It's Gameloft so it'll suck and Pocket Legends isn't an MMO.

@Miffy I agree with you Pocket Legends shouldn't even be classified as an MMO

Gameloft is the China of the mobile gaming industry. They don't even try to deny that they basically steal games. But I wonder who is to blame, the company that makes the games or the idiots that buy them.

The Pocket Legends advert is so cringe-worthy, it'll get the desired attention I think though.

Wasn't even aware of this games existence; downloading now. Should be at least something to do when waiting at the doctor tomorrow.

So far not bad considering the platform. A decent enough time waster when out and about.

The Pocket Legends commercial is the worst video game ad made in the last 2 decades. In the eighties a commercial like that would be the norm, but I thought everybody realized cheesy commercials like that just don't sell games. I'm sure it will get plenty of views, most from people unknowingly linked there, but I'd bet that ~90% of people that see it won't even go to the website.

@Hal9666 IDK, I bet those secret gamers lurking out there will check it out on their iPhones. Even then, 10% would be pretty incredible 0_o. Even 99% of people not going to the website compared to who is seeing it can translate into huge numbers.

Anyway, I can't tell if I think what Gameloft is doing is good or bad. I mean, it's a pretty blatant rip off, much worse than all the f2p WoW clones, at least those all have their own stories and races and classes. But it's not like Blizzard is ever going to release WoW on the iphone either, just because it would obviously be pretty sub par. But it's such a blatant rip off how can you let them get away with it?

Actually, I kind of hope Blizz does start doing some iPhone work... I wonder if they've even thought about it seriously. If Blizz made WoW on the iPhone, and did that whole tie in thing, you can use currency you've earned playing the iPhone game on non combat pets and such. Aka you "buy" the code in the iPhone game by turning in gold in the iPhone game that you can then apply to WoW. I'm glad Blizzard isn't doing anything facebook, but I think the smart phones could be interesting.
That's what someone needs to ask them next time they're doing an interview, if they're considering the mobile phone market, and what types of games they could envision themselves making for it.

@Averice BTW, is pocket legends a rip off of something? It doesn't make me think of anything, but I haven't done many dungeon crawlers for awhile, waiting on diablo 3 and all that. If it isn't, then grats on them for their own IP.

Reminds me most of a game by the name of Earth Eternal. Basically a WoW-esque MMO where you played as some variant of animal. (for the most part).
I haven't played much with it, but thus far the main thing that bugs me is the class/race/gender lock. I know it's a mobile platform, more limited than a pc, etc, etc, but that always bugs me in a game.
