Steparu has posted a brief look at Korean MMO Record of Lodoss War Online, which he calls a “classical MMORPG.” His impressions aren’t overly favorable, but he has uploaded a gameplay video that will give you an idea of what the title is all about.

The footage was captured in the game’s first closed beta test. Click past the cut to have a look!

Observer98  … and you make that comment here, with one of perhaps the most reasonable sounding names among Korean games, based on an IP that has had decent success in the past here in the West?  *I’d understand on many another thread, but ROLW is pretty well known.*

What is it with the names of these Korean games?  I have to admit when I see seemingly nonsensical phrases as names, I figure the game isn’t exactly oriented towards Western players.

Crow God But Sword World doesn’t have the same level of name recognition. Also probably why Middle-Earth Online was changed to Lord of the Rings Online.

I’d rather find the TableTop RPG rules for Lodoss and play that instead

Wow, that looks really bad.

I wish they made an mmo of Sword Art Online. Or one of my new favorites “Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon?”

So we have some boars, a girl that can kick some serious a… , some npc that follows you around and arrows that quide you in the game.

Yup, not for me.

Yea that changed a lot too. You can hit max level easily solo. Also if you’re super impatient they implemented a “Fast Track Server” (FTS) up to level 55 so you can level even faster lol.

Looks very much inspired from the Dreamcast game.

This does look dreadfully boring, but I’ll assume it’s because it’s a low level character. Also, shouldn’t they be marketing this as a Sword World MMO? Record of Lodoss War is just a story focused around Parn, Deedlit, and their fellow adventurers. Unless their plan is to follow said adventurers on their adventurer which…that’s kind of boring (might as well just go watch the cartoon).

Dystopiq Not surprisingly, L1 is a giant in Korea! Great gameplay, great PvP, great Crafting, great story! The n1 MMORPG in Korea – even after 17 years!
