I'm really suprised this game has a mixed rating, because it's a very good one! This game isn't for who are looking a good graphics, it is focused on gameplay, interaction and etc... I really don't like RPG games for true. I like games like Gta, but somehow, this game made me be curious and i really decided to download it, and see what would happen. In first minutes, you don't have any clue, any idea of what you have to do and this is the part where a lot of players give up to the game, because almost no one'll help you thought your adventures. You have to have patience, this is the best part of the game. You will be discovering new stuffs, new things to collect, new NPC'S by yourself. The is game is fully of players in almost every part of the map. You have an unexplainable freedom to do whatever you want, and you can do the quest any time you wish. The main thing that made me like this game, is the fact you can have a bike, a car or a horse. there's a good number of vehicles, Atv's and etc.. You can repair your vehicles, paint them, you have to feed your horse, youo have a garage. You can trade your stuf with players or sel them to some specific NPC'S. You'll be playing GTA and dark souls at same time, because this game is very hard.

Why this is a very good game:


- If you die, you won't need to walk hundred of kilometers to pick up you vehicle again. There are some bases near some quest places you can spawn, and you can take your vehicle back easily where you left before be killed.

- Wasn't made for who is looking for a good graphics game. Fallen Earth, is focused on gameplay.

- Unexplainable freedom.

- It's a very hard game, you must have patience and sense of exploration, or you'll give up easily.

- You can play GTA and Dark Sould at same time, choosing if you want to be a casual player, or a high level monster killer.

- You can fight against other players, while defending or invading a base.

- You can craft a lot of stuff, since a simple clothes or even an expensive car.

- You can scavenge stuffs.

- You can do some quests that require a higher level, but of course, you'll die easily.

- Very good interaction.

- You have a lot of skills to improve. Also, you'll earn XP points, and you can spend it upgrading your skills.

There's a lot of things, but you need to play a lot of time to find out. This is just a 1000 square kilometers map!

Cool game to play with your friends/roleplay/explore. The world is pretty cool and the crafting system is neat but it's also a bit grindy. Would recommend for people who like to grind or roleplay with their friends. THANK YOU.

Yeah its a little out dated here and there but its a huge open world mmo rpg. You can do whatever you want before touching the missions/quests. Crafting is great and yeah its a grind but do you want things handed to you? Or do you want to feel proud about hacking down 1000 mutant chickens to get said equipment? Way under the table and I feel like this game needs to be spoken about. Try it, what do you have to lose? Sooo many things you can do and build/craft/grow.. Still cant make that more clear! Alright I'm done.

Strong playerbase and 100% free of cheaters. PvE is so dynamic and engaging, always something new and interesting every time you play. PvP is super active and easy to pick up, almost no learning curve at all. To top it all off it has an incredible economy, you can find almost anything you want in the Auction House at prices anyone can afford.

The biggest downside to this game is its small community. It is a lot like fallout but with a much more explorable open world. Too few players. Give it a try, I't is free and you might like it

I was a fanatic for this game, I couldn't get enough, clearly. It WAS a great game many years ago but as it was expanded and the combat system was changed several times the game became unbalanced with every change. The current build sytem defeats the purpose of builds since it's either one extreme or the other, no balance. PvP died several years ago due to all of this. So there was PvE for a while but the game went from 100's of players online @ all times to about 100 and it's down to about 50 or less, because most of the 50-75 online are AFK. PvP zones are dead, I should have quit several years ago, but I'm a diehard.

It's free to play but now ridiculous grinding to get the best weapons and armor to be able to duel. You'll need an overwhelming build just to compete. The game is nothing but CTF and duels between a few players that are playing some other game than what it was intended to be. You could check it out but don't expect it to be anything other than ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t and grinding just to get the equipment and stats to compete with 2-5 players.

The game is dead, I'm not exagerating, it's on life support.
It's pay to win but there's no reason to put any money into it, they're just sucking it dry before they shut it down.

Yes I'm still playing it sadly, haven't been able to find a game with the veteran community this game has. It's all about the nostalgia for me, kicks and giggles. I'll be playing until it's shut down, I'm an addict, I need help. :D

Not like Fallout gameplay if that's what you're looking for.
It plays more like a tabletop RPG might if it were live action, and your enemies were dumb.
I still enjoyed it. There is so much to craft and build, and fight.
I haven't even scratched the surface.
I kind of wish the more fast travel existed in the early game (I haven't gotten very far), but I sometimes enjoy walking around slow and taking a while to get around.

I have a lot more time than Steam says, because it only counts time that the Launcher for the game is open.

I'm new to this game that's why I can't tell you much about this yet. This game, as the others says, is a post-apocalyptic MMORPG. I love this game even though there are small number of players. Yes, there are still players playing this game that's why it is not yet "DEAD". If you have a problem in-game, just ask in the chatbox and many will respond to you. They will help you a lot. There are also many quests (main or side quests). It is not that easy to level up but it is fun killing and tracking monsters. You can craft, ride horses/vehicles and so on. As of now, that's the only thing I can say. I recommend this game. I'm not telling you to expect that it is a good game, but for me it is awesome. It's still best if you review it yourself. Have a nice day!

It's been 7 years or so, since I first started to play this game. For almost 2 years, I was barely surviving around Midway, trying to search for resources, never heard of Crafting recipes. Might sound like a bad joke, but truth be told, I was making some chips through the scavanging and buying new weapons, killing NPCs, then scavanging again. I was in love with what I've been doing, although I did not know at all anything about how the game works or where I had to go. In time, I was gaining a lot more knowledge about the game while growing. Sadly, humans can't understand many things at such a young age. It is 2016, almost winter, almost turning 2017. One year ago, the game has lost a massive amount of players, yet, Veterans still have the Fallen Earth blood running through their veins, keeping the game alive. All respect. I also count myself.

- Now for some Withs and Againsts -

Still alive, awesome crafting system, awesome game, in such a player crisis it can always become a single player, weekly maintenances and monthly updates The title of 'massive multiplayer' is lost so hopefully it will come back later on, 8 years and yet no graphics changes, most of the hazmats / moderators are abusive and might ban for no reason, marketplace prices

It's been ages. Time bites slowly from our unprotected Legion flag, they have shut our only gate back to the Fallen Earth's world, back to our Home. We only needed 1 year to devastate the chaos and bring law in the wastes. Now, that's how we get our pay...

Three thousand legionaires, two thousand who threw blood, one thousand who managed to place our Legion signs and flags on the cleaned wastes of evil entities. Now we slowly sit, and watch, how the world dies and any other up-coming civiliation will forget about us, like they forgot about what's in the dangerous wastes.

We fought against everything we could, but what for? Now we give our last breath, leave our bodies in the wastes, among with the honor of our name that will forever be forgotten, The Rising Phoenix Empire

This world has fallen, but I would rather fall with it than cowardly run like the others.

The more people joins, the more the game revives. You won't find a better place to roleplay. This is more than roleplay. This is Fallen Earth, and you have the blood of a wastelander, so join us!
