    "It is difficult to find good RPG games for the iPad that don't get boring after a short amount of time. Pocket Legends is an impressive MMORPG for being free to download and play. However, there are many aspects of the game that do encourage the players to pay for extras and this can be discouraging if you do not want to pay."

    "OK, bad graphics, maybe insensitve to the current political climate and a game about paperwork? Strangely, this game works. It is a setting where you have to survive in a less than ideal state, you want to help people but also needs to make decisions for yourself. I at first played this to see how bad it was expecting 10 minutes at the most and still was plsying three hours alter. "
