RPG Vault has released another one of their "first view" articles, this time offering commendations, reservations, and considerations for EA Mythic's Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
The Warhammer franchise provides a rich backdrop with extensive lore, several other armies that can be added, and a distinctive personality including liberal doses of humor. For PvP fans, there will be a strong inter-realm element in which the ultimate goal is to capture the capital city of your factional enemy, while others can focus on various types of quests. Based on limited hands-on time, the learning curve feels moderate, and the combat system, which offers both tactical and morale-based special attacks, seems to have a pace that's accessible but not too slow. The graphics are certainly competitive, with lots of opportunity for character customization.
