Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction


FEATURE This game is or should I say was one of my favorite games.It has had many patches since it first came out.There are eight different classes you can choose from.And they are the quick amazon,silent assassin,deadly necromancer,fierce barbarian,holy paladin,nature loving druid,and spell casting sorcerss.Each class has a specific class set of items, but if the item is not class specific then anyone can use them.In patch 1.09 they had a lot of hacks come out but in patch 1.10 they deleted all the hacks and all the accounts that had them.

In regular Diablo 2 there are only four acts but in Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction there are five.Each act consist of five to six different waypoints that travel you instantly to the place.Each act has only one boss but many sub-bosses.The act one boss is Andariel,act two is Duriel,act three is Mephisto,act four is Diablo,and act five is Baal.There are many scams for that game you could fall for.In patch 1.09 people could rush you through all the acts and you could spend all your time leveling at hell cows.There are three difficulties in this game (normal,nightmare,and hell).

Overall i give this game a 5/10.

Conquer Online


FEATURE Conquer Online is a MMORPG unlike all the others. First off you get to choose between four different character classes. Do you prefer the high defense warrior,duel-weapon trojan,magic using taoist,or the quick archer? Before you can do anything you must gain some levels as soon as you start off before you can do other things.At level fifteen if you want to make some money but dont want to go kill monsters for it you can buy a pickaxe and go mine.There are four to five mines and each have a level requirement before you can enter but they get better dropping gold ore and gems.At level twenty if you find the love of your life on here, marry them.

There are also a lot of guilds on this game or if you dont like any of them once you hit level 90, make your own.The items in this game are quite deadly.The weapons range from swords to hooks and hammers.And you can upgrade all your items with a item called Meteor.That will raise the level of your weapon,armor,etc.And all items have a certain "quality" to them and they are normal,refined,unique,elite,and super.If you can get your hand on a super item, your item will look different from the others as it will have a special aura and be flashing.You have a chance to raise the quality of it with a dragonball.These are really rare to find in game but now you can purchase them from the official Conquer website.

The graphics for this game, to me, are good.Higher levels you must have a lot of patience as leveling will become horrid.The only other problem i have with this game is the constant lag.The game is always laggy and you will get kicked off sometimes.And they are always working on the server so about every other day you will be forced to log off so they can otherwise you stand a chance of losing data.But I think this 503 meg game is worth the download.Overall i give this game a 7.

RaceWarkingdoms


FEATURE RaceWarKingdoms is a text based game, play online with hundreds, (or) thousands of other people.


Graphics : The monster graphics are cool, but it is a text based game, so their isn’t much graphics to it. 4/10 (Only because it at as some graphics)


Sound I love the sound of my keyboard when typing and mouse clicking (No sound or music)


Players Looking for a good community, well, this isn’t the game for you. The players are rude , won’t go into details (Watch out from being scammed) 2/10


Gameplay Well, it’s a *click click click click* game, it does get boring after awhile, not much to it, you can craft, although that costs a lot of gold to do, so its pretty much useless 4/10


Kingdoms This is my favorite part of the game, although not much strategy into it, you fight monsters to get gold, then you can buy better fortification or more armies for your kingdom (5/10)

Overall Great if your bored, but not much to it, the players I find are rude (Don’t bother asking questions, you well be flamed) it isn’t anything special.

Legend of Mir


FEATURE Graphics

This game decent graphics, it looks nice, but nothing out of the ordinary. Also each area feel like its rehatched of different areas and isn't fun to explore.

7/10

Gameplay

This is whats really lacking in this game. Combat is slow, and it doesnt have any damage numbers showing up, or the enemies max life, so you end up just standing there fighting things untill they die. And combat isnt even exciting, choose a monster and it attacks and you sit there and wait for it to die. Movement is awful, you walk slow, and run fast and running takes no stamina or anything so you can run forever so why walking was even added ill never know.

4/10

Sound

Sounds are allright nothing out of the ordinary, nothing special, actually they are so boring i dont even notice if it had sounds or not at!

1/10

Overall

This game is moderately fun at first, but after awhile it just gets boring. I would not recommend this game to anyone. It's just not fun.

2/10

Horizons


FEATURE First the game is P2P, 13 dollars per month. With a free month trial.


Grouping I haven’t grouped much, as I haven’t gotten any chars I’ve tried out high enough. So can’t rate this.


