Continent of the Ninth (Seal) - Let's Play the VIP Beta! [Part 2] - All initial impressions, critiques and commentary. Read Description for Written Impressions [Watch in 720p]

Ever since I've found some videos of the gameplay, I was initially very impressed with C9. It felt like a more varied and more action focused Vindictus Online which holds a special place in my heart as one of the better Action MMORPGs or just online games in general. It's very well polished and was fun while I played it until I lost touch with it. I regret doing so, but I don't find myself ever being in a position to play it again.

This leads me to the Continent of the Ninth (Seal). I throw in the (Seal) because for some odd reason, they (Webzen) seems to have photoshopped in that extra part of the title in order to make it seem... new? I don't really know the thought process. To get an invitation to the C9 Beta, one of the questions you had to answer what was was C9? The correct answer was "Unrivaled Action RPG". Is that what it is? Well...

Unfortunately, to me the initial impressions aren't good. The game feels like it's 5 years old and is completely overshadowed by other games such as TERA, Blade & Soul and even Vindictus Online. It feels unpolished and old. I will continue to give it a try, if I'm not already banned, but I'm not sure if I will get this game at all. The audio is sub par, and in fact bugged out during the first video. The voice acting is laughable. The graphics and gameplay are decent, but that's the problem. This game is advertising itself as being a fun to play action MMO, which it doesn't feel like it. Hold the left mouse button to do a combo attack? Really?

Now this is just initial impressions, but by all means, I don't know how much of a significant difference can be made through patches if this is already an up to date product/beta. It just doesn't feel like the game that I was expecting. That's not to say that some people won't find it enjoyable, and there are tons of level 30+ in the VIP beta so far, but I know that I, for one, will not be joining them in that. I don't have the time nor will I use the time to get that far, unless the game drastically changes once you get further in.

If you have any questions, comments, critiques, please feel free.
