I’m not sure why Allods Online barely registers with western gamers. It’s pretty, it’s a well-made themepark MMO, and it has a couple of unique features, chief among them nifty aerial exploration gameplay.
Maybe it was the gaudy cash shop prices way back in 2010, before free-to-play and exploitative business models became the norm. Maybe it was the fact that deep down, it’s another MMO cut from World of Warcraft’s cloth. Whatever the reasons, I’m surprised that Allods isn’t more popular because frankly, it’s a decent game.
What about you, MOP readers? Which MMO is less popular than you expected?
