Soul of Guardian

Soul of Guardian

Soul of Guardian (SoG) is a browser-based MMORPG with a touch of fantasy. Players pick from four classes – blade warrior, dagger assassin, hammer judge, spear guard – and complete quests, participate in events, acquire pets as well as new gear, and so on. Auto-move makes it incredibly easy to do quests. The experience rate is huge (you can make it to level 20 in about 15 minutes), but the game quickly becomes boring – some might say ‘casual’ – because of the redundant quests. SoG’s graphics are bright with clear and spirited colors. The part of the game that's most fun is the PvP. The game has its flaws, but it’s new, so hopefully we’ll see it become more interesting. On the bright side, SoG’s paid features are alluring, but not game-changing, and the game itself can serve up a refreshing gaming session at the end of a tiring day.

Star 86

Star 86

Star 86 is a children’s MMO played in the browser. The game starts with the player creating her or his own cute avatar called a Dubble, which can be customized at any time. Creativity, especially musical creativity is emphasized in this game where players explore the galaxy of Star 86 in a starship, collecting souvenirs and usable music instruments all while making their own home in the game world. There are numerous planets in the galaxy to explore, each hosting its very own mini-game. These harmless games include hide-and-seek, cowboy games, racing, etc. The community is closely moderated and the chat has a swearing filter. On top of that a number of parent lock features are available, such as setting a bedtime, a daily playing limit, and so on.

Star Trek Online

Star Trek Online

Star Trek Online (STO) is a sci-fi MMORPG game, set in the universe of the Star Trek TV shows. Players can choose from three officer professions – engineer, science, and tactical – and numerous races that pertain to the Star Trek canon. The character customization is greatly detailed. Players are given a starship of their own and, after a brief introduction, they start completing ground missions and space missions (the former are far more interesting) to gain experience and new skills. Visually, the game is beautiful and its story is appealing even to players new to Star Trek. Missions become repetitive as the player levels up, but social features help in overcoming the stale gameplay. Overall, however, STO doesn’t do justice to the original franchise, and even the regular updates haven’t been able to cope with the shortcomings inherent in the game economy and combat, making the game less interesting as you progress.

Super Hero Squad Online

Super Hero Squad Online

A MMO game based on the ever-popular Marvel cartoon, Super Hero Squad. Currently the game is restricted to the United States. It’s run in the browser. You start the game with one of four different characters (Ms. Marvel, Cyclops, Thing and Falcon). Purchase additional characters with gold or silver. Gold is hard to acquire unless you subscribe to the game. Graphics are a treat and are in line with the spirit of the comics/cartoons. Play missions with friends or solo; level up your Marvel superheroes of choice; explore the game world for bonuses and use hero-specific special abilities. Fighting bosses and catching burglars is particularly fun.

Super Mechs

Super Mechs

Super Mechs is a Flash robot fighting MMO. Players start with a basic mech and try making it the strongest by beating enemies, gathering experience and upgrading their mechs. Users can play without registering, but PvP is available only to registered users. The turn-based combat is actually very interesting with numerous variables, such as energy, heat capacity, action points and the enemy’s strong points and vulnerabilities that need to be taken into account if the player hopes to win. There are three types of Super Mechs, and all of them can be upgraded using the in-game currency – players will find themselves in the garage quite often, thinking up the best setup for their mechs. If this sounds complicated, it really isn’t – the game plays like an arcade and is a perfect, addictive time sink to enjoy at work or, better yet, after.

Swords and Potions 2

Swords and Potions 2

Swords and Potions is a Flash shop keeping simulator. Players become the owners of a small shop and sell RPG wares like scrolls, potions and weapons, striving to find new recipes, hire new underlings and obtain rare stuff by sending customers on quests.

This colorful game sports fairly complex mechanics, giving players the ability to expand, hire new workers to create new products and even create or move to privately-owned cities. Although it costs gold to buy everything, ‘resources’ like Shop Fame and Affinity will determine much of players’ success in the long run. Trading is a huge part of the game, and the auction house is busy all the time. Longer quest chains and dungeons are there as well, allowing players to obtain rare resources and recipes.

