A Mystical Land

A Mystical Land

A Mystical Land is a browser-based MMORPG that raises the bar for Facebook RPGs. Choose from four classes and set off to explore the vast game world. The game’s quests are dynamic, and NPC dialogue is quite funny; however, the real treat is the vast crafting/profession system – you can actually play the game without killing any mobs… and make a bunch of stuff in the process! Players can also get achievements and rewards for doing them. The game’s graphics are nice and cartoony, but there can be performance issues in the city. A Mystical Land is admittedly directed towards casual gamers, but the game world is engrossing and vivid enough to offer something for the more serious players, too.

Age of Conan

Age of Conan

One of the most accessible and detailed free-to-play MMORPGs out there. AoC is developed by Funcom, the masterminds behind the boundary breaking Anarchy Online. Amazing graphics even three years after release, a great number of quests (for the later levels, too) and epic lore that stays true to the original Conan books by Robert E. Howard. Four ‘archetype’ classes – priest, soldier, rogue, and mage, each of them having three sub-classes. A unique, hit-direction-based combat system that requires direct involvement from the player. Quest and skill-wise, the game does seem to aspire to be a ‘WoW clone’; however, AoC clearly beats WoW in two aspects: the soundtrack and the abundant amount of gore. Loads of PvP and PvE instances, with PvP being a real skills test due to the complex combat system.

Age of Wushu

Age of Wushu

Age of Wushu (AoW) is a fighting MMORPG with considerable depth to it. 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.

Aion

Aion

Fantastically rich landscapes and highly developed quests in this fantasy role playing game -- at least at the earlier levels. Enter the world of Atreia where the Elyos and Asmodian races are battling for territory. Both races are flight-capable and your characters can achieve flight after level ten. There are four starting classes and six intricate crafting professions to choose from. There is a special type of arena called The Abyss where players from both factions can attempt to seize control over strongholds and defend them for more resources using a mix of player-versus-player and player-versus-environment tactics. There are plenty of instances for party assaults and even player-defined macros you can set up to customize your character�s combat. Make no mistake. You won�t be able to advance without PvP interactions, so if you are looking for a strictly PvE game, this might not be for you. The download is only a free trial, but well worth the time investment if for the visuals and excellent game mechanics alone.

Alliance Warfare

Alliance Warfare

Alliance Warfare (AW) is an MMORTS, played in the browser. It takes place in the medieval Land of Endless War and has players build and expand their kingdom, create armies and strive for world domination. The game is fairly typical as strategy titles go, but the community is vibrant and open. 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.

Allods Online

Allods Online

Allods Online is a MMORPG game quite similar to World of Warcraft. Choose from six races, two factions – The League and The Empire – and eight ‘general’ classes which vary slightly from race to race. The lore is well developed and mixes space/steampunk themes with regular fantasy. Allods has numerous quests that supplement the story. A unique aspect of Allods Online is the astral ship PvP where battles between player-controlled ships commence in the vast astral. Players also can play Goblinoball -- something quite like football, but with a live goblin as the ball. Allods Online offers an engrossing, well-developed experience for anyone who likes games akin to WoW, but doesn’t want to pay for it.

Ancient Summoner

Ancient Summoner

Ancient Summoner is an MMO trading card game with some elements from other genres. It’s very similar to Rise of Mythos and Kings and Legends. As such, there’s not much to say about combat besides that it’s welcoming for newcomers but complex enough to keep experienced players happy. 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.

Andromeda 5

Andromeda 5

Andromeda 5 is a spaceship action MMO that can be played in the browser. It features a vast array of customizable ships as well as numerous galaxies to explore; players acquire skills that further make their characters unique. More than 200 missions are available, not to mention the quite intensive PvP where players can participate in free-for-all deathmatches and team games as well. Andromeda 5 sports nice graphics and altogether there’s a surprising amount of content that will keep you busy for a while. The game does, however, fall flat when you consider that Andromeda falls well within the Eve Online-dominated spectrum of MMOs and when you take into account that the cash shop seems to give paying players a very real edge.

