Grand Voyage (GV) is an RPG/Commerce game set in the Age of Exploration. Players start with a basic ship and slowly work their way towards obtaining new, sometimes fantastic means of transportation like the submarine of Jules Verne. The main activity in Grand Voyage is buying goods at one port and selling them off at another, which brings about much fun due to the game’s monetary system, resembling that of real markets. Now the downside. Battles and quests are automated; the story doesn’t stand a chance; the cluttered interface is scarcely legible. Historical accuracy can be found in word not in deed: for example, Athens was but a small village during the Age of Exploration, definitely no thriving port; furthermore, you can’t ‘explore uncharted waters’ as the ads tell you; etc. GV has some fun stuff for a casual title, but unless the topic really interests you there are better games to play.See Videos

Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2 is ArenaNet and NCSoft's sequel MMORPG to 2005's highly acclaimed Guild Wars online game. Set in the world of Tyria, a land of fantastical creatures and mysterious magicks, Guild Wars 2 takes place 250 years after the first installment, in a tumultuous period when the Elder Dragons have begun their reawakening. Together with the members of Destiny's Edge, a group of powerful adventurers, the player must face the incoming onslaught of the Elder Dragons and their hordes, and save Tyria from the brink of destruction. Guild Wars 2 features five playable races and nine distinct classes (professions) at character creation. There are no dedicated healer professions in the game, so players are encouraged to mix their party compositions to find the most suitable setup for an encounter. Combat in Guild Wars 2 is fast-paced, with an action-oriented slant. Players can evade attacks using a built-in dodge mechanic. Skills are profession-based and weapon-specific, though, players can switch to an alternate weapon during combat to access a different skill set. Players only have a limited number of skill slots, which is a refreshing change from the usual "skill pianos" (multiple hotkey bars) common in full-blown MMORPGs. PvE content is story-driven, with the player going through the story in their own unique way via the "Personal Story" system. Zones have timed "Dynamic Events" where players cooperate to complete specific objectives for rewards. World bosses spawn in certain maps as well, rewarding players with loot for a successful battle. Guild Wars 2's PvP comes in two forms - Structured PvP and World VS World. Structured PvP has different match types and gives participants equal access to top level equipment and skills to even the playing field. World VS World is an ongoing battle between three game servers that takes place in one massive battleground with multiple objectives. Overall, you can't go wrong in choosing to play Guild Wars 2. It's free to play (but you'll have to shell out cash to access the latest expansion content), has meaningful, story-driven PvE content and highly competitive PvP modes. It's very polished in all aspects and has a stable community of players in its following. Don't hesitate to give it a try if you're looking for a quality MMORPG that's worthy of your time and money.See Videos

HearthStone: Heroes of Warcraft
HearthStone is a collectible card game by Blizzard. It’s set in the Warcraft universe. Players compete with the AI and real enemies with their deck of cards, striving to acquire better ones and build their deck. Players choose from nine classes that can be found in the company’s famous MMORPG. Its lore blends well with World of Warcraft and of course the title is well-polished like most Blizzard titles are, featuring great graphics, an easy-to-use interface and unique sounds for each card. The gameplay is simple yet allows for all sorts of tactics and mind games--it’s definitely a lot more exciting than that of most similar titles. HearthStone has an arena mode where players compete for cards and gold in a streak until three losses. Legendary cards are hard to come by, and although these can be a game-changer, acquiring them is much more difficult than buying $20 worth of card packs. HearthStone has a lot of staying power, considering its polish and the well-established lore. It’s definitely not of the ‘pay-to-win’ type and it, like all good titles, has simple ground rules that lead to complex scenarios; winning games in HearthStone requires, above all, skill and dedication.See Videos

Heroes In The Sky
Heroes in the Sky is a dogfighting MMO, set in World War II. Choose from two factions (Allies and Axis) that engage in faction battles -- aka Occupational Wars -- and level up to unlock new gear. The game features over 70 flyable planes and numerous missions for players of all levels. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but that doesn’t take away much from strategy. Heroes in the Sky has four plane types that spice up the gameplay with extra tactics. For example, bombers can bomb ground targets, but gunners can heal and revive fallen allies, etc. There are also numerous events for competitive players. Players can customize their planes and upgrade them – thus, the game features something of a crafting system. The only downside is the rather large PvP bonuses for players who purchase extra gear.

