Great MMO with awesome combat mechanics
on July 29, 2013
I downloaded this a while back and didn't get around to playing until recently. I play lot of F2P games and pretty much try all the latest titles (Firefall, Neverwinter, Warframe, Rift, The Old Republic, Planetside, etc) so I don't have any one favorite genre. I either like playing a game or I get bored pretty quickly and move on. TERA is an interesting title...the initial onboarding isn't as good or engaging as something like Neverwinter but once you get through the early levels, the game gets really fun. TERA also doesn't have the rich storytelling of something like the Old Republic but the combat is SO much better than most games that I don't really mind. There is a rich lore to TERA that I'm sure plenty of people are into but I really just like the playing the game.
The graphics are awesome and the world design is quite diverse. There is also a ton of variety in monsters and massive sub-boss and boss fights that are tough but fair once you know how to use your skills.
TERA is a pretty big game to download but worth it IMO. Its also one of the few free to play games I've spent real money on (had an old gift card and impulse purchased on Amazon). In short, no game is perfect and TERA has its flaws but I'm having more fun with TERA than many of the newer free to play games on the market.
