Star Conflict

Star Conflict

Star Conflict, in a nutshell, can be best described as World of Tanks in space. This space game shares a lot of similarities in game mechanics, features, and progression with the popular tank brawler. If you're familiar with World of Tanks, then you'll feel right at home in Star Conflict.

Instead of commandeering tanks from humanity's bygone ages of warfare and destruction, players get to pilot high-tech space-faring battleships... for more warfare and destruction. Players get to choose their faction and sub-faction at the start of the game, which will determine their initial ship choices and starting missions. There's a ton of ship choices, with varying roles in team play, and you'll have to slog through the grind to unlock them and their upgrade modules.

Combat is fairly paced and fluid, with multiple PvE and PvP modes providing plenty of gameplay variety. For the more competitive player, there's Guild vs Guild warfare where clanners get to vie for space territory.

Like World of Tanks, Star Citizen can get extremely grindy, especially when you're unlocking newer, more advanced ships and upgrades. Some of that grind, you can quickly alleviate by investing in the game's cash shop, if you're willing to sink in some real life moolah.

Master X Master

Master X Master

NCSoft's Master X Master is a fast-paced MOBA-type game with both PvE and PvP elements in the equation. Players get to choose their heroes (called Masters) from NCSoft's stable of developed titles, such as Statesman from the now-defunct City of Heroes MMORPG, or Blade and Soul's Jinsoyun and Poharan.

Players get to unlock new Masters and persistent upgrades for them through extensive PvE missions. PvP comes in the form of the standard 3-lane battlegrounds, a base control map, and a quick deathmatch mode that will surely please instant action gamers. Mini-games that train players with various twitch mechanics are also in the game as well.

Master X Master differs from other MOBAs in that the control scheme is similar to traditional MMORPGs. Players must use the WASD scheme and must manually aim auto attacks as well as special skills with their mouse.

Unique and central to Master X Master is its Tag Team system where players get to choose two Masters for a match and get to swap them at any time with a cooldown. This amusing feature makes for tactical match-ups, making battles frantic and fun.

If you're hankering for a new, fun twist on the MOBA formula, as well as a fan of NCSoft's pantheon of characters, then Master X Master is definitely the game for you. The game recently concluded its final Closed Beta phase and will be launching this summer season for the North American region.

Revelation Online

Revelation Online

Developed by Chinese tech titan NetEase and published by My.com, the Russian-owned entertainment company behind Skyforge, Revelation Online is an Asian-themed MMORPG that features massive, flyable, open world, frenetic, action-oriented combat, and a plethora of PvE and PvP options to keep the player engaged.

Starting players get to choose from six unique classes and get to fiddle around with their looks using the game's very robust character creator. Combat can be done via traditional tab-targeting, assisted action combat, or a hybrid version of the two. Some classes are best suited for certain combat schemes, so new players should read up before progressing further into the game.

The world of Nuanor, Revelation Online's setting, is breathtaking and features stunning vistas and landscapes. Fortunately for the player, they can explore the entirety of this mostly-seamless world with the game's flight system, which becomes available early on.

Leveling up in the game is quest-centric, with a heavy focus on daily quests and events. Missing out on these daily activities will slow down the player's progression. Upon level-up, players are awarded points which they can freely allocate to character stats that improve their class in different ways. Gearing up involves a lot of dungeon and raid runs on different difficulty settings. Costuming is present in the game, for those interested in further character customization. Gear crafting, as well as non-combat professions, such as Cooking and Fishing, are also part of the features, allowing for players to increase their character's versatility.

Avid "theme-park" MMORPG gamers will find Revelation Online to be a treat when it comes to things to do. PvP is quite robust as well, featuring duels, 3v3 arena battles, battlegrounds, instanced guild wars and persistent castle/territory sieging.

There's a cash shop element in the game, which mostly deals with costuming and convenience items. While paying players will see an advantage by purchasing these conveniences, the gap isn't really insurmountable by their non-paying counterpart. Essentially, it will only take the non-paying gamer a longer time to complete certain game milestones compared to the paying kind. Some gamers might be turned off at that prospect, but that's a common system in most F2P games.

