My game of choice this time around comes in the form of an addictive,
humorous little MMORPG known as Dragon Nest.
A nice variety of fairly populated servers, making for a pretty good social experience (and quick way to find a guild or group if you are in need) without sacrificing bandwidth or having to put up with much lag.
Detailed and bright graphics engine with a nice variety of creatures and locations.
Fast, dramatic, dynamic combat with a good choice of skills and abilities based on your class of choice.
Pretty balanced XP/leveling mechanic, with newbies levelling at a pretty even rate and an increase in the difficulty curve as you go without overwhelming players.
Fantastic voice acting/dialogue/script. Seriously funny stuff and perfect for anyone who wants to get more involved in the RPG elements of an MMO.
Several interesting, creative little side-quests in the midst of an ongoing greater plot. Side quests never get too complex or too many at once (so you do not lose sight or focus from the main quest).
Pretty good fan-base of players with many active guild communities and helpful players.
Not much variety in your choice of characters. Many, MANY Sorceresses present (your choices are Warrior, Archer, Cleric, or Sorceress) with a fairly limited character customization.
Depending on your choice of server, there can be quite and influx of player-characters standing around with your standard "BUY GOLD HERE $$$$$" chat-spam above their heads, taking away from the role-play aspect quite a bit. Something the mods/admin should really clamp down on judging by the sheer amount of these annoying guys all over the place (particularly concentrated at the exits out of most towns, however, so you don't need to see them all over the place).
