I tried to get into it, what people described sounded so good. I played it and the second I got in I noticed it did look a little dated, but usually I can give a pass on graphics. So continuing in I noticed it felt so generic. Not because of the graphics, just how it played. The combat was somewhat cool the blocking with the right mouse and having skills to break certain things. Auto running to NPC's is a joke and I have hated that in every game that has had it. But even with the cool combat it still managed to feel so damn generic. I thought that maybe it was just the beginning but it never grew on me. Oh well I hope it succeeds, people seem to like it  a lot.

AoW's graphics are fine.  I think it is a very pretty game.  Graphics are a trade off if you want more gameplay.

That really isn't true at all.  You can have both, it just raises the system requirements and required dev skills.  Has nothing to do with some design decision to choose gameplay rather than graphics.

Threads like this, which are completely false, should be deleted. Its kinda pathetic.

Wrong forum i'm afraid. If it would of been that other forum of that mmo that get's a write up everyday, even twice day by these mods it would of been closed four pages ago.

This game is far from generic. However, you'll need to spend some time with it before you experience its unique features. Far too many people seem to log on, complain about "dated" graphics (which is bizarre imho since the game is beautiful and very well optimized), run around trying to fight some stuff, get confused and bored when the game doesn't hold their hand, and then log off after an hour or so. 

I agree that autorunning sucks in a way, but it's also pretty convenient in a world with 40 000 NPCs.

So, here's the thing about the graphics. Some games model 1 house so perfectly that you're in awe. But then they take that one house and make every house on the block look like it. Same with trees, and other art assests.

 

Get in an official stage-coach and take a ride across the map. look out at what you see.  I think you might be surprised at how good this game really is graphics wise.

 

P.s. I started off in Jiming Posthouse. I thought the graphics were kind of blah. Some zones are like that. Others, are spectacular.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

The graphics were just about EQ1 well below EQ2, the game play was a mixture of World of warcraft meets Tera where it took the worst of both and slammed them together in a fireball. The "Flying" in the game was terrible with most of the jump abillities being unintuitive and not usefull, See that building over there? want to run up its wall and jump on its roof using your wall run abillity? Make a gamble with the jump gods cause there is a 75% chance that the invisible walls will knock you off or the jump will not execute.

 

The gameplay has fake depth, yes it offers many many styles that seem really cool but they all require EVE reminiscent  time periods to unlock and use, even then they are mostly just new look but not really different. It all feels like perfect world to me witch is a HORRIBLE feeling.

 

Oh and I paid money for Age of Wushu. I was super hyped and really really wanted to play it. Having played it, it destroyed my "omg new game" glasses and left only a lonely sadness.

Friends dont Friends try niche indie games.

 

Go Triple-A or go home.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

For all those people that argue that graphics don't make the game. Well if the graphics are shit, or unorganized and not cosmetically appealling, most of the game players (who very much appreciate well planned out graphics) will not like the game.

 

And its not really the graphics, the graphics are okay. Its the fact that you log in to the game world and see 500 million name tags on your screen. I remembered that back in the early 2000s for mmos. Usually asian mmos or mmos that are rushed during development have that sort of name tagging. In my eyes it looks so ugly like that. I downloaded AOW and as soon as i saw all those name tags all scattered about my screen i logged off. Uninstalled and deleted the RAR file.

Waste of bandwidth

 

**EDIT

And for the future posters who will say turn off the name tags, i say: that will be very confusing to play without knowing which NPC or player you are talking to. First impressions are very important in anything, the first impression I got after see all those name tags wasn't good.

Pretty sad reason for not playing AOW. The game is beautiful. The name tags don't bug me one bit and can't see how thats a big deal. If  thats your only complaint which is a very very small one why post and say the game looks like its from 2004? which isn't even close.

Please for gods sake do not tell me you are still using Windows XP. You have much bigger problems than trying to get better graphics in an MMO.

I'm so tired of people saying this.  I guess if you say it enough people take it as fact.