Legacy of Discord

Legacy of Discord

From the publishers of the League of Angels series and Magerealm comes Legacy of Discord: Furious Wings, a 3D isometric dungeon crawler similar in style to Blizzard's Diablo 3.

Players begin their quest for shiny, legendary loot and eternal PvP dominance by selecting one of three available gender-locked classes: the giant-sword-wielding Berserker, the speedy Bladedancer or the spell-chucking Sorceress. Combat is graphically flashy and fairly fast-paced, with a focus on class abilities and combo chaining. Equipment farming and refining are crucial aspects in Legacy of Discord and will determine how far you can go in both PvE and PvP endeavors.

There's the usual PvE fare in the form of storyline quests and boss battle challenges, but these ultimately take a backseat to the game's PvP options, which are basically the game's selling point. PvP can be done in a 1v1 arena, a 5v5 team battle, or a massive scale guild wars setting. Competitive gamers wanting to stick around and participate in higher rungs of PvP must be ready with a substantial cash investment if they want to dominate their foes in the game. Otherwise, the experience going forward will be a long, frustrating uphill battle. Non-paying players beware unless they have a thing for endless grinding and battling against the odds.

Mobile Strike

Mobile Strike

Mobile Strike is a 2D base-building, PvP-centric online strategy game set in a modern war setting. Join forces with General Arnold Schwarzenegger, the game's celebrity endorser and persistent guide NPC, and bomb, blaze, blast your way to victory. The tools at your disposal this time, instead of medieval ballistas and magical spells, will be implements of mass destruction from the real world.

Base building, hero leveling, equipment crafting, and alliance forging are all present in Mobile Strike, as it doesn't shy away from the tried-and-tested formula for this game genre. As such, veterans from other online strategy titles will find themselves at home with the game's mechanics and underlying systems. Newbies to the genre might get overwhelmed at first with the vast amount of options and menus in the game, but it won't take long for them to adjust to the not-so-steep learning curve.

Like most F2P builder-strategy MMOs, Mobile Strike has pay-to-win elements and caters heavily to the paying gamer. Casual players will be hard-pressed to keep up with serious paying players. It can be done, but it's an uphill battle and will require even more dedication than the average hardcore player.

Vikings: War of Clans

Vikings: War of Clans

Become a powerful Jarl and command your legions of berserkers for honor and glory in Vikings: War of Clans. Set in the tumultuous period when Viking kingdoms fought for dominance in the North, Vikings: War of Clans is primarily a player-versus-player empire-building online game. Band together with fellow warriors and join an ever-dynamic world of epic battles and large-scale warfare.

Vikings: War of Clans comes from Plarium, the seasoned strategy game devs behind Sparta: War of Empires and Stormfall: Age of War, so it's as polished as strategy games get. The usual empire-builder strategy features are present in this game. Jarls get to build structures, train troops, invest in research, and engage in specializations - all for the glory of their kingdom. There's also a hero system in tandem with equipment crafting mechanics. As always, player-run alliances are the cornerstone feature in games like this, and any newbie Jarl would do well to join an established alliance if they want to progress meaningfully in the game.

Like in most F2P empire-builder games out there, players must be ready to sink in some cash if they want to be competitive in Vikings: War of Clans. The way these online games are designed, non-paying players will always be at a significant disadvantage compared to their paying counterparts. Of course, players can opt to be casual in the game and play without spending a single cent. Just be warned that it won't be a pleasant experience, especially when battling against the hardcore, paying variety of Jarl.

Game of War: Fire Age

Game of War: Fire Age

Game of War: Fire Age is a massively multiplayer mobile 2D game cut in the same cloth as Clash of Clans and Vikings: War of Clans. It's a base-building, empire-builder strategy game that's solely tilted to cooperative PvP. A mythical ancient Greece is the setting for this game, so expect similarly themed structures, units, and heroes from the period.

The usual hallmarks of empire-builder games are present in Game of War: Fire Age. Players build structures, train troops, and wage wars against neighboring players. There's a hero customization system, equipment crafting mechanics and of course, an alliance system that facilitates massive team versus team warfare. War-loving gamers will feel right at home in this game.

