who ever wrote that must be a loser
92%, ohoho... let's hope the author got paid well xD
Clearly this is written by a funboyz. The reviewer gave Tera an 85% for Story? Seriously?
He also said he didnt mind the repetative questing, which is clearly a lie (i dont care who you are, by the time you are 40 you cannot say that questing in Tera is not god-awful with a straight face).
I thought it was fair review. While some of us may disgree with one point or another (which is no different than any review you'll ever read throughout your entire life) he clearly highlighted the major acheivements of Tera and outlined some areas of improvement. I don't see where the previous posters (nay-sayers) are getting the impression that the author is a "fan-boy" or was "bribed" to write the review.
Perhaps you should've read his review with the objectivity with which the review was written....
I think that was a rather honest review. Sure the questing/storying telling isn't as great as SWTOR. However that method of questing has been used for years and is a tried and true method. People are now seeing that SWTOR's method is what players want. The era of MMOs is finally changing, thanks to a select few that broke out of the norm. Tera is one of them that has set the bar. The reviewer did an excite job of retelling the story of Tera, ashame so few actually read it.
You can't argue that everything else they rated was spot on. Graphics, sounds, gameplay, control, was all rated 90% and up. They were honested about the crappy crafting system and did tell you how bad some of the cinema voice acting actually is compare to the witty remarks that the NPCs make.
So to me it was a rather honest review. At least better than the [filtered] that IGN cooked up.
Funny how when it's IGN you get posts like "oh they are paid" "Reviewer doesn't even like MMO's" and "GW2 fanboy" and then some rush to defend it
Then when it's like this you get "oh they are paid" "Tera Fanboy" and "Reviewer doesn't even know what good mmo's are" etc and some rush to defend it.
Reviews are subjective. God forbid someone that writes reviews actually likes the game just because you don't. I can tell you for sure, this game far exceeded my personal expectations and I have a lot of fun playing and will continue till such a time as I am no longer having fun.
I don't see why that concept is so hard for people to grasp.
Since Tera gets a lot of backlash on story and questing, I am really, really curious as to what current MMO gets a 10 on story and questing.
I am not saying Tera does not get repetitive quests but in all honesty, if Tera has such horrible story and quest system, what current MMO is played because it has great storyline and questing?
What is the standard we are using to measure MMO grinding?
