Man Royale is one of my favourite sites for smooth (and some hairy), muscled hunks and jocks who get off on hardcore sex. Its high quality movies are totally collectable and awesome to watch, with good chemistry, high production standards and some load-blowing guys appearing in them.
Since our first review of Man Royale the site has come along in leaps and bounds, with another 30 scenes being added. The quality of the videos and picture sets has has been maintained at a very high level. I was really impressed with amazing location and gorgeous models they are using here, and It is remains a must have site for lovers of top end gay porn.
I don't say this lightly but Man Royale is one of the best gay hardcore sites around at the moment. Why do I say that? Well, for me it is because there is something I just cant put a finger on, something special, magical almost, about the membership area. I think it's to do with the guys; they are the driving force behind what is actually a pretty straightforward site.
You've got a set of videos with galleries, and a model index. That's about it. OK, so you can make comments and rate the content as you go, there is a page showing you what is top rated and there is a model index, but even that simply lists guys and their scenes. There's nothing extra or fancy, no forum or guestbook, no blog that's immediately obvious and not a lot of information about the guys or the scenes. And yet it all works perfectly.
You've got some top names in the collection of 106 guys. (I am thinking particularly of Tyler Sweet, currently king of the twinks IMHO; hes not exclusive to this site and only makes one appearance but it's one you won't forget in a hurry.) And you have some others who I don't recognise but who are chosen because they can, at the drop of a hat or pair of briefs, rival anything the likes of Bel Ami could come up with. I'd even go so far as to say that these guys are up there with the new William Higgins style of model. And I will keep coming back to the fact that for me it is the models who make the site what it is. Awesome.
The scenes are played out in a kind of standard way thug there is a leaning towards moves with scenarios, rather than simply getting the film started with a quick kiss and a BJ, as so many other sites do. You've got neat settings, classy locations, mainly indoors but with showers and seductions included, and you have good music fading in to natural sound. Visually the scene are very good looking and although the downloads favour fast connections (with some huge files, the biggest I've encountered) you will be able to stream the standard version on a mid-range connection with no trouble. The Mp4 also downloaded nice and fast and for both this and the medium stream, the full screen versions were just fine with no pixilation.
So, what you're looking at here are top quality movies with some very special models, some great filmmaking and photography, a collection that is exclusive and being updated and a great value experience with some very special models. Ok, so there's not a lot more than the movies, galleries and hot guys, and there are a few too many adverts for my liking but all in all, this is certainly a site to rave about.
You will find two choices for downloading in HD with Mpeg and WMV files, and then a smaller Mp4 file which is still stunning quality. You're able to stream in higher or medium quality as well. But overall with the high class filmmaking and the standard of models, you have no quality worries here. The galleries hold quality screen caps and digital stills.
There were 126 full length scenes running for up to 40 minutes. These came with galleries that also had good numbers of collectable images. The scenes are all about hardcore after erotic foreplay, they are well made and atmospheric. There are updates happening all the time as well, and you can find the guys you want to get to know in the model index.
You're looking at exclusive content that is not only well made but totally load-blowing; it's up there with the top name studios if you ask me. You've got exclusive models as well, and others who are top of their game. There are neat interactive functions, easy navigation and no technical issues. You also benefit from a good design.
I always have a bit of a problem with pre-checked cross sales on sign up pages, so watch out for them. I'd have liked movies in clips as well as full scenes as some files are over 2GB which is a pretty hefty download if you're not on the super-fast-highway. We could also do with losing some of the adverts to cam sites that pepper the pages.
The monthly price is a bit of a steal when you consider not only how good the content is but how much here is of it and how exclusive it is. You do even better for the three monthly option, even with no bonus sites. The trial period may limit you as to what you can see, but my advice would be to go for the full monthly membership and stay with it.
Man Royale is one of those sites that I just cant help but rave about. The guys are stunning in looks and body, the chemistry is there, the fantasies are well played out, the filming and production values are sky high and you get a lot of long scenes to savour, plus good updates, galleries, navigation are all the other assets. It's like finding gold.
