Aion, or: It's who you know.


Had a 3rd hand aquaintance (some random guy from warhammer forums who trolls my guild vent because he likes us.) Let me in on the fact that Aion has a special promo going on one of it's new chinese servers of a few days of free play to celebrate new servers opening.

It was quite an adventure tracking down the bilingual chinese guy that was willing to set up trial accounts for westerners to test it, as well as installing the chinese client, but I'm about to log into an mmo that will likely not be beta tested in the US and has yet to set an American release date.

Re: Aion, or: It's who you know.


One week in. I'll get to work on a professional review when the event is over. (As professional as a housewife reviewing a game for her guild can be anyway ;D)

So far, without any kind of localization the concensus among most of the americans I've talked to in game and on forums rank Aion at a very solid 8/10.

The art is hand drawn, very detailed and very beautiful. I'm not experiencing any game related lag, which is shocking considering I'm playing on a server on the other side of the world.

I'm still testing multiple classes on both factions, and trying to get an idea what the content is like apart from leveling.

I'll probably give seperate ratings from a powergamer point of view, and a casual gamer point of view.
