I don't know why the developers have stopped working on it but it is an amazing game. Initial stages seem boring because of less abilities but when u lvl up and gain skills, the combat system becomes awesome.

Let me say, Don't call me a hipster for what I am going to say about this game.
This is an interesting game to play that is fun just to mess around with sometimes, It is quite demanding of low spec
pc's though but not enough to bring your FPS down to an unplayable rate. The enemies are a bit interesting...I guess....
But its a hack and slash and you will find it fun to beat the crap out of the creatures around for no reason....TRUTH...

Let's start with the positives:
Characters look good (you can be a babe or a badass).
Fighting animation is relatively smooth.

Now the negatives:
everything.
Doesn't explain much to you.
While animations look smooth, performing them is horrendous.
Doesn't scale with resolution.
Overall game graphics are bad.
Voices make you want to take Q-tip, soak it with alcohol, light it on fire, and shove it down your ears as far as it goes.
Everything is waaaaaaay too instanced. You can literally run for 5s before having to enter a new zone.
Didn't even get to the point of unlocking skills or anything so can't give an opinion about the late game.

Early Access Review
Posted: August 21, 2014
This game is NOT new. Divine Souls was originally supposed to be released in 2010 for the North American and Europe regions by a small game hosting company named Outspark. This is the same company that held on to "Fiesta Online" for several years before discarding it and letting a new unknown company have complete ownership of it. Divine Souls was supposed to be an action RPG that would rival "Dragon Nest" and "Vindictus" which got few people (including myself) looking forward towards it. However, the game was mysteriously canceled for release and the dicussion forums for the game were completely deleted. There was no word given out for why this happened, but it did. It's cancellation left me disapointed but then I went to play Dragon Nest and forgot about this game.

Now 4 years later I see it on Steam as "EARLY ACCESS". Early access? It's been four years since this game's disappearance, what happened? Four years ago they planned to release this game in this stage? Honestly Divine Souls is terrible. It's as if it was supposed to be made in 2005 with it's sloppy controls, terrible animations, outdated gameplay and awkward battle system. It claims itself to be in early access but there's no way of improving something that was originally planned to be released at this stage. This horrible stage.

Basically Divine Souls is a game made for the year 2005 that was supposed to be released on 2010, dropped midway through development four years ago and just got picked up by some indie team who got it on Steam somehow.

We all know "Omer from MMOHUT.com". Go watch his video review for this game which was made during the actual release date.

Dungeon based? Not a problem.

Gender locked classes? Not a problem, either.

Combo based? Hey, I play Vindictus. Not a problem.


BUT


WTF is this? The characters animations are SO poorly made. SO SO poorly made... I can't even put it in words.

Definitely NOT recommended. It's boring, it's slow, it's ugly. No way.

As far as I'm aware of, this game has been released before under a different publisher. However, a move to a differen publisher doesn't exactly save a game.

This was an interesting and unique concept for MMO's a couple of years ago, having action based combat rather than your tab targeting and going through your row of hotkeys to cast spells, etc. Here, we see combat in the same style of Vidictus or Dragon Nest. The game also operates in the same style (go to hub, grab quest, go do dungeron until quest is done).

You'll create your character from an extremely limited selection of four classes and then, again, from a very limited selection of clothing and hair styles to pick (usually all of it just being a recolor). This is 2014, and most MMO's will provide you the tools to make your character feel different from everyone else, but here once I popped in game I couldn't really tell me apart from the others. This isn't even the worst sin the game has to offer.

I mentioned earlier that the combat is action based, rather than tab targeting. Seeing as I've played plenty of Vindictus and max leveled numerous times in TERA, I would consider myself a fan of the style. However, here, it feels really clunky. Poor animations and boring links between your attacks and skills make for a boring game. Action combat should be a fluid expierence, but here it feels like a jagged mess. Nothing flows together very well, and everything just feels "meh". I felt like my attacks had no impact on the enemy and that's just not good game feel.

For those who really care about asthetics, the graphics are subpar and the music is perhaps the most generic I've heard in an MMO. There's nothing here that should hold your eyes or ears.

Overall, this is an expierence you can pass up. There are plenty of other MMO's that provide a much better, fluid, and well thoughtout expierence.

Figured I'd give this game a try since I enjoy Vindictus. Huge mistake on my part. They bog you down with only 24 inventory slots start. Theres zero autostacking when it comes to quest rewards. Things like the ui and combat I can live with(I have seen worse). Just feels like they want you to pay to not be burdened within the first half hour of the game.

