Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Reviews

  • New Review

    Atomic Gamer has weighed in with their thoughts on the newly released Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    The world of Vanguard is colorful and often lush, but there's just something missing in the art design that I feel holds the game back. There are few places that require you to "zone" and the overall look is one of realism rather than the cartoony charm of World of Warcraft, but I still feel that the world is missing something here. Maybe it's that charm, but I do know that whatever the world of Telon is missing, the worlds of Star Wars Galaxies didn't have it either.

  • New vanguard Review

    GameSpy has weighed in with their thoughts on the newly released Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    If you were a fan of the original EverQuest, or find World of Warcraft to be unchallenging to the point of boredom, then Vanguard was made with you in mind. It's a game for those who don't mind or even crave punishment when things don't go according to plan, for those to whom mishaps must be disastrous for victories to have meaning. You will be penalized harshly for character death. Many times in your adventuring career, you will find it difficult and time-consuming to fully recover from these deaths, having to trek back to your tombstone and then make up lost experience.

  • Vanguard Saga of Heroes - First Impressions

    Gamepyre.com has posted their thoughts so far on Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    This game had been generating quite a bit of buzz around it prior to the release, so I was interested to check it out. I must say, that I am not disappointed so far. It seems as if they have looked at all the other MMOs on the market, and found out what players like and dislike, and then kept that in mind when designing the game.

  • RPG Watch Reviews Vanguard

    RPG Watch has weighed in with their early impressions of the newly released Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    Potential may be the keyword for Vanguard. If World of Warcraft is that nerdy kid at school who has enough personality to get along with most everyone and have a decent number of female friends, Vanguard is the hulking geek that polarizes the masses into loving him for his interesting complexity or hating him for his dogmatism and outmoded eccentricity.

  • Yahoo Games Reviews Vanguard

    Yahoo Games has posted their thought about the recently released Vanguard: Saga of Heroes...

    So there we are, killing a couple of giant bees on a cliff overlooking the city of Khal. Guildmates are chatting about traveling across the vast and magnificent landscape of Telon, the setting for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. Someone jokingly suggests Druid Circles, which allowed players in the original EverQuest to teleport quickly around the world. Immediately, one guildmate responds: "I don't want any teleportation. The harder they make this game, the happier I'll be."

  • Put on some walking shoes, because this game requires Forest Gump-like endurance.

    GameDaily weighs in with their review of the recently released Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    Geographically, this fantasy massively multiplayer online (MMO) role-playing game has it all, including wide rolling hills, towering mountains and a practically endless ocean. Of course, danger lurks around every corner, so players must take care when exploring it. It would take months to put the "If you can see it, you can get there (via walking, riding, sailing or flying)" tag line to the test, but it seems to hold true. The promise that players would encounter practically no load screens while traversing the world also holds up. Created by the same minds behind EverQuest, Vanguard represents a new generation in MMO games in just about every respect.

  • Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Updated Hands-On - The First Week

    Gamespot weighs in with their impressions of the newly released Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

    Once we decided upon a wood elf bard, it was time to customize his features. You can mold a variety of characteristics, from nose length to ear height, with adjustment sliders, and this allowed us to create a unique-looking character. While the system isn't as limiting as the one in World of Warcraft, it doesn't have the sheer number of options found in games such as Star Wars Galaxies or EverQuest II. However, in a nice touch, Vanguard lets you save the physical template of your characters so that if you want to start over with an existing character, you don't need to re-create its look.

    GameSpy.com has posted their impressions of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes as they booted it up today!

    Vanguard opened up its servers early this weekend so that pre-order customers can get a head start on those who pick up the game at retail this week. While the servers were up and down intermittently, and lag spikes were a noticeable problem, for the most part players were able to get started on an endeavor that could easily consume the next year or two of their lives.
