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. It’s not going to be easy for any player, but this game isn’t meant to be completed in a few days.
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.
Excerpt: I never thought that I would find myself playing an MMORPG for several hours, on close to a daily basis. Don't get me wrong, I made sure to not miss exercising at the YMCA three times a week, personal hygiene was not forgotten, and my dietary needs did not include the nutritional wasteland of processed fast food. I made sure my figure did not suffer from my newfound game addiction.
Excerpt: In the battle against World Of Warcraft ’s supremacy over the MMORPG genre, Aion ’s greatest weapon is beauty. It lacks the depth and experienced wisdom of its 4-year-old rival, but Aion manages to make WOW show its age. The graphics are impressive at every level. Enormous serpentine creatures soar through the air; strange elephant-like beasts water themselves in frozen lakes. The combat skills produce vibrant visuals.
Excerpt: Already a phenomenon in Asia, Aion , the MMO game has received a slight facelift for Western markets and easily boasts some of the nicest graphics for a title of this genre. Of course, the release of Aion in Australia and the US is to hopefully extinguish some of the thunder of the World of Warcraft but only time will tell.
Conclusion: Rifting into Morheim One of the cooler types of quests players will receive at higher levels, are spy missions, which essentially refer to rifts that open up in non-PvP areas and locations that transport you to the opposing race's equivalent non-PvP area. Spy missions are usually tackled in groups and vary from simple fetch-quests of certain materials to extracting information from NPCs and finding other key items.
Pros: Great fantasy inspired visuals, Awesome soundtrack apart from the generic battle music, Intuitive combat system, Great co-operative and team based quests, Impressive amount of content
Cons: Intermittent lag issues playing on overseas server, Spamming on chat channels, Bots, Not enough variety in the quest structure brings the grind to the forefront
Excerpt: Jaded by the current crop of MMORPG's? Tired of the endless band aids in the form of patches designed to disguise the boredom? Sick of the grind? Come over to the all new world of Aion and experience the art of MMORPG at a new level.
Pros: By far and away the most stunning graphics you will ever see in a MMORPG. Lots of depth and some well thought out quests that make levelling a journey rather than a grind.
Cons: Only two races and one starting point for each. At its heart it is a PvP orientated game although this does not become apparent until later levels.
Conclusion: Aion ist für mich persönlich das beste MMO, sogar besser als WoW. Warum? Ganz einfach, ich mag den asiatischen Stil und ich stehe auf PvP. Na klar, die Quests sind eintönig und langweilig und wenn man sich keine Legion oder oft neue Gruppen sucht, kommt man schnell nicht weiter, doch sobald man einmal mit einer ordentlichen Gruppe ausgeteilt hat, möchte man nicht mehr aufhören.
Pros: Genialer PvP, Asia-Stil, Super Grafik, Sammelsucht, Ordentliches Balancing
Cons: Stupide Quests, Asia-Stil, PvP quasi Pflicht, für Neueunsteiger anfangs etwas groß und verwirrend, Hardwarehungrig
