Aside from the open PvP, the heart of Lineage II is its siege warfare. Advanced players in a clan may occupy their own castle, and other players may lay siege to the castle and attempt to wrest it from the controlling party. The occupying clan receives numerous benefits, including income from taxation and better productivity of goods. Because of this, sieges are governed by rules to ensure fair play. Castle sieges must be scheduled in advance, and last only two hours.

The quality of artwork in Lineage II surpasses that of most online fantasy games by a large margin. The landscapes and structures are gorgeous, the characters are strikingly detailed, and the colors are strong and bold without being garish, which makes the whole game seem much like a well-drawn graphic novel. Years after its release, it still looks great.

Parents should be cautioned that characters, both male and female, may promote unrealistic body images. In particular, some of the female characters can be undressed down to what can only loosely be considered a bra, thong and thigh-highs: in short, erotic lingerie.
