    TERA's console launch may be off to a rough start, but the amazing combat system should keep players coming back for more, even for players that just want to enjoy an MMORPG without paying a dime.

    Had TERA appeared on console in 2012, it would have been an impressive and unique product. It still looks pretty good and plays well - its two biggest selling points at launch - but the endless grind, old-school quest structure, and bland story and characters make it harder to sell in 2018. Of course, the social and co-operative aspects of any MMO are important and they may help elevate the experience when the game launches, but TERA's core feels a bit hollow, dated, and irrelevant.

    Tera is silly, lusty, and over-the-top cute aesthetic within a massive MMO world, interspersed with frustrating and bad gameplay elements that punctuate otherwise fun and immersive action. The world is full of perils, and players have a lot of control over the types of characters they’ll use to face those perils. More fun than foul, Tera combines the cartoony and the serious in its attempt to create a worthwhile MMO universe, and accomplishes the underpinning of a great title.

    While the combat and dungeons are fast and fun and have been translated to console successfully, the over-world has been sliced and diced in a manner that removes most reasons to visit it. If you have a group of friends and you want to run through the game, quickly leveling up and taking down giant monsters, Tera will be a blast. But if you actually enjoy the journey to the endgame, good luck. Tera has lost its patience for players like you.

    While it’s a good experience overall, it will have trouble hooking players for the long haul in its current state. Personally, I enjoyed most of my time with TERA and I do suggest checking it out since it really won’t cost you anything. It’s a true free to play MMORPG with some great action packed combat. Give it a try, there’s really nothing to lose.

    Despite these nitpicks that are unique to the console editions, TERA is still absolutely worth trying out if you've never delved into it before. It's something I plan on sticking with on the side rather than as a main course, but those of you who are already chowing down on TERA should probably stay with the PC version.

    TERA is a low-risk game to try out. Yeah, the questing isn’t anything to write home about it seems, but it’s still a fast-paced, free-to-play MMORPG, that is genuinely fun to play thanks to its dynamic combat.

    First of all, the game is truly f2p at least until lvl cap of 65. If you choose to, you can play it as single player or you can team up for dungeons which will level you up a lot faster.

    Graphics are good but not mind blowing.

    But the real draw is the combat. It's fun, fluid and addictive.

    Also, a big plus for me is the lack of grind and rng (at least until level cap).
    Microtransactions are mostly cosmetic with a few non-cosmetic ones being optional (character slots, inventory expansion, etc).

    Overall, it's a solid game that I can see myself coming back to to relax and have fun.

Las horas de juego son prácticamente infinitas, ademas de ser un juego gratuito en PS4, cabe decir que hay algunos detalles a nivel de imagen, ademas en algunas ocasiones suelen haber tirones en sectores donde existe gran cantidad de gráficos, el sonido es bastante bueno, pero creo que el titulo aun le falta refinarlo en la PS4, en especial en los gráficos, ya que a nivel PC este es bastante superior, por lo tanto los detalles son propios de PS4. Vamos que le pueden dar un plus a TERA. Cabe destacar que existen dos modalidades PVP y PVE, la primera esta orientada a combates con otros usuarios on Line, en cambio la segunda esta orientada a realizar misiones y cumplir objetivos a nivel de grupo.

The servers are dead and I haven't been able to find a group for a dungeon for over a week now.

    The fact that there is 6 servers and each of them has 3 channels isn't helping to make it easier for players to play together.

    It's a real shame because the game runs really well and you can tell that they worked hard to create the interface that is easy to use for a controller.

So far I'm glad this isn't fully pay2win but it is still there a little bit but it isn't thrown into your face. The major problem I have is the Kumas Royale (PvP) which kills the game for me because there is a point that you're forced to do it to level unless you want to go through hours and hours of grinding. Kumas is probably one of the worst game mode I've ever encountered. I don't know how the matchmaking is like but I've always ended up losing in this game mode. It seems like the game always puts you into the losing side. I've won 2 times and lost 51 times in this game mode. Something seems very off here.

    Decent MMORPG but huge problem later on for late levels/end game

    TERA is a good MMORPG with an even better Controller port.
    Graphics are still going good and mechanics are fun.
    System is plagued with loot-boxes and specific changes that havn't been addressed by the publisher that make the game harder to play in a F2P Environment, artificially pushing people to buy INGAME CURRENCY to be able to progress.
    Beware. Game is riddled with an toxic comunity of p2w players who look down on f2p players.
    Support Discord is amazing, some of the community managers and GM's acctually respond to peoples concerns/issues.

I bought five dragon loot boxes and one weapon loot box, I got nothing from it. Giving casino like rules and tactics as their answer. Instead of the company making it right they told me to kick rocks. I have one character who can't complete a main story quest because of a glitch that they still haven't fixed at the end of the quest. It simply won't let me talk to the guy after I've done everything and yet again they do nothing. They're answer is always to go fluff yourself. The game even if you have high speed internet will glitch constantly and you have to get their elite status to level up after 60 or it takes three times as long. Run away from this company save your time and money they want your money but they don't want to earn it they just want to cheat out of it. Expand