ArcheAge

ArcheAge

Enter the medieval world of Erenor, a land of peerless wonder and bountiful resources. Erenor is also a land torn by constant strife and conflict. The western continent of Nuia constantly wages war with the eastern continent of Haranya. While the mortal races waste their time in fighting for supremacy, ancient evils are awakening. Can the peoples of Erenor unite in time to defend their world from the coming onslaught?

ArcheAge is a "sandpark" (a hybrid of "sandbox" and "theme park") MMORPG developed by XL Games and published internationally by Trion Worlds. Featuring a zoneless world with three major continents and traversable seas in between, ArcheAge is a massive game that can be directly shaped by its players.

Crafting in ArcheAge is extensive. Players can craft equipment, cook food, build housing and furniture, farm crops, herd animals, and even design seafaring vehicles. The housing system allows players to place their buildings in certain zones as a persistent part of the world. Established guilds can claim vast tracts of land and build castles on them. These castles can be attacked and conquered by opposing guilds during siege events.

ArcheAge also boasts a classless system where players train skill sets that give them abilities. There are only ten skill sets available, and each character can only specialize in three at a time. Players can switch between specializations for a cost.

Combat in the game is mostly traditional MMORPG fare, with the addition of naval warfare. Players can engage in ship-to-ship combat, sea-to-land skirmish, or even battle sea monsters. The usual PvE options are present in the game. PvP offerings range from the built-in faction warfare to zone and event restricted PvP battles.

Summing it up, ArcheAge is a well-refined game with plenty of PvE and PvP content to offer. Aesthetically, the game does not disappoint as well. Its extensive crafting system and persistent sandbox elements are good reasons to play the game. If you're a fan of these game systems, then you should definitely give ArcheAge a spin.

Aura Kingdom

Aura Kingdom

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.

Battle Dawn Galaxies

Battle Dawn Galaxies

Battle Dawn Galaxies is a strategy MMO from the eponymous series, played in the browser. It differs from the other games of the series in that it has a sci-fi angle to it.

Players start a colony, covering their station with buildings, making spaceships, and forming alliances as well as conquering other players to gather the relics that are required to win the round. Players will enjoy the easy-going tutorial that does a great job of introducing the basics; the interface looks & feels good, plus the music is nice. Battles take place textually, so that aspect isn’t too well-represented. Diplomacy plays a huge role as well—one player summed up the peak of his learning thus: ‘learn to be vague enough so your words will not be used against you.’ Battle Dawn is somewhat ‘hardcore’ in that it has a loyal community and it can take quite a bit of playing to become competitive. It’s a long-term investment, one you should avoid if you’re not prepared to make the commitment.

Battle Dawn Galaxy definitely makes for a welcome addition among strategy MMOs: it boasts a small but vibrant community; the game flows smoothly; the mechanics make it a blast once the end-game approaches. It could, however, look better for this day and age.

Call of Alliance

Call of Alliance

Call of Alliance is a browser-based MMORPG by Ngames. Featuring lore highly reminiscent of Lord of the Rings, the game seems to be a half-hearted attempt to strip players of their money with a time-tested, formulaic game.

Players pick one of the three archetypal RPG classes and set off on an uninspired adventure. A ring is lost and the player, about to be destroyed by a villain similar to the lord of Mt. Doom, is saved by a gray-haired wizard. Combat is automated, and players can skip through the game practically without playing it (though you have to click in order to accept quests!). Two things are good in this game: it looks nice and the music is cute, however, if you look at the artwork in terms of the talent spent on something so bland, the impression shifts from boring to positively depressing.

Not to mention the possible copyright infringements, CoA falls neatly into a grim array of similar titles perpetually springing up in the market. Better avoid this game.

