Risk Your Life Review at GameSpot

Posted Wed, Jul 13, 2005 by Boomjack

RYL bad apparently. You can win $1 million though.
GameSpot has reviewed Risk Your Life. The Bare Naked Ladies wrote "If I had a million dollars", but not this:

"What the player-versus-environment game does provide are scores of critters and creatures of steadily climbing strength for you to carve through as you go. You won't have any indication of how strong a monster is, relative to you, until you actually go up and hit it, though the creatures move slowly enough that you can usually run away from them (or right past them) fairly easily. However, most of the time you'll just need to find the strongest foe you can dispatch comfortably and grind patiently away until you've leveled up and can move over a little bit to attack the next-strongest foe. The game supports both a mouse-based (click to move) and a keyboard-based (WASD and mouse-look) system of movement; both movement systems feel sluggish and imprecise, though this weakness fortunately doesn't extend to the combat."

Is the $1 Million tournament Rylly over? MMORPG.com has posted a RYL: Path of the Emperor Interview featuring Mark Politi and discussing the suspension of the $1,000,000 tournament. Richard Simmons informed us that he did not cheat in the RYL tournament and that the following statement was 100% true:

"Mark Politi of Planetwide Games took a few moments to answer our questions in light of recent staff departures, the suspension of their $1,000,000 tournament, and some very damning reviews."

Risk Your Life, and apparently your wallet if you buy this one. GamingAge has posted a review of Risk Your Life: Path of the Emperor. Can $1,000.000 in prize money and sexy booth babes save this game? We have no idea, but we do know that they maybe wrote this, possibly:

" And finally we get to the lovely R.Y.L. community. Asking for help in the chat pane will usually get you one of two responses; ‘ghey’ or ‘n00b’. In fact, the chat pane usually reads like a fourteen year old’s IM conversation, with a moderator popping in every few minutes to say some thing along the lines of ‘hey, stop that or I’ll ban you’ and then leaving again. "

Ryl Bad The Entertainment Depot or TED as we like to call it, has reviewed RYL: Path of the Emperor. Tiger Woods pumped his fist in the air, pointed to our camera and said:

" One of the latest in the ever expanding MMORPG genre is Gamasoft and Youxiland’s RYL: Path of the Emperor, a traditional and skill-based title that allows for players to rise through the ranks and rule the lands.  Set in the territory known as The Almighty Ground, the game starts you in the middle of a struggle between several factions, any of which you can side with: the Kartefant Nation (Human), Merkhadia nations (Ak’Kan), or God’s Pirates (a group of Human and Ak’Kan that seek peaceful coexistence). The troubled history of both peoples is coming to the surface as an influential Ak’Kan leader goes missing in search of the land’s power.  Your journey begins as the looming threat of strife grips the land, allowing for not only disaster but also for one to rise to power. "
