned, it’s a crossover that has the players defend their cities, which have to be planned carefully indeed. Dominator Battle becomes progressively harder, and once PvP opens at level 11 there are heaps of fun to be had trying to breach other players’ cities. To the game’s credit, heroes are controllable and you can create an army that follows the hero as well. Even though other areas, like graphics and sound, lack polish, the battles, including those played against the computer, are immensely fun and exciting. There’s one thing that can ruin the experience for all but everyone: Dominator Battle is incredibly greedy. The concept is fun, but once you get asked for money the hundredth time, it becomes annoying in no time.See Videos

Dragon Born is a fantasy MMORPG, played in the browser. There are four classes – Soldier, Ranger, Priest, and Mage. With auto-quest doing pretty much everything in your stead up until you hit 20, you can safely resort to clicking skills buttons during combat or read the quests. If you really want to, because the story is a weird mash-up of Skyrim (probably), WoW, and other titles. The game looks OK, with characters lacking detail, but everything else has pretty colors; the interface is nice, too. All in all, though, Dragon Born struggles to introduce anything new in the genre, but, admittedly, it can serve as a safe haven for casual gaming during work.See Videos

Dragon Eternity (DE) is a browser-based MMORPG set in the fantasy world of Adan. Take your pick from two opposing empires and fight for dominance over the other. Nine professions and three classes, which are chosen in-game by equipping class-suited items, make Dragon Eternity an unusually dynamic game. PvP, the game's most fun aspect, opens up at level four -- such early PvP is uncommon for games like this. Quests are as plentiful as they are repetitive. Players can purchase items that aid in PvP for real money, putting paying players at an advantage. However, PvP events are fun even against the richer players: there are five game modes, including King of the Hill where 3 weaker players compete against a more powerful player. DE is fun if you like non-stop competition, but otherwise it can become somewhat tedious.See Videos

Dragon Fable is a medieval fantasy MMORPG, played in the browser. There are three classes – warrior, mage, and rogue. The graphics are Flash-based, which isn’t a good thing, at least here. However, the game’s strong point is its world -- the Dragon Fable world is ironic and funny, having a laugh at everything, especially the pitfalls of the RPG genre. Quests are also funny at times: has a quest ever asked you to turn over a pit toilet while somebody’s in it? Well, that’s a real quest in Dragon Fable. Even the plot is thrilling once it gets serious. You can also get loads of pets that aid you in combat. There are many opportunities for PvP and PvE, but Dragon Fable does steer towards mindless grinding once you get past level 20 or so.See Videos

Dragon Pals is a casual browser-based MMORPG where players get teamed up with a dragon companion. Players choose from three classes – Archer, Warrior and Mage – and level up by participating in events and doing quests. The gameplay is pretty casual, with the player being minimally immersed in the combat. Levels 1-30 are smooth sailing, but after that it does get grind-ish. The real substance, however, of Dragon Pals lies in the community and the awe-inspiring amount of content that the game presents. The community is great, with experienced players sometimes going out their way to help newbies. Dragon Pals also features alchemy, farming, single- and multi-player instances along with guild battles and even an arena. Yes, the lack of in-game support may be annoying; yes, the game might be pay-to-win. But all in all Dragon Pals has so much stuff that it’s worth it, for the early levels at the very least.See Videos

Turn-based browser RPG with the ability to join instances in teams of up to three people. There are three character classes to choose from: Mage (to wield ranged magical attacks), Warrior (to take the heavy damage while other members of the party attack), and Assasin (which possesses unique abilities to stun or poison enemy combatants). You are given 150 action points per day to complete quests, engage in PVP combat (at the Arena or in the wild), and grind away fighting mosters for xp and dropped loot. You don't have to be at the helm either. Set your character to perform which actions you want them to grind though and come back later to reap the rewards. Extra action points can be purchased with in-game currency. The game world is basically an overview map of the current town and surrounding areas. Combat is either animated or a text-based, blow-by-blow description depending on your preferences.

Dragons of Atlantis (DoA) is a strategy MMO that offers a fresh retelling of the legend of Atlantis, adding future technology and dragons to it. Players start with a city, construct buildings and recruit troops to conquer the wilderness; players can also form alliances for protection and massive attacks. A special feature is the resident dragon found in each player-controlled city. The game world is sizable and saturated, but the basics are easy to grasp if you've played similar games before. DoA focuses on acquiring and controlling resources, and one of the main means of gaining them is through plunder. Complex battle mechanics will leave you puzzled after losing a battle but happy once you’ve invested the time in understanding them.See Videos

Drakensang is a browser-based MMORPG, reminiscent of Diablo and Neverwinter Nights. The lore is there, but it’s nothing special (an almost forgotten menace – the dragon that nearly destroyed the world – has surfaced again). There are two classes, dragonknight and spellweaver. 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. Although Drakensang is not the kind of game that you’d play for years, it’s worth a try if you like crawling through dungeons and hitting left-click relentlessly.See Videos

