Albion Online Review

cagancagan Member UncommonPosts: 445
I decided to give this a shot and installed it since I do not have any games I like right now.
-Did not like the graphics at all. My wife saw my screen and said "Are you playing one of the old classic games again?"
-Server is laggy, the combat is laggy.
-The combat system sucks. You have 3-4 abilities and keep spamming it. I felt like I was playing League Of Legends.
-I do not grind hours after hours in LOL to play a game, the grind in this game is really LOONNNG. Only way to avoid is cash shop.
-Not still based but zerg based combat.
-I did like the fishing system, where you actually have to throw your line at the fish.
-Played 8-9 hours. felt like playing black desert online back in 1990 with worse graphics and worse combat.
-Uninstalled

    Cool story bro! LOL - I love the graphics.  your negatives are positives for other peeps.  There was no lag before F2P and now this is some..... to be expected with the radical population increase.

    Not all negatives are positive, there is still the game breaking bug for new people that won't allow you to drop the tutorial quest or take new quests if you crashed during the tutorial.

    I started Valkyria Chronicles yesterday and it is pretty good, the story is great so far, combat and tactics are fun and do not have to grind 100+ hours. Yes, it is single player but the story makes up for it.

    That was my opinion, i still think the game is a mobile game that failed to launch at app store, did not make it in B2P so trying to make it F2P with cash store now... not my piece of cake. I loved FF14 but this is nothing like it. It really think this is a mobile game....

    Do not even try smthg like GW2 or FF14 or even WOW if you like those graphics, you will never come back after playing any decent game that launched after 2004. Try some other mobile MMO's just like this one if you like ALbion, because it is a MOBILE game

    Most of it is opinion based, which is 100% not considered news at all. You can take it for whatever you want, but just because someone doesn't share the same opinion doesn't mean they should be shouted down.

    I am pretty sure I played LOL, i have around 30-35 heroes. But then again you should know better than me. I still say combat systemis like LOL, 3-4 keys/abilites. That was meant to be for a mobile game that failed to launch

    I disagree! BOO THIS MAN!!! >:)

    Meh, tried the game, wasn't real impressed with its performance, I'll give it another look see in about a month.

    "You have kept me at your beck and call for fifteen years. I shall never again do what you demand of me. By every rule of single combat, from this moment your life belongs to me. Is that not correct? Then I shall simply declare you dead. In all of your dealings with me, you'll do me the courtesy to conduct yourself as a dead man. I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine."

    I can't tolerate the view and controls. The graphics are not bad, but ugly. At least the animations make sense and don't feel bad. Everything else might be great, but I can't get past any of that.

    Also I'll add that I bought one of the founders packs before it released and I'm fine with that. I don't mind supporting indies even if I end up not liking the games.

    I had no idea Albion Online had so many fanboys. 

    There is a real reason this game had to go free to play ya know...and it isn't because it's great...regardless of how great you think it is.

    Thanx for support Viper :)
    I really didn't want to post under a "SPONSORED" post, but leave it here under the game forum as a neutral reviewer. Like many people said, the game did not make it, and most likely all these people will quit which came with F2P seeing there is nothing to do but just pointless PVP and grind after 1-2 more months. I also said Bless Online is a bad game before it went F2P, i got crucified by fanboys, we all know where Bless Online is now, this game is also on its way there, just give it few more months. Then again this game is an AWESOME mobile game, i would have bought this on my phone, but sorry not for pc...

    You guys should not be knocking him for posting his opinions.  That is why people come to these forums sometimes, to see what other people think who have tried a particular game.

    With that being said, I gave Albion a try shortly after it launched.  I played really hard for about 2 months and really felt I got my money's worth out of the game.  Ultimately it wasn't something for me long term because of the pvp centric mechanics, but I still thought it was good.

    To any of you on the fence about trying it, it is well worth it, especially now that it is free.  Like I said I got a good couple of months play out of it and if you are really into pvp, it maybe something you will stick with long term.

    The graphics are literally minimalized to play on mobile. It's clearly not just the art style.

    Well I gave the game a shot and it's very underwhelming and it feels very simple.

    The tile sets really bother me - it ruins the immersion for me.

    I find the combat very simple and really boring. Having a few simple abilities that's what kills it for me.

    Playing mobile ports onto pc - just doesn't work for me.

    Lesson learned.
