This is a place to rate and review new Mmo's that recently came out, or something you would just like to share. Seeing as a new mmo comes out just about everyday with closed betas, give some a try and post your review here.
Repetitive, but fun at first. Around mid-levels it's just pure grinding, and the other players are half the time pre-teen and quite annoying. But the costumes are cool, game doesn't take a strong connection to play, and overall a fun experience.
Very cutesy anime-ish. There is almost 0 difference in between characters, everyone looks the exact same since there is a very small inventory in the game. Potentially fun for a few hours, then it gets boring. Must play with FAST connection or you will not be able to get the main kingdom quests
This is a pay per month game, and pretty superb. I played for a free trial, and if I didn't play WoW so much at the time I would have subscribed. BEAUTIFUL scenery, great graphics, even running on slower machines, friendly community. The con is A.) you have to pay to play, B.) It's a fairly complex game, and takes a few days to really get the controls down. But really, if you can get your hands on a free trial, you will be addicted
(My review of) WoW
The big one, the big daddy of the MMORPG scene. Yeah, I have a level 70 character, and I walked away from the game. I played for a dialup connection, and still maintained smooth gameplay. Enormous world, millions of players, millions of things to see. This is a great game, but still flawed. The first problem is that you can't really do anything special in the game until you get your mount or some other form of faster travel, since hiking across Azeroth is an all day event (in real life). The economy in the game is also rather messed up from an exploit early in the stages of the game where characters made millions of gold and severely screwed up the trading system. So even the smallest resources in the auction house is ridiculously overpriced. Definetly worth a shot, but you may not see your family for a while.
Not quite an mmorpg, OGame is a fantastic strategic online game where you battle with thousand of other players across your Universe (server) to gain a high position and rule with and iron fist. While most MMOs are very hands on, play as much as possible, OGame is slower paced and meant to be checked daily while maintaining your fleets and defending yourself. Be warned though, once you get to high ranks, it gets faster paced. OGame runs in your browser, pretty much ANY browser for that matter, no flash necessary. Fantastic game for the person on the go, especially since there is no download necessary. The con is there are no fancy graphics, cutscenes, etc. But this isn't really meant for that sort of thing. Trust me, give it a shot you will not be disappointed.
Flyff (review by Azure)
Kinda cutsy, unoriginal costumes/weapons, everyone is a carbon copy of everyone else. The fights are a bit more fast paced than than other MMOs like world of Warcraft, but a lot less rewarding. The good news is that the economy system is intact and running well, and it doesn't cost 3 weeks of grinding's loot to get a new weapon. Another great aspect of this game is what the name implies, "Fly for free". Once you get to fly it's pretty fun, but the mid-air battle system is just awful. Still, it is rather fun to impress other players by flying low over their heads. It's a free MMORPG, so give it a shot and see how you like it.
City of Heroes/Villains (Reviewed by Azure)
Choose a side. Save the world of conquer, that's the question. You start out by custom designing, which has a medium-high level of customization. You also choose you're main power (depending on how your character got it's powers, there are different options. TRY THE ELECTRICITY!)Then you get into the game, and you learn pretty quick. Get a quest, stop a couple of bad-guys (or good guys if you're a villain). At a certain level, you get to choose a special power. Super-speed, flight, healing, etc. Now, the flying sounded pretty fun to me, until you learn that you need to level and upgrade the skill. Sure. You can fly. But at about a snail's pace. All in all a very enjoyable game to play, and there is so many different designs, costumes, and styles that you'll never meet the same person twice. The con? It's a monthly subscription game. Give it a shot, you may love it.
If any of you would like to write a review about an MMO you have played, psot it and I will add it to the Main post.
