Drakensang

Drakensang

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.

Planet Arkadia

Planet Arkadia

Planet Arkadia is the fourth planet of the Entropia Universe, an MMORPG with a cash-based economy. There are four more planets in the Entropia Universe, all connected with space travel. This planet is centered on treasure hunting – mining finds worth over $1000 are not unheard of. Planet Arkadia has a rich history and many dangerous zones populated by the first inhabitants, the Oratan, who definitely aren’t well-disposed toward human colonists. The game has a steep learning curve and leveling is skill-based like in Elder Scrolls. The Entropia Universe can be discouraging for newcomers, especially non-paying ones. However, the game’s social features, the vast and beautiful world, the great detail and community spirit make playing Planet Arkadia a remarkable experience – if you’re prepared to invest quite some time (and perhaps a bit of money) in it.

Planet Calypso

Planet Calypso

Planet Calypso is the oldest planet of the Entropia Universe, an MMORPG with a cash-based economy. There are four more planets in the Entropia Universe, all connected with space travel. Players progress through the game by trying to increase their moneymaking efficiency. The game has a steep learning curve. Leveling is skill-based and slow. Activities for making money range from sweat gathering to crafting, mining and plastic surgery � you name it. Quests have been implemented to give players a sense of having a goal in the game, but the game lacks any story-related immersion whatsoever (this is counterbalanced with the elaborate social system). The fact that the game�s economy is pegged to real-life currency has its ups and downs: you have to pay up if you don�t want to gather sweat until you can afford beginning hunting gear. Planet Calypso should be avoided by people prone to gambling.

Fantage

Fantage

A side-scrolling browser-based virtual world for tweens using the safest chat features available. You play a cute anime character in a vibrant game world. Hover around on skateboard as you explore, accept missions for medals and stars you can use to buy clothes and furnishings for your house, and play mini games to win gems which can be exchanged for rare items. You can own a pet, but it doesn’t work like it would in an RPG where the pet is a cooperative companion. When you use the pet, you in fact are the pet for that duration of gameplay. The game is often compared to Club Penguin for its target audience, safety features, and membership options. There is ample content without shelling out real-world money. Premium membership costs $5.99 a month and starts you off with a thousand stars.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic is an MMORPG developed by BioWare. It’s free to play, but numerous non-subscriber restrictions strongly encourage purchasing a subscription. The game is well-developed, with endless variety provided by the eight classes (four for the Republic, four for the Empire) and the vast, crowded game world. SW: The Old Republic features impressive cinematics, voice acting and an immersive storyline – hundreds of hours of fun while leveling up. Other things one expects from an MMO are found here as well – pets, gear hunting, dungeons (‘flashpoints’), etc. Gameplay is okay in PvE, although you will find yourself clicking the attack key for hours. PvP rocks though. There’s a very unique game mode called Huttball where players compete in a sick, acid-pit-laden interpretation of American football. End-game content still leaves much to be desired, but things have gone noticeably better since release.

Total Domination

Total Domination

Total Domination is an isometric sci-fi MMORTS, played in the browser. It’s similar to Travian and many of the standard MMORTS tropes are presented here in an unoriginal way, such as building an army, gathering resources, research, etc., though the technology trees are perhaps a bit better thought out than the usual. On the flip side, developers have obviously invested in graphics and other atmospherics, such as voice acting. Total Domination has lots of social features; you gain advantage either by bugging your friends or buying extras. Full-screen support may be the most original feature of this game. If you are simply looking for a clear-cut (not to say cookie-cutter) MMORTS which isn’t done lazily, Total Domination might just do the trick.

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.

Ghost Recon Online

Ghost Recon Online

Ghost Recon Online (GRO) is an MMO tactical shooter developed by Ubisoft. It features three classes – Assault, Recon and Specialist -- that are defined by their game-changing abilities. There currently aren’t that many maps available, but the game is updated regularly and the graphics are nice if a bit outdated. The gameplay is slow, tactical and immensely fun with short bursts of intense action in the two available game modes. GRO is very much a team game, and lone wolfs are not only ineffective, but can jeopardize the success of the whole team. Ubisoft can sometimes disappoint with their interpretation of the free-to-play model, but that’s not the case here. Yes, grenades can only be bought for credits, but one can acquire them quite easily, plus weapon purchases are permanent.

Wizard 101

Wizard 101

Wizard 101 is a colorful MMORPG designed for kids. There are seven classes which are actually different branches of magic the new wizard can choose from -- Fire, Ice, Storm, Myth, Life, Death, and Balance. The game world is humorous and filled with witty quests. Wizard 101 features parent accounts that allow parents to control their children�s accounts; for example, parents can disable incoming messages for their child's account. The combat is card-based and requires a lot of strategy as it�s important to get a well-balanced card deck. Altogether, Wizard 101 offers a great experience even for gaming veterans, but the paid features offer too much content for �pure Free2Play� to be viable. The game�s a great gift if your kids fancy Harry Potter.

