Ok, so F2P on Steam. I thought the graphics looked halfway pretty, and it's free, so decided to DL and give it a shot.
Currently a L30 Guardian, so not a lot of experience in this game.
Feels a lot like most other Asian F2P titles. A bit more forgiving early on (probably to cater to the West).
What I like so far:
Graphics are pretty.
Combat has potential
Pets and Mounts available all over
Various buffs for grouping
Has class roles - not far enough along in the game to see how these work out yet though
Early dungeons are accessible even solo
What I don't like:
I can't understand all the different currencies
Armor/Weapons have way to many upgrade mechanics
No diversity in questing
Skills are released so slowly, tactics are pretty useless until you have opened up enough skills to overcome the CD period
The idea of tactics juggling is good, but the implementation feels clunky/slow
Chains trigger off odd key combos - if that is configurable I haven't found it yet
Localization of voice acting is hit or miss
Occasional severe slowdowns in frame rate
As a F2P game, I'm pretty forgiving of a lot of flaws. As a purchase/sub, this game would be horrible, and I'm very thankful I waited after the initial release. For F2P, though, I'm actually enjoying myself right now. There's no commitment involved - the game isn't perfect, but if I decide to stop playing tomorrow, I won't feel badly about it.
But for now, it's entertaining. I could see it being a lot more fun with a steady group - but that's true of most games.
