The 10-level trial is a free download, and the full game costs $19.95 to buy and then $15 a month to play, so it's an investment. Warhammer Online's gameplay is great enough to repay that expense, or at least a few months of it, whether you're a practiced MMO player or not. The impressive game world, graphics, and combat will keep you coming back for more.
If your favorite part of the fantasy genre involves gigantic battles against incredible odds, then WAR has been designed for you. The entire game is built around this concept—more Battle of Helm’s Deep than Riddles in the Dark as you fight and die to stop an enemy onslaught. But if soloing on quests to feel like you’re the Chosen One is your thing, you’re missing half the game.
So is Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning going to redefine the MMO genre? No, but it doesn’t have to. It’s a different, more frenetic and yet focused form of fantasy combat. There’s more of a focus on the epic conflict between the two sides and the mythology that surrounds that battle; from the start you’re part of this conflict and you really can’t journey anywhere in the world where it’s not omnipresent.
