After waiting what felt like an eternity, Final Fantasy XIII made its debut in Europe earlier this year and I was waiting with gleeful anticipation at the store doors early morning on day one. Having already done research prior it was made clear that the public viewed that the PS3 version was graphically superior to the Xbox 360's, I followed that advice and was not disappointed.
Pocket Legends is an MMORPG made exclusively for the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad. The game is entirely free to play, and only takes around 40MB of your diskspace (that's like 5 minutess of download?). That's actually pretty amazing as most apps take around 100MB+.
World of Magic is a 2D MMORPG made exclusively for the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. The game uses the isometric bird's-eye-view often used by regular 2D MMOs such as Ragnarok Online. When I first saw the game, I was instantly captured by the town screenshot (back in the iTunes store), which showed a huge population of players sitting down in the middle of the virtual town. It's quite rare for handheld devices to support MMOs, making this game a blessing for all apple handheld users. The best part? IT'S FREE! I've been seeing a lot of positive comments regarding World of Magic, and since the app was only 30 MB, I clicked on the download button as soon as it came up. So what does World of Magic have to offer? Is it really as awesome as people claim = or is the 'pocket MMO factor' the only thing going for it?

MMOs have been around for a very long time, serving their massively multiplayer goodness to players all over the world. It's amazing how MMOs have managed to evolve through the years, unleashing an unforgiving barrage of patches and updates to keep gamers entertained. Used to be, MMOs were played in small chat room interfaces, allowing players to team up with each other in order to beat whatever the dungeon master threw at them. Like an online version of pen and paper RPGs where players roll electronic dice in order to resolve in game situations.
