- Awkward combat system.- Camera angle issues from time khổng lồ time.- A.I.-controlled characters are a mess.- Lock-on mechanic is implemented poorly.- Storyline isn’t really enjoyable.


I am personally a bạn of both Sword Art Online and Accel World, so I thought it would be something enjoyable for me but turns out I was wrong...so wrong.


Videogame adaptations of anime series are usually a hit or miss thing. Some are really great while others are a waste of time. You’d think combining 2 different anime series would easily make it a success but unfortunately, this is definitely the latter. Today, we’re going lớn look at Accel World VS Sword Art Online: Millenium Twilight, a PlayStation 4 crossover-anime adaptation with an emphasis on virtual realms by Bandẻo Namteo.


The game seems to take place after the events of Sword Art Online 2, with Asumãng cầu rescued & her spending time with Kirikhổng lồ and Yui in the virtual world of Alfhelặng Online. All of a sudden, a server-wide announcement was made; “We will be carrying out urgent maintenance today starting now.”

After hearing the announcement, Yui, who appears differenPS4 than usual, departs to an unknown location under the guise of going to sleep. While Kirito lớn and Asuna were chasing her, they were attacked by a mysterious blaông xã machine life-size that is familiar khổng lồ Accel World fans. A robotic being known as Blachồng Lotus.

After the brief confrontation, it turns out that Blaông chồng Lotus has been tricked by a person named ‘Persomãng cầu Vabel’, whose mission is unknown. All that is known now is that the virtual realm is changing, & the accelerated world and virtual world are merging inkhổng lồ a singular realm, which can spell doom for both worlds and the players. The heroes then set on a journey to save Yui, and the world from destruction.

Gameplay

*

At its core, Accel World VS Sword Art Online is a Japanese role-playing game. You’ll have a wide variety of choices in terms of playable characters but you can only take up to 3 at once. You’ll have sầu the main quests khổng lồ follow in order lớn proceed with the game’s storyline, and be able khổng lồ take part in side quests that aren’t mandatory, but can make progressing through the game much easier thanks to its rewards & additional experience from battles during quests.

And yes, you will have sầu to battle enemies in order lớn grow stronger. Your characters can level up as usual, which will increase their parameters but your skills & techniques can cấp độ up on their own as well. You just have to lớn keep using it, & this will lead to lớn that skill either being stronger or easier khổng lồ cast. You’ll also be able to lớn equip a variety of weapons for your characters, with each weapon having their own specific mix of skills.

*

To explore the game’s world, you can either walk on the ground or do character-specific skills that will make travelling easier. For instance, Sword Art Online’s Kirito can freely fly whereas Accel World’s Blachồng Lotus can only vì chưng high jumps. While travelling through the world, enemies will pop up in the bản đồ, và players are free khổng lồ either engage them or avoid them completely. In essence, this game has the basic role-playing game elements integrated but there’s nothing special about the game. In fact, it gets worse from here.

The Combat System is Horrible

*

Accel World VS Sword Art Online’s combat system seems to lớn be inspired by the Dynasty Warriors-style haông chồng và slash system. However, it does so quite poorly. As the map is generally huge, you’ll have enemies not only on the ground but also in the air…high up in the air even. For starters, the lock-on mechanic isn’t exactly user-friendly. You need khổng lồ be really cthua to lớn the enemy to lớn be able lớn properly lock-on.

Secondly, you don’t have sầu a move that can really home-in on an enemy when you’ve sầu locked on to them. Take Kingdom Hearts for example. The moment you lock-on lớn an enemy, your movements và attacks will be focused on that enemy automatically. That’s not the case for this game as you still need khổng lồ manually adjust your movements và skills to accurately hit your enemies. Most of the time, my attacks ended up not hitting because I’m either facing the wrong direction or the camera angle gets wonky.

*

Third, the A.I.-controlled enemies & allies seem to lớn behave quite strangely. The enemies don’t seem to actively attachồng you, and even they are having trouble landing their attacks while your allies are easily taken down in trùm fights. This was a 1-star boss fight mind you, which is considered the easiest in the game & I personally didn’t have sầu trouble with. My A.I.-controlled buổi tiệc nhỏ members however are constantly taken out, which forced me to lớn revive them và use up my items.

I’ll give credit khổng lồ the game when it comes lớn the executable skills for each character. It’s easy to lớn use, there is a huge number of skills that each character can utilize, và you have quiông xã access lớn said skills via customizable shortcuts. To an extent, this gives flexibility to lớn fit most players’ play style while making it easy lớn use them. However, the fact that it can be hard to lớn l& a hit with these skills at times makes it quite a disappointment.

Accel World Vs Sword Art Online Verdict

*

I had hopes that Accel World VS Sword Art Online would make for at least a decent game. Perhaps, my expectations were phối too high but one thing’s for sure; this game is a major disappointment. I am personally a fan of both Sword Art Online and Accel World, so I thought it would be something enjoyable for me but turns out I was wrong.

The game would have sầu been so much better if the combat system was more enjoyable but even then, the storyline seems to lớn be a modified rehash of existing storylines from their respective anime series. This game is only worth getting at a discount, & that’s if you are a hardcore fan of either of the anime series. I would personally rate Accel World VS Sword Art Online with our Bronze victaland.com.vnward!
