This all-new game, developed and published by NCsoft, is a prequel to their blockbuster hit, Lineage. Set 150 years before Lineage, as the kingdom of Aden becomes a unified state, Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle is designed to show the struggles that take place during a time where several provinces come under one rule. Old loyalties must change, new structure must be established and national sovereignty and pride must be formed. However, a group of lands coming under single rule doesn't equate to immediate peace... In this world, many players fight for control over any and every piece of the new kingdom. [NCsoft] Expand

  1. Lineage II will be as revolutionary as "EverQuest" was for its time, and we are looking at the benchmark that all other MMORPGs (retail and free) will have to hold a candle against.
  2. If Lineage II has one main problem, it is that it is a treadmill supported by an economic system that is inane.
  3. One part that really sparkles however is the graphics; the Lineage world is one with a stunning backdrop, large, sparkling cities will surely take your breath away.
  4. Despite the fact that the whole purpose of the game is to sock it to your fellow players, Lineage II is accomplishing something that other MMOGs have been trying to do for years, it gets the players to actually work together. To me, that fact is pretty huge.
  5. Depending on how you look at it, Lineage II offers either a repetitive grind or a stiff challenge. In any case, the game isn't suited for more casual players who may only have time to play for 30 minutes to an hour.
  6. If you’re a casual MMO gamer and like the nice quiet solo life then look elsewhere – co-operation is vital in the later stages for increasing wealth and your characters power, it’s just too bad the chat and group system makes that too, a chore.
  7. There isn't much variety in character appearance, which is disappointing, since other games are offering an incredible amount of customizability. [Aug 2004, p.74]

    There is one way to get fun from this game - DO NOT PLAY IT ON THE GLOBAL.. rates are just too low, you'll get bored out of your ground, There is one way to get fun from this game - DO NOT PLAY IT ON THE GLOBAL.. rates are just too low, you'll get bored out of your ground, by leveling up and getting enough adena to buy a decent equipment.. Since i play it on private server with exp an sp rates x6, adena x8 and drop rates x15 , IT DOES MAKE SENSE to kill a lot of monsters.. :) And don't do any quests other than those you need to do, like profession change quests.. Quest system sucks, just as the reward system.. And they're really boring.. Expand

    Ehh, what a cool MMORPG was ... Remember how we gathered a party, how we got the second professional? There were times ... But right now, theEhh, what a cool MMORPG was ... Remember how we gathered a party, how we got the second professional? There were times ... But right now, the game went to **** after the departure of one of the developers. It feels like this is a roblox game, albeit with an even bigger donation. As for me, the main version of L2 is such **** that only a child or a mentally retarded person will play it. Essence is even more or less good, but there is a lot of donation. And the classic is a pathetic parody of the L2 that we lost ... Expand
