In Kritika Online, players select from four unique character types—the fierce Warrior, the magical Gunmage, the agile Rogue, or the deadly Reaper. They can play solo or team up with friends to rampage through fast-paced instanced levels, defeating enemies and super-sized level bosses using mega blades, alchemical superguns, and dazzling acrobatics.
