    The idea of a bullet hell MMO isn't new. There was Realm of The Mad God, which is essentially the same idea. Bullet hell enemies, quick gameplay, permadeath EDIT : I see the comment made on the youtube regarding not knowing about Realm of the Mad God prior, so my comment is kind of moot.

    Realm of the Mad God is so much fun! I vividly remember the first time I was pulled into a world boss with everyone else and all the < lvl 10s (myself included) were all like 'waaargh we're gonna die!'. It also runs in a browser!

    I did play this one for a while, it's interesting at first but get's boring fast, not sure if have the same amount of content as RotMG, I mean as in gearing, also, the craft system at the time wasn't even worth tbh and the tank char was basically immortal with a single skill, altho, it was the weakest one on offensive, but then again, the skill I said was AoE and covered a good area allowing your party to just stand there and spank the boss.

    The only thing needed was a weapon with energy leech (or mana leech, I don't remember now what is the term used in this game) to keep the shield up.

    Kinda fun at first with some friends but gets a bit stale after that..if they added more mmo elements it could be pretty groovy

    A lesser version of Realm of the mad god.

    The premise was great, the end result is a mixed bag

    In the end RoTMG is just a better game

    Never heard of a bullet hell mmo? Have you played Path of Exile lately?

    POE gets pretty bullet-helly which is kinda nutty for an ARPG. Uber Elder is chaos.

    Put about 30 hours into this on steam. For a game where you unlock bonuses through getting cards, called Legacies, when you die - I didn't die until max level. Seemed too easy really. Only get gear from dungeon bosses or crafting. Crafting has terrible timers on it, 10 seconds for turning tier 1 mats into tier 2 mats, when you need to do that 100 times, gets a bit stale. Higher tier gear takes a lot longer, 7, 10, 15+ mins, etc. Of course, you can pay real $ to bypass the crafting timers. Although, that would seem to be risky considering you lose your gear on death, and only get to keep one item.
