Mazeba here, just saying that this game was amazing. I was younger when I played it and now at the age of eighteen I still remember it and miss it. I have grown older but the memories are still there and will never go away.
This game took skill, and you could find the class that was meant for your play style.. People said that fencer's were the best for head on combat, that isn't true at all. I was a Greatsword Warrior and I ate fencers for fun.
This game was about team work, but you could be the bad *** lone dog if you wanted. Just needed to know what you were doing. You had to have a clear mind and a swift reaction.. I remember when people said playing Osu! would help you in FEZ. That was horse crap.. I sucked at Osu, no need to say I did get better, but was awesome at FEZ.
Though I did get good, decent, or even some say trash. I started out horrible, this game is not noob friendly but it is a cash cow for the true gamers find it the real test of skill. 50v50, with sooooo much to do.
Scouts can be front line de-buffers or crystal harassers to slow down the speed of the other team, they may even wait on top of hills for someone to stroll by just to rain arrows down on them. Warriors can be a bonus to their team, a solid tank, or a berserk damage dealing machine. Hard, some may even be in the middle of the possibilities!
Mages were the glass cannons of course. They could even freeze your character or do DoT by burning him or her. Fencers were really just annoying, but if someone could operate them properly then it could be a possible challenge. Cestus were Brilliant.. I'm sorry but they were. OP in soooo many ways. Front liners and Sappers? Wtf.
I am glad to say that this was probably my first, SERIOUS, MMO. I have played WoW and plenty more of it's caliber. I am ashamed though to say that Gamepot did not do this right.. They had no advertisement that I saw till the game was freaking dead and about to close. I mean, just the other day I was on Pando's homesite, the game uploader or installer that some of you are familiar with I am sure. Well, they had FEZ under the list of games that use that... Wth?
And that's not even advertisement, it's just old information on a gone game. This game would be an awesome investment, but they would have a to advertise, they would have to make the cash shops a little less expensive ( But hey, I spent about five hundred on this game. ). Oh, and watch the server cause people complained about lag a lot although I am sure some of it, if not most of it, were prolly just their connection.
TL;DR: This game is basically perfect; the graphics are there for a reason, to reduce lag. The game can't be beat and there is absolutely nothing that compares to it. Plain out.
Just remember Aeria.. If you host it, they will come..
