[Games] Inotia 4: Assassin of Berkel
You take charge of a character named Kiyan, a virtuoso (he is actually an assassin, but you'll get to choose what class he would be) from Shadow Tribe and you would travel along with Eara the Channel of Light in their journey to em... yeah, save the world. The story line is just like any other world-saving game, and also this is a grinding game so you get to grind up your level like crazy. The graphic have changed though. Much more, neater than before, although it is still cartoonish.
There are 6 classes to choose, just like before. This time, the class name have been change to reflect the identity of you as a member of the Shadow Tribe. You get to be either a Dark Knight, Assassin, Warlock, Priest, Ranger (really? should've used the name Shadow Hunter), or Warrior.
And then you get to embark into a journey that would make you soul cry. No, I'm just kidding. Though this game now make heavy use on the Mercenary system. It seems that you would get any companion, at all. You get to hire mercenary (again, randomly generated). You will get to be join by other character, but they won't get into your party member list, so they stick on you only on that particular story line, until they finally finds something better to do. They always have unique item on them, but you can only drool for it, because you won't be able to remove or equip them anything. Oh.. so sad.
|Are you.. joining my party?|
Kiyan took the personality of someone who really doesn't gives a crap. He just do what he is told and its not that he a brainwashed killing machine, but because of his indifference attitude. Thanks to his job as a member of Shadow Tribe, his only work is to assassinate people. Which save him the trouble of talking too much.
|We all got our own job to do..|
Mine is killing you.
Each time you about to move to another place for a different story, the game will prompt you asking whether you are sure to leave the place. Because one you move to another story, the remaining optional quest would be unavailable or will be wiped clean from the slate, because you won't be able to finish it anyway. So you have to make sure you have completed all the quest that you have took along the way.
There are several unique mercenary dubbed as the 'named merc', means that they have their own name like 'Amelia' instead of 'warlock' for their name. Its not any different than normal mercenary though, other than the name owning.
All in all, the game was quite fun. But then ending could be frustrating. Let just say the ending is less satisfying.. wait did I mentioned it got 'Game +' features? Thats right, back to grinding again.
