Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Review

The Hachiko is offering an early review of Mythic’s newly released Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, giving it a 4.5/5.

The quests are handled like other MMORPGs, though throughout all my travels I’ve yet to run into a quest limit. Characters with open quests appear with a green thought bubble over their head, which when clicked on will give you a little story, what you need to do, and then the rewards you’ll get for completing the quests. NPC characters will also have yellow thought bubbles over their head to show that they are the location you need to turn certain quests in at, while an orange thought bubble over their head means that you’ve completed one of their quests and can now turn it in.

Though many MMORPGs do a good job at telling you where to head in order to complete a quest, it can still be difficult knowing exactly where to go, or even sometimes remembering where a specific place is located. Warhammer Online handles this problem perfectly, as the game will put a glowing red area on your map whenever you pick a quest up, indicating what area you need to go to in order to finish your task. The red highlighted areas will also tell you the exact quest name whenever you mouse over the area and the criteria, so it isn’t like you’re ever wandering into an area and still have no idea what to do. Some players might think that simplifies the game, but I find it a welcomed addition, as the game still won’t hold your hand and simply give you the quest, as you’ll still have to battle enemies and search the land properly.
