Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
Dives right into the action; engaging PvP; heavy emphasis on combat; jaw-dropping moments that draw you into the game.
Public quests are a great idea and a lot of fun, Standalone scenarios are varied and rewarding, Open battles can be wonderfully chaotic, Looks and runs great, with few notable bugs .
Great PvP; public quests; great "meta-game" mechanic; Tome of Knowledge; easy social groupings; guild play.
Unexceptional quest grinding, especially in middle levels; environments could be larger and more varied.
Extreme PVP focus is detrimental to those looking to quest and play solo, Crafting is poorly implemented and completely unbalanced, Player base is fragmented, even on full servers.
Technical issues; slightly unbalanced population; some unbalanced battlefields; no voice chat.

Another day, another MMO on the PC. Oh wait, this time it's worth paying attention. Really, Age of Conan has been the only meaningful blip on the MMO radar since World of Warcraft was released, and even Conan seems to have petered off since the...-
