Game Description and Comments
Dark and Light is a recently launched fantasy MMORPG that bills itself as “The Largest Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game (MMORPG) you’ve ever seen!” The reason for this claim is that the game’s playing world consists of over 15000 square-miles of land. In addition the game has no zones and no loading times so all the players exist in the same world at once. Don’t worry about footing it to every location because the game uses a warping system and a interesting transportation system that allows you to fly in many cool ways such as on the back of a dragon! The interesting concepts do not stop with the size of the world or the transportation system as Dark and Light also offers a fairly different pricing model (discussed below) a strong focus on the social aspect of the game and crafting experience points. In fact some of the concepts such as having no zones and focusing on social interactivity make this game very different from the MMORPG juggernaut World or Warcraft. Only time will tell if Dark and Light can deliver on its considerable potential though.

Comment: Better than most pay-to-play RPGs.
Comment: I think its great to play in large areas and have the opportunity to discover a big world. Still I hope graphics and gameplay wont be too bad. Graphics for sure because its difficult to show such a big world in such beauty. I give it an 8.
Comment: A transportation system sounds cool.
Dark and Light has very two different pricing models. The Master Subscription is $14.99 per month and allows unlimited play without any restrictions. The Freedom Card method bypasses the monthly fee for $14.99 but players lose access to some features and are charged credits for a few others.
