Everything from Ragnarok Online’s beautifully animated game world to the content rich gameplay helps make it one of the best free to play MMORPGs of all time. The only real drawback is that the game is heavily grind oriented and the questing system needs to be entirely remade.

I finally got the chance to play a game that I have been wanting to for a VERY long time and let me tell you, Ragnarok Online is worth every penny.

If every MMORPG was a group at your old High School, Ragnarok would be the “Wanderers.” It doesn’t fit into any real group, but can nonetheless be part of any of them at any time. You’ll notice similarities to other games in Ragnarok, but at the same time, Ragnarok is as original as the TV Dinner. Ragnarok doesn’t require players to strain themselves with practice and tutorials to get a good chunk into the game, but if you do, it will not go unrewarded. Taking the plunge in Ragnarok takes you deeper, but doesn’t make it harder to return upwards either (Otherwise no commitment). The community within Ragnarok also contains one of the nicer crowds I’ve experienced from other MMORPG’s.

With a unique look and aural backing, and limitless gameplay, Ragnarok Online is a very deep and rich experience. From exploring countless dungeons, to seeking innumerable items, there is always something to do in the world of Midgard. The variables presented by guild wars and the constant updates make the possibilities limitless – just be mindful of the heavy time investment required of you.

Le jeu est graphiquement parlant assez beau. Les personnages sont en 2D (bien dessinés) et évoluent sur des cartes en 3D. Les developeurs appelent ça de la pseudo 3D .Vous l'aurez comprit, il n'y a pas vraiment de "but" dans RO. A ne pas confondre avec un RPG dit "console". Malgres quelques quêtes que l'on retrouve présentes, vous devrez toujours augmenter de niveaux et acquérir de nouveaux équipements pour prétendre etre le meilleur. Ajoutez à celà un RP (Role Playing) important, ou rejoindre une guilde sera indispensable pour progresser (quoique certains joueurs prefèrent évoluer seul). Bref, RO est un mmorpg sympatique. La langue est principalement en anglais, bien que la communauté francaise soit importante.

With such a diverse game world, Ragnarok Online will keep a player engrossed for a very long time with new patches and updates frequently providing a completely new gaming experience. The magical elements in the game can be a bit stifling and the language of the players is offensive at times when the language filter is turned off, facts that parents need to keep in mind when allowing children to play. The graphics in Ragnarok Online are more than respectable and the players are usually friendly to group with, which is really important to making this game enjoyable. There are more than enough jobs and game features to try out until a comfortable niche is found; whether it be pet raising, treasure hunting, or helping new players power-level, Ragnarok Online has plenty of features to keep players busy.

Developpé par les studio coréens Gravity Corp., ce petit MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) fait de très nombreux émules à travers le monde. Evoluant dans le monde de Midgard, inspiré de la série éponyme de MYUNG-JIN LEE, le but du jeu est très simple, il vous suffit de faire évoluer votre personnage en annihilant des monstres, et réaliser quelques quêtes minimales qui vous apporteront items ou classes supérieures. Des modes annexes se greffent à ce gameplay comme Les « War Of Emperium » (WOE) ou bien le mode du Joueur contre Joueur (PvP). Ce jeu est en téléchargement gratuit et ne vous coûtera que 12€ par mois, cependant des serveurs gratuits sont disponibles.

If you know your Norse mythology, then Ragnarok Online may conjure visions of a game filled with mighty Viking warriors fighting in the final battle of good and evil between the forces of Odin and Loki’s army of giants and trolls. Well if that’s what you’re expecting in the game you’re in for a big surprise. Ragnarok Online may pay titular homage to the twilight of the gods and be set in a world known as Midgard, but it is a Japanese-style RPG game through and through. At least I don’t remember there being any sagas in which Thor had to vanquish smiling bouncing mushrooms, but I could be wrong. Anyway, if you’re not into the whole manga/anime thing you can be pretty certain that Ragnarok Online is not for you. Otherwise you may want to see for yourself what has made the game such a huge hit in its native Korea.

Das Online-Rollenspiel Ragnarok Online schickt Sie als Anime-Streiter in Mausklickkämpfe. Die ausgefeilte Spielmachnik täuscht nicht über die grausame Optik hinweg: Krümelige 2D-Heroes beleidigen das Auge. Nur für eingefleischte Online-Helden.

It's been a productive few years for 'hack and slash' RPGs. Typically isometric 3/4 top down games with real time battle systems, it's been argued time and time again in the RPG community whether or not these games are in fact RPGs. Regardless of the debate, North American gamers now have the chance to play Ragnarok Online, a recently released hack and slash style MMORPG based on a relatively obscure series of Manga drawn by Myoujin Lee. Made by Korean developer Gravity, this MMORPG continues the trend of foreign companies making extremely popular online games of late. During the free open Beta test period, over ten thousand people logged on the game daily.
