IMG reviewer Chris Ritchie has just posted a review for Wolfpack Studios' massively mulitplayer role-playing game Shadowbane.

Set in a dark fantasy world burning with strife and unrest, Shadowbane takes the MMO genre to new heights of possibility by offering gamers an unparalleled challenge. It combines immersive role-playing with deep strategic elements such as city management, army creation, siege warfare and economic development. Shadowbane is also the first MMO to offer a Dynamic World Model, in which players' actions and decisions permanently change the history, politics and landscape of the game.

The Ubi Soft title, which has been in the works for over four years, has been expected to redefine the gaming genre since news of the game started being spread early in development. Has the game lived up to its expectations?

Fans of RPGs in general will enjoy how this game is run, and those with lots of patience will be rewarded when they gain enough levels to start taking part in the in-game politics. Having the major purpose of the game to make player characters interact is a laudable goal, something that has been absent in even some of the most successful pay-to-play games.
