Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
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.
Pro Includes a fully voice-acted solo story
Pro Great Hearthstone alternative
Want something like Hearthstone but not Hearthstone?
Pro Generous with free packs
Playing the solo stories, completing missions, and login events reward you with lots of tickets that can be exchanged one-for-one for booster packs.
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.