Illyriad is a fantasy MMORTS played in the browser. Choose from four races, establish your city, train troops and research new technologies to establish your rule in the game world. The developers place a special emphasis on gameplay depth, by providing over 290 research options, detailed diplomacy, and tournaments that keep the game fun. Along with player-driven trading, the game also introduces military strategy to a degree scarcely present in other MMORTS games – for example, terrain and troop types actually influence strategy in Illyriad. If you like the genre, there’s a very good chance you won’t be disappointed.See Videos

Fancy yourself a great emperor of a thriving civilization? Or maybe a pillaging warlord, leading your legions to glorious battles? Then Imperia Online is right up your alley. Imperia Online is a browser-based, strategic empire builder MMO set in the Medieval period. You are the ruler of a small province, tasked to develop its economic and military might. Practically, like in most empire building games, that means improving your province's infrastructure over time, all for the sake of building up your military. To fully participate in global warfare and politics, the game encourages you to join player-run alliances. The gameplay doesn't stray much from the usual formula of online empire builder games, so if you're a veteran of that genre, Imperia Online won't be too much of an unfamiliar territory to cover. For the newbie, the lengthy tutorial does a thorough job of introducing the core gameplay systems. Graphically, there's not much to look at, but the visuals definitely have a medieval atmosphere to them. The interface can get overwhelming for a new player, though. Casual players will find little use for the game's cash shop offerings, but hardcore gamers will definitely need to invest some money if they want to play at a competitive level. That has always been the case for games like this. As far as modern MMOs are concerned, Imperia Online isn't a ground-breaking or stand-out game. It's a decently polished empire builder, though, and it's still going strong 10 years after it launched.See Videos

Inferno Legend (IL) is a 3D fantasy RPG/MMO, played in the browser. Upon assuming a role based on one of the five demon classes, players pledge their loyalty to the dark lord and strive to drive ‘the just’ from the instanced game world. IL features a nice story that pertains to the biblical ‘creation wars’ between the good and the never-well-to-do angels. Right off the bat interesting combat features are introduced, like the Faith variable that gives players an edge depending on how the dark lord is disposed towards them. The excitement wanes, however, upon realizing that the combat can be controlled in a very limited manner. Furthermore, even if alliances can be formed and PvP is available, player interaction is scarce—this might have to do with IL being a mobile title as well. Even though the storyline is short-lived, additional challenges are available to players wanting to spend more time in-game. Overall, IL could definitely become a more lovable title. It does have the trappings of one at least, boasting vivid graphics, a unique storyline and some quirky innovations. As of now, however, it falls short of players’ expectations with the UI problems, bland combat and complete lack of player interaction.See Videos

Infinite Crisis is a MOBA set in the DC universe. As of now it features 20 heroes with four active skills as well as one passive skill, but many more are sure to be added as the game matures. What’s interesting is that in IC there are some game modes altogether new to MOBAs. For example, the map called Gotham Heights has a cannon for spawning drones (the cannon can be used strategically to great effect); maps have destructible stuff in them, which allows for building hidden pathways; and so on. However, Infinite Crisis is still very much rough around the edges. For example, different items look alike, which makes shopping confusing and slow. There are of course balancing issues and occasional bugs. But what we have here looks promising, and especially promising to those who like playing superheroes.See Videos

Infinite Realms is a sci-fi themed MMO strategy game, played through Facebook. Players have to build production structures, upgrade their outposts, train troops and recruit heroes to conquer new areas, build alliances and fight both player and computer enemies (mobs). Although the game doesn’t offer much originality, it is the sci-fi setting that has its appeal. If you’re one for stories, the game offers "mission text" for each mission you’re given, and the missions are daily. Infinite Realms is by no means a game that could earn the title for ‘most innovative Facebook game’, but it’s playable and has a somewhat small but friendly community.