WarFrame

WarFrame

Warframe is a 3rd person shooter MMO with RPG elements. Become a space ninja by donning a titular Warframe suit. Shoot the big guns, walk the walls, and slide towards the enemy on your knees in order to slash him in half with a katana.

The story takes place in the solar system and, even if it�s not a very important part of the game, it presents a solid mix of aliens, zombies and humanoids. Warframes are, as it was said, ninja suits. Each of these has special abilities that define the wearer�s combat role. Warframe sports huge computer-generated levels that are best played through in co-op. Players can craft items by purchasing blueprints and finding their components, or alternatively buy the weapons and warframes for hard cash.

You should probably try Warframe. Despite that many condemn the slow pace of acquiring new gear (as well as its exorbitant pricing), the gameplay more than makes up for it. There�s just something strangely addictive and adrenaline-pumping in this game, even if it can be unappealing on paper.

Sparta: War of Empires

Sparta: War of Empires

Sparta: War of Empires (SWE) is a browser-based MMO strategy set in 5th century BC, Greece. It features a classic gameplay enhanced by a great production—visuals, voicing, and music are top-notch here.

Sparta: War of Empires starts with players establishing a polis of their own and setting off to populate their town, recruiting soldiers and neutralizing the imminent Persian threat. Even though not aiming to represent history accurately, the setting is quite well realized—really, who cares if in SWE there are Persian settlements in mainland Greece, even though there weren’t any historically. Other than that, the research system is replaced by treaties with other cities; alliances are encouraged as there is in-faction war taking place against other players; trade can be profitable in the game as well. Combat is, as in most games of this type, entirely textual.

Overall, there’s definitely nothing unique here, except perhaps for the setting. This doesn’t take away from the fact that it is definitely a well-polished title, but it would be great to see something new for a change.

League of Angels

League of Angels

League of Angels (LoA) is a browser-based fantasy MMORPG with turn-based combat and ridiculously beautiful artwork.

Players choose from one of two classes and walk about to get to know the game�s mechanics and the eclectic lore of the League of Angels world, helping angels regain their former glory by setting them free from the dark forces that haunt them. The freed angels become valuable battle companions. There�s an abundance of things to do (crafting, quests, dungeons and PvP), and although the combat cannot be controlled in the battlefield, a good formation can beat a stronger opponent. At later levels, however, players may find that they cannot do much daily besides two or three quests, all due to an annoying stamina system. For what it�s worth, LoA also sports detestable amounts of fan service.

On the one hand, LoA plays just like Wartune and similar titles, the likes of which have sprung up like mushrooms after heavy rainfall; on the other, it has some interesting features like the boss board games. Plus the PvP is quite exciting, as are the graphics. LoA might very well prove to be a disappointment, but it does have its strong points.

Knight's Fable

Knight's Fable

Knight’s Fable is a browser-based MMORPG set in an anime-inspired fantasy world. It features a rich game world and a rather casual gameplay.

The game features four classes, two for each sex, but the character can be changed later on while keeping the stats. Knight’s Fable requires the player to click for quests and skill upgrades (as well as the various side activities like fishing, clearing dungeons, and escorting cargo), but the rest of the game happens automatically. Most of the player’s success is based on the Battle Rating, gained by leveling up or finding/enchanting equipment. The story, once it eases out of the numerous damsel-in-distress scenarios, actually captivates and is light enough not to overwhelm. Of course social features like pets, parties and the likes are featured here as well.

Even though one might deem Knight’s Fable to be a needless addition to a vast array of similar games, it’s actually better than most of the pack. The story is decent, the game doesn’t push you to buy anything, and last but not least there’s just an abundance of things to do.

StormFall: Age of War

StormFall: Age of War

StormFall: Age of War is a browser-based strategy MMO similar to Travian. Players enter the war-stricken world of Darkshine and perpetuate the chaos by waging war against other players.

StormFall has the player start in an empty, barren field and fill up the city with buildings. Players are guided by quests that introduce the game’s mechanics; the quests are presented by a rather witty, well-voiced character, and players are given an abundance of the game’s premium currency, Sapphires, for completing them. The usual elements—researching new technologies and unit types, as well as fighting other players in abstract, non-controllable battles—of such strategy games are found in abundance here as well. The premium currency doesn’t mess with StormFall’s flow: many premium items are level-locked so no one can get too far ahead just by paying; furthermore, Sapphires can be acquired by subscribing to useful services like Netflix.

