1.0 out of 5 stars Archlord: You couldn't make a worse MMO if you tried October 26, 2006
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I participated in the open beta of Archlord, enticed by the great graphics and a break from World of Warcraft, which has become repetitive to me. I was utterly disgusted by this game within two hours. I didn't play long enough to encounter the serious bugs mentioned by the previous reviewer, but he's not alone in his claims. I simply cannot confirm nor deny that.

However, that doesn't really matter. I was shocked to find out that the game really wants you to move using a click-to-move interface. What's worse is that if you click to move somewhere, there's almost no chance your character will get there if there is *anything* in the way. Tree stump? Groundhog? No deal. To move, you literally have to click 5 feet in front of you every 3 seconds until you get to your destination. Fun!

I much prefer the W-A-S-D keyboard movement control with mouse look, the standard in just about every first person shooter and every successful MMO (WoW, EQ, CoH/CoV, the whole bunch). Guess what? Keyboard control is crippled in this game. Sure, W moves you forward, but A and D turn you at a 45-degree angle only--there is no smooth movement. In fact, movement is ridiculously awkward, and the camera was flipping all over the place.

Compound this with clicking to move and clicking to attack are the same mouse click! No! I was trying to run *past* that slime....I didn't mean to attack it! On the flip side, there's nothing like being in a heated battle, and you go to click to attack, and you accidentally run into another group of baddies because you *just* missed the enemy and clicked to move instead. Nice!

One last point: The entire purpose of this game is to become the Archlord, the most powerful person in the entire server.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should still be in Beta November 1, 2006
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I too was part of the beta for the game. It was fun in beta... as part of beta you expect there to be bugs and issues so they don't annoy you quite so bad.

Then some brilliant person thought it was ready for release... wow... first day in game no one ran anywhere, just gliding no toon movement when attacking just standing in front of the enemy with damage counters going over your heads. the auction house took forever before you could actually post auctions and even now you have to collect your money from one sell, log out, log in, collect money from the next item sold repeat as needed until you get your cash for each item. FOr participating in certain events or pre-ordering and things like that you get special in game items... problem is only a couple of them actually are coded properly to have their effect on your character.

This game should still be in beta, don't throw your money away on it until its bug reports diminish drastically. Even then only buy it if you seriously love PvP and pretty much nothing else... the quest lines are lame and repetative, not much in the way of character customization, only 3 races without special things for each race just classes... hell you can't even choose between male or female. you wanna be a moon elf... you're female... apparently the moon elf men don't adventure. you want to be a human archer your male.

Last thing... I second the previous reviewers comment about the click to move choice... everyone else uses WASD for a reason, it works. click to move is just way to choppy, especially with your character only moving in a straight line and stopping at every rock in the way.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY - This was shut down January 20, 2014
The fact that Amazon is still selling this is insulting. You cannot play this game anymore, as it was shut down by the publisher on January 1, 2014.

DON'T BUY THIS. The servers are shut down and you cannot play it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible October 23, 2006
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The fact that this game was released as a "finished" product blows me away. The amount of serious bugs in the game that have not been addressed entering the third week of retail is astounding. Every time a patch arrives to fix a known issue, several more things in game are broken.

All that aside, even if the bugs get fixed, I think I would find more variety in busting out an Atari 2600 and playing Joust for three hours. The grind in this game is terrible - I hit lvl 31 last week and won't be touching this game again.

If you are a 12 year old with no life, 100 hours a week to grind through levels and enjoy smack talking and killing characters 20 levels lower than yourself to have fun, buy Archlord. Otherwise, please do yourself a favor and save the money for something else...
