IGN: Warhammer Online Early Start Hands-On

Although it doesn't "officially" launch until later this week, EA and Mythic Entertainment on Sunday opened the doors to Warhammer Online for those customers who had pre-ordered the collector's edition of the game. On Tuesday, those who pre-ordered the regular edition will be allowed early entry, and on Thursday, the game officially hits store shelves and the servers will open to everyone who buys it then. IGN was in the first group, so they installed the game on Friday evening so that, on Sunday, they could begin playing the game for the review.

The story is too old to be commented.

This "preview" if you can call it that is totally devoid of any real content that isn't readily available in the hundreds of open beta spreads out there. Plus there isn't much of an impression to write about when you're one of the few groups to play the game before the head start. A MMO isn't an MMO until the masses of humanity are flooding the servers and over jamming the newbie zones.

The rule for a MMO should be as such: Unless the reviewer have played the game all the way to the high end levels then don't bother with the write ups. Lets not forget the fiasco that is the Age of Conan hype reviews. The first 30 levels is a magical experience while the rest of the game is an empty shell.

"The first 30 levels is a magical experience while the rest of the game is an empty shell."

sorry cant agree with you there, I didnt have any magical experience, I thought the game was total poo, and I'm a funcom fan since anarchy online was launched, I wanted AoC to do really well, I even carried on playing many hours after it stopped being fun, but from the first few minutes I didnt like it at all, feels like a game that should have been released 5 years ago (and thats with all graphics on max settings).
