Marvel: Avengers Alliance

Marvel: Avengers Alliance

Marvel: Avengers Alliance is a turn based MMORPG, played in the browser. Players join S.H.I.E.L.D. and recruit heroes such as Wolverine, Iron Man, Black Widow and others to thwart the plans of the ever-present villains and trace a dangerous new drug that threatens to shift the power into the hands of the bad guys. Combat is turn based and quite complex in terms of strategy, featuring five classes that offer much more than the rock-paper-scissors classes so common in other Facebook games. Avengers Alliance features a nice innovation where players can immerse themselves in the storyline or skip straight to the action after skimming over the basics. Over 40 heroes are available for recruitment. Avengers Alliance is much better than most Facebook games, but still there’s the usual caveat: to gain advantages, you've either got to pay or keep bugging your friends to join.

MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online is a robot-fighting shooter MMO that follows the classic Mech Warrior series. Aside from the stellar graphics, players will be surprised by the sheer number of things they have to remember and take into account during combat. Players have to think about their mech’s heating, remaining ammo and also about the parts of the enemy mech they want to hit to gain an advantage. Four types of mechs make the gameplay quite diverse, but balancing issues sometimes cause games where the team with the better composition of mechs brutally dominates the other. Teamwork is the operative word: players have to communicate via the built-in voice chat or their team will get stomped over. The learning curve may scare beginning players, but as the game moves out of beta we’ll hopefully see desperately needed improvements in social features, matchmaking, and actually introducing the players to combat with a tutorial.

Ministry of War

Ministry of War

Ministry of War is a strategy MMO, set in ancient history. Players start either as Persians, Egyptians, Romans, or the Chinese, and expand their lead by building their city and conquering enemies. The ancient civilizations are well-detailed, and each playable nation has its own ‘feel’. That’s not to say the nations are different in terms of troops or buildings, though. The combat system is unusual among strategy MMOs, as combat is real-time if you opt for manual fights. The game is time-intensive, but has the player progress through four ages, thus justifying the time spent in-game. Again on the flip side, the player base doesn’t seem very large, and the translation is rough at times. That being said, however, those who like similar games should at least give Ministry of War a try – the game is fun, even with its slow pace and linguistic peculiarities.

Miramagia

Miramagia

Miramagia is a browser-based, social RPG. Choose from four classes – Mage, Shaman, Sorcerer, or Druid – and set off to explore the Miramagia world and make lots of friends in the process. Players are able to grow plants, take care of their gardens, gather herbs, construct buildings around their estate, and even tame pet dragons (what would a mage be without a dragon?!). Players earn achievements for their friends to see as they progress through the game, and interact with people from both their own and other villages. Miramagia has an easy, yet flawed interface (the player’s view is limited to the character), but offers some fun for anyone who’s looking for a casual, relaxing game.

Mythic Reign

Mythic Reign

Mythic Reign is a text-based RPG, played in the browser. It’s set in the dark world of Ozryn and has players fight for their share of the land. The game features many areas to text-plore (sorry!), sports ample opportunities for character development, and even hosts role playing forums and chat rooms.

Characters can be customized, allowing players to choose from 12 intricate classes and 4 elements, which play a great role in the PvP. The basics of the game are introduced with a long quest list, helping players shape their character by way of learning experience and skills, gathering resources and joining leagues, chats and forums. There’s certainly a lot to do in Mythic Reign after the initial quest chain. The story gets introduced gradually and is told in bits and pieces, the pace of which players can control. The game world is ample and interesting.

Mythic Reign is a rather intricate RPG and players who appreciate text-based games will surely like it. It has ample opportunities for socializing and, even if there’s no mass appeal in it, the game has a degree of polish uncharacteristic for such titles.

Mythic Saga

Mythic Saga

Mythic Saga is an isometric MMORPG played in the browser. The setting is a weird mash-up of Chinese culture, Greek myths and the western canon; for example, get a load of this -- one evil character is the Marquis de Sade! Besides the four classes (Warrior, Assassin, Mage, and Priest), three factions, which only matter for the side you’ll take during PvP, are available. Character customization doesn’t quite hit the mark. Auto questing and combat make the gaming experience casual, at least during the beginning levels. The experience rate is very high. Mythic Saga features lots of different, imaginative mounts and plenty of crafting. Players who enjoy trading will also have things to do in Mythic Saga as the auction house is available. Selling and buying gear is convenient due to a simple ‘gear level’ system. The story is at times cute and at times frustrating because of the often awkward translation.

