MMORPG.com's Phil Bickle spent some time in the open beta of the anime-themed MMO Remnant Knights and offers his thoughts on the rather interesting experience.
A school setting is nothing new for anime but for an MMO, it is rather unique. Yet with the anime style Remnant Knights employs the entire game feels strangely familiar. It's really hard to put the feel of the game into perspective. On the one hand I feel like as a viewer that I’ve been in enough anime schools that nothing will come as a surprise. On the other hand, this is the first time I’ve ever really been inside an anime school as a player. Flamboyant male teachers, emotionless class reps, a mystical power messing up everyone’s day. Every trope seems to be in check right from the moment you log in and get your first quest. It does feel strange to be told why you are in a school dedicated to fighting monsters, but I guess exposition has to come somehow and having it poured over your head the moment you walk up to your headmaster is as good as any.
