The Legend of Mir 3 is an updated version of the original Mir 2. The graphics have been upgraded from 8-bit to 16-bit, which gives the game world a slightly more realistic appearance. Neither game is very new, and neither are likely to attract players based on visuals. What sets the Mir series apart from many other MMORPGs is the emphasis on hardcore PvP. Hundreds of online games have come and gone, but The Legend of Mir has proven its lasting power, especially in Asia where millions of gamers continue to enjoy the game. The series was never as popular in the West but old school action-RPG fans may find nostalgic value in the isometric camera angle and simple click-to-attack/move interface.
