Ash 

 

Family Friendly Gaming reviewed Ash II Shadows recently. This game was so interesting that this reviewer purchased the original Ash. The original is vastly different than the sequel. In many ways Ash is better than the sequel. It is more of a true old school role playing game. Ash requires the player to grind in certain parts. Players are also required to purchase better equipment to take out the monsters.

After playing the second, certain plot points were already known by this reviewer. For those that do not know specific events, they will be shocked at some of the plot twists and turns. Ash contains a rebellion against the government. That is a common theme in role playing games. The government is bad and it is up to you to help over throw it.

The graphics are very good in Ash. The characters look good, even if there is some color swapping involved. The old school feel to Ash is felt throughout the various levels. Certain female characters like the female pirate are wearing very little. One of the dark sides of the genre - women hardly wearing anything but men being fully clothed.

The music in Ash is stellar. The creators of Ash put major effort into that. Sadly they shot themselves in the foot with some bad language. Which is not needed, and only distracts from the story. This is a fantasy game, so why not be creative and come up with some fantasy words that mean nothing in our culture? Why be offensive? Certainly an area for improvement in future releases.

Ash caps the team off at level 40. No leveling up past that. Which is a real shame. Leveling up and grinding in Ash is actually fun. There are tons of special skills, and magical things the player can do. The dungeons are long with a variety of hidden items. The controls in Ash are easy to pick up. Tap the enemy to attack them in battle screens. Tap the skills area to pick a skill, tap the character to use it on (like healing). Moving around the town and map screens are just as easy. Touch to the right to walk to the right. Tap a character to talk to them.

Ash exhibits an intelligent design. Hours of thought and creativity went into this game. One of the main characters becomes corrupted because of hate in his heart. He is steadily getting worse. The other characters are trying to redeem him from this dark magic. Will he succumb and become a bad guy at some point? We play Ash to find out.
