Age of Empires Online

Age of Empires Online

A classic RTS revamped into a classy MMO strategy game. At the beginning, you are given a Greek or Egyptian city that acts more like a MMORPG character than a regular city. There are three skill trees that players use to upgrade the economy, the military and utilities. You also store items within your capital city. To level your city up, you have to complete quests, either with friends or solo. The graphics are nice and cartoony. The quests are diversified, but the beginning of each quest is static – all you are given at the beginning of each quest is a ‘city vulgaris’ – a couple of workers and a town hall which you have to settle. The game lacks strategy for beginners, but PvP offers a real challenge, especially if you’re up against players who have purchased paid features.

Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare is Obsidian Entertainment (developers of Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity and Skyforge) and My.com's answer to Wargaming's World of Tanks, albeit with a more modern twist to it. Instead of playing around with World War II tanks, Armored Warfare lets you command post-1950s tanks, ranging from the lowly M41 to the fearsome M1 Abrams.

Armored Warfare's core mechanics are what you would expect of a polished tank combat MMO. You start off with a low tier tank and work your way up the vehicle tech tree through the game's PvP and co-op modes. Each tank type has its own unique characteristics, and can be further customized to fit the needs of the player. As in World of Tanks, your vehicles also have trainable crew members with their own unique talents.

Gameplay in Armored Warfare is more frenetic than in World of Tanks, given the technology level of the setting. The sortie maps are also smaller, which greatly speeds up the time for contact between two opposing forces.

Armored Warfare's graphics are great, though poorly optimized at times. If you have a computer that can run it smoothly at ultra settings, then you're in for a treat. The tank models, though visually pleasing, could use a bit more accurate detailing in terms of gun ports and viewports. The sound department is quite lacking in this game and needs to be beefed up for more realism and impact.

Overall, Armored Warfare is a pleasant experience if you're looking for a fast-paced tank battle MMO with a good deal of depth and polish. If you favor slower, more tactical tank gameplay, then it's off to the *other* tank game for you.

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.

Battlefield Heroes

Battlefield Heroes

Battlefield Heroes is a casual MMO shooter published by Electronic Arts. The game is part of the Battlefield franchise, but it’s free and has a much more relaxed atmosphere with cartoony graphics a bit like Team Fortress 2. There are two factions, both having three classes – Commando, Soldier, and Gunner – with distinct features. Vehicles, tanks, and aircraft, based on historic WWII models are also represented in the game. Players earn valor and hero points as they progress through the game; these points allow the purchasing of additional weapons and items. The matchmaking system matches players according to their skill, giving the game a newbie-friendly experience. If you enjoy cartoony graphics and a fast-paced yet relaxed atmosphere, try Battlefield Heroes.

Blood and Jade

Blood and Jade

Blood and Jade is a browser-based MMORPG set in the Warring States period of China. Players start off small and build their character, recruiting goddesses to fight by their side and meditating to level up abilities.

The game world is beautiful but doesn’t pose a challenge at all, taking the player through quests and combat automatically. Being able to lie back means, on the one hand, that players can spend more time arranging their abilities (which include martial arts) and looking at mounts; on the other hand, it makes for an experience that’s everything but immersive. The social aspects add greatly to this game: marriage, guild warfare, and the constant competition to rule the empire make Blood and Jade stand out a bit. The cash shop however doesn’t shy away from pointing out that they’re selling real advantages here.

Casual players will enjoy this game as they’ll be able to sit back and play Blood and Jade while doing something else. Players looking for something more immersive and fun should look elsewhere. Competitive players should be prepared to cash up.

Game of War: Fire Age

Game of War: Fire Age

Game of War: Fire Age is a massively multiplayer mobile 2D game cut in the same cloth as Clash of Clans and Vikings: War of Clans. It's a base-building, empire-builder strategy game that's solely tilted to cooperative PvP. A mythical ancient Greece is the setting for this game, so expect similarly themed structures, units, and heroes from the period.

The usual hallmarks of empire-builder games are present in Game of War: Fire Age. Players build structures, train troops, and wage wars against neighboring players. There's a hero customization system, equipment crafting mechanics and of course, an alliance system that facilitates massive team versus team warfare. War-loving gamers will feel right at home in this game.

Like most free-to-play empire strategy titles, Game of War: Fire Age is a "love it or hate it" affair. It will ultimately require players to spend some cash to be truly competitive in the game. The game's alliance and PvP-centric gameplay might not appeal to solo and casual players, but strategy and war-freaks will enjoy what the game has to offer - provided they're willing to invest some moolah in it.

