    Best melee combat of any MMORPG

    RYL has the best real-time, close-range and most realistic combat of any MMORPG. NOTE: Malaysian server and private servers are now free (North American version, POTE, is closed) The other games like Guild Wars an... Read Full Review

    Hands down the WORST MMO I've played yet. Stay away...very far away from this game. It's that bad!

    I'm going to keep this review short and to the point: RYL sucks. And very badly. They advertised it a long time ago on Fileplanet, so I said to myself, "What the heck" and downloaded it. Well I was in for a shock. Th... Read Full Review

    Not a very bad game but not very good too!!!

    Ryl path of the emperor doesnt offer very much, except for the extensive pvp and gvg system, but thats almost the only thing thats good about this game. Sounds: Not very good at all, simple sound design, music is a b... Read Full Review

    Terrible, A waste of valuable money!!!!!!!!

    This has to be one of the worst games I've ever played. On the back of the box, it has all these screenshots that look like something from guild wars but in reality, the greaphics are comparable to something in runescape... Read Full Review

    Bad experience compared to RYL 1, Game is totally different and isnt worth the time putting in and is a big waist...

    To be honest, If you play this game... you wouldn't like the fact that the game is totally different from the beta version (Which is RYL 1). There is obviously 2 classes in which u choose from: Akkhans, and Humans. 2 in ... Read Full Review

    One Word, - Garbage.

    This is the only game I have ever felt the desire, no the duty, to write a review for. From the start this game feels like an unfinished shell of a game. The graphics are terrible, the gameplay not very smooth at all, an... Read Full Review

    not really good..

    This game is described that there are three factions; human, ak'kan and the 'peaceful' god's pirate. Despite of what the manual says , the gameplay has NOTHING to do with the story. Although there is long elaboration of ... Read Full Review

    Such a let-down

    PWG had a good idea. And then dropped the ball. It has its time consuming qualities to it, yet still has that "button-mashing-still-not-completly-balanced" gamplay effect. Left out a TON of things that could have been ... Read Full Review
