If you asked me which developer would have been the first to make a global sensation such as Genshin Impact, the first company which comes to mind is honestly X-Legend Entertainment, the Taiwanese outfit which started out with Holy Beast Online many years ago. While successes such as Grand Fantasia and Aura Kingdom followed, X-Legend has since fallen behind times and playing catchup to other developers such as miHoYo.
Grand Fantasia Reborn, despite positioning itself as the return-to-form game for X-Legend, reeks of mediocrity and rehashed features which are getting all too common. Grand Fantasia was a good PC MMORPG, but Reborn is nothing more than an attempt to hold on to past glories. Grand Fantasia Reborn also failed at adding lame comical theatrics into the cutscenes as part of the storyline, something which I feel de-values the game.
