-GAMES (MMORPG)- MapleStory Review

Hey guys! Here comes another review, which is about a game called MapleStory!

MapleStory is a Free-to-Play MMORPG published by Nexon. It is a fun, 2D side-scrolling with cute cartoony graphics, which are chibby/anime-ish. It is also one of the most popular Free-to-Play MMORPGs because of it's massive community!

Players start in Maple Island, which is the tutorial area of the game, and you start as a classless novice learning the aspects of the game and its "feel". The only downside of the game is that it is a grindfest, where you must kill monsters again and again to gain experience. But for you to have a fun grinding, try playing with a friend. It is also fun to grind alone.

The quests in MapleStory are also fun because of it's side-scrolling genre, like a platform game that involves jumping from platform to platform. Another thing about the quests are the Party Quests or commonly known as PQs, which commonly have a series of puzzles that the party must solve by cooperating with one another or sometimes by killing as many monsters in a certain amount of time. PQs probably changed the 'grindfest' concept of the game.

Oh, and another thing about the game is that it is always updated ever since it was released; compared to the early days of MapleStory, the world was very small with only one landmass called Victoria Island. Today, MapleStory already has new classes with a more massive world. If you like games which are always updated and never gets old, this is a game for you!
