Summary: pros: quick leveling system customizable class system great pvp system which emphasizes land control nice interface cons: the third person camera was poorly implemented bland world. mostly flat, some trees, a town here and there still somewhat buggy (1 year after release) overall this is a decent game. like most other mmgs, you will quickly get bored alone. the most fun i had was getting into a guild, who PLed the heck out of me, and taking part in PVP.

Summary: Shadowbane is a great concept in MMPORG. Player created cities and economy was a great idea. Races and professions were very interesting and diverse. The idea of warring nations of players seemed like it would be interesting and entertaining. However, getting an account to play the game seemed to be a huge hassle. If your credit card doesn't validate when applying, the typical solution is try a new one. Not everyone carries 2 or more credit cards, as in my case.
Summary: Ive noticed in reading the reviews that this game rates either 5 stars or 1. The truth of the matter is that this game is very similar to every other mmpog and I find its neither really great nor very disappointing. The game offers some good stuff, like fast lvl progression with disciplines to offer for later game enjoyment (bounty hunting for instance) and some bad stuff such as serious lag issues.
