Game graphics were really good, as was the facility to put your items in a chest for your other characters. The game was easy to learn, and simple to master, sometimes too simple as mobs can be one hit on the lower settings. The early mounts, moved well under player guidance, and were easy to perform mounted combat from. Teleports were few and far between, so having the mount made questing faster.
On the down side, the mounts were very weak and died easily, not a good thing when you're paying a lot of hard saved gold for them. When you leave cities you are attacked constantly from mobs crossing the paths, making your path to your next quest objective a constant battle. This made questing hard work, to the point where the game lost it's enjoyment for me.
The game somewhat got better as I levelled due to the mounts being higher level that I bought as I levelled, and having the ability to run through the mobs due to having more health at high level so didn't have to fight them to survive. However, the amount of mobs that the programmers put in at low level outside of cities, for me, made the game somewhat un-playable. Most games of this type I have come accross have very few or no mobs on the paths at low level making the environment safe for the young adventurer.
I feel that if you want a simple adventure and have a great deal of determination, then this is the game for you.
