Strategy Informer reviewsLineage II and concludes:
Lineage II has some strong points and an appealing art style but the shear scale of the grind for both experience and material possessions is daunting and would be for even seasoned gamers. For all the pet systems, castle sieges and interesting environments to crawl through on occasion Lineage II soon loses its shine from numbing repetition. Even these latest revival attempts by NCSoft, like duelling, donít seem enough to bring much life back into the game. If youíre a casual MMO gamer and like the nice quiet solo life then look elsewhere Ė co-operation is vital in the later stages for increasing wealth and your characters power, itís just too bad the chat and group system makes that too, a chore.
