Our Exclusive Review -

Reed Hubbard has completed his review of The Saga of Ryzom - the newly released fantasy MMORPG from Nevrax.  Below is a preview from the article:

Reviewing a newly released persistent world poses an unusual problem. Given the time required to truly plumb the depths of most titles, and given the greater rewards offered to more highly developed characters, and given the fact that many MMORPGs don't stabilize and start to mature until a few months after release, it's almost unfair to offer a critique after a month of play. Additionally, the persistent online aspect of the games places them in a constant state of development, i.e. the criticisms offered today may be moot after the next patch. Regardless, it is the job of those tasked with reviewing a game to offer such a critique, even knowing all the aforementioned. As such, your humble reviewer has emerged from the world of Atys to report on Nevrax's new release, The Saga of Ryzom.

The Saga of Ryzom takes place on the planet Atys, a sort of interstellar root ball. Atys sprouts huge tree-like branches that find their provenance deep within the planet. Three generations ago, the Fyros journeyed into the depths, an area known as the Prime Roots, in search of a legendary dragon. Here they encountered spheres filled with fearsome insect-type creatures, the Kitin. Their attempt to kill these beasts unleashed a fury on the planet that nearly decimated all homin life on Atys. After a struggle of two years, the Kitin returned to the Prime Roots and the survivors came out of hiding to rebuild their world. It is at this time that the player finds himself.
