World of Warcraft


FEATURE Just, wow...to say this now, I am defently buying WoW on release date.


I'm in stress beta, played first day it was out and it is awesome.


Classes/races: So, pretty common races, elf/human/dwarf/gnome/undead/orc/troll and then the tauren. All are great, I made all of them so far, except the gnome (gnome punt! :P) My favorite being the undead. Each feals totally different from the other


The classes are great too, and like the races, each is day and night different from eachother. I made almost all the classes and my favorite so far being the mage.


Graphics: The graphics are geat, if you make a orc/troll you well have to go to echo island (make sure your high enough...pesky crabs attack you, and dinosour type things) it is beautiful. Each area for the races, except those combined areas. Are awesome, each one. I love the undead area, gives that spooky feeling. Some people don't like the cartoony graphics, but their great


Gameplay/General: The gameplay is great, for a stress beta it runs pretty smoothly, except a few lag spikes. I barely get them. Also, my favorite part was swimming to echo island, and being able to swim underwater and keep fighting :) I was so amazed by it, you'll have to try it


I give this a 9/10, fora beta, this is one..or is..the best beta I've ever played

Oz have a selection between the mouse and the keyboard to move around. You can go shopping around in the world of Oz and fish for underwater creatures to earn gold.



Graphics: Oz world has good 3D graphics for a MMORPG of its own game category. It has very detailed character and buildings, different wether conditions. It has cool effects too like the small wave circles created when something land in the water. The character is well animated with realstics features. Oz has different camera angles which could be adjust by the player but having some restrictions. Oz deserve a 7/10 for it's graphics, Oz could score a better mark if the camera views dosent have the restrictions and the posture of the characters sleep on the bed.



Sound: Oz has a variety of background music at different places of the game, the background musics are smoothing and relaxing to your game play. It also has effects sound like the casting of fishing rods and landing of them, swimming in the water, sitting down on the bench and many more.

Gameplay: Oz world like i had said earlier on that it encourages gamers to make friends around and had a virtual romace world. In the world of Oz, gamers gain gold by fishing different kinds of fishes which could sell for different prices sometimes in special ocassion gamers can earn more gold by attending events, gamers can buy clothes from stores and dress the way you wants, gamers can also purchase house, furniture, flowers and many other stuffs. Starting with a Citizen rank, gamers have to give flower to different people to Level up the rank, the higher the rank you gets this enables you to more varities of items. There are different towns and zones which you can explore with. Oz gameplay deserve a 6.5/10 as sometimes it gets pretty bored fishing fishes for gold you gotta find yourself a bunch of good friends which you can communicate well where the fun will begins.



Addtional Comments: If Oz has the funds to buy the patch from Korea, English Oz can be a much more better game than now, with new zones new stuffs it will be a brand new experince for every gamer on the run. This game is suitable for both male and female and for all ages. The downloading speed for Oz is quite fast, for me it just took me a couple of minutes.

Legend of the Green dragon-RevolutionX server


FEATURE Although, all these LotGD servers are kinda the same, they all are different also (most of them)


Gameplay: Pretty fun, nice selection of races to choose from, 8 races :) including the drow. Like most of the others, it as its funny parts too, heres an example: "Farmboy Vendayn has been slain in the forest by Coblynau
You know, Farmboy Vendayn really had it coming to him after all those things I said about his mom," commented Coblynau." Ok, might not be the funniest, I kinda thought it was. 7/10


Layout : The layout is pretty much like the main server LoTGD. Different buildings then the others, like a stat upgrade building for gems. 7/10


Overall : Funner then the other server I reviewed, more turns and quicker day times and good races, not many people play at the moment from what I can see, never see anyone on, although people do chat, but I like it :)

Legend of The Green Dragon Pyson Server


FEATURE There are alot of servers to choose from
this server Pyson as 50 turns per in-game day.
Graphics: It's a text based game, what do you expect? Do like the background so. Can't really rate this.


Gameplay : Pretty fun, funny to sometimes. Alot of turns to play. Once, I got a monster npc called"Bald programmer". Sometimes when you kill a monster it says something funny for killing it. 8/10


Sound What sound? Oh, I like my mouse clicking :)


Community : Haven't speant much time in this area, did ask a question and got laughed at. So, 3/10


Overall : Pretty fun, kinda like the other Legend of the green dragon servers. More "mounts" to choose from, which give you more power or other things, they cost gems and sometimes money to buy. Alot of turns you can use, which is nice. Overall I rate it a 7/10

Runescape II – F2P (Second Opinion)


FEATURE Runescape has changed alot since the last review, that's why I'm writing this.

-------Gameplay - 7 - The battle system is waaay too slow, not enough quests for F2P. All the abilities are great!

------Graphics - 6 - A little blockly, not much detail, but hey, it's a java game!

------Sound - 7 - Music is great, I mean it, but the sound affects aren't very catchy

-----Replay Value - 8 - It has a great replay value, but some poeple just quit playing it

-----Reviewers Tilt - 9 - I just love this game!

