When is comes to Role Playing Games, Ragnarok is definitely one of the best. The first time you play this game you will be glad you did. Although the graphics may not be the greatest, the game play makes up for it. For starters you are given a choice between six classes. Each of the classes has their own unique skill along with their own strength and weaknesses.
The Sage, whose power is in the script having the ability to write scrolls. The Viking, whose power is being a master of weapons.
The Blacksmith, whose ability is forging weapons and armour. The Alchemist, whose power relies on brewing up mysterious potions. The Woodsman, whose power is in ranged weaponry. Finally the Conjurer, whose power is in illusionary magic. The game begins in a general starting section of the map.
This starting section will always have a shop building as part of it and the minimal level monsters to inhabit it, this feature allows for beginners to get a feel for the game. In relation to monsters, an excellent feature of this game is the range of different monsters. There are different monsters for almost every stage of your character development, as your character starts it is taking on wild dogs and bears where as it gets stronger
and stronger it is fighting dragons and the mighty undead. As the character develops, and this is my favourite feature, you are able to learn the ways of different classes every 10th level increase.
This gives the character the chance to be all-powerful and more enjoyable. The major quest is very creative and challenging. Its most impressive feature is the fact that there are multiple quests within the quest itself. With the quests in mind, as opposed to other games, you actually have to go to a vast amount of different places, from different dungeons, to different lands, with different environments and even different dimensions. For those who need a game comparison to visualize how the game play is, Rangnarok is similar to Nethack in game play.
When I played this game for the first time, I couldn't believe how good and addictive it was. So for those who can put aside the need for spectacular graphics, give Ragnarok a play. I promise you, the gameplay is worth it.
