i'll see if i can fix up a couple of short reviews tomorrow.
most games i played in the past month i only played on low levels, so
the reviews will be just my first impressions of the games. those will
be:

- Immortals
- World of Kong Fu
- Infinity
- WYD
- Fury (gonna check the graphics tonight, 2.6gb client should have nice ones)
- SEAL
- Talisman

i think i forgot one or two.
will be just my basic impressions tho, if you don't want to use those and
only want full reviews, im afraid i cant help you :]

the infinity game, i only played for a little bit.
iirc, it's almost all pvp, no real maps. you choose players to join your
team, then you go on missions, like in guild wars.

not my taste, so not that much fun imo ;]

edit: pffff. installed client for Fury is 7+ gb T_T
patching now, cant try out tonight need to sleep :[
will try tomorrow morning.

Not the best Rakion vid, but it gets the job done. Man so many reviews and games to add, I'm gonna have to put like 5 - 10 minutes aside for it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqACYh8p ... re=related

My Build^ Grip Swordsman.

The great thing about Rakion is that your actual lvl doesn't count for much and its mostly about how much skill you have.

Ragnarok online I know has the infamous War of emperium. It's like a massive castle war kinda thing and the game is all about team play.

Speaking of Ragnarok Online, why isn't that game on the list? One of my all time favorites too :p

+1

It's kinda nice and a really small download. Though the graphics are old as hell for a 2007 game.

It reminds me of "Sid Meier's Pirates!", that game was fun.

Dude, RF online is the better choice... CHIPWARS(a war between the 3 races, happens 4 times a day), You level up your stats by using them...

Just try it dude... I'm sure you'll have fun with it than RO.

yea, and even when they're private servers, some of them are really populated and have events. Would be cool if we had a srf guild in one of the servers 8)
it does take a lot of skill compared to sro, especially the team play in WoE (War of Emperium)
even have much better service than sro (and against bots) >.<

Yup, loved those events and nice communities :) Real cool idea for the guild too, but probably a nice high rate server just to mess around with and stuff. Specially when you need a break or so from sro.

yea, so i've been playing mabinogi and find out their item shop scheme :/
Almost as bad as silkroad. So people who rebirth (reset age/level) get more ability points so they can level up the very highly expensive (AP-ability point wise) skills. A large advantage over people who don't pay..so only way to beat that is to level up...a lot.

I might stay to see what it is like but i caculated the points and i'll never have the same strength as item buyers...

well voyage century online is a game somewhat mixed of silkroad and runescape and by that i mean it has more or less silkroad graphics and the features of runescape as in mining fishing lumber smelting and others and as for silkroad features it has graphics and pvp and other stuff however bots arnt such a huge problem in voyage century because if someone does bot it doesnt interfeer with a normal player

I'm hooked up with Rappelz right now. I'm playing with a lvl 23 Strider and a lvl 15 Dark magician. Even when there's not much variety of gear, it's still a very nice game.

Let me see... it's a bit similar to the European race in SRO.

There's 3 races to choose from (Deva, Asura and Gaia) and 3 classes in each race. The classes are Warrior, Magician or Summoner. The Warrior uses melee attacks the most, the magicians use magic (obvious, i know, but depending the race it's different kind of magic), and the Summoners have buffs and heal spells for their pets to make them stronger than other classes'.

The difference come from the race you choose:
The Deva Warrior is the best tanker, with buffs to increase defense for themselves and the party (similar to the Warrior class in SRO); the Asura Warrior is a melee damage dealer with fast attacks and often critical hits (similar to SRO's Rogue), and Gaia Warrior is the middle point, doesn't excel in either but isn't useless.
In the magic area, the Deva magicians are the healers of the party, keeping eveyone alive and buffing them (like Clerics and Bards in SRO); the Asura magicians are the strongest damage dealers in the game (like Wizards and Warlocks); and the Gaia magician is a melee fighter with strong buffs to weaken the enemy or strenghten themselves.
And i wouldn't be able to say much about Summoners as i haven't played them myself but they seem to be similar to each other. When they fight, they use their pets, buffing and healing them as their attacks are limited. They are the only class that can summon two pets at the same time.

A downside, as i already say, is that there's not much gear variety. You get a starting set of clothes and you can change it pretty fast, but you have to stick with it until level 20, where you get a new "Rank" (like SRO's degrees of gear). Sadly, the next rank is level 50.

All in all i enjoy the game more than SRO. You rarely are our of quests because you can travel to any of the three cities (one of each race) and pick up quests there. Besides, the main form of grinding in here are Dungeons. And you often will see invitations to dungeon parties in the general chat, theough you should be level 30 or higher to survive in the first dungeon.

It worths a try, it's a bit slower paced than SRO, and you need a better computer to play it, but it's enjoyable.
