This is my first gacha game that I dedicated significant time to, and I have to say...it's awful. I hesitate to even call it a game. This was so painful because I love Ni No Kuni back on ps3. I can't even think of anything clever to say, it just makes me sad to see this.
This and Planetside 2 are the only MMOs that have ever held my attention. It's like if you combined Eve and a WW2 simulator where every player is real. I know it's unlikely, but I would love for this to become the future model for MMOs and shooters to build on.
I don't quite get why so many people hold this is such high regards. It's a fun game but it gets old fast. It felt sluggish and had too much visual clutter sometimes for me. I've played a ton of co-op shooters with my brother, so I went in expecting to like this more than I did.
The beta for this game was actually completely different from the end product, and a lot more fun to me. It was more of a WW1 trench warfare game where the two sides slowly build trenches and tunnels toward each other. Jagex bought this game after that and turned it into a bad TF2 knockoff. I'd give that Beta a 4/5.
