Great game. Give it a try.,
This review is from: Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning - PC (DVD-ROM)
This really is a great game. At first I thought I would hate it, but it grows on you fast.
Ignore all the negative things you have heard about it. The graphics aren't bad, they were locked on low during beta. This game doesn't need a super computer to play. It isn't a copy of WoW. There aren't many bugs and it is having a pretty good launch.
So what is good about the game? This game is about RvR combat (good vs bad). Starting at level 1 you can pvp and get experience from it. You don't have to level to 70 then spend 6 months raiding for gear just to pvp. The classes are very well balanced. The fights take longer then 5 seconds. Leveling can be done many ways including pvp. This is player vs player combat at it's finest.
Don't want to jump into pvp at the beginning? There are lots of quest and a great story line. Want to solo? You can do that easily. Want to group? There are public quest where you will learn to group, get great gear, experience and meet some new friends. Are you a casual player? This is the game for you. You don't have to devote you life to it.
In no way do I mean to put down other mmorpg's. They are great as well. Warhammer has enough of "other games" built in to please the masses, but has fresh new gameplay to make you want more.
Does this game look like WoW. Yes, but it is totally different. In Warhammer you are either Destruction or Empire and there for one reason, you are at WAR.
