I've been playing this for a couple days now, so I feel like I can make a rather decent review.

1. Imagery: Visuals are nice. Everything seems to fit together smoothly. I have yet to come across any area that appears to be missing a background, experiencing graphical errors, etc. so I give this five out of five.

2. Battling: Smooth animations, which is nice, but I find it irritating that you simply set a couple skills and then watch how it plays out. It would be more enjoyable if this section involving more interaction, such as picking a skill you wanted to use, have potions to heal yourself when injured or increase the rage meter, etc. It's not terrible, but it's not a lot of fun just watching your character and enemies running back and forth at each other while you just sit there waiting for it to be done with. I give this bit three out of five.

3. Communicating: I've noticed that if you want to send a message out to "all" or "world", you need to have a certain item to do so; this limits me to only being able to speak to a team I might be in when I don't have said item, and I find this rather frustrating. A consumable item should not be needed to speak to others; this heavily limits people from being able to talk to one another in-game, and the only way to get more of this item is to either win them via quests and battles or buy them with gold (real money). It seems like an unnecessary annoyance that just makes the game agitating. One out of five on this one.

4. VIP: Players who become VIP become way too over powered, and this ruins the game for non-VIP members. I understand that people who pay real money get a bit extra, but during events things become terribly frustrating and unfair when you're facing a team full of buffed-up VIP members. Also, as a non-VIP member myself, I find it annoying that the Quest bar still notifies me of having completed a VIP quest, as I cannot claim the reward due to not being a VIP member; players who are not VIP members should not be seeing these VIP exclusive quests or capable of completing them, as they cannot be claimed and soon become an annoyance on the screen. I give this two out of five.

5. Wings: One of the main reason VIP players are so powerful are because of wings they purchased; this is fine, as they paid for it, but perhaps there should be a way for free players to gain wings as well. I'm not certain if there is already and I have simply missed it, such as needing to be a certain level, but it's a suggestion to help even the plain between VIP members and free players.

That...is everything so far, I think. It's not a bad game by any means, but there is certainly a lot of room for improvement. I would still recommend this game to others as something to give a try, and it probably is more fun with friends (I wouldn't know, I have no friends playing it =u=) but I really hope some of my opinions are at least mulled over. I'm sure there are plenty of ways to make this game more enjoyable for all players, and I will keep playing it to see how it develops and hopefully watch it improve over time.

All-in-all, two and a half out of five stars; decent game, but still lacking a lot of enjoyable elements.

it's a good game,like the idea of dragons as partners,but something that they should do is to free players have a way to gain wings....