Swords and Potions 2 is definitely an interesting game. The graphics are rather generic and the soundtrack boring, but the mere idea of becoming a stall owner (the game is basically you becoming an NPC) in your favorite RPG certainly holds some allure.

Tales of Solaris

Tales of Solaris

Tales of Solaris (formerly Tales of Laputa) is a browser-based MMORPG set in a world where magic and machinery coexist. This anime-inspired game boasts colorful graphics, interesting turn-based combat and casual aspects of play like enchanting and pet keeping. Players choose from six classes and explore the game world together with a cosmetic or combat pet. A future update will also include armor for pets, further increasing their combat efficiency. Social features are emphasized heavily – social gamers are awarded with buffs; there’s also a lovers’ system. While the game is mostly pretty generic, the intricately developed enchanting and pet keeping systems might just keep you playing.

TDP4 Team Battle

TDP4 Team Battle

TDP4: Team Battle is a 2D MMO shooter that’s played in the browser. The game is Flash-powered with gameplay that’s engrossing and alive, but requires skill at the same time. Played much like a 2D version of Counter-Strike, TDP4: Team Battle sports classic game modes – team death match (TDM), capture the flag (CTF) and death match (DM) – and important extra features like clans and rewards. Although the skill cap is rather high, players are matched by level of play, which make it easy to find opponents at your skill level. Paid features should be less emphasized, though. The game is well-detailed for a Flash production, and offers enough variety to make it fun for more than an evening or two.

Tera Rising

Tera Rising

Tera – called Tera Rising after it moved to F2P (free to play) – is an MMORPG with some hack’n’slash elements. It sports 7 races and 8 character classes, with a massive game world to house them. Visually stunning, the game provides an immersive experience with a skill-based combat system and countless monsters to use it on. Once past the initial ‘kill x mobs and return’ quest chain, players can dedicate themselves to doing PvP and PvE, dueling other players or killing Big Ass Monsters (BAMs) in the intricate dungeons. There seem to be three main flaws to Tera: lack of quest variety, the poor story and, more serious still, the lack of engaging endgame content. It’s still a good game, but keep in mind that it has its flaws.

The Secret World

The Secret World

The Secret World is a darkly binding MMORPG set in the modern-day real world. It’s developed by Funcom, the masterminds behind MMOs like Anarchy Online and Age of Conan.

Join one of the battling factions – Illuminati, Templar or Dragon – and make your way through the world by following quests, supplemented by side jobs and dungeons. Spanning diverse real-world and mythical locations like Seoul, London and the esoteric Agartha, TSW weaves together fiction and fact to create an experience reminiscent of legendary titles like Deus Ex. TSW features many challenges—quest clues have to be googled; many missions require stealth and planning; the richly detailed locations have to be explored detective-style. The skill system stands out in that it doesn’t have levels, and much good can be said about the sheer subtlety and the noir atmosphere of the game world. Bottom line, TSW is quite unique in many respects. Note, however—the combat is rather dull, and quests become boring late in the game.

Altogether, though, even if TSW was scathed for the lack of imagination in its end-game in early reviews, it has come a long way since. The highly enjoyable part of the game has become much longer, and the multiplayer more diverse. For a trial, a friend will have to invite you over.

The Wrestling Game

The Wrestling Game

The Wrestling Game (TWG) is a text-based wrestling game in which players contend for the world title in a series of textually narrated matches. Level up the character and find out if you’re strong enough for the ring, learning new moves, training the ones you already know and attracting numerous fans in the process.

After choosing his wrestler’s type, the player finishes a brief tutorial and starts exploring the rather packed interface of the game. Matches are found easily, and even the text narration can be quite exciting (there’s also a shabby 3D view). There are myriads of moves to learn, and players can create and name their own. Finding a contender is always easy, and there are tournaments for the more competitive players. The community, even though friendly for the most part, is mostly composed of adults and as such the chat features everything from innocuous doodling to lewd innuendo.

