MU Legend is a next-generation action MMORPG, a PC title released on Steam on the 7th August 2018. The team behind the game are known as Webzen, the guys who were also behind the original MU Online, MU Origin, Flyff, and Age of Wushu, just to name a few. Using time travel as a plot device, the player must go back in time to prevent a character from effectively destroying the world once again – since he nearly got the chance to do it in the first place.

The Game Review
At the start of the game, the player takes on the role of trying to defeat a great Kundun, an ancient evil that is set to destroy the world. Working with a fellow named Icarus, the player attempts to prevent Kundun from destroying the world by being plunged back into the past to try and prevent Kundun from ever reaching this point in history. That’s the brief gist of the story, but as the player plays through the game, they’ll get more information through quests and general lore additions.
Just like any other action MMORPG, MU Legend plays a lot like something like Diablo 3 or Path of Exile. When it comes to the controls it revolves around the player left-clicking where they want to go, and then using a hot-bar of abilities to cast a number of spells or skills to destroy a large array of enemies. Throughout many areas of the game, the player always has a lot of enemies to focus on, so the game makes sure that the player has plenty of access to AOE skills and abilities, making for a much more explosive and impactful style of combat throughout. When leveling up, the player can gain new skills, increase their overall strength, wear better gear, and even place crests on their skills, giving them small stat bonuses depending on the crest chosen.
In the game, there are a number of different quests and dungeons that will give the player loot, items, and gear to use, however they see fit. Other than swapping out their gear to improve, players can also gain access to a pet that can grow and become stronger through leveling up with the player. While this pet doesn’t attack, it does provide some big stat bonuses, allowing for the option to switch out different pets when creating a different build. Mounts are also available to the player, as there is a lot of exploring to be done, rather than lots of instances, so to break up the monotony of moving at such a slow pace, players can acquire different mounts to increase their overall speed.
In terms of comparisons, Path of Exile and Diablo 3 are clearly inspirations for this game. The developers have pulled a number of ideas from their original two MU titles, but a lot of the combat and gameplay mechanics have been seen done before from both of these two games, making for an even strong action MMORPG.
Anyone that enjoyed the original MU titles, Path of Exile, or Diablo 1, 2, and 3, they are going to find a lot to enjoy with this game. It has a lot to offer, with strong, addictive gameplay, and is a great excuse to play for a few hours each day and to get some new loot.
