Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Overall Vanguard isn't a bad game, but it doesn't really bring anything new to the table of the MMO industry. While there are many races and classes to choose from, they seem to be variations on the standard theme of fighter, magic user, healer and rogue. The progression is heavily quest based and doesn't leave a lot of room for doing much if you want to progress in levels at any kind of efficient speed.

Vanguard Saga Of Heroes (PC)

  • Excerpt: The current direction most MMOs are taking is cloning World of Warcraft. While this is to be expected due to its huge success we are left to wonder if that is what we consumers really want. I personally like WoW, but I'd much rather play a game that is a bit harder, doesn't allow so many instant traveling options and is as a whole more hardcore.

  • Excerpt: With most games, and especially online only ones, they kind of fall into a category where players kind of like them, but don't really fall in love. Vanguard however will force you to pick sides. Either you will love the game and think it is the best MMO ever created, or you will hate it and wonder how long it could possibly live before going to the online graveyard with so many other titles. And which side you fall on will depend on what type of player you are.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Review

  • Excerpt: Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is the latest to try and dethrone WoW as the King of MMORPGs. With a team listing numerous successes on their resume and some key figures behind the original EverQuest, for many it seemed like an ambition that may finally be met. A unique three-sphere system allowing players to play as they wish (crafting, adventuring or diplomacy), an incredibly ambitious long-term plan and some really unique class ideas pointed towards a success.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Review

GameSpot
16 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Since the release of Blizzard's monumentally popular World of Warcraft and its expansion, it's been impossible for new massively multiplayer online role-playing games to avoid the inevitable comparisons. That's probably for the best in the case of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, for while the aforementioned games have some superficial similarities to this one, their core designs are far different.
  • Pros: Lively combat makes for fun group questing, Diplomacy gameplay is an enjoyable way to involve players in NPC dialogue, The complex crafting is interesting and rewarding
  • Cons: Bugs, bugs, and more bugs, Forced grouping will leave solo players cold, Stiff death penalty and lack of instanced dungeons are as frustrating now as they were in EverQuest's early days
