If one has read any of the reviews for this game, you will already know about the Stress and limited play per day.
If one can ignore that for a moment, one will discover plenty of other reasons to avoid this game. Let's also put aside the inconsistencies in translations (especially noticeable on set items), and the dreadful canvas chat that most players use to draw male genitalia.

The character creation is severely limited. Not only are there gender locked classes, there are only 3 or so faces, the incredibly stupid "Chest" slider for females, and limited choices of hair & skin colors. Want more colors and faces? Prepare to pay for them! Dyes for hair & skin can be bought. But not only that, there are multiple dye levels (ranging from $.50 to $4 each), with the most expensive giving you a chance to make one's color pick more precise. I am not kidding. I've never seen something so ridiculous in all my gaming years. Dyes are available for weapons, armors, avatar or costume pieces, and what is labeled "vehicles" or mounts.

Another pay item, mounts. Most MMOs have them, horses or other creatures that allow one to get around faster. Dark Blood's pay mounts are NOT PERMANENT. For a 30-day mount, it's $12 USD. Who in their right mind would pay that much?
Storage expansion, $4 for 30 days. Shared storage, which, like most of the other things this game requires payment for, is usually standard for a game like this: $2 for 30 days.


I feel ashamed for getting my brothers to try this game with me on its release day. I do not recommend this game at all! Stay away! Or if one needs further proof, install the game just to check out the in-game store.


08/06/2014: I found out that when using a dye, one must select a box of color from the palette. After that, get ready for something even worse than what I orginally thought, a little circle bounces around the area that was selected. Then one must press "Stop" and whatever color it lands on is the color that the weapon/armor/hair/skin/mount is changed to.

There was also new ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ added to the in game store recently. The boxes that give you a random Vampire or Samurai avatar item... can give potions instead. NOWHERE in the description for the item does it say could also drop potions. This game is bordering on fraud.

This game has a few serious issues that corrupt an otherwise fun game. The primary, and most offensive issue is the "stress" system. You can only go into so many areas and fight before you are too "stressed" to continue. The fanboys of this game will be happy to point out that you can still happily wander around town and ogle your character, or go fishing and craft a potion to extend your playtime. Either way, this type of mechanic is unnacceptable and unnecessary in a f2p game. (If you doubt that statement, I'd like to cite 'League of Legends,' 'Path of Exile,' and 'Marvel Heroes' as just a few examples of successful f2p games without gameplay limiting cash grab mechanics.

The second problem with this game was the worst, copious, obstructive, intrusive, and completely over the top screen tearing I have ever seen. Yes, there is a check box for v-sync. No, that check box doesn't work. Yes, I tried to find a solution on the forums. Yes, my google-fu failed me.

The last, and slightest problem with this game, is the ridiculous and over the top boob physics, complete with boob size slider action! Yes, you too can now create your very own pair of walking, fighting boobs! Normally, I could care less about this sort of thing, however in this game, it was just bizarre, and gave it the feeling of playing a bad boob jiggle sim.

In conclusion, I plead with you to avoid downloading this horrid steaming pile. The fighting mechanics are alright, and honestly, I'd probly have stuck with it a lot longer if they hadn't included that horrendous "stress" system. Send greedy publishers a message, and avoid at all costs.

I've really enjoyed this game since launch, it's exactly the type of game I was looking for, I love the artwork, animations, I love how the combat is skill based, you have flashy skills and combos in PvP, fun and interesting dungeons for PvE, and the boss fights are very enjoyable, you have 6 character slots right away, for a F2P game, does that even happen anymore?

You're able to find costume sets for your character while you dungeon, while you fish, you can trade them with other players, so your character isn't stuck looking ugly for the entire game, until you pay the game developers $ like in some other games.

To address the negative reviews quickly, before today there was a fairly strict limit on how many times you could run dungeons per character each day, that limit has since been doubled, with the new stress/fatigue system you're able to run dungeons for 4-5+ hours a day per character, so it's extremely reasonable now, you also have daily quests and different ways to to reduce your stress limit.

Also just to add before ending my review here, the devs actually seem to care about the game, and what the community thinks, there's been countless bug fixes and suggestions that they've already added into the game, and it hasn't even been 2 weeks yet. They've all been watching the forums obviously very closely and seeing what everybody thinks about the game. +1 For that.

This game is definitely worth trying out, it's free to play so you have nothing to lose. Cya in-game! :)

Limited gameplay (Yeah its a permanent feature get used to it)
Cant log in half the time (Guess they can only support so many people at once)
Its a near rip off of DFO (Which is being re-released soon), the skills and character designs and how the game plays.
Its just something to avoid...

Reply how you wish to this review, You'll soon realize how wrong you are.

Holy @#$% this is an awesome game, keep in mind this review is only with a few hours played. I was an avid DFO player but I love both of these games equally now, but even DFO did not have such a god-awful fatigue system as this.


Gameplay: 8.5/10
Visuals: 9/10 The concept art during the loading screens are even more amazing
While the visuals are not overly amazing they have a beautiful contrast and accent, 3D models on a sidescrolling plain is extremely odd but original and stunning.
Music: 6/10 some of the tracks were amazing enough to make me want to buy them and others, not so much
Story: boobs/10 Seriously, I can't pay attention to any of the storyline while playing my mage (my fellow men know this issue)
boobs: 11/10
Stress system: -39/10
Final verdict: Get rid of the mother f%&$ing stress system you jivey mother #$%@ers


Even though the fatigue system is kind of crappy on this game, I would still like to recommend it to anyone who is interested. I'd like to say "ignore all the other guides imposing that the game is not worth playing solely because of the energy gate" but, I'm afraid I would have every other reviewer here all up in my sh^& about it. If you're interested, try it, don't get turned away by the reviews. For the little time that this game is playable, it is a gem and I would love to encourage more people to discover it.