It's a relic; a game abandoned thrice times by developers and publishers. Even when it initially launched it was allegedely "revolutionary". The only thing revolutionary was it was the lack of polish and clunkiness of its controls.

I tried playing it multiple times when it was picked up by other developers, only to find that it literally never changed.

Do NOT bother with this trash title. It has failed so many times it's on the same level of WarZ with the developer incompetence.

If you like redundant battles with no patches, updates or oversight go for it. I'm thinking they were trying for Vindictus a bit with their dungeon modes to complete quests but failed utterly, which is a real shame because this can sometimes be a fun game. The lack of a community, friends being unable to add you to their friends list or dungeon party make the game play pretty unexciting. You go back into dungeons over and over as the completed quests continue to be quests (but at different levels). They have an Auction House but who knows what really happens to items you post. They just sort of disappear, never to be heard of again. Play Vindictus, Tera or even WoW for goodness sake and skip this one.

Still in beta so you can only hope things get better

Pros:
Graphically, it looks pretty good
Controls apeared to be responsive
ARPG combo combat makes for for fun than hitting a key to trigger an attack (but we all know you'll just hammer the primary attack most the time)
Some voice acted quest text - maybe more to come

Cons:
(pretty much everything)
Didn't feel like a finished game just needing a little polish like you'd expect in an open beta
Bad english tanslation, felt like the hired voice actors just read the text direct from google translate
I nearly turned the game off in the intro movie, it was just dull
Instant teleport between quest hubs, no exporation, its just port to a hub, do the dungeon port to the next one
"dungeon" stages are simply waves of monstors attacking, the second wave just spawns on top of you, you can only move on after killing all in each small stage, maybe these will get biger later in the game, maybe not such a bad thing that you can't skip the trash to take on the boss but it didn't work for me
limited character customisation, currently only 4 classes, a few hair styles and faces

maybe in another year this will be worth playing but its far from it today

I did not have any expectations for this game. I am aware it's not technically a brand new game.

It is however a FREE Third Person Action MMORPG with a ton of equippable items and a huge emphasis on combination attacks. The combinations can get pretty intense but it's all spelled out and even has a UI that displays different buttons you can push to continue a combination. Anyone who is familiar with combination fighting games should have no trouble understanding the mechanics of Divine Souls. The mechanics themselves are also pleasantly fluid and it's easy to engage in battles to unleash a punishing flurry of attacks. The special "charge" attacks are devastating.

The RPG element is very big as well and there are seemingly hundreds of missions (a primary story and tons of side-quests). The voice acting is humorous but it gets the job done (there are text subtitles). RPG features include crafting, enchanting, upgrades, an auction house and supports both multi-player and single-player battles. The graphics are not cutting edge but are still smooth and because of this I can run the game in it's supported 1920x1080 resolution with no frame loss.

Overall the game is easy to pick up and start having fun right away. I am level 27 right now.

Its alright.
The game is still in beta, and feels like its missing a lot of content. Yes, the voice acting is terrible and the servers can be buggy at times, but for everything that it is, its alright.
This is a pretty basic 'starter' MMO nothing spectacular about it.
If you like anime style games but not really into how more hardcore some mmos can be, then try this one before you discount the entire genre.

Edit: After getting bored with my current games, I am going to put more time in this game, if only just to write a better review.


Edit 2: From what i have seen now, there are more combos than what I had originaly thought, but you mainly have to look down at the button option every 5 seconds to make sure you don't miss your chance at a combo.
Also: I have gone into 2 differnet dungeons right now, and have played both twice. Both game me 1337 exp every time, not sure if the game is just doing that, or if that is just "Luck". Will write more when I find out.


This game just didn't seem that well made to me. The Voice acting seems rushed (In the intro you can hear the guy taking deep breaths, and also many skips within that intro can be heard), and the Tutorial also seems rushed. There are 2 "Types" of tutorials in this game, and only one is useful, but it is the one almost no one will see.
At the start of the game, you move around, kill things, look around, kill more things, grab their loot (On which the game doesn't even tell you want it is/does), and then go to the main City. And that is when the Non-usful tutorial ends.
The useful tutorial is only displayed as tips on the bottom of your screan that you have to click on in order to see what they say, and even then, about 90% of the time nobody reads them.