Heroes In The Sky

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.

Imperia Online

Imperia Online

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.

Legacy of Discord

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.

MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online

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.

Mobile Strike

Mobile Strike

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.

Panzer General Online

Panzer General Online

Panzer General Online (PGO) is a strategic card game developed by Ubisoft. The game, played in a browser, is a part of the original Panzer General franchise that stretches back some 20 years.

PGO does a good job of introducing the players to the mechanics, which are similar to those of Might & Magic: Duel of Champions. PvP opens at level six, and until then the more experienced players will be stuck with the campaign. By doing the campaign, however, players gain in-game currency that can be used to purchase card decks. The three-lane combat system gives room for endless variety whilst keeping the matches short—against the AI a match is seldom more than 5 minutes, but a headstrong human enemy can keep you busy for 15 more. It must be said that PGO sports impressive graphics with detailed cards and boasts a simple yet powerful UI. The sound effects are also more than on par with what one expects from browser games.

It’s hard to find fault with this game, really. PGO seems really well-polished and unlike many such games doesn’t push the player to purchase anything. If you like card games and WWII history, you should probably try it.

Pirate Crusaders

Pirate Crusaders

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.

Planetside 2

Planetside 2

Planetside 2 is a MMO FPS developed by Sony Online Entertainment. Pick one of three factions and battle for control of the planet Auraxis. The massive battles, which sometimes host up to 600 players at once, will surely amaze you. Numerous vehicles, play styles and classes make the combat very diverse—still, somehow it never gets too chaotic. Co-op is important and adds to the game greatly. Play with your friends if possible as then each battle will become an engaging story. Although player and weapon models might seem generic, the environment is well-detailed and overall the game looks great (an up-to-date computer, however, is required to enjoy Planetside 2 without lag). Considering that games of this quality usually have a retail price, Planetside 2 would be worth playing even if it were ‘pay to win’. But it isn’t, which makes it all the more compelling.

Realms Online

Realms Online

AKA Regnum Online, Realms Online is a fantasy themed MMORPG. Choose your hero from three realms that battle each other tirelessly. Six classes and nine races to choose from; classes are race-dependent. A unique aspect of the game, Realm vs. Realm play, takes place in the “war zone” of the map where realms engage in war games, trying to capture their foes’ forts and castles to get bonuses for their realms or corrupt others for a time. Well-written lore and a massive game world. The graphics are rather outdated however, with landscapes often lacking in detail. The start seems slow, but the pace picks up on levels past 10, once you’re ready for PvP and have gotten used to the somewhat complex combat.

Red Fire

Red Fire

Red Fire is a strategy MMO with RPG elements, set during the Third World War where three factions, not unlike those of Command & Conquer, struggle for power. The graphics are also reminiscent of earlier C&C titles. The gameplay is far from perfect; besides that there are clumsy combat animations and short, bland campaign missions. There isn’t much to do in Red Fire, either; raiding other players is fun at the beginning, but the pleasure doesn't last. The base setup is interesting – it’s cooldown-based. Besides that, though, there’s nothing particular to note about this game – Red Fire isn’t especially good or bad, it’s just another typical title among many of this type.

Revelation Online

Revelation Online

Developed by Chinese tech titan NetEase and published by My.com, the Russian-owned entertainment company behind Skyforge, Revelation Online is an Asian-themed MMORPG that features massive, flyable, open world, frenetic, action-oriented combat, and a plethora of PvE and PvP options to keep the player engaged.

Starting players get to choose from six unique classes and get to fiddle around with their looks using the game's very robust character creator. Combat can be done via traditional tab-targeting, assisted action combat, or a hybrid version of the two. Some classes are best suited for certain combat schemes, so new players should read up before progressing further into the game.

The world of Nuanor, Revelation Online's setting, is breathtaking and features stunning vistas and landscapes. Fortunately for the player, they can explore the entirety of this mostly-seamless world with the game's flight system, which becomes available early on.

Leveling up in the game is quest-centric, with a heavy focus on daily quests and events. Missing out on these daily activities will slow down the player's progression. Upon level-up, players are awarded points which they can freely allocate to character stats that improve their class in different ways. Gearing up involves a lot of dungeon and raid runs on different difficulty settings. Costuming is present in the game, for those interested in further character customization. Gear crafting, as well as non-combat professions, such as Cooking and Fishing, are also part of the features, allowing for players to increase their character's versatility.

