I'll preface by saying I am an avid MMO fan. I love a challenge, and a good grind, and always like to see mechanics and gameplay features that branch beyond the genre.
I invested less than an hour into the game, but I'll give you my firsthand experience as objectively as possible.
The game looks flashy, but dated looking. Character and monster design look like a lot of effort went into them, but the lighting effects are a bit overdone. Map designs are very well done and have a heavy western RPG feel to them. The game lacks antialiasing, so once you zoom into the characters, you see blocky edges that really shows how dated this game's design really is. High level character design is over the top, in an almost costume jewelery looking fashion. There must be a ton of gear in this game, as it seems like you get upgrade after upgrade rather quickly from doing quests.
The Music feels epic in it's tone, but as I listened to a few of the map themes, I got the feeling of dischord and off-the rails digital symphonics that just didn't sound right after a while. The combat sounds were mid level, but I found myself wanting to shut the game off after 15 minutes as the over flashy combat lighting and redundant grunting attack sounds began to quickly assault the senses.
Combat feels clunky, poorly timed, and a bit underdone. Compared to other games the archer's gathering animations were laughable, and the jumping shot attack seemed rather silly. I'm sure there is more epic looking attack animations as the game goes on, but I'm sure the poorly timed attack motif is something that does not change.
Auto-pathing to each quest took my mind off the actual game world as I delved into the interface. tons of upgrades look to be available, and I mean tons. I like that kind of thing but I couldn't get past the combat to really give this game a try. Royal Quest is still doing it for me since August 2014, however I thought I'd give a few other Steam MMO's a try.
If you want some easymode auto path autoattack gaming, you can appreciate this game for what it is, but I personally can't.
