As most of you know, we've moved all but the most important MMORPG news over to MMORPGDot. However, given the profile of Horizons, I thought I'd use a little license and post the first review here. Gamer's Hell has taken line honours with the first official review to hit the web. The score is 7.8/10 with graphics taking a hit at 6/10. Here's a snippet:
Horizons raises the ability to create own items in-game to a new level, while you could buy resources and craft items in Dark Age of Camelot and other games it has been merely an alternative to just buying items from merchants or looting them. In Horizons however you can not loot items from monsters, nor can you buy them from merchants. How the heck is that going to work you ask? The whole economy is player driven! There are few things you can buy from NPCs like starting items, few resources and so on. You most certainly couldn’t equip yourself completely just from NPCs; except one NPC: The Consigner. Players can offer their goods for sale to other players at consigners that are present in every city; the consigner takes 10% of the price the player asks for. This system worked very well in the Beta and continues to work more than well after release.
Presumably most of this is based on beta time, so take this into account.
