See The Settlers Online. Castle Empire is a browser-based MMO strategy game developed by Ubisoft. You start with a town center, construct buildings, gather resources, explore the map and attack lawless robbers once you’ve reached level 17. There are nine troop varieties and numerous resource types that players can use to their advantage. Castle Empire has plenty of social features – for example, you can add friends and send them goods – and this is handy because the game can get tiring after the initial power-leveling is finished. Later in the game players can equip their explorers with minerals which allow them to search for adventures (these always end in a big battle with great rewards).
The graphics are nice, and the game runs smoothly on older computers too. PvP is yet to be implemented. Altogether, if you already like this kind of strategy game, Castle Empire is a completely harmless time waster – but definitely not anything groundbreakingly original.

Castlot is a browser-based MMO strategy game set in 6th century Britain – the time of King Arthur and his knights. Players choose between two factions and are introduced to the fine points of the game with an interactive tutorial. Castlot’s story is definitely a strong point: players will often find themselves wondering what’ll happen next. The other features aren’t that good, though: bland RPG elements do little to add to the game’s overall value; Castlot is centered on battles, and players will be surprised at how boring these battles can be. Furthermore, the long wait times (which can only be reduced through the cash shop) have made experienced players infamously refer to the game as ‘Cashalot’. Not that it’s all bad to be fair: community features are excellent and so are some strategy elements like the ability to set traps, etc. The bottom line – it’s a diverse game that can be fun, but mostly isn’t.See Videos

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.See Videos

Clash of the Dragons
Clash of the Dragons is a fantasy-themed MMO collectible card game. There are four classes, each giving bonuses to certain types of cards – that’s why players have to tailor their card decks to fit their class. The battle system is unique among this type of game; in Clash of the Dragons the cards act as a player’s hitpoints. The game sports some RPG elements, like the ability to level up and move around the game world in search for foes. Visually, the game is somewhat lacking in terms of card design, especially in comparison with real-life collectible card games. The gameplay is fun, however, and if you like the genre there’s a good chance you’ll like Clash of the Dragons for its unique spin on the meaning of the card deck.See Videos

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.See Videos

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

Dark Swords is an isometric MMORPG, mainly played through text. The setting is a medieval fantasy world, and there are five races to pick from as well as several weapon types for your character. Beginners can and sometimes do become lost in the vast and detailed game world. Quests, PvP and skills are well-developed, and the developers display a consistent preference for layers of detail so rich that non-hardcore gamers may find them annoying. Pointedly, the graphics are virtually non-existent in this game -- the game could very well function without a graphical interface. Dark Swords doesn’t try to conform to the expectations of the average player, and that’s what makes the game enjoyable to some, but outrageously complicated to others.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

Dekaron (aka 2Moons) is a 3D MMORPG developed by Nexon. The background is something of a dark fantasy. Dekaron features seven classes (plus two more upcoming) and two factions. This diversity supplements the PvP-centric gameplay well. The combat arcade style combat requires some skill. Mounts and pets are included; so are siege events and open-world PvP action. Nice if somewhat outdated graphics add to the game’s dark atmosphere. Players can access open areas as well as instanced dungeons. Dekaron is a quality game -- like most Nexon games – in terms of content. Fishing, crafting, PvP and events – there’s certainly a lot to do in Dekaron.See Videos

Dofus is a 2D MMORPG by the French company Ankama Games. It’s set on a colorful, anime-inspired world that’s constantly being updated and expanded upon. Dofus can seem quite complex at first glance, and that’s because it is: there are 15 classes, 22 professions, mounts, dragons, an elaborate crafting system and much more. The turn-based, somewhat restrictive combat also can seem daunting at first, but it quickly turns out to be fun and full of mind-boggling intricacies. The game has a remarkable longevity—the player’s level caps at 200 and then you can share experience with your guild members. The community is vibrant and active, sporting more than 2 million active players, plus there are many incentives to be social, like dungeons, guilds and player shops. As for allowing your kids play Dofus, there are a few cusses here and there, but generally the developers have made it safe for children. Dofus charms from the get go and doesn’t let go—it’s fun, quirky and nothing short of being a treat for the senses. The free-to-play phase is quite restrictive, though, but you may find that it’s worth subscribing.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

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.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 Nest is an MMORPG by Eyedentity games, published by Nexon in NA and Gamigo in Europe. Start your adventure in the fantasy world and follow the immersive story by leveling up and interacting with the hilarious NPCs. 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.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

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.

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.

Special social features allow players to climb the virtual ladder and, in the end, become DragonSoul champions. 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.

Duel of Champions (DoC) is an online collectible card game set in the Might & Magic universe. Choose from three factions with unique bonuses and try to become the mightiest card master there is. The game is well-developed and beautiful – the kind you’d expect from Ubisoft – but the tutorial does have a Facebook-y feeling. From the very first match, however, players see that DoC isn’t a typical CCG. Card lanes are not uncommon in these games – however, special event cards and resource management add greatly to making the game more complex and interesting. So does the ability to create individual card decks. PvP gameplay is exciting, plus, as DoC boasts a huge player pool, finding an opponent is easy. But the most appealing part of DoC is its depth and complexity. There’s a lot to be learned but also a lot of fun to be had.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
