I do not like this game.

I got a CB1 invite for FW and I must confess, I hardly logged into the game after the first few hours and never really did any "testing".

 

The FW client downloaded pretty fast without incident, even though it was a torrent file...long as it DLd fast and worked fine I dont have any complains about it.

Once I got into the game, I found the character customisation very, Very restrictive. I played their PWI from when they launched it back in 2008 and I cannot really believe that the same company would take a step backwards on their new "flagship" MMO and resort to premades instead of user defined character models.

The gameplay itself was way too chunky. My first character was a Stoneman or whichever race it is. And he moved like he had calcified joints, painful calcified joints for that matter. Animations werent anything spectacular, graphics were cartoonish, so were the mob models, also the mobs spawned way too fast, I had to battle a bunch of giant snakes early on and even with a massive 4v1 gank the fight was very bland and not memorable. I got bored of that class when I fell down a cliff and struggled to kill an overgrown dragon mob, whereas a same level cleric was curb stomping them and hardly breaking a sweat. I might have been doing something wrong with that class or if its just that imbalanced, I dont care to ask.

For my second class I tried out a female kindred vampire. First impressions, I felt like the devs dint just jump to the decison to make female kindred(all female?) characters look like they had breast implants, but even concluded to give them silicone ass implants. Some might like them, but for me "forced" (since bust or hips arent user defined) Airbag models kill any little realism a game has to offer. As for the gameplay on that character, nothing special. I did turn into a bat once which was fun, but it was in a little closed circuit cave and I couldnt continue in batmode outside that cave. I moved along and ended up speaking to some vamp kiddo NPC asking me bout his bride or such like I got nothing better to do than hunt runaway brides, and thats when I logged out and the FW client was soon deleted a couple of days later when I just couldnt find myself wanting to go back and try out the Forsaken World ever again.

 

All in all, to me, it felt like a F2P WoW clone and nothing else. And I dont even like WoW for that matter, so I cant care less about WoW clones.

End of the day, I would give PW a higher score over FW and the truth is I stopped playing PWI back in early 2009. A game geting launched in 2011 with same old gameplay is atmost worth 5/10 and nothing more, in my humble opinion.

 

This is my very brief experience from late CB1. Granted I DID NOT test any instances or pvp or any real endgame part of FW, it is only my early game impressions, but the early game did not convince me to stay and play. To each his own and this is my review/opinion/POV or whatever you want to call it, about FW. Its a F2P anyhow so try it and you may or may not like it, but atleast you dont end up paying unless you really want to.

Gullible are the fanboys; How blind is their sight!

It's meh. It's free so I try to keep an open mind but...my issues with it

 

1. The movement: It is far too slow, this must be changed, or I imagine most people will drop it.

2. Graphics/Visuals: Incredibly dated, muddy art

3. Performance: High traffic areas will be very laggy (regardless of system, I have a very good one), instead of fixing this (from what it seems) a tooltip comes up on how to turn off features (like graphics, or showing other players) to me this is  a huge huge problem. The fact they are getting you to turn off other players etc because it cannot handle the traffic?

4. Not very immersive, I find myself just going from quest to quest, clicking on the auto-run to next quest giver/location etc

5. Quests die out

 

This is free though, so beyond my criticism im sure it will provide entertainment for some.

Well, I'll say. This game is about as good as the company running it . A BIG STEAMY PILE OF DOG SHIT . I pray this game fails along with the whole PWE company. This was by far the worse GM staff and support I've seen in 12 years of gaming, BY FAR !

So people, play it ,have fun and  waste some time. BUT DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE ANY MONEY.

Go spend you're cash on things like food . You'll get much more out it . :)

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

Of course not, but kindred females have the biggest breasts of any race in the game (possibly several games).

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

Trying to enjoy it but the movement is pissing me off. One thing I wish all mmos would copy from WoW is the responsive movement.

Incredible grind.  Perhaps most telling are the Henry quests and the instance A God's Trial, two of the most important sources of exp for levelling up (possibly even THE two greatest).

Henry quests involve running errands around the game's single capital city Freedom Harbor.  The game doesn't even hide this fact - honestly that is your dialogue option when taking them "I'm just running errands."

A God's Trial is an instance that involves killing 60 mobs that mostly don't even fight back.  Which ends in a boss that is basically tank n spank (at level 35, so far every single boss of every single instance is just tank n spank).

I would definitely not recommend this game.

well, they kind of do. But the best type of hooker! high priced, high concept!

I've tried the game and kind of like some of the over the top artistic concepts. Like the vampire hookers and the totally '80's bards.

I'm going to see how high I can get without the need to buy anything from the cash shop.

Im up to level 27 with my Stoneman Protector and really loving the game.  It's free, I can level without grinding mobs, I can do instanced dungeons, I can craft and I dont have a need for the cash shop (yet).   im in a guild that has alot of good people in it as well.  Might be my home for some time.

This game has me hooked for the past month.

I currently have 2 level 37 Priests.  I started on the European PvE server but moved over to the US East PvE server in order to take advantage of the daily events, especially God's Trial which is held during prime time for me.

God's Trial is actually 121 mobs (6 statues * 20 mobs each status + 1 final boss).  However, since it requires a party, I usually play a part in defeating at most of 61 mobs.  The battle lasts between 20 to 30 minutes and for the amount of character experience gained in such a short amount of time, it's relatively much less of a grind than most of the F2P games out there.

Henry's first 10 errands also gives a good amount of character experience and can be completed in 15 minutes if you're lucky with the random tasks.  Additional rewards from it include reputation (Dream Emblem on the 5th and the 10th completion), a cash shop item on the 10th completion of the day (World Flute), and a random assortment of other items (ie. Memory Lotus for use when AFK)

At higher level instances, it's definitely more than "tank & spank" unless one likes being spanked by the bosses.  I've seen quite a few tanks attempt to spank a boss only to be hit by the boss's Blade Rebound skill and be spanked back.

