Let me preface the review by stating that I tend to be extremely thorough when I give feedback to a game. This will be a very long post, but I intend to provide clear, current information about the game so that readers might make an informed decision before committing to a download. Though I may not have put thousands of hours into Latale, I'm an old MMO hand and extremely picky when it comes to games - the eighty hours of gameplay I've put in were enough to get a character to level 160, create a guild, and otherwise see everything the game has to offer. As such, I have some valid input - I encourage you to read everything I have to say.

Please note that the date of this review is Septemeber, 2015. The information provided should only be considered accurate up to this date. Drastic changes have been made to LaTale and more will undoubtedly come. Keep this fact in mind if you find this review at a later date. Tha being said, lets dive on in.


-Confusing quests/translations
-Content is a year behind the Korean version
-Content has been constantly and drastically changed
-Content is broken or unfinished in some places
-Community is lacking members, support, guides, and information
-Gameplay is entirely quest-based and far too easy
-Enchanting destroys your items gratuitously, despite the initial "95%" success rate (there are hidden factors that cause items to explode way more than they should - trust me, I did the math)
-Crafting is limited, requires a huge initial investment to be able to use, and has depressingly low success rates

-The sub-class is useless
-Sprinting mechanic is clunky
-Players don't control passive stat point allocation upon leveling
-There are many vestigial items left in the game (items that once were used for crafting, alchemy, or upgrades and currently have no apparent function)
-FALSE DIFFICULTY (only time you die is when creatures render you immobile by "chain attacking" as a mob so you can't move, jump, attack... other features like this make it seem unfair to the player and is just frustrating)
-Questing becomes unimaginative and repetitive
-Certain consumables have extra-long cooldowns when they really shouldn't have one to begin with
-Certain classes are clearly better than others (cardmaster) and yet others are clearly pointless to play (poor knights...)

-100% free to play
-There is no pressure or need to spend money on fashion items (which can be bought through NPCs or players with in-game currency)
-Devs are generous and frequently give free cash shop items
-Small, friendly community
-Game economy is stable
-Plenty of things to keep you busy after reaching lvl200
-Beautiful art, music, and animations
-Endless quests
-Plenty of ways to add passive stats to your character (guilds, dating, item codex, monster images, titles, etc...)
-Decent character customization
-There is no real way to "ruin" a character build
-Despite being behind on content, devs seem to still have presence and update semi-regularly
-In game achievements
-Addictive combo-based fighting
-GOOD PVE equips often FOUND through drops

Now, let me explain some points a bit in further detail and then wrap it up. It may seem like there is a lot of bad here, but consider that a lot of the content issues I have brought up only occur in specific situations. For instance, when I said that some of the content is broken or missing, I am not referring to abundant, general glitchiness. There were a couple situations where broken content clearly inhibited the gameplay. For example, at the water dragon boss - the portal to move to the third instance of the boss fight is broken. I could not continue the fight, so I was not able to finish the quest. This left a bad taste in my mouth because I had to waste a warp capsule and I left the dungeon feeling deprived of potentially awesome content. Things like this frustrate players (especially veteran players who might have nostalgia about that boss).

Furthermore, there were several quests that frustrated me because they were confusing. So they ended up cluttering my quest log. Translation was extremely on-point for this game in terms of grammar. Yet, I found myself wanting more clear and detailed explanations for certain dialogues (which may be attributed to the inherent translational errors resulting from language differences).

For instance - the sub-class quest! If I hadn't done preliminary research on the topic, I would have ended up freaking out because it seems like your character gets demoted to level 140 and loses all its stats, skills, and equipment. I spent hours looking for resources that just werent there (I had to search forums and piece together little tidbits of info just to figure out what exactly the subclass was). If the quest dialogue had been just a tad more explanative and detailed, I would have known that a specific NPC (available in the Guild Hall *take the town portal*) allows you to change between your main class (which isn't lost) and your sub class every -thirty minutes- (which is why the sub-class is utterly useless IMO) Yet another quest has you purchase a special warp capsule to enter a mario-themed 8-bit retro world and complete a series of jump quests. The quest dialogue says absolutely NOTHING about that fact.

The WORST error I discovered was a quest that told me to hunt "Humbaba 18+" monsters, which don't exsist. However, there exists a "Humbaba 14+." Naturally, I assumed these must be the monsters I needed... Nope. Turns out it was a completely different monster, with a completely different name, that I needed to complete that specific quest. That's the sort of error that makes gamers pull hairs and grind teeth. It was a clear content error, which when considered with all the other minor errors and frustration points, made me feel like I was playing an unfinished product.

The fact that the game is free means that I have no real right to complain about recieving a sloppy product. However, there are clear indications that this game was once an MMO giant with tons of features and content. There are vestigial items that indicate crafting was once intricate and involved. You have a mining action, and there are mining spots... but, mining yields no items and has no purpose in the game. There is the option to upgrade your items and add runes, but they don't work or require mining items you will never get. So it's obvious they already had a complete and AWESOME game. What is left is a fragmented ghost of a once amazing and addictive product. Why ruin a good thing?

