Order & Chaos Online review part 3 – levels 40 to 60 (iOS/Universal)July 16, 2011
♫ “I’ve got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you”
10 word description: Questing and grinding, almost always solo, towards endgame of …. nothing.
10 word review: A decidedly anticlimactic end of an entertaining journey. Update please!
You will like this if you enjoy: A change of scenery but the same meaningless quests as always, plus a considerable amount of grinding at the end.
The good news: Nobody (who enjoys RPGs or MMOs) can honestly complain about the value for money provided by the levelling and exploring in this game.
The bad news: This game was released with no endgame content (instances, raid bosses, structured pvp, etc.) and the first update included “best armour in game” as in-app-purchases. Many problems that are constantly talked about on the official forum have not been addressed or even adequately responded to. Chat channels are not moderated and are a constant source or annoying and offensive crap apparently posted by nazi teenage virgins. Yes, you can ignore individuals or even completely turn off global chat, but there should be a better answer than that.
Arcadelife verdict: It’s still one of the most entertaining and engrossing games available, it just needs some serious attention in order to be what most people want it to be.
Arcadelife rating: 80/100 – Yes, it’s dropped 10 points because there’s no endgame content.
Version reviewed by Arcadelife is 1.0.2
