TERA vs. VINDICTUS

It’s not often that two blockbusters such as these enter in a duel to see which one has the most fans. While TERA is one of the best examples of action combat in an MMORPG, it also shines due to its visuals and open world gameplay. On the other hand, Vindictus is an instance-based action MMO with amazing combat, that some would say is better than TERA’s. So, which one will you pick: TERA or Vindictus?

What else can we say about TERA without repeating ourselves? It is regarded as one of the best MMORPGs for years now, free-to-play or not, and the most criticism it gets is that the quests are a bit repetitive – but wait, isn’t that problem common to ALL MMORPGs? Anyway, TERA got a new lease of life in December 2014 with the first major expansion Fate of Arun and 2015 is shaping up to be a very rewarding year, with a lot of stuff to come – skycastles to begin in February and a new class (the Arcane Engineer?) a bit later. It’s looking good and while there’s heavy competition coming (Black Desert and… Yeah, let’s go with it, Blade & Soul), this is still one to stay on top for a few more years.

Vindictus isn’t exactly as high profile as TERA and there’s quite a bit of talk about hackers, bugs and so on. But this is still a top-notch game if you prefer your MMOs instance-based and not open world – believe us, there are many players who prefer “dungeon runners” like this game. But it’s also a high quality game, running on the Source Engine, the same that has powered Half-Life 2 and Titanfall, for example. There’s a nice level of destructibility to the environment, right now the cast has nine cool characters to choose from (gender-locked, in case you’re wondering – sexy Arisha is the latest addition) with great customization  and the boss fights are usually awesome. It is another game that isn’t going to die anytime soon.

    The steam release for TERA was put back on December 12 with no news on its release even after 3 months. As such, I voted for Vindictus.

    Tera, because overall, it’s a better game. I do prefer Vindictus’s combat system, but sometimes, that alone isn’t enough. Nexon basically made it too much of a paying thing for Vindictus to really excel. The lack of customization unless you pay for it really killed it for me.

    Its an odd duel, like putting together a small liitle girl and a wrestler.
    For way too many reasons but 1st of all combat, Vindictus is far better than Tera.

    I go with Vindictus myself. It’s very good. I understand it’s instance based, but that’s what I was looking for – something to replace PSO2 since SEGA WONT BRING IT HERE. And Vindictus is more than up to the task of replacing that kind of game with the same kind of structure/design. Just with the different art direction and fantastic combat.

    I expected this one to be close though; I mean, they’re both great, right? Good “VS.” this time :)

      Thanks! We’re open to suggestions, but we try to go with some rules. For example, not pitching a game that was already released against one that wasn’t.

    Tera, its undergoing many changes recently ,patches ,new content, crafting, dungeons, balancing etc.Still very populated mmorpg.
    Combat might be slightly better in Vindictus, but that doesnt make a game interesting of keeps your attention for long.
    Tera has many possibilities in terms of PvPvE content.

    You gave so crappy video with shitty gameplay for Tera and cutscenes which didn’t show fight for vindictus. So bad…
    Tera is more enjoyable and has got better moving and fighting aspects than vindictus with way to big characters which looking like sliding… I left vindictus after 3h gameplay so glitchy and dummy moves. BOSSes and monsters are tarded. That’s my opinions.

      Crappy video for TERA? Ok… :)
      The Vindictus video isn’t cutscenes, it’s actual gameplay without the UI, recorded by our editor Rendermax. 😐

      Anyway, the videos are only illustrative and not meant to make anyone decide. The duel is for players who know and played the games, which is your case, obviously.
