Being someone who's used to side-scrolling games like MapleStory and Grand Chase, I decided to try out an "Action-Based" online game. The first few minutes I was playing C9, I was thinking, "Oh gosh, this is gonna be another boring game."
I'm glad I kept playing it.
I see the build-up is the same for just about every game:
You start as a puny level 1.
When you're level 4, you get some new abilities.
Again at level 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, etc.
And when you hit 20, you get to specialize in a certain area, whether it be close-range 1v1 or far-away AoE.
Then, when you hit level 30, you have almost half of your new abilities for that specialized class unlocked.
Hit level 50 and start owning everywhere. Lol.
And as an elementalist Shaman, you get kick-ass summons.
The reason I say C9 has long-lasting and valuable gameplay is because at every level you feel good about your character. You feel yourself getting stronger each time you level up, and are proud of it. And with an incredible amount of over 12 available total classes, you can never go wrong.
Do you want melee and magic? Go Taoist.
Do you want pure melee? Go Guardian.
Do you want combos? Go Slayer.
Do you want to trap people in PvP? Go Scout.
With nearly endless character customization, you can build the character looking how you want.
PvP is hella fun, people. Check it out.
