A3Overall Game Rating – 2/5 Not recommended

Stupid me! I played A3 1 or was it 2 years ago! I went to MMORPG to look for more free online games and I saw A3 on the list. I didn’t recall as this game sucks – big time.. At least it didn’t suit my taste – very sorry to those who are fans of A3.

Game Download – 1.5/5
Game download was slow! I’m running on a DSL line and is capable of downloading stuff at top speed of 100-110kpbs depending on both end of the servers. The file was only 300MB and it took me 5 hours just to download it. I only got between 5-20kbps. Furthermore, updating the game through their update launcher took another 4 hours. I can say that their server is darn slow. You’ll need to buck up! Get more bandwidth or something.

Game Play – 2/5
Well it was interesting looking at the skills and weapon choices and upgrade options on their website. I bet that their game engine is quite good. However, graphics wise is not that ‘enticing’ to me. Even ROSE Online which is a little ‘childish’ or kidlike anime style looks much better compared to A3. Anyway you don’t need a super computer to run this game. You’ll just need

1. Pentium III or Celeron 600MHz
2. Min GeForce2

That’s pretty low for a ‘so-so’ graphics game. They didn’t score waayyy low like 1/5 because they were saved by the skills, weapon choices and not that fantastic but the clothes are ok. I would love to give it 3/5 but then again, their bandwidth is limited and has a little lag. For example, you use your mouse pointer to move your character and it will have 1-2 seconds delay.

I didn’t stayed long in A3 – the lag has made me not want to continue playing the game. It doesn’t projects ‘oneness’ and 'feel' between the player and the game. It does not have anything interesting that made me continue playing the game. There wasn’t many people even playing the game! Well another online game shelved into the dusty bin.

Enough said, take a look at some screenshots of the game itself:
