I've never played a game named after a bone before, but was pleasantly surprised by what Tibia offered. The plot is not a whole not different from your standard role playing game. You're a knight, or a druid or a sorcerer or a paladin and must explore a mystical world solving quests and building up your skills and weapons.

There are plenty of zones to explore, although you'll only be able to access some of them if you're a Premium subscriber. The game is pretty easy to get into, even if you've never touched an MMORPG before. The inventory is quite straightforward to understand and the battle system is highly intuitive. Graphically, the game reminds me a lot of Ultima, which is no bad thing, because although it's colourful and detailed, Tibia doesn't put a massive strain on your system resources.

One of the few things that annoyed me about this game was the fact that you lose your skills, experience and even levels when you die, making it very frustrating having to build all this up again - only to lose it all over again.

As a result, Tibia is a highly enjoyable game if you have the patience to come back and build up your skills again whenever you die.

Tibia is one of the most successful massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) created in Europe. In an MMORPG people from all over the world meet on a virtual playground to explore areas, solve tricky riddles and undertake heroic exploits.

For 10 years now, players have been visiting the medieval world of Tibia. At present, more than 250,000 players from all over the world inhabit the Tibian continent enjoying the numerous game features.

Acting as knights, paladins, sorcerers or druids, players are faced with the challenge of developing the skills of their selected characters, exploring a large variety of areas and dangerous dungeons and interacting with other players on a social and diplomatic level. Besides the sophisticated chat tools it is especially the unique freedom players enjoy in Tibia, that create an enormously immersive gaming experience.