I gave it some thought and I decided that they ultimately changed the game for the better. If the game is involved and hard, it makes it really convenient for people to take advantage by botting, scamming, and hacking... So the community suffers. Additionally, if the game is so hard and involved that players never reach the level cap - there are so many people who will never get to experience the full game. There will be tons of worlds, quests and monsters they will never see because they refuse to hack the hundred-billion ely needed to create the overenchanted equips necessary to fight high level monsters. OGplanet took a stand against that culture and made the gameplay to where you can just kick back with a friend and have FUN. I feel like the changes targeted stressful time wasters like mining because they inhibit progress and encourage a negative community. Now, you don't even need enchants to PVE well... Just good skills. All in all, it's what I was looking for - a relaxing and colorful FREE MMO with friendly people to kill wild boars with :3 It would be better if it was complete and polished, but I can look past it. Hopefully this review provided enough info for you to decide whether you can look past its faults or not for yourself.

-Cute artstyle
-Simple controls
-Easy to learn game mechanics
-Lively community
-Small download

-Gameplay can be a bit repetitive
-Quests can often blend together (i.e. fetch quests, and grinding)
-Gold can be difficult to come by depending on your level of MMO savvy.

Should I roll with it?:
-If you're a fan of MMO's and you can't afford WOW or have a computer that can run TERA, it's a neat game to try out.
-If not, then go play TF2 or whatever half the steam community does these days.

La Tale is a fun 2d side-scrolling mmorpg. It has a cute artstyle, but the underlying game mechanics are a lot more complex than the appearance would lead you to believe. There's tons of stuff to do in the game, from questing, to gathering up items and cards to build a codex of items/monsters, to instance dungeons that need eight players to do properly.

The recent season three update has vastly improved the game with lots of quality-of-life improvements, as well as making it significantly easier to get to high levels and reach end game. The quest rewards have been significantly enlarged, making leveling, especially in lower levels quite simple. Just do your quests and the levels will follow up till about level 100 when it starts to slow down. (This slow down is temporary, as once you get another ten levels or so the amount of quests pick back up till around level 170/180.)

Give it a try, it's free and a lot of fun. I've been playing it since the closed beta in 2008, and made a new account on Steam just to have it on my account. (I'll admit to wanting the badge too.)

This is one of the best games I've ever seen. While mixing anime with an MMORPG, La Tale was born. This game is one of the best anime MMORPGs on Steam.

The game's community is ranged widley from children to young adults. There is much oppertunity to customize your character the way you like with Fashion Items, yet still functional as you can wear armor underneath. Event gift bundles give way to obtaining cute pets such as the Champion Wannabe Coco pet, a Christmas event reindeer pet.

As much as the community varies, I have not once seen any foul language or explicit topics in the chat. This is amazing and absolutley does make a more enjoyable game experience. Teaming up with other players is fun and a good way to handle Instance Dungeons. All you have to do is click on them and click "Invite to Party". Once they accept all the party members are listed on the left side of the screen, along with how much HP/SP they have. The Party Window allows you to see where all your party members are, so if you end up in a rather confusing Instance Dungeon you can all keep track of what's going on.

Enough about the community, the game itself is an amazing place to play, even solo. The tutorial is quick, but still tells you what you need to know, giving you enough time to get started playing, even if you don't have hours. Equiping things is simple and understand the game's physics is easy. I'm totally addicted (and at this point at level 135 thank you very much). Leveling up is easy and grinding for XP is incredibly profitable in The Link Between Time, an area designed to give you high XP rates for your level, however quests are the best way to level up. I used to think the amount of quests was painful, but I've realised they're there so I can level up and get Guild Points. Monsters have their own sound effects and so do each classes special skills. There are different classes and class advancements for everyone. I've heard of subclasses, except I'm a Soul Lord so I don't know what those are. Most classes have four class advancements, or so I've heard. What I'm trying to say is: this game is just so original and cute that it's highly addictive.

There are a few more things I'd like to highlight:
♥Fishing - Fishing is an incredibly relaxing and quite profitable thing to do, and the Rainbow Fishing Hole in Belos is exceptionally beautiful.
♥The background music - The background music is simply gorgeous, and always fits the area it is used in.
♥Guilds - Like-minded players, UNITE!

Also, another thing, the storyline is intriguing and complex, with many different characters, each with their own personality. Take the situation between Iris, the Dark Moon Princess and Choen Pam.

Overall, if you're looking for something to play, try this game. It comes at a very good price (I.E, free) and you'll enjoy it. Just take my word for it.


I'd like to finish with a Soul class quote
♥Alter your soul; the Darkness is my defence; overcome your cursed destiny and create your own path.♥


Xx ~ <3
