TERA

Thunderbolt Games
16 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Combat in MMOs sucks. Really, it does. You run over to the general vicinity of the creature you wish to smite with your Axe of Righteousness, Raging Fireball or Hammer of Doom, hit the tab key, and then proceed to methodically tap other keys, oftentimes while barely engaged in the on-screen action. Did your spouse walk in and start talking to you in the middle of the fight?

Tera

  • Conclusion: Tera will be remembered for two things: art and its implementation of a combat experience unique to the genre. But the use of familiar MMO tropes feels somewhat uninspired. From the beginning, taking down monsters and levelling up is easy and only after the player leaves the Island of Dawn do monsters pose more of a challenge, but the biggest enemy you’ll have to contend with is boredom.

TERA Review

G4
8 May 2012
  • Summary: If you're looking for a new fantasy MMO, look no further than TERA. With a fresh take on combat that forgoes a targeting system in favor of a simple crosshair, the game shines in both the visual and gameplay department.
  • Pros: Intuitive and fun combat system that never gets old, Familiar yet unique interface, BIG ASS MONSTERS everywhere
  • Cons: A couple of fairly frustrating classes, Every female character looks a little, well, slutty, Some really stupid early quests

TERA

The Gamers Temple
7 April 2012
  • Excerpt: TERA strives to be a different kind of MMORPG, one that replaces the genre's passive style of combat for one that more closely resembles that of an action game. Does it succeed in its goal of shaking up the genre? And, more importantly, is the action-oriented combat enough of a change to warrant committing your time to a new MMORPG?

Tera PC Review

DarkZero
23 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) are in a bit of a pickle at the moment. Apart from World of Warcraft (which is not at its peak anymore – just look at the dropped users), most MMORPGs are seemingly having to turn to free-to-play methods to keep the income coming in to cover costs of servers and other expenses.

TERA (PC) Review

zConnection International
17 May 2012
  • Conclusion: TERA is a fantastic game, a quality entry in a genre that doesn’t often do very much different. It’s subscription-based and has an initial fee to get into the game, which will probably put off some people straight away; with that said, I don’t think there’s anything on the free-to-play scene doing what TERA is doing, although its popularity means that somebody somewhere has inevitably started to work on it.
