Among MMO genres, sports-based games are incredibly hard to find. With a soccer game here and a hockey game there, the MMOs and sports really haven't meshed together as well as players would expect. Among its competitors, Empire of Sports stands alone as one of the few sports massively multiplayer online game that tries to integrate avatar advancement, social interactions and competitive gameplay into one package. Ten Ton Hammer's Cody "Micajah" Bye has taken the time to play the game, and he's got the final verdict on this MMO sports game!
As I mentioned in my first "In the Trenches" column, I've been involved in athletics for the majority of my life, from basketball, to pick-up soccer, to track and field. With that said, I have to admit that the actual competitions in Empire of Sports don't feel anything like what I would expect a sports game to feel like. Companies like EA and 2K Sports have made a killing off of the creation of very visceral, very authentic feeling sports games. Empire of Sports, on the other hand, feels like it was made by individuals who had never played sports in their lives.
