Conclusion: That being said, the emphasis on grinding, the linear environment and the rather uninspired early levels pose a serious threat to this games growth. Whilst these are things that cannot be changed, it will depend on what NCSoft will do next which will ultimately make or break it.
Conclusion: Assault on Balaurae is definitely geared toward the hardcores, the very players the developers want to keep interested. They haven’t forsaken the lower-levels players by any stretch, encouraging them to gain experience to access the new content.
This fantasy massively multiplayer online game makes a great first impression, but almost every aspect of it devolves into a grind before you're even halfway to the level cap.

Summary: Upon entering Aion's world for the first time, you can't help but notice how beautiful it is, and for the first few hours it seems that as much attention has been lavished on the engaging quests and interesting characters as has on the CryEngine-powered visuals.
Pros: Visuals impress both technically and artistically, First 10 to 12 levels are a joy to play, Fast-paced and intuitive combat system
Cons: Grinding quickly becomes an obtrusively big part of gameplay, Servers seem unable to cope with large-scale PVP battles, Invisible walls make flying much less fun than it should be, Sound design is all over the place
Excerpt: The massively multiplayer online RPG hasn't changed much in the past ten years. Ever since Everquest introduced gamers to a large, 3D world, most that followed have only added their own spin on that idea, polishing and expanding where necessary, but hardly ever innovating.
Summary: Jedná se o online RPG hru, která rozhodně každého upoutá stylem provedení a hlavně poutavým příběhem. Ke hraní je nutné platit měsíční poplatky pomocí vaší kreditní karty nebo předplacené herní karty, nicméně hru můžete pořádně ozkoušet, protože prvních 30 dní je zdarma.
