Dragon Nest is a free-to-play fantasy-based MMORPG game that is available to download online. Although the game specifies you only need a minimum of 512MB RAM to play the game, it’s advisable that you have at least 1GB RAM or more in order to play the game smoothly. This is because the game was only released in 2010 and once you see the impressive visuals, you will know why you will need a decent computer to run it without any problems.
As aforementioned, Dragon Nest’s visuals are stunning. It looks like an improved graphics engine of World of Warcraft. They are bright and colorful much like most other games developed in Japan and Korea. This is something I really admired as other MMORPG games can get boring when they are set in darkened areas like caves and dungeons.
In terms of character model designs, the main characters that you will be a small and cute looking. They are small looking elf-like characters and there are four of them to choose from at the start of the game. Depending on your personal preferences when it comes to combat you can choose to be a warrior, archer, sorceress or cleric. When you further progress into Dragon Nest, you are to level-up one of the four classes you have chosen to become an expert at that type of combat you initially specialized on.
Once you have created yout character, you are all good to go. As aforementioned, Dragon Nest is a really new game so it pays to check your computer’s specifications first if you want download it. There is an option to play the game using its low settings too but playing the game on a higher setting gives out the best results.
In terms of Dragon Nest’s game play, it is unlike most other MMO RPG games on the market right now. You don’t control the character using your mouse as you can use your computer’s keyboards instead. Not only that but combat in the game is fast, quick and very smooth. If you’ve ever played hack-n-slash type titles such as the God of War or Devil May Cry games, you will understand the type of smooth game play that is on offer here in Dragon Nest. It’s quite refreshing considering many MMORPG games offer clucky combat controls when you use the mouse in lieu of the keyboard…
Much like most other games from its genre, you have the option to follow all the main story quests or you can choose to do the may side quests that are on offer as well. There are a number of different enemies in the game that range between small bats, spiders to even orcs and ogres. Fans of the Lord of The Rings movies will feel right at home with Dragon Nest’s game design.
There are towns you can visit in the game too. It is here where you can purchase and improve your weapons and armor. Many of the NPCs hang around the towns so it pays to visit them from time-to-time as they may offer new quests for you to undertake.
Dragon Nest is a highly enjoyable MMORPG game. The combat system is what separates it from many other games from the same genre. Even though it’s free-to-play and download, just make sure you have a powerful enough computer in order to run it. The game came out in most countries in 2010 so expect the PC specifications to be higher than usual.