Crafting Normally I wouldn’t like any crafting in a MMORPG, but, this is where the game passes, the crafting rocks. Equip an item needed to craft, start mining it, craft it into whatever you need to craft the item you want and it’s done. I haven’t explored this part of the game much yet so. 8/10


Monsters A nice variety, in the beginning there’s not much variety besides undead. A lot of maggots/zombies in the beginning. In the world there’s mostly undead, with different kinds of elements thrown in. 8/10


Solo Solo rocks in this game, recent MMORPG’s have been forced grouping, luckily you can still solo monsters, it’s not like Asheron’s call where you can solo monsters 50 levels or higher above you. But you can still solo without having to group. 9/10


Music/sound affects The music is pretty good, don’t listen to it much so, I haven’t gone into the blighted areas in beta the lighting affects in blighted areas was good. The monster noises are good also. The magic sounds are good to. 8/10


Graphics It might just be me, but with graphics set on High, they are great, any higher it starts to lag, that might be the game so. The character details are nice, especially on the dragons. I love the blighted areas graphics, and Tazoon, the capitol city, wow, the most awesome city in any game I’ve seen, although, it’s pretty much empty for such a huge city. One thing Horizons is missing so which well lower the score, no weather affects besides the blighted areas. Hopefully they plan to add weather. 8/10


Items/Loot Everything you find on a monster as to be crafted, nothing you can use, except imperial tokens, which you can use to buy crafting formulas or sell them for a lot, on my server they sale for about 200 copper. Items are nice, a lot of things have a restriction on them so, they don’t decay, which some people don’t like. The no useable loot on monsters lowers the score. 6/10


Races/classes This is my favorite part of the game, so many races to choose from, and any race can be good with any class, so a half giant could be a mage if he wanted, although it makes more sense to be a melee with one. There’s a lot of races/classes to choose from. Then prestige classes you choose if you want once you get enough of the requirements to become one. 10/10


Overall No PVP, but I never PVP anyways, So far I’m having a lot of fun, the AI where monsters gather up then attack player cities is a nice idea. Magic classes are fun watching the spell affects, although I noticed they leveled slower. You can build bridges across lands to get to a new land, repair dungeons, unlock new races. The blighted areas well always be different on each server, all servers well be different, one server might have a bridge, another might have unlocked a new race. Overall I rate this 8/10

Savage Eden


FEATURE Characters Not many classes/races to choose from, you got the typical warrior, a mage, a mage defender class and a human who uses guns to attack enemy. I hoped for more of a selection, but they are good. 6/10


Monsters I havn't played the game to a high level, but the monsters are good, they spawn fast and there's alot to kill, nice variety 7/10


Magic Now this is where the game fails (note: Like I said, I didn't play a high level) in the beggining theirs only 3 spells to choose from, and later on it looks like their isn't alot anyways. You have a fireball spell, pepple spell and a lightning one, fireball being the most powerful. 3/10


Graphics The graphics are great. The character graphics and monster graphics are nice. I love the spell affects, although, they do get old after awhile 9/10


Items My melee is the highest level of my characters, the weapons look nice, a nice variety, all of the weapons are level and skill based. 7.5/10


Levels/Skills the levels are nice, quick to level. You have stats that you raise everytime you level, you get 3 stat points each. You also have different skills that you raise also, like, upgrading damage by a percentage, or faster healing time. I like how it works. 8/10


Death Penalty What does penalty? I got to level 24 and died a few times and nothing happened, probly isn't implemented yet. A good or bad thing, your opinion 5/10


Crafting I havn't explored this part yet, but you can craft different gems and stuff. Can't rate this.


Overall It's an okay game, im only playing it till I can open up my Horizons box on christmas, it's fun, the GM even comes on and talks to people, which is cool, a rate this a good score. 7/10

Neopets


FEATURE A popular pet game, can't really be considered text base, or a MMORPG, want to know what all the fuss is about? Well, heres the review


Graphics : Well, some of the pets look dumb, others look cool. It's all flash based. And i've seen better flash based games out there 4/10


Players : A game with tons of players, sometimes its a lil to much, i've seen alot of flame wars in message boards, but with a game with tons of players, theres bound to be flame wars. Also, scammers and hackers. I havn't been scammed, but I have experienced being hacked, all my stuff was gone, then I got harrassement pms from the guy, he got banned, never got my stuff back. A game with tons of players, can sometimes be bad. 4/10


Admins/Moderators : Cant really review this, I never see any mods or admins on. People see that a user as been banned so. And people complain about being banned for no reason, dunno if thats true or not. 5/10 (Only because I never see any on)


Games : Alot of the games are bugged, like, playing a ball game, the ball gets stuck on the side of the screen. Then the graphics, I mentioned above i've seen better 3/10


Overall : I like pets game yes, but just because of so many players, I cant even chat, which I like to do, to many messages on one screen, and to many scammers/hackers for my liking. Overall, its over hyped, but people play it, and theres alot to do. So I have mixed feelings over it. 4/10

Astonia


FEATURE This is a game that isn't for everyone. The graphics are 2d but look great in my opinion. The battle system is fast paced and your character will automatically attack when attacked.

Characters:

When you start off you can decide to become 1 of 2 classes, warrior and mage. After leveling up to around 25-36 you can fight the gatekeeper to either Arch or Seyan, when you arch your character gains a cape and a new skill, and when you seyan you revert back to lvl 2, and are now a warrior-mage.

