World is not interesting, enemies are not interesting, dungeons are boring with bullet sponge bosses. The end game pvp is borderline pay2win with the way the shop works. The combat is aim/action based but still uses spammy hotkey skills. Overall the combat is worse than WoWs style due to how horrible the animation and unbalanced the skills are. The crafting takes a long time to do unless you pump money into the game. You can straight up buy the best vehicle in the game, and you have to buy a item to craft the best weapons. This is not fallout the mmo, this is a sad attempt to milk fallout fans.

You like:
- complex crafting
- open worlds
- classless character progression
- postapocalyptic setting
- manual targeting

You don't expect:
- a very colorful cheerful game
- a set on rails progression
- next-gen graphics

If this fits to what you like, then you will most likely like this game. The crafting is great, the graphics are in some ways not so good (character animations), in some ways average (character models), in some ways really nice (for example having a huge view over the open landscape during a sunset).

It's definately not for everyone, but I enjoyed it a lot and played it a lot. The community is friendly and helpful too. There are a lot of factions, an ongoing storyline, and you often have "what is behind that hill" moments. And Fallen Earth lets you find out what is behind that hill. There are no invisible walls (except that you can't enter water, of which there is not much to begin with).

I think the game is very relaxing, when you ride over the open landscape and look forward to have your next crafting items finished (crafting can be done while you are offline or doing other stuff), and at times intense, when you are stuck in a cave full of spiders and slowly running out of ammo.

First impressions:

As you can see (at the time of writing), I haven't played the game much, as such I can only write about first impressions.

Loading the game initially through steam, account setup is pretty basic (log in, verify e-mail, get to playing) except for one tiny detail... you can't choose your user name. The software generates a hash code for your name (around 20 characters in length including upper/lower case letters, numbers, and hyphens ( - ) ) and I have to say... the support team is *FAR* less than helpful (their response : we can't change unique user names)...

Okay, let me rant a moment... so what they're saying is their programmers can't use SQL? Can't use PHP? Can't... um... access their OWN databases? I think not... I think someone is too lazy to correct their mistake. Log in with an e-mail because "that's the username"... but tried logging in with my e-mail and it says "invalid username" but using the hash... all hunky dory.

There, that's out of the way, let's get to the game itself and not the customer service.

The game is old-school. The graphics sit somewhere between Fallout 2 and Fallout 3. The NPCs and "Monsters" are all standing around in one place, tethered to a spot (where they will chase after you for a predetermined distance before giving up and returning to their spawn) ~ a lot like EverQuest 1. The world itself is a little on the empty side, but I cannot honestly say if it remains this way (the internal zones and buildings are pretty cool, and for a game that is set in a wasted world, it's as desolate as it should be).

The story-line is thoughtful and creative, even if it's a little flat and tired. It is interesting, it is engaging, it's just that it's a bit 'old.'

The GMs are super helpful, and I've seen them online every time I've logged in. The help channel is busy, and responsive (I can't even begin to say how refreshing that is)! That said... they have the typical censored chat system that is pretty much par for the course... but don't bother censoring your own words (like: aw s*** that sucks) because a GM will threaten to mute you for language (a redundancy which borders on zealous). Hardly anything to complain about... keep it clean (and PG so you don't offend the super-innocent teenagers playing this game - note sarcasm).

Movement is a bit cumbersome and unweildly ~ but once you're used to it it isn't too bad (such as hitting tab or the middle mouse button to turn on targeting, and therefore a locked mouselook instead of free-look). It's pretty hard to get the camera around front of your character (but it's entirely possible I've just overlooked something).

Skills, stats, levelling, trades... a detailed system. A wonderfully detailed system. APs (which I may mistakenly believe to mean "action points") are granted frequently in small doses for everything from quest completion to simply levelling up your trade skills. Mousing over anything will give you a clear and detailed description of what that thing is for and what it does and what it effects - I've long desired that games did this, some do, but FE starts with this right out of the gate... they do NOT leave you in the dark (as long as you can read at a Junior High level, it's sweet).

Questing is a bit weird to get used to - the map (okay, the map... WOW... if you like detailed maps that don't hold your hand, but make some pretty obvious markers... then this map system is for you - detail, detail, detail... easily one of the most beautiful map systems I've seen in a game in a LONG time)... anyway, the map... shows a little red X on your radar that when you mouse-over it will show you the name of the quest it's for. There are no indications of distance on the radar or for quests, and some quests are a bit ambiguous (really, they just don't hold your hand there - read it... then figure it out ya lazy bums)!

Will I continue playing? You bet. What is the not free to play? Buying keys for dropped lockboxes. Unlocking your entire wardrobe. Paying for premium content (usually access to skills, timers, clothing, zones, etc) in three different monthly plans (from about $12 to $30), not so bad - but pretty steep considering you can get a great deal more out of a game like LotRO (Lord of the Rings Online) for about $15/month, with far better quality and content. Still, not too bad, save that it's comfortably on the expensive side (especially for what it is and offers).

