One of the reasons for Elsword’s surge in popularity is thanks to its unique game design. Released in 2007 and featuring excellent MMO gameplay with a focus on skills and combat, Elsword is a side scrolling game that combines both 3D and 2D to create one of the most impressive 2.5 D games that we’ve played.
The gameplay mechanics in Elsword will be familiar to MMORPG fans. They have a large emphasis on skill and when in combat you must rely on precise timing to deliver combos of hits. This creates a skills based gameplay which is far more engaging and enjoyable than the combat seen in most MMORPGs. It allows you to build your skills and to rely on your gameplay precision rather than being at the mercy of stats and figures.
