I spent half a hour trying to make a account. When I made a account for the website, I could not access the Fallen Earth page. It had locked me out. I could not get to my username to play the game. Since my account has already been created, I cannot create a new one.

2/10
Looks like a good game, but I could never play it

After nearly a year away from the game, I came back. First thing I did was get rid of my old useless starter character. I created a new one in a few minutes. I arrived in the starter area after a few loading screens AND, that is as far as I got. The lag was so intense that my game froze three times in two minutes. The server lag is more than just a nuiscance, it is quite literally fatal. As I write this, Fallen Earth is waiting to respond in the background. This game, I have some fond memories from it. Now I'll never be able to relive them.

These Developers also created APB Reloaded. I love and hate that game, but Fallen Earth was always so dear to me. The Dev's really should have focused more on FE than APB. This game gives you so much more progressive choice than APB's "you need to level up your standing with this person to get socks," outlook.

I can't recommend you buy this game. Look at other reviews as well. They will show you what is truly going on right now, even if like me you don't get to see it for yourself. Good luck Clones, I will miss every one of you.

Kinda cool except for the repetition of the enemies they look the same over and over off the sides of the roads
A bit complicated and involved which is not necessarily a bad thing.

I think this game will appeal to you if you are a certain kind of person. Do you like Firefly or Mad Max? Does the post disaster/apocalyptic setting appeal? Do you like melancholy, moody music? Do you tend to like more serious 'grown up' games that allow true role playing? Are you happy to wander around on your own, sometimes for long stretches of time, without seeing a soul? Are you more of a loner (a strange question for an MMO perhaps)? Are you more of a calm person who takes gaming slowly rather than rushing to experience a game in the shortest possible time? If the answer is mostly yes this game could be for you...

For me, the atmosphere in this game is second to none. Fantastic music, incredible view distance that really hammers home the immense size of the game (around 1000 square kilometres I believe - to put that into perspective Skyrim is around 40 I think) and true freedom to go pretty much wherever you want right from the very start of the game. Note though that I play as a single player - I'm not a clan type of person - so I can't really tell you much about the social side of the game. It is fairly quiet of late - not too many players - but that suits me fine.

It's certainly not a polished experience but then, if you're anything like me, that won't matter in the slightest. There's plenty of minor bugs although hardly any will stop progress (a simple relog usually sorts out most things) and there are plenty of minor gameplay things to moan about but, overall, the game is very unique and well worth the download. A huge thing in its favour is that it's a true free to play game. You can play the entire game without spending any real world money. Real world money will get you cool items to wear, cool vehicles, nice buffs and such but almost all of it can also be purchased with in game earned currency if you are patient and keep an eye on the auction house for bargains. It's also worth noting that a lot of the coolest, unique weapons and clothing items can only be earned through questing.

I'm not going to go too heavily into the mechanics of the game - it's pretty standard MMO levelling and crafting (but a very deep and rewarding crafting system) and such but it is one of the very few MMO's with real time skill based combat - think first person shooter - and the whole experience of the game is very 'manual' - nothing's on auto pilot - it's all on you to use your skill to stay alive basically.

Right, I think I've talked enough now...

IMHO, this is one of the best and underrated MMOs I've player on my entire gaming life (20 years of gaming so far).
Why, you might ask me? I'll tell ya.

STORY:
The background story is amazing and it mixes Fallout series, Mad Max movies and also A Boy and His Dog references (if you ever saw this movie, you, sir, consider yourself lucky). The game has an unique atmosphere aswell. Not only a futurist set, but a post-apocalyptic one, finely made.

MAP:
The map is HUGE, I mean, HUGE (already tell ya that ♥♥♥♥ is huge?!). You could spent like 8-10 hours to cross the sectors on foot, if you make it alive.

CRAFTING:
Forget everything else about other's game crafting. This is THE ♥♥♥♥.

You can craft your own vehicles or train your own animals! Ride a mutant chicken or a horse (you can have many, many different kind of horses) or go in a bad ♥♥♥ mode on a bike.
You can craft almost everything, even tents, campsites and stuff like that to get temporary area buffs.
Craft armors, firearms, melee weapon, explosives, medicine, steroids, recipes, foods, drinks, mutagenics... the list is so big that probably I'd spend all the reviews talking about it.

Also, you need to craft ammunition for your weapons and gas, diesel or biodiesel for your vehicles, besides ration for your animals and repair kits for heal equipment damage from fights.

After all, even if it bothers some people, I must say that I LOVE the time required to crafting. Everything you make by crafting need proper time to get done, from just a few secs to hours or even weeks. A single tire for a car requires 8-12 hours.

COMBAT:
It's a partial FPS where you need to land your blows and aim to shot manually. No auto-target, which is great for PvP. Headshots cause a lot of extra fatal damage, rewarding you for your skill player.

The game have a lot of customization, meaning your character can max various skills to fulfill different roles on a party or even solo. You could be a mutant DPS or a healer, a gunslinger, a rifleman, sniper, fight with a big axe, two tires, be a sneaking rogue, a buffer/debuffer leader or pretty much anything.

