Vanguard - Review @ Stratics
Jumping the release just a little, Stratics is the first site to pump out a Vanguard review. The score is 9/10 and here's a grab:
There comes a time when you have to ask the question when working on computer programming projects (and make no doubt that’s what this is) you ask yourself are things good enough? Right now Vanguard is a solid MMO. Vanguard’s adventuring sphere rivals current games, and will rival those soon to be released. They’ve raised the bar on traditional crafting and turned it into a playful, engaging work out. And they were revolutionary with diplomacy; introducing it as a solid, creative game sphere. Future MMO developers will need to think long and hard about including diplomacy into their game design.
Is there enough content? Most emphatically, yes. Telon is big enough to provide five separate, level-appropriate, land masses for you to explore.
Is combat fun? Assuredly it is. There’s enough mob and dungeon variety to challenge everyone at all levels. They’ve begun testing raid content.
