This is a really great idea. There's getting to be a heap of these free to play MMOs out there now, and finding one that suits personal tastes can be like searching for a needle in a haystack.

I think it would help this topic if we had some kind of template to use for reviewing.

Something along the lines of...

Name: The Game
Genre: Sci-fi/Modern/Historical/Fantasy
Style: MMO RPG/FPS/RTS/TBS
Combat Style: Button mashing/Auto-attack/Auto-attack with abilities/etc
Learning Curve: Complex/balanced/simple
Crafting: Complex/balanced/simple/non
PVP: Forced/encouraged/voluntary/non
Role-Playing: Forced/encouraged/voluntary
Leveling style: Level based (as in WOW), Skill based (as in Ultima Online), Mixed class based (for want of a better term, I'm thinking as in early days SWG)
Server Pop: Very heavy (problems joining), heavy, moderate, light, very light (hard to find other players)

Immersion: 5/10
Graphic Quality: 5/10
Sound Quality: 5/10
Content Quality: 5/10
Overall Rating: 5/10

Brief Description: This is a game...
Pros:
Cons:

Other Comments: Blah blah...

Payment options: Completely free/pay for enhancements.
Download Size: No dl.

That's off the top of my head, further input would be appreciated.

Now I'll go hunt down a free MMO so I can add a review of my own!
