ELOA, or Elite Lord of Alliance, is a new action MMO that plays similarly to games like Diablo and Torchlight. I my brief time spent in the game was pretty bad.
Don’t even get me started on the weird name of this game. It makes no sense at all and I can’t say the whole name out loud without thinking what the developers must have been smoking when they named the game.
The character creator here is really simple. You choose class, the most interesting one is gender locked to female :[, choose your face, hair, and eyes and that’s it. You can’t choose facial hair for your male character or even adjust how tall you want them to be. It’s very limited and that was really disappointing.
After I created my Assassin Warrior, yes the name of the class is literally Assassin Warrior :], I went into battle and was treated to some of the worst voice acting I’ve ever heard in all my years of gaming. It was really, really bad and it literally took me out of the game because I didn’t want to hear that female’s voice ever again.
The gameplay isn’t bad, but it’s not good when compared to Path of Exile or even Torchlight. It’s really slow paced and the really loud soundtrack playing in the background, while nice because it reminded me of Dynasty Warriors, was really distracting and I could do without hearing it again. The entire soundtrack was out of place and should be used in a game like Dynasty Warriors.
The quest in this game are your usual go here and kill X amount of creatures until you’re blue in the face. There is nothing remotely interesting about them at all. At least in Torchlight and Diablo III we have a main campaign. Even Path of Exile gave us more interesting quest, but this game doesn’t really do anything right at the moment. It’s only in open beta and I know it’s going to appeal to Anime lovers because of the art design, but it’s not a good game at the moment and it needs a lot of work if the developers ever hope for it to become a good game.
You can’t even configure the graphic options in this game and that’s a huge game breaker for me.
If you want to play a good hack n slash game just play Path of Exile or Diablo III. Leave this game alone for now.
