I have mixed feelings for this game.

Keep in mind that I have played and given this game a chance twice, with several years gap between.
I first played when it was newly-released, for around 2 days, then quit because of the disappointment of the game being completely different from RO1 and boring.
I played it a second time recently in Spring of 2016... and this time I did not care if it was nothing like RO1. Sadly it had me leaving in just 1 full day from how unplayable it was.

On the up-side, I do recommend TRYING it at least once, because it's free (to start), decent character creation options, low-lag, the armor is beautifully-designed, and overall the game has beautiful art, especially if you are into the anime or hand-painted aesthetic and wanted to see more stylish, late-teenage, anime-style characters in games.
It has a few features which are fairly unique(the card system, job costume, etc), but aside from that it's a very standard point-click-hotkeyspam combat MMORPG. There will be many familiar monsters from the first Ragnarok Online game, which can be nostalgic, and they look beautifully-made with nice animations.
I liked the beautiful male NPC "Eremes Guile" as well, who is also from RO1. Nostalgia again (and eye candy which is fairly rare in gaming to be made for female taste).

However, even with all of these things that I liked, the cons simply outweighed the pros for me.
Also, if you get addicted to all MMORPGs easily, and are poor, I recommend that you don't even try. You will save more money by buying and playing a non-DLC console game than this.

The biggest con of all, would have to be the inventory. All throughout the game, before I could even reach the first town (Prontera), I was struggling like crazy to manage my inventory. No matter how much I tossed out useless items or stored stuff in the storage, the inventory kept getting jammed with things I wanted to keep like good armor I could use soon and good/rare cards.

At this point, you really can tell that the game is using a fairly aggressive psychological manipulation to get you into buying inventory bags/slots/whatever. It's not "BUY THIS OR WE BAN YOU" type of coercion, it's "BUY THIS OR TOSS YOUR FAVORITE ITEM", and to me, this is really still a similar concept to blackmail, and even for an F2P game it felt like an incredibly heavy pressure. I probably have played every F2P anime-style MMORPG out there, and this may be one of the worst offenders.
At this point, I simply just quit the game even though I had been enjoying the actual game fine a few minutes before.

This is really a game-breaker for me, and even if the game is an F2P model, I expect F2P games to be free-playable without so much stress and pressured near-coercion. Otherwise I would stayed and have bought tons of costumes since I am a fashion addict in MMORPGs. Then again, if the costumes were gachapon-only (I cannot remember if RO2 was), I would also not buy them.

So, if you want to play a game without spending money, and not tossing every precious in-game item you have earned, this is not for you in the long-term.
Honestly, the scrapped old version of RO2 (Gate of the World) was way funner even when it was still in-development with many bugs. Mainly because it had no cash shop to restrict your gameplay, and it was actually unique in many ways (weapon leveling, movement physics, etc), but sadly it doesn't exist anymore, because why make a fun unique game, when you can make a cash-grab instead?

I really tried to love this game, I want to love this game, I really do... but I just can't stay playing longer than a day.

There is no other game that emphasises the MMORPG like Ragnarok series. Have classes to choose and chain of classes which enables you to increase your arsenal of skills. Quests are straightfoward. Dungeons available. Auction is always there if your storage is full. Huge map. Great storyline in quests. Thats pretty basic but no other game that have originality like Ragnarok.

The thing is the costumes,armor,mounts... basically every other equipment//accessories are limited and this makes the exitement goes down once playing after a while. Events should give unique equipment//accessories which are not bound by high levels. To wrap it up the equipments//accessories should have a vast variety so players' characters seem more unique than others which drives them to play for long hours because they want to stand out with their unique characters.

People are saying trash about the game just because they can't get a good view//graphics of the game or lagging, blame on your Rig for being low spec. Judge the game by the mechanics or base story.

I would recommend this game to most of my friends and hope game Devs could change it up a little to make it more 'UNIQUE". But so far my first time playing the game for few hours was great.

Ragnarok Online 2: The Extremely Generic MMO Experience.

I remember the good old days of Ragnarok Online, with its cartoony top-down anime art style, cool spell/skill animations, and overall fun appeal. So naturally, when I heard there was to be a sequel, a 3D sequel at that, I was ecstatic.

-Insert several years of waiting here-

Then came the day when I heard Ragnarok Online 2 was available for play. I was stoked. What followed was roughly 45 hours of the most generic game I've ever played and refused to finish.

