Start your engines: first review up

Eurogamer has a review up of WAR (it’s not actually the first review, but possibly first since closed beta — in a non-blog at any rate). And it’s good.

It’s been obvious for some time now that Warhammer Online would be fighting-fit for its launch, and that’s absolutely the case. With those final troublesome crash bugs eradicated, the game boasts sturdy networking, stable servers, rare bugs, a functional and detailed interface, a lavish amount of quests and play styles, and a reasonably if not spectacularly well-optimised engine (the frame-rate struggles a little more than it should, although most landscapes are more than usually busy with monsters and NPCs). With the account-creation problems of European operator GOA now ironed out, this is a very solid gaming experience, by MMO standards.

They gave it 8/10.  (Cheap bastards 😉 )

And in other news, it looks as though the authentication is back up on the GOA site.

  1. I hate when MMO’s are reviewed so early. It just doesnt hold water

  2. I thought it was a good review actually. They’ve gone into some detail about what they liked and what they didn’t, and how things change at higher levels.

    It’s always awkward reviewing an MMO, but people will want to know what to expect before they buy it. And I think that one was fair.
