A great game made by the worst MMO company in the History of online gaming called Nexon whom I will refer to as Shixon in this review. Save yourself the trouble, and do not play this game it's a waste of time and money.
*#1. If the vast skies were scrolls and the endless oceans were ink, I could not write enough bad things about any Shixon run game, this game is no exception.
*#2Servers are absolutely horrible. You wll get disconnected, you will lag, you will not be able to play the game properly no matter what server you are on. The community has complained to Shixon about this, but it seems like they are unwilling to upgrade their 56k dialup internet connection.
*#3Bots. As with any Shixon made game, bots are a problem. Not only do the millions of them that ruin this game cause severe server lag, but they also destroy the economy and other areas of the games completely. Right when you first start playing the game on Channel 1, you'll be greated by Bots standing right in the middle of town trying to steal your credit card information by selling gold for cash. Shixon has been unable to catch these bots even though they stand right in the middle of town yelling to everyone. DO you think it's safe to give your credit card information to hackers? Shixons lack of action against these bots shows that Vindictus is also a risk to your financial information and identity. You might spend $100 on your credit card on premium items only to have some hacker spend $10,000 on your credit card for a vacation to another country.
*#4Shixon. This argueably should always be the first problem anyone mentions when reviewing a game made by this company. This is the worst online gaming MMO company that has ever been formed.
*#5Poorly thought out events, drunk moderaters is the only explanation. Imagine that you played the game for a year or so, we all know how these MMO's work. You play the game and work hard to get your high level gear which can take MONTHS on this game. The day you get your high level gear you realize that Shixon has decided to run an event which practicly gives new players the same gear you have, and for free. What do you get for being a level 85 player who contributed to the game since the start? 20 healing potions. Yes this really did just happen. Typical Shixon.
*#6Unoptimized engine. You can have a 5 GHZ (Turbo) 8 Core liquid cooled AMD 9590/Nvidia 660TI/OC and the game will still find random ways to stutter despite the fact that I can play newer games like Wolfenstein the New order on max everything at 1080P without a stutter or hitch. This is due to a poorly optimized engine that does not use multiple cores what so ever at any point in time during playing. Intel Cpus are better for this game due to the pathetic level of coding since Intel Cpu's are usually rated better on single threaded applications.
This can be summed up in one paragraph, at the core this is a great action hack n slash game. You'll play this game and say wow this is really great, this guy reviewing it must be crazy. Then you'll keep playing the game and realize everything I said was true a month down the road and you'll instantly wish you had the last month of your life back.
Save yourself the trouble my friends, friends don't let friends play Vindictus.
