Three World of Warcraft Spoofs

Everyone knows how wildly successful World of Warcraft has been around the world, and I’m surprised MMORPG developers waited so long to make knock offs of it. There is nothing wrong with borrowing some of the successful features of a competitor but the following games are shameless knock offs; 4Story, Talisman Online and the upcoming Runes of Magic MMO game. When I say “shameless knock offs” I mean the developers seriously looked at World of Warcraft and copied every aspect of the game to the best of their abilities.

For your Reference; A screen shot from World of Warcraft

4Story

When I first started playing 4Story I was shocked by how similar it was to World of Warcraft. Everything from the games graphics to the interface looked just like World of Warcraft. There is no doubt that World of Warcraft is a good game, so logic dictates that if someone copies World of Warcraft, that game will be good as well. This is true for the most part, as game play is generally fun, but if you’ve played World of Warcraft before, playing 4Story will feel like a cheap knockoff. The game is still worth checking out if you’ve never played World of Warcraft before or you don’t want to pay for it.

Talisman Online


Talisman Online looks even more like a cheap knockoff of World of Warcraft. It’s clear that the game tried to copy World of Warcraft’s interface and graphics, but it only succeeded half way. If you look at the game’s spell icons they look almost identical to the spell icons from World of Warcraft. Take a look at the Ice bolt icon, it’s the same exact icon from World of Warcraft! The graphics are a bit jagged to, but other than that; the games are pretty similar; minus the fact that Talisman is obviously an inferior game.

Runes of Magic

This is the newest World of Warcraft spoof out there and the game hasn’t even been released yet. Runes of Magic looks like the most “polished” World of Warcraft knock off and will probably be an excellent alternative to the actual game. The game will also be free to play mmorpg, so it may attract a lot of players who were interested in playing World of Warcraft, but didn’t want to pay for it. Check out the trailer for this one.
