A hack-n-slash MMORPG with a storyline revolving around Celtic mythology. Choose from five characters – Lann (DPS warrior), Fiona (paladin), Evie (mage/support), Karok (tank), and Kai (archer) -- and hack away at the well detailed world of Vindictus. The Source engine, also used for Half-life 2, allows you to interact with the environment on a greater scale than in virtually any other MMORPG. The game’s combat system is the cherry on the pie: you can slash your opponents with practically anything, be it the kettle on the floor, the monster’s helmet, or the broom which just happens to be lying around. Instance-based play (the cities act as hubs and trade centers) offers solo and co-op opportunities; PvP is also available, both in dungeons and arenas.See Videos

War Thunder is a dogfighting MMO title developed by Gaijin. Players select an airplane and duke it out in one of the three game modes: team versus team arcade, historical battles (recreations of World War II battles) and deathmatches. There are a number of plane types, such as bombers, fighters, assault planes and others. Each country has its own unique planes as well as abilities, and every plane is flown in a unique way. The combat is intense and quite realistic � e.g., players can one-shot enemy planes by killing the pilot. The game manages to be accessible for beginners while allowing more experienced players to find new ways of gaining the upper hand. The graphics are stellar. Each and every map looks amazing, and plane models are intricately designed and sometimes outright beautiful. Definitely a must-try for anyone who loves planes and World War II history.See Videos

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.See Videos

WarFlow is a browser-based MMO strategy game with a fantasy setting. The player can choose from three factions in a world reminiscent of ancient China. The combat is instance-based, and Legion-vs-Legion play (PvP) is unlocked at level 10. Although the actual combat is boring, the preparation brings real strategy to this game – you have to tinker around to find the best possible formation, unit combination, and equipment for your heroes. Social play is greatly rewarded – you can finish groups of NPC monsters a lot faster if you recruit allies for the task. Obtain silver (the main resource) by levy and move up the legion ranks within your own city.See Videos

Warframe is a 3rd person shooter MMO with RPG elements. Become a space ninja by donning a titular Warframe suit. Shoot the big guns, walk the walls, and slide towards the enemy on your knees in order to slash him in half with a katana. The story takes place in the solar system and, even if it�s not a very important part of the game, it presents a solid mix of aliens, zombies and humanoids. Warframes are, as it was said, ninja suits. Each of these has special abilities that define the wearer�s combat role. Warframe sports huge computer-generated levels that are best played through in co-op. Players can craft items by purchasing blueprints and finding their components, or alternatively buy the weapons and warframes for hard cash. You should probably try Warframe. Despite that many condemn the slow pace of acquiring new gear (as well as its exorbitant pricing), the gameplay more than makes up for it. There�s just something strangely addictive and adrenaline-pumping in this game, even if it can be unappealing on paper.See Videos

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.See Videos

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.

Wartune is a turn-based MMORPG with a fantasy setting and some RTS elements like city management. The backstory, as well as graphics, borrows a lot from Blizzard’s titles – the very first monster encounter is a ‘Tauren’ and the game’s locations are at times identical to those of Diablo. There are three main character classes with well-developed skill trees. The game world is quite beautiful, and exploring it offers hours of fun even if it can be made overly easy with the auto quest feature. The game’s gear-based combat can sometimes be confusing when, for example, thousands of units are represented by at most two; but visuals are impressive. Dungeons, bosses and PvP arenas add to the sometimes bland and derivative gameplay.See Videos

Wizard 101 is a colorful MMORPG designed for kids. There are seven classes which are actually different branches of magic the new wizard can choose from -- Fire, Ice, Storm, Myth, Life, Death, and Balance. The game world is humorous and filled with witty quests. Wizard 101 features parent accounts that allow parents to control their children�s accounts; for example, parents can disable incoming messages for their child's account. The combat is card-based and requires a lot of strategy as it�s important to get a well-balanced card deck. Altogether, Wizard 101 offers a great experience even for gaming veterans, but the paid features offer too much content for �pure Free2Play� to be viable. The game�s a great gift if your kids fancy Harry Potter.See Videos

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.

