Monster Forest Online: Can You Catch Them All?

By Daniel Owens
To better my writing skills and establish a presence in the MMO gaming community are the passions that bring me here, I enjoy writing about new and upcoming MMO's. My goal is to bring to the reader as many promising MMO's as I can find. Offering insight and advice on what's worth playing.

Nineyou Information Technology is currently developing a new MMO (Published by AsiaSoft) titled Monster Forest Online. MFO as we will refer to it from here on in, is a 3D MMORPG in which a player must venture out into the world to collect pets and train them to become exceptional fighters. Whilst accomplishing this task players are also given the ability to own their own land in which they can run a farm and start up a café, this is the Miniland System.

I received my login details for the Alpha Preview Test expecting what most people would expect out of a client that's in alpha stages, a buggy thrown together world where there's not much to do beyond the foundations of the game. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Nineyou have done a fantastic job of providing a very polished preview. I haven't had any major problems so far and I am to say the least, very impressed.

Graphics

MFO boasts anime style graphics, while not next-gen in any sense the game is portrayed in a colourful and vibrant world that will distract you from the fact that the graphics are a little outdated. This also means MFO can be run on lower end machines for those players who haven't got the money for the latest and greatest in hardware.

Gameplay

The player begins by creating their character and picking a starter pet. Characters within MFO are completely cosmetic and their level has no effect on how well you will do within the world, leveling your pets is the main focus. Once entering the world you are presented with the standardized tutorial, MFO has a very simple, yet helpful tutorial that will be of great benefit to any newcomers to the MMO community. One of the first things that made me cheer for joy was the fact that while point-and-click movement is available, you can also move with WASD. Solely point-and-click MMO's should be illegal, so MFO gets a point for not falling into this trend.

After completing the tutorial you will be pointed in the direction of the main focus of the game, questing and leveling your pet/s.