A turn-based online RPG/strategy game, played in the browser. Its game world is not unlike that of Warcraft, with Protoss from StarCraft somehow present, too. You start off with either a warrior or a mage from your faction, and there are three factions -- elves, humans, the undead -- to choose from. You then get access to a castle where you can train troops to conquer territories and expand your ‘nation’, but you’ll get to PvP after quite a while. Call of Gods has nice graphics and a pretty big game world for a browser-based game. The skill and trade systems are there, but don’t bring much new on the table.

Call of Thrones

Call of Thrones is a turn-based 3D MMORPG, played in the browser. The story is set in ancient China, in the age of the Three Kingdoms. The player can thus start from three locations and choose from three classes. Call of Thrones follows more of a lazy click-autorun-quest mindset while you get used to the gameplay. The real fun starts when PvP arenas become available at level 20 -- skills are plentiful and strategy isn’t just a word in Call of Thrones’ PvP, which also has guild wars and a ‘siege mode’. The game’s interface is quite cluttered, and so are the graphics -— but they’re bearable for a browser-based game. There are numerous exotic pets and mounts. The game features a well-detailed crafting system; however, that, along with the PvP, are the only things worth mentioning in Call of Thrones.

Castlot

Castlot

Castlot is a browser-based MMO strategy game set in 6th century Britain – the time of King Arthur and his knights. Players choose between two factions and are introduced to the fine points of the game with an interactive tutorial. Castlot’s story is definitely a strong point: players will often find themselves wondering what’ll happen next. The other features aren’t that good, though: bland RPG elements do little to add to the game’s overall value; Castlot is centered on battles, and players will be surprised at how boring these battles can be. Furthermore, the long wait times (which can only be reduced through the cash shop) have made experienced players infamously refer to the game as ‘Cashalot’. Not that it’s all bad to be fair: community features are excellent and so are some strategy elements like the ability to set traps, etc. The bottom line – it’s a diverse game that can be fun, but mostly isn’t.

Clash of the Dragons

Clash of the Dragons

Clash of the Dragons is a fantasy-themed MMO collectible card game. There are four classes, each giving bonuses to certain types of cards – that’s why players have to tailor their card decks to fit their class. The battle system is unique among this type of game; in Clash of the Dragons the cards act as a player’s hitpoints. The game sports some RPG elements, like the ability to level up and move around the game world in search for foes. Visually, the game is somewhat lacking in terms of card design, especially in comparison with real-life collectible card games. The gameplay is fun, however, and if you like the genre there’s a good chance you’ll like Clash of the Dragons for its unique spin on the meaning of the card deck.

Conquest of Champions

Conquest of Champions

Conquest of Champions (CC) is a collectible card game that features vibrant aesthetics along with a new, strategic spin on the classic CCG gameplay.

CC features three factions—elves, dwarves, and the undead—each having two controllable, battle-thirsty heroes and of course a separate card pool. Players get introduced to the nuts and bolts, but not every nook and cranny, of the gameplay during the six-stage tutorial, and then jump right into action. The combat system cannot be fully described here, but it must be said that it allows for a plethora of strategies as there are two bases plus one hero to annihilate, so sacrificing the main hero for minerals, or utilizing the terrain with counterintuitive moves (like in chess, really)—both are entirely doable in CC. Furthermore, players AND their cards can level up, providing a nice touch to the already fun mechanics.

CC looks like a keeper. Players don’t have to buy anything to have a shot at winning; the game seems complex (and intense!) enough to warrant at least a few hours of play; and of course the client both looks and plays quite stunningly.

The battles (which make up the core of Cosmic Break) are intense and fun to participate in. Single player is available, too, but coop (also available) is more fun than playing alone. Simplistic anime graphics. If you pardon the graphics, Cosmic Break is a fun game with its own flavor and a gameplay that without a doubt beats most of the similar games out there.

There are six types of resources; the ‘ideas’ resource is cool, as it stacks up, allowing you to research stuff when you’ve logged in after some time. PvP is optional, and the game doesn’t deliver much in the PvP aspect. There are plenty of quests available for leveling your character and acquiring gold and resources. Cultures Online might be an interesting game for an evening or two, but, as PvP is optional, it lacks the competitive aspect that makes browser-based games so interesting.

