Reviews of currently popular F2P Vampire MMORPGs

Bitefight is a popular browser based game by Gameforge, the same publisher behind Ogame, Ikariam, and Gladiatus. The game is most similar to Gladiatus but has a horror theme where players chose to play as either a vampire or werewolf. PvP plays a large role in Bitefight and players can be attacked by others at anytime. Like most browser games, Bitefight is slow paced and thin on gameplay options but is ideal for those without access to decent computer hardware.

The majority of games currently available on Facebook are simple. In fact, some of them lack any depth of any kind and aren’t fun to play for more than few minutes — if that. Now a group of developers who worked on games like EverQuest, Planetside, and Free Realms is planning to deliver what may seem impossible – a true MMORPG on Facebook that will appear to both the hardcore and casual audience, and that game is called City of Eternals.

Every self-respecting geek has dreamed of being a vampire at least once in their lives. Immortality, incredible power, and drop-dead gorgeous good looks are all temptations that might draw a person to live the life of the undead. In Joymax's horror-based MMO Darkeden, you're given the opportunity to play as a vampire or a vampire slayer, and the PvP possibilities are endless. The game has been on Cody "Micajah" Bye's radar for a long, long time, and he finally took the game for a spin. How did it fare? Read his Darkeden review to find out more!

Empire of Night is deeply social game that capitalizes on the bonds that form in the horror-genre. In EoN, players take on the role of modern-day vampires, sexy superheros with dark origins. They fight to control the blood pools and ultimately rise to the top of their clans.

Hey readers, today’s post is about a new mmorpg (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game) I came across recently called Immortal Night. The game already has thousands of players and better yet, it’s free. With the economy sucking as badly as it does having a free video game to play rock all sorts of awesome (especially if you’re a broke nerdling like me).  And video games about werewolves versus vampires kick even more ass. What hardcore werewolf fan doesn’t want to lay on some serious pain to those vamps?

This is a text based RPG focussed on vampires. You start off in the imaginatively named Dead City and have to battle your way through the anarchic world that awaits you. It is free but it is also very simplistic. You play in your browser and each hour you get given a certain number of turns which you can use to train up, explore or battle. I’ve played a lot of these text based browser RPGs and they are all much the same. This one is not round based and there are no periodic resets. The lack of art or interesting storylines means that it will not likely hold your attention for long. You can check out the game at the Reign of Blood website.

Speaking as someone who's played Immortal Night for almost a year and a half now, I can say that the review in the original post is an extremely flattering one. The game isn't totally free to play - the administrators offer "Donator Packs" to players - you pay a little money, you get some neat little trinkets.
Succeeding in the game takes an incredible amount of effort. It's advertised as a "warring game", which means PvP is the largest aspect of the game. However, if you slip in the running, or start the game now, you'll basically never catch up to the people who do nothing but train all day. (And there are a lot of those.)
However, if you like games that don't take a lot of effort to play (the entire game is point-and-click), or just being social (there are lots of Houses [guilds] and chatting), it's a pretty good game. I and several other players have admitted that we log on to chat with others; the game is just what we do to fill the time when the chatroom is slow.
Remember: It's not the size of your fangs that matters; it's what you stick them in.

For those willing to forgo graphics, I'm sure there are plenty of MUD's out there with vampire themes.

If you don't know what those are, they are the precursors to the MMO - you log in via telnet (or a specialized telnet client, like ZMud) and play. Everquest, Ultima Online and games of that time were called 'graphical MUD's' before the term MMO became popular. Some of these have been continuously running for more than twenty years now, so they are a lot larger and have a lot more stories, lore, areas to find and stuff to do than you might expect (ie: playable 'area' larger than some MMO's)

http://www.mudconnect.com  is the place to start looking for them. If you haven't ever tried one, do yourself a favor and do. They are the ultimate gameplay over eyecandy experience: if the gameplay isn't good, they don't hang around very long.

MUME (Multi Users in Middle Earth0 is one of the 'granddaddies' and still going pretty strong. It's not vampires, but if you want to see just how large and in depth a MUD can be, this is one to take a look at. A quick search for 'vampire' in the theme keywords list turned up eight MUD's. Not bad, and there's probably a few more hidden in there as well.

WotMUD (based on Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time) is the one that really got me hooked into the genre, and where I first met my wife actually (married eight years now). She started mirrorsmud.net - similar theme different gameplay, which I helped build with her. She doesn't do any of the 'hands on' management any more, but the MUD is still running. If they haven't changed it, there's a shrine to 'Crysa' in the tutorial zone: a wonderful woman who helped build the game and tragically died in a truck wreck. If you want a game with a strong community where players really get to know one another, this may be your thing.
