VENDETTA ONLINE ARTICLE
Vendetta has an 8 hour trial. So I tried the game. To get started in the game, a person needs to take the tutorials. Tutorials are training missions And let me tell you, they wrote a book of junk you have to read to take the training mission. Nobody cares much about all the politics. It is too overwhelming. All you care about, in the training tutorials, is the last paragraph of the that mission. And, I can tell by the number of newbies that log on and then leave, never to be seen again, that the tutorials are terrible.
Lets talk mining. Mining for minerals is big in the beginning of the game, to gain money and levels. But, it takes a long, long, boring time. Sure, the first day is cool. It is all new. Then, it is boring, boring, boring, as you move from rock to rock, waiting for the cargo bay to fill up.
Lets get into travel in the game. Think about this. To go from one side of your nation, to the other, takes over 12 minutes of holding down the tab key, as you go from one jump to another, and seeing very few other ships. Sure, you can find a plug-in to hold the tab key down (i, nfinite turbo) but it is very tricky to use. Travel is so bad, that you might go to sleep if you have to take a convoy 1/2 way around the universe, taking over 20 minutes.
To gain better weapons and ships, and gain experience, you have to kill a lot of small bots. We are talking, a lot. There are actually a bit of fun, at first, but then they soon get boring.
Now, lets get into pirates. There is nothing worse then doing all this freaking boring mining, then boring travel, as your missions, just to have some pirate, with attitude, find you, demand payment … or blow you up. If you run from the pirate and get blown up (most do), then you have to do all that boring stuff, again. Oh, the pirate ship and their weapons are WAY better then yours, plus their fighting techniques are better. You don't have a prayer, no matter what they say. And I have witnessed pirates killing in pirate space, as well as Nation space.
In the end, the only thing not too boring in this game is pirating and pvp combat in an area called Sedina 8. It is mostly people that have played a long time, have a nasty attitude, and are good at fighting.
The game has some nice graphics, but in reality, is the same thing ... everywhere. These includes rocks, space stations, and a lot of empty space. Sure, there are some things you can do, and plan, but it takes hours and hours of boring time.
They also need some cooler ships. I am fighting with a space ship called a Vulture, that has, wings, like a fighter jet. Can’t I have a space ship? If I wanted to fly a fighter jet space, I would have gotten a different game.
The best thing about this program is that the game was very reliable, and ran on a lot of platforms. This means you can be bored, a whole lot of places. Just go there an try it for free. Don’t fall asleep while playing.
