Let’s face it; even if we say otherwise, graphics are still an important aspect of a game. We’d like to think at times that things like gameplay, story and music are more important than graphics but let’s face it, a game that looks terrible can ruin an otherwise excellent MMO. But also keep in mind that graphics alone can’t salvage an otherwise bad title. What really surprises me about this list is how far free MMORPGs / MMOs have evolved, as most of the titles below look just as good as any pay to play game. Without further adu, the MMOHut official top 5 most graphically impressive MMORPGs / MMOs are:
5. RF Online
I think I’ll get a lot of disagreements about RF Online making it to the list, but for some reason I feel that the game’s graphics are incredibly sharp. Sure it’s not the best game, but it has some great visuals and some unique game music.
4. Atlantica Online
This beauty is considered one of the best free MMORPGs of all times. With its unique turn based gameplay and large playerbase Atlantica Online is certainly a lot more than just an MMORPG with a pretty face. Its combat closely resembles that of traditional turn based RPGs for the console.
3. Perfect World
Perfect World is perhaps best known for its amazingly detailed character customization, but the game should also be known for its stellar graphics. Upon cranking this game’s visuals to maximum on a high resolution monitor, everything from the game’s character models to environments truly resemble a ‘perfect world’.
2. Project Torque
Even though Project Torque is now at least a year or so old, the game is still considered one of the best looking free MMOs out there. Just about every aspect of this game from the detailed environments to the car models are incredibly polished. If you’re looking for a solid realistic fast paced racing game, Project Torque is well worth trying out.
1. Sword of the New World (Granada Espada)
Aside from having the best music in any free MMORPG, Sword of the New World also has top notch graphics. On top of having some of the best visuals and audio of any game, Sword of the New World has incredibly unique and polished gameplay.