StormFall doesn’t seem to quite hit the mark in terms of its visual presentation, and the music integration is frankly bizarre as soundtracks change as you go from one menu to the next, but still there’s good reason to believe that many will enjoy this already quite popular strategy game.

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 classes—Sniper, Swordsman and ‘Devil Fruit User’—which cannot be customized. The story unfolds in English so broken it’s funny and tentatively weaves together episodes from the show. The combat takes place in instances and has tower defense elements—players safeguard a flag or try to destroy that of their enemy in PvP. Fights are player-controlled, though if they don’t fight the AI will do so instead. Those who watch One Piece will be delighted by the presentation—visuals and sound are top-notch here—but 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 doesn’t have much, in terms of story and immersion, to offer for it.

AdventureQuest Worlds

AdventureQuest Worlds

2d scrolling MMORPG. Unlike most other massively multiplayer role playing games, this game was developed entirely in Adobe Flash -- by the same team who developed the first AdventureQuest single-player RPG. This is not a sequel but an entirely different game with the same (and better) attention to storyline and quests yet in a persistent game world with real time interaction. Humorous and rewarding gameplay. Four classes to choose from the ability to multi-class to make things more interesting.

Might and Magic Heroes Online

Might and Magic Heroes Online

Might and Magic Heroes Online (MMHO) is a 2.5D MMORPG/Strategy played in the browser. It’s developed by Ubisoft and features the original HOMM world of Ashan.

MMHO has the player choose between two classes of two factions (so there are four classes altogether) and battle it out with NPC and player opponents in turn-based battles that demand quite some skill. Players have a hero and some basic units to start with and later on get a town for producing new types of units. Players progress fairly linearly, with quests introducing them to the various parts of the game. The greatly detailed world looks stunning and atmospheric, with some random loot lying around as well; however, the detail sometimes takes its toll on the UI, which responds slowly at times.

MMHO is definitely a title worth trying; especially so if the desktop Heroes of Might & Magic games saw you ladder with your friends for weeks on end. The cash shop seems quite democratic as well, as you can really do without it if you’re not dead set to reach the top ranks on your server. Other than the lack of player customization and the clunky UI, there’s surprisingly little bad that can be said about this game.

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.

Nosgoth

Nosgoth

Nosgoth is a 3rd person team-based PvP game set in the dark, eponymous world known from the famous games of the Legacy of Kain series, though the lore of the two is connected quite tentatively.

Nosgoth revolves around vampires battling humans and vice versa. There are two game modes—deathmatch and point capture—and both are intense and exciting in terms of gameplay. Five classes for each race promise quite a lot of variety, and there are new weapons in the shop too. Vampires are melee fighters, whilst humans fight with ranged weapons. One vampire class can fly and all of them can climb the walls. Human gameplay is much more strategic and co-op oriented. Visuals are nothing short of stunning, and Nosgoth is optimized to run well on any decent machine.

Nosgoth is both easy to get into and intricate enough to have players log hundreds of hours still finding something new in each session. Even though balancing and matchmaking issues exist—and of course vampires are more fun to play—Nosgoth serves a thrilling adventure that’s definitely worth sinking your claws into.

Pirate Storm

Pirate Storm

Pirate Storm is a pirate MMO played in the browser. You start off an aspiring pirate and collect gold coins by sinking other ships or battling sea monsters, with the ultimate goal of upgrading your ship and ruling the high seas. While the graphics of this game are okay for a browser game (and so is the click-intensive yet exciting PvP) there are some areas that need improvement: quests are monotonous, and exploring quickly becomes tiring due to a lack of interesting maps and graphical diversity. Also some of the game mechanics, such as last-hitting for gaining experience, will make even the most experienced players cringe. On the flip side, however, the community is mostly great, and making friends is just the thing that might keep you in this game once the initial excitement fades.

Summoner's Legion

Summoner's Legion

Summoner’s Legion is a trading card MMO from R2Games. It’s 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 ability—depending 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 enemy’s next move in PvP. Although games are blazing fast (about five minutes against easy opponents), they’re 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. There’s a crafting system that boosts the abilities of your cards, plus you can also craft new ones.

Summoner’s Legion is a treat in all aspects—visually, 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.

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.

The Settlers Online

The Settlers Online

The Settlers Online is a strategy MMO set in the Settlers universe. You start with a city inhabited by a few people with barbarians roaming around the borders. As the game unfolds, you realize that there’s a lot to do and a lot to build in order to get out of your own village and into the world. There are more than 70 unique buildings and numerous combat units. Strategy favors mixed armies, and planning the makeup of yours is mandatory. To further complicate matters, there’s an abundance of resource types as well. The developers have slowly but surely added updates, with PvP being on the way. The game backfires on non-paying senior players as construction times get really long in the end game. Social perks, such as buffs lasting 50% longer when cast by another player, motivate players to make friends, and that’s what this game seems to be about.

