Topic: Dream World / My Opinion

The only reason I kept playing is because I’m a completionist. I love getting the badges ;) If you play a bad game, you’re still entitled to bitch about how bad it is. In fact, you’re MORE entitled to it if you’ve gone through and beaten the whole thing.

Oh god, I FINALLY beat it. This game is a tremendous waste of time. The only reason I played this game past the first level was my drive to get those badges, and the fact that I refused to let this game beat me.
The “energy” system is atrocious. It just forces players to leave the game every few minutes and come back later. I can’t think of a single commercial game that actually MAKES you stop playing.
The graphics are absolutely atrocious; the fact that they’re attempting to upgrade it piecemeal only serves to make it more awkward, as a few images actually have decent skill in them, like the phoenix ally, while others still look like a kindergartner drew them, like the dragon ally.
The complete lack of any sound or music makes it incredibly boring as well. I’d run Hulu in the background and watch THAT, except that doing so makes the skill bar skip.
The puzzles are obnoxious; they’re a good idea at first, but they’re the EXACT SAME THINGS the entire game through! The stupid chest sounds like it’s got a crippling fear of aging; “How young will I be in 85 years?” Cash and experience are great, but couldn’t we get something better than elementary algebra? I never even bothered trying the Wise Man’s trivia after the first few tries, since the questions are so esoteric, and the answers are wrong more often than not!
The worst part, though, is the obscene amount of GRIND this is! All you do is click the attack button, and occasionally use a skill! No sound, no music, not even an animation beyond the skill bar scrolling! It’s okay at the earlier levels, but by the time you get to thirty or forty, the amount of fighting you have to do is INSANE! I’ve been playing this thing every day since it first came out, and I only got past level fifty NOW.
In conclusion, the game is dull, the art is haphazard and shoddy, the puzzles are elementary and annoying, and it’s more grind than I’ve seen in Guild Wars and World of Warcraft COMBINED. It’s not even a decent time-waster, since it forces you off the game for hours at a time! Despite the fact that they try to use this awful game to try and make money with their “gems”, it’s not worth a single red cent.
