It's almost unfair to call Federation II a MUD. Not only is it a
truly original game, unlike minor alterations to stock code like many
textbased online games, and not only does it have an infinitely
functional specialized front end, but the gameplay is unlike anything
I've ever seen.
Rather than the standard hacking and slashing, Fed II offers a more
intellectual style of gameplay based on economics. This may sound dull
to some people but it's really not. Trading commodities on an
exchange that's responding to your actions as well as the actions of
the rest of the players, managing a company with factories on planets
all over the solar system, it's all exciting and fun. Killing an orc
has nothing on making 100% profit on a good trade.
So if you remember Fed 1 from the AOL days or not, give it a shot. I
can almost guarantee it's not like any MUD you've ever tried, and
it's also free.
