I have played a lot of games, and I mean a lot. Mostly MMO's in fact. I have never seen
one so undiverse, with no depth, and riddled with bugs as this one.
To start off, you are placed in some Hollow place, where you have to kill wolves
for a lady (which might I add may be difficult), this is the start of a almost 1 1/2 hour
tutorial where you do unuseful things, such as gather wood, just so you can walk over five
feet and make a bow that you proceed to take to some guy and he gives you a better one,
thus making the bow you spend ten minutes on useless. You can learn to cook, or brew
alcoholic beverages, by shaking a tree and a few button clicks. The tutorial is long,
basic, uninteresting a crueling and teaches you absolutely nothing useful about the actual
Let's talk a little more about the crafting. While the crafting is much like Guild
Wars 2's "Click, UI pops up, click on what you want, some time passes, item pops out" it
is actually very immersive in the fact that your crafting is nearly unlimited. It goes to
a very high point and you can basically craft any weapon, armor or anything else you want
if you have the materials
Characters. This just makes me angry beyond all recognition. It should make you
angry . A priest, hunter, warrior and mage. REALLY. You couldn't have at least tried to
come up with one ORIGINAL class. It's really not that hard. Just make a hunter with a
special twist, but NOOOOOOO, no originality in this game. There is nothing original about
any of the classes, they do the same thing that they do in every game. To add to the
unoriginal characters, they have their own "Talents" where you put your points when you
level up. There is only around 12 places to actually put your talent points. Then you just
keep putting them into the same ones, "upgrading" the talent.
While the talents are not abundent, the skills are. Woodcutting, Plant lore, and
fishing are just a couple. They all have unique perks and as you level up you get
"Achievements" which gies you some in game money to spend. This is useful not only from a
money standpoint, but also from a resource standpoint, you don't just grind mobs for
money. Sadly, the fish are just recolors of another fish for the most part.
Combat. Combat is a copy paste of WoW, just like the rest of this game. You click,
and your character auto-attacks, you can use your 1-0 keys to aid with your various skills
that unlock over time. Combat is nothing special, and pretty bland. Once you kill an
enemy, your loot flys fifty feet into the air and spews all over the place. Annoying. And
if you help someone kill another monster, and you aren't in the same party, then you might
not get the loot. To top it all off, all the quests are "Go kill X amount of _____ animal.
Come back to me when you did it." it's just a "grind" to the death.
Let's talk about graphics & UI. The graphics aren't that great, after all this is
2014. THis game honestly looks like the old Spyro games. I went to add my friend to the
friends list (if they had one, I didn't know if they did). I searched the menu until I
found the friends list, only to find that there is no search. You have to go and FIND your
friend in order to add them. When you find them they have to hold still so you can
"inspect" them and then move to the top of the screen to add them. It's a bother.
Quests. I have gone briefly over quests in the tutorial section of this segment,
BUT let me elaborate. The main questline is hardly thrown together. Side quests are
repetitive, and even some of them DON'T EVEN WORK. You can't comeplete some of the quests.
Not once have I ever seen an MMO where you can't complete a quest. Sometimes you can't
even talk to the person who gave you the quest in the first place.
Glitches. They are like your BFF in this game. There are too many. Everywhere you
look you may get stuck in a building or fall through the map or something else that should
not happen. As previously mentioned you might not be able to speak to the person you need
Map. The map is not open, it's just a bunch of miniscule, pre-defined maps, with
pre-defined spawns. In order to go to another part of the world you go to some teleporter
that isn't explained at all and is kind of just there. It's not open or free at all. You
feel confined to a small space in every map.
Cliche. There is a central city with all the merchants and teleporters to a whole
bunch of different parts of the map. That is so cliche of MMO's I can't describe how angry
that makes me. With the teleporters there is also lag as it genereates, so that is
Now let's take a nice little look at my personal ratings of this game.
Graphics- 2.5, welcome to the 1990's where there were no graphics but boxes. Oh, and fake
Story- 3, Thrown together by a three year old, I see no connections whatsoever to each
character you go to other than where they live
Gameplay- 1, This game is so broken it is no fun to play
Mechanics- 3, It is playable, but it looks as if it should not be released, almost like it
is early ALPHA. The controls are clunky and finicky.
Replay Value- 0, don't even bother to play it.
Soundtrack- 9, THE ONE THING THAT IS GOOD!! They have a nice soundtrack, suits the towns.
Overall: 3, This game isn't worth the time. It was so terrible I couldn't bear to play it
the full 5 hours I promise to do before a review. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME!
