    i just saw that too, the guy that told me about it plays it on his PC. i believe his exact words were "finally a halfway-decent MMORPG i can play on my mac"

    that doesn't speak well for the game.

    I've heard about it too, but haven't yet seen any screenies or anything. Apparently it's running on a mac at a booth at MWSF.

    Jake, go get a pic!

    I have read the reviews in various PC gaming mags and the feeling is luke warm on it, the Koreans are loony over it. Apparently they have over 1 million daily players just from there.

    I tried the free trial on my PC and was not overly impressed with it. I think that Shadowbane will be a much much better one, since you will have to pay to play either way I figure I will go with the better of the 2 IF I decide to play one on the Mac.

    I know this is an old thread, but I just received this months issue of PCGamer and I thought I would share some of the review content for Lineage.

    Overall Rating - 45% (tolerable)

    "To be blunt, Lineage is not a good looking game. The max resolution is 640x480, and while some of the art is well drawn, expect extreme pixelation, jerky scrolling, and dingy visuals. Playing Lineage is like viewing your monitor through a thin layer of gauze."

    "...unlike Diablo, Lineage has only eight player character models (four classes and 2 genders), and you can't change their appearance at all. Wherever you go, there'll be a whole lot of poorly animated you."

    "And really, Lineage isn't much fun. Free as it is ($15 monthly fee notwithstanding), this game still feels overpriced.

    Well, that is a but a few of the things that were said about the game. I can say that I will definately be waiting for Shadowbane if I am going to make the switch from EQ to another MMORPG.
