Perfect World International: Review
At MMORPG.com, we periodically like to re-review games that have shown longevity and continued development despite the years. In our latest re-review, we turn our eyes to Perfect World International.

Perfect World International is a fantasy MMORPG that has been around for a while. First published in China in 2006, the game was later brought over to North America and has enjoyed several expansions and upgrades since. It was developed by the Chinese company Perfect World, who also publish the game through their North American publishing arm, Perfect World Entertainment. The game is set in a rich world which draws heavily on Chinese folklore and mythology and features unique races and classes which distinguish it from many of its competitors. Are these unique facets enough to overcome the age of the game? Does it have enough interesting gameplay to live up to the promise of its distinct setting, even seven years after its original launch? Read on and let's find out together.

Neverwinter: The Ranger We've Been Waiting For
It comes as no surprise to most that the first new class to be added to Cryptic's Neverwinter is the much asked-for Ranger. We had the opportunity to check out the Ranger and to talk with Andy Velasquez about Chapter 2: Shadowmantle.

Probably the most amazing thing about the ability of Rangers to switch between ranged and melee is that skills do not share cool down. When Andy was playing, he would start combat with a ranged attack and, as monsters neared, he would switch to melee. All skills were active on the switch. Utilizing the Marauder's Escape skill would send him back a short distance but could be utilized again if needed to gain distance, switch skills back to ranged. As monsters closed the distance again, he switched back to melee and BOOM! No cool downs. It's like an endless chain of active skills without the nail-biting wait for skills to reactivate.
