I've recently decided to start sampling some of the large variety of MMO's/MMORPG games available for free online. Mostly due to the usual habit of my well running dry when it comes to maintaining interest in World of Warcraftor Lineage 2. So in an effort to educate (and save you all some cash in the process), I've decided to try playing some of the other Massive Multi-player games you can download for free. My first game-of-choice rated highly with many people: Scarlet Legacy.
Beautiful, bright, eye-catching graphics
Good frame-rate with minimal lagging/skipping (even amidst the more crowded areas)
Fast respawn rate for mobs/monsters, reducing situations where you find yourself stuck trying to compete for mobs to finish your quests or earn XP.
Interesting storyline, well presented during story progression without taking away from the game-play too much
Quick, simple levelling
Extremely easy navigation (points of interest clearly marked on your map)
Simple quest navigation (clicking on the name of the mob/quest giver will cause your character to run toward them--great if you turn yourself around)
Obviously a Chinese port. The language is in Chinese, not in itself an issue except that the game suffers from a painful amount of "Engrish" during any point that requires you to read (which is quite a bit). It breaks the flow of the story when there are several grammar mistakes in a single sentence.
Repetitive, grinding game-play as you progress (kill three wolves, now kill three more, now kill three bandits, now kill some spiders!)
While mobs are plentiful and re-spawn quickly, the sheer amount and physical closeness to each other makes the combat areas look very copy-and-pasted.