Need for Speed World

Need for Speed World

Need For Speed World (NFS:W) is an MMO racing game, and part of the popular Need For Speed series. Real-life car models, power-ups, and a thrilling atmosphere with exciting game modes make NSF:W a truly rich experience for any racing fan. The graphics are stellar with fancy-looking reflections, detailed car models and shiny colors all over the place; there are some glitches, though, mainly connected with flickering car models. The game boasts an abundant player base as well as a sizable and detailed game world. As with all racing games, don’t expect the gameplay to be thrilling at all times — it can get repetitive, but that’s perhaps a pitfall of the genre itself.

NosTale

NosTale

NosTale is a fantasy MMORPG with flashy anime graphics. There are four character classes – adventurer (default), swordsman, archer, and sorcerer; you can only select a class when you reach level 15. NosTale isn’t a particularly catchy tale, but quests add to the story, unlike in so many other games. The game has an awesome pet system – you can capture mobs when they are down to low HP, level together with them, and use them in combat. You can build your own house, buy furniture, and invite friends to visit. Combat in NosTale is rather uneventful; PvP is interesting, though. If you like games with a style akin to that of Ragnarok, you’ll like NosTale.

Overkings

Overkings

OverKings is a fantasy MMORPG, played in the browser. The game is set in a mythological world, and its lore is fine, actually, revolving around a world in chaos after a struggle between two great heroes, caused by the vicious hero Nameless. There are eight character classes (warriors, healers, wizards – the usual). There are plenty of PvP and PvE opportunities as well as quests in OverKings, but most of the quests are along the lines of the usual “kill this” and “bring that”. OverKings is instance-based, and you have to explore the game world to find mobs to fight. Hint: you might prefer to avoid ‘red zones’ without a party, as other players can loot up to 30% of your equipment if you get killed.

Pandora Saga

Pandora Saga

Pandora Saga is an MMORPG, published by Atlus in the US. The game is set in a fantasy setting and features six races, three factions, and four classes with three job advancements for each. The story is fine, and even manages to borrow something from Greek mythology. A special treat is the PvP system, as Realm-vs-Realm play and massive PvP plays a large role in the game. There are lots of quests, and the game world is beautifully designed; however, there are some clearly visible downsides – Pandora Saga has awkward combat and occasional bugs, plus the player base is rather small, which keeps the aforementioned PvP instances from reaching their full potential for fun.

Panzer General Online

Panzer General Online

Panzer General Online (PGO) is a strategic card game developed by Ubisoft. The game, played in a browser, is a part of the original Panzer General franchise that stretches back some 20 years.

PGO does a good job of introducing the players to the mechanics, which are similar to those of Might & Magic: Duel of Champions. PvP opens at level six, and until then the more experienced players will be stuck with the campaign. By doing the campaign, however, players gain in-game currency that can be used to purchase card decks. The three-lane combat system gives room for endless variety whilst keeping the matches short—against the AI a match is seldom more than 5 minutes, but a headstrong human enemy can keep you busy for 15 more. It must be said that PGO sports impressive graphics with detailed cards and boasts a simple yet powerful UI. The sound effects are also more than on par with what one expects from browser games.

It’s hard to find fault with this game, really. PGO seems really well-polished and unlike many such games doesn’t push the player to purchase anything. If you like card games and WWII history, you should probably try it.

Pit of War

Pit of War

Pit of War (PoW) is an exciting browser-based MMORPG in which players compete as gladiators in the pits of the dreadful fantasy world called Great Realm.

Success in PoW depends on mastering the intricacies of the gladiators—there are three distinct classes of these—and finding the best strategy to cut through opponents. PoW is text-only so the fights are auto-played according to your strategy. Battling players or computer-controlled champions will provide money, spent on new weapons or gladiators. PoW looks splendid with oh-so-serious visuals that pertain to the backstory as well as gory images accompanying battle reports. The interface is flawless, skill-trees add near unlimited variety and there’s always something to do—players can participate in unranked fights for epic gear or complete daily quests for experience and items.

PoW is truly an amazing experience, somehow managing to bring the excitement of a more immersive game type, say 3D hack’n’slash, to the browser. The only real complaint is that trophies, the game’s premium currency, give a very real edge to paying players… still you can always complete some surveys.

