I've played my fair share of MMO's... in fact, I've played most decent MMO's out there. They usually entail clicking on a monster and rolling your face around on the keyboard until it dies.

Not in Tera.

In this game from Korea, you choose between your standard deal of classes, whether melee, ranged, or spellcaster, but there's a twist -- you actually have to aim your abilities. That's right, you can't just automatically target and whack away. This makes the combat really freaking fun.

I have fun whacking away at random enemies... but what if you want something more? In this game, there are enemies known as BAMs (Big-Ass Monsters), and they live up their names. They're not only much bigger than your standard fare, but they hit harder and are much harder to take down in general. Consider them the bosses, except unlike most MMO's, they're scattered all over the place and not just at the end of dungeons.

My only gripes with this game is that the narrative is somewhat weak (very generic MMO storyline) and the questing is a bit bland... but those quests send you out to kill the baddies, which is the ultimate joy of this game.

PKs are a problems as well, if you play on a PvP server, but that can be overcome if you don't like to be ganked by someone twice your level by simply choosing a non-pvp world.

All in all, this game is wonderful. The world looks great and the animations are top-notch. Also, as extra incentive for straight male players, the better armor you get for your female character, the more revealing it is.

Female skin is the strongest alloy in the universe.

Not big on MMO's but I thought I'd share that science!

That last little bit was obviously for you, boss-man.
