Anyone who falls in love with Zenonia 5 will be unlikely to do so because of the storyline, unless they take extreme comfort from familiarity. It's built from every staple of the Asian RPG genre, blended seamlessly into one whole. A dark force threatens the land, headed up by a particularly unpleasant mastermind. Within moments of starting the game, love interests are splashed around with a thick brush. There's even a sort of cognitive amnesia effect running rampant in the hero's dreams.
