I will preface this review with three questions, and if the answer is "Yes" to any of these questions then I suggest you give Mortal Online a long hard look; if you say "Yes" to all of these questions then stop reading this start downloading Mortal Online! --------------------Questions: 1. Are you tired and/or burnt out on all the MMORPGs out, or coming out, on the market?2. Do you want to play a game where EVERYTHING you do is an accomplishment and reinvigorates that sense of discovery you had when you played your first MMORPG?3. Does the idea of an open loot system (you lose everything you are carrying when you die) fill you with a sense of excitement and adventure?--------------------OverviewMortal Online is a Fantasy Sandbox MMORPG that takes familiar elements from games like Ultima Online and Runescape, and takes them to a whole new level. The entire game is played in first-person, and there is no functionality to change the view to third-person. All combat and actions within the game are based off of targeting with your reticle, so if you want to hit a boar in the head then you need to aim for it's head. Character progression is based on skill points rather than levels, and you only have so many skill points to use. You aren't safe anywhere, not even in cities, so always be on your guard, but don't turn into a jerk, just be wary.--------------------SkillsSkills are broken down into a ton of different categories that are based on Parent and Child relationships, so a player would need to learn Armor Crafting (to a certain skill level) before he/she can learn Soft Armor Crafting. Many skills you can begin learning just by attempting to do them, such as chopping down a tree or mining for ore, but other skills will need to be learned by reading skill books. Skill books can be obtained from Libraries (for a price) or from the Auction House, players can begin reading these (some can take 8 hours or more) and the reading timer will continue to countdown when the player logs off. I mentioned that you have a finite number of skill points to use, and in the beginning, you will burn through over half of these pretty quickly. Don't panic! You can lock skills that you don't want to increase anymore and you can even decrease skills you aren't going to use to get the skill points back to use on something else. This can be confusing at first, but this really allows the player total freedom in choosing what their character does without letting characters become masters of everything at once.--------------------CombatCombat is based on using your aiming reticle and blocking or dodging the attacks of your enemies. I haven't done much of this yet, besides slaughtering herds of innocent pigs, but I think it is very engaging, sort of a melding between Skyrim and Mount & Blade combat, but better.--------------------MagicNo comment at all on this, but it is very in depth, with required components for spells. Healing magic, for instance, can require water.--------------------CraftingThe crafting in this game is intense. I repeat: the crafting in this game is INTENSE. There are spreadsheets and emulators online that help players calculate the required components to create other components to finally (maybe) create the item they want to create. There is more than one way to make a particular piece of armor, and some components will make the end item heavier or cooler etc. I think this is an amazing part of the game, but it is not for the faint of heart.--------------------PvPMortal Online works on a flagging system. Here is the breakdown:Fledgling: YellowInnocent: BlueCriminal: GreyMurderer: RedHidden Criminal: Grey with Blue StripeBasically, if you do something negative to someone then you will be flagged Grey, unless that person was already Grey. The flagging system is one of the most important parts of MO to understand, so check out this Beginner's Guide for more information : http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=519329793.--------------------ConclusionMortal Online is a really in-depth game, but it is most certainly not for the casual player, and I don't mean the time-casual player, but the player that is more instant gratification. If you want your cake and eat it too then this game is not for you, but if you want to bake your cake, eat some of your cake, then sneak around to hide your cake in the bank until you can share it with your guild mates then this game is for you! You can try the game for free, and all F2P Accounts can use skills up to skill level 60. What that means is that you can raise your skills above skill level 60, but you can only use the skill at skill level 60. I highly recommend subscribing to the game if you are 8 hours in and enjoying it. The subscription costs less than other MMORPGs, and it is well worth it to support such an awesome game.