    The game feeds off the collective energies of hordes of competitive gamers and supplies a solid framework for clan competition. It is a game for those of us that enjoy hard won victories and difficult defeats.
  2. Masterfully simple, overwhelmingly addictive.
  3. It's also, inexplicably, the most popular online role-playing game in the world...It looks old, it plays poorly, and its opening levels are so frustrating that there's a good chance you'll never make it to the interesting stuff.
  4. And really, Lineage isn’t much fun. [Feb 2002, p.80]
  5. If you have been wondering why so many South Koreans are so excited about this game...well, you'll still be wondering after you play it.

    Years of gameplay available in this game....sadly it doesn't exsist anymore in the US except the random few Private Servers.....Would still be playing this game today if it was still around...q.q

    Takes a solid month to just get used to what your actually supposed to be doing but once you get there...there is no turning back.....

    Very addictive game....sort of an action chat room, however, beware of some other players who like to spoil your fun....also, servers sometimes get crowded, causing inopportune disconnects and game lag. Full Review »
