Ragnarok M: Eternal Love is a mobile version of extremely popular Ragnarok Online game and is actually one of many mobile adaptations and it certainly won’t be the last. This MMORPG just got its English version on the Play Store although the game was already available in Asia for a while now. The game is available for both iOS and Android devices for free and it is really a charming and fun title to play.
Ragnarok Online has eight mobile games so far with Ragnarok M: Eternal Love being the latest. The main game has been present since 2002 and its fame is not fading any time soon. This also means that every adaptation is measured to the original although the platforms are different and smartphones only attracted new generations of players over the years.
Since Ragnarok Online was made more than a decade and a half ago, the new games tend to look better. This is exactly the case with Ragnarok M: Eternal Love. Moreover, this may be the best looking game from the franchise so far. Another big plus for Ragnarok M: Eternal Love is that it is true to the original so much that you can freely call it a remake, only with better graphics.
What many fans of Ragnarok Online are probably thinking right now is if the music is as great as it was in Ragnarok Online. Back then, each city had its own song and you will often hear fans praising the original soundtrack. Well, Ragnarok M: Eternal Love also delivered amazing music which is another thing it has in common with the original game. You can even use a jukebox in the game to play a song and enjoy some great music.
When it comes to combat, many were worried that Auto Play will ruin the gameplay, like it already happened with other titles. But here, this is actually quite a useful feature and the developer made sure it will not create boring gameplay and thus chase the players away. Namely, you can decide when to use it and also you will have to rely on your controlling skills during co-ops and MVP fights. AutoPlay allows you to make interventions or you can simply let it do its thing. In general, the combat system is friendly to all the players even the new ones and is quite similar to the Ragnarok Online mechanism. Of course, the controls are different and changed since the game crossed platforms but the overall concept is the same.
Now, there is an in-game currency which can be off-putting a little, like all microtransactions tend to be. Other than that, the economic system in the game is pretty neat. Players can’t trade directly, but they need to do it via so-called Exchange NPC which is similar to the marketplace. This way, it’s the system that determines the price and not the players.
All in all, this is a quality game that will appeal to both Ragnarok Online fans and new players. Ragnarok M: Eternal Love is a polished version of the original, but it also is new in its own way. Just make sure to listen to the music since it will make the whole experience richer and more exciting.