TWG is definitely not newbie-friendly; the pre-2000 graphics don’t make for a good first impression; as mentioned the community is a lopsided sword. It is, however, a rather intricate game and those prepared to invest in it are quite likely to have some good fun playing it.

Travian

Travian

Travian is one of the oldest strategy MMOs out there. Set in the Roman Empire, circa 1st century AD, the game sports three different classes, representing different nationalities – the Gauls, Romans, and Teutons. Beginning players build their villages; veteran players wage war. Travian is exciting -- every 100 to 300 days (depending on the server) the end-game festivities commence, and culminate in an emerging winner. Travian is easy to learn but hard to master, and is almost flawless, except for two caveats, one minor and the other game-changing – the graphics are virtually non-existent, and players who throw money at the game have noticeable advantages.

Tribes: Ascend

Tribes: Ascend

Tribes: Ascend is an MMO first-person shooter set on a persistent world of the Tribes universe. Tribes is a very old co-op FPS franchise – a genre classic for some. The newest reincarnation of Tribes uses the praised Unreal 3 engine to create a graphically splendid game which also excels in terms of gameplay. The game mostly focuses on capture the flag, but other modes like Team Death Match are available – and more are expected to be added after the game gets released. Mastering both movement and projectile aiming is key for success in Tribes: Ascend. It’s similar to games like Unreal Tournament (especially later generations of it where vehicles are featured) and Quake, not only in terms of gameplay, but also in the learning curve which can seem to be an overhang for players new to FPS. Note that Tribes: Ascend requires a decent PC to run, especially on higher settings.

Tyrant

Tyrant

Tyrant is a MMO Collectible Card Game (CCG) set in a sci-fi environment reminiscent of Warhammer 40K. The game is played in a browser. There is an absence of health or mana cards in Tyrant, which removes some complexity from the gameplay; instead, the emphasis is on cards with special abilities as well as elemental cards. A player’s deck consists of 10 cards, and the developers are keen to update the deck to keep the game fresh. Tyrant is fast-paced, especially in single player, but there’s not much variety in the game until you get to PvP. Once you’re in, however, the game gets more fun, especially if you’re willing to spend a coin for extra cards. Ultimately, though, CCG enthusiasts should lower their expectations before diving in, mainly due to the limited strategy options.

A nautical themed RPG, set in the Age of Exploration, between the 15th and 17th century, and based on real historical events. Start from six historical locations and choose from three classes plus a great number of professions (they can be changed instantly, albeit for a fee). Trade and earn money by shipping goods from one country to another, but beware of pirates; unearth hidden treasures and explore uncharted territories to bring glory to your allied nations. A slow but very rewarding game, UWO offers a truly unique experience for those willing to study its secrets. Great PvP and PvE opportunities, but the focus is set to exploring the massive game world and having adventures, both on the sea and on the shore.

Uprising Empires

Uprising Empires

Uprising Empires is a strategy MMO, set in an alternate history in the year 1280 AD. Choose from four factions, build up your city, recruit heroes, and invade foreign soil to become the overlord of the game. There are four age advancements, which is always good as such advancements create an end-game goal; then there are opportunities for alliances to actually emerge victorious in the game and this adds an extra motivation to play. Unfortunately, the game’s innovation stops here. There are the usual daily quests, research and city conquering, attacking barbarians, and so on. Graphically, the game isn’t striking but doesn’t put a strain on the eyes. Also, the obvious emphasis on paid features makes a good deal of the game unavailable to those unwilling to pay.

Virtual Families

Virtual Families

Virtual Families (VF) is a real-life sim quite akin to The Sims. Adopt a character and move him into your home, then reach out to the second half by using a dating website. Once they have kids you’re bound to be hooked.

Players have to keep an eye on their adoptees’ needs and help them fulfill these needs and wants by dragging them around—to the kitchen when they’re hungry, the outdoors when they’re longing for nature, and on top of one another when they’re ‘in the mood’. The game plays out in real-time, meaning that it still continues when you log off unless it’s paused. Just like in The Sims, players can buy furniture and decorations, but players also can unlock achievements and awards as well as find secrets. Success is measured mostly in pecuniary terms in this game.

