Metin 2, all over again.
+good equipment upgrade system
+fun to play with friends
-repetitive in late game
You either low or hate it, there is nothing else to it. The official metin is bad, the private ones are fine. Not great, no terrible will be fitting quote to this game.
Metin2 is the solid definition of a mediocre MMORPG, it's not fun or frustrating to play, it's only worth your time if you have friends willing to play it. The graphics in this game are fine at best, the textures are low quality but the world can be sometimes nice to look at, mostly in those later stages. The music is probably it's best part, it's definitely hard to get it out of your head. The weakest part of this game is the grinding, it's extremely tedious and unrewarding and the quests don't help you level up too much either, sometimes I had to clench my teeth and push through the game. The character design is also not great, while the male and female player are both equally sexualised at the beginning, when you equip your first set of armor it's clear how perverted the game devs were, or maybe just doing fan service, who knows. The female enemies are not badass at all and even during near death situations find time to talk about shopping or men, which is totally realistic, everyone knows in real life female soldiers just talk about girly stuff, even during intense firefights. (Sarcasm.)
Some quests require a specific thing to drop from a specific enemy, but they almost never drops, some things like the birthday present quest take ages to complete because of that. Overall the game is just about fine, it won't waste your time but it will not fully refund it either.
It captures your atttention being able to interract with other players. However his game has been made hard, so that the players pay real money to make it easier. Hard to make in-game money and to level up.
There are also balance issues with the skills for each class, including bugs, that have not yet been fixed ever since the game has been released (2008). Notably, Dragon Shamans had bugs in 4 of their 6 main skills. Of those, 3 of them were all of their offensive skills, which were dealing a decreased damage rate against all targets. At the same time, Dragon Strength gave significantly less chance for critical strike at skills. If anyone would reach the maximum 51.4% critical chance, only about 17 for every 100 skills would be critical hits. Such a high standard deviation.
Obviously, there are better games to have fun with. There is reason that the vast majority of old players (including me) have abandoned it.
SummaryMetin2 is a massive multiplayer online role-playing (MMORPG) game which is packed with great features including quests, guild battles and nation wars. With a completely revamped Battle System, Metin2 is one of the best in any real time MMORPG to date. Metin2 simulates the speed and fierceness of real world fighting.