Like most free-to-play empire strategy titles, Game of War: Fire Age is a "love it or hate it" affair. It will ultimately require players to spend some cash to be truly competitive in the game. The game's alliance and PvP-centric gameplay might not appeal to solo and casual players, but strategy and war-freaks will enjoy what the game has to offer - provided they're willing to invest some moolah in it.

ArcheAge

ArcheAge

Enter the medieval world of Erenor, a land of peerless wonder and bountiful resources. Erenor is also a land torn by constant strife and conflict. The western continent of Nuia constantly wages war with the eastern continent of Haranya. While the mortal races waste their time in fighting for supremacy, ancient evils are awakening. Can the peoples of Erenor unite in time to defend their world from the coming onslaught?

ArcheAge is a "sandpark" (a hybrid of "sandbox" and "theme park") MMORPG developed by XL Games and published internationally by Trion Worlds. Featuring a zoneless world with three major continents and traversable seas in between, ArcheAge is a massive game that can be directly shaped by its players.

Crafting in ArcheAge is extensive. Players can craft equipment, cook food, build housing and furniture, farm crops, herd animals, and even design seafaring vehicles. The housing system allows players to place their buildings in certain zones as a persistent part of the world. Established guilds can claim vast tracts of land and build castles on them. These castles can be attacked and conquered by opposing guilds during siege events.

ArcheAge also boasts a classless system where players train skill sets that give them abilities. There are only ten skill sets available, and each character can only specialize in three at a time. Players can switch between specializations for a cost.

Combat in the game is mostly traditional MMORPG fare, with the addition of naval warfare. Players can engage in ship-to-ship combat, sea-to-land skirmish, or even battle sea monsters. The usual PvE options are present in the game. PvP offerings range from the built-in faction warfare to zone and event restricted PvP battles.

Summing it up, ArcheAge is a well-refined game with plenty of PvE and PvP content to offer. Aesthetically, the game does not disappoint as well. Its extensive crafting system and persistent sandbox elements are good reasons to play the game. If you're a fan of these game systems, then you should definitely give ArcheAge a spin.

Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2 is ArenaNet and NCSoft's sequel MMORPG to 2005's highly acclaimed Guild Wars online game. Set in the world of Tyria, a land of fantastical creatures and mysterious magicks, Guild Wars 2 takes place 250 years after the first installment, in a tumultuous period when the Elder Dragons have begun their reawakening. Together with the members of Destiny's Edge, a group of powerful adventurers, the player must face the incoming onslaught of the Elder Dragons and their hordes, and save Tyria from the brink of destruction.

Guild Wars 2 features five playable races and nine distinct classes (professions) at character creation. There are no dedicated healer professions in the game, so players are encouraged to mix their party compositions to find the most suitable setup for an encounter.

Combat in Guild Wars 2 is fast-paced, with an action-oriented slant. Players can evade attacks using a built-in dodge mechanic. Skills are profession-based and weapon-specific, though, players can switch to an alternate weapon during combat to access a different skill set. Players only have a limited number of skill slots, which is a refreshing change from the usual "skill pianos" (multiple hotkey bars) common in full-blown MMORPGs.

PvE content is story-driven, with the player going through the story in their own unique way via the "Personal Story" system. Zones have timed "Dynamic Events" where players cooperate to complete specific objectives for rewards. World bosses spawn in certain maps as well, rewarding players with loot for a successful battle.

Guild Wars 2's PvP comes in two forms - Structured PvP and World VS World. Structured PvP has different match types and gives participants equal access to top level equipment and skills to even the playing field. World VS World is an ongoing battle between three game servers that takes place in one massive battleground with multiple objectives.

Overall, you can't go wrong in choosing to play Guild Wars 2. It's free to play (but you'll have to shell out cash to access the latest expansion content), has meaningful, story-driven PvE content and highly competitive PvP modes. It's very polished in all aspects and has a stable community of players in its following. Don't hesitate to give it a try if you're looking for a quality MMORPG that's worthy of your time and money.

