Aura Kingdom is a fantasy anime-style MMORPG that has the player take on the role of an 'Envoy of Gaia' - a human with abilities far exceeding those of all but other Envoys. Every player is given three Eidolons throughout the story, NPC companions each with their own unique set of abilities, stats, and even personality.

The gameplay of Aura Kingdom is fairly repetitive, with hundreds of kill __ of __ and gather __ of __ quests. There is also very little 'multiplayer' as far as MMOs go. One could potentially complete every quest alongside friends rather easily, but there is little merit to doing so other than the obvious social benefits. Armour grants you stats and costumes grant minor benefits and the visual appeal. While this somewhat stifles players' creativity in creating costumes from inexpensive armours, you will also never have to walk around in a barrel. Everything is stylish and fits someone's tastes.

The level cap set at 65 (correct me if I'm wrong) the grind to 40 goes smoothly enough, with quests being the best source of EXP around. Monsters grant players VERY little EXP, usually below .15% per.

Now here's the catch; this game can be quite addicting when played with friends, and there is always a fresh, shiny new set of armours and weapons waiting for you at every level milestone. Despite being an MMO, this game holds plenty of replayability to try out each class, skillsets, and offensive/defensive point spreads.

I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a casual game to goof around in with friends.

If you liked Forsaken World or Perfect World International (PWI) (in some ways even Battle of the Immortals/War of the Immortals) then you will like this game, it plays a lot like them with various improvements and it may even be the same game engine. Single click auto-pathing for quests, lots of unique little things to participate in, ability to skip quest dialog, full featured minimap will click to move, no need to loot after monster kills, etc. The user interface is refined and has a lot of nice little features not seen in the larger MMOs. The improvements make the game easy to understand and play.

The game is definately targeted for the casual player. It has nice graphics and sound, but a lot of the improvements are focused around making the game fast and easy to play. Unlike so many other MMOs, you get a mount very early on. You should be level 10 and have one toolbar of skills, a mount, and your companion, within an hour or two of starting the game.

You get to choose your companion when you create your character, and there are seven different choices. Each one has different skills and focuses - one may be a healer and another a warrior type. The companion is similar in functionality to SWTOR companions, but you can even have little conversations with them.

You gain new skills (based on the class you choose) as you level automatically, and you have character improvement tileset. You gain one improvement point every three levels. I call it a tileset because its not a tree, your starting point is in the middle of all of the tiles and you can pick improvement tiles moving outward in any direction.

The in game store items seem a little expensive compared to other games. They have plenty of various cheap or expensive items, but just for comparison: 75 cents for a 20% xp boost for 60 minutes, $5 for a 20% xp boost for 24 hours play time (24 hours of played time, not calendar time so it will last multiple days), $50 for a unique mount that is 60% movement speed, if you buy 4 of them you can combine them into a 90% mount. For $15 you can get an item that gives you a 24 hours of 50%/25% monster/quest xp boost. I like the play time versus day time system, because it discourages afks and it is aimed at the casual player who might play one or two days a week. So if you play around 5 or 6 hours a week, the $15 boost will last you about a month.

You can purchase XP books from the store that instantly give amounts of XP, 29 cents for a book that gives the equivalent of 20 monster kills of your level. You can buy the in-game cash shop currency in $5, $10, $25 etc increments. They also have spending "tier" rewards per month, as you reach higher tiers you get greater free rewards. The first two spending tiers are at $5 and $15. Purchases go through the Steam Store so you don't have to visit another website.

Overall it is a very refined game with a lot of features and a better UI that is not found in today's larger MMOs. The cash shop is optional but the enticement to buy XP outright, or buy timed XP boosts will always be tempting - but "free" games are not free to build and run by the companies that make them and they need to make a profit.

It is a good way to spend some free / extra time, but compared to previous Aeria games releases that is basically it.

I will rate this game on nthe basis of 3 different categories
1.Gameplay
2.Graphics
3.Enjoyment
1.Gameplay-9/10,
This game is a semi real time action/mmorpg game and for a semi real time game, the combat system is really fluid, it's also fairly simple and does not suffer from any bugs, it also helps that all the moves are enjoyable to look at.
2.Graphics-9/10-Great graphics, especially the anime art style, the models are all smooth and do not look weird, backgrounds are beautiful too, though needs better optimization.
3.Enjoyment-8.5/10, it is pretty simple to play and really enjoyable, quests dont feel like chores and fighting the mobs are always fun, but the games needs to promote more team play, it just seems boring playing alone and PVP needs to be improved.
Overall 9/10
If you are a fan of anime you will love this game.

