Kritika Online is a free-to-play 3D anime inspired fantasy MMORPG with action elements. Five years ago, En Masse and All-M released the game in the East. Last year, they finally decided to release the game also in the West. It is influenced by games like Devil May Cry and Dungeon Fighter Online. With this influence, it brings a fast-paced, over-the-top game that wants to grab your attention right from the get go.
At the start of the game, you create your character. As for a lot of F2P games, the class and gender combinations are locked. For now, there are two classes for each gender which can be further specialised into two to three other subclasses. The classes for Females are Reaper and Rogue, while Males are Warriors and Gunmages. For example, the Warrior can be a Berserker, Fire Lord or Doom Blade, while the Rogue can be a Catspaw, Assassin or Wolf Guardian. When it comes to customizations, there are only a few possibilities at the start, but you can unlock more options later. The only downside is, that many cosmetics are only available with the premium currency.
Once in the game, the action can start. Kritika Online offers an ‘easy to learn and easy to master’, fast-paced combat system. With devastating combos, you make your way through hordes of enemies. The playstyle depends on the class and subclass you choose. But every combination is as devastating. At the same time, enemies don’t pose much of a threat. They are running straight at you to take you down. With this, you can easily bait them into combos. Most of the attacks have a wide range and big area of effect to take down hordes of enemies very quickly.
Next to the PvE section, you have also a PvP part. There you can fight in 1v1, 3v3 and 3v3 capture the flag matches. Due to the easy way of fighting, it is more a bait and hit game. Once you bait someone or got baited, a devasting combo of attacks takes place. In general, it causes massive damage and there exists the possibility to get killed during a combo.
