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?"

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.

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.

Infinity Wars

Infinity Wars

Infinity Wars is a MMO collectible card game (CCG) that was crowd funded via Kickstarter.

As far as the game format goes, IW has the standard trappings of a CCG, offering seven card decks, each of a distinct faction and requiring a distinct play style. It features several innovative card game mechanics that make it stand out from the pack. Furthermore, IW boasts a single player mode that eases players into the game’s intricacies that can take quite some time to master—however, the fact that they’re there makes it much more interesting in the long run. The combat is powered by a zone system where you have to be careful to balance and move the cards through different zones, featuring a ‘command zone’ where you can place cards to start the game with. Lastly there’s a morale stat that depletes as cards are destroyed, thus discouraging mindless burning of cards.

Infinity Wars is a better CCG than most, some say even better than Hearthstone. It looks and plays great with vibrant card animations that come alive in 3D. Its mechanics ensure that IW has a staying power, and overall the game can certainly be deemed a success, especially given that the developers aren’t a billion-dollar company.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Monkey King Online

Monkey King Online

Monkey King Online (MKO) is an isometric MMORPG, played in the browser. It’s developed by R2Games and has many of the same features games as the myriads of similar games do.

MKO plays itself, but you do have to hand in quests by yourself. Players choose from four classes and let the game take them to level 50 when things slow down and it becomes a grindfest. Playing for 10 minutes, the players get a mount and reach level 30. It’s fun up to the point where one realizes exactly why games like these have auto-play. The player is overwhelmed with features like mounts, ‘goddesses’, guilds, pets, discovering how to make the UI less clunky, and so on—all just to steer away from the fact that the game is incredibly poorly executed overall.

There are, however, some that find games like these appealing. Either they don’t know better ones or have been hooked by other players, because you can, somehow, find you’ve joined a guild without realizing it. MKO is a cookie-cutter adventure through and through, but to its credit it can at least be made bearable by the community.

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 classes—five in total, and all have their role in combat—as well as player-controllable turn based combat, and that’s definitely a good thing. What’s 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 there’s not much reason to take them.

Overall, Mythborne offers more than a similar, generic title would, but it’s debatable whether that’s 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.

Nova Genesis

Nova Genesis

Nova Genesis is a 2.5D side-scrolling RPG by R2Games. It features a vibrant and visually faultless fantasy world with sci-fi elements, although it is dulled a bit because of the game’s overwhelming similarity to other titles.

Players pick one from the three generic classes, go through a brief intro sequence, and so the story, which is actually quite fun and focuses on a kidnapped princess, unfolds. Even though visuals are great, animations are on the choppy side. Social features are abundant, and one of the few unique aspects is the ability for players to build a home base that others can visit. PvP is automatic, and much of the game will be played for you, if you choose.

Although Nova Genesis is still in development, it’s pretty functional already. Sadly, it’s that way only because it’s largely a copy of the company’s previous games—like Wartune and League of Angels, to name a few.

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.

Pirate 101

Pirate 101

Pirate 101 (P101) is a family-friendly MMORPG by the developers of Wizard 101. It’s set in a colorful and lively steampunk-ish universe that’s similar to the company’s wizard-themed game.

After an intro that plots the life story of the player’s character, s/he is plunged into the game, guided by impeccably-voiced, genuinely funny pirates and driven forward through a series of quests. The slowly-paced gameplay consists mostly of wandering, fighting monsters and, the icing of the cake, participating in airship battles. The fights are turn-based, but ship shootouts happen in real time, offering intense thrills but encouraging faster decision-making, not necessarily more thinking.

Despite P101’s focus on an audience of children (10+ rating), players of all ages can find something of value here. Parents can control kids’ chat access, but adults have access to 18+ channels. This vibrant game offers many perks, but the cash shop gives a real edge to paying players, and keep in mind that P101 is free only during the opening chapters.

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.

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.

Siegelord

Siegelord

Siegelord is a MMO Strategy with RPG elements. It’s set in a medieval fantasy universe where the player’s kingdom has come under attack. It’s up to you to fend off the attacks and expand at the same time.

There are three factions to choose from, and they all have some vaguely unique characteristics. Combat can be controlled, and, although having more troops is what usually counts, strategy can in fact make it or break it during battle. PvP, an integral part of the game, opens up pretty late, but you’ll be kept busy with instances and quests until you can find some real enemies. Battles are faction-based. As far as production value goes, Siegelord looks and feels and plays great. There’s even a community radio, which accepts players’ requests.

Siegelord is definitely trying to do something unique, and even though the game doesn’t succeed at some things—like the rather hazy storyline or the mindless clickety-click-click of the early-to-mid game—it’s definitely a refreshing title you’re likely to enjoy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Zombies Ate My Pizza

Zombies Ate My Pizza

Zombies Ate My Pizza is a top-down 2D shooter by R2Games. Fight your way through ever growing hordes of pizza-hungry zombies with numerous weapons, guided by the smell of the delicious, cheese-topped crust.