Cyber Monster 2

Cyber Monster 2

Cyber Monster 2 is a casual MMORPG played in the browser. It has all of the cliché ‘casual stuff’—automated combat and quests, ubiquitous pets and numerous community features for socializing while leveling up. Worth mentioning are also the benefits for cooperative players, e.g., being a member of an active guild will get you free stuff. Players can arrange their troops for upcoming battles - this allows you at least some degree of control. The fantasy-themed story is of little importance and for that matter little merit as well (still… at least it has dragons). NPCs have terrible English but at times catch you off guard with quirky humor—one NPC relates a tale about a heartbroken mermaid who lost it and turned herself into Taylor Swift, adding to this ‘What a tragedy story!’ There’s an impressive amount of content in this colorful game, but of course bear in mind that Cyber Monster 2 is a casual title with all that entails, good or bad.

Dark Swords

Dark Swords

Dark Swords is an isometric MMORPG, mainly played through text. The setting is a medieval fantasy world, and there are five races to pick from as well as several weapon types for your character. Beginners can and sometimes do become lost in the vast and detailed game world. Quests, PvP and skills are well-developed, and the developers display a consistent preference for layers of detail so rich that non-hardcore gamers may find them annoying. Pointedly, the graphics are virtually non-existent in this game -- the game could very well function without a graphical interface. Dark Swords doesn’t try to conform to the expectations of the average player, and that’s what makes the game enjoyable to some, but outrageously complicated to others.

The PC version runs smoother, but combat is much slicker on the PS3.

Dofus can seem quite complex at first glance, and that’s because it is: there are 15 classes, 22 professions, mounts, dragons, an elaborate crafting system and much more. The turn-based, somewhat restrictive combat also can seem daunting at first, but it quickly turns out to be fun and full of mind-boggling intricacies. The game has a remarkable longevity—the player’s level caps at 200 and then you can share experience with your guild members. The community is vibrant and active, sporting more than 2 million active players, plus there are many incentives to be social, like dungeons, guilds and player shops. As for allowing your kids play Dofus, there are a few cusses here and there, but generally the developers have made it safe for children.

Dofus charms from the get go and doesn’t let go—it’s fun, quirky and nothing short of being a treat for the senses. The free-to-play phase is quite restrictive, though, but you may find that it’s worth subscribing.

The game features three races that influence the paths you can take during the game. As mentioned, it’s a crossover that has the players defend their cities, which have to be planned carefully indeed. Dominator Battle becomes progressively harder, and once PvP opens at level 11 there are heaps of fun to be had trying to breach other players’ cities. To the game’s credit, heroes are controllable and you can create an army that follows the hero as well. Even though other areas, like graphics and sound, lack polish, the battles, including those played against the computer, are immensely fun and exciting.

There’s one thing that can ruin the experience for all but everyone: Dominator Battle is incredibly greedy. The concept is fun, but once you get asked for money the hundredth time, it becomes annoying in no time.

Doom Warrior is a gory, turn-based fighting arena MMO heavily influenced by the aesthetics of the Conan the Barbarian universe.

Doom Warrior has the player become a slave and fight his or her way to freedom by defeating other contestants. Be warned that the game contains not only gore, but nudity in the form of ever-naked breasts for the female models (apparently they hadn�t invented armor that covers the bosom). There are numerous beasts to fight and areas to unlock. The game is turn-based in the way that it allows attacking and blocking, mostly in turns. Blocks are made depending on what the UI tells you�it�s sad as the most important part of the game is dumbed down, really. The story is ultimately boring, but does a good job of preparing the player for the oh-so-serious battles to come. Characters are customized based on stats, and there are buffs even non-paying fighters can acquire.

