Yea that is a problem i am facing with the game.

That and they force us too much to rely on food and potions for healing.

Yeah my Warrior & marksman use a crazy amount of potions, i actually had to use my marksman to craft potions because it was getting to pricey to keep buying in bulk. Still loving the game and now i spent about $30 worth in fashion, mounts, bank & bag space. Now thats not bad considering in other F2P to acquire all of that i would have to mortgage my house and sell my self on the corner.

Here's my lengthy review of the game. (Gave a warning)

 

The graphics. They look good for there requirements. It has a style that is more west than east, and I can see some inspiration from WoW's art style. But it isn't cartoony, just artistic. It is more mature than WoW's style as well, which is something I like. The models themselves are nice, the Stonemen especially look good, they look like artwork. Everything seems in scale (the cities buildings aren't tiny like most MMO's, etc) which is a big nitpick of mine. The world isn't lifeless like some say. They have birds flying around, boats in the sea, some npcs walk around, little touches like that are in every zone.

 

The races are standard for a fantasy MMO. The classes are a mix. Most are to be expected, but some play diffrent than what you'd think. Lots of classes are race locked, which is bad IMO, but the classes that are on more than once race have unique skills in there skill trees which makes for some variety. PVE wise (I don't PVP so I can't comment on that) every class has a niche to fill in parties, and no one is shunned for being a certain class.

 

Leveling speed is decent. It's fast for a F2P game, until the last 20 or so levels from what I heard. They may work the curve out later on, or it may be a cash shop ploy. There are quests for each level, you won't run out. They give way more exp/hour than just grinding on mobs.

 

Crafting is a bigger feature compared to other F2P games, which usually make it take a backseat to the cash shop. Crafting professions are called Jobs, and they are lot of varied ones. Cooking, Alchemy, Blacksmithing are all there, but they have new ones like Socialite and Pet Breeder. IMO, it has the best crafting system of any F2P themepark.

 

Guilds are a big part, and they are a nice end game activity if your not into instances. They have a dungeon queue system like WoW's, which can be good or bad depending on your taste. One nice endgame feature I wish more games would use is an Arena system. A party fights waves of mobs, and bet on how many they can beat before starting. It's interesting.

 

The cash shop is decent. If you put $20 back for a mount and $25 for a full costume set, you will be good PVE wise. No idea on how much PVP costs, but it's F2P, people always try to outbuy each other so expect it to be expensive.

 

There is an autowalk feature, which IMO is the same as quest markers on maps, but saves you the key presses to navigate there. They have an in game calendar for events, and a nice Zodiac feature which I don't fully understand yet. Lots of depth.

 

I plan on sticking with FW as an alternative to EVE, since it is less expensive than a P2P (for me anyways). I'd reccomend to anyone who's wanting a themepark f2p. Plus it's new, so the population is good.

I like the graphics and the classes and the world is very cool but the leveling process is horrible.

 Leveling process is better than any other F2P I played, in that you don't run out of quests to complete on the way up. I can see if you compare it to a p2p game, but even they are lacking in quest content at release.

No Left and Right turn for a char!  Only Strafe left and right, no way to change it .

Character movement is Awful!

Played it for about an hour-ish, then logged off!  Not been back, do not intend to go back either! 

Graphics not too bad.

Horrible game.

I could not stand the combat and graphics for more than 40 minutes.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

Not true.  If you walk forward and hold down the right mouse button while moving the mouse, you can turn while moving.

I didn't play the game for very long, but it's mainly due to 2 things. I didn't like the camera control/click to move stuff, and I didn't like creating a male toon that is forced to look, and dress like prince (90's pop singer). What I mean is that I'm 6'4" 220, and the guy I make looks like a little sissy guy that I could beat the crap out of. That isn't very inspirational to me as the hero I want to play in game. Yes there are other races, but you limit your class choices when choosing dwarf, or big rock guy.

I cant argue about your second opnion because we all have our own taste, but the first comment leads me to believe you didnt even try the game, if you did you would know that it has wasd movement(And if you mean click to move the camera uhm every game pretty much has that besides games that give you no control over the camera). Sorry but if you arent going to even try the game why even make comments like this? (FYI: they have a stoneman race that doesnt look sissy at all and hes pretty much a tank/warrior, beside the elve's just being warriors)

Yes I know WASD is how you move in game. What I'm talking about is that I would prefer it if clicking the left mouse button while holding the right mouse button would make you move. If you do click with the left mouse button on the ground you move to where you clicked which is click to move, and I don't know how to disable it. As I mentioned before about the stoneman I don't like the limitations of either look cool, and play a class I dont wat to play, or play a class I want to play and look like a female. I did give the game another chance last night, and now I hate world chat. I don't know what you are supposed to do to use it, and it's generally just full of the same random people talking crap about eachother, and guild battles.

Aside from those things the game is actually somewhat fun.

I think he was talking about Kindred Vampires, which look like Prince if he dressed like a pirate.

I really admire you for clarifying what you were talking about (Most but not all would have just flamed), and yes i to have pressed on the ground only for my character to move in a position i didnt want him to move in. (I feel your pain). The World chat wasnt that bad until they released the pack whic gave you a chance to get a kool looking mount (Also pet skills & a 10 flutes), what you are seeing is the result of people gambling there leaves for a chance at that mount and getting stuck with flutes they either dont need or want. For the most part though i have whipsered people in the world chat who ask for help so its not all that bad and most of the time i just ignore the troll comments.