When you enter the main city, a window pops up saying to go talk to someone (I think, all I remember is that it says to press T to talk to people). The person you talk to gives you a very generic quest; go here and kill X amount of baddies, and I will give you X reward. In this case, you have to kill around 10 goblins. Now, the only way the game presented players to kill said goblins was to enter a dungeon. This wouldn't be such a bad Idea if the options to make a dungeon weren't available right away. I found myself kinda wanting to choose other options, only because they were all present there for me to choose from. (What I am saying here is that they should either make the others un-clickable intill a certain level, or at least tell you in a more Direct way what they all do.) Then at the end of a dungeon, you play a game of Rock-Paper-Scisiors, that even if you lose it, you still get extra money and items.

Then with the combat system, oh boy. The game seems to want to sell off "Look at this awesome combo!" for the combat. All I had to do to kill everything in my way, was left click 4 times in a row. I did the same combo every time, because it was also the ONLY combo i could do. I tried to hold the left button longer, press it faster and more times, everything! But all it allowed me to do was swipe three times, and jump above them for a smash.
Also with the combat is a grabbing system, that needs to be re-thought about. You can grab anything that isn't a boss from what I have seen. But grabbing is also confusing for the point that when you grab the, you don't want to press left click, for that drops them doing no damage. You want to press the spacebar to deal any damage with the grab.

Then with the character creation... none. You choose what class you want to be, and if you want to be a Femail prest, or a male Mage... then you are out of luck. The genders are locked for the classes, which leaves little room for customising. The hair options you can choose from are Pre-colored, so even when changing the hair color option, you will still have the tink of Purple/Pink/Whatever that certain hair style's color is.
When "customising" your clothes, you only change the main color of your shirt, pants, gloves, and shoes.

The story also seems kinda bland, just read this: You are part of a nation (which one I am still unsure of, but I think Vermont) that is trying to save a captured War-Hero from terrorists.

... What? You wanted more story? Well that is the jist of it from what the game is willing to say at the start. Now I will say that story's like this are common for games like this, starts with something very simple, then works it's way up. (See every Final Fantasy game) But really, a fallen country now has a Terrorist group that is planning on bringing the country back from the ashes by... kid-napping the person who helped kill it in the first place? I'm not to sure what is going on in their minds, but I will let it be, since i have not played for even an hour.

The countries are also wierdly names. There is Syria, Vermont, some other country that I couldn't be bothered to remember, and Growl (Or ground? The voice actor seems to say both in the intro).


All in all, I guess this is a F2P game, that could get some work done on it to make it better, but for now it doesn't seem that good to me, so I would give this game a 2/10. I know there are some people who really love this game, and good for them! They found a game that they can enjoy, and it isn't even fully released yet!

Thanks for reading!

Ok, I'm being honest here and as somebody who usually doesn't play many games I don't high-set standards. But I can at least say that at the current stage it should have not been released yet. The concept isn't all that bad, but the way it's been worked out until now is very half-♥♥♥♥♥ and grubby. The way it is right now it's not at all enjoyable. Perhaps I have pretty high expectations BECAUSE I don't play much, but to me it's common sense that when I turn the camera my character walks into the direction I'm looking. And the one character type I chose to play was not only (as actually expected, but not hoped for) somewhat oversexualized, but even the way she walked was completely ridiculed. The character designs were standard, and had very slight to no variation (it's not that hard to make the differences in color a little more significant, now is it?). Well, I was about 2 minutes into it until I decided to quit because it wasn't fun to me. No fun to look at, no fun to play. It was just clicking through the combos and trying to keep myself directed towards the enemy (I already know the phenomenon of the camera going into weird perspectives that make fighting very difficult, but it's still annoying).
Having that said, I'd like the developers to put a little more effort into it. I even skipped the introductive narratation because the voice actor was clearly an amateur and didn't even use a good microphone. Apart from the fact that it wasn't interesting to me, but maybe that's just me.
Overall it just lacks the passion you should put into your own game.

Dated visuals. Tutorial didn't work. Mamy character customization options look the same. Movement is too fast and control is sluggish. Had to navigate through about 7 menus and access about 4 different areas before being able to fight a small group of enemies... then had to navigate to another area.. (too much navigating/loading new areas). Gender locked classes, uninteresting classes. In total this seems to be a mediocre game not worth much time.
