Parts of this review can be seen on Game! Magazine Philippines March 2007 issue. The article is still of course made by me but the article is more of a preview rather than a review.
Martial Arts always fascinates many people. With those deadly but beautiful moves, nobody can deny the magnificence of it. Magic is also an amazing phenomenon that still leaves spectators in awe. What if we mix these two on an Online game? You’ll get Scions of Fate or Yulgang Online (in Asia). But wait, there’s more. Not only will you get Magic and Martial Arts but also Comical Comedy in one game. This game appeals to the youth and adults alike. Developed in China by MGame, this multi awarded game has captured the online gamers of Taiwan, China, Thailand, and Vietnam with over 70 Million registered players. And now, as it opens it doors to the world with its English version, it is safe to assume that the initial numbers will rise exponentially.
In comparison to other games, it has striking similarity with Fly For Fun and R.O.S.E Online. The gameplay is almost the same with common MMORPG’s, point-and-click. The growth is a bit similar to Risk You Life but with a certain difference from the ability system. The Ability system will be explained later on.
A Comical MMORPG
This is a comic MMORPG, so expect the characters to be… well… comical. If you’re looking for some serious action then please by all means choose another game. This game is categorized as part MMORPG and part Casual. Most of the players here are most likely to be young ones because of the uncomplicated feature of the game. From the point of logging in, expect a wonderful and colorful fantasy world filled with giggling men and kiddie warriors.