Felspire

Felspire

The world of Eremos is one of endless strife and conquest. The Felspire looms at the center of this ravaged land, acting as a gateway to the demonic underworld. Many wars have been waged over this mysterious tower, and to this day, demons still emerge from its labyrinthine catacombs. It is now up to brave adventurers like you to solve the mysteries of the Felspire and finally end the demonic invasion once and for all.

37Games's Felspire looks and plays like the typical, haphazardly-developed browser game cluttering the Internet nowadays. Standard browser game features like automated pathing and combat are present, along with the complementary cluttered user interface. Felspire stands apart from the bunch somewhat by featuring an "automated character progression system" that eliminates the usual grinding. After reaching a certain point in the game, players will be able to turn on the "AFK Helper" feature that will complete quests for the player whenever they're inactive. With grinding out of the way, players will have more time to devote to the game's many co-op dungeons and various PvP/GvG offerings. Competitive PvP will likely require a substantial cash investment if the player wants to participate at the highest tiers.

Aside from the "automated progression system", there's nothing new or unique in Felspire. Generic fantasy, with generic gameplay and progression systems, and generic graphics and music. With the game leaning very heavily on automated gameplay, it makes one wonder: "Am I playing the game, or is the game playing me?"

Skyforge

Skyforge

The world of Aelion is under siege by otherworldly forces. The planet, unparalleled in beauty and wonder, was once protected by Aeli, a benevolent greater god. His mysterious disappearance has left Aelion vulnerable to incursion from savage alien invaders. Left with no choice, the followers of Aeli, lesser gods and immortals, have banded together to defend their homeland. You are one of those immortals, blessed with incredible powers beyond any mortal being. It is your destiny to protect Aelion and eventually become a god in the process.

Skyforge is an action-oriented, sci-fi 3D MMORPG developed by Mail.ru's Allods Team and Obsidian Entertainment. The game sports a third person camera view and features swift and visceral combat. New players start the game by choosing one of the three starter classes. An additional ten classes can be unlocked based on the player's progression. Players can freely switch between available classes, eliminating the need to make multiple alt characters.

Progression in Skyforge follows a non-traditional route as there are no levels and experience points. Instead, players improve their character and class by advancing through stat and skill increasing "node grids" similar to that of Path of Exile's skill tree and console game Final Fantasy X's Sphere Grid system. Unlocking these nodes requires resources acquired from quests and dungeons. PvP modes – FFA, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Payload Race – also reward resources. Equipment is also a big factor, with the best gear dropping in harder instances and raid encounters. A seasoned immortal eventually gains worshippers and temples in their honor, and these provide stat boosts as well. The combination of these elements is the player's Prestige rating, which determines their potential strength and the content they can access.

All in all, Skyforge is an enjoyable combat-oriented 3D MMORPG with considerable polish and depth. The graphics and music are a big plus as well, though, sometimes optimization issues abound. The game's weekly resource caps can be a major turn-off to hardcore players, though.

Trove

Trove

Trove is a voxel-based sandbox MMORPG released by Trion Worlds, the developers of the popular free-to-play MMORPG RIFT. Trove builds on the Minecraft formula by focusing more on combat, progression, and exploration. Trove also features procedurally-generated worlds, so each zone is unique in layout and content.

There are currently fifteen unique classes available for players to choose during character creation. The selection covers melee and ranged classes, each with their own physical and magical damage dealing abilities. Players can switch between classes (which have individual levels) provided they've unlocked them beforehand.

Trove's gameplay is typical of any level progression-based 3D MMORPG. Players defeat monsters to gain experience, loot, and resources for item crafting and building. Weapon drops have randomized stats and rarity depending on zone difficulty, so players looking to optimize their character will have to spend more time grinding the perfect arsenal. Combat is simple hack-and-slash, and while easy, it can get quite monotonous after a while. PvP combat is available in the form of a battle arena where players can duke it out for fame and rewards.

For creative home builders, the game has a multitude of blocks and doodads that can be used to create the ultimate player fortress. Some of the building materials are only available from the higher difficulty zones, so progressing through content is still crucial to the experience.

