If you are the kind of person who wants something different from the bog standard MMO like wow, I really do suggest giving Astonia3 a real go... Its not much to look at, but its been going since around late 90s I think, dispite it saying the relase was 2002, thats not true, I joined the game in 2002 when I left school, and 9 years later, I am still running around in it happy as ever..... Graphics aside, this game is awesome.
The main key feature about this game that makes it wipe the floor with everything is, is the character build. In most MMO's now the game entirely relys on who grinds the most dungeons to get the better epics, and when you level you are given 40hp, 1str, 2dex, 2int etc etc....... Astonia awards you Experience per kill and from quests, you use the experience to increase the stats you want. and this makes the PVP side of things amazing, because its entirely down to who can make the best builds. You can download a stat calculator which allows you to make builds before you actually make your character.... So you know how it will turn out.
the game is stupidly long, only about 30 people in the world who played it, have ever hit max lv200 on it, because it takes so long to get there unlike wow/rift/aion etc etc where u hit max level in 1 month.
The Community is what keeps me there, we are all a real close group of friends now, every1 knows every1, sadly the awesome days are gone, lots of people moved on etc, but the game is still alive, and I seriously would suggest that everyone looking for a more creative game, to come and try this out. its 30 days free trial, and a p2p subscription then of $9.99 a month, bit High I know but its the most addict game you will ever play if you give it a real shot.
hel.astonia.com - Create your account, and download the client... the bonus of a game being 10+ years old? the game file is like 32mb to download...... so you guys can get it in like 10 seconds to 5 mins depending on your internet connections So seriously, go there.... download it, and try it out.
If you do, ask for a guy named Ceri, thats me, and I will be happy to show you around how the game works, dont go by the screenshots on the website, we have moaned at the Game management for years to show the true game, but instead they stick with the same old boring screenshots that dont show anything but the god in /invisible mode..... They Suck, but the game rocks!
Cya laters foos!
