    For anyone who is looking for an old school MMO Albion Online is a perfect fit.

    There's nothing quite like Albion Online in the modern climate of MMOs, and frankly, it's a breath of fresh sandbox air.

    Albion Online remains very motivating despite the large grind, thanks to the many and freely selectable options for character development.

    Albion Online is a fun sandbox MMORPG with a clever progression mechanic and deep player-economy. The mid to late game grind and hardcore nature might turn away anyone looking for a more casual experience.
  5. 60
    Albion Online, the brand new MMO PvP game, from the Berlin-based studio Sandbox Interactive, is portrayed as a sandbox MMO with a player-driven economy and robust PvP. However, it falls short on both its promise and entertainment value. With thousands of players online simultaneously, a huge landmass to explore, and plenty of room for Guild vs Guild combat, Albion Online has potential to be an outstanding experience — but this is yet to be the case.
  6. Albion Online is the best game to remember old school MMOs' and somehow the worst of the new ones.

    You could kindly call Albion Online old-school or hardcore, which might appeal to gamers with a nostalgia for the days of corpse runs, griefing, and ganking. Less graciously, you could say it is repetitive, cynical, uninspired, and opaque. In truth, MMORPGs that survive their infancy often grow into very different games than they were at launch. Patches and player input often have a way of shaping a game for the better, and given time, Albion Online may evolve as well.

    EXCELLENT GAME !
    slighty P2W but if you semi hardcore you won't need spend money.
    Not very casual friendly but it evolved the very good way

    Over 2,000 hours. Open world, market controlled by players, full loot pvp. This game is not ideal because of the strange decisions of developers :(

    Over this crap game. I got it because the ads say " There's a place for everyone, find yours. a sandbox mmo that has something for everyone".Over this crap game. I got it because the ads say " There's a place for everyone, find yours. a sandbox mmo that has something for everyone". utter bull **** the entire game is geared towards pvp and if you want to get ahead quickly you need premium which if you want to use in game money is 10mil sliver. or 12$ real dollars a freaking month, and for what? to have your **** taken by lazy ass players who would rather gank your non pvp ass because they don't want to do the grind like every one else.

    Do you just enjoy the gather/crafting side of the game? tough **** everything you spent all day gathering/making is gone in seconds. do you enjoy farming and raising animals? well get used to spending all of your time on your island, which you need premium to get btw, to only log in once a day because there is a 22 **** hour timer on the farming. Not a single thing in this game has value because "lolz pvp full lot" wtf am i spending all my time gathering/crafting/farming for if it has 0 value? There is more pvp **** to do than non pvp **** this is also the only mmo i've played that cant figure out how controls work. qwerdf are hot keys of all damn things, and you click/hold to move instead of, oh idk every other damn computer game ever that uses wasd to move, 1-5 for hot keys and click/hold for a camera.

    the only thing that is funny is with out us, the ones who only enjoy the crafting/gathering/farming, there would be no resources for the pvpers, they would have to stop being lazy and do it them damn selves then they can see "oh getting ganked is total **** Doesn't matter what gear you have if there are enough of these **** pvpers in a group your ass is down and your **** is gone, 0 protection for gathers and non pvpers. oh you want to craft/gather more than t4? tough **** risk all your stuff by going into the red zone that has the higher tear materials.

    Want to water your crops/nature your animals? nope needs focus and focus is premium, sorry. Want to get more yeild on something you are gathering? nope need premium, want to pay less tax at the market? oope need premium, because of course you do. Want more fame/money? yep premium. want 20 free learning points? guess what of **** course you need premium.

    First few mins made you feel like there was a story but like the ads its total bs, do not waste your time find a better mmorpg to play

    Completely buggy game lacking any content or thought to the design. Even simple things such as UI are completely underdeveloped and buggedCompletely buggy game lacking any content or thought to the design. Even simple things such as UI are completely underdeveloped and bugged out. Save your money. Developers do not listen to the community or their feedback and seem only interested in spending their money on marketing, not any development.

    Game design forces everyone into zerg style play(in the +1 mentality, where overwhelming numbers is more important than any semblance of skills) not just in the fight mechanics, but the hoards of guild slaves needed to finance the extremely high costs of the guild leader's gear in the 5v5s. However, the game architecture can't even handle the zerg vs zerg is forces everyone into and it turns into a laggy mess with disconnects any time people try to engage in how the developers purportedly designed the game to be played instead of solo or in small groups(which the CEO of the company said the game was not made for) that the game consistently punishes you for.
