lol you write so much but you are just lvl 16?

i´m not sure if you know about the fact that the level cap will be 300 (its 240 atm) and lvl 16 can be made in 30 minutes... some ppl say its possible to reach lvl 50 in 2 hours. thats fast but better than grinding the whole day without level up.

besides the lvl in zu is not important. important is the pet and your gear. you can beat another player thats 50 level higher than you if you have a senior pet and suit or epic armor and he not.

and how do you wanna know that the skills are lame if you didnt see them? i guess you saw ~5 skills at lvl 16 but there are a few more lol

Zu Online, is very different from modern mmorpgs. It's safe to say, it's one of the best free-to-play mmorpgs on the market. Later in time the game may match up too Pay-To-Play expectations, who knows?

No mmorpg is perfect, there is always flaws, bugs, defects in the game, that players experience. Yes there is some translation errors, just minor things here and there, but for a chinese mmorpg, they did a good job, this game has amazing potential, it's just how the developers play it out, i've seen some of the most amazing games, go down because the developers played it wrong, or they did something to make the players upset, and lose taste, so far, the updates in Zu Online, have been nice..

I don't think the OP played the game enough..

im sorry your a fanboi so you wont understand but its people who you say dont have the right to review a game who keep people like me from wanting to play a game that i will end up deleting in a week.  Thanks for the reviews guys.

p.s. if your going to act like you own this forum at least get your post count up past 1, you know actually participate in this forum.

 

oh and to the other fanbois here....THIS GAME SUCKS...i didnt even have to download and play it to know this...its why those critical reviews are so handy


 

He's talking about REVIEWS, not OPINIONS. Did you read my post up there (I just realised this thread is months old now)?

Some noob who couldn't get past the character creation is entitled to rant, but if he calls it a review we'll laugh him out of here.

Did you actually just drag post count into this? You moron. This isn't the only fucking forum on the planet. He could be one of the vet posters on the official forums for all we know.

If you're gonna be swayed by people posting one-line content-free "omfg this sux0rz!!!!" type of reviews then more power to you, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out. I'm tired of noobs flooding games and if all it takes is a lame "review" like that to flush your kind out then all the better.

I'm mostly with dragulea with this. On the other hand, I don't believe "levels achieved" is a good indicator of how well you know the game either (I've seen games where morons can get afk powerleveled to 60 in like a single day - do you think they've learned anything about the game?). Personally, I usually spend about a week or two on a game, trying several characters, lurking on the forums, and reading guides, before I feel even remotely prepared to write something approximating a review. Why? Because any monkey can type "omfg this sux!", whereas I prefer to read reviews which actually talk about the fucking game content. Which this thread is almost devoid of, if you've been paying attention.

ZU Rocks...been playing for a week and loving the game so far. Keeps getting better with more levels...so you lvl 3's and 10's keep trying harder to put the game down. Maybe if you didn't say your low lvls people would actually believe that the game sucks...which it doesn't of course =)

The game at the beginning is pretty impressive, also pretty interesting. But after you play a while it's getting incredibyly boring. Buying gold makes you god like strong compared to people who does not want to spent money on not even fully released game. Furthermore after reaching lvl ~210-220 you can forget about any sensible questing, the only thing you can do is exp with events, which totally sucks.

 See this is total BS.    Dont come to a user review site and tell people that they have no right to give reviews (unless they are positive) or comment on the game before level X.  People can give reviews here about games no matter how little they have played it.  If you dont like it, go viral advertise elsewhere.

 

I didnt play this game at all.  I just clicked here out of curiosity.  Im glad people gave new player reviews, since thats what most new players will experience.  This game sounds like every other poorly translated aisan f2p.  I believe the people who were bored playing the first 5,10,15 levels.  If a game cant inspire you to stay past the training levels, it isnt worth playing, i dont care which game it is.  Without an epic feel, a certain chemestry between you and the game world,quests, and lore it just feels like any old f2p game, which it probably is.  This is what usually seperates the p2p from the free games, aside from the quality and over abundance of content.

 

 

*edit*

lol....upon further inspection of the screen shots, i have played this before,l think i just made a few characters and tried out the combat and feel of it. it was that good i guess.

Well. i've been playin this game almost 2 year's now. and quit several times(bcuz of work and married). this game is not bad at all. maybe i should say, it's awesome from beginning (maybe can get bored smtimes) and the best thing in zu is, when u reach lvl 240-250. there's the real things await u. it's all about PVP and killing.

i'm summoner lvl 256.and i never spend Real Money on this game. for newbie who wanna try it. goodluck for lvling and for those doesn't like it. u can uninstall it. =)

 

sorry for my bad english.

