And the game I had the most fun with tonight was…

…Lineage 2?
Has the world flipped upside down? I logged into every MMO under-the-sun (that I have installed), including Warhammer Online, World of Warcraft, Vanguard, City of Heroes, and FFXI – but the game that hooks me in for a few hours is Lineage 2?

They’ve really streamlined the “newbie experience” and I was actually enjoying grinding, but also doing the pretty-well implemented quests that give you gigantic chunks of exp. now apparently. This game has the hardcore and oldschool/grind appeal that I found so refreshing in FFXI, but it feels more user-friendly in it’s design.

I’m only on a trial account of course, but I had fun tonight. I’ll be back tomorrow.

The highest pop server is the main EURO server, but I ping pretty bad to it – so I chose the server that I’ve heard from word-of-mouth has the most people rerolling alts and such. I talked to one little dwarf I saw and she said she was an alt, had to ask her for help finding an NPC.

    I’ll post some more impressions the next time I get to play, hopefully today! I’m tempted to go out and snag the Lineage 2 Anniversary edition retail box – but I know I should just keep playing the trial and see ><

  3. […] a new game. I will usually know within the first three days if I will stick around. With Lineage 2, I definitely knew within just a few hours that I wanted to start playing it as my main MMO. The trial sold me and I was at the store picking […]

  4. There are usually two types of people who play Lineage 2: those who quit in less than a week of playing and those who stays until the end of time.
