A Review of Aion: Tower of Eternity
Agario is a highly addictive game from the makers of Aion, a massively multi-player online role-playing game. Players take on the roll of a character and travel throughout the world of Aion to collect and train their own pet, the Agario. Pets can be selected from a wide variety of breeds, each with its own skills, strengths and weaknesses. The aim of the game is to build up the Agario and then send them on quests to gather crafting materials or kill enemies to gain access to powerful weapons. Once a pet is fully trained, they can be sent on numerous combat missions, or be left to fend for themselves on the world map.
To start playing, an account is required. This is usually free of charge, but requires activation of an email address. Players can then create their own character, which is customized according to a pre-determined template. Characters start with only a starter pet, and as they level up, more pets are available to purchase.
Unlike other massively multi-player online games, in Aion: Tower of Eternity, one's combat is not solely dependent on a single type of skill. Much like other games, tactics are necessary in order to ensure that one's attacks have the least effect on the target, while still creating a powerful attack that will stagger their opponents. Each player begins at level 1, and can increase their level by earning experience points ("EP"), completing various quests, or through playing in the player versus player battle Arena. Players can also purchase upgrades for their arsenal at vendor stalls, but must first complete the tutorial to do so.
The game itself is quite enjoyable, despite some lacking visual appeal. The world itself is colorful and detailed, and the game thankfully follows a logical path while at the same time creating a sense of adventure. Due to the large number of player controlled characters, some clipping and modeling errors are occasionally present, though these are easily fixed with some minor adjustment. For the most part, however, this game runs very smoothly.
Aion: Tower of Eternity follows a very simple quest path, and the story line does not stray far from the ones established in the original Aion. However, one major difference is that it uses a class system where classes can be further broken down into several types of units. This allows for both offense and support, although it can become quite complex as you try to build your collection of units. The game is well balanced, and does not have any overly complicated quests or areas where you fight head on. As you progress through the game, you will find yourself wanting to learn more about the various characters, as well as the different areas where they can be found.
Overall, Aion: Tower of Eternity is an enjoyable game to play. Although the visuals might not be for everyone, those who are fond of the fantasy genre might enjoy it just as much as those who prefer more realistic settings. The positive reviews given for this game indicate that its potential appeal is significant.
