Revelation Online is the new MMO on the block and it’s your average Korean MMO so far.
If you’ve played Black Desert, or Blade and Soul you’ll know what to expect from this game. Lots of grinding and rushing to the end game content. The difference is Black Desert lets you do various different activities, and Blade and Souls has great gameplay. Revelation Online has none of that right now.
I got to level 20 in about 2 hours. In those 2 hours of gameplay I didn’t experience anything that would make me want to quit playing other MMOs for this one. Revelation Online is boring, has a really shitty story, I can’t skip cutscenes, the quests are generic, and the gameplay is okay. The only awesome thing I can really say about this game is that I can fly around the world with wings. Everything else is done better in other MMOs.
If I want to play through some awesome quests with good voice acting I’ll play ESO or Star Wars. If I want great gameplay I’ve got many options to choose from. Revelation Online did nothing to impress me. Graphically it looks just like Blade and Soul. The character models, running style, presentation all remind me of Blade and Soul, but it’s not as good as Blade and Souls to me. Revelation to Online is popular right now because it’s new, but once that newness wears off this game will be like every other generic MMO out there.
I didn’t have high expectations going into Revelation Online because I kind of knew I wasn’t going to like it. I might grind my way up to level 30 to see if that changes, but I doubt it. It took 20 levels for me to be able to do something that wasn’t the main quest. I think casual MMO players might like that, but I don’t. Talking to a NPC and growing a level for just talking to him isn’t something I like. Every quest that I’ve done feels the same. It’s just kill X amount of enemies, or bring some food to some npcs that are too lazy to get up from their chair and do it themselves.
Revelation Online did nothing to impress me last night. The only thing it made me want to do is go back to playing ESO. It’s just your generic Korean MMO that mimics Blade and Souls visual style, and character models.
