Last Chaos

Video games have always been fun to me, so when I saw the advertisement for Last Chaos (a free online game) - I figured I would give it a shot. It is an online role-playing game which is a PvPvE (Player vs. Player vs. Environment). The character professions you can play are: Titan, Knight, Mage, Sorcerer, Healer and Rogue. It also offers crafting and pets.

After the initial two hour or so download, I was excited to try this game out. The screenshots I saw for it looked great and it looked like it would be fun. Plus it is free - can’t beat free!

I made my character as a Mage. Personally, I like to play with magic in such games more than the warrior type. However, the character design screen was where I ran into my first problems with the game. It had a very small percentage of ways you could design your character’s face and hair. It also didn’t let me rotate the camera angle to see what the hairstyle actually looked like. The lack of diversity here and poor angles made me worry about this game already.

Once I was able to start playing my Mage I found myself in a dungeon. I was a bit unsure of what to do because the “tutorial” offered lacked much instruction on how to move and what the hell I was supposed to be doing. I eventually found my way out of this maze and into a town.

The town wasn’t much better though. While the graphics were good, it completely lacked direction of what players are supposed to be doing. I ran around this starter town for about five minutes and then called it quits.

One positive thing I found while doing some research on Last Chaos is that they donate 5% of the profits from pet related items to the Humane Society International.

The graphics did live up to what I saw in the screenshots, and the armor was hot. However, it was not enough to make me want to continue playing. It was in one word: Chaotic.
