Rail Nation

Rail Nation

Rail Nation (RN) is a browser-based railroad simulator by Travian. Players lay down tracks, buy new trains, research technologies and associate with other players in order to be a part of the best-travelled city in the world.

RN looks nice, cartoony and professional, with a friendly tutorial guiding you through the basics of the game. Players then compete in a timed game world, trying to make their city flourish in order to get to the end game where 10 top cities compete for the top spot. RTS elements come as a city view that houses buildings for researching new engines and producing tracks. Planning the best route can be frustrating at times, but maneuvering the perfect one for your engines to take does bring a sort of a fuzzy warmness to one’s tummy.

RN is perfect if you have a knack for these sorts of games. On the flip side, though, the tutorial doesn't cover enough ground for newbies, plus competitive players will find the game rather cash hungry in higher levels of play. Other than that, RN is a solid & professional game that’s ‘different’ just enough to make it stick.

Rappelz

Rappelz

Rappelz is a fantasy-themed MMORPG. The game has a vast class system; players can choose from three classes – mage, warrior, and archer – three jobs and two “sub-jobs” for each job. The graphics are okay, but landscapes and cities lack detail. Rappelz has a developed pet system with pet skills and transformations. The combat is nice, and it gets more interesting as the character’s level increases. The quests, however, are dull from the very beginning, and steer towards grinding rather than advancing the story at all. Rappelz is very PvP-centric and that’s the most challenging aspect of the game; players can attack other players even from their own faction, and things become rather intense on PvP servers where players can sometimes be looted upon death.

Realms Online

Realms Online

AKA Regnum Online, Realms Online is a fantasy themed MMORPG. Choose your hero from three realms that battle each other tirelessly. Six classes and nine races to choose from; classes are race-dependent. A unique aspect of the game, Realm vs. Realm play, takes place in the “war zone” of the map where realms engage in war games, trying to capture their foes’ forts and castles to get bonuses for their realms or corrupt others for a time. Well-written lore and a massive game world. The graphics are rather outdated however, with landscapes often lacking in detail. The start seems slow, but the pace picks up on levels past 10, once you’re ready for PvP and have gotten used to the somewhat complex combat.

Red Eclipse

Red Eclipse

Open source first person shooter with all the latest bells and whistles. The agile gameplay is fun, allowing you to use walls to run on and kick off from or perform double jumps or jump off high perches. Cooperatively build maps online with other players. As it is built from the Cube engine (but entirely redone from the ground up), it allows for smooth game play on lower end machines and lower bandwidth. Lots and lots of gore. Team members and opposing forces are easily identified (if a little bland). Many features like cross-hair radar and impulse jumping have been copied and revamped from other games, hopefully augmenting familiar gameplay. I for one found the cross-hair radar a bit difficult to get used to at first, but it does help to stay focused on targeting and movement rather than camping -- which is where the game truly shines. One other feature that I have to mention is the auditory feedback for landed shots. As an opponent's health decreases, each successive shot landed gives a "pinging" sound increasing in pitch. Very handy, and unique to Red Eclipse as far as I've seen.

Red Fire

Red Fire

Red Fire is a strategy MMO with RPG elements, set during the Third World War where three factions, not unlike those of Command & Conquer, struggle for power. The graphics are also reminiscent of earlier C&C titles. The gameplay is far from perfect; besides that there are clumsy combat animations and short, bland campaign missions. There isn’t much to do in Red Fire, either; raiding other players is fun at the beginning, but the pleasure doesn't last. The base setup is interesting – it’s cooldown-based. Besides that, though, there’s nothing particular to note about this game – Red Fire isn’t especially good or bad, it’s just another typical title among many of this type.

Remnant Knights

Remnant Knights

Remnant Knights is an anime-inspired, school-themed MMORPG. Choose from two factions -- Dragon Academy and Owl Academy -- that train knights (players) of six classes. The game has a cool soundtrack (if you don’t hate j-pop) and cute graphics that stay true to the anime genre, just like the story does. The combat is fluid and fun to watch. Remnant Knights has everything the usual MMORPG has – PvP, guilds, pets, etc., – but what’s fresh is that players can create ‘charity’ events that add additional money drops to other players’ loot. The game’s skill system is well-developed and new skills add fun even to the end-game.

