Mortal Online is a next generation PC MMORPG both in terms of graphics and gameplay. There are no PvP zones, only an open realistic world where you are free to choose your own path. Experience true real-time combat where you decide every move your character makes and where your personal skill really matters. Build your own house, or set up a guild to build a keep. With enough power, violence or diplomacy, you and your allies will be able to rule an entire nation. Choose from many different races and professions. You decide your own style of playing and whether to focus on PvP or PvE, both sharing the same game world. Devote your life to crafting, combat, magic, thievery, trading and more. Discover new skills, tools and resources or be the first to explore new areas to put your name on the map.
First, let me say that this game is an amazing game that instantly drew me in with it's potential.
Now, let me tell you all that are interested why not to play this game.
First there are the blue blockers/tamer trolls. This is in the "always safe area" mind you. They will step in front of your swing as you're trying to attack a springbok (deer), or tame a springbok in the middle of a bunch of other springbok and when you attack it (or attack the one that stepped in front of you), you instantly are flagged as a criminal and them or anyone else can kill you and take all your hard earned loot. And your gear, and your gold, and your head and your carcass...
Next, after learning all these troll tricks, I logged back in and am met with a murderer. A murderer that can 1 shot guards... The guards that are supposed to make you safe in the "always safe area". What kind of game sets up a useless system that is "designed" to keep new players safe when a murdereous bastard troll can come in, kill you and your 6 buddies along with everyone else around in 1 hit, and can kill the 1 or 2 guards that come to "stop the murderer" in 1 hit...
This is an amazing game so full of potential, but the people that made the game don't give a rats behind about you, your money, or your continued subscription. Nor do they have the tiniest clue how to stop the trolls that blue block, tame, or murder with wanton abandon.
Don't play this game. You will most likely never get past the "always safe" newb area because of how horribly this game has been designed to actually encourage the type of troll tactics that are being employed against new players.
Great game, horribly designed "always safe area", horribly implemented mechanics that allow people to screw over new players in every way imaginable.
Played this game from Beta Block B till 1 year after initial launch... It really is one of a kind. In many ways. It's a sandbox MMO like never seen before and it's made by an indie game company from sweden with like 10 devs or so. Which makes it a really unique experience!
You just HAVE to try it yourself, no one review can show, what this game really is about. It's about YOU and what YOU and your fellow gamers make of it! :-)
BUT it really has issues with bugs, performance and exploits, which is why it only get's 6 of 10 from me!
You start with too little and people kill you too much, its too easy to become a Criminal and the Tutorial could be better, Springoks are overpriced (Even if it makes it easy to get rich) and you can't craft arrows, other than that the game is an Eh for me.
