Like many folks i am waiting for one of the new mmos incoming. During my wait i decided to return to an old haunt AOC. Like many folks i was really annoyed at the AOC launch for many reasons and left shortly after the debacle. I believe i returned 1 or 2 times within its first year with little improvement noted.
However, things have changed the game has come a long way. The ris of the god slayer expansion puts some real meat on the bones of AOC and does a great job in providing atmosphere and immersion for the player. The Robert E Howard lore shines through and an adult gritty theme is really achieved.
Performance is also hugely improved and the game is a joy to behold retaining wonderful visuals and animations. The game has great attention t detail in the open world and feels alive.
Combat, this surprised me i forgot how good it is, having been testing TERA for months i was sold on this feature, however i honestly believe AOC combat is far superior and has greater depth, hard to master but very rewarding, fatalitys rock!
Overall i am enjoying myself so much i have subbed for 3 months, the game has real depth and challenge and is a real joy to play. Initially i loaded up and tinkered around a few days using the ftp model, sorting out all the gfx options tweaking everything until i was totally happy. I recommend anybody returning does this to ensure your happy.
I cant rate this game highly enough now, funcom have really turned the game around, monthly development updates keep the communication between devs and fanbase alive and with so much to do ingame it for me at least is great fun returning to Hyboria!!
