Top 5 MMOs / MMORPGs with the Best Graphics

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.

It's interesting to see that there isn't any P2P mmo's on that list, it provides food for thought that free mmo's is able to provide better graphics than the ones you have to pay for, food for thought indeed.

But then again, gaming isn't all about graphics and if we were to see it in extremes, i would prefer the dated looking game that has good gameplay and a nice community over the top flashy game with little substance and the kind of people you would usually encounter while searching for pugs in WoW (On a pvp server i might add).

But that's just if we only see it black & white.

I would agree that number one has decent graphics but the rest are really weak.

I would say Age of Conan and  Eve Online have the nicest graphics. Aion looks like it might have nice ones too. (Havent gotten any released videos yeat.)

Why isn't Guild Wars there? It has been and still is a top graphics MMO.

And World of Warcraft may not have realistic graphics, but the cartoony type of graphics works extremely well.
