The MMO to bridge East and West?

Though I get a little cheesed at meaningless game names whose sole purpose is to fill out a snappy abbreviation, I might just give Soul of the Ultimate Nation (or SUN, /sigh) a shot, based on what TMCnet's saying.

"Sun'' has top-quality graphics and sound, but what distinguishes it most from a hundred similar MMORPGs is that it is designed to meet the taste of both Western and Asian audiences. There are tons of missions, quests and adventures for Western users who tend to play solo.

Apparently, for the first time ever, it's a blend of what eastern and western gamers want . Oh, Lineage you say? FFXI you say? Nevermind those.

Just read TMCnet's first impressions on Webzen's Soul of the Ultimate Nation by clicking here.

Looks like these guys got a little more info than we did out of our visit. If you haven't heard of SUN yet, it looks like a visually stunning game. Other than that, your guess is as good as mine.

irst blush and I couldn’t take my eyes off the game. Let’s face it, it’s truly a moving piece of artwork. I don’t normally go gaga for graphics but in the case of SUN it made me want to take the time to play it some and see it up close and personal. On screen it was high detail and crisp all the way down to the last pixel. The movies playing on screen were impressive as well but nothing beats taking a look at the game itself instead of just the prefab movies created to make the game look as good as possible.