Infinity Wars is a MMO collectible card game (CCG) that was crowd funded via Kickstarter. As far as the game format goes, IW has the standard trappings of a CCG, offering seven card decks, each of a distinct faction and requiring a distinct play style. It features several innovative card game mechanics that make it stand out from the pack. Furthermore, IW boasts a single player mode that eases players into the game’s intricacies that can take quite some time to master—however, the fact that they’re there makes it much more interesting in the long run. The combat is powered by a zone system where you have to be careful to balance and move the cards through different zones, featuring a ‘command zone’ where you can place cards to start the game with. Lastly there’s a morale stat that depletes as cards are destroyed, thus discouraging mindless burning of cards. Infinity Wars is a better CCG than most, some say even better than Hearthstone. It looks and plays great with vibrant card animations that come alive in 3D. Its mechanics ensure that IW has a staying power, and overall the game can certainly be deemed a success, especially given that the developers aren’t a billion-dollar company.See Videos

Kingdom Rift is a browser-based MMORPG from R2Games. It features a vivid and beautiful fantasy world that’s dulled by autocombat and a lack of real challenge. As it is with R2 titles, the first thing to ask is whether there’s something unique to find here. As you reach level 20 (in ten minutes or so), you start to see that there isn’t, but it isn’t all bad either. Even though stuff is being thrown at the player for no good reason—you acquire a mount in, like, three minutes—and you can run around clicking ‘Accept’ and ‘Hand in’ and watch your character level up just like that, Kingdom Rift is also beautiful and atmospheric. There’s also some sense of progress as players play through the story in seven stages. Strategy isn’t that important as combat can be computer-controlled, plus it’s decided mostly by battle rating, which for all practical purposes replaces a character’s stats. Kingdom Rift is better than the average R2 game. Whether it makes it fun enough to play, that’s up for debate. You should, however, at least take a look at it if you liked Diablo and like watching your character grow, even if you don't play much of a role in the process.See Videos

Kingdoms At War
Browser based strategy war game set in a fantasy setting. There is also an app for your iPhone or iPad. What sets this strategy game apart is the player-versus-environment quests so you aren’t required to continually battle other players for extra gold that you need to build your production buildings (which aren’t cheap to set up). You resources are primarily gold, trained combatants and spies. Use your spies to Scout your enemies defenses, Steal gold, or Assassinate enemy troops while they are sleeping. Real-time attacks and espionage take place in the form of a live news feed, allowing you to respond quickly to actions taken against you. Choose your allies wisely and join a clan for safety. The game offers a well designed interface and strong community interaction. The name of the game is expansion. Grow your kingdom into the most powerful in the land.See Videos

Kings and Legends
Kings and Legends is a card trading game with some city building elements. It’s played in the browser. Players start with a measly deck and try getting new, better cards to duke their opponents with. Four classes and card types add greatly to the game’s diversity—and so does the lane fighting system. There’s also a storyline that can keep you interested, especially since you can get new cards in story-related PvE. The game’s city building aspect is important as it can help you get better cards. Group battles are available as well in addition to regular PvP card duels. Each player has a hero that can use skills, and the game is over once one of the heroes is dead. The game manages to mix RPG, strategy and card game elements into one coherent mass. High-level players will have to compete for godlike cards, which are very rare unless bought.See Videos

Kings Era is an MMO strategy game with cash prizes. Choose a resource-specific class and endow your city with buildings, troops and heroes. Kings Era has some quirky innovations that spice things up—building times are slow, but you can level up your heroes with board games or hunting (it’s in 3D! 3D!) while you’re waiting. The main emphasis here is on competition as servers last for up to 9 months until a winner surfaces. If you’re lucky you can loot barbarian camps and cash in rare items. Alliances are allowed and encouraged but at a certain point you’ll be left to your own devices. Paying players will have much better odds to score some treasure and perchance even battle for the grand prize. However, if you can convince some friends to join, who knows—maybe it’s friendship, not money, that has a better chance in Kings Era.See Videos

KingsAge is a strategy MMO set in medieval times. Players take control of a village, expand, form an army, and gain loyal followers to make a name for themselves in the world. This strategy plays similarly to Ikariam or Tribal Wars, but KingsAge doesn’t seem nearly as populated, and the beginning of the game feels somewhat slow. Just like in the games mentioned, players can hold quite a number of villages -- the management of which can get a little time consuming. To do the game justice, however, it should be noted that KingsAge, with all its weaknesses, is a fun war strategy where collaboration (and other, more violent forms of interaction) with other players becomes more rewarding past the slow start.See Videos

