    Hello! I doubt anyone knows or remembers me, but I played Mortal Online with Kingdom of Wessex. I have quite a bit of experience with the game. I pre-ordered and was in Beta Block A. I played off-and-on since with Kingdom of Wessex, but quit when we disbanded some time ago.

    Anyways, I am a game Journalist for OnRPG.com and I was searching through our library of games and I noticed that we lacked a review for Mortal Online. I talked to the Editor-in-Chief and he gave me the go-ahead to review the game on behalf of OnRPG.

    Honestly, I don't know when I will begin playing the game to review it. I am thinking sometime next week. I already have a very good understanding of Mortal and SV, so I will mostly be updating myself on the game, seeing how much Awakening has come along (I subbed for Awakening when it was released, but didn't play much honestly). I just thought I would warn the community and hopefully get a guild to play with lined up before I actually start playing.

    If you have anything you would like me to keep in mind while writing the review, please let me know.

    I also added in a Poll to get an idea if anyone from Mortal is familiar with OnRPG.

    Next patch is supposed to fix some of the issues with the current AI.

    I could write a review currently with my experiences thus far in the game, and honestly, I've already written a good portion of the review. The playtest is mostly to experience the new AI with Awakening, which I have next to no experience with, and the other Awakening features. When I played after Awakening, I spent all of my time inside Tindrem and I was playing Darkfall at the same time, so I didn't actually play the game much during that time.

    I feel that it would be unfair to review the game without giving Awakening a real chance, as it changes a large portion of the game.

    People are free to play it after they pay the monthly fee?

    This might be the first review by someone who actually likes full loot open world PvP games!

    Not sure the industry is ready for that... :p

    (How will people relate without comparing it to WoW?)

    Will have to see the rest but it seems too shiny to be a review of MO. :)

    I hope the rest of the review shows some of the rougher edges because if people come here expecting a squeaky clean game then they are going to be very disappointed.

    Guess we will wait for part 2, but I agree with what Sebastion said above. All a review like this will do is set people up for disapointment.

    Would have been better to give a realistic view of the game. Telling people things like "the controls in Mortal Online are perfect", man that is just nuts.

    But maybe you open up with the nice things to get interest and then bring reality in part 2. I will check back tomorrow.

    In motivational speaking there is an expression when dealing with people to get them motivated and focused.

    Build break build.

    Meaning build them (it) up, break them (it) down, Build them (it) up.

    This would work for presenting a game as well...

    Build it up get them excited, give them the cold hard reality, finish it up on a high note to get them excited again (with no delusions of the reality of the game).
