Tera Online is a new anime-fantasy style MMORPG.



Gameplay 8.5/10
The gameplay is different from that of WoW, Guild Wars, SWTOR and etc..
Tera requires players to actually aim the direction of their attack in a sense, It’s real time combat compared to WoW where you have to right click just to auto attack. I find it to be more engaging than most MMO’s because you have to time when to dodge an attack or when to attack unlike most MMORPG where you have to sit around and wait for the attack. Real time combat is much more fun and engaging.
Tera also incorporates a political system, where players can run for Mayor or forcibly obtain the position. Players can also adjust the tax of the city and much more.


Graphics 8/10
The detail of each model is really clean but yet decent eye candy and the same goes for the environment It’s something I enjoy looking at compared to looking at WoW since the enviroment looks to bland and the textures aren't that detailed.

Community N/A
From my experience looking at chat the community isn't solid yet, but this is to be expected as players tend to make quick judgements on a game without ever going past lvl 10 and as always they compare it to upcoming MMO's, which mind you I doubt they've even played personally. Aside from that I haven't run into any rude players in the world besides reading some fail trolls in the world chat (RTS trolls would make these guys cry)
I can't really score it because It would be unfair to judge it since the haters will eventually leave the game.

Comparison to other popular MMORPG?
Well It’s not really fair to compare this MMORPG with another one, because there aren’t many MMORPG’s that are exactly like this but in the games people are constantly comparing it to World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2 & Diablo 3.
You can’t compare it with them because the main features in each game are totally different and this includes fighting style, UI, Political system and basic gameplay.
If a game doesn’t have the exact same features you can’t really compare it because It’s like saying World of Warcraft is better than Starcraft 2. Two seperate categories, just like with Tera it’s in a different sub category in MMORPG.

I've created a brief review due to the fact I haven't had time to explore the world much and throw at least 50 hours at it, so this review is based on about a total of 10 hours played.

I agree with all this! i played in the open beta and the head start so I have more then 50hrs under my belt. There are some areas that need fixing but for a translation from the Korean version not that bad!

But if people are looking at it to buy diffidently check it out! overall score for me to it would be 9 due to the fact the only other game i played like it was Raiderz but Tera has more in-depth game play.