Where do I even start? I can safely say that I've played my fair share of MMO games, reaching into experiencing roughly 30+ different games. In the ones where I could make a character specific (Such as Mage, Warrior, etc), I would choose to make the healer. The most sought after, rarely played, and hardest to solo of them all. I also had a few other friends who were playing RO2 alongside myself. Well, over the internet of course.

The whole time we were playing, it just felt like a tedious run here, do this, run back kind of game. At first, I wanted to give RO2 the benefit of the doubt, but after hitting the 2 hour mark, I could see, and sadly admit to myself, that this game was just not that fun, even with other people!

During solo play, I found myself just mashing the 1 key to do my basic "Holy Light" attack, or whatever the skill was called. I barely gained another useful attacking skill for practically the entire time I played.

Playing with the group however was a more enjoyable experience. At least then, I was able to use my Heal, Revive, and Buff skill.

One of the cool things this game did have was the Card System. Almost every monster in the game would drop a card. These cards could be equipped; up to five. Certain sets would give you bonuses, and it gave the game a somewhat Pokemon-esque feel.

While the quests were generic, there was always a plentiful amount. Story, Side, Dungeon, Monster Hunters, and more. You never needed to worry about needing something to do.

Something Ragnarok Online 2 does that I absolutely LOATHE is having items, equipment, and mounts that had time-limits. Yep, you read correctly. Time-limits. The worst possible feature a game can have.

Oh, and the class change in this game is nowhere near as awesome as the first game. You finish the quest and the person just says: Congrats, you're now a X, whereas in the first one, you had a light beam down on you and your clothes would change.

Eventually I just got to a point where I said "I'm done." RO2 eventually becomes more of a chore than a game.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quests: As basic as they can get; Split into the trio of: Go Kill X, Talk To X, Gather X.

Character Customization: Limited. Pretty much just Hair, Face, and Eyes.

Graphics: While it's a nice touch to have Ragnarok venture into the 3D world, it lacks the detail of the original. From character models to environments to monsters, everything is very, VERY, bland and lackluster. One thing I will give RO2 is that it is quite colorful.

Gameplay: Auto-Attack or Mash 1st Skill in HotBar.

Monsters: RO2 definitely took the easy way out with its creatures, having many of the same monster models with varying color schemes.

Sound: Nothing really stands out as bad, yet nothing stands out as great.

Fun Factor: 4/10
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bright and Colorful settings, A unique card system, and some interesting boss fights just aren't enough to save this overly generic, bland MMO.

~3 out of 10~

The GM promised us capes for an guild event - never delievered,
not only that - they actually handed out free Egg DNA pieces to their friends,
there was a lot of proof on the forum,
many ppl quit,
too many bug,
not balanced,
P2W

Would not recommend
RO1 rating 9,5/10
RO2 rating 6/10

P.S - Look at my god damn HR recorded and you will know how much time i spent on this game, never spent a cent - always trying my best - but this game has too many god damn flaws.

I have been playing this game for since it was released on Steam.

Seen everything this game has to offer with a max level character, level 85 (ML35.)[ATM] With the new content being released soon, there will be more adventure's and areas to explore. I am addicted to this game with nearly 30 characters scattered throughout various accounts and have experienced every single class available in the game. Seen the ups and downs of the game. I've decided to stick by this game for better or worse.

Everyone that has reviewed this game in the past has experienced some unfortunate bugs that have been long since patched. If you haven't given this game a try and are going by the reviews, judge this game for yourself. This review might get a ton of thumbs down but whatever.
________________________________________________________________

Due to numerous people asking for me to go more in depth with this review, here we go.

---HISTORY---

2 years ago this game was released as Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second, a wonderful & more challenging time. Everything was kind of difficult to do and most of the time people rejected you because of not having a specific amount of health for raid dungeons.

September 12, 2013, they released the Noel class.

December 2013, (can't remember the specific date like the previous one) this game was renamed to Ragnarok Online 2: Advent of Valkyrie introducing Master Level. ***[Side Note, master level is pretty much rebirth on RO1 but ONLY your display level is reset back to 1 (51).]*** With master level, the older content became easy to do. Until the ramped up the difficultly on the raid dungeons, still soloable if you have the right gears and junk. That same year, the korean server closed.