Knight’s Fable is a browser-based MMORPG set in an anime-inspired fantasy world. It features a rich game world and a rather casual gameplay. The game features four classes, two for each sex, but the character can be changed later on while keeping the stats. Knight’s Fable requires the player to click for quests and skill upgrades (as well as the various side activities like fishing, clearing dungeons, and escorting cargo), but the rest of the game happens automatically. Most of the player’s success is based on the Battle Rating, gained by leveling up or finding/enchanting equipment. The story, once it eases out of the numerous damsel-in-distress scenarios, actually captivates and is light enough not to overwhelm. Of course social features like pets, parties and the likes are featured here as well. Even though one might deem Knight’s Fable to be a needless addition to a vast array of similar games, it’s actually better than most of the pack. The story is decent, the game doesn’t push you to buy anything, and last but not least there’s just an abundance of things to do.See Videos

League of Angels
League of Angels (LoA) is a browser-based fantasy MMORPG with turn-based combat and ridiculously beautiful artwork. Players choose from one of two classes and walk about to get to know the gameï¿½s mechanics and the eclectic lore of the League of Angels world, helping angels regain their former glory by setting them free from the dark forces that haunt them. The freed angels become valuable battle companions. Thereï¿½s an abundance of things to do (crafting, quests, dungeons and PvP), and although the combat cannot be controlled in the battlefield, a good formation can beat a stronger opponent. At later levels, however, players may find that they cannot do much daily besides two or three quests, all due to an annoying stamina system. For what itï¿½s worth, LoA also sports detestable amounts of fan service. On the one hand, LoA plays just like Wartune and similar titles, the likes of which have sprung up like mushrooms after heavy rainfall; on the other, it has some interesting features like the boss board games. Plus the PvP is quite exciting, as are the graphics. LoA might very well prove to be a disappointment, but it does have its strong points.See Videos

Legacy of Discord
From the publishers of the League of Angels series and Magerealm comes Legacy of Discord: Furious Wings, a 3D isometric dungeon crawler similar in style to Blizzard's Diablo 3. Players begin their quest for shiny, legendary loot and eternal PvP dominance by selecting one of three available gender-locked classes: the giant-sword-wielding Berserker, the speedy Bladedancer or the spell-chucking Sorceress. Combat is graphically flashy and fairly fast-paced, with a focus on class abilities and combo chaining. Equipment farming and refining are crucial aspects in Legacy of Discord and will determine how far you can go in both PvE and PvP endeavors. There's the usual PvE fare in the form of storyline quests and boss battle challenges, but these ultimately take a backseat to the game's PvP options, which are basically the game's selling point. PvP can be done in a 1v1 arena, a 5v5 team battle, or a massive scale guild wars setting. Competitive gamers wanting to stick around and participate in higher rungs of PvP must be ready with a substantial cash investment if they want to dominate their foes in the game. Otherwise, the experience going forward will be a long, frustrating uphill battle. Non-paying players beware unless they have a thing for endless grinding and battling against the odds.See Videos

Strengthen your forces by hiring a hero at the Inn or finding one in the surrounding forests. While heroes cannot fight alone, they gain experience and level up by leading your other troops through battle. Build stuff. Gather resources. Make alliances and loot other lands. Have fun.See Videos

Lord of Ultima (LoU) is a surprisingly fun strategy MMO, played in the browser. The story isn’t much, but its fantasy setting does hold some allure. The game starts with you holding a city with a set amount of resources, and using them efficiently is a hard task. LoU isn't especially original, as the basic gameplay isn’t different from similar games – Evony, Ikariam, and others -- at all. However, the game is full of opportunities for clever strategic tricks, for example, with the city layout or the army unit mix. The military strategy is thought-through and adds further depth to this game which can indeed become more than a simple time-sink.See Videos

Lost saga is a fighting/action MMO with cartoony graphics (think of Team Fortress 2 meets FMA) and an awesome, hectic gameplay. There are eleven game modes and over 50 playable heroes now, each with their own skills. You can level your heroes up and buy weapons for them. The developers eventually want to raise the hero count to 100. Some of the game modes are particularly fresh: soccer; crusade (dungeon PvE mode); and prison mode (ï¿½catch me if you canï¿½). The arenas are well-made and with their own quirks, and combat offers a lot of fun. Altogether, Lost Saga offers more than simple entertainment; other fighting MMOs, as fun as they might be, cannot compete with Lost Sagaï¿½s character/arena count and thus are much more likely to become boring in the long term.See Videos

