It's a rare occurrence nowadays, but every once in a while, a game you’ve never even heard of comes along and absolutely blows you away. Sometimes it's a little indie gem that didn't get enough promotion. Other times, what appears to be a quick cash-in turns out to be an awesome game.
One of the most striking things about Aion is its grand visuals and fantastic environments. The azure skies, fantastical fauna, and floating cities in Aion make for a nice break from the boars and dusty castles you’re used to seeing in fantasy MMOs. But it’s the highly detailed lore that really helps create a vibrant and believable fantasy world.

We found the somewhat abstract construction of Aions world which consists of a top, middle, and bottom layer, fresh and ripe with the opportunity to explore whats above and below with the
We admit to raising an eyebrow upon learning that NCSoft is using a modified version of Crtek's CryEngine for its MMO Aion. It's looking... interesting in new screenshots, and we had to try really hard to spot anything sneaking out of a jungle environment. Aion: Tower of Eternity takes you to the world of Aion where three factions are battering the crap out of each other. Two of the factions are populated by players while the third will be controlled by the server. Supposedly, actions
NCsoft probably noticed that most of us spent our playing time in Far Cry trying to climb mountains or jump off cliffs. They've used a modified version of the tropical shooter's engine for their high-fantasy MMORPG Aion, a war of two worlds, three factions and a whole lot of feathers. Two of the factions - the Chun and the Ma - are open to players, while the demonic Yong are all computer-controlled. Initially they're all at war with one another, but the players can change that: the Ma could
