Age of Titans (Chinese: 泰坦战争) is a free to play 3D MMORPG developed by China-based IGG, the maker of 100 Years War and Galaxy Online. The game was officially announced in 2010. And in March 3, 2012, IGG unobtrusively brought the game to Facebook, demonstrating its latest efforts to make an authentic 3D MMORPG, as well as to seamlessly integrate it into Facebook platform. Players only need to download a mini webplayer plugin before running the full HD version.
Age of Titans (AoT) is a 3D browser-based MMORPG transformed from its client-based version. You can start playing it after downloading a small plug-in from its Facebook link. The first 20 levels are solo quests, mostly map traveling and warming-up fighting, which naturally prepare you for the optional events that are relatively tough and complicated.
The game is not about a faceless soldier dreaming about throne. You are a revived god remembered by all gods as “light of chaos”. The instructor-NPCs that used to give you lessons become your admirers, telling they are longing to see you and help you regain some memory. On the second level, you are allowed to ride on a phoenix to battle the final boss and known as killed. On the fifth level, you are given two pets, deemed as your childhood pet returned to you.
Compared with cartoons that star youngsters, I prefer adults for the roles of gods. Characters in AoT are wonderful looking from a distance, with no clear face, however. Monsters in the game are large sized. More than half of them that you have killed so easily are bigger than your avatar. If you are someone allergic to small things, this game is for you.
There are various monsters to keep your weapons warm, such as human-faced horses, woman-shaped flowers, single-footed scarecrows, Iceland apes, and seabed animals. There are so many of them that they look like troops in training. You can team up with your nearby players, whose names are listed in your “nearby” tab under “team”. But the team has to get ready before entering a dungeon, where you will be torn to pieces by the offensive monsters if you go there alone.
AoT contains any element for MMORPG, with an endless upgradability for all that must be enhanced, an endless changeability for all that must be changed, plenty of chances to purchase for all emergency moments and the farther you go ahead, the harder you want to smash the game to liquid, with your evil money, with cunning wit. Even though some games, such as Pirate Storm and, AoT may reduce your golds or consumables over a night, you won’t look into it until all your cards and gold coins have gone to instant revival or express shop purchase for potions whatsoever.
AoT is trying to be a beautiful world, beautiful enough to claim some relationship with some age of titans, gods or the noblest legends. Yes, it’s about the notable or notorious ancient gods of Greece. But graphically, the game doesn’t stick firmly to godliness, just like any other so-called fantasy. Country road is nice, but a myth-themed game must have tried to rid itself from any agricultural clue. Paved road is decent, but it is disgusting to me. Although 99% of the movies, TV works have shown us the luxury and idleness of gods, I still expect to see a different childhood of our humankind where, the gods may be dressed in rags, starving, laboring on a weak bridge.
This is an age for some titans, but not for Greek titans. And they are not for happy titans, nor for bitter titans that deserve happiness. The crystal waters falling or lying, and the light rays breathed out from the earth can’t save this land from looking like stonework, and the most pretty goddess can’t save the gods from being stone-hearted, stone-faced. I didn’t feel flattered when I killed an exiled son of Zeus using two strokes. It makes me more comfortable that some hesitation before killing a god does exist in this game, which asks me to end the life of someone after a failed attempt to persuade him to be good.
With the best fantasy design, the highly developed systems with as many function branches as this genre may contain, “Age of Titans” is almost about to refresh my gaming experience to some depth, but still not enough to keep it on a regular level.