Overall, Trove is a pleasant, polished voxel game for those looking for a different spin to the tried-and-tested Minecraft formula. Give it a whirl if you're up for some voxel-based action with the standard conventions of an MMORPG.

Tiny Mighty Heroes Unite

Tiny Mighty Heroes Unite

Tiny Mighty Heroes Unite is a team-based superhero browser game heavily "inspired" by Marvel Comics. By "inspired", I mean familiar looking but ridiculously named superheroes with comical powers and unusually pudgy designs. Early on, you encounter a quest giver called "Furrious", the game's analogue for Beast. Shortly after, you recruit "The Archer", a stumpy Hawkeye clone who fires plungers at his foes and cleans toilets after every victorious battle. Yes, the game is *that* weird, and it becomes even more strange as you progress through content.

At its core, Tiny Mighty is a team building, equipment and item grinding game. Heroes can be improved through a multitude of ways – equipment, direct stat boosts and ability unlocks. Questing and grinding are the usual modes of progression, limited by a stamina bar that replenishes over time. PvP is present in the form of a battle arena where players can skirmish with each other for fame and rewards. Though combat is automated, players can use hero abilities to turn the tide of battle in their favor.

Aside from its bizarre humor, there's nothing fresh or unique in Tiny Mighty Heroes Unite. Compared to other browser titles, it's below average in graphical and aural presentation. The game is also poorly localized, with occasional translation errors popping up here and there. Players looking for a polished superhero browser game might want to skip this one and move on to the next.

Pirate Crusaders

Pirate Crusaders

Crimson Games's Pirate Crusaders is a strategic, fleet building, naval combat browser game set in a medieval fantasy world. Players build and upgrade ships, manage fleets, and even get to occupy an island stronghold.

Combat in Pirate Crusaders is tactical and turn-based. Players initiate skirmishes on a grid-based battlefield with the occasional obstacles. Captains can be trained in various skills that can be used to turn the tide of battle. PvE is the main mode of progression, and players can challenge the harder content by teaming up.

As the game features two-sided factional PvP, players are given the choice to ally with the pirates or with the navy early on. Siding with a faction allows the player to engage in territorial battles with the opposite side. Other PvP modes, such as arena matches, are available as well.

The game's interface is as cluttered as the typical Chinese-developed browser game. Clunky English dialogue and translation errors abound as well. Graphics are dated, and eerily similar to the old Heroes of Might and Magic single player games. The music is a plus, at least, when compared to other browser games out there.

No doubt, Pirate Crusaders's main attraction is its large-scale, factional PvP warfare. If you're into that kind of gameplay, then this is the pirate ship game for you. Otherwise, it's best to sail away to bluer seas.

One Piece 2

One Piece 2

Follow the exploits of Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates in Joygames's One Piece Online 2: Pirate King, their second browser game featuring the popular Japanese manga. Explore the treacherous Grand Line with your very own pirate crew, in search of fame, fortune, and the legendary One Piece.

At its core, One Piece Online 2 is a team-building, character collecting browser game with squad combat. It also looks and plays like every other Chinese-developed browser game out there — complete with a cluttered interface, auto-pathing, endless quests and an overwhelming array of bells and whistles. A slowly regenerating stamina bar limits your activities per session, which can be a good or bad thing depending on the player's gaming habits. Combat is turn-based, with a focus on strategic placement of party members and team synergy. Certain skills can be used during battle, so learning when to use them is essential to victory as well. As with most browser games of this caliber, PvP is a central part of the gameplay, so players are more likely to progress towards that endgame. Be prepared to spend cash if you want to participate at the higher tiers of the PvP ladder, though.

Overall, One Piece 2: Pirate King is a mostly generic, "same old" browser game painted in the hue of the popular franchise. Fans of the series might find appeal in collecting their favorite characters, forming their "dream" pirate crews, and defeating other players with them. Non-fans, however, might want to steer clear of these waters.

