Games Like Runescape – Fantasy Browser MMORPGs
Drakensang Online – look no further, this is the best of the browser MMOs available today. Its top features include impressive 3D graphics and a Western medieval fantasy world very similar to Runescape. Players can complete quests, fight monsters, raid dungeons with their friends and compete with others in PvP arenas.
In Drakensang Online, players can choose to play as either a Dragonknight, Spellweaver or Ranger. Dragonknights can show off their prowess in close quarters combat; Spellweavers can launch impressive magic attacks and Rangers can deal damage from a distance. There is also a crafting system that former RS players will enjoy though it is not as extensive as the crafting skill in Runescape.
One of the best things about Drakensang is the flexible skill system in which players can customize their character’s skills by modifying its elemental attribute. For example, an energy ball can be turned into a frostball or a basic explosive attack can be changed into a meteor attack.
If you need more proof that Drakensang Online is worth playing then here it is: its barely 1 year old yet over this game has well over 10 million players.

Marvel: Avengers Alliance – like RS with superheroes. Team up your favorite Marvel heroes in this action packed game. Avengers Alliance takes place in the wake of a galaxy-wide disaster, known as “the Pulse,” exposing Manhattan to attack from Marvel’s most formidable villains. Players are recruited as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the secret espionage and peace-keeping organization of the Marvel Universe, to assemble and lead teams of superheroes with a mission to keep New York City safe from the clutches of villains.
Avengers Alliance provides a combat role playing game experience with dozens of familiar Marvel superheroes and villains, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Wolverine, Hawkeye, Black Widow and many more. Once a hero is added to the Avengers team, players can begin training them to unlock unique abilities and attacks, as well as using “ISO-8” to further customize each character’s stats. Players will also be able to face-off against each other, challenging their friends in super-powered, asynchronous PvP battles.
