Entertaining at first, but it becomes the opposite after not too long...

Tons of skills to play with, but you'll notice how similar they are after a while. You can only bring eight with you at one time though, so you might have to make some strategic choices. The quests get very similar after a while, they're only fun on the first island, after that, they're means of leveling. Noobs are, like in many other MMORPG's, quite a nuisance in this game. The henchmen system is quite useful when you're adventuring on your own, but when it comes to Missions, they're useless. The PvP system is quite entertaining, in fact, that's the most fun aspect of the game, but still, you feel like you fight for nothing. There aren't really any good rewards.
The graphics are actually very good. The spells look especially neat. As stated in the tilt section, there isn't really much variation though.
The main theme is the only theme that really stands out in the crowd. You can hardly tell the other themes apart. Come on Jeremy Soule, we know you can do better(Oblivion). The sound effects are just ok, I guess, nothing special.
You reach your max level 1/3 into the main quest, so you basically have no "real" goals further in the game. The weapon/armor system is COMPLETELY broken. You can buy weapons and armor with best attack/armor stats just after you reach Kaineng(the main isle). The fact that there really are no goals in this game, besides getting useless titles, is quite disappointing. The henchmen system is quite useful when you're adventuring on your own, but when it comes to Missions, they're useless. The fact that the game is free of charge is pretty neat, but there hasn't been ONE real update as of yet(game AND updates my ass).
The cinematics are a way of torturing yourself. The voices are the worst I've ever heard in my life(especially Master Togo's). And their lips doesn't move. That shouldn't be possible in 2006! You cannot go wherever you want, so there's a slight chance you might get stuck in a wall/staircase. And it seems like a 10-year old wrote the history! It's not involving at all! Some guys get a disease, the disease spreads, and you, the hero, must STOP THIS DISEASE! That doesn't sound really fun, now does it? And the areas, you won't believe how similar they are!
