I think so,, in my opinion.. As we can see in the case of Atlantica Online which also has a very good hype rating while at the same time delivers what I expected from it.. For one,, is its new turn-based battle system which is unlike your typical MMO that is hack-and-slash which I personally find dull and repetitive.. Another is the in-game option for guild masters to govern towns and eventually create a country..

I think the reason why Atlantica lives up to its hype rating is because of numerous innovations that it introduces to MMO genre,, as not to become your another typical MMO..
