Maplestory is hands down one of the best free-to-play MMORPGs of all time. The game’s varied gameplay and catchy game music will keep you hooked from the moment you start playing. The game’s sheer amount of content and variety is another reason to give the game a try. Maplestory is definitely worth the download, so go download it!
The cutesy Japanese cartoon-style graphics may not be to everyone's liking but we reckon they're gorgeous and help to make MapleStory a fantastic alternative to the run-of-the-mill MMORPGs. MapleStory is a rich, detailed MMORPG that is perfect for beginners and experts alike.
MapleStory is definitely not for everyone. Though it can be played casually or taken seriously as a hardcore MMO, it will hardly draw WoW players away from Azeroth. What it does offer though is a gorgeously drawn, huge world to roam around, albeit on a 2D plane, different factions to play as, hundreds of quests to partake in, and loads of players to join up with.

MapleStory is een verslavende 2D MMO-game, maar dan moet je er wel heel veel repetitiviteit bijnemen ...

Pets provide another layer of depth in this game, but must be bought from the cash or item shop with real money, and like any items purchased from the cash shop, they last only 90 days, whereupon the owner must buy a "water of life" and perform a quest to revive it. The cash shop also provides "fluff" avatar customization items and it's easy to get in a never-ending cycle of buying items with real cash. Platform gameplay can be very engaging and the large community a draw into this game.