PVP:
Awesome.
The game is partial-PvP. I mean, it's not a full PvP map, but, instead, we have PvP zones. On these zones, players need to fight over rare resources like petroleum! People can build settlements and siege-like stuff aswell.

The game has 6 factions which the player can join. Each one has it's owns charateristics, RP-related and PvP gear. These factions are at war/alliance relationships with each other.

The game also have a lot of player's guilds and alliances and people Pvping over resource nodes and PvP zones.

MORE PROS (MORE AWESOME IN YOUR AWESOMENESS):
- Not just more of the same. It really brings something NEW and FRESH to MMO players looking for something special.
- F2P (doesn't matter to me, but it's nice to try for free if you're not sure about it).
- Buy, craft and dye clothes and use them over your regular armor on cosmetic slots. You can even paint and customize your car, bike, etc.
- Active, nice and helpful GMs; 24/7 on chat.
- A LOT OF DANCE MOVES, including MJ and the awesome Carlton Banks dance (Alfonso to his close friends).
- A LOT of creative skills that you don't see everyday.
- Welcoming and active community (don't let the Steam numbers fool you, cause the most people playing it are using the non-Steam client).
- Deep and beautiful scenarios.
- Scary voiceover (turn it off, man).
- You have a flashlight.
- Immersion feel on every step you take.
- Level up takes a long long time, giving you some sense of importance in the world.
- Awesome PvP.
- You can fight while riding or driving! Man, EVERY SINGLE MMO should have this. Drive fast while unloading a submachinegun clip on a pursuit, why not? Not a Fast & Furious type? You can do the cowboy Texas style aswell and shoot you Colt Anaconda on the horseback.
- You can have a dog! (anyone remember Dogmeat from Fallout 2?)
- Different paces of walking/driving/riding. You can walk, jog or run and drive/ride at speed as you like. Not so fast, no so slow, the way you want.

CONS:
- One thing I dislike in this game is it's name. Should be called Awesome Earth.
- Performance issues on some PCs.
- "Dated" graphics (I've player UO for 11 years, ask me if I give a dame for graphics?!)
- "Hardcore", even not having a full loot system like Darkfall, Ultima Online and Mortal Online (love them all). What makes this game "hardcore" for some users is the fact that you need build and plan your character very carefully or it could be useless or disapointing at some point.
- Unfriendly interface and learning curve.

For those of you looking for a fallout-ish experience, you won’t find it here
For the very few people who actually read this review, I’m going to start off with everything bad that it does.
1) The community feels as dead as all the enemies I had to kill to complete one objective
2) The game does nothing new, it’s like having a kit named “build your own post apocalypse survival game” written in pen on a bit of tape, to which the tape is stuck on a pseudo G.E.C.K device.

The purpose of a game like this is to do what similar games of its genre did and build on those ideas and make them better. Not fabricate what already exists and slap a “done” sticker on the front. I want something new, with a quirk or unique feature, not a copy paste.

3) There is very little explanation about how skills, items and game mechanics work, only basic key mapping like moving, turning and combat.
4) The story is fairly mild at best
5) Melee combat is dull
6) Quests have a tendency to “bug out” or have confusing objectives, one situation was where I needed to go to a point on the map, let an NPC follow me and walk back to the start point. Apart from I failed the quest somehow on the first try, the game never explained how or why.

When I went back there the NPC that was meant to follow me no longer appears, and as such I have no idea how to complete the quest.
Other situations like questing disappearing from my menu also happen frequently, meaning quests I was halfway through needed to be picked up again from a guy quite literally 3 miles away and completed in one go.

7) Menus are very clunky, from the start I was bombarded by a bunch of skills I didn’t know (and still don’t know) the effects or uses of.
8) The crafting system does nothing new, by which I mean it's all dull bashing objects togeather to make something out of thin air.
It's also crafted in real time, which can sometimes be up to half an hour for some items. Maybe more.
9) How skills work is never explained, you have to figure it out via tooltips.
10) For me this game took over 50 minutes to download, unpack and patch before I could play.
11) I have no idea how they got the screenshots on the store page, I push everything to max and it still looks like something a commodore 64 would play.

So what is good about it?
Well for a start it is actually very well made. The skills menu and the depth of control you have is refreshing. You don’t get your hand held and from the start you can wander in any direction you please.
Speaking of wandering, the map is a very good and from my current playtime I could guess that if you wanted to skirt the edge like a racetrack it would take you several hours to do so on horseback or via a vehicle, it has many interesting points and few “blank” spots. Yet the map still does not feel crowded...

If you are a nerd like me you will probably understand the skills system quickly, it’s very D&D style with character sheets and raising skills that all affect your other skills. The mechanics are probably what holds this game up.
Dialogue feels forced but it’s fairly frequent, not every line is voiced but there are greetings you get from time to time. What makes it better is the lack of hand holding and the freedom you are given.

I know I have scorned games that have committed fewer crimes than this one, but I honestly see it getting better later on. I’ll probably keep playing for another 30 hours, I doubt much more than that.
It’s kept me busy for almost 10 hours, it’s very consuming once you get immersed.

If I had to give a score it would probably be a very high "meh, eye candy. Made me forget I was starving for a few hours"
It has lots of bad points but for me mechanics outweigh graphics, voice acting and story
