Asheron's Call 2 review

The good:

Gosh there isn't a whole lot, and very little of it is very good.

Nice Graphics...I guess.
I suppose (as the defenders on the official board point out) there is potential...if it is ever reached.
Monthly updates and all that jazz........

Honestly I don't think AC2 will be around long enough.Not with the Star Wars:SE, EQ2, the DaoC expansion, and other games being released (Games that work, are enjoyable, or are being produced by people who know how to make enjoyable games).

The bad:

What little there is is B A D.
Poor inventory management
Poor Chat system
Empty world
Crapy Craft system
Tired Skill point buy system (with 99% of the skills being worthless)
Animations are poor (characters have 2, that's right, count 'em 2! animations for fighting).
Everything looks the same.
Most of the loot is the same.

I fell asleep playing it, it's just that much fun...


Dull is an understatement. Once you get past the "Wow" factor of the graphics, there just isn't enough to keep a player involved, other then building a character-which is nothing new.

Heralded as the "Next Generation of MMORPG", and promiseing to take a great leap foward, AC lurched out of production stumpled and fell into the great void of utterly un-fun, and non-entertaining games.
Appearing in a bargin bin near you soon!
