Zenonia 4 - A tactic, an overpowered class and a broken PVP.


Heard of Zenonia 4? It's an extremely popular game that is now available on the appstore. Its creators, Gamevil boast an amazing 40 hours of gameplay; allowing you to embark on an epic adventure to save the world from an evil force. Included in the game are several features, one of these are PvP, a game mode enabling you to combat in a single or team battle against randoms or your friends. You enter pvp mode with your character exactly as it would be in single player, with the exception of health potions. This results in players facing opponents higher levels, obviously, the fight lasts a few secounds and they get owned. This is O.K, theres not always going to be an equal fight available all the time, but is extremely annoying and turns players away from the feature. Several people i have talked to eventually completely abandond it. But once you start to reach level 35 things turn bad, anyone facing a "blader" class are owned because of the mysterious shadow skill. (A video showcasing the skill). This skill creates several versions of the player which enable a quick an easy kill, even if the actual player dies, they have to kill ALL of the fake versions to win the game. So your probably thinking, well theres not that big of a chance you will face one of these people, but think again. Due people hacking the game, (Which in incredibly easy, check this out for example!) there are lvl 10's, who would normally have vaugly 200-300 attack, ending up with thousands of attack point's! This completely ruins the PvP system, with hackers winning all thier battles and fair players losing.
But i must admit, when you get a fair, good game it is enjoyable and fun.
To single player: Single player contains a fun, but sometimes confusing storyline. You can choose your class and upgrade your character as you level up and defeat monsters. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire single player experience. One thing i did find, was that with 99% of boss battles, you can simply run around in circles, waiting till the boss engages in an attack, dodge it and fit in a quick attack. This is mainly applicable to meele classes such as blader or slayer, but druid and ranger classes may use this tactic as well. Slowly working down the enemy in this way allows you to safely defeat your foe. I used this tactic thorough most of the game and it helped ALOT. (I will upload a video about this soon!)
Overall, i found this a great game with a few flaws that ruin certain features, but overall it created a great gaming experience.