Avid "theme-park" MMORPG gamers will find Revelation Online to be a treat when it comes to things to do. PvP is quite robust as well, featuring duels, 3v3 arena battles, battlegrounds, instanced guild wars and persistent castle/territory sieging.

There's a cash shop element in the game, which mostly deals with costuming and convenience items. While paying players will see an advantage by purchasing these conveniences, the gap isn't really insurmountable by their non-paying counterpart. Essentially, it will only take the non-paying gamer a longer time to complete certain game milestones compared to the paying kind. Some gamers might be turned off at that prospect, but that's a common system in most F2P games.

Soldiers Inc.

Soldiers Inc.

Soldiers Inc. is a military strategy MMO, played in the browser. It was developed by the same people behind Total Domination, a strikingly similar title.

Soldiers Inc. plays quite like your average strategy MMO. Set in Africa of the turbulent year of 2019, the game has players start off with a square base, build it up, produce units and eventually wage war against other players or NPCs. The soundtrack fits the game perfectly, and the voice acting beats most Facebook titles, as does Mr. Black, the player’s cryptic and slightly menacing advisor. Largely the decision to skip or try this game depends on whether you value these kinds of paraphernalia, because otherwise there’s not much to discuss: it’s all been seen before, and too common to be interesting, at least to the veterans of the genre. Battles proceed as statistics, and are not visual; players form alliances for mutual protection; and so on.

To the credit of the developers, there are bi-monthly events where players can amass premium currency without paying, but overall the game falls into the ‘pay to win’ spectrum of F2P games. Soldiers Inc. is solid overall, but the standards for similar games have risen too much for it to keep up.

Star Conflict

Star Conflict

Star Conflict, in a nutshell, can be best described as World of Tanks in space. This space game shares a lot of similarities in game mechanics, features, and progression with the popular tank brawler. If you're familiar with World of Tanks, then you'll feel right at home in Star Conflict.

Instead of commandeering tanks from humanity's bygone ages of warfare and destruction, players get to pilot high-tech space-faring battleships... for more warfare and destruction. Players get to choose their faction and sub-faction at the start of the game, which will determine their initial ship choices and starting missions. There's a ton of ship choices, with varying roles in team play, and you'll have to slog through the grind to unlock them and their upgrade modules.

Combat is fairly paced and fluid, with multiple PvE and PvP modes providing plenty of gameplay variety. For the more competitive player, there's Guild vs Guild warfare where clanners get to vie for space territory.

Like World of Tanks, Star Citizen can get extremely grindy, especially when you're unlocking newer, more advanced ships and upgrades. Some of that grind, you can quickly alleviate by investing in the game's cash shop, if you're willing to sink in some real life moolah.

TF2 is a class-based first-person shooter, featuring nine classes – The Spy, Sniper, Demoman, Pyro, Soldier, Engineer, Medic, Heavy, and Scout, each with a distinct role and (often funny) characteristics and gear. The game sports classy comic-book graphics and offers casual fun to players who are turned off by the hyper-realistic graphics and solemn gameplay of titles like Battlefield and Call of Duty. Eight game modes, fifty maps, along with vibrant characters, fun collectibles and wild, colorful graphics make TF2 one of the richest free-to-play FPS titles out there.

Vikings: War of Clans

Vikings: War of Clans

Become a powerful Jarl and command your legions of berserkers for honor and glory in Vikings: War of Clans. Set in the tumultuous period when Viking kingdoms fought for dominance in the North, Vikings: War of Clans is primarily a player-versus-player empire-building online game. Band together with fellow warriors and join an ever-dynamic world of epic battles and large-scale warfare.

Vikings: War of Clans comes from Plarium, the seasoned strategy game devs behind Sparta: War of Empires and Stormfall: Age of War, so it's as polished as strategy games get. The usual empire-builder strategy features are present in this game. Jarls get to build structures, train troops, invest in research, and engage in specializations - all for the glory of their kingdom. There's also a hero system in tandem with equipment crafting mechanics. As always, player-run alliances are the cornerstone feature in games like this, and any newbie Jarl would do well to join an established alliance if they want to progress meaningfully in the game.

Like in most F2P empire-builder games out there, players must be ready to sink in some cash if they want to be competitive in Vikings: War of Clans. The way these online games are designed, non-paying players will always be at a significant disadvantage compared to their paying counterparts. Of course, players can opt to be casual in the game and play without spending a single cent. Just be warned that it won't be a pleasant experience, especially when battling against the hardcore, paying variety of Jarl.

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.

Warfare

Warfare

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.

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.

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.
