If World of Warcraft, a game to which Warhammer Online: Ageof Reckoning owes something of a debt, is a multi-faceted fantasy world that is dangerously easily to lose oneself, its rival is all about battle, pure and simple.

And because in life you can’t have a decent fight on your own, it’s other people that make this massive multiplayer war game so splendidly involving, absorbing and downright addictive. It’s not all good news, though, as myriad classes and inflexible elements make gameplay less smooth than it might be. But overlook that and this game will give you the chance to be part of a vast and glorious army.