First of all, a confession: I'm tired of reading the expert reviews of lvl 10 players; if you intend to bash the game, at least spend some time actually playing and testing the game. Being lvl 10 in Zu is nothing: the level cap is 300 and you can get to 25 - 30 in a couple of hours without pushing yourself too hard - jut so you'd understand how much time that dude spent in game... 

Now: IMO Zu has the potential to become one of the most successfu free MMOs on the market but it all depends on what decisions the company will take when going from OB to full release. The situation is like this:

- the graphics are both original and very carefully designed; the maps don't look the same, each having its own type of mobs; characters and mobs look really cool, with a lot of details. They're 3d looking too (from the official photos you get theimpressionthey're 2d, but fortunately it's not the case) - it's just the way Zu is put together (in a cartoonish manner) that makes you see it differently at first.

- the game has a lot of little things that make playing the game a real pleasure and make you relax more than in other MMOs: you have an auto trace for both quests and NPCs (so solving quests or finding a certain NPC is no problem at all), you have teleporting portals and also a flight system (which you'll be using a lot), you also have pets, that are really worth the trouble of leveling up, because they get both stats and skills to buff your character; you get a lot of good drops (many with enhaced attributes that would save you tones of in game money); you also have something worth fighting for when joining a guild: the guild poles which allow the owning guild to afk level its members; last, but not least: various ways to help you level faster - in game events, blessings, double xp items, etc.

- advancement: untill reaching lvl 30, you're safe from pkers. You should take your time and learn the game mechanics and get a general idea, because I'll be honest, the game can get a little confusing at first: there are no stat points (so no super builds or anything like it) - that means your toon's eficiency will depend entirely on the gear you're using and the level (because skills and talents are level based; pets depend on your lvl too - they can't be higher lvl than you, and some of their features are lvl based - you can ride a mount at lvl 40, equip it with items that increase its attributes at 60 and 90, and so on). Xp (at least at lower levels) is achieved entirely from quests (no grinding). You also need to get cooperation points, which can be exchanged for skill books (there are several ways to get them). Like I said, leveling (due to the huge xp from quests) is not a problem (ppl can easily get to 60 or more in the first week of playing). At first the game is super easy, no aggro mobs, easy quests, very good drop rate. As you level and you begin to understand and master the game, it becomes more and more difficult. After reaching lvl 30 you are able to pk/get pked - and tyhat's when you'll discover the 1st "horror" of Zu - it's an all areas pvp game with no safe zones (it's quite shocking, because at first the game has such an enjoyable and peaceful atmosphere, and al of  a sudden, it gets quite brutal) - not even in low maps or starting towns (once you leave the teleporting areas, you're game). Raids are (sadly) a part of the game (some quests even require that you go in other factions' wolds), they're frequent and like I said, pvp is level based, and since there are no "super builds" to compensate the level difference, the higher lvl player always wins. Thus, the 2nd "horror" of Zu: right now, the max allowed level difference is 90 levels! That means someone 90 lvls higher than you can attack you! And after several deaths, you discover the 3rd "horror" of Zu - when you die, there's a chance you'll lose some of the items that you equip (pieces of armor, weapon, etc) - and most annoying, it's random (which means you could lose the most valuable of all). So you're close to discovering the 4th "horror" of Zu: crafting & upgrading costs in Zu are very (VERY) expensive!!! That's why it's not advisable to upgrade gear of lower lvl, you'll end up spending all the money you have for just 2 full upgrades - and money (bones, or silver) are very difficult to obtain in this game (it's the first time I'm having serious cash flow issues and I'm running with just 5 - 10k most of the time). Not to mention everything in this game is quite expensive: pets, gear, pots, you name it; even teleports could drain your account dry (just take several quests in Death World or Miracle Town and you'll waste a lot of money on teleports). So what to do? Well, you have to keep your eyes open for good gear from drops, always keep back up gear in bank, do all the quests - especially the ones that give good gear as reward), spend wisely you talent points and your contribution points to upgrade the skills, etc. It's good to have friends to play with, because you'll get a lot of boss slaying quests that require a party, and it's also good to have someone to watch your back all the time, because there's a a very high chance to run into a pker the minute you step in a training map (especially in Miracle Town and Sky Lake). More to come...

 

I started playing, and the game was HORRIBLE. Even though, when you get past about level 20(takes about 15 minutes of gametime), the game is AMAZING. Mostly because the mobs attack you and MUCH more.

the game is all fine. some dumb people shouldnt post here. If you can't makea  review whit the REAL game's characteristics then its not for you to argue whit someone who can, i loved the posts and also the replies tho i supose Zu is all fine for a f2p. 9.2/10 for Zu Online  in my opinion, and about the community, they only bully you, if you act as a d1ck.