Doom Warrior is fun in short bursts�actually, you can only play in short bursts after level 15 or so, as there�s a �stamina system� in place here�and the abundance of content ensures that you can play it for months upon months. The question of whether you�d want to remains open, though.

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.

So does the ability to create individual card decks. PvP gameplay is exciting, plus, as DoC boasts a huge player pool, finding an opponent is easy.

The game can be overwhelming at first, featuring about 100 skills and six talent trees, but these are introduced only gradually. PvP is instanced with arenas and battlegrounds available to the more competitive; it’s also a real skills test as combat is immersive and strategy-dependent. There are also 14 dungeons that offer plenty of co-op opportunities for the socially minded denizens of Eldevin. Crafting and trading opportunities are plentiful, with the game boasting 14 different professions. For what it’s worth, the story is well-written and the world of Eldevin seems quite sizable, providing an abundance of quest, secret and grinding opportunities.

Runescape is the first comparison that comes to mind when discussing Eldevin. Truly, Eldevin, even though a unique and polished game, can and does slip into the genre tropes established by Runescape and its successors. That being said, Eldevin still offers a rather compelling, even if at times tedious journey.

Ensemble Online

Ensemble Online

Ensemble Online (EO) is a sandbox MMORTS with RPG elements. Players start off in a village and gather resources to build their own cabin in the woods; fight monsters to level up; and quest to get all sorts of goodies. The game takes place on a huge real-time map.

Now, EO is still very rough around the edges. Patchy animation goes hand in hand with frame rate spikes. Quests are completely botched as you have to provide screenshots to the admins to turn in quests. Gathering materials is slow and building something is even slower. Netcode bugs sometimes leave you stranded a hundred squares from where you want to be, etc. Still the graphics are nice and so is character customization.

However, the crucial point is that EO is full of great ideas. Even now there’s a lot of fun to be had in this rather unique blend of the two towering game genres.

Epic Duel

Epic Duel

Epic Duel (ED) is a turn-based dueling game where you join one of two factions on planet Delta V and become a Tech Mage, a Bounty Hunter or a Mercenary, then train to acquire new weapons, participate in 1v1 and 2v2 combat and bring glory to your faction.

ED offers plenty of variety for a Flash game—players can customize their characters well enough; skills are plentiful as are items and achievements. Matchmaking is quick and, even though ED doesn't have a tutorial, it’s easy to grasp. 2v2 battles are the game’s salt—highly addictive, plus they do require some knowledge of both your opponents’ and your own skills.

That being said, ED is definitely a game to be played in short bursts, otherwise it gets repetitive because there are only two game modes. The in-game currency gives advantages to those who pay. However, as there’s always something to do in the ample game world, and as the matchmaking is that simple… logging in and fighting for a bit is just too easy to find serious fault with this game.

Eredan

Eredan

Eredan is an online card playing game set in the Eredan universe. There are two Eredan titles, and Eredan iTCG is discussed here, not Eredan GT. The game’s lore is not only well-detailed, but engrossing, clever, and ridiculous at times. Eredan has its own huge card deck that players use to compete. There are a number of factions, all of which have unique card decks and racial strengths and weaknesses. The skill level is Elo-based, which makes finding matched opponents a lot easier. A fun tutorial takes you through the basics, and sets you right off to explore the world where there’s certainly a lot to explore.

Eternal Saga

Eternal Saga

Eternal Saga is a cartoony MMORPG taking place in a world that’s being invaded by demons. Scary, but the cuteness of the graphics kind of balances it out. Three vanilla classes are featured – mage, archer and warrior. Leveling up is really fast, plus the game offers some well-developed sideline activities such as pet keeping and enchanting. Social features are represented as well – guilds, parties and so on. PvP can be done on a guild scale or in the arena. Eternal Saga has quite a few trappings of a casual game, namely auto questing and the relaxed atmosphere, but the game doesn’t play itself and gives players considerable control over combat and other activities. Altogether, this is a perfectly fine casual MMORPG which few will love but fewer still will hate.
