Rated 4 out of 10 by Kiryu1337 Eh Theres a reason WoW dominates MMO's
I'm a huge gamer and this isnt something i enjoy
I do enjoy how they have put in these new game futures.
Aiming? I mean come on... You cant put that in a MMO. It's just not a smart idea. Its fun at first but it gets really irritating.
I do play WoW and SWTOR. What makes an mmo great is simply gameplay. You spend way to much time on MMO's to have to always focus.
I forgot the game that game out before that had aiming and the features in this game, but it lasted a month. then died.
I've played this and it would be a good game if it was free to play. MMO's shouldnt have these features that this game does right now. Like i said theres a reason why WoW will always dominate MMO's till another game comes along that understand how people like to play MMO's other then it getting boring because of the combat system its a solid game like most games that come out. BUT its not the kind of game I' can stick to due to the controls. A great attempt though
Rated 0 out of 10 by Pravius48003 Very excited for this.
Let me start by prefacing that I have been playing MMO's since 1999. That is not an egotistical remark either! I literally have played every mmo since EQ. They all seem to be the same ol grind with different art styles, some cool features thrown in here and there to make them their own.
The reason why this game intrigues me so much is because of the combat system, it forces you to pay attention! It also encourages skill based play as opposed to gear based play. You could have the best gear in the game but if you are not paying attention or dont know how to play your class, you will lose.
In addition to this there are several other features in this game that I am looking forward to. Also the fact that I am completely obsessed with JRPG's and this is close to the same style as those. If you are looking for a different style mmo and are bored with the current face and click mmo give this a try.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Corpito This game is just plain awesome!
I have Played alot of MMORPGs in my day from WoW to F2P games like Aika online or Vindictus. But this game just blew me away. I have been playing it almost non-stop since day of release. PvP in this game is funner than in any other MMO ive played before actually requiring you to dodge your opponent predict his movements. This game has no lock-on, Instead you use the crosshairs in the middle of the screen which is very easy to get used to. Your attacks can hit multiple enemies and you are also able to chain skills together. You can also set up your own chain combos however you like, using the spacebar to activate chained skills. This game has cutscenes every now and then and the story actually has my attention unlike most other MMOs. this game now has a 7-day free trial period which i highly recommend. this game has my vote for best MMORPG
Rated 6 out of 10 by Flare My Honest Opinion
Okay, so first impression - This game is going to be awesome! When you log in it seems just like that. Although there are a couple problems Tera still has that needs to be fixed. The graphics are almost up to par to Final fantasy's XIV, but the difference is Tera lags a lot worse! I bought a brand new graphic card and it handles XIV smoothly, but Tera not as much. In addition the movement even on low graphics is Choppy in this game. When I do movements with my character it looks like theres only 8 directions. The common left, right, up, down, and the corners. It's not fluid in that aspect. I did some research and found that the UI is partially to blame. I turned the UI off and it actually lagged a lot less! That's a huge problem. Personally I decided I cannot play a game that lags because of simple problems and does not run smoothly on a more than exceptional graphics card. There are good things about this game for example the blocking, being able to use a ps3 controller (loved that part), and the variety of classes and races. Until they fix the moving choppiness and upgrade with an expansion I would not pick this game up again.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Azelas90 Looks incredibly engaging!
Having 10 years of MMO experience under my belt, I must say, I enjoy seeing more, and more developers step outside the box with their newer MMO's. The combat system in Tera looks really fun, and engaging. It is action oriented, unlike a lot of traditional MMO's. I can see playing Tera will demand my focus, whereas I can literally play most other mmo's half asleep. Aside from combat, the rest of Tera looks just as amazing. Everything from the beautiful environments, to the interesting races, and classes. Although, in my opinion, female character models are too sexy with apparel that is far too revealing. I have a feeling there will be significantly more female characters, despite which gender the player actually is. That's a KRPG for you... In closing, If I were to rate my anticipation for this game, it would be a 8.9/10. Nearly on par with Guild Wars. The reason I say nearly, is strictly due to personal preferences. As much as I love Eastern style MMO's, I like Western style MMO's better. In my opinion, Eastern MMO's and RPG,s are more imaginative, and have more eye candy lol. While Western MMO's are deeper, and more believable. That is all.

