About MapleStory

MapleStory is an online game that uses a side-scroll format, which is entirely different from the 3-D or quarter-view formats that are prevalent in most games. It allows you to jump or climb ladders, emphasizes arcade-like dynamic to the game play, and doesn't have confusing perspective transitions so it's easily approachable for anyone to play.

System Requirements

  • Operating System: Windows 98ME/2000/XP
  • CPU: Pentium 3 1GHz
  • Hard Drive: 1.5 GB
  • Memory (RAM): 128 MB
  • Graphics: 3D Aceleration

I played this game when it was just out, and the grind was horrible like, I have never played a character over level 50.

Flashforward like 5 years, the beginning curve is a lot smoother, and you don't have to roll 50000000 times to get that 4 4 x x stats you've always wanted.

This game is always improving, and there's nothing wrong if you go with big headed and small bodied cute characters.

MapleStory, a couple of years ago, deserved at least a B or higher. Now, C is too high. All there is to MapleStory now is the Cash Shop. "*insert question*? Get some NX today!". Yes, that slogan is all over the official site now. However, the new Big Bang (revamp of MapleStory) is supposedly going to change everything. Hope it saves the game because right now it's all about cash. Not to mention all the glitches that allow players to glitch their equips to the hax.

@Momijii: I agree, cash didn't provide a major advantage
-- until recently. The new system on the equips, "The Potential". To actually get good stats on your potentials, burn cash on NX and buy the so called "Miracle Cubes". Got trouble scrolling? No problem, spend $20 each slot on your weapon to make it perfect.

To say that the game doesn't give money-spenders a major advantage is wrong. But I would've agreed with you 2 years ago, before Gacha was released. As for now, the game is soon going to be p2p, if not already. It's impossible to keep up if you don't spend money on the game. And tons of it.

My rating: C- to D

A prosperous game in the beginning, now? It's rolling downhill. If Nexon didn't be so cash-minded, and the grind level drops, more action, this would be a successful game. Not to mention the horrendous community there who screams leech parties blah blah, hackers and hardly any GM online. Speaking from a MapleSEA's view. Not recommended for childrens although it's user friendly, the community destroys everything.

Very addictive game, once you get hooked, hard to let off. To quit, you gotta be hooked to something else instead of MapleSEA, like be an extrovert and go out with friends, etc.

When you hear MapleStory, one of the first words that instantly comes to mind is "fail." However, this is not the case.
While MapleStory's Community, Economy, and Grind are not very lovely, overall the game is addicting and fun. They release new content rather regularly, and the Cash Shop does not provide major advantages (biggest advantage would be the cash), compared to some games.
Overall, MapleStory deserves a B+.

My true first MMORPG. Really addicting in the beginning, but then the never-ending grinding kills you :X Atleast the graphics are great :D

For the casual gamer this game may be a lot of fun, but this game will turn that casual gamer into a hardcore gamer. The amount of time required to level a single character is horrendous. From 3 years of playing this game, I have to say that the time it takes to do anything in the game is much too long than it should be. Also nowadays it's heavily cash shop based and a new comer will get completely lost due to lack of knowledge, in game currency and friends.

Despite being one of the most laughed at games online, MS truly is a good game. Horrendously addicting, everyone who has played it will usually say two things; the grinding sucks, but the game is addictive.

Same as Mitchi, after MS, I found it hard to play point and click games - eventually I did, though.

I must say, putting aside the leveling difficulties and stuff, this game is pretty solid. I never actually saw the GMs or anything, but that doesn't mean they do a crappy job. Material/Content is released at a good pace and you always have something to look ahead to. This would be considered the foundation MMO for a lot of people (well, for my friends and me anyways). Definitely recommend it if you have spare time every now and then ^_^

Kebin - 11-13-2009

Honestly, great looking game with easy game mechanics, music is very soothing to the ears, an average community in terms of people you would like and people you would hate, horrible grind, but easily addictive. Great game for shorts bursts of play over a long period of time.