Now you probably aren’t looking for a story in a game with a title like this, but just so you know the pizza theme isn’t really important here. The dialogues feature silly humor that doesn’t quite hit the mark, but the younger players may get a few laughs out of it. Players run through rather repetitive and short levels of zombies that attack you melee, from afar, or with special abilities. The combat is rather fun and there’s a lot of handholding until the later levels when there’s suddenly none. Although the design of the levels leaves a lot to be desired, the decent, one might even say unique graphics make running through them an enjoyable aesthetic experience.

If PvP weren’t automated, ZAMP would be much better. To R2Games’ credit, this title doesn’t require the player to pay up to have a decent chance in becoming a top player; on the other hand, it doesn’t really make clear why a player would want to.

Zombies Monsters Robots

Zombies Monsters Robots (ZMR) is an amusingly self-conscious MMO third-person shooter with lots of zombies, monsters, robots and some laser-shooting dinosaurs as well.

ZMR features numerous game modes so excitement is constantly maxed out. It has intense combat and tactical gameplay—in some modes, at least—with cover-based shooting against ranged enemies. Players have to be careful as they have a limited ammo supply. There’s a multitude of maps, weapons and player models as well. You can play co-op or compete with others to meet countless waves of monsters or duke it out in a deathmatch. Weapons can be customized, and boss fights are quite random, making every encounter an adventure (or a nightmare, if you’re out of luck). Updates are released each month and feature ever more ridiculous monsters, like shark tornadoes or augmented orcs from World of Warcraft.

ZMR can be very enjoyable with friends, but when you get paired with high-level or paying players it gets challenging. Furthermore, ZMR encourages griefing as players can pick up ammo that isn’t theirs, and my, ammunition does appear to be rather scarce in this game.

As in most F2P games, annoying players and cheaters are a problem; however, both gradually pass by as you reach higher ranks. Those looking for a competitive FPS will find Combat Arms highly entertaining.

Crystal Saga

Crystal Saga

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.

Doom Warrior

Doom Warrior

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.

Dragon Nest

Dragon Nest

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.

Eredan

Eredan

Eredan is an online card playing game set in the Eredan universe. There are two Eredan titles, and Eredan iTCG is discussed here, not Eredan GT. The game’s lore is not only well-detailed, but engrossing, clever, and ridiculous at times. Eredan has its own huge card deck that players use to compete. There are a number of factions, all of which have unique card decks and racial strengths and weaknesses. The skill level is Elo-based, which makes finding matched opponents a lot easier. A fun tutorial takes you through the basics, and sets you right off to explore the world where there’s certainly a lot to explore.

Fortuna

Fortuna

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

GoalUnited

GoalUnited

Goal United is an online MMO which puts you in the role of a soccer club manager. You have to upgrade your stadium to host games, sign new players and trade away those who don’t fit in, sign deals with sponsors (you can even negotiate with them), and keep your players in top form to ensure you emerge victorious versus other football managers. The game is league-based -- each league consists of 10 teams. On the lower leagues, the three best teams get promoted to a higher league automatically. However, as your team gets better, you’ll have to battle neighboring league teams in the playoffs in order to reach a higher league. The game is beginner-friendly as there’s an awesome tutorial for newbies. GoalUnited’s details will keep you busy for weeks, as you can tweak every possible setting, player placement, etc. The game can, however, get somewhat slow for those who don’t purchase additional features.

My Lands

My Lands

My Lands is a fantasy-themed strategy MMO. Players can choose from four races and engage in expanding their empire, conquering other territories, forming alliances, etc. Players earn real money through My Lands, by hunting Black Gems. In order to do that, however, players have to purchase a paid subscription. The game has some innovative features like mentorship, which encourages experienced players to aid newbies; moreover, My Lands promotes social play through social quests and alliances. The developers probably wanted to spark competition (and earn more money) by introducing cash prizes, and rightfully so, as it seems that the cash incentive has made the game fiercely competitive � within the paying community, at least. (Update: as of April 2017, My Lands no longer allows players to withdraw cash prizes from the game.)

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.

Wartune

Wartune

Wartune is a turn-based MMORPG with a fantasy setting and some RTS elements like city management. The backstory, as well as graphics, borrows a lot from Blizzard’s titles – the very first monster encounter is a ‘Tauren’ and the game’s locations are at times identical to those of Diablo. There are three main character classes with well-developed skill trees. The game world is quite beautiful, and exploring it offers hours of fun even if it can be made overly easy with the auto quest feature. The game’s gear-based combat can sometimes be confusing when, for example, thousands of units are represented by at most two; but visuals are impressive. Dungeons, bosses and PvP arenas add to the sometimes bland and derivative gameplay.
