Faxion Online - First Impressions

Faxion Online is an MMORPG created by UTV True Games which is currently in Closed Beta. It will be a F2P title with a cash shop system. It has a heaven versus hell theme and is very similar to World of Warcraft.


You get to choose between Hell or Heaven, each of which have 3 archetypal classes of healer, tank and caster. The art style is similar to World of Warcraft, in that they are cartoony yet still manage to be pleasant. The quests are the same as in every game, it's a shame to see that nobody can come up with some new ideas for quests. It also sucks that there are no markers on the maps for quest objectives, making it a little bit annoying to find some quest objectives.
This game, like World of Warcraft, does not take itself too seriously. There are many funny little easter-eggs such as haircuts named "Emo Kid", "The Bro" and "The Sagan". I actually laughed before ever entering the game, which is a good thing. One of the first things I noticed in the game was the fact that Faxion Online utilized an EvE style skill system, where you buy the skill and then can level them up over the course of a few hours and can do so while logged off.
One problem I had with the game was the graphics. There are some graphical glitches and issues, as well as server lag, so I turned my graphics settings down to attempt to play the game without the choppiness and the transforming textures. This helped a lot and the game was far more enjoyable. Another issue I had was the extremely low bag-space. You start with one sixteen slot bag and one empty slot for another bag. You can buy some four or eight slot bags with regular money, or you can buy 28 or 32 slot bags for the cash shop money. Every extra bag slot you want costs just as much as a bag itself. Very annoying.
The combat system in this game is excellent. Any game that uses a combat system similar to World of Warcraft has done a good job in my mind. The combat is quick and fluid, you can move around while attacking and have many skills which you can use in quick succession. This is how combat should be.

All in all, great experience so far. I find the game to have many similarities with World of Warcraft, which is the norm these days. Hopefully I find some more original content in the game as I continue to level. I'll hold off on my final verdict until I can play this game a little bit more.
