Summary: Why would anyone buy a game were the severs a closed. Codemaster no longer has the lience to this game. You can down load a newer version from CCR for free don't waste your money on this game.
Summary: I found it to be rather low in quality overall. Every element from graphics to gameplay just doesn't stand up to today's production standards. Tedious combat, sub-par PvP, terrible community. After playing to 35 in the UK/US beta then going to 25 on a friend's account we both decided that time would be better spent watching paint dry. Stay clear if you are looking for a game with challenge or depth. Players 15 years of age or higher need not apply.
Summary: Pros: The skill based growth system is customizable. While the skill caps are class/level based, you choose the skills you want to train. There are no healing/support classes, each class has a set of buffs (some usable on others) and potions for healing. Upgrade options - you can upgrade every weapon or piece of armor with a variety of abilibities. PvP - The pvp portion of the game is the center of attention. This why you will keep playing.
Summary: Believe it or not I love mindless killing ( grinding if you like ) i have a life so logging on and getting getting to the point of lvl'ing and or pvp'ing is just fin for me...but... In addition to the above comments. You cannot change your mouse sensitivity, you need to hack the game to change your keyboard setup... and worst of all this game does not have Inverted mouse and there is also no way to hack it to do so.
Summary: Decent Graphics bad gameplay. Can't say i'm surprised that a korean mmo is a grind-fest. If you want to grind play RO it is a much better game, Zero real quests, no story to be seen. The game feels the same as it did in beta, nothing was changed. The chat filter is horrible, the chat system all together is horrible.
Summary: I took part in the stress-test of this game. It moves well enough and has moderately decent graphics. However, there is really NOTHING to it. There's no sense of story, no ownership of the characters (which all look the same). The beginnings are muddled and you really have no reason to play on. That is, unless you really like just killing the same monster over and over by hitting the "attack" key and walking away. From what I could see, this game is a level treadmill.
Summary: I beta-ed this game and I won't be buying it. It was fun for the first few hours, but it quickly lost its appeal. Quests? Kill 20 of this, 20 of that. Combat wasn't that imaginative. Not much content or real story line once in the game. Beta was buggy (as to be expected), then shut down all of the sudden. That was weekend of 2/17. I'm not confident that they fixed that many things in that short of time. Game isn't ready for prime time.
