Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

 

Review by Lewis B Warhammer Online Developer Mythic Entertainment Publisher EA Released July 2009 Available for PC Time Played: over 150 hours. Verdict: 3/5 Middlin' “Warhammer Online still has promise, but the licence is tragically underused. Mythic...

Warhammer Online Review

 

As a veteran of games like Everquest and World of Warcraft with many thousands of hours poured into those games, jumping into yet another MMORPG that looks just as addictive can feel a little dangerous sometimes. Am I going to get lost in this game...

As far as the rest of the endgame goes, there's not nearly the PvE focus in Warhammer Online as in Blizzard's top game, but to hear many WoW players talk, they're quite happy to sit in arenas and call that their endgame - for those players, this could...

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Review for the PC

 

Truly a gift from Sigmar.

Wonderful UI; Excellent PvP; RvR is rock-solid; Looks and feels good; Strong class balance; Some novel quests

AI for NPCs is dumb; Dull music

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (PC)

 

On September 18, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning finally launched, opening its gates to massive numbers of players (Mythic claims 500,000 to date) who proceeded to kill one another in bloody glory with only a few technical hiccups. This is how it's...

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

 

Mythic's MMO take on the Warhammer universe hits the ground running with an exceptional game built around social bonding and the joys of killing your friends.

Great PvP; public quests; great "meta-game" mechanic; Tome of Knowledge; easy social groupings; guild play

Technical issues; slightly unbalanced population; some unbalanced battlefields; no voice chat

Expert review by:

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

 

Engaging player-versus-player combat makes this an online role-playing game to reckon with.

Public quests are a great idea and a lot of fun ; Stand-alone scenarios are varied and rewarding ; Open battles can be wonderfully chaotic ; Looks and runs great, with few notable bugs

Extreme PVP focus is detrimental to those looking to quest and play solo ; Crafting is poorly implemented and completely unbalanced ; Player base is fragmented, even on full servers

This isn't the most well-rounded massively multiplayer online game, but Warhammer Online grabs the tuskgor by the horns, delivering the finest PVP content seen in a traditional persistent world RPG. Questers and explorers may not find what they're...

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

 

Touted as being the pretender to the throne of MMO games, expectations for Warhammer Online were running high. Whilst brilliant in a lot of ways, the lack of polish and a fundamental flaw in the game dynamic does not bode well for its longevity. It is...

Warhammer fans will love the faithful creation of the Warhammer world. One of the best player versus player games currently on the market. Some great new MMO concepts

This game deserved more time in the testing phase. Poor installation mechanics and glitches make this very much a diamond in the rough. More concerning is the reliance on server population to make much of the game playable

Expert review by:

Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning

 

By their very nature, massively multiplayer role-players live or die on the strength of the contribution made by the gaming public, and reviewing any MMRPG in the early days of its lifespan – with woefully underpopulated servers – can never do...
