Average User Score: 6.0Oct 16, 2012I've played many MMORPGs including most recently Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft, yet for some reason I keep returning to Runes of Magic.I've played many MMORPGs including most recently Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft, yet for some reason I keep returning to Runes of Magic. Yes, the engine has its quirks and the graphics are a bit dated. But what makes it a great game is the customization of gear and instances that require a lot of strategy. This game is geared towards the more hardcore RPG players in the sense that it takes at least half a year to crack end-game and for some it takes longer than a year. In contrast, I reached ilvl 394 in WoW in just over 1 month of play in February of 2012 when I had never played WoW before, granted I was very lucky with the drops and joined a small DS 6/8 Heroic guild after one week and was running heroic DS after 3 weeks. They were all 400+ and so I got almost all the drops. Guild Wars is also geared towards more casual RPG gamers where reaching "end game" is easily attainable.
Sure, this game has many flaws, but the core game play and customization sets it apart.… Expand

This game is one of the best semi-casual games out there that takes at most 1 hour for a very long game to complete. The community is thriving, the support is responsive, and the content continues to evolve. In fact, at a rate of one champion per month, it may be safe to say that there may be too many champions now given only three slots to ban and the increase issue with balance. Perhaps some champions should be retired.
While the game itself great, what distinguishes League from the rest is the professional eGaming scene that seems to keep growing. Game on!… Expand
