Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning Mac Beta Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Destructoid has posted a short review of the Mac beta of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning from Mythic Entertainment. The game features Realm vs Realm combat and allows players to enter a grim fantasy world where the armies of Order (Dwarfs, High Elves, and Empire) and Destruction (Greenskins, Dark Elves, and Chaos) collide to determine the fate of nations.
WAR for the Mac launched at the end of the July. Still in beta, the client isnít without its faults. Patching takes hours and a nasty bug causes the installer to freeze during the download process. But these are the only two issues Iíve noticed. The game is a smooth joint. The character animations are clean, the controls are responsive, the textures are impressive and the frame rate is steady. The Mac version of WAR is schedule for release in the Fall of 2009 and will allow Windows and OS X players to battle and quest together on the same servers.
Iíve played this port for a little over eight or so hours scattered over the course of several days. Because itís an older MMO, youíll have to take into account that my experience with the game has been in an area that is largely under populated by both characters and vicious villains. I have spent time in a few RvR conflicts and havenít noticed any lack of responsiveness or stutter.
