    Homepage: Black Gold Online - Steampunk Fantasy MMORPG coming soon from Snail Games

    Genre: Fantasy / Steampunk (depending which side you pick)

    Style: MMO

    Combat Style: Typical MMO

    Learning Curve: Simple enough, but there are a lot of things going on - has good tooltips though so I haven't refered to an external source for help yet.

    Crafting: Simple enough so far, seems typical of MMOs.

    PVP: Open World, Battlground, and Arena. Only once have I been PK'd in open world, seems rare so far.

    Role-Playing: Haven't noticed any.

    Leveling style: Level based

    Server Pop: Varied? I play in NZ timezone, and is still fairly populated. Enough to pull groups together for dungeons etc.

    Stability: Seems fine so far, lag acceptable for me in NZ to USA (I assume) servers.

    Immersion: 7/10
    Graphic Quality: 7/10
    Sound Quality: 6/10
    Content Quality: 8/10

    At the rate you are going, you'll need to stack your userbars side by side :p

    I haven't played this for a bit due to the guild I joined getting swallowed up and was a bit meh... but am looking to casually jump in again, if anyone is keen too. :)

    hrrrm. A bit laggy, seems the population has moved on also.... Could be a great game, but I rememeber lag being why I stopped - it wasn't always an issue, they must have changed something (server change?) and introduced it at some point in the beta.

    I see they constantly announce ingame to not promote other games or you'll get your account banned... that tells me they are screwed already. Also, global chat is disabled except for a limited use mechanism, which means chat is dead, or was for the few hours I was on. Which made the game feel empty - even no gold spam heh.

    Sigh. Such an awesome concept, could have been awesome.

    It looks kind of like a Diablo SteamPunk style from the screen shots that you posted, I'll see if it's any good here in the US. It looks really cool, something that might like, so I'll definitely have to look into it.
