SEIZURE WARNING — Please Read Prior to Playing

A very small percentage of individuals may experience seizures when exposed to certain light patterns, flashing lights, or flashing images. Children and teenagers are more susceptible to seizure than adults, but even those with no history of seizure or epilepsy could experience them while playing or watching video games.

Symptoms of seizures include: lightheadedness, altered vision, jerking or shaking of the extremities, loss of awareness, confusion, twitching, or full convulsions. Convulsions can lead to other injuries by causing an individual to fall off of a chair and/or strike objects nearby.

If you or anyone in your family has an epileptic condition or history of seizures, consult your physician prior to playing this game — you could have an undiagnosed condition. If you experience any of the aforementioned symptoms of a seizure while playing STOP PLAYING AND CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY. Parents should ensure their children are not experiencing symptoms.

In order to reduce the risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures, you should play NCsoft games in a well-lit room while you are alert and awake. Avoid poorly-lit rooms and playing when fatigued.

    Lineage is an action fantasy game, it only has limited classes about 4 of them. You will love the sieges, war and the PK system. One of the most annoying thing on huge game like these are the BOTS, it ruins the game. Really it does.

    My character Lineage II is a dwarf, a craftsman for my friends. The map of this game is rather huge, and I always end up getting lost. Walking between the maps takes a lot of time so I find it a boring sometimes.

    I didn’t really appreciate Lineage. Although the graphics and the sounds are good, there were something in the gameplay that is not quite there. It feels undeveloped and the never ending grinding can take its toll.
