What is Asuka Server?
Asuka Server is an online Digimon game. Developed and published by Bandai, it is a single player game branded digivolution. The server is divided into five regions that have different terrains and climates. The different terrains and different climates offer different platforms where a player needs to defeat each enemy to become the ultimate champion.
The Asuka Server player’s ultimate goal is to defeat the leaders and their kingdom in each of the sectors in the designated island. Once all leaders have been defeated, the player becomes the server’s champion. The winning champion can be announced as the top player of the game. The following five sectors appear in the Asuka Server game: the Central, the East, the South, the West and the North sectors.
As a game within Digimon Online, it is common to hear the Asuka Server referred to as the Digimon World 3 because it takes most of the action of the five present sectors. The creators of the Digimon games have assigned it Atsushi and sometimes called Junior as the main character together with several of his friends. Therefore, Atsushi must select several friends to embark on a mission of defeating leaders in the five sectors to become the champion.
However, like all action games, there are significant obstacles that make it difficult for the player to win. Fortunately, the obstacles are the selling features of the game because no battle field characters are lazy to let you win so easily.
The Asuka Server within the Digimon Online is an interesting game because of the following:
- The game is created with enough content to keep the players busy. Action in five sectors with different terrains and climates might be stressful enough, but if this is not what you call the content packed game then, what is?
- Within the five sectors of this Island, game is also five cities. Besides the natural terrain, the five cities add to the obstacles, challenges and all these mean an online game packed with enough content. Even if I have never become the champion, at least, the content keeps me alert, and I find it interesting to continue playing the whole night and day.
- Asuka Server was created for those people like me who can play nothing but hard action. To add flavor to the game, the different terrains, climates, different cities with different leaders having different tactics to fight, hence adding more obstacles, more challenges and that is why I have never become a champion, but I like that.
- The characters in this game are another interesting activity, perhaps that will make you never become the champion. The characters are so interesting, are unique and tend to evolve through a process called DNA digital evolution. The characters called Digimon species hatch from digital eggs. Surprisingly, when killed or when exhausted, they go back to their earlier forms and will wake up when having energy. I like this digivolution philosophy because it is a fictional interesting story on the making.
I have never worn in this video game. However, that is not the problem I want to put across. Here are a few points I find disgusting with the Asuka Server:
- The game always starts with the unknown terrorist attack that traps the main characters and his friends in the game. Why does the game start with one and only one terrorist attack, but the entire game will proceed with new activities each time you restart the game. I have never known what to expect within the game. This makes it difficult to proceed to the next level.
- I have never even come across a champion. Have you ever been one? Is the game interesting really? How does winning feel like? I think the game is lacking the winning secret and enthusiast players will almost get bored and abandon the game before their tenth attempt.
Final Thoughts :
My final thought to the Asuka Server is that play the latest version of the game is always the best. The game is a series, the characters and the platforms look the same and developers do not seem to care about marketing the latest version.
I have had friends discuss different Digimon games instead of discussing the same game. I mean, sometimes it is difficult to differentiate an old Asuka Server game with the current game.
