Summary: If there was ever a game that warranted a remake, this is it. While challenging and having a fairly steep learning curve, this game still shines above all others in providing that sense of "accomplishment" when completing what ever task you set out to do.
Summary: Best MMORPG of all time. Outdated by today's standard (2014) but still fun. complete customization of character, no set classes or skills and full freedom to explore an extremely large world (500square km) with thousands of quests and a very deep storyline make this a bedrock of MMORPG gameplay.
Summary: In 14 years, I'm yet to find a better PVP game than AC. Unlike most MMOs today, which force you into a handful of predefined factions, you log into AC as your own man and it's up to you to join a player created guild from where you will draw support, but also contribute to its success.
Summary: While browsing RPG titles I spotted Asherons Call and had to create an account just to write how fondly I remember this wonderful game. Asherons Call was and I think still is the best RPG game ever made. The entire game was a free roaming world of exploration.
Summary: This game still has it, even in 2012. If you can get by the fact that it is a retro MMO (not as massive as it once was, but has a closer community), then you might end up falling in love with AC and dereth.
Summary: One of the greatest MMOs of all time. It is the most unique and the most fun out of any MMO that has come out since. Graphics may not be all that great now but they were pretty great back when it first came out. There will never be another like it. It will always be a memory that I cherish.
Summary: One of the best MMOs I ever played. The world is immense. The lore amazing. People have to actually think about their stats. There is no "level range" on most items or spells. You are not corralled through quests and levels. It is very sandbox.
Summary: More memories lie with this game than any other MMO I've played, but if you missed AC back in its golden age you're too late now. So I suppose this review doesn't help much. I just want to make sure that Metacritic is aware that AC was once an incredible, incredible game.