Rated 0 out of 10 by Skeletore Best MMO since Ultima Online!
This mmo is the best one since Ultima Online. There are no lame sides and you can attack anyone from any race! The experience is awesome because when I pve or pvp it feels like a shooter game only I am throwing fireballs or shooting arrows instead of bullets. They also did a awesome job with the cross hair/shooter aspect by not taking away from the rpg/mmo elements. It's like a game with the best elements from both worlds. The game play is more fluid, the battles are more immersive because you don't just stand there and auto target with tab which is so lame. If you use a skill and the cross hair is not on your target it misses every time. When I pvp I am actually running around, dodging, ducking, jumping while using skills and trying to keep the crosshair on the target just like a shooter. However, they flawlessly implemented this without taking away from the RPG elements. The crafting system is the best I have seen yet plus it's a nice and bloody game with a mature rating. I max every setting and get 60fps+, less then 100ping, and the game looks beautiful. The servers are always up with no crashes and it's a solid reliable platform. For a brand new MMO they did a amazing job.
Rated 0 out of 10 by galacticdeath AMAZING
I am not sure why gamestop wont let people review this game when the open beta started but what ever right? Okay so i played through the open beta and it was amazing. The game starts you out on a island at level 20 and gives you the basics of the game like a tutorial but everything that happens while you are on that island is part of the main story line. You were part of the first expedition to the island and were the only survivor. After the end of the tutorial you get knocked out and it then shows you going back to the island as a level 1 character in a sort cinematic sort of explaining what happened. Now this is where the real game play starts. As a normal MMO you start doing quests. As you go along doing the quest you find more and more about the argon threat and at the end of every main storyline area you do a dungeon and defeat a boss you have to fight to continue. All along the way you get to see short cinematics during the main story. This has been one of the few games i have truly enjoyed in a long time and i am going to give it a 10/10. Oh and by the way the reviews online before April 2012 will be of the Korean and the American version had a lot of things added to it to make it much better than its counterpart.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Quorra Addicted to Tera
My boyfriend says, "My girlfriend's first MMO addiction." I played WoW for a bit and I didn't last too long playing that game, I stopped playing when I reached around level 20. I'm not saying WoW is a bad game, but it wasn't for me (my boyfriend played it years). As for Tera I was definitely drawn in by the graphic design and gameplay. I love anime so I was drawn into the Elins and the Castanics are visually appealing. I think all the other races are unique. The character design has so many customizable choices from hair-face-skin-voice. My boyfriend wasn't sure at first about this Free-to-Play game. However, he really likes this F2P because in his opinion, he has played lots of F2P, and they limit you to chatting-playing-quests etc. This F2P doesn't really have much limitation. You get 2 character slots, can complete any quests, and talk to people, and there are bonuses to signing up. And I believe there is no leveling up limitation. If you buy the game, which is not sold anymore/rare you get 8 character slots, mount, and other bonuses. Gamestop is one of the last places to carry a few in store. I happened to buy the last copies at two different stores. Subscription gives you quest, mount, fiery halo, and other bonuses.
Rated 6 out of 10 by manwiththeplan it fun but not very good
first of all tera is nothing like world of warcraft so stop comparing them. tera's big thing is that it has action style combat system witch i wold love to see in more mmos but you will quickly get tired of it. the game is plain beautiful witch means it may no run for some so download the 7 day trail to see if you can run it. tera misses out on the biggest part of a mmo the story. the story just is not engaging and doent make me feel like im in a fantasy world but a guy playing on his computer and i started just skipping all the text. the fact that it cost 40 buck and another 15 per month doesnt feel worth it if you can get past the repetive combat and the non-engaging story it a solid game but if your not sure there is a 7 day trail
