PostSubject: Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle   Thu Jan 17, 2008 1:55 pm

Metachronos overall score = 6.4 / 10

NCsoft's fantasy-themed massively multiplayer game, Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle, definitely isn't for everyone. While it's certainly pretty to look at, the game focuses primarily on fighting monsters repeatedly to earn enough funds to purchase the exorbitantly priced weapons and armor you need to survive--a decidedly different approach than that of most other recent online role-playing games, which have attempted to alleviate these very issues. This differing emphasis is likely due to the fact that Lineage II was originally developed for the Asian market--so a few things may have been lost in translation.


No doubt that the game gives you a great first impression

While Lineage II's current gameplay may not appeal to everyone, it's certainly a game that sounds decent and looks great. The game features an appropriate faux orchestral music score that plays in specific regions of the game, though sound effects are pretty minimal. You'll hear short, subdued audio clips for casting magic spells, and equally subdued voice samples for the game's monsters and your own characters, which will mumble or grunt while fighting or performing the game's few social gestures. You'll also see huge, scenic vistas that include detailed cities and elaborate statuaries as well as highly detailed character models. Lineage II clearly draws inspiration from Japanese animation, and its art design is stylized and consistent. The game's characters look great for what they are, though the female dark elves begin the game with an embarrassing lack of clothing. Depending on how you look at it, Lineage II offers either a repetitive grind or a stiff challenge. In any case, the game isn't suited for more casual players who may only have time to play for 30 minutes to an hour. But if you're looking to test your mettle at hacking through many, many monsters, Lineage II will definitely give you that much. And perhaps the upcoming large-scale player-versus-player features, like castle sieges, will make the game more exciting. At any rate, it's a fairly stable game that runs with only occasional pockets of lag. So if you're in the market for another online RPG in which you can fight lots of monsters, Lineage II will serve that purpose, especially if you plan to wait around for the game's upcoming features, which will be unveiled in subsequent, free downloadable episodes called "chronicles." But if you're looking for a game that offers more content, better group options, and less of a grind, you should look elsewhere, at least for now.






He look friendly