Beautiful game, fast and easy to learn, with that said I'm just gonna throw some pros and cons:

Pros:
- If you're into anime stuff you will love this game.
- Beautiful scenarios, day/night phase in almost all of them, colorful and cute.
- Easy and fast to learn, with a few hours in game you will catch it pretty fast.
- Most of the community it's pretty friendly, always glad to help low levels (at least an 80% of it).
- Not P2W, the only thing that you can actually do with money here it's get pets, costumes/hats (you can get the same costumes/hats just playing the game and saving "loyaty points") and/or mounts. There's an alternative to real money stuff, the "loyalty points" are currency in-game that you can earn doing daily quest and completing achievements.
- Eidolon system, which in my opinion adds that special thing to the game, there's a long list of 'em, some are easy to get and some take time.
- Weekly maintenance and more content to be added in the future.
- As every other MMORPG, events.


Cons:
- Grindy, once you finish the main quest, you will probably get stuck in the 57-60 level area, where the only thing that you can do it's: well, dungeons, dungeons, daily quests, dungeons, and desperate a bit for that level 60.
- Bots, yes, each of the three servers have a load of bots, also known as "the redhead army". They're just gold farming bots, who usually send you trash mail telling you to buy gold for 4 bucks.
- Can turn boring time to time, and probably in the "57-60 area" previously descrived.
- Lag/delay in some dungeons
- The devs are hmmm how to descrive it, hmmm they're not bad, but they're kinda lazy, and when a problem arise most of the time they will opt for an easy solution. Note* this doesnt happen most of the time.
- Huge risk of a rollback when an imminent issue shows. Ex. a few months ago the item mall started to work wrong, the prices were wrong, and of course people took that chance to get cheap stuff, with that done the devs just did a rollback (if you're not used to that word, a rollback it's just what it sounds) they returned the status of the server to the day before that issue happen, with that done every single player lost the items/gold/exp/levels/progress achieved that day, after that they apologized with the community and gave to every player affected by the rollback a special package and a week of 50% more drop and exp.

This game really impressed me, out of all the free to play mmorpg's on Steam, this one I recommend over all others. This game has a multitude of good aspects, for instance the classes. This game has a large amount of classes available immediately, and in addition at level 40 you can choose a second class. The game has absolutely no need to spend real money in, leveling is fairly well paced throughout the game (I've only had to grind for a level twice) and all items you can spend money on are either customisation, mounts (you get one for free before you even reach level 10), or items you can get by playing the game. The game also has a great guild system, which encourages members to aid their guild so it can level up to provide bonuses to all members of the guild. Graphically the game actually looks pretty good, with an anime inspired art design and some decently creative orginal monster designs. Gameplay is your standard hotkey system mmorpg style, while I have railed on this system multiple times in the past, this game did it well in my opinion. Unlike other games using the hotkey system, Aura Kingdom made it enjoyable by 1. Not requiring me to mash a button for my standard attack (I'm looking at you Star Wars the Old Republic) 2. Having enjoyably flashy ability animations and 3. providing a cool combo system with the second class (which with the correct combinations of weapons can lead to powerful special abilities). The only complaint I have with this game is the story, it's not bad and it's not the game's fault that I don't enjoy it. Due to the previously mentioned Star Wars the Old Republic I have a hard time enjoying mmorpg's that don't at least have voice acting, though as said it's my fault. If you enjoy games with an anime art style, mmorpg's, or mmo's in general, you will love this game and I can't recommend it enough. Other wise definitely give it a shot. Finally though, if you aren't a fan of any of the previously mentioned then admittedly this game won't change your mind on the genre.

Enjoyed it whilst it lasted, besides some things just arent clear at all, like some useless quests which seem pointless to whatever is goig on at the time. although i really enjoyed playing it and sometimes the pointless uests were a nice break from the usual ones that you will come across. Highly reccomend to anime lovers.

Autopilot : The Game.

If you like an MMORPG where you can be a cute animu grill AND manage to not use your keyboard for a few hours, then this is the game for you! Seriously, though, when you get a quest, you can click the quest objective and the game literally takes you there; it holds your hand several steps beyond quest markers. Not just that, but it auto-mounts you too, so you don't even need to do that! Plus you have a companion that will wind up doing all the attacking for you!

Honestly, if the game didn't need you to click the next quest objective once in a while, you could probably leave it running overnight and wake up as max level.

That being said, the gameplay's alright. The story's awful and it plays like a generic MMORPG, but considering it's free...not bad.

Still, though, I would suggest not wasting your time with this.
