Game Description and Comments

Silkroad Online is a free 3D MMORPG that centers on the SilkRoad that connected ancient Chinese Islam and European civilizations. Although the game delves considerably into fantasy SRO does employs some real world elements such as trading and frequent pillaging by bandits. The game is also based on different fables from various European/Asian cultures. In fact SRO is one of the few MMOs to actually divide its persistent world into a historical region and a fantasy region. The historical region includes Chan’an Tunhuang Hotan Teheran Baghdad and Constantinople while the fantasy region includes Takla Makan to Hotan Gollyun Mountain Himalayas and Cheonchukguk (India). Due to this interesting backdrop and the game’s gorgeous graphics SRO is currently one of the best ranked games on the Review Directory’s Top Ten.

Comment: It is beautiful and it is better than World of Warcraft. In fact it is still beta and gets better server attention than WOW. The game has several roles that resemble real life. A merchant trades to get money a thief steals to get money and a hunter kills thieves and help traders to get money. The graphics are beautiful even on a low grade system.

  1. Seems like a pretty good MMORPG. Character customization is nice featuring options for gender, figure (a preset of different character looks), height, body, arms (weapons), and cloth (armor). Overworld in the game from what I’ve seen looks neat, with excellent use of shadow and lighting, like it’s using a more modern engine. As for gameplay, I like this game’s use of themes and how it explores different civilizations. Overall, I’d rate this game a 4.5/5; for a game originating from 2005, it looks like the developer took the time to improve the game over the years.