Planetside 2

Planetside 2

Planetside 2 is a MMO FPS developed by Sony Online Entertainment. Pick one of three factions and battle for control of the planet Auraxis. The massive battles, which sometimes host up to 600 players at once, will surely amaze you. Numerous vehicles, play styles and classes make the combat very diverse—still, somehow it never gets too chaotic. Co-op is important and adds to the game greatly. Play with your friends if possible as then each battle will become an engaging story. Although player and weapon models might seem generic, the environment is well-detailed and overall the game looks great (an up-to-date computer, however, is required to enjoy Planetside 2 without lag). Considering that games of this quality usually have a retail price, Planetside 2 would be worth playing even if it were ‘pay to win’. But it isn’t, which makes it all the more compelling.

Pockie Pirates

Pockie Pirates

Pockie Pirates is a turn-based MMORPG played in the browser. Based on the anime One Piece, this side-scrolling adventure features vibrant, colorful graphics appropriate for an anime adaptation. The pirate setting promises and delivers adventure – you start off an aspiring pirate and work your way up, ever in fear of falling off the gangplank. Four classes – swordsman, navigator, sniper and doctor – are great for diversity’s sake, but characters start off looking exactly the same, which can be confusing. The ship and gear customization options at later levels are nice, though. ‘Instanced’ missions are often crowded and hard to get into. The combat is computer-controlled, leaving players out of the action; there’s an auto quest option as well. Overall, Pockie Pirates is a nice experience given that it’s a browser-based title and most players enter with moderate expectations.

Pockie Saints

Pockie Saints

Pockie Saints is a social, anime-inspired MMORPG played from an isometric perspective. The fan-servicing advertisements might lead one to conclude that the game’s not suitable for minors, but thankfully ‘anime’ is the operative word here, not ‘hentai’. There are three classes and even some lore, which will slip by players as they mindlessly auto-quest through the pretty and colorful world of Pockie Saints. The game features an interesting zodiac system that encompasses the whole game, with players crafting zodiac medals that provide characters with new, powerful skills. Players have customizable pets and can choose their skills, and then there’s the elaborate crafting system. There are also numerous social features within the game, but one rarely sees any meaningful communication taking place. Players looking for something fresh in this genre would very well pass this by, but, that being said, Pockie Saints does deliver a solid experience if you enter with moderate expectations.

Prime World

Prime World

Prime World (PW) is a Multiplayer Battle Arena (MOBA) game with castle building elements. Prime World follows the same basic structure of other MOBAs – players’ heroes get pitted against those of their enemies to duke it out and gain the game’s prime resource (called Prime, incidentally), much like in League of Legends or Dota. The game has two clients – a social one that allows players to customize their castle, giving their hero new abilities and gaining resources, and a PvP client that hosts the PvP pits. There are numerous twists to PW that make it different but might also raise an eyebrow: there’s a mini-game played during combat that gives players scrolls; players get bonuses on native terrain (a nice touch really); and characters of opposite sex can give each other bonuses. The actual combat is OK and PW could serve as an entry-level MOBA since no items exist and the game sports a good tutorial.

An emotionally charged online role playing game. Born on a world in the aftermath of near destruction, the player, together with a mysterious female companion – the Anima, which can summon and control huge monsters, Gigas – sets off to discover the secrets of the world that is Prius Online. Nice graphics with something of an Asian feel. The combat is fluid, with rather mediocre quests but many opportunities for grinding. Lots of PvP opportunities (starting from level 26) on a densely populated world. If you are one for sad stories and killing hordes of monsters, you’ll like this one.

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

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

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

The game is full of PvP instances and arenas, and, to top it off, slaying your enemies rewards you with much more than mere ‘honor’. RIFT is very complete for a new online game (especially the class and skill system), and, although not aspiring to be something ground breaking, the game offers an experience that rivals most similar games out there.

Two maps are available to the player: the story map and the city map. The story map is for leveling up and exploring while the city map hosts PvP and the card auction house. The numerous social features in this game are helpful in making friends. An extra degree of complexity is added with strategy-game-like upgrades to your town hall and buildings. Of course, this all comes with a price—it’s free to play, but scaling the heights is next to impossible without paying.

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.

