Secret Online Flaws
"Secret Online" is a 3D MMORPG developed by Ferry Network. It is set in ancient China during the Qin Dynasty. The Qin Dynasty marks a significant period in the Chinese history. It is not only full of ancient mystery, it is also the one and only dynasty that is deeply involved in technology, martial arts and intriguing sociology and politics. These are the main reasons why the game developers for "Secret Online" chose this theme. Secret Online allows players to be fully immersed into the fighting experiences with the excellent Hr3D game engine. Ferry has provided a flexible system for players to choose their unique items. What's more, with over 200 scenes released during open beta, players can look forward to a never ending series of interesting mob kills and quests completions. It is widely reported by the Chinese games media such as 17173.com, Popsoft and China Computer World that Secret Online is expected to become the "Chinese WoW".
Ok...now...we're talking bout what? ancient china dinasty....Qin Dynasty. Chinese Culture and history is one of the most beautiful and fascinating things in thw world. Now, when we're talking bout ancient china dynasty, martial arts will be the first thing that will come out of our head. Unfortunately, Secret Online who's using Qin Dynasty era as their main storyline, failed to bring out the martail arts in this game. In terms of fighting, Secret Online is just another western barbaric style with swinging sword with no arts at all. However, ths usage of magic is very much dominan in this game. Why must follow World Of Warcraft that's sucks when this game can do a lot better? WOW is just another kids game and why SO must follow all WOW weakness? Why westernize Qin Dynasty in SO when the history itself, eastern style is more beautiful then the western? When the heck is chinese people during Qin Dynasty keep casting spell and curse in battle? Magic is western belief. Magic is for cowards. East got martial arts and we believe in Qi as our primary force that generates the strength of martial arts. Well we can expect magic in WoW coz that game is gay enuff to play with those stuff but sadly, ferrygames copied WoW ridiculus method and put it in secret online.
When i play secret online, i feel like in the move...wut was them name? The Warrior and The Empress? something like dat. The movie stars Donnie Yen and Leon Lai (2 of my fev). But when it comes to our own character skill and melee style, the feel of dat movie totally gone and somehow, i feel in the middle of King Arthur's battle defending the camelot lol.
I wish the developer review back the beautiness of their own culture (ferry games is from china) and do something bout the game. Secret Online is beautiful in every aspect but only lack of martial arts in terms of fighthing style and melee. We want martial arts. Not stupid shit elements from WoW.
