Default World of Kung Fu - (Revised with Game Review)

World of Kung Fu.

Name: World of Kung Fu
Genre: Chinese Historical/Fantasy
Style: MMO RPG
Combat Style: Auto-attack with abilities
Learning Curve: Simple but moves into complex - as the avenues and quest lines are deep. Some classes are harder to play than others. EG. Fan = Healer is possibly the hardest style to play. I would choose a spear or staff for starters as they can attack multiple mobs at a time.
Crafting: balanced - although some crafting seems obsolete.
PVP: At lvl 20 in most places PVP is forced ie. available. . I have found it uncommon - It's not hard to call upon a non-pvp higher person who will come and hunt them down for the pvp points. PVP players names change so they stick out like a soar thumb.
Role-Playing: voluntary
Leveling style: Level based
Server Pop: moderate
Stability: Have found the game in general very stable. No glitches.

Immersion: 7/10
Graphic Quality: 7/10
Sound Quality: 5/10
Content Quality: 9/10
Overall Rating: 8/10

Brief Description: This is a game with very rich quest lines, a fairly good although sometimes unbalanced PVP system. The weekly and daily events can be fun and interesting and a good escape from the battle side of the game.

Other Comments: Some people do not like the system of gaining xp while not actually playing the game. I however like the system that WOKF has introduced. You are given an amount of points for being in the game and playing. More points for lvling etc. To spend those points you go to a zone and spend those points - you can do this both online and offline however you get half the xp when offline. I'm a fairly casual player but can leave my computer on so this works for me.

You lvl in WOKF faster than other MMO's I have played which is a great incentive. Although there are a couple of "lvl's" that seem a bit harder than others to get through.

The Dev's and GM's seem to have thier hands still fairly involved in this game with monthly to quarterly updates and still introducing new servers 2 years after the game has been active.

In my opinion you can play WOKF without buying from the item mall - however I have spent money on mounts, and looting pets.

Payment options: Completely free with an item mall in the game.
Download Size: 1.1Gig

Current People Playing.

1. Tilce - US west - Emerald Tiger - Main 44 Staff Thumps Alt 44 Sword Tilce (both usually online)
2. HenriDeacon - US west - 9 Hammer and Axe
3. Imfir

Interesting, never heard of this game. I looked at some screenshots and I like the skill effects.
Looking forward to reading your review.

The ideas the name conjurs to me made me not interested - but then I saw the trailer and the cute tongue in check anime approach, and I became interested

I liked the small client download (about 1 gb), and it was patched within a few seconds.

Downloading now.
It's on a slow mirror so I'll let it go while I'm at work and give it a go when I get home.
I'll see you online eventually Tilce.

For anyone wishing to download World Of KungFu I recommend using the orbit downloader.
The best speed I could get from the 4 mirrors provided at the WOKF website was 189 kps but using the downloader I get 420 kps which is full speed for me.
To use the downloader simply install,open the program,click "new" and paste in the download linky....simple as that.

Jimmy has also let me know that he currently cannot see the US west Server. (Emerald Tiger) I'm trying to contact tech support about this as if he can't see it... then there's possibility that everone else can't. which means they may have locked the server for newcomers. If that's the case... I will be seeing If i can get my accounts moved. LOL.sigh


*********
Resolved... you just have to exit and run the client again.
