A fun and casual MMORPG
This game is a free to play MMORPG, that allows its players to dungeon crawl one minute, and play minigames the next. This game is super forgiving and has one of the most interesting characters skill trees out there.
The sequel every maplestory player needs to play
In addition to questing players can play minigames, engage in a battle royale, or harvest resources, making MapleStory 2 the perfect blend between Fortnite, Runescape, and arcade games.
Released more than ten years after the original, MapleStory 2 is a refreshing take on a timeless classic. In this MMORPG users choose one of eleven classes and can either play through the main story, or go and do any number of side quests. This game adds a level of replayability because the main questline is so fun. Users have found the main quest to be the best way to farm experience.
This main quest takes about 15 to 20 hours to complete, which is very short for an MMO. There is a level cap at 50. However, once the max level is reached, players can earn prestige, which is additional levels past 50. There are a total of 100 prestige levels. Also, there are a variety of minigames and skills that can be worked on, outside of the combat-related skills. Some of the noncombat activities include mining, crafting, clothing design, and fishing. There are a total of 11 minigames in MapleStory 2; four are guild specific, and the other seven are open to all players.
One of the most interesting additions to this game, when compared to the original, is a battle royal mode. In this frenzy, up to 50 people compete to be the last man standing, and there are loot crates to help you win. The winner receives cosmetic items for their avatar.
Where can you run this program?
Currently this game is only on PC, but MapleStory M is a mobile version of the original game.
Is there a better alternative?
No. There are alternatives, but it's hard to rank MMORPGs against each other because they all have their pros and cons. Lunaria Story, The World of Magic, and Flyff are all MMOs that are similar to Maplestory 2.
Maplestory 2 is good for people looking for a casual multiplayer game to play. What makes it different from other easy to play MMOs is the artwork and minigames.
Should you download it?
Yes. It's a very well developed game and, since it was released in October of 2018, there are still new features and content added regularly. This helps keep the game fresh.
