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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

There are numerous game modes: Deathmatch; Capture the Flag; Team Deathmatch; Zombie mode; etc. Some of the modes, like Hired Guns and Spy Hunt, are actually quite original. An achievement system allows users to show off their achievements and adds to the well-developed friend/clan system. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

After a tiring two hour tutorial players choose their faction from 8 martial arts schools and try to make sense of what to do next. AoW is heavily inspired by Chinese architecture and culture, featuring vast and beautiful landscapes as well as intricately designed buildings. The fact that the game is thoughtfully developed shows through all the time, starting from the huge (though sometimes confusing) skill system (and the tremendous amounts of iffy translations for each skill). Age of Wushu sports numerous unique features, such as the absence of a leveling system, replaced by skill-based leveling instead. Players' characters become NPCs when logged out. You can patrol the streets while offline -- or you can get kidnapped as well! RPG fans will be captivated, but regular players can become confused and overwhelmed with AoW’s complexity and abundance of options.

What’s very special about AW is that it has its own radio station with DJs that actively participate in the game by dedicating songs to players and answering questions. Players complete quests, manage their cities’ resources and form alliances with others. AW offers a quite elaborate research tree with three main branches. The cash shop is quite mundane, offering commonplace buffs and even more commonplace advantages to paying players. Again, the most fun in AW is to be had from the community features and the radio station, which make the game stand out from the plethora of similar MMORTS titles.

There’s also an AI that is great for offline moneymaking but generally will get you nowhere fast. At level 10 four classes – Warrior, Ranger, Mage and Priest – open up and players start getting skill cards that pertain to their class. Players can build, name and save their custom decks. The game features a nice user interface and the graphics are generally good for a browser-based title. It’s true that players can generally grow their card deck without paying, but getting the best cards is pretty hard without investing real money.

Kids also often engage in elaborate, creative roleplaying. Parents may wonder about educational content promised in the game’s ads. It’s there, but it’s not enforced, and kids can very well run around the game world without learning much about animals or geography. The game simply seems like a virtual world where children can learn much about online interactions (which are well-moderated) and trading instead – all very valuable skills, but it’s important that parents shouldn’t be deceived about the game being educational. It can be such, but is not necessarily so.

The medieval setting and the vibrant graphics supplement the experience greatly. Quite far into the game trade routes open up and the task of satisfying the needs of your populace becomes somewhat harder. However, for a city simulator this game doesn’t offer a real challenge (as there are no disasters, foreign invasions, etc.) and after about 100 hours or so of playing it the waiting times become too long to bear. On the flip side, however, it’s pretty good for a casual game and players who just want to see stuff being built will find that Anno Online delivers well, until after they’re already quite tired with the game.

Post World War 4 massively multiplayer RPG with some real time strategy elements. Pick from eight main classes with a diverse choice in subclasses. The game's style is hybrid of fantasy and themepunk design with a generous back story. The Noblian and Floresslah (steampunks and mystics respectively) are at war over control of a mineral called Earthdium to help rebuild their world. What image it should be built in however is a matter of opinion. The strategy mode of the game is called a Unit War using basic real time strategy elements with the addition of the ability for your hero to fight alongside the units you create. Unit Wars offer your character high level items and weapons. Movement is controlled with either the WASD keys or mouse clicks. There are multiple vehicles for each faction that have room for multiple passengers. And if you were curious, yes, you can even engage enemies while aboard the vehicles.

Battle Dawn Galaxies

Battle Dawn Galaxies

Battle Dawn Galaxies is a turn based strategy MMO, played in the browser. The sci-fi setting, the ‘empire management’ and other things seem quite similar to those of other games, but Battle Dawn Galaxies should be noted for a number of interesting features – namely, that players have to have mixed armies for any military success; the game is alliance-based, and these alliances have a member cap of 14; players can be conquered by other players, but that doesn't mean you cannot revolt against the conquering armies. The user interface is nice and some ambient songs accompany the game pretty well. Overall, Battle Dawn Galaxies is definitely one of the most interesting new strategy titles, but the game’s strong points can be overshadowed by the limited available information and the rather low player count.

Battlefield Heroes

Battlefield Heroes

Battlefield Heroes is a casual MMO shooter published by Electronic Arts. The game is part of the Battlefield franchise, but it’s free and has a much more relaxed atmosphere with cartoony graphics a bit like Team Fortress 2. There are two factions, both having three classes – Commando, Soldier, and Gunner – with distinct features. Vehicles, tanks, and aircraft, based on historic WWII models are also represented in the game. Players earn valor and hero points as they progress through the game; these points allow the purchasing of additional weapons and items. The matchmaking system matches players according to their skill, giving the game a newbie-friendly experience. If you enjoy cartoony graphics and a fast-paced yet relaxed atmosphere, try Battlefield Heroes.
