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.