I am actually impressed so far. The game has a considerable amount of polish and is designed to be even more user friendly than WoW. For example, I I killed a bunch of a certain type of mob, and later when I received a quest that wanted me to kill x amount of those mobs, my kills previous of acquiring the quest were counted towards my quest objective. Furthermore, quest items auto-loot and junk items are super easy to pick up off the ground, adding quickly to your inventory with one-click of the mouse and the item is labeled as it lays on the ground... No more down time watching your character bend over to loot a corpse... RIFT also has a nice looting system, allowing you to AoE loot, but that is a different game but what I want to say is that I am glad games are going in this direction. I don't know if WoW has addressed this or not in Cataclyms.--Anyway, some strange things are, in Forsaken World, is that you cannot drown or die from jumping off from high platforms. Super easy. When a  window pops up informing you that you have a new skill, you can drag it the skill from the pop up into your hotbar, instead of having to hotkey your skill tab and doing it that way. Not that it was ever a big deal, but its just another example of how FW cuts out a step here or two, providing for a more smooth and easy gameplay experience. Although I like the UI, I still think one should be able to fall to their death and drown and I can see some people b-tching about this. Oh, and female dwarves do NOT LOOK LIKE DWARVES. They look more like hobbits. But hey, the artists can make the FW dwarf look like they want... Fantasy purism aside, I would still rather play this anime hobbit than the bearded lady dwarf in EverQuest 2 =P

I haven't seen all of the game but the soul combat system seems cool and adds some flavor. The combat is fast paced and aesthetically pleasing, but I haven't seen enough to say much more.

The graphics are really nice and I may be pointing out the obvious--but it looks like WoW. It probably looks more like WoW than Allods Online, RoM, 4Story, etc. The reason is the in-game art which is pretty great. Oh, and the zones seem to feel very large and vast like WoW's, and unlike the other games I mentioned. That being said, the game isn't really a WoW clone other than the visuals (and basics that tons of MMORPGs have :P)

So far, it is looking pretty damn good.

wow, so many negative comments! But I do admit, FW is kinda a disappointment for me.

I think the biggest part lies in its graphics. I was rather suprised about its mediocare graphis compared to PW and BoI, give the understanding this game is from a western dev team and came out later than others. The graphics indeed better than many other games out there, but it is proves to me that the dev team is lazy! Ex, where are those realstic grass? Water effect is a plus though, but repetitively used NPCs avatars is a minus! Ex, for vamps the girl(lamia) that got burned is same as the one who investigate in the zombie fields! Another is laziness is whenever the npc says they r gone, they are still there.....like that Lamia girl got burned, or that village girl who was turning into werewolf, or that werewolf guy goin to escape...i know i am being picky, but all these small things adds up you know.

 

good thing is at 15, i don't feel the grindiness of the game yet! (beginning though) and the biggest concern for me is the cash shop. I just hope this game doesnt turn out to be one of those that forces you to pay to be good.

Lore is also doing a good, actually excellent job! I enjoy reading everyone of them, and I really like how they made the information into collectable pages. this reminds me, I am annoyed about the limited available inventory size! one of those you have to pay to expand! geez!

Anyways. I was really looking forward for this game, but it turned out to be less impressive than PW and BoI overall.

-Cons-

  • Combat is definitely lacking. Attacking an enemy doesn't feel fluid (A.K.A, Watching your character chase a slow moving enemy trying to auto attack them, and even though the attack animation plays, no damage is dealt).
  • Sound effects stripped straight from WoW. Doesn't even try and hide it. Don't believe me? Go kill a Werewolf or Vampire hunter. Same death sounds >.<
  • Not enough character customization options, which is odd considering this is made by the same people who made Perfect World.
  • Respawn rates are punishing.
  • Characters feel too powerful at some points and not powerful enough at others.
  • Quests are boring and don't deviate enough from the norm.
  • Classes aren't special. A Kindred (vampire) only class simply called "Vampire" for instance.
  • Classes are restricted to race. Given the popularity of Kindred in the game it's detrimental to fixate on fixed race/class combos.
 
-Pros-
 
  • Not a lot of emphasis on the Item shop (I.E No "Pay To Win")
  • The achievement features are interesting and fun to mess around with. Great to collect all the cards and read the back story of areas.
  • Quests are well localized, which is usually uncommon for F2P MMORPGs.
  • Lore is interesting and fun to get involved in.
  • Large world with many people.
  • Offers both PvE and PvP options for players.
  • Simple and familar formula that's easy to pick up.
 
That being said, these are my opinions. Please don't take offense to them.

 This!

Its a typical fantasy MMO, but it is one of the better free to play games out there. The only other free to play game that I enjoy is Allods Online and yes the cash shop is a lot better than before!

The only thing I would add to the "Cons" list is the graphics engine that Perfect World Entertainment is using in their games. It is outdated and instead of it using your graphics card it will use your CPU more. The game only cares about raw CPU power and barely even uses the graphics card. Not only that but the game engine is just poorly optimized all together. Even with my i7 990x hexacore CPU, 6GB RAM, GTX 570 1.2 GB Superclocked FTW edition GPU the game still has issues running at max settings. I can run any other MMO, WoW, Lotro, AoC, FFXIV, Allods Online, Aion, DCUO, CoH/V, etc. and single player games like crysis at max with no issues.

But it is free to play and if you are interested in it than you should download it and try it for yourself. The nice thing about f2p game sis that even though the game might suck atleast I did not have to pay to play it.

Games playing: Lotro,Fallen Earth,Star Trek Online.
Games playing casually: CoX,Guild Wars,FFXIV,Champions Online,DDO.

An honest review, IF you where comparing it to freaking WoW instead of reviewing it..

I wouldn't suggest being up in arms about someone comparing a game to WoW, and complaining that it isn't a review when you haven't offered anything to the contrary. If you think he reviewed it in an unfair way then why don't YOU go ahead and write your own review? One line attacks on other peoples reviews isn't a review in itself. I look forward to reading what you have to say IF anything at all.
