Well-polished, and with solid mechanics, this is recommended for people who would, at a glance, like this sort of brawler. Ultimately, it's like Diablo 3. While a clone in many ways, it's quite a bit more fun and simple, with subtle extras that make it at least visually unique.

This would be great good, if it were free. It's just not for me, and I think my tastes have been changing lately.

Slash a things and miss a lot. Get hit a lot. Uninstall.

What a shit fighting system. With a fundamental flaw as glaring as this, there's no way in hell I'll play this.

Yet another MMO, but Japanese and built on a huge franchise and the smouldering remains of an abysmal failure.

This plays just like any old console game, even when I was using the keyboard. It's painful. I don't know.. it just doesn't do it for me.

  • aka Fainaru Fantajī Fōtīn: Shinsei Eoruzea

    • Apparently that's not a joke.

A space-western-esque MMORPG whose most interesting elements are movement in combat and a light/comedic tone. Oh, and player housing for the girls.

Meh. Just meh. I gave this a good shot, but the gameplay and interface are just shit.

I got to level 10. TEN and gave up. It was quite fun until I did a dungeon. I was told to keep playing until I did one, and .. well.. it failed miserably.

A great MMORPG with spectacular mechanics but no endgame.

I had a lot of fun with it way back when, but my most recent visit had me wandering around in circles for an inexcusable length of time. An utter failure. Still highly recommended.

  • I'm an orphan from years of World of Warcraft, but that game has been sliding downhill for too long so I'm done with it.
  • 2015-09-17 I've been back on World of Warcraft for some time now.

While a really great game, it somehow didn't do it for me.
