|GameSpy has gotten around to reviewing Artifact's/Atari's fantasy MMORPG 'Horizons'. Rating: 3/5.|
Horizons: Empire of Istaria is the latest entrant in the ever-more-crowded MMORPG market. Players play the role of inhabitants of Istaria, a land recently liberated from the menace of an undead horde. However, all is not well despite the newfound peace between the land's races. Areas of evil known as the "Blight" still exist, spawning monsters that threaten the livelihood of Istaria's people. Compared with other MMORPG's out there, Horizons stands above many of its peers with a deep crafting system, a player-driven economy, and much to see and do.
