Call of Thrones, also known as War of Thrones, is a 3D browser-based MMORPG that requires you download a mini-client before running the game on the web browser. The game was touted as the first Chinese browser MMO crafted in full 3D environment. By implementing the Direct3D Plug-in, Call of Thrones renders three-dimensional graphics and smooth performance.
It was firstly published under the title (天纪) by GameWave.net in China and thus far, there have been over 400 servers available to players. According to a person who wishes to remain anonymous, the game will appear as Three English versions for three different Regions under three different Titles: Call of Thrones for North America, War of Thrones for Malaysia and “Conquest of Thrones” for EU.
Having finished the registration within a few clicks, we are led to the character creation interface which offers a wide range of options, namely, you can choose the gender of your role as well as customize his or her appearance with 16 hairstyles and 8 face types. Besides, Call of Thrones also offers a variety of clothes for you to choose. Thanks to its unique preview function, you can get a clear view of your selected character. But to be honest, the looks of the characters leave much to be desired, and it is disappointing when we see our avatar staggering forward in the fantasy world.
Set in the turbulent era of Three Kingdoms in China, Call of Thrones tells the conflicts among the three mutually hostile factions, that is, Wei, Shu and Wu. And there are a total of 4 classes which are distinguished from each other by the weapons they wield.
The battles in Call of Thrones are turn-based, which can be either activated by hand or carried out automatically. Having successfully defeated your opponents, you will be rewarded with a certain amount of experience points which can be used to boost up your attributes and improve your skills. The blemish in this part is that you are forced to wait for a long time, due to the absence of skipping and slow-paced animations. Here I would say another disappointing fact, Call of Thrones cannot be played in full screen, which also tarnishes the game’s motivation.
Needless to say, the game market is highly competitive and the visuals of browser games are increasingly exquisite. Though Call of Thrones cherishes top-notch technologies, it doesn’t mean that this game will definitely achieve a universal success. Based on my 6 years of expertise in this industry, I don’t think the game will become a revolutionary trend-setter despite its originality in presenting the game in full 3D graphics. The most detrimental element for its localization consists in its comparatively rough graphics, translation wording, and strong oriental culture, all of which are hardly able to appeal to our western players.
