Review by Tom Chick:
"With a well-known franchise at the core, years of development and hype, and the marketing power of Electronic Arts behind it, "Warhammer Online" represents the most aggressive challenge yet to "World of Warcraft's" dominance in the high-risk/high-reward massively multiplayer online category. "Warhammer" matches its competitors in most categories and even exceeds them with its pervasive social options. Unfortunately, that advantage is outweighed by a steep learning curve that makes getting started a chore. Unless and until that and some technical problems are addressed, "Warhammer Online" will have a tough time drawing players away from the competition."
