First Impressions - Aion -

With the head start already under way,'s Sean Bulger writes his first impressions of the highly anticipated game.

The latest game from NCSoft to hit the market is the MMO-with-wings, Aion. Set in a world, quite literally, torn asunder, players join one of two factions to participate in an on-going war between an ancient enemy, and each other. While still set in a fantasy world like most MMOs, Aion presents itself with a fairly interesting setting. It also promises high quality gameplay, a lot of polish, and even some intense PvP with a twist.

Of course, many games have promised very similar things in recent years, but such promises are difficult ones to achieve, and more than one development studio has been burned because of that. Having already spent a year in release in Korea and China, Aion has a step up on that, at the very least. However, Eastern MMOs don't always catch on so well in Western markets.

Luckily, I was able to take a peek into the world of Atreia for the duration of the open beta week to get a better feel for the game.