Lucent Heart is a 3D fantasy MMORPG with an anime influence and loads of social features. Players can choose from two base classes – warrior and mage – and two sub-classes for each, at level 10. Players get bonuses and abilities that are dependent on their zodiac signs. The combat is somewhat dull, but social gaming is greatly rewarded through added experience gain for ‘couples’, additional accessories, etc. Quests flow nicely, and casual gamers particularly will enjoy the ‘find monster’ and ‘find NPC’ options. Overall, Lucent Heart is a nice game -- if you don’t mind the graphics. The story does have its appeal (you don’t see Greek mythology/anime crossovers much, perhaps not at all), the social features aren’t bad, and the extras like battle pets, and crafting, make Lucent Heart a hearty experience for anyone looking for a fun, casual game.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

The Holy City has fallen into the hands of the Demon Overlord and his infernal army. You (and everyone else in the game) are the last of the realm's protectors, and it is your destined task to save the world from the brink of total destruction. Magerealm: Rise of Chaos is an action-oriented, browser fantasy MMORPG mostly cut in the same fashion as others. If you're familiar with games from R2Games (League of Angels, Wartune, Monkey King Online), you'll feel right at home in Magerealm. The gameplay and core mechanics are virtually the same, aside from a few modifications here and there. The user interface is as clunky and cluttered as well. Players start off by choosing a class â€” out of three unique types â€” and then it's off to the mostly-automated newbie tutorial. Like in most browser games, completing each step rewards the player with fancy equipment and resources. That's basically the gist of the gameplay â€” auto-pathing your way to questing and grinding for loot and levels. PvP is a major part of the game, so most (if not all) players band together to complete content and events for the sake of server domination. Of course, if you really want to play at a competitive level, be prepared to shell out some real world cash, as this is *that* kind of F2P game. Overall, Magerealm is no doubt a cookie-cutter browser game, albeit with better graphics and effects than most. It has a sizable following, though, so if you're an avid player of this genre of online game, then don't hesitate to give it a try.See Videos

Marvel Heroes is an online action MMORPG aptly set in the Marvel universe. Players start with a second-tier superhero and lead it through labyrinthine levels from an isometric, Diablo-like point of view. Gameplay is solid with exciting combat and nice graphics. Other heroes ‘drop’ from monsters – or you can buy them. The characters appear identical – no matter what equipment you wear, it just doesn’t show. Watching ten Hulks smash a Mole Man goes from sad to depressing in no time. Of course, players can pay to make their character stand out. The game world is huge, but repetitive and with annoying spawns. If you’re not a fan of comic books, Marvel Heroes can be a disappointment. Furthermore, a disappointment that keeps begging for money -- like the drunkard who doesn’t remember that he asked you already, five minutes ago.See Videos

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.See Videos

Master X Master
NCSoft's Master X Master is a fast-paced MOBA-type game with both PvE and PvP elements in the equation. Players get to choose their heroes (called Masters) from NCSoft's stable of developed titles, such as Statesman from the now-defunct City of Heroes MMORPG, or Blade and Soul's Jinsoyun and Poharan. Players get to unlock new Masters and persistent upgrades for them through extensive PvE missions. PvP comes in the form of the standard 3-lane battlegrounds, a base control map, and a quick deathmatch mode that will surely please instant action gamers. Mini-games that train players with various twitch mechanics are also in the game as well. Master X Master differs from other MOBAs in that the control scheme is similar to traditional MMORPGs. Players must use the WASD scheme and must manually aim auto attacks as well as special skills with their mouse. Unique and central to Master X Master is its Tag Team system where players get to choose two Masters for a match and get to swap them at any time with a cooldown. This amusing feature makes for tactical match-ups, making battles frantic and fun. If you're hankering for a new, fun twist on the MOBA formula, as well as a fan of NCSoft's pantheon of characters, then Master X Master is definitely the game for you. The game recently concluded its final Closed Beta phase and will be launching this summer season for the North American region.See Videos

