GameOgre: R2 Online

Posted by | October 5, 2011

r2-online-squareThere comes a time in the life of every gamer that we must leave our comfortable abode of Blizzard MMORPG-land and try out other titles. However sad, some of those titles are like R2 Online, which is fundamentally a hack-and-slash mediaeval Asian knights and wizards game with little else going for it.

For today’s segment, I direct the audience to GameOgre and Kyt Dotson’s most recent First Impressions of R2 Online article.

It’s time for another Asian-styled knights-and-demons style MMO and R2 Online fits the bill nicely. R2 Online is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG published Webzen, Inc. that recently went into beta. It features a strong 3D engine with a lot of special effects, epic booming music, and an extremely tight grip on the concept of transforming players into other things. The developers and publisher also seem to have spent a lot more time pitting the different guilds against one another moreso than driving the underlying storyline (although the narrative is certainly there.)

During my play through, I encountered a lot of different people—although most of them did kill me after I left the city—but overall the community will be driving this game with PvP and events. In fact, one thing that this game seems to push hard is events. The fact that I stumbled across something called a Monster Racetrack really caught my attention (although I didn’t get to see a race.) The world is vast, contains a lot of interesting things, and would take a while to explore.

Not sure I’ll keep playing this game afterwards—point-in-fact those are the afterwords as well—but it does deliver precisely what’s written on the tin.
