OP  1/02/13 11:47:59 PM#22

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.

AoW world builders should be rewarded with some prestigious awards.

Tried this out for a bit, I thought it looked decent enough and it has some interesting concepts, but the combat was dull as can be. The combat felt almost as bad as the combat in FFXIV.

Sure its "dull" when you played for 5 minutes. This how it looks like with leveled skills and when players know what they are doing:

I'm probably in the minority then, to think that video of PvP was terrible and not very engaging. But again, to those that like it, it's all good. You guys like what you like, as do I.

I just made this comment to share my opinion on the matter. And my opinion is that video of PvP isn't very....impressive. To me anyway.

You can turn off select nametags, even NPC only tags can be turned off.  If you are lumping in player's nametags, this is usual for MMOs that don't use instancing.  Sot he nametags don't bother me at all. You must be used to the more recent MMOs that only allow 20 people in a single zone. :P

Graphics aside, I found age of Wushu too contrived and not that entertaining.

It has really good concepts - eve like skill progression, lots of talents and schools to choose from, interesting pvp additions, but the actual gameplay, the fights, the auto path finding option, the constant gifts for staying logged in and other PWI like oddities made me want to quit after a while, simply because it didn't feel like a brutal PVP game like Eve, it felt like another Chinese p2w grinder (with grind being staying online if you're on a free account)

It would have been a lot better if they removed all these little icons from the UI and simplified a few things as well.

Instead, they chose to cram a huge amount of useless junk on your screen, add a few money making tools and charge 30$ for an unifished product with an excuse of "you get to play as much as you want" which is basically what it will be like in 2 months anyway.

In other words, I think it's a bit of a money scam, not a game

The game actually is great. You cant just smash a few buttons and claim a win. I am having a blast running/riding everywhere to gather mats for cooking. But then I like crafting as well as smacking the bad guys.

Exactly my thoughts, after 3 hours of play.

The players that are used to hand-holding, or immediate entitlement need not apply. Almost all the criticisms in this forum could have been solved if the OPs spent 5 minutes in settings and adjusted accordingly.

 

As far as bland game-play.. most games give you very few skills when you enter the game. How is this any different? Considering you can have 7-8 skills per weapon style, 3 weapon styles available to your class, and the ability to learn any other classes weapon style .. not sure what some of the naysayers are smoking...

Well you forget the basic rules of mmorpg trolldom:

1) if I don't like it, it's shit, the worst shit ever made

2) If I don't understand it it's because the game is crap, not because I am lazy and not very smart

3) If you don't agree with me you are a fanboi

That covers 80% of the traffic on this website....

The problem is that its Gameplay and content are WORSE then its graphics. Its fighting system is TERRIBLE . Its a copy paste world of warcraft combat system with auto targeting taken out. From what the game was advertised I was expecting a combat system almost like Overgrowth, free flowing where skill outweighed level grinding. I was expecting a true Martial arts game not this martial arts flavored grind fest. 

Anyone Play Jade Empire? The gameplay in that game FAR outdoes this game. I personally can not stand these kind of "tap 1 through 8 till its dead" borefest skill lacking games.  I am only angry at this game for getting my hopes up and being terrible.

Okay, i guess that's you done with the game now you've made your feelings clear. We who like this game can stay in these forums enjoying the threads and experiance of like minded followers.

It's a free forum and your opinion but i guess after your above comment you've said all you need to say really.

To bad you don't like it but that's okay.

Hope you find the mmo you are looking for.

Bye.

The graphics are average at best, definetely not better then age of conan lol, dont know how you can even say that without being high or something. Played the game for a week or so, all on max settings, so i know what i`m talking about. The more appropriate response would be that the world is one of the most beautifully crafted worlds out there, that is what gives the feeling of belonging to it.

There is so much misinformation and trolling in this thread (and this entire forum) it almost makes me gag.

 

I have a few complaints with the game as well, but im sorry, graphics are stunning in this game and run maxed out at 50 fps. The engine is extremely well done.

 

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