RYL Good or RYL Bad?
The Gamers' Temple has posted a review of RYL: Path of the Emperor. Good or bad, you can win $1 million:
"The graphics in RYL: Path of the Emperor are fair to good. Although the character models look relatively good the world seems a little bare. This is not surprising given that the game’s minimum requirements are quite low: a Pentium II 400 with 128mb of RAM and a display card that supports DirectX 8.1or higher are all you need. If you are sporting a relatively new computer with a fast CPU and new model graphics card, say something in the Geforce 66XX and up rang,e you shouldn’t have *any* problems running the graphics on full. It’s interesting that the world is a little bare because your characters are kept on an awesome looking island full of lush grass and palm trees. In contrast to this, you might find yourself thinking that the world is missing some decoration, especially as you get further into the game. I must say you will be impressed by some of the buildings at the start. In the early stages you can take your character to some of the highest points in the tallest buildings and jump all the way to the ground far below you without damage. You should also note that you will be provided with the ability to customize the face and appearance of your characters as you create them. The customization options are nice, but they don’t equate to big changes in the game. Oddly enough it seems like your character is constantly out of breath in the game. Everyone stands there heaving like they have just run the 5K…"
