Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Gameplay style & hybidization
Tons of control over playstyle and can hybridizedyour character quite a bit. The leaning tree allows for complete control over progression and specialization.
Pro Players have a larger role in the economy than is typical
Players can purchase tiles in cities, and they can build items like smelters. You can use other player's equipment, but you will have to pay a fee to that player. You can also buy your own private island, and farm and use it as you wish.
Pro Play with friends on different operating systems
Instead of simply tweaking the game to work on mobile, in AdventureQuest 3D you can actually play with others on different operating systems - you can be on your phone, and your friend on a desktop computer while you both raid together.
Pro Flexible class sytem
There are 4 classes available - warrior, mage, rogue, and guardian. You can swap between them at any time (as long as you are out of combat).
Pro Fun writing style
The first character you meet in the open beta is Zorbak who sortof looks like an evil mouse. Some of the first dialogue you see goes like this:
[Zorbak] POP Quiz! What's worse than a zombie eating your entire family?
[You] WHAT!? Nothing is worse than that...
[Zorbak] Oh yes there is! Tutorials! I Freaking hate tutorials!!! You know...the kind that force you to click the things for like the entire first hour of game play. Spits. But - good news! I found the guy responsible for making THOSE kind of tutorials...meh heh...
[You] You did?
[Zorbak] Yup. Found him, and pushed him right into that undead army's path.
[Zorbak] I know. I know. No need for thanks.
It's expensive for a game that was going to be free to play!
Con PC has a large advantage over Mobile
Depending on the power of your mobile device, you could be at a severe disadvantage when it comes to any sort of player vs player interaction. Moreso, PC users will have easier access to everything including spells and abilities (binding keyboard keys is a much better system than floating buttons on a cramped mobile screen).
Con Sandbox character progression now controlled
Though the lyout has opportunity for progressionless open char developement......the developers have organized the game to push all players into high end pvp zones and join large guilds for any hope of accessing game content.
Con Gameworld size/content and instances
The game world at release is very small and has killed exploration. Instances that were once frowned upon now a.re a core aspect of the game.
Con Beta version isn't complete
While some games have a very polished beta, there are still some rough edges in AdventureQuest 3D. Things aren't explained very well, and there doesn't seem to be a map yet. There isn't a way to adjust the camera sensitivity either.
Con Poor interface
The inventory is a scroll-through list that covers half the screen and takes a very long time to sort through.
Con Mobile compatibility holds back the graphics
While the figures and settings look nice, it does look like a mobile game even when on PC. There are many, many games with significantly better graphics. Figures look slightly blocky, and color gradients aren't always smooth.
