tried this game... the graphics are horrible. I wonder why they went with such a super low resolution??? It was uninstalled in less than 5 minutes.

Very fun game for anyone who isn't a 12-year-old obsessed with graphics. Despite the low resolution, it is a very good beatemup MMO. Much better combat than most MMOs(Including WoW until you get to later raiding..but why bore yourself with questing on that when you could have fun within an hour or two on DFO? By level 10, which takes 1-2 hours, you'll have enough abilities to have a good time)

Used to have a terrible grind, but the fixed that and it is now up to par with the Japanese version IIRC. Getting to level 20 from 18 can be rough because you change to your subclass and often ditch quite a few skills to specialize, but from 20 on it is great for most classes.

Again, the main joy of this game is that the combat is actually enjoyable. You want to fight enemies in dungeons, unlike on the typical MMO where you just go kill 10 braindead mobs by slamming 2 abilities. The beatemup gameplay combined with a good deal of complexity is fantastic.

This game is an excellent combination of MMO and throwback arcade action fighter. If you can get over the 16-bit graphics (or if you are like me and love them), then you will be treated to a pretty complex, well executed and fast-paced game. Its like final fight/double dragon but with gear, levels and alot more skills. Its sort of a hybrid sidescroller action with more complex fighting game elements. Its worth a look if you want to try something different from the standard MMO fare.

The resolution may be low, but the game is big on fun! I think the graphics are nice, bright and colorful and full of variety for the 2-D hand-drawn style they are in.

If you loved Altered Beast on the Sega Genesis you will love this game. If not and you demand more of a game in the year 2010,,, steer clear.

i just wanna add... this game needs to be ported to android. This is a perfect candidate for a fun MMO for smartphones!
