Deicide is a game I am sure some of you have played, and those who have not should most likely heed the words of this review. While the game is not flat out terrible, it has some qualities that make it for the most part unplayable, but it is by no means bad. Prepare to meet a world of unique creatures, and some that are not so unique, but still belong in this happy fun time game.This is Deicide online, and for those who don’t know, Deicide roughly means “to kill god.” now that just sounds like blasphemy. I think I might like this game.
The history of Adum
This was the last we saw of our god, and the last help we ever got from him, and the demon has returned bringing with him many different creatures to cause havoc upon our world. Its up to us to take him down, now raise your swords and fight with me brothers and sisters!
Magic animations are rather boring to watch, seeing as they all look alike at some point, but I suppose that’s par for the course. Textures are low res and the world looks flat at times, other then some hills and mountains strewn around the maps. Monsters in the world have a certain feel to them, some we’ve seen in other medias and some I don’t want to see again, all of them had terrible models and animations.
Noises in my head
The sound effects are somewhat forgettable, as is the music. The sounds of combat are amusing for a short time, but it can grow on the nerves after a while. The music, as epic as it is, feels out of place in some areas and some doesn’t really convey the danger of the area or of the combat there. I know it’s wrong to throw personal taste into a review but I advise you to bring your own music, it will help you decide whether to continue to play.
I see no people
The community for this game is dead, or hiding in higher level areas, but the new player zone is empty. If it’s not empty it has one or two bots running around, and if it is not a bot, it’s someone who doesn’t speak your native tongue. The forums seem quiet as well, and the complaints and issues seem to go unnoticed, which is never good for an MMO company.
Now you may be wondering, “Salis, you god of a man, is this game any good?”, The short answer is “No.” The long answer is: “No, you’re better off playing something that is more fun. Remember fun? I know I do, back in the days of Ragnarok and Helbreath, when Korean MMOs were actually somewhat enjoyable. But now we look out and see an endless sea of mediocrity and people who don’t try. Companies need to learn that they can make more money if they keep their players happy. But there are a brave few who stand up and cast off the rags of a beggar, and prove that they can earn what they want. Maybe I am being a tad too critical with the game, I mean, who knows when this game originally released? As I said go play something else, or take a little time to try out this game. It can’t hurt, right?”
– The story was inventive, it really made you feel that there was some sort of urgency to fend off this beast of chaos.
– I saw some unique creature designs, and some I never expected to see.
– While combat was slow, the sword and bow animations were well done.
– Weapons and armor were authentic for the age this tried to take place.
– The animations could have been better.
– Sound can get annoying and repetitive.
– Combat is sluggish and slow.
– Leveling is rather confusing if you are just starting out.
– From what I can tell the game has not been updated in a while.
