Corum Online Review

Well I've had some time during the weekend to play Corum Online. I cant say that I played it very long (that's how truly horrible it is), but I played enough to write a review.

I'm usually not picky about graphics...but I have one requirement: that they don't hurt the eyes to look at. Corum breaks that requirement. The graphics look like they've been created in MS Paint and animated with PowerPoint, very poorly done would be an understatement. (The screenshots don't do justice to how bad it really is).

Now that I'm past that, lets discuss the game play side of things. Upon previewing the game, I saw that it had stat points(Ego, Dex, Str, Vit, Int) which generally excites me as they offer good character dynamics. Sadly, upon gaining a few levels I noticed that the stat points system is elementary at best, and really offers nothing to the game. Str simply adds attack damage, Int adds SP...etc. They all do one thing, nothing more, and the game itself offers little for you to modify. The only visible data the game shows you is attack damage, accuracy, dodge. Basicaly giving the game absolutely no point for a stat system as its quite obvious each class levels the same thing. Especially since int only affects the amount of SP, not the magic damage.

Lastly, the controls are awkward and dragging skills onto your "hotbar" is not done the way you would expect. When attacking a monster, your character has a delay, like its trying to figure out what to do. And my last rant has to do with the class I chose, the hunter, whom for the first 15 levels of the game gets a healing skill. Whoopie.

This is the second game published by Gpotato that I can say is horrible (at best), and thus my faith in them is falling quite quickly. I will not be holding my breath for the next game they publish, if their past two are any indication.

Rating:
0/10 (you couldn't pay me to play this game)

Advice:
AVOID

Good day!

Lol, not once have i ever seen a game rated by anybody as 0/10.

After reading the description and loooking at the screens it makes me wonder why they even biothered making a game that would've been outdated even if it had been released 10 years ago...

I checked. It was released a few years ago in asia, and was only recently translated to English for gPotato. But thats no excuse, RO and Lineage were released 6 years ago and they're a significantly higher than 0/10.

You should mention somewhere on your site that its LOTRO stress test this weekend. Im sure many people would love to be informed about upcoming events such as this.

But then again, its just my opinion

1) Its Asheron's Call not Ascheron's.

2) There's no such word as irregardless. Try learning how to spell.

What a gimp review. How this trash could have lured a search engine hit is very sad.

I agree...but 0/10 is rediculous.
