At first glance, the most apparent thing about Broken Ranks is the similarity in graphics to old-school Infinity Engine RPG classics such as Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale, and Fallout.
A unique feature of Broken Ranks is the combat system, which has been inspired by a different game and actually a different genre, namely Heroes of Might and Magic.
The different areas in Broken Ranks are beautifully made but most of them feel a bit cramped. I’m guessing this is due to the fact that it will be available cross-platform.
Broken Ranks feels like one of the most unique additions to the indie MMO scene in a long while. Whitemoon Games have succeeded in creating a new and exciting game that should appeal to MMO gamers, RPG gamers, and someday in the not too distant future, mobile gamers as well.
