I’m not really much of a gamer, but I do love video games and play them occasionally.
And even though I’m not even half as great as the streamers you would normally see in social media, I know when I like the game: I can’t let a day pass without playing it!
I learned about Ragnarok Journey, the newly released browser version of the classic Ragnarok online just this week ago. It’s a nod to the game we all loved during our high school days—with some upgrades!
Since I had prior gaming experience, I decided to give it a try for a week. Read on for my first impressions on the game:
I still prefer the original interface because this one has too much on display; making it a bit cluttered and my movements were limited. But the animation and graphics is fairly okay—the color is richer, detailed, and doesn’t take too long to load despite of the quality.
Music and sound effects can amplify the experience, so just imagine my joy when I heard the Theme of Prontera upon entering the city! It’s a great thing that the music is retained for added atmosphere and nostalgia.
The Autoplay Feature
This feature has pros and cons. Since the game can be accessed through a browser, the Autoplay feature can be a good thing if you want to keep your character going and fighting off monsters while you’re switching between tabs. It is also great for players who wants to level up and finish quests faster.
On the other hand, you may not like it if you want first-hand experience navigating through the game. There are times when I feel like the feature is too much for casual gaming because I’m losing the fun of knowing the game through my own terms, just like what is usually done in the classic version (unless you use a bot).
This game never fails to keep me awake! There are tons of activities to do like joining tournaments, quests, guilds, and a lot more. Levelling up is faster too and more features and missions add up every time you raise a rank or change jobs! I also love the fact that I can still go casual and accept quest whenever I feel like it.
Most importantly, I get to upgrade my skills, my equipment, and even have bouncing Poring as a pet—sweet!
I had a great week playing this game; literally spending my Saturday journeying to different cities by foot. This browser version is more accessible because you don’t need to install and patch a client just to play the game. It’s become more user-friendly that people new into the game can easily get the hang of it.
Although tagged as a casual MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game), this game will not bore you out with its eye-catching visuals and countless exploits!
Some hard core fans may or may not agree with my thoughts, but I hope that game enthusiasts who hasn’t played this game yet should give it a try and experience the fun themselves. Check out playroweb.com and start your own journey today!
