Whether you're a seasoned veteran or a newbie to the world of massive multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPG), 1100AD offers a new, medieval twist to challenge your strategy — all within the browser, no download required! This is one of the best features of 1100AD; you won't need to worry about system requirements.
Though 1100AD may not provide the stunning 3-d realism of platforms like the Playstation 3 or XBOX, it finds a good substitute with illustrated artwork for each unit and mock-3-d landscapes that won't cause your whole browser to lag. Its not World of Warcraft, but you won't have to pry open your computer to slide in a video card upgrade that can handle the 3-d, and 1100AD isn't Commander Keen or loaded through DOS, either; by contrast, 1100AD has some of the best graphics in its niche in the mmorpg community. Whether you've been locked in combat online for years or you've never commanded an army in a computer game before, 1100AD offers “subscriptions” that can help newbies to get started or turn you into a “Baron” with 10 heroes to do your bidding.