I haven't spent any money on the game so far but after being in a party last night with another character in an adorable maid outfit, I'm sorely tempted.  It's only $3 or $4 for the permanent dress, not including shoes, hair, and privates.  Or maybe I'll just continue saving enough ingame money to trade for cash shop currency (Leaf) for it.

My 2¢

I've played this past weekend and I have:


17 Assassin
18 Vampire
20 Bard
21 Protector
22 Mage
22 Warrior
25 Rifleman


I hate that it takes 7 days to delete a [level 1] character. Other than that, I have no complaints about the class or race system in this game, I accept it for what it is.


At this point, I feel like the attacks are too few and far between, I also feel like I'm eating up too much mana, especially in instances.


Pots, pots, and more pots. Starting off with 50k health and mana pots is a bit misleading unless they're easily replaced. The other pots I've found have been quite useless. I see there are leaf purchasable pots like the ones I started with, but that's real money for pots. So is that the sink in the game that's ultimately going to have me giving PW my real world currency?


Pets. Pets. Pets? I can only have two active pets, but I can store inactive pets. I actually like that every class can have a combat pet and that they actually help, but are they required for soloing, later on? I need to research pets a little more.


I made my first fortification to a level 18 (blue) dungeon dropped rifle. The process was pretty straight forward, but I read up on it just in case (thank you wiki).


The quests are generic, but not horrible. If I take the time to read some of the story going on, it's decent. The Barren/Nicole quest chain was interesting enough. I'm sure there are others.


The faction choice (sanguine, lion.., treehuggers), whatever they are, don't seem clear. It feels like they're race based, but anyone can choose any of them for the faction coins that you get early on. That should be more clear when it comes time to spend those.


Overall, I'd say if you're not currently paying to play a game, give it a try. It's free and it's decent. I don't know how the PvP works in this game, if it's only World PvP or how world PvP works; I saw an "Arena" event going on, maybe that's more PvP stuff, dunno.


Happy gaming!

so...

Ok I have a level 33 bard and level 27 vampire.

I have been downloading many F2P games lately trying to find a good one and I don't think this is the one.

Unlike most gamers,I like grinding (killing mobs) I'm not a fan of quest quests and quests.I really couldn't care less about the story.I have a lot of time in my hands and I play a lot.However I don't feel like my character is making much progress.

The game itself feels way too "superficial",they bet a lot on their graphics to sell.I like the graphics,because of the costume designs wich are pretty much the only thing I like about this game,it looks unique compared to others.

Okay,granted I like the pet system too.It's probably the only thing that kept me going...leveling up to get a cool new pet or mount.

The music gets annoying,the fighting gets boring and repetitive.I also really hate the fact that you can't just sit down and recover your health/mana without having to consume an item.You often run out of potions.I can accept anything but of all the games I've ever played, this one is the hardest to level up in.After doing a long quest with "nice" experience I barely saw any difference in my EXP bar.It's really deppressing and feels like you'll never level up.

Also the game is quite confusing,I'm not new to mmorpgs but when I first played FW,I got lost.

You get a bunch of items that are "useful when you're higher and/or richer" it feels like they exist just to pack your stash bank full to make you want to buy bank extension items and stuff.Honestly,I think FW is a game they made to make money.I might be getting a little deep here but it doesn't have soul,as I mentioned before,it's superficial.

Well,that's my opinion.

 If you want a game where the scenery and character design look good, not overly bright (hence my belief that they are trying to appeal to the kids with ADD, since bright colors hold their attention longer), and the characters don't have disproportionate bodies. Then go for this. It's got a great stroyline that you can follow. There is grinding just like in every other MMO out there, there isn't one where you don't grind something out folks. The weapons don't look impossibly huge, and the armor looks functional, even on female characters. I have been playing since closed beta, and I can tell you that's by far it's better than most of PWI's games. For example, the auto walk (for the most part) is more intelligent, and will take you right where you need to go. Though not all quests have that function, many more of them do.

I decided to download FW once I realized I had no interest in returning to my Age of Conan level 34 F2P character.

 

I really like the art style, and yes it is very derivative of WoW in certain areas.  Leveling to 25 was extremely fast with their 3x EXP boost.  Things REALLY slow down after that.  I'm currently level 33 and it takes forever to move the exp bar.  Green quests and mob kills give tiny experience.

 

I can't continue with the yellow quests because they require me to level my socialite job and there are only two ways of doing so.  You can run a perfume quest but I'd need to use one of my three world chat flutes to advertise and there's no guarantee I'll find anyone.  There's also randomly given "wish quests" and if you run the "life in the harbor" daily the maximum number of times each day you'll probably get 3 of them.  It takes a total of 20 of those to reach level 2 as a socialite.

 

That means my main questing has halted for at least a week because of some side job they didn't tell you was so important.  I found out when the quest giver told me the skills I'd need for it.

 

The instances I've seen are simple tank and spank.  The problem with the auto join feature is that it doesn't always get you a tank or proper healer.  That's always fun.  My marksman goes through his mana at a ridiculous clip, way too mana hungry in my opinion.

 

I think it has great potential, but I don't relish spending months trying to reach the level cap.  It seems the best thing to do is a handful of dailies and if you're online the god's trial instance of which you are limited to two runs in a day.  I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be buying XP potions to speed the leveling, but using my XP scrolls really only seems helpful in the god's trial.

 

With all of that being said, I have enjoyed the game but I don't imagine I'll stick it out to level 50, let alone the cap of 80, if the leveling remains this dreadfully slow.
