In a distant sector known as Novus, three factions war for control. Engage in an awe-inspiring universe where enthralling fantasy blends with galactic sci-fi. Create your character, chose your faction and take arms with thousands of other players. The battle for supremacy has begun...

RF Online (Rising Force Online) is an epic mix of traditional fantasy MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) mixed with unique futuristic sci-fi action to bring an entirely new and original take on the existing MMORPG (Massive multiplayer online role-playing games) genre. Set in a deep space galaxy known as Novus, take your pick from three all-powerful warring factions leading your character into the final battle for total control over the entire Novus galaxy.

Choose from either the Bellato Union, taking control of individual robot battle units like never seen before within any MMOG, Holy Alliance Cora, the mystical and fantasy orientated race utilising the power of magic and finally the mighty Accretia Empire, a futuristic alien race intent on spreading destruction across the entire sector with their advanced weaponry systems.

If you are new to online fantasy adventures, I'd strongly advise that you find out a little more about them, or sign up and try one of the free programmes before you part with your money. These games are not for everyone and the fact you are expected to pay a monthly subscription charge in order to play online is another factor that should seriously be considered before you buy this game.

The early levels see you having to partake in quite a bit of grinding (repetitive and non-entertaining gameplay in order to gain access to other features within the game) to earn enough to buy potions and level up your character's stats etc. And it's this dull start that will have many reaching for the off switch.

While the graphics are pretty enough, personally, I find it offensive that you have to spend £30 to buy a game, and then an ongoing monthly subscription just to play the thing - especially when it's not that exciting. If you are a MMORPG nut, then this might be worth a look, otherwise stay well clear.
