    Allods Online doesn't re-invent the wheel, but manages to mix old and new extremely well. Once you own your first ship it doesn't feel like a WoW clone either. But it needs a lot of time and friends to play with.
  2. Newbie friendly from the outset and tons of quests on hand, but misses the vital spark to make it a must-play. [June 2010, p.99]
  3. There are reasons to play Allods: the visuals, the lore, the grab-bag of clever features, the astral ships, and the dim satisfaction that automatically comes from levelling up - for free! It's just that none of these are very good reasons, because this isn't a very good game.
  4. A gorgeous world dogged by some terrible quest design. [Jun 2010, p.82]

    To be perfectly honest. The graphics and game is actually very satisfying. But, sadly to say, the quests are slow and frustrating, requiring you to run great distances and spend countless hours fighting your way back through respawns. If you love the grind and spend large amounts of time running great distances with characters that have laughable animations. You will enjoy this game. Also the weapons and armor really dont have any interest until you reach the top level. Full Review »

    this game is horrible. full of noobs and fat girls . the online store is way overpriced and you could get a mansion and a 69 year old hooker then spend all that money on a stupid horse you can ride along in wonderland with shrek and his man **** donkey. Full Review »

    Allods Online is a really detailed game, with interesting maps and monsters that vary from beautiful to scary to realistic. Leveling is quite easy, but it's essential, since it's almost impossible to kill a player one level above yours. It's PvP is based on League vs. Empire, which can be really exciting, especially when there are many of each faction. Although it's graphics are not really good, like in MMOs such as Perfect World and Forsaken World, it's maps, monsters and skills are exceptionally pretty. It's crafting system is a little odd, because you can only learn up to 2 crafting skills, among 7, making it obligatory for you either to make many friends in the game or to buy other player's stuff. It's an interesting game to play for about 6 months, until you get bored. Full Review »