Each person raises their character differently, since as you gain exp you can increase stats, and levels are there just to give you a basic idea of power. And you can change your characters color at any time, so you can change to what you think looks good. Seyans can also arch.

World:

The world is of moderate size. 4 towns with a bunch of dungeons/areas. There is enough to keep people satisfied and the level of advancement isn't fast so youll always have somewhere to look forward to going to.

Monsters:

There are hundreds of monsters in this game, each of them looks unique, from bandits, to skeletons, to demons, to harpys, etc etc.

Community:

THIS is astonias true strength, there is so many ways to communicate, normal talking, shouting, hollering, and chat channels. There are clans which you can join and then have a channel just for that clan, and you can raid other clans, and have little clan battles to win clan jewels which keep clans alive. there is a huge player base, in town you will meet many many people, and at times you will fill a bit too crowded. You will meet many friends, and meet many a helping hand. Also you will meet people who you do not wish to meet again, but in what game you wont.

Sound:

The only downfall of the game, the sound is just horrible, the sounds are all awful, and there is no background music, so it can get silent.

Overall:

A very sound game, which i think everyone will enjoy if they give it a chance and dont give up right away.

Call of Duty


FEATURE Ok, this is a FPS, I know not a MMORPG, but this is a good game, and this is taken from demo, I havn't played full-version yet, but what I played, ROCKED! It takes place during World War 2


Graphics: 9/10- I loved the explosions especially on the tanks, the characters were good, not top of the line so, a little blocky, the gun affects were nice to :) Over all, they get a good rating


Sound: 8/10- I loved the explosion sounds, like when you implant C4 or whatever it was on a tank and hear it explode, the character voices were nice and realistic, the gun sounds were great :) Didn't pay attention if their were music or not, don't think there was, but, I was busy listening tot he explosions and stuff and didn't pay attention to that- Another high score


Missions 6/10- This is taken from demo, a level I see alot in fps games, plant C4 in this case, a tank, watch it explode after taking out all the guards and move on, the demo mission was pretty short, but it was still fun


Fellow soldier help/AI 8/10- Ignore the dumb rank title, couldn't find a good name, now on with the topic, in the mission I played I had a few soldiers helping me, which they really did save my life a few times, I was about dead then they killed him and I ran to get the health kit and moved on, really good AI to, my other fellow soldiers crouched when needed and hid behind stuff to block the fire from the enemy, it's all good :) The enemy AI I didnt see much, they seemed to just keep firing at the wall or vehicle without doing any damage, but still, my fellow soldiers were good


Overall 9/10- I loved the game, I loved the mission, the game was pretty good, one of my favorite games out this year, and this was only the demo..I still liked it, I give this a high score, I reccomend this to all FPS/World war game lovers, like I said up top, it takes place in World War 2

Final Fantasy XI


FEATURE First, its a MMORPG, so yes it requires pay to play


13 dollars per month +1 every extra char, first char free.

Now heres my review


User friendly The people are really friendly in this game, I was low on health and someone came running up and healed me, also I had one guy give me a shield, for free, I didn't even ask for one. Right now so, no one talks alot, but its pretty user friendly I rate this 10/10


Events I havn't been to any events, I missed the Halloween one, because I didn't have the game yet, so I can't rate this, but yes, it as events it looks like


Combat The combat is confusing at first, (always use Check on monsters to see if you can battle them or not) You have to double click monster, or use enter key to select them then press it again to attack. Theirs special moves you can do also for melees, I made a warrior for my first char, which gets a special ability when you first start that lets you do critical hits when you use it. Then for thief another char I made gets an ability to dodge melee attacks 100% of time for 30 seconds. Combat is pretty normal, oh, if you do special moves in a sequence with perfect timing you can do more damage then normal which is nice, so its all about timing. 9/10




Graphics The graphics are amazing, especially for the special attacks and spells, I havn't played much to explore around so to different cities, but the cities look amazing. The water affects look great to 9/10




Controls Now this is where the lower score appears, although im getting used to it, its pretty confusing, you use the numpad to move, although you can change it somehow (havn't figured it out yet) to the w a s and d key like a normal mmorpg would use. its better to select monster with the Enter key, as, if you use left click and you miss the monster it opens the annoying menu, so Im just using enter key mostly, although it sometimes selects a person instead of the monster. Like I said, you get used to it, alot of reviews are saying its annoying/hard or whatever. 5/10




Sound The sound is peaceful, but im not listening to it much, so I cant really review this but I like it so 8/10




Skills/Leveling Its level based/skill based, you raise a certain skill as you use it, like if you use swords or daggers, the more you use it, the higher it is, as that, the higher your level, the more special abilities/spells you get. Its an ok system, I dont really care about skills or leveling, so I wont rate this one




Overall So far the people are pretty friendly on my server (which I forgot to mention, your picked into a random server) I havn't done any missions/quests yet so I didn't review that part, so far im loving this game, minus the controls, I rate this 8/10
