Today I find this new online game, free, medieval roleplaying game: Imperia Online. I have yet to find one satisfactory purely online game. My experiences with those WW2 FPS were not entirely appealing to me due to the lagging (Blitzkrieg) or clumsy installation (e.g. Red Orchestra). Ultima Online is too dump to spend time with to develop a meaningful charater. Everquest is pure fantasy and spending too much time just to wander around and recognize the way.

Another one look good on the web is Tanoth: http://s1.tanoth.co.uk/ It is one produced by the British and I have confidence in the British designing games of this sort. They have a kind of talent.

This one looks sexy: http://www.romanarena.com/thefirstgame/index.cgi But I haven't dug into this yet. So it might be superficial.

Tribal Wars http://www.tribalwars.net/ has some primitive graphics when compared to the above games. But the RPG element seems to be the best among the lot.

But I actually I like Medieval Warlords much more: http://www.agegames.com/mw/ It is because I love the period it covers and it is a more text based game. I like those online games with more historical sense instead of just bashing and building sort of time consumption game.

Holy War is another one I love so much to play but didn't find the time to. http://www.holy-war.net/EN/World4/bin/HK01/HK01.1.index_start.php?action=test

You should try them all out to see if some fit your taste. I am sure you would and get sucked in all nights like me.

I have completed the tutorial scenario in Flashpoint Campaign: Red Storm yesterday. It seems to be not ending at the specific time as the Quick Start Guide suggested but to drag on, until I ended the game manually with contested result in Soviet's favor (60%). The assault order is not good against enemy in the town. Heavy casualties were resulted. Seems you have to capture it with Deliberate Move instead. At one time, the HQ retreated back perhaps in view of the possible Soviet air-strikes. At another time, the psuedo-me Commander was reported to have been killed by the air-strikes. I have been enjoying the game all the time at Nordheim, in particular, the deep blue Rohn river.

yeah, I've heard STEAM can be a PITA! lol Personally, I'm not a big fan of STEAM. I was lucky and didn't have any issues with the program (touch wood!). The advantages to STEAM are not having to worry about backups and if you go online any game updates are done automatically, you do need to have internet access only for the initial install and after that you can play offline. However, call me 'old school,' but I like having an actual CD-ROM/DVD of a game just in case there are problems with STEAM or my computer.
Cheers!

STEAM. I couldn't figure it out.

I used to play and enjoy Red Orchestra (WW2 Eastern Front FPS). RO has improved immensely and now also offers decent tank combat, too. I found the player movement and close combat action a bit clunky, but otherwise it was ace and probably the most realistic WW2 FPS on the market (though I have not tried Day of Defeat which is supposed to be a good WW2 FPS game). Also, RO is a self-contained game for around $20 and you don't need to pay monthly charges to play online (one used to be able to play offline against computer AI, the gameplay is not very good, but it did serve as a good way to practice). What parts did you have trouble with on the RO install? Was it just RO or STEAM?
