I think I'm going to call this game Side Boobfu.Since every piece of artwork I see for this game has the same exact thing.

I love it, the general consensus on this website is that their reviews are inacurates, overal crap with mistake all over them and scores never bellow 6.0 despites tons of huge flaws. This is such a joke.


 


According to them, star wars is almost PERFECT. Yeah right...

Ed Note: In light of feedback from our users and the fact that Wakfu utilizes a "hybrid F2P-subscription model", we'll be adding a second review, or at the minimum, more information about the subscriber version of Wakfu. We'll post this in the next several weeks!

This was my biggest beef with Wakfu. The complexity and depth of combat seems to be lacking in a turn-based combat game. And if you have turn-based combat, you better have incredible amounts of depth to combat. The game is beautiful, and unique, but I would give longevity and gameplayer lower scores, probably dropping this more in the 6.5 average area.





 


One thing to consider is it doesn't take long to get to max lvl in this game. Many people in my guild are already almost lvl 100 and I'm nearly lvl 70 myself after the game has only been out for a couple weeks. Once you get to lvl 100 you still gain full skill xp, so you eventually actually end up with all skills at lvl 100 and can use all of them.


Also, there are many active support skills that you use on top of your elemental spells. On top of that... positioning, how you build your character, and what gear you decide to use have much to do with strategy as well. I own the crap out of people in PvP all the time because they don't understand the true complexities of how strategic the game really is.

So having a free trial in an MMO has turned into a "hybrid F2P-subscription model"? By using F2P terminology at all you are misleading people. It is a P2P game with a free trial option, that's it. If you read the dev posts on the forums they state themselves it is not intended to be considered F2P but P2P, it is simply a trial that doesn't have a time limit.



In the Pros section you even call it a "Beautiful F2P game", how much do you guys even know about this game really? Do some more research.

I played this game in CB and was going to play at launch. Then they put out the actual details of the subscription and how absolutely horrific their "free to play" model is. You can barely do anything if you go the f2p route and the game, imo, doesn't warrent me shelling out any subscription on. Hell, the last time I checked f2p people weren't even able to group with other people.


 


So a big no thank you unless it goes full f2p with a cash shop (which it very well may since a lot of people are angry with the state of the game even after 4 years in CB).

This was definately an amatuer review - more like a random (long) forum post than a professional review on a large gaming site.  This is not just baseless criticism either, as there were so many things factually wrong with the review.  Let's cover some of them:

 

1) Wakfu is not a f2p game.  Wakfu is not a f2p-hybrid game.  It is a subscription game, and only a subscription game.  Just like WoW, and just like Rift, etc.  Reviewing this as a f2p game would be no different than reviewing the first 20 levels in WoW's trial and calling it a day.  A little research into the game, its mechanics, zones, content, etc. makes it clear that 90-95% of the game is locked unless you are a subscriber.

 

2-X) There were any number of small but important errors in the review.  For example, chat is quite restricted for non-subscribers, in that you cannot use Trade chat which reaches the most people and allows you to communicate outside of your immediate vicinity.  Modifying the environment is different than this "review" explains it as well, since outside of the starter area many resources (including mobs) don't just quickly respawn but must be replaced by players.  You can display multiple skill bars, you simply right-click on the number of the skill bar you wish to detach.  You don't need to be a particular faction to explore their lands.  Etc.

 

I did not play Dofus, and I only spent about 4-6 hours playing Wakfu as a non-subscriber and yet I noticed all of these inaccuracies.  I'm sure someone who actually played Wakfu and spent some time with it (unlike me, and unlike the reviewer) could add more.  I'm not trying to encourage anyone to play, or not play.  I didn't care for the game myself.  But whether you decide to skip Wakfu, try the free trial content, or subscribe, don't base your decision in any way on the mmorpg.com review.

Well at least the review piqued my interest in this game again.. definitely seems to try to get away from the quest-npc paradigms of a lot of mmorpgs?

"Only one row (out of 4 rows) of skill icons can be displayed at any time and this gets very frustrating later in the game when you start unlocking more and more spells."


that's not true. i havent played the game very long, but one the first things i did was enabling more hotbars. dont ask me to remember how i did it, but i know its possible :P

This is no way a f2p game. If anyone thinks of downloading to play for free can just give up now. I uninstalled unwillingfully when i realised that, so in addition to that a f2p review doesn't make sense at all and misleading.

A review of the free trial of a game, by a player who has no clue what there is outside of the free trial?  Seriously?  Did you learn nothing from the awful Spiral Knights reviewer who played for such a short period of time that he somehow managed to completely miss the entire point of the game?

I guess it's better to have the disclaimer there than to have exactly the same review without the disclaimer.  But still, that's pathetic.  If the real review is coming later, that's great, I guess.  Are you going to do that for Spiral Knights, too?  Because that one somehow didn't get a disclaimer.

Another useless review, these are the same guys who gave WOTLK a perfect ten and game SWTOR almost a perfect ten. They also gave EVE online a lower score than this. So I hold their so called " reviews" in suspect.

Helpful review overall, always was curious about Dofus and now Wakfu, may never actually get the time to get around to looking at them though, doh!

Is the game FFA pvp?  Are there pve servers?  Is there a pvp flag, or some other way to avoid it?  The game looks interesting to me, but I'm really not interested in pvp at this point.

I agree with a bunch of the other posters. I played though some of closed beta and a for a few hours of the open beta.

There's a bunch to this game. First off, like everyone was saying there's no F2P. It's a never-ending free trial.  I don't think the company offically labeled it as such, but you can't do squat without a sub, so it might as well be a trial.  For some reason I think its the same as Dufus, which I think actually have more free content (can't play all the races and you only have access to a few maps).

Anyway, I haven't played since the game went live since I didn't really want to pay for the game. I'm a crafter and this game's crafting seems kinda pointless. You can learn every craft in the game, however nothing you make is better than dungeon drops.  They may have fixed this since beta, though.  Also the miners seem to control the ecomony. They mine ore and make gold, then use it to buy stuff from other players.  I find the really wierd. Again, I could be wrong since I'm going from memory of a game that I haven't played since January.

I did find a bunch of stuff that had potential, most of thich wasn't even touched by the reviewer. Hopefully, I'm remembering them correctly. Correct me if I'm wrong! :)

  • Player government. You can elect a player to be the governer of different places and they put in place a cabinet. 
  • You can be a warrior or guard for the city and PK outlaws, who unbalance the enviroment or whatever.
  • Random challenges in certain areas. (collect the most items, kill the most mobs before time runs out, etc)
  • Your own little house in a bag thingie. It can be a house or a shop. You can craft/buy furniture and display cases and even store gear in the chests.
There are more, but I can't think of anything else at the moment.

If I'm going to play a F2P game, it's going to be either City Of Heroes or Aion. But only after paying for at least one month since that opens up all kinds of cool stuff :D

The only real reason I could see to re-reviewing on a paid account is to let us know whether or not it's worth putting money on. Having said that, and participated in the early beta, I'd like to see the verdict on pay or no pay.


I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil
