Aion has experienced a myriad of highs and lows since its North American release a year ago. After making big numbers in the Asian market, the game struggled to make an impact on US and European players. Now with the release of Aion’s first expansion, Assault on Balaurea, former players are looking at the game once again and hoping for a brand new experience.

Did NCsoft manage to deliver an expansion that manages to appeal to the western gaming market? Ten Ton Hammer has given Aion a comprehensive run through to find out if Assault on Balaurea delivers. Read our review and be sure to share your own thoughts. Has Aion's first expansion managed to wow you?

Assault on Balaurea's storyline shifts the focus from the struggles between the Elyos and the Asmodians (although there is still plenty of that too) and turns the spotlight on the trouble making Balaur. Daevas from both factions unite together in a common cause to invade the Balaur homeland and work to put an end to their menacing acts of war. Make no mistake though, the opposing factions may have a common enemy but that doesn’t put any damper on the war between the Elyos and Asmodians and they will fight their own battles against each in a continuing PvP saga.
