Ragnorok is one of the few games that offers a lot of customization for it’s sprite based characters and tons of exploration and monster killing to be had.
Yet, unlike being a normal player on a Ragnorok server, you step into the role of a fictional player named Ales as he sets search for adventure with the goal of eventually starting his own Guild. It is not long before this young rookie adventurer is propelled down a path toward danger, excitement, and a heroine in distress. Throughout his travels Ales encounters individuals who help in his quest for fortune and fame, as these friends will become invaluable new allies as they join his party.
Like all MMO RPG’s there is tons of customize to be had on your characters to best suit your playing style. As you are able to choose from a number of different basic job classes such as Swordsman, Thief, and Merchant, eventually progressing towards more advanced job classes such as Knight, Assassin, and Blacksmith. Staying true to the community and teamwork that the original is based on, Ragnarok DS allows players to team up with two other friends wirelessly via Nintendo DS Wireless Connection or Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to take on the Mirage Tower, which has 50 floors with randomly generated maps and completion conditions, with the chance to obtain rare items.
An interesting DS game to say the least.
