Wizard 101 Preview


NEWS Wizard 101 seemed to be brimming with style and charm as this MMORPG looked very different from all of the other titles on the market.

A True Gaming Disaster.


INTERVIEW The title says it all, really. As I started the game and went to create my character, the first thing I noticed was the pitiful excuse for customization. You aren't able to choose your gender, the point-click is is as laggy as it is poorly maneuverable, and the only customization offered is preset hair and face modules of dull quality. I will say they did well with the class choices, though. Nonetheless, I wasn't going to let that deter me from playing.

I entered the world as an Orc Berserker, and the surroundings didn't seem bad. The graphics were acceptable, late 90's style, so I had a little hope for the game; until, that is, I actually decided to move around. The movement in this game lags horribly. As you try to rotate your view while running, it takes almost 2 seconds before the character moves to catch up.

Of course, despite this little glitch, I decided to try my hand at a quest. The quest system seems fairly descent, although there was still the not-so-descent point and click. So I then set out to check out the combat in this, and I'll say that the melee attack was smooth, however the player HP is reduced much too fast - I died 4 times killing six newbie-level spiders.

That is when I decided to take my leave. All in all, I believe that if the developers would have put a little more time and professional effort into designing this game, it could have been somewhat good. But seeing as that wasn't the case, this game is so terrible that it had to be reduced to "100% Free" status in hope that someone might just play it for 5 minutes.

MMO Games and the Language Barrier


NEWS Language barriers exist in many countries for MMOGs. Unless the foreigner knows the language, he or she may very well not play.