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

Scarlet Blade

Scarlet Blade

Scarlet Blade is an anime-style MMORPG set in a cyberpunk universe. It has recently sparked a lot of controversy over its titillating, over-the-top character designs. There are two factions, featuring six classes each – all female, incidentally. At level 17 the main skill opens up, allowing you to turn your characters into mechs. Combat is what you’d expect from an anime (or perhaps hentai) inspired game – fighting a level 1 monster will feel like battling the Hulk from within a 23rd century juggernaut. The story doesn’t draw you in, even if the dialogue can be humorous at times. Quests are cookie-cutter MMORPG grinding most of the time, but PvP can be quite impressive with 80v80 player arenas available. Be warned that there’s some nudity in Scarlet Blade, plus the look of the player models will leave you with some explaining to do if you’re caught playing this game.

All of them can be customized and upgraded, plus custom Gundam units can be created by combining blueprints. The game sports an engaging, arcade-like combat system which is made a bit more complex by introducing three unit types. Players can battle either in solo quests or massive PvP arenas, with four PvP modes being available in over 50 different locations. The graphics aren’t outstanding but at least have a unique look and keep the game's footprint small.

Shadowbound is a browser-based MMORPG by R2Games. It has a casual touch, meaning most of the game can be played through automatically.

Players choose a male or female character, having picked their character class from the holy trinity of RPGs—Mage, Warrior, Hunter (Archer)—and enter the colorful world of Shadow bound. Players can hire mercenaries and later on can be accompanied by powerful guardians. PvP opens at level 31, featuring 3v3 and 8v8 arenas with... automatic combat. Players supplement their Battle Rating – the main measure of success – with gear and talismans, the acquisition of which is quite fun. There are many things to do ‘on the side’ as well: players engage in trivia games, and if not successful they’re turned into an alpaca; the social aspects are well-developed; and overall there’s just a lot to do in Shadowbound. The interface can get cluttered at times, but on the flip side there’s a button to remove player models from the screen.

Shadowbound features solid performance throughout, and if not for titles like Wartune, it could be seen as the game that reaches closest to the Platonic ideal of the genre. The casual gamer will find nothing particularly unique in Shadowbound, but nothing particularly disappointing as well.

Choose from three races and three main unit types; build up your city; form alliances, and, finally, muster up enough strength to get rid of the undead once and for all. Lots of social features and some in-game events also help.

Choose from two factions (surprisingly, "the empire" is the good side in this game) as well as four classes, complete engaging quests, compete in instances, engage in PvP and try to get better gear. The game is strikingly similar to some well-known titles, with perhaps Diablo and Ultima Online being the most obvious examples. That is not to say that SOD has no merits of its own. The developers have done their best to make quests more diverse than in similar games, and the graphics have a special feeling to them as well. There is, however, very little information available about many of the game’s features, such as crafting, PvP and dungeons.

Sim Raceway is an MMO racing simulator, focused on providing a rich, realistic driving experience both for hardcore sim fans and casual gamers. Featuring numerous real-life models -- and more are on the way -- and a driving experience crafted with the help of real drivers, Sim Raceway aspires to be nothing short of the number one choice when it comes to racing simulators. The graphics are nice with highly-detailed and smart looking cars (the landscapes are sometimes lacking in detail, though), and the driving itself is surprisingly realistic with bumps, road irregularities, and even simulated air turbulence at higher speeds. While this reviewer cannot comment on whether the driving experience is car-specific, it might as well be such, as the game has a pleasant sense of professionalism, which is not that common for games like these – or MMOs altogether.

SmashMuck Champions

SmashMuck Champions

SmashMuck Champions is a fast-paced MOBA with a simple gameplay, cartoony graphics and numerous game modes.

It’s quite different from other MOBAs: matches are seldom longer than 15 minutes, team play and cooperative strategy is encouraged more heavily, and the game is easy to learn. The heroes are controlled using WASD, with skillshots and regular attacks controlled with the mouse. SmashMuck offers considerable variety, featuring: 26 unique champions, 600+ items, 8 maps, and 5 game modes ranging from classical tower defense to capture the flag to control point capture, plus two game modes new to the genre—survival and crystal gathering. The client can be a bit buggy at times, but generally SmashMuck runs smoothly. Plus it’s a delight to look upon, sporting colorful, Team Fortress-like graphics.

Altogether, SmashMuck definitely seems more casual, more play- rather than success-oriented than other MOBAs. This can be a bad thing, because it discourages competitive play and the exciting coverage that comes from it. Most players, however, will be happy there’s finally a MOBA without excessive pressure from competitive or simply ill-mannered teammates.
