When you get some knowledge about the game you will notice that endgame has a paywall, the recalculate and reappraise scrolls, whetstones and badges (costume salvaging) are some things you can buy at the shop and will boost you so much.

The Room-To-Room nature of the level design really killed this game for me, tt doesn't let me get into a nice grinding flow. The combat's kinda fun but overall the game really feels like "been here done that but not quite as good" as games that have already come out.

At first I thought I liked it, but the time between level 20 and 30 was a huge pain in the neck. I had to do the same dungeon about 5 times for different quests, and if I recall correctly, even if you take two quests for the same dungeon, you can only complete one of them, you have to finish and then redo the dungeon all over.

I was interested in the story and how I stop the bad guy, but the game was so repetitive that I quit at around level 30.
The combat is fun, but it also becomes annoying and tedious.

The game reminded me of playing Diablo 2 when I was 15 and I was grinding the same locations and bosses just to get a certain rune or another drop - Counterss, Travincal, Mepthisto, Baal... it was somehow more fun than Kritika, because in Diablo 2, if you were a Sorceress, you can teleport straight to the place/boss you want to run and save a lot of time, in Kritika you can't advance to the next area unless you kill every enemy in the current one.

The game REALLY REALLY REALLY enforces grinding and I'm very against that if it's presented in such a retarded way. Grinding enchanting materials in Vanilla WoW to sell on the AH so you can earn 100g and buy your first mount, or grinding Turbine Points in LOTRO to unlock new quest packs or grinding in order to get some Aurum in The Secret World Legends is a lot more fun experience.


That's my opinion of Kirtika - I initially liked it, but later on I started to hate it, now I'm pretty sure I won't be playing it and playing The Secret World Legends and Vanilla WoW instead.

I'm not telling you not to, just sharing my experience so you know what you will be dealing with.