World of Warships

World of Warships

Relive the legendary naval battles of World War II in Wargaming's action-packed World of Warships. Command the era's most destructive implement of warfare – the naval warship – and lead your team to domination. As with Wargaming's earlier historical combat MMO World of Tanks, World of Warships features tier-ranked vehicle and technology systems. The game has four ship classes to choose from. Destroyers are the smallest ships and function as stealthy scouts and torpedo-launching ambushers. Cruisers are versatile ships, capable of providing reliable shelling and anti-air defense. Battleships are slow, heavily armored juggernauts that can deal massive damage at the cost of low accuracy and lengthy reloads. Aircraft Carriers are unique in that they send out airplanes that can scout quickly, engage enemy fighters, and harass ships with bombs and torpedoes. Customization is available for all ships in the form of different equipment modules. Ship captains can also be trained in a variety of skills to increase the performance of their commandeering. World of Warships's gameplay is very similar to Wargaming's other MMO offerings. Teams start at opposite ends of a sortie map and scout their way to enemy contact. Afterwards, bombardment commences. Coordinated teamwork is essential in achieving victory, as going "Rambo into the fray" will most likely result in getting sunk quickly. Overall, World of Warships is a solid, graphically-pleasing, historical naval combat MMO with the same, tried-and-tested depth and polish as you would expect of the Wargaming devs. Give it a shot if you're hankering for some good, old-fashioned naval warfare.

Magerealm

Magerealm

The Holy City has fallen into the hands of the Demon Overlord and his infernal army. You (and everyone else in the game) are the last of the realm's protectors, and it is your destined task to save the world from the brink of total destruction.

Magerealm: Rise of Chaos is an action-oriented, browser fantasy MMORPG mostly cut in the same fashion as others. If you're familiar with games from R2Games (League of Angels, Wartune, Monkey King Online), you'll feel right at home in Magerealm. The gameplay and core mechanics are virtually the same, aside from a few modifications here and there. The user interface is as clunky and cluttered as well.

Players start off by choosing a class — out of three unique types — and then it's off to the mostly-automated newbie tutorial. Like in most browser games, completing each step rewards the player with fancy equipment and resources. That's basically the gist of the gameplay — auto-pathing your way to questing and grinding for loot and levels. PvP is a major part of the game, so most (if not all) players band together to complete content and events for the sake of server domination. Of course, if you really want to play at a competitive level, be prepared to shell out some real world cash, as this is *that* kind of F2P game.

Overall, Magerealm is no doubt a cookie-cutter browser game, albeit with better graphics and effects than most. It has a sizable following, though, so if you're an avid player of this genre of online game, then don't hesitate to give it a try.

Imperia Online

Imperia Online

Fancy yourself a great emperor of a thriving civilization? Or maybe a pillaging warlord, leading your legions to glorious battles? Then Imperia Online is right up your alley.

Imperia Online is a browser-based, strategic empire builder MMO set in the Medieval period. You are the ruler of a small province, tasked to develop its economic and military might. Practically, like in most empire building games, that means improving your province's infrastructure over time, all for the sake of building up your military. To fully participate in global warfare and politics, the game encourages you to join player-run alliances.

The gameplay doesn't stray much from the usual formula of online empire builder games, so if you're a veteran of that genre, Imperia Online won't be too much of an unfamiliar territory to cover. For the newbie, the lengthy tutorial does a thorough job of introducing the core gameplay systems. Graphically, there's not much to look at, but the visuals definitely have a medieval atmosphere to them. The interface can get overwhelming for a new player, though.

Casual players will find little use for the game's cash shop offerings, but hardcore gamers will definitely need to invest some money if they want to play at a competitive level. That has always been the case for games like this.

As far as modern MMOs are concerned, Imperia Online isn't a ground-breaking or stand-out game. It's a decently polished empire builder, though, and it's still going strong 10 years after it launched.

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.

Summoner's Legion

Summoner's Legion

Summoners Legion is a trading card MMO from R2Games. Its set on a fantasy world that houses a number of creatures from different times and game universes.

