Summary: As a single-player experience, Rusty Hearts is an amazing game. As an MMO, it’s alright. Yet, it’s an addictive game that can be played in short bursts, an interesting, though clichéd, story, and excellent music.
Excerpt: I love a good brawler. Beating the crap out of baddies while racking up a huge combo counter is just plain fun. Now, letÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s throw in online co-op. That sounds pretty cool. How about an MMO hub world...
Pros: + Fast fun game play, + Tons of RPG customization, + Lots of multiplayer options, + Free-to-pay model, + Amazing presentation.
Cons: Control and camera issues in the hub, Can become laggy at times, The music is too loud at times
Excerpt: Perfect World's new free-to-play online RPG isn't your typical MMORPG at all - Rusty Hearts takes the old formula and gives it a twist, pitting you against vampires, demons, and creatures of the night in a hack-n-slash side scroller format. Players travel to the gothic town of Bramunez, where a battle is raging between humanity and the aforementioned dark forces, and it is here that they will grind to their (rusty) hearts' content.
Excerpt: I play a lot of MMORPGs. I wouldn’t say that I’m picky when it comes to them; I’ll try anything. It takes a really good game to keep me around though. So when Rusty Hearts was next on my preview list, I was skeptical. After a quick download, I fired up the game. Rusty Hearts lets you play as one of four characters (though only three were playable).
Excerpt: Qui a dit qu'il fallait nécessairement se saigner aux quatre veines et faire un trou monstrueux dans son budget pour jouer ? L'explosion des free-to-play fait le bonheur des radins et des bourses modestes. Vous ne vous êtes jamais lancé dans cette aventure parce que les MMORPG asiatiques vous donnent des boutons ? Et pourtant, ce modèle économique ne se limite plus à ce genre bien particulier, des titres lorgnant clairement du côté des jeux d'action l'ont même adopté.
