    After roughly seven years the game is still kicking

    I played AO back when it first launched in 2001, to be honest I didn't realise back then how much this game would shape the future of MMOs, or at least some of them. Back when it was launched it sadly didn't get all the ... Read Full Review

    Is fun at times, but then again can be a pain

    Anarchy Online is a online game set in the sci-fi setting of rubi-ka, where you get immersed in this world, fight aliens, etc. Though I agree it is fun at times, especially with friends and that it is a bit unique in ... Read Full Review

    i thought it was good.

    it was good. Not the best for an mmo. I thought that it could have used a bit more spicing up. If you want to play a good free mmo. Go with this or guild wars. I personally like the futuristic fact of the game. So my rev... Read Full Review

    A good game, despite it's flaws

    This game, which came out in 2005, was considered great despite its bugs. Now it really isn't graphiclly better, but it is still a lot of fun. It's become free now, only making you pay a monthly fee if you buy a upgrade.... Read Full Review

    Anarchy online is a diverse, deep, and addictive game that combines both great gameplay and a great social feel...

    Anarchy online's launch technicalities deadened the popularity of the game, but those who stuck with it and played through the server crashes were thankful they did. The game is great and offers a vast world to explore a... Read Full Review

    There is no-other like it. A game that was developed with love and wont take you for a fool.

    First of all, many of the official reviews around seem to be rather dated. I do honestly think that those most major bugs have been and gone. Anarchy online's setting is Scifi world. Which was little bit off putting t... Read Full Review
