Showing no fear of the fans of Warhammer Online, Brent at Virginworlds has published his thumbs-down opinion of the game. Calling the game play a boring repetition, he does give a slight nod the Mythic's new Public Quest system. To Brent, Age of Conan is a game with "heart, some beauty and some purpose," while WAR has none.
Having taken part in the variety of game play modes that Warhammer Online offers, I can say with complete confidence that this game might as well have been released 4 years ago as it offers us nothing aside from one standout evolutionary concept, the public quest, that moves the genre forward. Is Warhammer Online the worst massive title on the market? Not even close. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that the overall quality of its execution put its easily in the top handful. Will it be a commercial success? Yes. I have no doubt that this game will be the number two western-world subscription-based game, probably before the year is out, perhaps much sooner.
What do you think of Brent's opinion? Could he possibly be correct that AoC is a better game to play? Or is it possibly the M rating that shapes his opinion?
