WAR: First Impressions at Videogamer.com

Posted Mon, Sep 22, 2008 by Taea

At Videogamercom, Wesley Yin-Poole has put together his first impressions of the new Mythic Entertainment game, Warhammer Online. Calling it "worth leaving WoW for", Yin-Poole gives an overly favorable "early review" of Warhammer.

For this reason we reckon WAR is going to have a much tougher time bringing new players into the MMO genre than WoW did when it was first released a few years ago. Sure, there will be fans of the Warhammer universe, perhaps players of the popular table-top game, who are sure to enter the fold. But WAR Online is, after all is said and done, unashamedly hardcore and, by its very nature baffling to anyone who's never played an MMO. Instead, we reckon Mythic's focus is to steal players from Blizzard's virtual world. This is something we can see it doing in spades.
