Take a look at God Slayer Online’s first beta test

When the most notable thing about you is your game's engine, maybe it's time to give up.

Are you doing most of your god slaying offline at this point? You might be able to benefit from God Slayer Online, then, because it’s all about the slaying of gods but it allows you to do so with others. Or perhaps you won’t benefit at all; the game is currently in its first closed test, and the folks at Steparu took it for a whirl. The verdict thus far? A resounding “eh.”

As it stands, the game features three gender-locked options for players, an open world that largely seems segmented off into square blocks, and an action gameplay setup. The article admits up front that the game didn’t leave much of an impression; it wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t particularly arresting. Still, if you’re curious about the action title and want to see it in action, you can check out the full article.

feels really stupid, guy makes super cool flashy moves right from the start dealing 5 dmg, and defeating kraken being level one… what will high end content will be like?

Oh look it’s Black Blade ad Desert Desert souls. Aw kidding aside it looks like it’s running great. That Kraken Boss encounter looks better than most of what you will find in most Action MMORPS(I’m not kidding either lol).

Mendoras You say that but I’m looking and the gam,e looks to be running at 60 plus. That’s way more important.

If you’re interested in an rpg with Devil May Cry-ish combat (and have a 360 or PS3) you may want to check out Dragon’s Dogma (Dark Arisen specially if you’re decide to pick it up, that includes both the main game and the expansion). The combat is sort of a mix of Devil May Cry and Dragon Age Inquisition with some Shadow of the Colossus and Monster Hunter thrown in as well. You’ve got light and heavy attacks (but no actual predefined combo chains) along side of attack skill/spell binds like in DA:I. Inquisition probably has better skill variety, but Dragon’s Dogma just gets that action game physicalty down right (even the spells, when you summon an ice spear the thing is like a freight train, and meteor shower is like something out of an FF summon animation). 

Which might not be so surprising when you consider that it was made by the lead designer and some of the staff from Devil May Cry 2,3, and 4. You can even climb on any enemy that’s to big to pick up and throw (and then stab them in their stupid ugly giant faces ;) ).

Part of the reason I bring it up though, is that the sequal (Dragon’s Dogma Online, originally enough ;) ) is being made as a city hub lobby based open world mmo (probably a bit like GW1 in a Skyrim sized world without all the zoneing in terms of structure) that’s coming to PC as well as consoles. And bringing that combat to an actual mmo(ish) game along with it.

On the down side the original game had quite a few rough edges, and while some of those might be improved with an mmo (or just plain iteration), some may end up worse as well. And the combination of Capcom and free to play may be a bit ominous.

Still, if you’re looking for an mmo with the gameplay of a console character action game, DDO (that’s totally not going to result in disambiguation problems…) looks like probably the best bet in the forseeable future.

Man, that ain’t right. A badass name like “God Slayer Online” deserves better than this.

If Steparu thinks it is not great then by western standards it is unplayable.
