Let me start out this review saying I am addicted to MMO's.I was in beta for Ultima Onlina, Everquest, Anarchy Online, SWG and WoW. I then went on to play each MMO for several hundred hours if not days. I played WoW for at least 20-40 hours per week for 4 years. My characters averaged 40 days played. That being said (not to brag but to say I know WoW), here is my review of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
If there were any times that you played an MMO and thought that, something was missing... I am sure that the folks over at Mythic Entertainment thought the very same things. As the torchbearers for RVR or Realm vs Realm battle they understand how to do an MMO right from the beginning. What Mythic did was to build a game where the player vs player was not an afterthought to keep high levels occupied, instead it IS the game. After you are slightly acquainted with the interface you are then thrown head-long into battle. War is all around and they mean it. This game is about fantasy WAR and not about phat lewt, (although there is that sorta, more on this later).
Another feature that is built in is the amazing Tome of Knowledge. If you ever downloaded addons for WoW for use as a record keeper then you will know how this feature works. The really cool part is that this tome is utilized as a bragging tool and it also unlocks character titles. It keeps a record of the number of mob x you have slain, the number of sales to merchants and so on. You'll have to see it to completely get the power of this tool.
Another great feature is the open group system.Read more ›
Coming from Dark Age of Camelot, a game that unbearably belongs to the first generation of MMOs, Mythic decided to take the Warhammer lore and craft a game that they know best: realm versus realm. Warhammer Online (WAR) takes everything they tested, tried and made work from DAoC and pushed it forward into a new generation. Writing this review is tricky, because on the surface WAR is like most MMOs out there. But it's the details and the small things that make it something completely different.
Let's start with the way the game is set up. From the beginning, PvP is important as one of the first quests you receive will be to complete a scenario. In this way, WAR emphasizes its committment to more than PvE. In fact, a PvP'r could spend his or her time entirely PvPing and level all the way to the endgame. It helps that scenarios are constantly running and chances are you'll be in one before you know it.
The distinction, though, is that if you don't really care much about PvP, there are other opportunities. Firstly, literally hundreds of quests are out there, each with rewards that are specific to your class, meaning you won't be doing a quest for a nice axe that you, a healer, can never use. The zones begin as approximately 80% PvE content, 20% PvP. As you continue through the zones and into different tiers, that percentage will change, but there will always be PvE content.Read more ›
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.
There are large areas made specifically for RvR with capture points as well as a keep that must be assaulted and controlled in each RvR area. Taking these keeps pushes your side much closer to taking control of the zone, but you also help the WAR effort with almost everything you do, including participating and winning Scenarios (similar to battlegrounds in WoW except more varied and more PvP oriented).
My favorite scenario so far is one where a single artifact must be picked up and held on to. Killing enemies while holding the artifact nets your team greater points than without and while you are fighting to protect the artifact carrier, the other side is working to bring him down ASAP. Definitely leads to some intense battles.
Outside of the RvR content there are the awesome Public Quests. They are almost like mini-raids, that anyone can join in and at point and participate. They are generally structured into increasingly difficult stages. At the end everyone who participated gets to roll on bags of loot, where those who contributed the most get bonuses to their roll. In addition to the bags, each group of PQs has Influence rewards that are chosen when you get enough Influence, which you gain from participation in the PQ it itself, so you are guaranteed an item eventually.Read more ›
