Sponsored Game Review: The Epic Might

October 9, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: The Epic Fight is an Android game that aims to capture everything that we love about MMORPG games, but deliver it a more mobile-friendly environment. It’s PvP (player-vs-player) combat as you take on all sorts of different monsters (over 100 of them in-game) while travelling throughout 50 different locations fulfilling over a thousand different quests. RPG fans that love to customize their characters will be happy to hear that there over 600 items that players can customize their characters with. With fully 3D graphics and lots of animations and effects to bring the combat to life, The Epic Might could very well be the MMO game that you’ve been waiting for on Android. Read on to see what we thought of it.

How it Works: To get started on your adventure, you’ll need to download The Epic Might from the Play Store. Sadly, there’s a second download once you’ve done that, but it didn’t take me long.

Once you have it up and running you’ll be asked to choose your race and your gender.

After you’ve chosen your race and such, you’ll be asked to go out and complete your first few quests. One think I liked straight away was the facial motion and detail here, it has its own style, but looked really good on my tablet.

The first few quests culminate in fighting a practice dummy, but it’s here you get a first taste of combat, which is essentially choosing whichever attack you want from the right-hand side of the display.

After you complete the first few quests, you’ll be given your first item.

Each time you level up, you’ll get access to new items, which will be nice for those big RPG fans looking for a mobile-focused experience.

When you reach the different towns and areas, you’ll be able to take on different quests from the quests menu and each one of them has a fairly interesting setup to them.

These quests normally take a familiar route, with you having to open up the hunt menu and select the enemy from a selection of nasties.

Then you’ll need to fight our friend the Toadstool, which is pretty similar to fighting anything else.

You can spend some of your money and complete quests using the store. here, you can purchase new armor to show off your character while playing online with others.

Of course, this is just the beginning and the real fun comes in playing online against other players online, in true PvP combat.

Oh, and don’t forget that there’s an online chat you can participate in as well.

Opinion: What the Epic Might tries to do is to create an incredibly accessible PvP MMO game for Android, and in many respects it does just that. I’m a big MMORPG player in my spare time and I could never think of playing something like Elder Scrolls Online on my phone or tablet. This on the other end, manages to capture so much of what we love about those games and make them accessible to players on the move. However, everything sort of gets a little precedural after a while, you hit the quests menu, then fight an enemy or purchase an item, come back and then rinse and repeat. Of course, playing online with others does make this a lot more fun, but even still I wish the combat was a little more exciting. Still, this is the most fun I have had with this sort of game on my tablet in a long time, if only there was a little less repetition involved I’d find things much more fun.

Ratings

  • Speed (4/5) – The game runs just fine, with little in the way of hiccups or loading times.
  • Features (4/5) – Everything is really accessible for users on a smartphone or tablet, and there’s a lot of items and quests on offer here, but things can get quite repetitive after a long time playing.
  • Theme (4.5/5) – With some great-looking 3D graphics, Epic Might has some of the best RPG graphics I’ve seen in a game like this and the animation as well as the battle effects are nice touches.
  • Overall (4.5/5) – For MMORPG enthusiasts, this is a nice mobile game that’s really quite accessible, however with tasks becoming fairly repetitive after a while there’s work to be done.

Pros

  • Works well on smartphones as well as tablets, making this a game you can sit down with for hours or play on the move.
  • Lots of items, quests, monsters and weapons to collect and customize your character with.
  • Combat is accessible and the animations are nice to watch.
  • Epic Might is easy for people to play on the move, rather than having to spend ages travelling to get somewhere, you can just pick it up and do some quests.

Cons

  • Can become somewhat repetitive after some time of playing.
  • Combat is easy, but some extra controls or quicktime events would help liven things up.

Conclusion: if you’re looking for an MMORPG to play on the go that’s easy to do so while on the move, and doesn’t take up anywhere near as much time, then you’ve come to the right place. It might get a little repetitive after a while, but there’s a lot on offer here, with a lot to do. I like that the quests are introduced with detailed intros just as they would be on a real MMORPG and the graphics are really quite good. Overall, this is a game that’s accessible, has more depth to it than you think and will satisfy the customization RPG fans look for in a game. The PvP combat is particularly fun against real online players and it’s a good package all around.
