ArchLord: First Impressions @ Eurogamer
by Dhruin, 2006-09-07 22:46:00Eurogamer is the latest site to toss up some first impressions of ArchLord, citing some good and some terrible:
Yet, at the moment, Archlord appears to be in a pretty poor state. Combat animations weren't always in place at different resolutions, it's not massively stable and the communication system is about as sophisticated as that of a U-boat. As your characters have no pathfinding, they get stuck on posts, walls, and doors and, though we've seen some beautiful screenshots, the game we played hardly came near to resembling them on maximum settings. Finally, the massive lack of originality depressed us more than we can possibly say; surely the Koreans, the world's most ardent gaming nation, must play something that's halfway original?