Big Farm

Big Farm

Big Farm is a casual farming simulator played in the browser. Players start managing a farm and plant fields, sell harvest as well as manage expenses, all to grow their farm.

The gameplay mainly consists of harvesting, planting, reaping and selling produce. From time to time players can construct new buildings such as houses for workers, new fields and mills for making flour. Gold, the premium currency, can be acquired without paying but it’s an arduous task without doing so. New players are guided by quests which award money and experience. The graphics are nice and the quest givers can be quite funny.

Big Farm is a casual title with all that entails. It’s well-written and can be fun if Farmville doesn’t quite hit the mark for you. At higher levels of play, however, Big Farm becomes increasingly greedy as it just requires so much gold to do anything at all.

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.

Kingdom Rift

Kingdom Rift

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

As it is with R2 titles, the first thing to ask is whether there’s something unique to find here. As you reach level 20 (in ten minutes or so), you start to see that there isn’t, but it isn’t all bad either. Even though stuff is being thrown at the player for no good reason—you acquire a mount in, like, three minutes—and 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. There’s also some sense of progress as players play through the story in seven stages. Strategy isn’t that important as combat can be computer-controlled, plus it’s decided mostly by battle rating, which for all practical purposes replaces a character’s stats.

Kingdom Rift is better than the average R2 game. Whether it makes it fun enough to play, that’s 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.

Marvel Heroes

Marvel Heroes

Marvel Heroes is an online action MMORPG aptly set in the Marvel universe. Players start with a second-tier superhero and lead it through labyrinthine levels from an isometric, Diablo-like point of view. Gameplay is solid with exciting combat and nice graphics. Other heroes ‘drop’ from monsters – or you can buy them. The characters appear identical – no matter what equipment you wear, it just doesn’t show. Watching ten Hulks smash a Mole Man goes from sad to depressing in no time. Of course, players can pay to make their character stand out. The game world is huge, but repetitive and with annoying spawns. If you’re not a fan of comic books, Marvel Heroes can be a disappointment. Furthermore, a disappointment that keeps begging for money -- like the drunkard who doesn’t remember that he asked you already, five minutes ago.

Soldiers Inc.

Soldiers Inc.

Soldiers Inc. is a military strategy MMO, played in the browser. It was developed by the same people behind Total Domination, a strikingly similar title.

Soldiers Inc. plays quite like your average strategy MMO. Set in Africa of the turbulent year of 2019, the game has players start off with a square base, build it up, produce units and eventually wage war against other players or NPCs. The soundtrack fits the game perfectly, and the voice acting beats most Facebook titles, as does Mr. Black, the player’s cryptic and slightly menacing advisor. Largely the decision to skip or try this game depends on whether you value these kinds of paraphernalia, because otherwise there’s not much to discuss: it’s all been seen before, and too common to be interesting, at least to the veterans of the genre. Battles proceed as statistics, and are not visual; players form alliances for mutual protection; and so on.

To the credit of the developers, there are bi-monthly events where players can amass premium currency without paying, but overall the game falls into the ‘pay to win’ spectrum of F2P games. Soldiers Inc. is solid overall, but the standards for similar games have risen too much for it to keep up.

Neverwinter

Neverwinter

Neverwinter is a hack-n-slash MMORPG set in the cult-classic Neverwinter Nights universe. The game sports five (quite generic) classes, many more professions and impressive freedom in character customization. Common RPG features such as companions, grinding-based quests and numerous instances are to be found here. They offer little that's unique but are solidly implemented. It�s true that fans of Neverwinter Nights are likely to be disappointed � no great lore and story immersion above the bare minimum here � but the Neverwinter MMORPG is definitely worth trying. Despite its flaws one can very well call it a great hack-n-slash game: impeccable combat, nice graphics and a game-changer called the Foundry, an interface where players can create their own adventures for others to play and rate them.

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is an action-driven MMORPG with some tower defense elements. Players choose from three classes – warrior, thief and wizard – and strive to amass the greatest treasure pile in the kingdom of Opulencia by raiding player- and monster-controlled castles. A unique feature in this game is the ability to set up your own castle defenses against other players. The game has its humorous moments – for example, there’s a monster named ‘Derp IV’ in the Mighty Quest. The gameplay is solid and fast-paced; the graphics go with the humorous tone, constantly exploiting RPG tropes; and finally F2P (free-to-play) players don’t seem to be left out of the fun, in the long run at least. If the developers fix some quirks related to leveling up and looting gear, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot will become a very good time waster indeed.

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.