October 2014, the SEA server merged with us making the game iRO2 (International Ragnarok Online 2) and a sperate server called "Freyja."

July 28, 2015, the TW server merging with Freyja.

---UPDATE---

The last major update was the remake of Forgotten Payon and boosting the level cap to 85 (ML35). In August they will be releasing Jawaii, the honeymoon place from RO1. Awhile back they said that a marriage system would not be added with Jawaii but according to the "Will you marry me?" event on the forums, it might be added. (Ovvvvvver jooooooyed)

---GAMEPLAY---

***People have complained that it just a clone of WoW. I have not played nor will ever play WoW so I do not know about that. There are folks on the forums here on steam saying that the camera and movement is terrible. Everyone will exerience different things according to their machines and their connection to the server.***

The basic levels, 1-50 are so easy to fly through combat level and professional levels alike. There are EXP events every weekend and sometimes during the weekdays to help players with grinding. Level 51-85 aka ML1-ML35, is just grinding of course you can do the Morroc and Dayr Desert quests to boost for MP this could be the main questline or all of the Daily Quests. This is where the EXP events mentioned before comes into play making grinding so much less painful. The current end game gears is Eddga, the "powerful" gear which was specifically designed for PvP. Most of my friends and myself, have stuck with the previous end game gears Cazar & Himmelmez. Now for the what you can do after reaching the max level, anything that you want to do. PvP in WoE (Guild vs Guild, located in Prontera & Morroc), helping low leveled players, collecting items, taking part in Trivia for prizes, farming for items, gears or pets and so on.

If this is not in depth enough for you, just say so. With so much experience in this game I just picked key points and just touched on specific topics. I apologize if this is unorganized, this is my thought process.

I've never experienced another MMO with this many bugs.

First, in order to log in with Steam there is a separate launcher from the game. This only works half the time and there is no way to manually log in. After every update it stops working or sometimes it just stops working for no apparent reason. Second, quests are bugged. I've had a main storyline quest just break with no way to recover it and no other quests available, effectively making the entire character useless. Google revealed that there are several quests in particular that have been broken for years without anyone working on them. Third, the prices for items are different depending if you are on the Warp Portal website or if you're on Steam. The best deals are on their site. Also, some items expire after a couple of days (which is bad if you can't log in half of the time.)

The game has been doctored so that Warp Portal can make more money. In the original Korean servers, there are quite a few Tiger mounts that you could purchase for in game money. All of these have been removed and put in a cash shop were you have a CHANCE at getting them permamently in a box. (There is only one mount available that does not require real money.) Costumes are not permament either. Most costumes expire after 30 days and you need to buy extenders to keep it. Both these items cost real money. If you want a permament costume the only way to get it is by more chance items, or by getting a lot of rare stones to play a pyramid game (which has an extrememly low chance of getting an item.) Inventory / Bank space is severely limited. Only 'medium' bags are dropped / purchasable which hardly have any slots. You will get these at level 10. If you want actual space, you need to buy bags from the cash shop. RO2 may not be a 'pay to win' but it sure is a 'pay to do anything fun' sort of game. Server population is pretty low. No one seems to be socializing. In fact, all the social interaction I had was a creepy guy hitting on me. So, if you play MMOs in hopes of finding some new buddies to talk too, you won't find them here.

If you insist on plaything this game, do not do it through Steam. Go to the site itself, or better yet find another company / private server. Warp portal is not doing a good job integrating RO2 with Steam. If the game actually worked as intended I might suggest it for someone looking for a casual game to play with friends (if you don't mind old school rpg grinding) but since Warp portal provides such a terrible service, I suggest trying one of Aeria Games' anime MMOs instead. They have a cash shop too, but they are more fair about what they give you.

Overall RO2 is a HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT and I am not saying this because it is different from the first game. I am saying this because of the bugs, Warp portal's poor choice of business model and all the issues I've been having. I've played a ton of f2p mmos and none have quite been this bad. You have been warned!

Stay away from this game. It had a lot of potential when it first arrived here on Steam despite early showings of a pay2win model. Unfortunately, despite all of our hopes, the game did indeed decide to milk us for all we're worth. The classes were extrememly unablanced the last time I played and other than my own guild, the community was possibly one of the worst I had ever had the misfortune to play with.

I wouldn't touch this game again if they paid me.