--------------------Grimstein's Personal Tips1. Buy the Reading Skill Book (yes, that's an actual skill book) and begin reading that right away. That will allow you to read other skill books more efficiently.2. Find a Guild on the official MO forums.3. Get out of the starting city.4. Turn up your graphics and other options as high as you can.5. Only keep what you immediately need on you. Bank your money until you need to buy something, and keep your skill books in the bank until you want to start reading them.6. If you are going on a long journey, such as to join up with your new guild, bring along some food and bring everything you can with you. Banks are localized, and if you store something in Tindrem, you will have to go back to Tindrem to get it.--------------------I hope my review helped you make an informed decision. There is so much more to Mortal Online than I touched upon in this review, but I hope it gives you a taste of what's in store if you play. Good luck, and I hope to see you in Nave!Evris Grimstein. This game has its hit and misses, but it is definitely the most fun i've ever had playing a game.. Ive played this game on two seperate occasions and both times have come to the same conclusion.The only time you will get enjoyment out of this game is when you are with a group of friends, the rest of the game is a giant grind. I really wanted to enjoy this game, but it's hard when the community sucks so bad and you are limited to what you can do as a single person. If you really want to waste hours away trying somthing "new" (Actually Old) It's a solid game.I'm giving it the thumbs up for surviving this long and having players still, but I can't torture myself anymore.. Huge Learning Curve.. I've been playing MMORPGs since the late 90's and have been in several betas as a tester. So how does this game match up? Here is my synopsis of Mortal Online:Anyone over 35 years of age with the kind of time it takes to become established in a game like this needs to get laid and get a life. Everything in this game takes epic steps to achieve and the time cycles for simple things like reading a book takes forever. I wish everyone luck that I left behind lol. I may return ocassionally, but this won't become a hobby... This game will drain your soul :). Initially, the game concept appears to sound like a cross between skyrim and Mount & Blade, but it stops after you complete the tutorial area. At the very instant you finish the tutorial you are introduced to the wide open world that is known as Mortal Online. Firstly it is worth mentioning that there is a small group of players that sit outside the gates of the tutorial city waiting for new, ill-equipped players to appear so they can gang up on you, overwhelm, and kill you within seconds. I did not discover this from experience as much as I had people scream at me not to exit the city because apparently a clan regularly camps the "noob city" The community is helpful but at the same time rude and completely annoying. When I logged in the first thing I saw in the chatbox was about 6 people comparing the size of their character's junk, but we'll get onto that later. If you ever have the displeasure of hearing the barely functional speech option in the game, and manage to understand anything in the game aside from static, you will realize most of the players who are on this game are 12 years old or younger. Trust me, adults don't speak like the cast of Sesame street normally.On to the real deal, game mechanics. It's a weird puzzle of interesting concepts that are executed in horrible ways. The game uses the unreal engine, which has given us rather excellent looking games such as Red Orchestra 2 and Killing Floor, among many others. Unfortunately, the graphics in this game are far more akin to one of the games I compare it to, Mount and Blade, but lack all the features that make Mount and Blade interesting. The game's combat mechanics are more similar to Chivalry and Mount and Blade, but unlike both of those games, come off as clunky and broken in many cases, with the so-called emphasis on enemy weak points being completely pointless because striking the head of the enemy always does the most damage anyway. But this is a MMORPG, surely there are better features in it than just the combat and graphics? The game has interesting movement animations, and is completely in first person, but not immersive enough to become interesting. Permadeath isn't actually permadeath, it's just generalized respawn timers and a "spirit realm" that offers absolutely nothing to do while you wait. How do you die? well that's simple. Steal in front of a guard and he instantly hits you with a lightning bolt which will kill you no matter what you have. I tested this theory by grinding undead corpse heads until I had the best armor available, and he still kills you in 2 hits. He hits instantly, and there is no way of blocking magic explained in the tutorial. RPG mechanics? You learn new skills by reading books, they give you a starter book to read after you finish the tutorial. It takes 6 days real time to read the book, and there is no way of speeding up the process. There are features that are locked including max skills for "paying" players.I left the game before even trying to do real PvP because the PvE in the game was already so horrifyingly bad that it felt appropriate to quit. Never play this game, leave it to be one of the dead MMORPG games that fade into obscurity like the cancer they are.
