Maplestory, a game with friends and mmo fun.

4.0Overall

Maplestory in summary is a free online mmo made by nexon. A place where you can talk to friends, and kill monsters to level up, become stronger and compete. Maplestory can become really repetitive in nature, you will end up doing the same things over and over again to level up. Overall it is a really addicting game. The game is funner if you have friends to talk to. Join up in a guild to play with lots of friends at the same time. You can also trade items, and be a merchant to make tons of in game money, called mesos.

Maplestory has a fun way of chatting with others. You can whisper to different people, and talk in party, buddy, family, spouse ( you can get married in game) or guild. You can use emoticon faces, to make chatting funner and more expressive. Your avatar will change faces in game.

Maplestory is filled with adventure and action. You might want to try this one, it deserves recognition

A solid MMORPG : Maplestory

Maplestory is generally a game made by Nexon/Wizet. And is one of the most loved games in the internet.
With over 30 million players, it's no wonder why Nexon is successful with their business.
Storyline
For the most part, it's storyline differs in the jobs you choose to play with.
For example, explorers have no storyline whatsoever, while the legend or even the new dualblade class
revolves around defeating the bad guy, or revenge.
Graphics
The graphics are surprisingly pretty clean, and weapon and sprite designs are creative.
I have yet to find a flaw with the graphics, except to the part where some of the sprites or npcs in towns block some part of the town,
rendering new players confused as to where the platforms are(To my experience of course).
Music
The music is great, while some rather listen to their iTunes or iPod while playing, the ost of maplestory is great.
Although not fitting the mood for killing monsters for hours, it rather fits the mood of the map, which can give a mixed experience.
I have found the music of Maplestory to be great, and many others have as well.
Replayability
It's the problem with most maplers trying to quit. One even tried to make the gm ban her so she could focus on school.
Most maplers, after trying to vow that they would quit, come right back, as almost forced to. The replayability is great,
mostly because Wizet/Nexon tries to bring out new classes every year. So the variety is great, although most of the new classes need nx, or money to get more powerful in terms of skills, which MANY consider a turn-off.
Gameplay
The gameplay is what you would expect in most mmorpgs, a huge grindfest, although Nexon/Wizet seems pretty intent on
destroying the grindfest by reducing all the exp needed to level by 50% in the Big Bang patch.

While the community can vary per world, it is a generally okay community, with
, nice guys and generally average guys, not to mention somewhat idiotic people and people who get mad over nothing.
But what amazes me the most in the game, is that Maplestory has it's own economy, with nx to meso rates, and many others.
Maplestory's economy reflects real life, in many ways than one. And it amazes me that most people who partake in mechanting, or selling and buying, actually memorized all the prices to heart.
Overall
Overall, it's a very solid game, with a okay community, okay graphics, amazing gameplay, and great OSTs.
I recommend this game for anyone bored. But do not blame me if you rage over Wizet's/Nexon's mistakes.
