This week we review the new free to play MMORPG from Perfect World Entertainment, Swordsman.
This epic MMO is inspired by the novels of Louis Cha and is set in the Ming Dynasty. We talk about avatar development, graphics, gameplay, Group play, story and the game interface.
We received copies of the Heroes Pack from Perfect World which included a mount that looks like a fiery dragon and lots of other little goodies.
We wrap up the show with another set of summer game recommendations. Have you played Swordsman? We would love to chat with you if you’ve played the game at the higher levels.
To play Swordsman, download Arc here.
