I thought the ill-proportioned, chunky characters were perfect and the best part of the game.
However, I thought the gameplay was awful.
I seemed to spend about 25% of my time just traveling. Not doing anything, just running from one place to another - places I'd been before (I thanked god that they were smart enough to monsters ignore you if you were way more powerful than them.)
I seemed to spend the rest of my time out in fields waiting for monsters to spawn. Too many damn "give me 10 of these" quests. Only one monster gives those items, and only 10 of the time, so to get 10 items you needed to kill 100 monsters. The fields had 10 monsters there at a time, spread out, and 10 people where there killing them, so you spent a lot of time waiting for the monsters to spawn, running looking for them, and often saw someone else fighting one instead.
And this was on a fairly empty, new server.
Not to mention combat being hitting 5, waiting, hitting 4, waiting, hitting 3, waiting, hitting 2, watching, then collecting the loot.
I keep saying it, but I only lasted 10 days in this game. I was so damn bored with it.
