War is everywhere in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, the new fantasy MMORPG from the creators of Dark Age of Camelot. Warhammer Online features next generation Realm vs. Realm (RvR) game play that will immerse players in a world of perpetual conflict for years to come. Based on the famous Games Workshop licence created 25 years ago, the popular Warhammer fantasy world is one of the most elaborated to date.

Dominated by force of arms and magic, Warhammer Online provides a rich setting for players to experience the glory of battle and the epic nature of a war ravaging the Old World. Players can experience many different kinds of adventures, with the chance to play together as a group or individually, through different types of PvP (Player vs Player) or PvE (Player vs Environment). Every aspect of the game - every player, every quest, every encounter, and every battle - can turn the tide of the ongoing war and mean victory for your Realm!

First thing I have to say is the collectors edition is HUGE, when the courier rolled up and dumped this knee buckling package into my arms at first I wondered what it could be,... however I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered it was my Collectors Edition.

It hould also be noted (because it isnt in the main item description) that the prelude graphic novel and Art book are not only beautiful and full colour but they are both Hardbound (hence the weight). The miniature was nice though not quite the epic (much assembly required as is typical of GW miniatures) I was expecting but it is a good figure(s) all the same.

The bonus Quests and items in game and the Custom Heads are a nice touch too, the orc head I liked Especially, the others varying in quality (as an aside it should be noted once applied to a character you dont have the option to unapply it, so if you dont like it once its applied yourpretty stuck, which can be annoying as you cant really see the true look of the custom heads in the character panel very well, only at the Charcter Selection screen..so try and find some screenshots on the web first if I were you).

The game itself is a nice new MMO I have to say as someone who is a PVE'er by preference I have also been enjoying the RVR side of this game too, more so than I thought I would(and largely because of the no real death penalty aspect to the game). I should also note many of th best items I have found in game to ate have come off RVR kills (and no the loo they sometimes drop doesnt come from the killed player but is randomly generated).

The Game itself has a look and feel that will appeal to many WoW players, though doesnt run anywhere near as smoothly and lag free as Blizzars game if im honest, but with the game being so new and server populations being so high on some servers I guess the lag is to be expected for a while until things settle down.

The Games Classes on both sides Order and Destruction are enjoyable and many of them have thier own mechanics with relation to their ability use (balancing high magic for Arhcmages, Stances for Swordmasters etc..) so they all have thier own learnng curves, whic are easily mastered.

The familiar archetypes are all present, healers, ranged DPS, Tanks etc.. though due to Mastery Paths that become available the base classes can go outside of these roles and into others, which makes for a very unpredictable battleground, which is nice as it keeps things lively.

The Game lost a number of clases pre-launch due to balance issues and lack of individuality so the class options for all the races arent equal.. the Dar Elves dont have a tank class for example to begin with as the Black Guard was one of the classes removed, but this doesnt detrac too much as thier are plenty of options.

The Game also has som nice touches in the form of the Tome of Knowledge, which not only allows you to earn experience, rewards andtitles for achievements based on killing, exploring, questing, even silly things like clicking on yoursel, or littering.. but it becomes a great way of introducing peopleto the World of Warhamme, its places, people, denizens and story and will be something people constantly finding themselves turning to and reading.

As another note I would say the Public Quests in game ( bit like open air instances lol) are a great touch,basically anyone can enter the aea and take part, earning influence (which can be turned in for rewards anyway), but also through participatng earning a chance at the loot for completing the public quests.. also the more you stay in a public quest the better your chances of winning so they arent set up so that only the pure DPS characters can only benefit, everyone has a chance

 Great Game - no problems

First off i would like to say that those people who wrote that the discs don't work were wrong, infact if they'd bothered to read the instruction manual it would tell you how to use the discs when Autorun doesn't pop up.
As for the game, the graphics are the best of any current MMORPG, hence the relatively high system specifications, and the servers are great, i've been in battles with over 80 people and i didn't get an ounce of lag, which is more than i can say for certain others *cough* WoW *cough*.
The game itself is great, easy to pickup but if you master it, it will pay off in fights, and on the subject of fights each one is different, you always have to be on your feet, but if you don't have the skill then stick to WoW.
The lore is great, you could spend hours reading it if that's what your into, and there is a fair bit of PVE and PVP, even though many people would have you believe there is no PVE.
Anyway for £17.99 how can you say no? The books alone are worth that!

 A great professionally done collectors

Some collectors edition boxsets look a bit shabby and provide poor quality bits inside.

The warhammer online one, doesnt.
Right from when you first see it you think..wow this is huge.
This continues as you open it. Inside you find 2 lovely hardback books (a comic and an art book)
Below this comes the game in a lovely plain case and the exclusive minatures

Ontop of this you get a mousemat

The whole thing just screamed class, perfect for a warhammer or gaming fan.

 well worth it

This is an excellent bargain for anyone who has followed the game for years/warhammer fans/video game collectors it just screams value for money the art book is full of fantastic art which shows the old world in all its glory, the graphic novel also has some brilliant art work and gives an insight into how the races became embroiled in the current war the figure comes unassembled and unpainted so if you're not into warhammer this may be slightly pointless and the uk version comes with a further feature a brilliant mouse mat. I haven't had time to explore all the in game bonus I've tried one of the heads the empire male and if there all like that then I'll be more than happy the other in game features such as quests and titles can only be a good thing to further distinguish your character from the thousands of others which are bound to be in game once this game gets going, so I reiterate if you're a fan of this game this should be a definite purchase

 Reccomend to all MMO fans.
