Atlantica Online was like Christmas morning to me. It is something you long await for and when you get it, you are not disappointed. Like opening a box of presents and feeling delighted about the bundle of joy. I was getting tired of most mmorpgs because they always seemed to have the same formula. You choose one class from the beginning, hack and slash, and you're stuck as that particular class for the rest of the game. It always seemed to be brainless button pressing and whoever makes the first strike. Not to mention the mindless endless hours pressing one button or one click over and over killing enemies in the same area. It is enough to make you pass out on the keyboard or make you feel like going on the game is like a day of work.
However, Atlantica Online is different. It is both fun and innovative. I heard of Atlantica Online by going on a site where they were giving out beta keys for closed beta 3. I signed up through a fast and easy process and I was ready for the game. I heard it was turn based combat and I was very curious how it would play out since I have never played a game quite like this one. I was enthralled the moment I logged in for the first time. I instantly enjoyed the graphics as they were very dazzling and detailed. I loved how the fairies glowed brightly with sparkling light, how the floor of Rome looked so ancient, and how the water illuminated the bridge to Ostersund. It is a beautiful game that you can't help but be in awe of its enchanting appeal.
The combat system is very innovating. It is a strategic and tactical game that really is a breath of fresh air. It may be confusing at first but the beginner tutorial at the start helps you learn the concepts of the game right away. It is an easy and fast pickup and learn to play game. I love the fact that you are sometimes just pondering what your next move will be and what the probability of the outcome will be. Thanks to this system too, the game feels fun, and it is very addictive. Hours will pass before you realize you are having so much fun with everything there is to do in the game. Plus, you can have many classes in the game and you never have to be stuck at using one class. You can be a swordsman, a spearman, a healer, an archer, a gunner and the list goes on and on. Best part is you can control them all at the same time. There's a lot of quests too to keep you occupied and find out where the mysterious Atlantis is. The quests take you all over the world from Beijing all the way to Paris. The story is very invigorating and makes you want to find out more.
You get to see cities and sites in the game that are known to the world. You can visit Bran Castle that we know today is in Romania filled with dangers such bats and even Dracula! Or you can visit Rome where you can have things sold for the auction or gamble your gold on the betting matches while viewing the buildings and statues of ancient Rome. The crafting system is perfect. From axes to crystals, you can find the materials you need easily by hunting them or making trades from other players, not to mention you can be taught the skills you need by other players. You can create guilds and join them as well as make a nation which is an alliance with other guilds and speak in the same chat. You can go to war with other nations and there's a bundle of prizes to be won if you decide to enter the free league and weekly tournaments which are pvp events.
There's still a whole lot more things to do and see in Atlantica Online and this game will last for a long time. Anyone who's skeptical or doesn't want to try it is missing out on a lot. It is free to play and it is a fantastic and beautiful game. It's a whole new experience for people who are looking for something new and addicting to play as well as breathing new air into online gaming. So sign up today and enter the epic adventures of Atlantica Online.
