In honor of the 60th Anniversary of The Legend of Condor Heroes, The Legend of Condor Heroes mobile MMORPG was launched last week in Singapore and Malaysia. Since I was once a fan of the classic novel and TV series, I gave the mobile MMORPG a try so here is a The Legends of Condor Heroes review!


Introduction

Officially authorized by Jin Yong, The Legends of Condor Heroes is featuring everything from the original novel such as the scenery, characters and skills. As the mobile MMORPG is collaborating with the TV series remake – The Legend of Condor Heroes 2017, you will see the characters looking similar to the corresponding TV series’ actors.

Gameplay

The story basically focuses on your encounters with the Five Greats (Huang Yaoshi, Hong Qigong, Ouyang Feng, Duan Zhengcun and Wan Chongyang) and the investigation of a legendary martial arts manual – Nine Yin Manual (九阴真经). You will even embark on a journey along with the main protagonist including Guo Jing after a certain chapter.

You will need to make a choice between the 4 classic classes – the Beggars, Quanzhen, Taohua and Baituo at the beginning of the game. Every class comes with their very own martial abilities where you can unlock and upgrade them according to your character level. Furthermore, the ability system promotes variety by allowing you to customize your abilities – matching up different line-up of skills (up to 100 possible combinations!).

To strengthen your combat power, there are tons of equipment (in different rarity) for you to collect and upgrade. You can also inlay gems on the equipment. From my experience, obtaining rare equipment are easier than I thought as certain quests reward you with them.

Other than the main story quests, different side quests such as Equipment Quest and Items Quest are available to fill up your time (and get experience/materials). However, you will need to form a team to participate in these side quests (time to make some friends~). You can participate in the various PK modes including Arena and Huashan tournament to grab yourself some rewards too.

The game introduces camp system too where you can join one of the two camps – Hall of Loyalty or Tower of Misty Rain. Joining a camp will grant yourself the access to camp activities (camp VS camp battle, Capture The Flag and more) alongside hundreds of your allies.

As I mentioned above, you can make friends using the various social system. You can join a guild, find a master or get to know someone with similar interest from TaoHua Island (similar to Wechat’s Moment). You (and your friend) can even get married after a certain friendship level!

Pros

The mobile game inherits the worldview from The Legend of Condor Heroes, so fans of the original novel / TV series may find it familiar. For example, the epic battles between the “Five Greats” on the Huashan Mountain or Genghis Khan in Mongolian outfit. All of these actually brought back a lot of my memories!

In addition, there will be a lot of rewards – ingots, legendary equipment, mounts and more obtainable from daily login or quests so free-to-play players won’t feel disadvantaged comparing to the pay-to-play players.

Cons

Although you can still powers up yourself without using a cent, some of the coolest mounts and outfits are only obtainable by spending real cash. Also, the character’s voiceover and the subtitles are not in sync (sometimes), which make the cinematic part weird.

Conclusion

Aside from those that I mentioned, there is still a lot of interesting features up for you to explore as I couldn’t fit all of them in this review. If you are someone who likes martial arts themed MMORPG, you should give Legend of Condor Heroes a try. While if you are a fan of The Legend of Condor Heroes, you should definitely try it out because it is time to get those nostalgic feels back!
