Path of Exile Review and Gameplay: Page 2 of 7

Can you survive Wraeclast?


Story

The story is a sort of copy of Diablo 2's basic plotline. Instead of being an adventurer, you are an exile. For crimes your chosen character committed (props on giving each character a different story), you were exiled to the continent of Wraeclast. Instead of Diablo, or The Wanderer, we chase around someone named Piety through the acts.

There are no epic cutscenes between acts and the bosses aren't as ominous as they could've been, though this is common for online games. Of course, the lore of Wraeclast with the Vaal <> and the Eternal Empire <> leaves a lot of room to expand the plot and add new plots too. I guess it makes more sense for a persistent online game to focus on the lore of the land, rather than a powerful figure. If the story revolves around a villain, then once the villain is gone, it's over. If the story revolves around the land, then there's always room.

See what I mean?

Speaking of which, I hear there's a new expansion pack coming out soon - The Awakening.

However common it is to compare hack-and-slash games to Diablo 2, Path of Exile is in a league of its own. The perspective and the sense of game-play is similar to every game of this genre, true. But, the options for character build are far more vast and versatility is incredible. One can really give in to imagination and make an unique build. Overall, this game deserves to be given a shot.
