P2P OH NOES!
Seriously, $/£/€/<random currency symbol>8-10 a month isn't that bad or hard to pay for, most people who play their coveted F2P games spend more then that in their precious cash shops a month. Or stop eat less fast food for the money as kids change is not that hard to get.
Lets see what you get for that money.
Permanent characters as there's no such thing as server wipes/crashes that destroy characters, game doesn't move publishers.
Great graphics.
Game with more replayability.
God knows how much more content.
Proper GM staffing.

I will be playing this game when it comes out for US...I know alot of people who tried the China Aion with the english patches and said it is defiantly a good good for pvp and the p2p system works by the hour not the month. So if you want to buy 300 hrs ok you pay for those hours and when you log off the time is stopped so its good if you go to work or school and aren't losing on those dead time. But I will for sure play this when it comes to US. Oh and SC2 and D3 but those still don't have a annoucement date for the release =/

Wow. That's the first time I've seen that way of p2p. Smart, I guess. Especially if you can't play as often as other people.

Yea its good for people who play occasionally like after work or school and have less time to play but at a disadvantage for the hardcore gamers who play like 24/7.

Indeed, it sounds like a good system for people with limited play time. Not sure if it's a wise move though, cause Aion looks more geared towards the hardcore gamer.

Nice payment system. Why couldn't more people use that type of system? Honestly.

Because this game probably has shit load of content and they can make just as much money by charging hours.

As well as China is set up so you lose 50-70% exp gain after so many hours till you log off for awhile.

The payment system might not be the same for North America when it's released. Companies change their payment systems depending on where the games are hosted and based on their audience. They want to make the most money possible.

Welp...so far:

- In-depth character creation. Similar to Perfect World I suppose, though I haven't played it. But since Aion is divided by faction rather than species, you can create whatever you feel like being, for example, a dwarf or an elf. Very flexible system.

- Music is amazing in quality and quantity (IMO). Each parts of an area has like 3-4 BGMs with 1-2 Battle themes to go with it. Repetitive listening is semi-low compared to other MMOs.

- Battle system is somewhat unique. Aion relies on a chain skill system that in order to use some skills, you need to combo it from a different skill. Kinda like Guild Wars' skill system if any have played it before. Another thing, I noticed that I can get all my skills, within restriction of class & level, with little cost due to a lack of skill points. I suppose the theory is how you chain your combos that works best for you. There's also this thing where if you move in certain directions while fighting, you get bonuses like extra evasion or offense, depending which direction you're running at. For example, attacking an enemy while strafing gives you some kind of evasion bonus. I find it a little hard to do while casting skills, but I assume it takes some practice.

- Has some WoW influence. No need to discuss about it.

- Balance grinding so far. Aion has made questing and grinding flexible with each other. I suppose it's similar to leveling in WoW, but I can't conclude on that. (has past WoW experiences, but limited)

Honestly, I think that the subtle features of Aion's battle system really keeps the game fresh. If I were to put it in simpler terms, it's like playing a fighting game or console platform games like Devil May Cry or God of War. If you're just attacking regularly and/or using 2-3 skills, you're not gonna get very far. Aion requires you to be active and innovative during battle.

But other than that and the super impressive environments (prettiest MMO I've ever played ), it looks and almost feels like some kind of generic MMO, but all it's subtle features really makes it all the fun. I liked to see this game as a suped-up F2P MMO, or maybe a bridge between F2P and P2P games.

Yeah, just a quick thought-up review. Dunno if I missed anything else worth mentioning lol. /goes back to AO

Side note: will be uploading more videos and later some screenshots.

I agree with Boomsticky, the graphics are really amazing. Walking around in the beautify scenery and sporting wings and flying in the sky was awesome, no doubt.

But aside from the graphics, Aion wasn't that amazing. I only played these MMOs 2093842 times. The scenery was great, but only the first few times and not the 384 time that I had to run around that area for quests/levels.

Perhaps my expectations were just set too high but that's how I felt playing the game.

Oh, I got up to level 13 as a Scout/Ranger.

Boomy, I don't think it's wise to wear a shield that big on your back while flying.
