The Sword of the New World: Granado Espada review

  • The artwork, the Baroque over-doneness
  • The user-friendly fighting syle
  • Player created faction battles
  • Vague, rarely helpful quest log
  • Lack of any chat or conversation
  • Bad organization of the inventory

SotNW is available online and in stores, with a relatively minimal monthly fee of $8.95, which offsets the present absence of its massively multiplayer community. But even though the game is a bit rough around the edges, Sword of the New World: Granado Espada oozes with quirky personality that will appeal to fans of Asian-born titles, presenting a visual mash-up of anime and Baroque influences. If the game's off-the-wall presentation has piqued your interest, you can sample the free version, (which has level cap of 20). Hopefully the social aspect of the game, which is currently lacking, will pick up as more gamers try it out.
