  • Summary: As the name suggests, one of the main elements of "Chapter II: The Elven Prophecy" will be the introduction of the elves as a playable race.

  1. Ticks all the right boxes expected of sub-based MMORPG, but you can happily play without spending a cent. [Dec 2009, p.98]
  2. You can play this game without paying any fees! But the mount alone is the €10 worth you have to pay for the boxed version. Compared with the original software about the technical specifications nothing has changed.
  3. The free add-on to Runes of Magic offers a new starting area , two new classes, one new race, four areas and a higher maximum character level. It's just more of the same and full of stereotypes, but Runes of Magic is still the best free MMORPG.
  4. It’s not groundbreaking in any way, but what it does offer is a solid MMORPG that can be just as engaging as the likes of WOW and yet is completely free. This game has quashed the age old myth that free games lack quality.

    For being a f2p MMO, RoM is insanely fully featured. Is it a perfect game? No, but it's free to play basically until the end-game, so try it and if you don't like it, stop playing. Expand

    Just a flat out ugly grind fest. Oh, and it takes famous music from titles such as Oblivion and The Little Mermaid too.
