Two thumbs up!

Tales Runner’s game play is fast, simple, and extremely fun. Its style of racing falls somewhere between Mario Kart and Kart Rider but since the racing takes place on foot the feel of the races are different. Racing on foot lends a strong sense of vulnerability to the game, especially when being attacked by the multitude of weapons that players can use. Character customization is a must for any MMO game. Normally, an MMO Racing Game would ignore the customization aspect and focus strictly on the racing. While this model has worked to some small extent in the past, Tales Runner has instead developed a solid racing engine, and added a level of character customization that is on par with most MMORPGs. Players start with a choice of two characters, Charlie and Ming Ming. Charlie is the archetypal trouble maker and Ming Ming is his child actress friend. Both of these characters start off with different stats, giving an early lesson in making character choices that are appropriate to a player’s racing style. There are 6 more characters available to choose from. The characters must be unlocked by using TR, Tales Runner’s in game currency. Each character has unique items and outfits that are unlockable through the use of TR. Overall, Tales Runner is a fun, casual experience. The presence of an active GM team makes for a pleasant change. The forums are active and informative. The game’s story does not play that large a role but does provide a rare opportunity for players to watch as the story and game expand together at the request of the community. The amount of character customization is high and with dozens of unlockable items, outfits, and accessories players will be able to stand out.
