Old...But good for any new mmo'er

With a vast world and the most in-depth class system i've ever seen, Anarchy Online is one of the most unique mmo's on the market.  Although it is not graphically appealing, Anarchy Online makes up for it's graphics with it's enormous amount of features; from limitless skills, to its personal dungeon system. At the start of the game, you are asked to choose a race, you are given a choice between 4 different races, then a choice of around 19-23 different classes. The beginning of the game is a bit slow and you often get tired of the constant grinding to please the quest givers, but work hard enough and your efforts will soon pay off when you are transported to the main lands to begin your journey. You will soon learn that most of the quests at the beginning of the game will be given to you by a machine. There, you can choose the best quest for your level and/or party. The whole 'machine gives you quest' idea was pretty good, but it gets old when you've run out of quests to do and the only quests availible are the ones that are too high for your level and are forced to take a party with you.

Overall, Anarchy Online is good if you are into Sci-fi games and are a beginner mmo'er like all of us used to be, or if you are just looking for a game that will keep you working to upgrade the plethora of skills in the game.

I give this game a:  7.6/10

 

For The RECORD:

Played this game for about a month, 2 weeks, and 4 days, then pulled an all-nighter last night.

 

 

look forward to seeing more of my reviews on MMORPG.com

    "19-23 classes"? First, they're "professions", not "classes.

    Second, get your glasses checked.

    There are 12 professions open to free players and 2 exclusive professions open to subscribers for 14 total professions.

    And the "machines that give quests" are called mission terminals. First, they DO NOT run out of missions and they DO NOT give you missions higher than you can handle unless you move the level slider higher than you can handle. The only thing they may do is send you into a higher level area to get to the mission, but 1 minute asking in chat would have gotten you a description of how to use the terminal to get missions in closer areas. You get more than one mission option when you request a mission. You DO NOT have to take the ones far away. Hell, you can pull missions right in the same city you're in until level 50.

    And how do you "get tired of the constant grinding of the quest givers" on the newbie island when the most casual new player with no mmo experience at all can finish the island in 2 hours?

    I'm sorry, but you may have had an account for "1 month, 2 weeks and 4 days", but your "all nighter" last night was probably the only time you played. I'd be interested to know your ingame name so we can look it up on auno.org and see how far you got in the time you say you played.

    Do not give "reviews" when you don't know what you're talking about.

    As far as looking forward to your other reviews on mmorpg.com, I highly doubt anyone will be looking forward to more "reviews" of their games by people who don't even know the basics of the game they are supposedly reviewing.

    Eyeswideopen is totally right, the first area can easily be done in 1-2 hour for the most beginners out there. The game is pretty interesting but is getting a little old. I suggest you give it a try if you have really nothing else to do.

          LOL yeah it almost feels like the review was written for <insert any MMO here>.......WHile the reviewer may have played the game somewhat there is alot missing from the review and alot of it is inaccurate.......... AO is a solid older game that is fairly challenging and has a high learning curve......If you can live with the graphics (mainly the awful character models) then it may very well be a nice game for you.......The character development is second to none and implants, perks, and other goodies make the game alot of fun to play around with.....If character development is your thing then AO could be a solid choice.
