OP  11/30/11 1:53:05 PM#1

In our latest review at MMORPG.com, we take a look at the post apocalyptic world of Fallen Earth. Read on to find out why it's said in the review that Fallen Earth is the "front runner for the Sandbox Crown". Be sure to leave us a comment or two when you're finished reading!

It is always nice to find communities within MMORPGs, and Fallen Earth boasts a helpful and active population. The "Help" chat channel is always buzzing with Q&A, and veteran players will, in my experience, stop and give a helping hand to those in need. The addition of the F2P has also brought with it a bounty of new players, each as confused as the other, so fumbling through those opening stages will never be lonely. With an active YouTube fan base, as well as a number of guides, the community of Fallen Earth is if nothing else, productive, helpful, and engaging.

Really? Is it going to take it from EvE?

Eve is always considered the sandbox, but sandboxes are about freedom. How many people truly feel they have the freedom to do everything in the confines of a spaceship?

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

Well, anything is possible. FE is more approachable than Eve, and the cost to start playing it is lower. They could easily get more players than Eve, even if they don't get more paying players.

** edit **
Also, it's only two years old. Add a couple years of polish, compared to the slowing development of Eve, and you get Fallen Earth as King (or Queen).

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Let us see it is F2P, easier to get into, a lot more helping and mature community than EVE, players don't quit in frustration after being harrassed, ganked, camped or whatever. You have to take all things into factor and not  just how the game plays itself.

Problem with Fallen Earth, it has always faced the question is it really a sandbox.  From my point of view, Eve is far more of a sandbox than Fallen Earth, hence you can't take a crown if you really aren't a true sandbox.

I have my doubts, I think it is likelier that WoDO will take over after Eve tha FE.

I  might be wrong though, Eve didn't start that well but turned the game around, maybe FE can do it as well.

unless you can terraform and build structures piece by piece in Fallen Earth, I think Xsyon takes lead in 'sandbox'. But thats just my opinion.

This.  FE is a true theme-park/sandbox hybrid, but it is far more like WOW than it is UO or even EVE.

I enjoyed the title, but it has longevity issues which had players leaving in droves at end game (because, there isn't one)

Maybe its changed since I played it (about a year after it launched) and since its now free to play I might give it another go.

edit: Thank God there's a thread to post in that isn't about SWTOR

The more you hype an upcoming game in your mind, the more it will fail to meet your expectations.

12/01/11 9:14:36 AM#11

Fallen Earth is not a sandbox MMO. It has some sandbox elements, but it has far more themepark elementals. At best it's a hybrid MMO, but it's by no means a sandbox.

Fallen earth was too Quest stacky and linear for me. 

Crafting was good but it doesn't off the freedom of a game like EvE.

Will d/l this now and give it a try. was going to buy it back in the day, but heard bad things.I'm not sure EVE is for certain types of sandbox gamers. it's highly complex. but in truth after a few hours of play i found it lackluster. i think people prefer ground game based sandbox better. Gonna check this out.

I never understood why people keep touting that FE has great crafting. 

You take X amount of Elements and make Y Item. How is that any different from any other game out there? The only difference in FE crafting and WoW crafting, is that there are longer manufacturing times on FE's items. You don't get random stats. You can't really upgrade items. You really can't do much, other than just make Y and Y is always Y no matter if Bob made it or Jim made it, it's still the exact same item.

I don't agree that FE was ever a sandbox, not by any stretch. It was too quest-heavy and  was level-based. Much too themepark to even call it a hybrid, imo...

I agree.  I think it just gets called a sandbox because the genre is so lacking in real sandbox games, like UO and SWG used to be.  Now, there's just EVE, which is very niche, even for a sandbox.

 

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

Now, it has been a long time since I tried out FE but it had some issues that made me favor EVE much more.

As example, in EVE I can mine Tritanium on my first day that, potentially, will be bought by a five years old veteran for his Titan construction. This allows cash flow from veteran players to rookies and allows the smart player to avoid some of the money grind. I did not like that veteran players had zip interest in anything I could produce or acquire in FE.

In EVE the Market binds players together both new and old. Did they even get prober market mechanics besides silly auction houses in FE?

Meh, I don't really consider FE a sandbox.  The crafting side of it might be, but the leveling side? Nope.  It's pretty much, do every quest possible to get max points to spend.  The combat is quite lackluster and what else is there to do besides level up, craft and pvp?

I think it's mostly to do with the fact that what you craft in Fallen Earth is actually useful. In many games, you end up crafting stuff just to level up your crafting. In Fallen Earth (which I haven't played for a long time, I might add, might as well check back to see how it's doing!) most of the stuff I was using was crafted by none other than myself.
