Great game but the International version is full of hacks

Dark eden the online horror game created by softon. It has 4 versions all of them free
A Korean version (The main one) A Chinese version An International version and a Thailand version all of them Different in small ways.

Ive played the International version and Thailand version and this review will be about the International version.

Overview
----------------------
There are two races The Vampires And The Slayers. Each race Has a Different appearance and Different skills/Abilities etc.

The vampires level up and become stronger by killing monsters and they get more experience points for blood sucking them when they are about to die.Vampires Use magic types like blood (which cost hp points pretty cool) and acid/poisons.

The Slayers are the big good guys you could say the humans. Slayers wear lots of armor and resistance items to beat vampires. Slayers have 5 Different classes that a player can level up in these 5 classes are Sword,Enchanter,Blade,Gun (Guns not bows and arrows) and Healing each class has its Own weakness as well as unique skills no group of slayers will be the same. Slayers Gain experience by useing learned skills instead of mainly killing.

Each Race has a level max of lvl 150 which will take some time to get to.

The races are at war with eachother slayers can freely attack Vampires and Vampires can freely attack slayers Regardless of level.

Gameplay
----------------
The gameplay is mostly Point and click with a good chat and Clan system.

The sad thing is though this game is 100% combat based if you cant fight you can barely move out of your spawn point without getting killed by a person of the opposite race or a monster. This game is also about leveling up and if your not lvl 90+ you cant survive in the better and cooler areas However leveling up is easy in this game (unlike other MMORPGS).

Slayers fight with a variety of skills related to the class they chose to become a master in. Swords have Cool Sleek skills Blades have Tough brute like skills etc.
The skill visuals are very well done and look very cool on a good computer.

I have absolutely no experience as a Vampire so I cant say much about them.

Sound
---------
The sound is awesome everything has a unique sound and there is some music as well.

The Dark cloud
------------------
Never expected this did you? a point in the review where I will point out the 100 things wrong with this version of the game as of now...

The Admins All left the game a long time ago so the servers are unattended no maintainence they crash alot and on top of all that people have created over 6 different show stopping hacks that are freely distributed on websites Includeing Speedhacks,Boss Radar hacks (ill explain what bosses are later), and things like create item hacks!.

The bad thing is sence no Admins are present then that means that these hacks will never get fixed! and people use them freely and pick on people who dont hack.

Community
--------------
The community is horrible its full of foreign people and its hard to find someone who speaks english its full of Russians, Brazilians,Koreans (Who make fun of English players) and Chinese etc. And if your not lvl 100 your considered a Newbie and noone will let you into partys or let you into their training areas.
On top of all that there is no chat filter!.

Monsters
-----------
The monsters are in no short supply over 40 variety's and every now and then you will run into a boss monster. A boss monster is a monster that is a normal monster that is coated in a single colur and is very hard to defeat unless you severly outnumber him.

In the end
-----------

This game would be awesome if the Admins had stayed behind this game gets a 4 out of 10 for the whopping amount of hacks and the bad community

This game without hacks 8/10
This game with hacks 4 /10
