Aika Online is a 3D fantasy MMORPG with fast paced gameplay, great graphics and strong emphasis on player versus player (PvP) combat. The game presents three major PvP modes from small skirmishes to 1000 vs. 1000 Realm vs Realm (RvR) battles. In Aika Online, you could experience combats between countries and deal with alignment problems. A special feature of Aika Online is the Plan System. It seems a little like pet system that your character could grow up while you playing the game. At the beginning, your character will be a child and according to different ways of foster, it will hold different attributes and finally become a adult. The game’s six playable classes are: Fighter, Dual Gunner, Warlock, Paladin, Rifleman, and Cleric.
In additional to traditional MMO features like quests and item crafting, Aika presents a large scaled PvP system that range from small dungeon groups of 6 all the way up to wars of 1,000 vs. 1,000. Its highly developed user experience also features a unique PRAN system and sophisticated in game voice-overs.

Save your money guys.
PvP is in fact what makes the game exceptional, but the game is so off-balanced and cash-thirsty that you won't be able to compete, let alone step foot, in that system without dying in an instant. In other words.. if you don't plan on burning a hole into your wallet, there's absolutely no point in playing.
I know there will be people out there who say there are others things to do, but really that's extremely untrue. All paths in that game, every choice you make, everything you do after making a character is meant to lead you straight to PvP. That's the endgame. The unplayable, unfair, terrible endgame.
When I started playing this game it was quite fun. I like PvP and this game brought a good amount of it in a semi-original manor to the table.
When the level cap went to 65, I was one of the first on my server to 65 and one of the first with a max'd weapon (played a Warrior). It was pretty pimp for a few weeks, got old fast.
All in all, it was an okay run, then I got bored and wanted to level a healer... best I could say was "OMGLMFAO!". You ever try to level a healer in a free for all PvP game with garbage questing? I went back when the cap went to 75, the concept without a guild's support is an utter joke. Sure it can be done, but it's so miserable. I know someone will try to tell me how they loved leveling theirs, but honestly, even if you spend thousands of real life dollars on gear, I know you're full of it.
I had a couple friends I got into the game as well. Watching them drop literally thousands on the cash shop and seeing the results is actually why I quit for good and have never returned. The game sadly builds itself on a pay to win system that really few games ever have rivaled. Enchanting gear past +5-7 is something you really need cash shop items for. Not cheap ones either, at cap you'll easily drop $45 in real money and quite often not even gain a single + out of it. I've seen people capping out one piece of gear average over $350 USD. My best friend's credit is ruined because he dropped 3k on a discover card trying to level his Priest. It wasn't even the end game set, it was his level 70 gear so he could get to cap (which he never did). His brother was playing a tank he had several thousand into as well and between them, they could get into guild dungeon runs, but in PvP even with that kind of cash their gear wasn't crap. There are people that drop 5k on gear that go a few months, next patch comes, then do it again. Often they become Archon or nation leaders and run end game PvP guilds. Oddly enough, those are the players the GM's actually hang out with and talk to, so they make up the click that has all the influence in the game.
My experience in an end game archon guild wit a capped character and a godlike weapon taught me one thing. If you can't play non-stop, dump endless amounts of cash, and sell your soul for this game... You're nothing but fodder for those that do to step on. I was quite good at end game PvP, but the balance in this game is so off it will suck the life right out of you. I'd sooner re-sub to Wow than ever let this game pollute my hard drive again.
Sorry, I tried, that really was the nicest things I could come up with and really, there's a lot worse things I can think of I could have included.
Keep in mind, the only game I ever regretted playing more than Aika was Myth War. For those that don't know, the developers of that game Igg held a massive cash shop event/contest that encouraged players to literally spend thousands in the cash shop (every $1 spent was basically a ticket in a raffle for the best pets ever to be seen). They even advertised who was spending how much $$! Then at the end, after they announced the winner, they announced they were cancelling the game for Myth War II and despite it just being Myth War I with the maps and quests re-arranged, they would not allow people to port their characters.
Taking that to consideration, Aika wasn't even as fun of a game and actually has a worse cash shop.
-Skips the tutorial for you.
-Skips storylines ( if you care about it)
-Given no resources where to grind at all after.
Don't play this game at all please, waste of time and effort with the massive amount of grinding you will be doing.
If you want to try it out, google "T3Fun Aika Online" for the new download site. I suggest everyone play in each nation before they pick one... clearly iKlone didn't or else he would see all nations have different personalities ;)
This game isn't worth downloading. Trust me. The game is dead. I tried to relog in with a new char and got no help from anyone. Game was dead all on all nations. but, go ahead ... only way to find out is to download it. Good luck.
This game was epic back in the day, but it did suffer greatly. Having 5 nations? the game intro shows you 5 nations to choose from, therein lies the problem. 5.
By having 5 nations, you spread the playerbase thin. Worse still is that each nation had both a pvp server and pve server making parties hard to find when wanting to do dungeon runs.
But the biggest con this game had was "Lord Marshals". I don't know why any dev would allow a Lord marshal to control a whole nation. It doesn't matter if you spent hundreds in this game to soop up char, it didn't mean jack, if your nation had a low player base due to a over bearing, Lord Marshal. I remember sparta, when players just dumped high level chars and started on other servers as they couldnt get scrolls to change nations.
In the end most just gave up. The game is controlled by lord marshals. If your lucky to get a great lord marshal like chris from imperial, all good. But when he left, the game went downhill.
No way, I would play a game that didn't allow me to change nations if the lrod marshal is a prat and is chasing away his population by getting his guild to pvp players that farm in good spots.
As such, the game isn't worth playing. Aika Sea and Aika Online struggle to gain new members as there is no help available for those starting off. Not worth the aggravation.
My biggest issue is the lead nation system. Relics breaking at this point because no one will try and raid osty.
There are no events or new things that keep people having fun, just more and more sales on ingame currency. Seems like they are trying to get as much money as possible before they close doors. All of the OP players run around pking people in 1-2 hits, there's no balance at all. Way too many OP skills to have a good balanced pvp game. I loved the game when I started but now there are not many active players left, people that are still there are talking about leaving also.
Nevertheless, I recommend people to definitely give Aika a go. The gameplay is smooth and fun (assuming your computer can handle it with relative ease), the music is fantastic, and the pran system is amusing.
it has WORSE graphics than aika.. in fact it was released before aika (in korea).
i've played both prius and aika~ aika is more like an advanced version of prius but more pvp-centirc and much better controls/gameplay.
aika also now has alternative methods for leveling up rather than grinding all day for those of you (like me) who can't sit at home all day + have to work :\
and although it may seem heavily cash-shop based it is well-balanced for us over-achievers who are smart enough to earn/farm in-game golds to survive without spending a single penny irl.
also, the GMs of this game have plenty of events and giveaways^^
i've played aika for 2+ years and it gets better all the time.
just sayin' :\
..doesn't take a genius to find a goddamn boar lolz.....