Altogether, VF is a decent title, especially since it’s a mobile game (also available as a PC download). It has vibrant graphics, a familiar feel, and of course the characters are lovable, especially the children. VF does, however, have a derivative feel to it, plus there are bugs in the AI that makes the families less clever than they ought to be.

Warfare

Warfare

Warfare is an RTS title set in a post-apocalyptic world ridden by terrorists. Join one of the four nations and remove the terrorist threat, fighting and forming alliances with other players in the process.

Players start off small and build up their island base, produce troops, recruit historical generals and look for stronger battle formations in order to better their military success. Three unit types (air, ground, naval) exist with four types of soldiers and three placement types, offering considerable variety in terms of strategy. Players can also loot stat-boosting items for their main character, which they can level up as well; there’s also an elaborate achievement system. The end-game is played in short bursts, but until quite late levels quests are plentiful. The developers could use an editor, so for example the opening credits show off some rather horrid writing: ‘To find new energy resources, new energy resources were sought after.’

Warfare has a rather long tutorial—one can get a taste of what the game has to offer only an hour or so into the game. Some players will find the long building times a chore; others will find that the burst playing manner suits them well.

Wargame 1942

Wargame 1942

Wargame 1942 is a strategy/empire building game set in the time of World War II. Players are deployed on a random continent without any customization options (quite bad for a history-based title) and strive to become the greatest general in the world. A nice, quest-based tutorial leads the player until PvP starts. PvP is balanced as you can’t attack players who are much stronger or weaker. Buildings are constructed quite slowly, signaling that the game is for those who want to invest a little time daily. Your army requires upkeep so resource management is crucial to success. The game features an in-depth tech tree while the combat is dependent on unit types, adding a further level of complexity. What’s more, diplomatic missions can deflect attacking armies – this allows the achieving of victory with means other than outright warfare. There have been, however, numerous complaints about cheaters.

WarMage Battlegrounds

WarMage Battlegrounds

WarMage Battlegrounds is a turn-based strategy MMO, played in the browser. The battle aspect of the game features gameplay similar to that of Heroes of Might and Magic or Fallout 2. There isn't much to the story at all, and the fantasy setting is standard. WarMage is PvP-centric, meaning that other players, not the computer, have to be outsmarted for acquiring items and unlocking new unit types. Before joining a game, players configure their battle force and arrange their items and spells to gain every possible advantage over the enemy. Although WarMage Battlegrounds is graphically appealing and not bad in terms of strategy, battles tend to take a while, and so does the process of acquiring items, and this makes the game not especially rewarding for the amount of time invested.

World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft

The game that set the standard for modern role playing games on the internet now lets you play for free until your character reaches level twenty. World of Warcraft is famous for its party instances and seamless landscapes, providing one of the richest player experiences that RPG games have to offer.

Earlier levels require the same repetitive actions (grinding) as other RPGs to help level up your character to get to the real fun of WOW -- entering dungeons and raids across the world of Azeroth in cooperation with fellow players.

Winged mounts are available to ferry you for a small fee, but you have to travel to those destinations first by foot before you can get there via the skies.

Select from fifteen different professions. Whatever profession you choose, your goods will pay off quickly in useful items or currency from online auctions.

You have ten classes to choose from when creating a character (including the newly created Death Knight available after the release of the Cataclysm expansion). Classes have different roles in the game world of Azeroth, and if you’ve never played a massively multiplayer rpg before, you will quickly learn about the strengths of combining these roles for battling in groups. Tanks take the brunt of the damage from enemy attack, while damage dealers (both melee and from a distance) deliver their payloads. During the battle, healers make sure that comrades keep their health. More than half of the classes allow you to play multiple roles in party battle. Be sure to check out the class guide before hopping in so you get the kind of battle experience you are looking for.

There are five games modes available when creating player versus player matches in the lobby. Item mode gives you power-up crates you can collect to use special attacks on your opponents. The player-versus-environment aspect of the game involves matches of up to four players duking it out cooperatively against NPCs in a classic side-scrolling arcade setting.
