THE GOOD: Low system requirements, Siege/War/PK system, magic system, simplicity, free updates, free client download
THE BAD: bot users, some people general assholes, server crashes (rare, but it happens)
SUMMARY: I've played Lineage for 3 years now, dont trust the reveiw of those NOOBS who only tried it out on the 5 day trial. The same gender of each class does look the same, but that makes it easy to determine one's class. It also prevents people from knowing what you possess, which is relativly good. The Siege system allows you to take over castles and then you control the taxes over the towns that is under the castles control. If you raise your taxes too high, people might break into your castle and kill your pledge. There are currently 3 servers (Lands of Aden being the best) and 5 character classes, Knight, Prince, Wizard, Elf, Dark Elf. On the Depardiue and Ken Rahuel Server, there is whats called Soft AC, basically it means that every class other than Knight take more physica...
THE BAD: Incredibly, incredibly boring battle system, magic system, and monotoneous everything else.
SUMMARY: Graphics: Well, I can quite honestly say that I've seen the super nintendo put out graphics light years better. The game moves soooooooooooooo slow, each time you take a step the character you play will have 1 frame to symbolize it's movement. I've never played a game that moves quite as sluggishly as this game does even at a normal speed the game was intended to run at. Everyone class looks EXACTLY THE SAME AS ANOTHER WITH THE SAME CLASS. If you wear the type of weapon, the characters ARE identical.
Control: Point and click. It's a tribute/ripoff of Diablo. Like many other Diablo clones, this one has one of the worst battle system possible. You buy spells and can never upgrade them unless you level up. If pointing and clicking bores you, you can hold the ctrl button and click on the monster for an even more boring, automated battle.
THE GOOD: The good thing about this game is how you can siege castles and take over them. As a prince you get a chance to lvl up get money and ask people to join your pledge. As your pledge develops your army gets bigger and stronger making you the KING. The game is good =)
THE BAD: The bad thing is there are only 4 classes it would be better if there were at least 6 or so.
SUMMARY: Overall I think that this game is great because its exciting once your a higher lvl. Items are priced by the players not the game and you can select taxes in your city if your the KING. I like this game alot I'm lvl 46 and have -43 ac which is very good. I have played Lineage at least 3 months and am not bored of it because of the castles and sieges =) right now my pledge owns Orc Fortress 7/8/2001 =)!!!!!!!!
THE GOOD: Free client download; low system requirements; nice graphics; addicting game play; multiple character types to choose from; ongoing story line; bloodpledges can take control of a castle and must fight to keep control.
THE BAD: Limited audio; must advance many levels before you can take on larger creatures; not many trade skills; limited documentation; not available for sale in retail stores.
SUMMARY: Lineage is either going to be a game that you love, or it's just not for you. Lineage comes with a 5 day free trial period. This time is plenty to see if it fits what you're looking for in a game. I rather enjoy the fact that the character's avatar looks similar to other characters in the same class as yours. It lets you instantly tell if someone is an Elf, Fighter, Wizard, or Prince. Lineage is derived from a popular Korean comic book, and the storyline progresses every few months with new "Chapters". These Chapters contain new game content, bug fixes, and storyline advancem...
THE BAD: CHARACTER AMINATIONS ARE HORRIBLE, YOU CAN'T RUN, ALL SWORDS LOOK THE SAME, YOU LOOK THE SAME WHETHER YOU HAVE A PLATE MAIL OR LEATHER JACKET. GAY MUSIC, AND ITS MAKE BY SOME GHETTO KOREAN COMPANY THAT HAS NEVER HEARD OF EVERQUEST OR ULTIMA ONLINE AND ITS 15 BUCKS BULLSHIT
THE BAD: The game makes you loose lots of exp when you die,the items are too expensive, the monsters give too little money, the monsters take too many hits to die, there is no item to regenerate magic, there is no item discription, and I can do on and on.
SUMMARY: This game is worthless the framerate sucks and this game is full of glitches.
