Aura Kingdom (AK) is an anime-inspired fantasy MMO from Aeria Games, boasting eight classes (plus one mystery class), a well-developed companion system and a unique skill tree. The game features beautiful, cartoony graphics in an open world with instances (dungeons) supplementing it as well. Players get acquainted with the game mechanics by doing a tutorial with end-game items and stats, but upon waking up start off with the usual sort of quest chain, which can be done quickly with auto-path. Leveling is fast; assiduous players can hit the level cap in a matter of weeks, if not days. PvP and crafting opens up quite late. AK features immersive combat with the player being able to dodge enemy skill-shots and run around the enemy while attacking. There’s also an elaborate companion system, featuring combat pets called Eidolons that supplement the abilities of the player’s class. Overall, Aura Kingdom seems to be a well-polished even if not terribly unique title. It lacks end-game content as of now, but that should change soon. The game’s sole challenge is PvP, and perhaps its lack of real difficulty in other areas can make this game a bit more boring than it could be.See Videos

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.

Dekaron (aka 2Moons) is a 3D MMORPG developed by Nexon. The background is something of a dark fantasy. Dekaron features seven classes (plus two more upcoming) and two factions. This diversity supplements the PvP-centric gameplay well. The combat arcade style combat requires some skill. Mounts and pets are included; so are siege events and open-world PvP action. Nice if somewhat outdated graphics add to the game’s dark atmosphere. Players can access open areas as well as instanced dungeons. Dekaron is a quality game -- like most Nexon games – in terms of content. Fishing, crafting, PvP and events – there’s certainly a lot to do in Dekaron.See Videos

Dragon Eternity (DE) is a browser-based MMORPG set in the fantasy world of Adan. Take your pick from two opposing empires and fight for dominance over the other. Nine professions and three classes, which are chosen in-game by equipping class-suited items, make Dragon Eternity an unusually dynamic game. PvP, the game's most fun aspect, opens up at level four -- such early PvP is uncommon for games like this. Quests are as plentiful as they are repetitive. Players can purchase items that aid in PvP for real money, putting paying players at an advantage. However, PvP events are fun even against the richer players: there are five game modes, including King of the Hill where 3 weaker players compete against a more powerful player. DE is fun if you like non-stop competition, but otherwise it can become somewhat tedious.See Videos

Dragon Fable is a medieval fantasy MMORPG, played in the browser. There are three classes – warrior, mage, and rogue. The graphics are Flash-based, which isn’t a good thing, at least here. However, the game’s strong point is its world -- the Dragon Fable world is ironic and funny, having a laugh at everything, especially the pitfalls of the RPG genre. Quests are also funny at times: has a quest ever asked you to turn over a pit toilet while somebody’s in it? Well, that’s a real quest in Dragon Fable. Even the plot is thrilling once it gets serious. You can also get loads of pets that aid you in combat. There are many opportunities for PvP and PvE, but Dragon Fable does steer towards mindless grinding once you get past level 20 or so.See Videos

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.See Videos

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

After level twenty, you are awarded talents that let you advance in skill attributes that help mold your character by specializing your class. Set up your own vendor shop to sell goods. The prayer system grants experience and sometimes rare items. Built-in events system and a robust and detailed game world.See Videos

Luvinia Online is a fantasy-themed 3D MMORPG with notable anime influences. Luvinia has the usual four races -- Elves, Humans, Orcs and Dwarves. There are more than the usual number of classes, though; you can play as a Warrior, Rogue, or a Magician, and each class gets two advancements at later levels. The game world is sizable, and you’ll find the many landscapes appealing to the eye (in contrast with the weak interface and its microscopic fonts). Combat is fluid, and click-moving helps when travelling longer distances. Luvinia Online’s PvP is more balanced than the PvP in most similar games: strategy actually means something in Luvinia Online, whereas other games are often gear-centric. Pets and social features are here, too. Luvinia is rather new, so there are fun events and competitions for players. And even without them, the game is worth a try.See Videos

Mabinogi is a 3D MMORPG fantasy-themed game with cute, anime-style graphics. The game’s world is quite unique, combining the elements of social games and those of RPGs. There are an awful lot of things to master for a beginning player (the eccentric combat system; fishing minigames; cooking; and even composing music if you like), but Mabinogi has a very helpful community for a F2P game, and skills are easy to use once learned. You’ll especially like setting up campfires where you and fellow players can engage in lively conversations under the night sky. However, there are quite many paid features in this game: pets, character resets, and creating new characters costs Nexon gold.See Videos

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.See Videos

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.See Videos

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.See Videos

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.See Videos

Remnant Knights is an anime-inspired, school-themed MMORPG. Choose from two factions -- Dragon Academy and Owl Academy -- that train knights (players) of six classes. The game has a cool soundtrack (if you don’t hate j-pop) and cute graphics that stay true to the anime genre, just like the story does. The combat is fluid and fun to watch. Remnant Knights has everything the usual MMORPG has – PvP, guilds, pets, etc., – but what’s fresh is that players can create ‘charity’ events that add additional money drops to other players’ loot. The game’s skill system is well-developed and new skills add fun even to the end-game.

A medieval fantasy-themed MMORPG, set in the mystical world of Telara. Players can choose from six races, 4 classes, and a whopping 32 sub-classes to customize their characters to the max. Many storyline-connected events happen in RIFT – players can defend cities from invasion, participate in guild quests, or simply explore the beautifully designed game world. 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.See Videos

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.See Videos

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.See Videos

Ultimate Naruto (UN) is a casual MMORPG set in the eponymous universe of the popular series. You step into the shoes of a Nin, Gen or Tai fighter and choose from two available characters of each fighting style. Later on players are able to recruit more powerful heroes like Naruto and Kakashi and fight side by side with them. Players are gradually introduced to other features like pets and PvP arenas. Combat, sadly, is fully automated from the ground up and players can skip it only if they pay. The game, although occasionally cluttered with character lookalikes, does look rather pleasant, sporting vivid, colorful graphics that pertain to those of the anime. The story can keep you captivated but the players’ lack of control combined with other flaws—like having so little to do!—drowns out the few good things there are about this game.See Videos
