Runes of Magic Review

There’s lost of reasons why RoM is so popular – it is very polished and runs smoothly even on mid-end computers; it has tons and tons of content; the graphics are really superb and a bit quirky, not your usual cookie-cutter fantasy at all; and, lastly, it’s free. While it is not particularly innovative, it’s a solid MMO that most gamers, especially first-timers, will enjoy.

Note that this is one game that has frequently been called a WoW clone because it rather looks and feels a bit like that bestselling MMORPG. This can be either good or bad depending on whether you actually want to play a free game like World of Warcraft. Some people like that, some don’t.

Another point to consider is the sheer number of players. RoM has a large and active playerbase which is a big plus.
