Age of Wushu is probably the greatest sandbox...

Imagine my surprise, then, when I sat down to play Age of Wushu last week and found something utterly unlike most of the genre in every way that matters. It's difficult to compare the sprawling martial arts saga to other titles, but if you're looking for AoW's closest MMO relative, it would have to be EVE Online (Age of Wushu, PC) -

Is this the same game as Age of Wulan...
... or is it different!? Throughout the last 1-2 years I;ve seen videos of both titles, and they look so similar, so I'm not sure. It does look very interesting though, especially for someone like me who loves those asian martial arts movies.

I can't believe this Chinese game running TV spots on Comedy Central today.

I saw a commercial for it on the A&E channel here in Canada. It's actually been a long time since I've seen a gaming related commercial on TV, in what feels like forever. To see an MMO advertised is even more "strange".

I loved the mood of the game. The music, cities that looks alive. Too bad pve and exploration is really non existent. Well you can pve but its probably the worst pve ive ever seen. You can also explore but there is nothing to be found. Combat on the other hand is pretty fun although i would get rid of all AOE techniques which i found to be highly immersion breaking. The game has some interesting mechanincs like prison sentences, jail breaks, minigames, player economy and sandboxy feel. If they improved on aspects i didnt like, it could be a great game but for now i see it as okish tittle. Maybe ill give Age Of Wulin, the European version, another try. At least it seems AOWulin will have better translation which in case of AOWushu was, well, auto translator crappy to say the least.