------BASIC SCORE - 8.0

------TOTAL SCORE - 7.9

EverQuest


FEATURE EverQuest is a very solid game, with a loyal fan base and over 500,000+ people have once held accounts since it started March 16th, 1999. For all the expansions, EverQuest runs for about 40$ off their website ( https://store.station.sony.com/game_index.jsp?gamecode=EQ ). Although it has a steep subscription price at $12.95 per month, ordering for longer amounts of time (3, 6 or 24 month) lowers the price per month by a few dollars.
Once you log into EverQuest you are surrounded by Tolkien-inspired characters such as the halflings. EQ offers many class/race combinations with 15 races and 16 classes. I chose to be a Halfling Warrior. As I first logged in I was surrounded by a slightly confusing and cluttered User Interface. After a few minutes of figuring out where buttons were at, I learned that EQ has a very interesting newbie help system, where all local merchants and other Non-Player Characters can be located by simply clicking on their name from a list. This is very helpful for new players to navigate. After equiping my newbie weapon and shirt (Yes they give you free food and backpack in the beginning too!), I departed from Rivervale and ventured out into Misty Thicket, the local newbie zone, full of bats, rats, goblins, orcs and other assorted monsters for fighting. I noticed relativly high frame rates throughout the zone and decent graphics. One interesting feature not seen in many MMORPG's is the ability to highly detail the facial features of your character down to the eye color. The sounds of EverQuest make you feel as if you are actually there, from the energetic tones of Rivervale to the intense sounds of the combat theme. Combat took very few seconds to grasp as I mastered the kick, bash, and taunt. I soon learned that when you died below level 10 you lost no experience and you did not have to retrieve your items from your body, but as you progressed you would. The players are very helpful and relativly mature. Within an hour of playing I was met by a young Halfling Druid who soon became my partner. We were in a group in which I was the "tank" and he was the healer. I personally thought the spell graphics were incredible looking. EverQuest is an always evolving game with many features that continue to pop up! Join a guild and raid Vox the Dragon or take a journey and master the art of smithing.

Graphics: 8 A little weak in some areas, but with Luclin Expansion the characters are nice looking.
Sound: 10 Hundreds of songs for each zone, however some get stuck in your head after a while!
Gameplay:9 Once you get the hang of it you become addicted, when Sony says "Your in our world now" they really mean it!
Overall: 9/10 Well worth dropping 50$ for, get the first 3 expansions for free and try it out for yourself.

Everquest


FEATURE This is my first review so don't bo to hard on the feedback

GamePlay: First of all I think the game play is awsem you can spend hours at a time on this game its good if you can find sum nice ppl so all and all- 7/10

Grapics: Not the best of the games out there I would say its not candy to the eye but it's Still allright graphics so I give it a- 6/10

Sound: The music is fine its not bad it's game music there isnt realy much I can say about it thats helpful but in my opinion it gets a- 7/10

Battle: The battle is quite enjoyable magic is fun ranged is kinda hard and expensive but fun the melee was good and u would entertain u for hours not the best I have seen tho so it gets a- 8/10

Skills: The skills in this were awsem and I personaly spent about 200 hours on this alone so for me its a- 9/10

Overall: To most big mmorpg fans this game is known as the crack of mmorpg in korea and place like that they have an everqquest mafia and it is THE MOST ADDICTIVE MMORPG GAME EVERMADE so I give it a- 8/10

City of Heroes


FEATURE No reviews in ALONG TIME, by me or other people, so heres one


Gameplay: In training, I tend to get map disconnected alot, but that only happens in training, no where else I noticed. I also tend to think im playing the full game the beta is so good, usually that doesn't happen 8/10


Leveling : I barely even look how much I need to level, maybe an occasional glance because combat is so fun, yes it as a level grind, like all mmorpgs. Powers are also great, great affects. 7/10
Enemies The mobs are also good, a little plain so, not much diversity, but im level 4, so I probly haven't encountered everything. The zombies are cool so, combat goes by pretty fast to 4/10


Missions are fun, at least to me, sometimes a little short, alot of fun so, especially when I get a sewer mission, that was really fun, more diversity in missions would be nice, maybe do a puzzle to get to another part of a mission you need to do, and make the "dungeons" bigger, they are kinda small. The stories are tons of fun so 6/10


Loot: Wth is everyone complaining about loot? I never see a hero find loot or anything from a mob, maybe an artifact for a mission, but thats all. Although their is loot, enchantments and buffs/heals act as loot N/A


Character creation: This was a blast to do, I found one template I really like that im gonna use when I buy full game, if I don't remember everything, I can try to make it similar. I never see a clone of me running around, everyones different since theirs soo many choices, one (or all of the best char creations in a mmorpg 9/10

Runescape2


FEATURE Wow...
I have to admit Jagex... you really outdid yourselves this time. The graphics are upgraded like mad. I was turned off from RS1 because there was never any updates for the free server, only members. My friend is a member all he talked about was the beta. i checked it out and its amazing. I'm hooked again... All the things me and my friends ever dreamed of adding, were added (exept ball and chain...) I dont usually like RPG's but not bad at all. Although i dont understand the point of runecrafting... Just buy the lousy runes from the shop instead of going through all that trouble with the talismans and all. Compared to other free MMORPG's i've played, this topps the chart. Good job!