World of Warplanes
World of Warplanes (WoW) is a WWII dogfighting title from the developers of World of Tanks. The basic gist of WoW is bringing World of Tanks into the sky. The featured airplanes are historically accurate, as are their upgrades. User experience is on par with today’s standards, sporting upgrade/setup presets and other features that ease newcomers into the game. There are many options for customization and great depth of gameplay dynamics – for example, a plane flies very differently when equipped with machine guns instead of bombs. The graphics are nice with attention given to detail both in the landscapes and the planes. There is occasional lag, however.See Videos

World of Warships
Relive the legendary naval battles of World War II in Wargaming's action-packed World of Warships. Command the era's most destructive implement of warfare – the naval warship – and lead your team to domination. As with Wargaming's earlier historical combat MMO World of Tanks, World of Warships features tier-ranked vehicle and technology systems. The game has four ship classes to choose from. Destroyers are the smallest ships and function as stealthy scouts and torpedo-launching ambushers. Cruisers are versatile ships, capable of providing reliable shelling and anti-air defense. Battleships are slow, heavily armored juggernauts that can deal massive damage at the cost of low accuracy and lengthy reloads. Aircraft Carriers are unique in that they send out airplanes that can scout quickly, engage enemy fighters, and harass ships with bombs and torpedoes. Customization is available for all ships in the form of different equipment modules. Ship captains can also be trained in a variety of skills to increase the performance of their commandeering. World of Warships's gameplay is very similar to Wargaming's other MMO offerings. Teams start at opposite ends of a sortie map and scout their way to enemy contact. Afterwards, bombardment commences. Coordinated teamwork is essential in achieving victory, as going "Rambo into the fray" will most likely result in getting sunk quickly. Overall, World of Warships is a solid, graphically-pleasing, historical naval combat MMO with the same, tried-and-tested depth and polish as you would expect of the Wargaming devs. Give it a shot if you're hankering for some good, old-fashioned naval warfare.See Videos

Zombie Slayer is an addictive strategy/RPG Facebook game that deals with the strategy of killing zombies. Players start with one of eight different characters, and deal with zombie outbreaks in the United States. Zombie slayers can also fight other players and bosses. There is no actual combat (everything is text-based), but fighting other players can be quite hard. Social functions offer bonuses to those who add friends to their zombie fighting squads. Players can purchase a number of cars, weapons and equipment which add to their stats (you get 5 stat points per level); but the best weapons, of course, are for those who buy them with UN coins -- the game’s premium currency.See Videos

Zombies Ate My Pizza
Zombies Ate My Pizza is a top-down 2D shooter by R2Games. Fight your way through ever growing hordes of pizza-hungry zombies with numerous weapons, guided by the smell of the delicious, cheese-topped crust. Now you probably aren’t looking for a story in a game with a title like this, but just so you know the pizza theme isn’t really important here. The dialogues feature silly humor that doesn’t quite hit the mark, but the younger players may get a few laughs out of it. Players run through rather repetitive and short levels of zombies that attack you melee, from afar, or with special abilities. The combat is rather fun and there’s a lot of handholding until the later levels when there’s suddenly none. Although the design of the levels leaves a lot to be desired, the decent, one might even say unique graphics make running through them an enjoyable aesthetic experience. If PvP weren’t automated, ZAMP would be much better. To R2Games’ credit, this title doesn’t require the player to pay up to have a decent chance in becoming a top player; on the other hand, it doesn’t really make clear why a player would want to.See Videos

Zombies Monsters Robots
Zombies Monsters Robots (ZMR) is an amusingly self-conscious MMO third-person shooter with lots of zombies, monsters, robots and some laser-shooting dinosaurs as well. ZMR features numerous game modes so excitement is constantly maxed out. It has intense combat and tactical gameplay—in some modes, at least—with cover-based shooting against ranged enemies. Players have to be careful as they have a limited ammo supply. There’s a multitude of maps, weapons and player models as well. You can play co-op or compete with others to meet countless waves of monsters or duke it out in a deathmatch. Weapons can be customized, and boss fights are quite random, making every encounter an adventure (or a nightmare, if you’re out of luck). Updates are released each month and feature ever more ridiculous monsters, like shark tornadoes or augmented orcs from World of Warcraft. ZMR can be very enjoyable with friends, but when you get paired with high-level or paying players it gets challenging. Furthermore, ZMR encourages griefing as players can pick up ammo that isn’t theirs, and my, ammunition does appear to be rather scarce in this game.See Videos

Arcade-style fighting with a story based on an underground fighting club turned bad. There are six characters and two classes to choose from. The two types are called Street and Ground fighters -- with a variety of styles to choose beneath that. You move with the arrow keys (no WASD or click-to-move option). 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. The English translations aren’t that great, but the combo-oriented gameplay is fun and easy to get into.See Videos
