"Very good"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is for those who want to move away from WoW and need something harder to play. Aion is it, Aion's grinding puts WoW to shame, graphics, gameplay is superb. Not as big as WoW cause all the kiddies left Aion once they found out it was too hard. Which is a good thing as we are left with older mature players who wont spam the chat with dribble. PVE or PVP Hang in there with Aion its worth it in the long run.

"Great game but tired of WoW comparisons."
4 stars"

Considering this game has only been out for a month I thoroughly enjoyed it. Gameplay is very similar to that of Lineage 2 and the graphics are simply amazing.

As far as other reviews on the internet which seem to compare this new MMORPG to World of Warcraft, ignore them.

Yes this game lacks end game content at the moment and yes there are several small bugs that need to be addressed. But this game has not had 5 years of major content patches and 2 expansions, my opinion…stick with it.

I would consider Aion aimed more towards the hardcore MMORPGer. By that I mean if you want a game that is challenging and engaging, not the nerfed unbalanced easy mode grindfest that is WoW then this is the game for you.

Description

*Please note: Aion is an online only game and a broadband internet connection is required to play. A monthly fee is required to play.

In Aion, players are divided between those that are "The Chosen” and those that are “The Fallen.” The Tower of Eternity exists as a gateway into the Abyss, and acts as a portal between dimensions. When a great evil opens the gateways, it awakens the Dragons imprisoned within the Abyss, who seek revenge on both worlds. It is here that an epic conflict begins, as you take your first steps on a journey to bring salvation to the world.

Aion is the most visually beautiful MMORPG ever made. In this ethereal world, you will have the power to direct dynamic relationships between angels, demons and dragons to control the fate of the world. You will evolve Aion's storylines through social, economic and cultural experiences that are both interactive and cinematic.

Experience an exciting change in the way players can interact with their environment within a massively multiplayer world. With the power of the Crytec game engine, you will be able to climb sheer cliffs and fly through moving clouds. From weather effects to heat waves to foaming shorelines, the level of detail you will experience will simply amaze you.

This game will transform the way you experience new content. The actions of every player on each individual server will push storylines toward new directions. As these actions accumulate, they will eventually trigger which will then further change the game’s economies and alliances. Players will create their own distinct history and will have their names forever recorded in fame or infamy.

Aion is a game that knows no cultural boundaries, and will provide an art style, story and game mechanics that will last through the ages and be appreciated by a global audience.