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.See Videos

Might and Magic Heroes Online
Might and Magic Heroes Online (MMHO) is a 2.5D MMORPG/Strategy played in the browser. It’s developed by Ubisoft and features the original HOMM world of Ashan. MMHO has the player choose between two classes of two factions (so there are four classes altogether) and battle it out with NPC and player opponents in turn-based battles that demand quite some skill. Players have a hero and some basic units to start with and later on get a town for producing new types of units. Players progress fairly linearly, with quests introducing them to the various parts of the game. The greatly detailed world looks stunning and atmospheric, with some random loot lying around as well; however, the detail sometimes takes its toll on the UI, which responds slowly at times. MMHO is definitely a title worth trying; especially so if the desktop Heroes of Might & Magic games saw you ladder with your friends for weeks on end. The cash shop seems quite democratic as well, as you can really do without it if you’re not dead set to reach the top ranks on your server. Other than the lack of player customization and the clunky UI, there’s surprisingly little bad that can be said about this game.See Videos

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.See Videos

Mobile Strike is a 2D base-building, PvP-centric online strategy game set in a modern war setting. Join forces with General Arnold Schwarzenegger, the game's celebrity endorser and persistent guide NPC, and bomb, blaze, blast your way to victory. The tools at your disposal this time, instead of medieval ballistas and magical spells, will be implements of mass destruction from the real world. Base building, hero leveling, equipment crafting, and alliance forging are all present in Mobile Strike, as it doesn't shy away from the tried-and-tested formula for this game genre. As such, veterans from other online strategy titles will find themselves at home with the game's mechanics and underlying systems. Newbies to the genre might get overwhelmed at first with the vast amount of options and menus in the game, but it won't take long for them to adjust to the not-so-steep learning curve. Like most F2P builder-strategy MMOs, Mobile Strike has pay-to-win elements and caters heavily to the paying gamer. Casual players will be hard-pressed to keep up with serious paying players. It can be done, but it's an uphill battle and will require even more dedication than the average hardcore player.See Videos

Monkey King Online (MKO) is an isometric MMORPG, played in the browser. It’s developed by R2Games and has many of the same features games as the myriads of similar games do. MKO plays itself, but you do have to hand in quests by yourself. Players choose from four classes and let the game take them to level 50 when things slow down and it becomes a grindfest. Playing for 10 minutes, the players get a mount and reach level 30. It’s fun up to the point where one realizes exactly why games like these have auto-play. The player is overwhelmed with features like mounts, ‘goddesses’, guilds, pets, discovering how to make the UI less clunky, and so on—all just to steer away from the fact that the game is incredibly poorly executed overall. There are, however, some that find games like these appealing. Either they don’t know better ones or have been hooked by other players, because you can, somehow, find you’ve joined a guild without realizing it. MKO is a cookie-cutter adventure through and through, but to its credit it can at least be made bearable by the community.See Videos

My Lands is a fantasy-themed strategy MMO. Players can choose from four races and engage in expanding their empire, conquering other territories, forming alliances, etc. Players earn real money through My Lands, by hunting Black Gems. In order to do that, however, players have to purchase a paid subscription. The game has some innovative features like mentorship, which encourages experienced players to aid newbies; moreover, My Lands promotes social play through social quests and alliances. The developers probably wanted to spark competition (and earn more money) by introducing cash prizes, and rightfully so, as it seems that the cash incentive has made the game fiercely competitive ï¿½ within the paying community, at least. (Update: as of April 2017, My Lands no longer allows players to withdraw cash prizes from the game.)See Videos

Mythborne is a 2.5D MMORPG game from R2Games, set on a fantasy world loosely based on Greek mythology. Even though R2 are notorious for copying their own (and others’) games, this one has more classes—five in total, and all have their role in combat—as well as player-controllable turn based combat, and that’s definitely a good thing. What’s very peculiar is that players start off with a mount, and hit stats are in the thousands at the very beginning. Graphics-wise, Mythborne does look pretty cool, but the screen is cluttered and the motion looks choppy. The story itself unfolds like it would in a single-player game, so even though the game does offer a lot of social opportunities there’s not much reason to take them. Overall, Mythborne offers more than a similar, generic title would, but it’s debatable whether that’s enough to actually play it. Although the story has some potential, it gets interesting only later on when the player has probably skipped most of it.See Videos

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 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

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.See Videos
