OP  6/05/12 12:11:37 PM#1

Tera is an advertised game of true action combat.

 

I have to say that the combat system is decent and fun to play with, but that is all it has and NOTHING more. The rest of the game is boring, and has nothing to offer. It is a typical grind fest that is killing the game.

 

The new nexus system is a stolen rift system from RIFT and they failed badly with it. It is nothing but a MAJOR lag/grind fest.

 

Tera = Terabad, Terafail and a horrible game.

 

I already got a refund and will never play the game again. The world is empty once you hit level 60, there is nothing to do.

They just need to add the pvp element, the combat and pvp are a blast, but they need to add the bgs or something to create owpvp

 Yeah, the world is most active at level 1-15 and 60 so OP saying it's empty at 60 confuses me...

 

Also yeah the Nexus is a lagfest, but it creates PvP afterwards with everyone being around at the same time.

 

I also wonder if the game was so bad why would OP play to 60... -.-

TERA is very misleading.

TERA is a  korean MMO and should be a grindfest... What the hell do I have so many quests to do I can skip entire zones?

TERA is labaled as "true action combat".... Why do I get punished for attacking when I should be evading attacks? This is complete and utter bullshit!

TERA said it has endgame content.... What are those lvl 60 dungeons and hardmodes supposed to do for me? I can't beat them! Nexus has too many players and lags my computer! 

TERA is very misleading, indeed.  Most players will not get beyond lvl 20 after being belly flopped by a basilisk and blaming the games combat for their lack of judgement, and reflex skills.  A LOT of people are failing to complete hardmodes because they simply aren't good enough. Gear helps in TERA but best gear won't make a crappy tank block any better.  There are skill checks and players will hit a cap where they either need to get better at the game stop progressing.

  TERA is misleading! I thought they game was GW2.

I seriously doubt more than a dozen people have quit TERA because the low levels were 'too hard'.

 

Also, when Cataclysm launched many people said heroic dungeons were too hard, so the fact that someone cant complete a hard mode in TERA says nothing about the games supposed difficulty.

 

Get over yourself already.  TERA is not Dark Souls (which itself also isnt as hard as advertised)

So you say the combat system is decent and thats it.

Nice review on your behalf. 

Please just stick to gaming, cause apparently you can't review a game correctly.

My thoughts exactly, playing to 60 and saying the game isn't his or her cup of tea.

If true, I guess they were trying to get their moneys worth.

I find humor in the OP's so called review.

I'm curious about this game refund thing, because I have never seen it done in my country(save for specific cases). How does this work? Does one just walk in the store and return the game they bought simply because they didn't like it, and the shop will timidly refund you? It sounds too one sided and could set up the store to bankrupcy. I'm more used to a "buy at your own risk" policy, which kinda makes more sense because as a buyer I should be knowledgable enough of what I want. If the store provided misleading information about the product they're selling then that's a valid ground for a refund.

Sorry for a bit off the topic. A PM would do fine.

The OP is full of crap.

 

After he played the game to lvl60 he got a refund cos he didnt like the game ....yeah sure!!

 

I've been playing now for over a month and not yet 60, playing the game and enjoying the enviroment day by day not rushing anywhere altough i have a lot of guildm8's they each have 2 or 3 characters lvl 60 and they still play the game and enjoy it.

 

No game out there delivers 100% but Tera is something I and my friends never ever tried and/or seen before.

 

The money is well worth it !

If you did your research you would of come to this conclusion earlier.

Im calling BS on the OP.

 

Played the game untill level 60 and they gave him a refund...

 

Ok i can understand getting a refund after a couple days or a week but playing the entire scope of the games content then asking for a refund doesnt sound likely.

 

Ill spare the of so common movie comparison.

 

I found the games combat was one of my favorite combat systems that doesnt utilize tab target...much more entertaining than the FPS style.  Game was beautiful to play in...combained with the fun combat was a joy to play.

I wont sit here and tell you that this was anything more than that.  Its a mediocre themepark at best when it comes to actual content.  They have a lot of room to improve.

I just got finished playing the Java version of the TERA GAME DEMO and it was an interesting experience. The combat is a little awkward for me but I am sure I could get used to it. I was using a keypad so a controller may be better. My first impression is a good one although I did not get very far until I was prompted to buy the game. The graphics are good and the movement is exciting. My son may buy it so I think  I will wait to see what he thinks and also will be able to get a better look at the game at that time. I like the action games but I am not very good at them but Tera has sparked my interest.

Here is a quote from a member of the TERA forums about level 60 gameplay

 

Here is life at max level in this game:


1) Run the same dungeons a billion times
2) Enchant the gear you got to +9 or +12
3) Farm thousands upon thousands of gold for step 2
4) Grind rep from dailies to get better jewelry and zyrks
5) Do ToT a million times for glyphs
6) Run for Vanarch which is a thankless, worthless, and unrewarding job
7) Do Nexus for rep which is a horrid lagfest and grind
8) Random world pvp or GVG with no purpose or reward

This game at 60 just plain sucks. It really does.

 

I want structued PvP in this game...and sooner than later so I can resub.

It is all about what each of us like I guess. I quit after a week. ;-/ I may start it again when they add some more content. Currently I would choose Aion over Tera.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
