Lineage2M is now available globally on the iOS and Android app stores and the reviews are not painting a beautiful picture. I was planning on covering the launch press releases but I took a quick glance at the game’s page on both stores. It’s not pretty.
The game currently has a 1.8⭐ Rating on the Play Store with iOS fairing a tiny bit better – 2.9 ⭐ from 153 reviews. A common theme across both versions seems to be present, going by reviews. People are complaining about the “excessive data mining”, the lack of character customization, horrible pathfinding and huge pay 2 win content gates (not to mention not being able to log in over the weekend).
It sounds like the mobile industry is at it again! I wish I could have covered the press release as NCSoft would have wanted me to. Their press release makes it sound like the game is everything you wanted in a mobile MMO). The only good thing I can say about the game from my 50 minutes playing it is that it indeed does look gorgeous.
Is Lineage2M one of the best smartphone games?
We are not going to cover the title in review form. My time with it this weekend is enough for me to answer the question. No. Lineage2M is not a good mobile game. The Pay2Win mechanics make Figure Fantasy look like an indie darling created by Tim Schafer. And you don’t have to take my word for it, check out the reviews yourself.
At least it looks good when it’s running. Could make for a nice “interactive” iPad background.
