A Personal Review For Albion Online

I've been playing MMO's for close to two decades, never played UO nor Runescape, I have generally been pushed towards 3D Enviroments with story lines, Everquest, WOW, Archeage etc.

 

As I no longer played any of those I was on the look out for something to replace, I had access to a friends founders account so I thought I would give it a shot, from what I read, I thought it may be interesting.

 

I played for a total of about 20 hours, before I gave up. To be honest I play games for escapism and fun. I was struggling really hard to enjoy it towards the end of my short stint.

 

Couple of things that really bothered me, there is no real way to play this game solo beyond tier 3, no matter how you attempt it, at a certain point this game becomes 100% social reliance on others. You simple cannot craft anything beyond a couple of things at that point, unless you are willing to stay in 30% of the map and play a lot of time.

 

A Personal Review For Albion Online

 

I went down a path of crafting, did everything I thought I was required to do to get to the next stage, and then the game told me I had obtain a crap ton of fame from another area across the other side of the crafting map to progress.

 

Fun for me is not running to nodes, running back to the bank, running to nodes, running back to the bank, running to nodes...

 

To me, if your only enticement to the consumer to keep playing is to make progression just a stopid and time consuming grind to the extent it would literally take a year or two to achieve one of many branches of the crafting tree (take note you will need many branches or access to someone who has different branches to get far in this game) to get to what some would term an end game enviroment ?

 

There is really no skill beyond upping materials and fame, it is heavily based towards gear and who has a better geared group of people. And once people work out the best combinations of armor and spells attributes this game is destined to be very cookie cutter people.

 

Anyway, personally, this is not for me, these thoughts above are my own and I dont have any ill feelings for the game or the devs, it looks good, and shows promise if your into that sort of thing, but this at the end of the day is not fun.
