Asda Story: Asda Review

StraddenStradden Managing EditorHalifax, NSMember Posts: 6,696 Common

MMORPG.com's Joe Iuliani has been playing GamesCampus' Asda Story and reports back today with his findings on the game.

“Find your Soul Mate”


No this is not an ad for an online dating service; this is the tagline for Asda Story.
Asda Story is a free to download and free to play game brought to you by the folks at Games Campus. The downloading and installation of the game were fairly quick and relatively painless. You do need to create a Games Campus account before you get started, and this account information will also be used to log you into the game. Once downloaded and installed I ran into some trouble starting the game. It took me a couple of attempts to get the game up and running. I installed Asda Story on a Windows Vista Ultimate, Dual Core E6750 @2.66, Dual ATI Radeon HD 3850, with 2 Gig Corsair RAM over a cable modem. Once inside the game, the game play ran very smoothly. The one in-game feature that worked flawlessly was the in-game link to the web based Games Campus market place for all your real cash transactions. Funny how they got that part right. The game controls and dynamics of Asda Story are pretty much the standard of what gamers have come to expect from the majority of fantasy based games. You have your hot bar, a mini map in the upper right corner, chat in the bottom left corner, and general mouse point and click movement.

    Pretty good review.  I expect that players that like the manga style will look into this.  The soul mate system remind me alot of the vassal system in Asheron's Call except that Asheron's call was more a pyramid scheme.

    You mentioned you had trouble starting the game up for the first couple of times. Do you know the reason? Or did you just keep clicking and it started working on its own?

    Never found a concrete reason, a couple reboots later and it kicked on.

    did I see it right? There were bunnies? So how thus this game work? Is this a newly released game or what else? I wish I could try out many mmo games, coz I do really want to meet up with other gamers like me.

    Didn't Ragnarok Online have a marriage system that implemented husband/wife skills or some other nonsense, too? This soul mate system doesn't sound too far off from that.

    Call me cynical, but this game just seems like another copy-paste-micro-payment=instant-cash type of game. Not to say the article was bad; I enjoy reading about pretty much anything, and the review itself was excellent.

    A part of me believes this game actually winds up as a dating service

    Pfft it's not even a sandbox like Tesco Journey 3 is.
