Wizard 101 is a massive multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) is a turn based multiplayer game. The combat is similar to that of some of the popular card games where reaction times aren’t as important as strategy is.
Available on the PC as well as the OS X, you can play your character and gain additional levels and skills with your friends online. It is based in the word of magic and dragons in a fun comic-type graphics system. It will run on almost any computer regardless of specs.
As mentioned before, Wizard101 uses a turn based combat style. This means that you will have a chance to do something to an opponent and then your opponent will have a chance to respond. This slowing-down of the combat is highly favored by gamers who aren’t looking for just an adrenalin rush, but rather a more balanced and intricate combat system.
Unlike other RPG games, Wizard101 only has magic based characters. The world that is created resembles the world that Harry Potter exists in. You will level up and gain additional stats and skills as you complete the various quests along the way. It is very easy to start playing the game. As you need to go to an area, then only will the game download the data needed to play in that area. This means that you can start playing almost immediately, only downloading more when you have to.
The MMORPG market is a large expanding market these days. Wizard101 has made an impression on the market, albeit not as big a splash as World of Warcraft has made. The turn based type of action is not common in new age MMORPGs which makes it fairly unique in that aspect. They have adopted a Free-to-Play model like many new MMORPGs.
Additional features such as arena and the late-game content can either be accessed slowly or all at once if you decide to subscribe. The game isn’t as fast paced as many other games due to its turn based action but it is nonetheless very entertaining. It is easy to become immersed in the world that has been created in Wizrad101.
Overall, Wizard 101 is a great game for any fan of other MMORPGs as well as someone looking to just do some fun questing with friends. The game is easy to understand which makes it possible for people of all ages to enjoy playing it.
The payment model is fair and well worth the money you would need to spend to enjoy the full features of the game. The game will leave hard-core MMORPG fans wanting. It is more a casual game that you can play every now and then.
