Aion (PC)

 

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...

Aion MMO- PC

 

When I first learned that I was going to be reviewing Aion, I was a little worried. Writing about an MMO is a difficult task, because even small ones are always too enormous to fully experience; it's just too easy to leave out something important. I...

Assigning a grade to an MMO is an excruciatingly painful task. I’ve spent hours trying to come to some sort of a reasonable conclusion. As far as I’m concerned, World of Warcraft is a 4-star game, and since I like it a bit better than Aion, I’m...

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.

Visuals impress both technically and artistically ; First 10 to 12 levels are a joy to play ; Fast-paced and intuitive combat system

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

Teeming With Potential

An easier way to report bots and ad shops btw is to take SSs of them and then email those (with tour account, server and character name) to support@ncsoft.com or to login to the "My Stuff" tab on the support page and Ncsoft.com and then put in your...

Aion takes a high-flying approach to an otherwise familiar formula.

Winged flight adds twist to MMO travel / combat; attractive visuals; PvPvE a good incentive to slog through grind

Not enough quests to carry you through to endgame without having to repeatedly grind through levels

Expert review by:

Aion Review

 

Aion starts out well, but then slows down into a grind that only serves to highlight other areas of concern

Character creation and the flight dynamic are definitely worth a look, but the main problem is that while the gameplay is inviting enough initially, it starts to bog down as you near level 20 and there are not as many quests. You may find yourself...

Aion: Tower of Eternity Review

 

Grind Party. With wings.

Single Aerial PVP combat; flying is cool

Flying is severely limited; extremely harsh money sinks at every corner; not enough quests. Oh, and the grind. The grind. The grind

If you play MMORPGs for the journey and the storyline, then Aion: the Tower of Eternity is not for you. There aren't enough quests to engage you in the story, and spending days grinding mobs just to level is not something many people relish doing. The...

Aion: Tower of Eternity Review for the PC

 

Whatever happened to age and experience before beauty?

Truly beautiful graphics; Nice sound and music

Haphazard class balance; Grindstone, meet face

Expert review by:

Aion

 

A new  MMORPG puts a fresh coat of paint on a familiar genre.

It’s still too early to judge Aion's endgame content, but that may be the true test of whether the game will have real staying power, or be just another passing pretty face.

Reviewing an MMO is like taking a ride in a supercar. It's fun at first. Everything is all shiny and new. Promotional material is glossy, promising to provide you with everything you need for an amazing experience. You step in, boot things up and take...

On its own merits, Aion is a supremely impressive MMO that should appeal to both casual and veteran players alike.
