Short Version:
It can be fun, but it's pretty clear that development for this online game ended back in 2013, meaning it has no future, and I expect this version to be shut down around the middle of 2015, or sooner. I'd suggest you not bother with the game, but if you really want to start playing, don't plan around any sort of long term investment.



Long Version:
This is a game in the same online brawler RPG genre of other games such as Dungeon Fighter Online (DFO), Continent of the Ninth (C9), and Elsword, but being 2.5D shares more in common with other 2.5D games within the genre like DFO. I've been playing this game off, and on for a few years now through different publishers, in various regions. It can be fun, but also can suffer from various annoyances like excessive environmental clutter, overly flashy effects, or related, which can make it difficult to see what's going on, so you'll get hit, or killed as a result, which feels cheap. As this is a 2.5D game, with characters, and enemies that are generally tall, or even flying/floating, it can be troublesome to line up your attacks just right, especially when skills can have a small vertical AoE range. Then even though some like it, being forced to play as a completely different character from your own to complete some quests is something I've always found rather annoying. All that, and other things aside, once you get into a good grove, and you're using a class you like, playing can be pretty fun.

The real problem is that this game is evidently no longer being developed, an online game with no continued development, will be shut down, and once that happens, you can't play anymore. If I remember the dates correctly Dark Blood was shut down in Japan in May 2014, China in August 2014, and South Korea in September 2014. Considering as how those in South Korea, Japan, and maybe even China can also play this version, and as the South Korean release was already without new content for about a year when it was shut down, if there was ANY intent to further develop the game, the publisher (NEXON GT, formally known as GameHi) should have been extremely anxious to tell everyone about that from the start. Instead, they've been avoiding the issue at every turn, their silence on the matter says a lot. The longer that went on, the less willing I was to keep playing, till I eventually quit.

Considering how quickly they were releasing old content when there clearly was no new content to follow that up with, their seemingly minimal investment in the game (using Facebook, and the Steam community hub as a game website, when they have a company site to run one from, not getting proper translations done, etc), and how they completely avoid the topic of the game's future, it looks like they planned for this to be a short lived venture from the start. At this point, I doubt this release will even make it to its one year anniversary (July 22, 2015). Getting into an online game with such a dismal future is not something I can in good conscience recommend to anyone.

Feels more like a browser game than a standalone game. Action-RPG in style of eastern games (lots of monsters, big numbers floating around, etc.) Sometimes too fast to notice anything. Not very hard to master, controls are keyboard (or gamepad if you prefer) centered. Graphics are not very bad but nothing special, either. Store sells cosmetic things like costumes and skins. Its an average game, in general.

Awesome Game! Very freindly community. However like most other F2P be careful of the nickle and diming with the ingame store items. I wasnt a fan of the "stress" system but I noticed the higher level I got the longer it took to actually reach the daily cap. Over all very fun/addictive game. I recommend giving it a solid shot.

Medival DFO. Keeps you in the mood until March 2015 starts and you start playing actual DFO.
