  1. The textures and color vibrancy will blow you away.
  2. In this light-hearted whimsical title from one of the largest online gaming companies in South Korea, Ragnarok Online combines simplified RPG controls, bloodless combat, anime art and addictive social communities to create a truly unique online experience.
  3. Strictly for the anime, console-style RPG crowd, but if you’re in that group you may find yourself having a good time.
  4. While it does lend itself towards anime lovers, it is wonderfully done and I believe that everyone will find SOMETHING they enjoy about this game. You'll receive days, if not weeks, of pleasure from Ragnarok Online.

    A great game for those looking to try out the Korean style of MMORPG, but it really fails to rise to the standards needed to compete with the current heavy hitters in the industry. On the plus side, Gravity is gracious enough to give all of their potential players a free 15 day trial to see if Ragnarok just might be that MMORPG that they have been yearning for.
