Dreamlords

Dreamlords is an MMORTS hosted by Paradox. This is an older game which has been revived recently. It mixes RTS elements with some browser strategy town building. You can work on your town either in the RTS engine or from a browser, which is nice because you don't have to let your civilization rot while at work or at school.
In Dreamlords, you are a Dreamlord who helps one of three warring races. You start on a patria, a floating island. You start on a small corner and can then spread out further and further as you clear portions of your patria. The combat is RTS based, you get to fight as your Dreamlord and choose your support team from the race you have chosen.
The RTS engine is quite simple. working like most other RTS games. Based on how many stages you clear in the RTS, you gain more and more followers which allows you to increase the workers in your town. This lets you research faster, gain more soldiers in your army, build more equipment and many other things. The city manager is well made and works very well with the RTS engine.
This game is very different than any other MMORPG  you've ever played. The game company went in a completely unique direction. This is what the industry needs, something fresh and new. We're tired of the same old crap being rehashed and poured down our throats. Although this game is excellent, it is still missing a few elements to draw in other possible players. Levelling your Dreamlord is very slow and doesn't really have a sense of achievement involved. The future of MMORPGs is new and original content, not the same old thing presented in a different way.

Graphics - 6/10
Gameplay - 8/10

Overall - 7/10

  27. I love the idea that they have introduced browser integration. Browser integration is a very convenient feature and many other developers should try to implement their game code within a browser application.
