I'm not normally impressed with MMORPGs, or their expansion packs for that matter, but Heart of Thorns is one of the few exceptions.

E What do these ratings mean?

Ok, I've waited a long time before buying this game, but now that I have it, I regret paying €20 (platinum) for it. The game begans relaxed, 2 heroes a green goblin pretending to be a king and his daughter, a horse, since they are under a spell and looking for a cure, this is totally acceptable. I also noticed during the first half hour that this game has some real nice cell shaded graphics, but stupid/irritating classic music... Going on I received a mission : finding a glass sphere in a cave. Went to the cave immediatly, encountered some foes on the way, killed 'em,  entered the cave, encountered 4 other foes, boom hero 1 dead, and had nothing to retrieve him :s. Went on a bit further, another foe, hero n°2 : Dead... OK, i spend A HALF HOUR grinding, some enemy's at random, to increase my level and I bought some better equipment, and some medical herbs for healing. Went to the cave, made it to the end, encountered a boss, killing my heroes in 2 strikes :sThat was the last minut i spend playing this game...

Dragon Quest... better name would have been grindquest... Well since I'm not a Japanese spending all my time grinding and grinding I gave up this game... Too bad indeed, I was really looking for the storyline since it got tons of good comments...

Hope I can warn some other people before buying this game, that it contains lots and lots of grinding, before getting any further....
