Awesome Game! Definitely Try It Out!

The good:

This game has TONS of options for character building, so many different classes, weapons, armors, spells, pets, etc... Also there are now so many quests to choose from that you can play for months without repeating the same quest over again. New content is constantly being added. Also, the humor in the game is great, yet still clean! Finally, the upgrading fee is one-time only, no subscriptions!

The bad:

There's no way to interact with other players, and you can't even transfer items or gold between the characters on your account. Also, Guardian upgrades must be purchased seperately for each character on your account A personal peeve of mine is that a lot of the in-game plotlines and even some promised classes have seemingly been abandoned by the developers.

Summary:

Gameplay: 9/10.
The gameplay is fun, but can sometimes get a little repetitive. Your fighting style does vary based on your class or armor, but basically it comes down to clicking "attack" or "spells" over and over again. That said, it is still very addictive and I personally never get bored playing. A note to all: grinding for gold and XP is absolutely unavoidable, and leveling is pretty slow once you get past level 80.

Graphics: 8/10.
This game runs on Flash Player, so everything is 2D. Most of the art is VERY well drawn, though, so it's worth it. Sometimes you run into a quest or monster t...

3.0

Not really worth it.

Summary:

Most quests have a decent storyline and often very humorous. "Humor" is sometimes cheesy. Some concepts are really hard to understand unless you're a die-hard fantasy fan (which I'm not). Lore that you're expected to know and 9 times out of 10, you don't know anything about it.

Fluctuating graphics quality. Some things look really well made; other things, such as creatures, weapons, armor, etc., look like crap and could have easily been made on MS Paint. Boring cutscenes. For the most part it's always just an exchange of dialogue and maybe a little bit of movement. On the rare occasion somet...

-Several Stories going on at once
-Never run out of things to do

Summary:

Adventure Quest is another one of those solid Web RPG's. This time, all you need is a web browser and the latest version of Flash Player. It's completely Free and still provides many areas of Exploration. For those who pay the $20.00, countless other things are unlocked. It's a good free game, but you unlock its potential by paying the 1-time-fee.

Gameplay 10/10

The gameplay is quite nice. You can't walk around, but you don't really need to. You start out in a Town, and you can go to a variety of places such as a Magic Shop, Pet Shop (which you can use to train and fight along side you) and t...

Adventure Quest

The good:

For a 2D RPG this is a surprisingly good game. The graphics are nice and smooth and you have the option of playing it on low, medium, or high graphics, which most sites won't do for you. Even for a turn-base game, the fights move quickly. And it's easy to get surprised by a new opponent coming out of nowhere. The weapons are cool, the extras are fun and the quests are epic. This game is definitely one to play.

The bad:

This, like most sites, allows for free accounts and free play. But to get the most out of the game you have to pay. Even with a free account you can still travel most of the map, participate in the wars, join a clan etc. But you can't enter the guardian tower and you can't get quite a few high level items. Plus there is a server for free accounts. This server is limited to how many people can play on it at a time. With a free account you might get stuck refreshing for a few hours just to get in the game. Since out of 10,000 people, 9,000 could be guardians, this system is hard for the free player.

Summary:

The really great thing about this site is the fact that to become a guardian you pay only once. This isn't a site where you have to pay a monthly fee. For only $19.99 I was able to become a guardian. In the long run, to make this game more fun this was a good deal. The enemies are truly original and some are pretty comical. Some are repulsive beyond belief. There are so many quests and different places to go it's hard to get bored. And of course there are always wars or battles going on. This game is fun to play. It's challenging, it's funny, it's horrifying, and it's constantly upda...

Adventure Quest

The good:

Well first off it's an RPG, an online RPG at that, it is surprisingly addictive even for a 17 year old like me. I have been playing for a while now and have been witness to what seems like an endless amount of updates, the Artix Entertainment team are truly hard working, creating more equipment and monsters every weak, (X-)Guardians get even more benefits, apart from getting a nice array of extra weapons, shields, armour etc, we get more quests and fun things to do! The graphics are amazing considering it is a Flash Animation product, the amount of time and effort that has been put into scripting this masterpiece is incredible! What used to be a Lunch-break game has seriously evolved into an ever-expanding quality game! Don't miss out RPGers!

The bad:

No game is perfect. Although Adventure Quest is good fun and admittedly addictive, it's limited in lifespan. How you ask? Well even though there are plenty of quests and things to buy and do, the monsters... can become, repetitive, although there are around 700+ monsters you will only meet certain monsters for a certain period of time, this is because of the leveling, you seldom meet the normal average Fire Zard once your level reaches the 80 boundary you only meet the Elite Zard's and Zard X3. I love this game but we need more things to do and the staff brings us that by working hard all week to bring us new quests, but these quests can only be done a few times before they become monotonous!

Summary:

1) 100's of weapons to choose from and they come in varieties of Melee, Ranged and Magic.
2) Spells, loads of them, look cool to cast and are great for monster slaying!
3) Armours are also wide in variety, including uber armours like Nightmare Plate and the now rare, Golden Armour.
4) Pets and Guests are fun and are almost essential to the game, making sure you have the right pets/guests for battle can make success that much easier!
5) Recently Items have been added, these great little add-ons can increase your stats and/or defences an example of this is the rare Amulet of Drakkonan, not only d...

3.0

The good:

Not very taxing on a dial up connection, good variety of equipment, and is humorous.

Can't interact with players during game.

The bad:

gets tedious too quickly, (X) guardian ship fee, small servers, can't hold enough equipment, you pay for stuff you win in quests.

Can't interact with players during game.

Summary:

Adventure Quest is an online rpg where you create your own character and participate in battles.

New users get 3 free play throughs and get to see a small part of the game, after this the servers are usually too full to play. after that you can pay a fee of $14.95 and get unlimited access

The game is played through turn based battles, which is actually fun if you play it only for a short time period however you feel no sense of progress and it gets very tedious, sadly this is one of the game's biggest weak points and drags it down because it's a core element.

The humor may evoke a chuckle at ...
