Despite the complaints on the stress system, I actually like this game.
The quest successions aka storylines aren't terrible. They're actually alright,
Combat is pretty self explanitory, If you co-ordinate your moves you'll do well.
When you're low on, or plain run out of stress there are other things to do. Work on fishing/collecting/upgrade weapons.\
Asura's dungeons do not use stress.
Playable when drinking
Community in game vs the boards is rather lacking from what I've seen. However visiting on a busier channel can help if you're looking to party up.
Stress system limits gameplay, especially in earlier levels. However it's FTP and they have recently increased the stress system so it's a bit better
Characters are gender based on class, pretty irritating
Store is ridiculously expensive
On a whole? This game actually has potetial, however the player base isn't high enough to utilze what it could do (player based stores, expanded guild stuff, current parties regardless of level). It doesn't help that there are constantly leveling promotions ongoing. While that works for simple things, it does make the current max level of 50 too easy to achieve for some players. This game, I spend more time then I care to admit playing it, however I think the creators could do better. As a FTP, I'd give it a go. It is fun, however I have a feeling that it won't be around for terribly long.
