Vindictus Online Review
Unlike other MMORPG games that focus on tab targeting and the use of ability macros, Vindictus Online uses an entirely skill-based combat system. There are no macros in sight, not even a hotbar on your screen, instead you must use your own skills and abilities to survive each stage. Attacks are performed using your mouse, combining different combinations of the LMB and RMB buttons. Different combinations of both mouse buttons present different combination attacks, with some being as simple as two button presses while others need as much as 10 successfully timed combination attacks. Scoring high combo attacks without receiving damage adds to your damage multiplier, which also has a large effect on the rating you receive upon completing a dungeon, allowing skilled players to earn far more experience points and cash rewards than the average MMO player.
The environment also plays a big role in Vindictus Online with practically every aspect offering some kind of interactivity. You can pick up jars, vases, even giant lumps of pillars and launch them at your enemies to cause devastating damage, or alternatively, you can grab your enemies and throw them into a large group of objects to cause even greater damage. You get a strange sensation from grabbing your enemy and kicking them halfway across the screen watching pillars and walls crumble in the process.
The gameplay itself features very familiar dungeon crawler mechanics. Players grab quests from the town and can then form a party to begin the quest. There’s a variety of options when selecting your party and quest, such as choosing difficulty options and an Oath of Honor to add more potential rewards if you’re successful.
Vindictus Online is the MMORPG every hardcore combat fan has been waiting for. If you’re into popular dungeon crawling titles such as Diablo III, but need a bit more action in your gaming, Vindictus Online is the one for you.
