Game Description and Comments
Despite being a solid MMORPG that has been ranked in GameOgre’s Top MMORPG List several times The Saga of Ryzom is not as known as MMORPGs like World of Warcraft City of Heroes EverQuest and Final Fantasy XI. The Saga of Ryzom is worth playing because it offers a compelling story that has not been done to death and you are given a huge amount of freedom to create your character the way that you want him or her to be.
The story of the game has a deep history that is unraveled slowly in order to create an air of mystery about it. You will need to read the game’s website and watch closely for it in the game to learn as much about the storyline as possible. The great community of the game has also contributed to making the story special.
Instead of being confined to certain levels or classes skills are what shape your character and you can advance in any skill tree that you want to. Unlike the wider0known MMORPGs like World of Warcraft and City of Heroes you don’t have to roll several different characters to try out all the different skills because one character can basically try them all. Of course you should focus primarily on the core skills for your character but having the option to be creative is one feature that the bigger MMOs definitely need to take a closer look at.

Comment: I started playing this game about 2 months ago and I must say that I’m very impressed with many aspects of it from the beautiful graphics to the easy user interface. This game is highly customizable and the players are very friendly. If you want a game with a truly unique story and new characters and mobs give Ryzom a try!
Comment: I played this game for the free trial and I have to say that it has a lot of potential. I like the multi class system where anyone can be anything the graphics are awesome and the experience and battle system is pretty good. On the other hand their hit detection system is very bad. Invisible walls are everywhere even on cliffs and beaches 3 feet above the water. The map is also very difficult to understand as it doesn’t show much detail.
But any flaw in a game is fixable. I think this game will be 3rd behind ddo and wow with a little fine tuning.
Comment: I’ve been playing MMORPGs since late 1998. So far this is by far the best MMORPG I’ve found. The graphics in this game are absolutely astonishing so very impressive. I got EQII right before I found SoR.
I decided to try the free trial. On my 4th day I set EQ on the curb after many years of game play and let EQII rest right beside it. I’ve also played DAoC for a couple years Horizons and many more.
One of my favorite things about this game is that you’re never stuck with one class. One character can be EVERY class. This saves a ton of time and frustration for me if I get tired of working on a skill. I used to have a bad habit of what we call “re-rolling” basicly just keep making different chars until you’re happy with something. Not the case here. Do whatever you want whenever you want. This game is huge too. I’ve been playing for a while now and I never run out of new places to explore.
The Saga of Ryzom is a pay-to-play MMORPG that has a 7 day free trial. This game charges $14.95 on a monthly basis but offers discounts for paying over longer periods of time. The game can be downloaded from the game’s website and is over 1.5 GB.