Players choose from four classes that differ in their special abilitydepending on their class, players can always heal, deal damage or buff others. The combat takes place in one to three lanes and combines disparate card types and ability cards, making up a deck of 30. The single player campaign is fairly easy, but co-op and PvP is where the real fun is at. Try to find rare cards in dungeons and try to guess your enemys next move in PvP. Although games are blazing fast (about five minutes against easy opponents), theyre also quite tactical and require a lot of educated guesswork plus a bit of luck. Building a good all-round deck can be nothing short of a Herculean labor, but the mechanics are fairly easy to grasp. Theres a crafting system that boosts the abilities of your cards, plus you can also craft new ones.

Summoners Legion is a treat in all aspectsvisually, gameplay-wise and in terms of longevity too. Do note that the stamina system keeps you from playing as much as you could, and on the off chance you get addicted the game can swallow up a lot of money.

Kingdom Rift

Kingdom Rift

Kingdom Rift is a browser-based MMORPG from R2Games. It features a vivid and beautiful fantasy world thats dulled by autocombat and a lack of real challenge.

As it is with R2 titles, the first thing to ask is whether theres something unique to find here. As you reach level 20 (in ten minutes or so), you start to see that there isnt, but it isnt all bad either. Even though stuff is being thrown at the player for no good reasonyou acquire a mount in, like, three minutesand you can run around clicking Accept and Hand in and watch your character level up just like that, Kingdom Rift is also beautiful and atmospheric. Theres also some sense of progress as players play through the story in seven stages. Strategy isnt that important as combat can be computer-controlled, plus its decided mostly by battle rating, which for all practical purposes replaces a characters stats.

Kingdom Rift is better than the average R2 game. Whether it makes it fun enough to play, thats up for debate. You should, however, at least take a look at it if you liked Diablo and like watching your character grow, even if you don't play much of a role in the process.

Players specialize in Genjutsu, Ninjutsu, or Taijutsu fighting styles/philosophies and set off to explore the world, battling the forces of the Nine-tailed Demon Fox that have besieged the village. Even though there�s limited customization at start, as players branch out a whole new world of possibilities opens up, like combat role customization and tactics. The turn-based combat might be a bore, but strategy plays a huge role in Ultimate Ninja even if not obviously so at the start. PvP opens quite late and its main use is testing character and equipment builds as well as strategies. An elaborate pet system, coupled with team building and huge stores of equipment and quests add to the longevity of this game. Players will enjoy the simple interface, the appropriate music and especially the warm, colorful graphics.

Those who love Naruto will definitely find this game worth their while, and even skeptical players can be, in time, converted into believers as after a slow start to the story, the peaceful, intriguing world coalesces into an experience that�s rare to be found in this genre.

One Piece

One Piece

One Piece is a browser-based 2.5D MMORPG, based on the popular anime series.

Players start with one of the three classesSniper, Swordsman and Devil Fruit Userwhich cannot be customized. The story unfolds in English so broken its funny and tentatively weaves together episodes from the show. The combat takes place in instances and has tower defense elementsplayers safeguard a flag or try to destroy that of their enemy in PvP. Fights are player-controlled, though if they dont fight the AI will do so instead. Those who watch One Piece will be delighted by the presentationvisuals and sound are top-notch herebut positively appalled by the lack of a coherent story. Some glitches are present, too, like non-responsive NPCs and UI problems. The game is also pretty greedy from the get go, showering players with countless offers of questionable value.

Even though stunning graphically, with fun music and fights that are above the usual caliber of such games, One Piece keeps begging for money all the time, but doesnt have much, in terms of story and immersion, to offer for it.

Mythborne

Mythborne

Mythborne is a 2.5D MMORPG game from R2Games, set on a fantasy world loosely based on Greek mythology.

Even though R2 are notorious for copying their own (and others) games, this one has more classesfive in total, and all have their role in combatas well as player-controllable turn based combat, and thats definitely a good thing. Whats very peculiar is that players start off with a mount, and hit stats are in the thousands at the very beginning. Graphics-wise, Mythborne does look pretty cool, but the screen is cluttered and the motion looks choppy. The story itself unfolds like it would in a single-player game, so even though the game does offer a lot of social opportunities theres not much reason to take them.

Overall, Mythborne offers more than a similar, generic title would, but its debatable whether thats enough to actually play it. Although the story has some potential, it gets interesting only later on when the player has probably skipped most of it.
