In a post-apocalyptic wasteland which was once Siberia, live a community of survivors struggling to rebuild the collapsed economy. Take your place in this ruined world and hone your survival skills to become a big-shot. This game is like Fallen Earth in many ways but stands out due to its environment and persistent real life gameplay.

Pros: Hundreds of learn-able skills, Advanced crafting system, Well designed world.

Cons: Hard to learn, Grinding.

Storyline: Nobody really knows the full story of why life as we knew it ended. People talk of fried nanobots in the brain, things in the sky, robots and aliens. But the reasons don't matter, only survival is important now. Day to day its just a long process of hunting, scavenging and making the most out of what we can find. Progress is slow, the technology we once had doesn't all work so we have had to start from scratch almost. Its a hard life, some choose to take from others what they gather and some decent folk band together to help each other. What will you do? Join our community or live outside it?

Features: AfterWorld is a classless game that instead uses an advanced skill system to upgrade your hunting, scavenging and crafting techniques. The game features ranged and melee weapons. To use them requires manual aiming. Many different types of mobs are available for hunting from wolves to humans to mecha. A weapon can be crafted or bought from another player. Likewise, Ammo can be bought as well. All Ammo types can be used on all Rifles. Different types of Ammo deal different types of damage. This is needed because some creatures are resistant against some damage types.

You can hunt in teams to bring down tougher game and enemies. Loot splits according to damage dealt. Loot consists of parts to use in crafting. The maps are split into different zones you can travel to via tunnels, subways and holes. The maps consist of both open areas and towns with varied environments. Hundreds of resources can be mined on AfterWorld. Different types of rock, ore and crystals are available for digging up. Varied types of wood can also be found. Crating is a massive part of AfterWorld. Basic tools can be found easily and with these you can make better tools to craft better things. Armor, weapons and clothing can all be crafted using components either looted or mined.

You can tame creatures in AfterWorld by luring them with meat then capturing them. You can then train your pet in combat to help you. You can focus yourself in a profession to get steady income and be a real part of your community. There are many professions to choose from, some of which are; Medic, Lumberman, Tamer, Robot hacker, Mechanic and Woodworker.

All in all, AfterWorld is a nice game for those who don't want to play a typical MMO. The classless, resource based system really works to make this game feel like it really is a post-apocalyptic world.

Here, for your listening pleasure (and in no particular order, I assure you) is a list of some of the best songs ever heard in an MMO.
