After hundreds of hours poured into Black Desert Online with multiple
characters leveled, I'm sorry to report that things are NOT as amazing
as they seem in currently in the game.
Some may say that it's too
early to review a game that's in beta. But I've played countless
MMORPGs since 2001. I've participated in many Alpha and Beta testing for
these games. And gaming as a serious hobby has given me a perspective
on the way things usually go with games and their development.
won't sugar-coat Black Desert Online and it's condition, no matter how
big the hype train or how much potential it has. It is what it is as
what it is is a very pretty, but shallow game.
Calling it a
sandbox MMO is not only not an excuse, but also not true either. Black
Desert is somewhere in the middle to low end of being maybe a sandbox
game, while crawling towards having "themepark" style mmo content.
the developers expect to make Black Desert a big success, then they
have a LOT of work to do to improve the features it has, and hopefully,
add a large amount of content by the time the game is expected to
release in NA and EU next year.
