The Game in a Nutshell (Short Version)

Hello Again, I finished my last thread a few days ago ("The Game in a Nutshell"). I also recently wrote a review of World of Warcraft which got criticized for being "too long" or "A wall of white text". I realized that this 9dragons post had the same problem. I am a detailed writer but on sites like this it gets the best of me. So, here goes the CliffNotes version...

9dragons is a martial arts korean style mmorpg. The first 35 levels are enjoyed by all. Plenty of quests, nice graphics mixed in with kick-butt martial arts animations makes it better than even most P2P games. It about level 35, 70% of people have to buy new computers (because most of them are on the ground outside the window). It is a grind wall, everyone knows it. However, I don't think they leave you with a hammer and chiesel in front of a mountain. Different manuals, tomes, and scrolls to increase your skill up and exp. gain rate help infinately (especially when combined with the numerous 2x, 3x, etc. exp events). One thing I personally like about the game is even at low levels, rare item drops are still very high (nothing is better at lvl 3 than killing that spider and seeing a rare spear floating in it's place). If you have read any of the other posts, you will here the term "No new content" about a million times. There is plenty of new content but unfortunately it is lvl 75+ so most people don't get to experience it. Overall it's 5/5 for 1-35, 4/5 for 35-75, 4.5/5 for 75+

I did it! That's gotta be under 200 words!!!

    Once you reach level 50 or so the grind is so intense that you just might ask yourself if you're actually gaining exp anymore. The game is fun for a little, but its probably one of the worst grinds ever considering you're looking about maybe max level is about 200 or so. I forget since its been almost 2 years since I last played the game.

    Still using that awful point and clunk interface?  That was a show stopper for me.  No RP doesn't help either.  Long version of the review was pretty good, gave a solid view of the game.  Not likely to get me to play, but will help with a more informed choice.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.
