Summary: Aion 2.1 made the game a completely different experience. The bit of grind that existed at high levels long ago has been dealt with, Aion is very fun to play now if you are a social active MMORPG gamer. Its still hard though for solo gamer or kids who cant deal with the economy of Aion. Positive to see a game not just lure player with skinner box type gameplay like WoW. New 2.0 questlines are gorgeous and the little story arcs are exciting.
Pros: Great graphics love the way the game looks runs great no lag love the character creation the best i have seen in a rpg
Cons: gold buying seems the aion team turns a blind eye to this its a shame that a lvl 30 toon can rape a lvl 50 toon in pvp just because the lvl 30 buys gold to buy the best gear and the lvl 50 guy plays by the rules turned me off to this game
"Beautiful, fast passed, Skill based Fantasy MMORPG."
26 July 2010
Pros: Beautiful graphics, has some of the most indepth combat in any MMO, very little grinding with the new 1.9 patch, fun quests with a lot of skippable cut-scenes. Amazing PVP system, mostly balanced, and centered on taking over and defending fortresses.
Cons: Not much in the lines of a talent tree type system, uses Stigmas instead. With the recent server merges there seems to be a lot of faction imbalances on several servers. The economy tends to be rather expensive.
Pros: Graphics are amazing. The "Grind" isn't as bad as portrayed in the editors review. Although it is extensive it is nothing compared to WoW where you can expect have atleast 20+ days of gameplay to reach level cap.
Cons: In WoW they had Arena, Where you can play agianst played in three seperate brackets 2v2, 3v3, 5v5; In Aion there is nothing of the sort. The PvP Aion does have is uncompetitive and in a word, lame.
Summary: I give this game a '1' because I can use the 2 discs as coasters. Otherwise this game is about 5 minutes of anticipation. For a good 5 minutes I kept thinking, 'this is going to get better right?'. And no...each minute was more disappointing than the last... They should make inmates in prison play this game as punishment. Instead of breaking rocks they could be grinding quests instead...
Summary: If I wanted nice graphics with poor gameplay, I could get a screensaver. This is without a doubt the worst MMO I've EVER played. The amount of unimaginative grinding is unreal. This game is terribly boring. For all you people who love it, I suspect you are the developers posting comments...or you have very 'unique' taste in games...
Summary: Failed MMO. Leveled a cleric until lvl28 when the grind wall hit. Servers are getting emptier by the day (my entire 80 ppl legion quit after 2 months). Looks like they ported the game to NA/EU market just for the first 25 levels, the rest from 25-50 is the same mindless grind fest as the Korean version.
Summary: Grind, with occasional gank. That is Aion. I played the first two months and leveled to 50, cleared every dungeon, PVPed daily, mastered a craft, and went to (as well as organized) nearly every fort siege on my server. Ultimately, I quit because the game remained the same shallow, mindless grind it was from the start, and because the PVP never evolved from the cheap ganking and zerging you'll encounter as soon as you step foot into the Abyss.
Summary: Fun and exciting leads to boring and unrewarding, sieges boil down to simple zerg fests with no rewards for defending a captured fortress, finding groups in the abyss is hit or miss, you either roll, get rolled, go back and forth near a guard post, or overwhelm the towers and npc so everyone ports out Really, the grind is okay if you have the patience 44 was my limit, considering there isnt much to do other then *try* to find entertaining pvp outside arena or grind 2000...