Rich$tate

Rich$tate

Richstate is an online business simulator with some RPG elements. In this game you can start your business in five different industries, and each industry has 10 sorts of stores in it. Richstate isn’t a hard business simulator, yet you’ll probably have difficulty with hiring the right employees as you’ll have to invest R$D (the game’s currency) for recruitment. The game’s most interesting aspect is the car-racing system – we all know that businessmen always drive fast cars – which adds PvP and PvE to the game, as users can gain experience fighting against ‘cars on the loose’, compete with other players, and purchase upgrades for their cars. Other notable strong points are graphics and the awesome car part system. Although the game isn’t hard at the first glance, it can serve as prime entertainment for more than an evening or two.

Rift

Rift

A medieval fantasy-themed MMORPG, set in the mystical world of Telara. Players can choose from six races, 4 classes, and a whopping 32 sub-classes to customize their characters to the max. Many storyline-connected events happen in RIFT – players can defend cities from invasion, participate in guild quests, or simply explore the beautifully designed game world. The game is full of PvP instances and arenas, and, to top it off, slaying your enemies rewards you with much more than mere ‘honor’. RIFT is very complete for a new online game (especially the class and skill system), and, although not aspiring to be something ground breaking, the game offers an experience that rivals most similar games out there.

Rise of Mythos

Rise of Mythos

Rise of Mythos (RoM) is a fantasy MMO trading card game. It has a total of four classes – mage, ranger, warrior and priest – and boasts a friendly user interface with cartoony graphics. The tutorial helpfully and gradually introduces the four-lane, turn-based combat, which is surely the best thing about RoM, ND features seven card types of different elements along with hero items and card desk assembly. Two maps are available to the player: the story map and the city map. The story map is for leveling up and exploring while the city map hosts PvP and the card auction house. The numerous social features in this game are helpful in making friends. An extra degree of complexity is added with strategy-game-like upgrades to your town hall and buildings. Of course, this all comes with a price—it’s free to play, but scaling the heights is next to impossible without paying.

Royal Quest

Royal Quest

Royal Quest is a fantasy-themed MMORPG similar to Ragnarok Online. It’s developed by the people behind Space Rangers and King's Bounty.

Players set off on a colorful adventure in the world of Aura, choosing from four classes with two sub-classes each, selected when the player reaches level 20. The game gets quite challenging at later levels, to the point where a single monster can easily take the player out. To counter that, there’s a cool guild system where guilds level up as well, bestowing various bonuses on their members. There’s also open-world PvP where you get some of the slain enemy’s loot. Sideline activities like herb gathering, crafting and the likes are abundant, and there are fun PvP modes like castle sieging to be found in Royal Quest. The combat strongly echoes that of Ragnarok Online, and that’s of course both a good and a bad thing, depending on whether you enjoyed that game.

Royal Quest definitely has many good things going for it: the cash shop seems fair; the actual world is beautiful even if the mobs don’t stand out as particularly unique, and the social features are implemented with a degree of originality. However, it does tend to get tedious in later levels, and for the game having ‘quest’ in its name, the quests are surprisingly uninspired. Better team up with someone or prepare to be bored, sooner or later.

Rumble Fighter offers competitive combat for all players, as the ranking system helps finding enemies of your skill level. There are numerous general and class-locked fighting styles to choose from. There are nine game modes (some are quite unique to this game) which test the player’s ability to cope with new situations, as well as trickjumps which become important on higher levels of play. Characters can transform during the game, effectively putting an end to rock-paper-scissors combat. If you fancy fighting games, you’ll like Rumble Fighter as the game offers a fresh experience with every new character.

Runes Of Magic

Runes Of Magic

Runes of Magic is a MMORPG, set in a fantasy world, graphically similar to that of WoW. There are eight classes and two races – elves and humans – to choose from, and each character can have a sub-class at lvl 10. The sub-class has to be leveled up separately. Quests are plentiful and intertwine with the story very well – players will almost never have to simply kill 20 desert rats for a quest, because most of the quests are connected with the story. There’s a peculiar ‘rune system’ that rewards players with stats when runes are collected. PvP play is very developed in Runes of Magic, both in instances and open-world, with players sometimes dropping items when slain by another player.

Rusty Hearts

Rusty Hearts

Rusty Hearts is an anime-inspired hack and slash MMORPG. There are four classes, along with avatars, which are mere replicas of the opposite sex. The graphics are stylish and blend nicely with players and their actions. The gameplay is fun at first, but can become repetitive, especially in PvE. The game is instance-based, so dungeons and arenas are plentiful. So are social features like character rooms, group quests and guilds. PvP is a real treat with solo modes such as deathmatch, survivor, and team tag for cooperative PvP. The PvP environment also features a ladder system for the competitive-minded. Although the game can become repetitive, it is playable at the very least, and, if you don’t play Rusty Hearts as a single-player game, it can actually be quite rewarding.
