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. Towns offer certain strategic advantages that make them more desirable than others.
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. Sure at level 1 rabbits could kill you, but with enough cunning and care you could actually traverse the forests between towns b y tip toeing around the edges of banderling camps!
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. Some of it's additions are a bit forced, but it has monthly (sometimes more) updates and content. Bottom line it is still great fun.
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. Even tried playing it again with a newer system and game wouldn't play at all. I've even thoug ht of building an older computer just to play again.
Summary: I have played this game off and on since about January of 2000. This is by far the best game that I've ever played. It allows for more character control than any game. You get to choose every single point of skill that you get. The monsters are fun to fight. The quests don't have quest markers and you actually have to understand the game to play it well. If you like the paper-based RPGs, this is the game for you...
Summary: I started playing this game back in 2000, since then I have been hooked. A lot has changed the game is still very much active. Of all the games I have ever played this one stands out the most. No game has ever come close to it's sheer AWESOMNESS. Hands down has the best PVP of any game to date. PS YOU CAN DOWNLOAD this for free from they're webpage just gotta pay the subscription and there is a free trial.
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. Basically you log in, and you can go anywhere and do anything, and you are limited only by your skill as a player. The level cap is crazy high, so you don't hit that ceiling and then quit very easily.
Summary: Yes, the person who wrote the "stay away" was absolutely on the mark in the year 2000. Seven years later its really has grown and is quite the game, content is added every month (do the math 12 world updates * 7 years). The game has seen 2 major revisions (the latest is Throne of desitny) which had a major graphic upgrade. I started playing in the year 2000, and after 7 years of playing, I think the game has never been better.
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.
