Legend of Martial Arts is the second MMORPG by PWE to use cartoony, anime style graphics with the first being Ether Saga Online.

The game’s graphics were improved, and so far the game has received positive feedback.
Starting with the launch of the international version of Perfect World, PWE now has an impressive portfolio of games including Jade Dynasty, Battle of the Immortals, Heroes of Three Kingdoms, and Forsaken World.
