GrandChase (also called GrandChase - Dimensional Order) is a real-time strategy game based on the old GrandChase PC title. It’s a whole new experience and not your traditional GrandChase title, like GrandChase M. Instead of straightforward button-mashing action-packed adventure, you’re treated to a slower and tactical experience. Sure it might appear as a letdown to old fans, but it’s incredibly well-made and it lets you immerse in GrandChase’s universe from a different perspective. There are a few gaffes (especially when you start playing) but it’s something a strategy RPG gamer would love. With that said, let’s check out what the game has to offer:
The glaring difference in this iteration of GrandChase compared to the other versions is the gameplay. Instead of side-scrolling action, you’re given a bird’s eye view of your teams. You can control up to four characters at a time tapping the screen to move them. Rather than hacking and slashing through button mashing, a more calculated approach is required. This is evident in the controls and other gameplay mechanics. There should be a sort of purpose whenever you tap or drag the screen.
GrandChase’s controls require a little practice due to the learning curve. To move your team, simply tap on a location on the screen. If you want your party to move while ignoring enemy units though, you need to drag them to the location you want them to move to. Thankfully, the tutorial clearly explains and lets you try out the controls so you’ll have no problems testing them.
You will spend a great deal of time gathering mobs of enemies in a single location to strike them with an AoE (area of effect) skill. To activate them, you’ll need to tap on one in the UI and pick a location. Remember though, you’ll have make your attacks accurate if you want to get far into the game. Activating six skills will give you access to a party skill which is basically a devastating AoE attack.
Like most RPGs, you’ll have access to the GrandChase world in single and separate levels. It’s pretty straightforward: enter a level, defeat monsters, gain experience, and earn rewards at the end. However, the story missions reward you more if you meet certain goals as displayed on the menu. There are freemium elements (given that it is a gacha hero collector), but the game is generous in granting rewards. You’ll find it hard to win PvP matches against paying players, but the core experience lies mostly on the story mode.
Unfortunately, the moment you start GrandChase, you’re required to download an insane amount of data. It’s either 1.2 GB or 1.7 GB, depending on whether you want the HD version or not. It’s a terrible trend that has been going on for several years now and it has to stop. You have to be able to play the games after you download them. Mobile games should be easy to pick up and play. This is a stumbling block and we’re sure it discouraged many potential players to dive in to the rich experience it provides.
Overall, GrandChase is a fresh perspective and is something you should definitely want to try out whether you’re a fan of the franchise or not. Though it’s not a traditional GrandChase game, it offers a slower yet fun experience.
