Eligium: Our Official Eligium Review

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,585MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Eligium is Frogster's entry into the browser F2P market. Now that we have put Eligium through its paces, we've got thoughts to share about the game. See what we thought in our latest review and then let us know what you think in the comments.

Brought to us by German publisher Frogster Interactive, Eligium is a free-to-play (F2P) fantasy MMORPG from Chinese developers Goldcool. Upon hearing this, many people may be quick to jump to negative conclusions and dismiss this game as just another cookie cutter MMORPG. However, there are a few things that Eligium does to set itself apart from the sea of F2P contenders out there. Whether those are enough to save it from mediocrity, is a matter of opinion.

    I'm sorry, but did you say legalized botting as a pro? Isn't the point of a game to PLAY it? If the game sucks so hard that botting is considered a pro, I think the score is a bit high don't you? People are so goddamn lazy it hurts my brain.

    Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2,

    Not a fan of Chinese MMO's. I just can't get into them. F2P helps a little bit but not enough to make me want to download it, especially after reading the article.

    Is this the only game anyone knows of that has had legalized Botting? I don't know of any others. I don't know what other ganme to reference that to to understand how that would work.

    The sooner you fall behind the more time you have to catch up.

    Botting of any kind, legal or illegal, kills a game for me. I got my fill early on that in Lineage 2.

    What was that game that played for you when you were offline? Jade Dynasty, perhaps?

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    Granado Espada has a built-in botting mode as well, surprisingly the game sucks.

  • ShadanwolfShadanwolf Posts: 2,114Member Uncommon

    I think giving the game a #6 is being kind.Nothing wrong with being kind.For me..I don't think I could stand the game for even an hour.

  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,533Member Uncommon

    LOL a legal bot system... well if the realised that the game was so boring it needed a bot system why in hell did they not fix the game and stop it being boring..

    The next gen of games will have an Auto-Play feature. You don't even have to  log in, you set up an account and you get a daily email giving you daily status updates of your character's progression. P2W will get easier than ever.

    Shouldn't that company be called, Goldfarm?

  • SythionSythion Salem, ORPosts: 422Member

    You know that a game's good when two of its "pros" are redudant features and legalized botting.

    How the bleep could you guys give this game a 6? That's a D! That's a PASSING GRADE.

    Shame on you MMORPG.com.

    Games like this should not even be reviewed here.

    It has to many bugs..Some of the quest are incomplete.If you can speak the 199 different language in the chat window, god knows what they babble about.Some of the games is still written in Chinese or what ever Asian language it is..Player population is Low to medium.Thats if you want to count the botters and those who sell when not at there pc...

    Game rate is a 4...Compare to other Asian games

    I retired retroactively..Haha

    They probably paid for some advertising on the site.

  • Dekarx12Dekarx12 SydneyPosts: 374Member Uncommon

  • DurrayDurray NorwichPosts: 174Member Uncommon

    Yes this is a bad game but how can you give this a 6/10 for graphics and that piece of eye gouging horror that is SWTOR 9/10?! Is there any consistency here?

  • eddieg50eddieg50 Tolland, CTPosts: 1,613Member Uncommon

    No offense but when you put legallized botting as a pro it is time for mmorpg.com to find a new reviewer

  • OzmodanOzmodan Hilliard, OHPosts: 7,183Member Uncommon

    Games that allow botting are just something I will not touch, no matter how good.  It is an immediate zero score.

    And I completely agree with the above poster, scratch that reviewer, FAST!

  • LostarLostar Johnstown, PAPosts: 901Member

    This game got a 6.0???!!! Shame on you MMORPG.com.  How much did they pay you?


     

  • JimyHumuHumuJimyHumuHumu BilbaoPosts: 250Member

     So... they made a bot to make grind more bareable...? Why the heck did they have to make it so grindy that it needs bot at the first place? Dear lord whats up with those devs nowadays.

    ^Pure genius^ and gave me quite a good laugh! Just mho, but the gold spammers will quite likely have free-reign, here.

    Also:

     














    Cons

     

    image Bugs, lots of bugs

    image Extensive reuse of some content

    image Lack of an in-depth story

    image Low quality localization

    Frogster's name is on it.

     

    Pass.

  • DakirnDakirn Kansas City, MOPosts: 374Member Uncommon

    I had to double check that it was still May and not April 1st.

    Seriously.. this game gets a 6 and has botting as a pro?

    Why has the quality of reviews gone down so much?  This almost seems like a paid review.