Dungeon Inquisitor is a create-your-own-dungeon MMO. You assume the role of an evil creature which lures humans into its dungeon. Once captured, humans can be ransomed or interrogated to obtain valuable info (or, if you'd prefer, turned into demon soldiers). Players form alliances, try to attract more valuable human stock using various lures and taking over the human world with their legions of undead. The interface is text-only and takes some getting used to, but the actual game mechanics are unique and thrilling as one has to tinker around to find ways of getting stronger. Especially the interrogation part is a nice touch one would seldom encounter in similar titles. Dungeon Inquisitor seems to be a small project and as such it suffers from a lack of players and from production issues like an interface bursting with copious amounts of text. Still, this dark adventure does a good job of immersing players with alliances, crusades and more.See Videos

Eldevin is a 3D MMORPG, played in the browser. Set in an open, medieval fantasy-themed world, Eldevin sports classless leveling, fantasy lore and an intricate trade system. 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.See Videos

Empire Universe 3 is a strategy MMO ‘empire building’ game, played in the browser. It boasts 9 classes and an interesting (yet at times confusing) user interface. The game has the main features you’d expect from a game of this caliber: resource management, expansion, forming alliances and so on. Plentiful customization options are available in this game: aside from choosing the race and look of your character, the stat point system allows you to direct your empire towards trade, conquest, reconnaissance, etc. Construction and research times are quite slow – be warned. The sci-fi lore is well-written, but the quests are uneventful. The community seems quite helpful, but there are not that many players online. On the flip side, Empire Universe 3 doesn’t require a huge daily time investment, and, as the game is largely text-based, you can become the grand schemer you always were destined to be, finding your way to victory through sheer brain power.See Videos

Ensemble Online (EO) is a sandbox MMORTS with RPG elements. Players start off in a village and gather resources to build their own cabin in the woods; fight monsters to level up; and quest to get all sorts of goodies. The game takes place on a huge real-time map. Now, EO is still very rough around the edges. Patchy animation goes hand in hand with frame rate spikes. Quests are completely botched as you have to provide screenshots to the admins to turn in quests. Gathering materials is slow and building something is even slower. Netcode bugs sometimes leave you stranded a hundred squares from where you want to be, etc. Still the graphics are nice and so is character customization. However, the crucial point is that EO is full of great ideas. Even now there’s a lot of fun to be had in this rather unique blend of the two towering game genres.See Videos

Epic Duel (ED) is a turn-based dueling game where you join one of two factions on planet Delta V and become a Tech Mage, a Bounty Hunter or a Mercenary, then train to acquire new weapons, participate in 1v1 and 2v2 combat and bring glory to your faction. ED offers plenty of variety for a Flash game—players can customize their characters well enough; skills are plentiful as are items and achievements. Matchmaking is quick and, even though ED doesn't have a tutorial, it’s easy to grasp. 2v2 battles are the game’s salt—highly addictive, plus they do require some knowledge of both your opponents’ and your own skills. That being said, ED is definitely a game to be played in short bursts, otherwise it gets repetitive because there are only two game modes. The in-game currency gives advantages to those who pay. However, as there’s always something to do in the ample game world, and as the matchmaking is that simple… logging in and fighting for a bit is just too easy to find serious fault with this game.See Videos

There are a number of factions, all of which have unique card decks and racial strengths and weaknesses. The skill level is Elo-based, which makes finding matched opponents a lot easier.

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. Three vanilla classes are featured – mage, archer and warrior. Leveling up is really fast, plus the game offers some well-developed sideline activities such as pet keeping and enchanting. 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.See Videos

The game is set in a sci-fi setting reminiscent of the Warhammer universe -- three races are struggling for victory on a planet Xenos that is the only source of a rare resource, called... Xenos. The player is given a fresh, non-developed colony on the planet, and has to build buildings, gather resources, form alliances with other players or engage them in combat when their army is big enough. Players can also raid rebel forces (monsters) on the planet and complete quests to gain resources faster. There are lots of unit types (infantry, vehicles, air, defensive, offensive, etc.) and the game is a challenge for anyone who enjoys military strategy. The game does have a "pay up" attitude, as its paid features are presented to the player somewhat aggressively.

There’s a pet system and you can use your pet's skills as well as your own. Fantasy of Sword is instance-based, and quests aren’t very imaginative; however, if you like to get to know a fantasy world through text, you’ll enjoy the quests, as quest NPCs tell a lot about the story through dialogues. There’s a small but nice community; players can form guilds and do PvP, as well as participate in the market.

Fortuna is an MMORTS developed by Perfect World Entertainment. Players build their cities, recruit troops and manage resources to become the best in the world, which is based on medieval Europe. Although combat cannot be controlled, players have to prepare troops for deployment and manage their generals wisely. The game is pretty interesting in the beginning, mostly because the story unfolds quite masterfully. Mid-game is dedicated to finding a good alliance and learning PvP, but in the late game players inadvertently find themselves without much to do. While Fortuna has its good moments, it simply lacks engaging features to keep the players’ attention.