Do I recommend it? Yes. Get past the opening stuff. Put some points into Intelligence and Perception (both of those increase your maximums for tradeskills), and READ THE QUESTS.

If you don't like reading, or actively engaging a game... this isn't for you. I, however, love reading the content in a game (I want to see what other writers and creative teams are doing with their work) and I enjoy a challenge. As such, I really enjoy this.

In short, a rocky start, some negative experience with the customer service and GMs, a bit unweildly and old-school, and expensive beyond the F2P... but a game that grows on you quickly and really eats up time (that's a mark of a good game right there).

Test it out. If you liked Fallout 2 and 3, then you'll probably enjoy this. I don't think it's a "long term" game (as far as playability) in my books, but that's simply my own opinion and nothing more. Plenty of players are really enjoying this game, and that speaks volumes about the overall content and quality.

The year is 2156. The Apocalypse has had an Apocalypse. A mutant army is reshaping the world into mutant hell, and only one thing can stop them. From the toxic ashes of Occupy Wallstreet 2 a renegade soldier is born. part man, part hobo. Your character is leading the battle between good and evil, as it has never been faught before. You are on a mission to bring down a battalion of ruthless mutant soldiers, and save the world. ...is what I would like to say. Don't trust the screenshots that allude to gameplay. Herein lies a tragedy. You will spend the majority of your time in expansive untextured areas doing nothing more than shooting mutant dogs with your busted pipe rifle. Avoid, unless that sounds like a good time to you.

With a story that was developed with obvious care, to the extent that character-respawning is one of the largest facets of the game, you can tell that this game had it's heart in the right place. This may seem like nonsense to you, but a lot of games out there these days simply tack on the story to the rest of the game, rather than the other way around (as it should).

With a game like Fallen Earth, you can tell that the story came first, and everything else was built around there; from the architecture, weapons, vehicles, and equipment, it all makes sense within the setting. With the way the game's story is, there isn't the problem of "when everyone in an MMO is the chosen character, no one is", and the characters within the game treat you as a person and not The Big Cool Hero. Extremely refreshing.

If that doesn't say anything, let me tell you something about my hours in this game (on the other version of Fallen Earth, as there are two in Steam, as for a little while FE wasn't on Steam): I have over 2000 hours in the game, a feat surpassed only by my GMOD hours.

I really do recommend this game.

I recommend it not only cause it is free but because they community and everyone in it is friendly :)
I got told to strip into my underwear by a gang of so called "bandits" (They weren't NPC)

I'm only level 8 yet I have had so much fun already and alot more to come.
The reason I'm only level 8 in 23 hours is because I restarted.

I suppose this game needed a review with an unexperienced, bias ♥♥♥♥♥. Well, i was looking for something a bit different from your casual "D&D" stuff, with elves, dragons, goblins and the like. Albeit this game appeared amusing and had me quite excited, i can say from what ive seen it seems like a bit of a shortfallen game. Graphics (Not necessarily a turn off to be honest, but present none the less), PVP, Crafting (This is not bad, and i suppose some people enjoy waiting 8 hrs for tires, but i for one just never got into it since i just kind of gave up on this game alarmingly soon (i gave it a shot at least) ), and just the entirety of the map and landscape. I much prefer Fallout3 to this game since i am that bias ♥♥♥♥♥, but also that fallout3 gives you that sense and feel of the apocalyptic wasteland. I am one for immersion RPGs, and generally loose interest in grinding MMORPGs quite hastily. So there we have it, and i am aware i most likely left out like 7/8 of the game, but thats what i get for playing 3 hrs worth and then throwin' in the towel. So what im trying to say is, go buy Fallout 3 GOTY Edition. I LOVED it, so therefore you will quite certainly enjoy it to, since whatever i like everyone else must already enjoy. ( Notice: The entirety of that entire previous sentence was indeed bland sarcasm, get used to it).

This game has pretty much everything, except the usual dragons and things like that and thats the main part of the reason i like the game, im so fed up with RPGs always being some kind of D&D spinoff.

I joined FE when it was still rather new and the seamless huge world in which it takes place, really appealed to me.

At some point though, this game went F2P instead of subscription based as it used to be and thats about when i stopped playing, because it became much like the channel packages u get u choose from at ur cable provider, where the basic setting contains all the crappy channels and the channels u really want, only comes in a bundle where u pay for 5 channels to get that single channel u actually do want.

I liked it better when FE was subsctription based, everyone contributed the same and everyone was equally set in the world of FE, no one had special advantages and the same amount of in-game effort, would earn anyone the same amount of gain.

Apart from that, the game has a ton of hrs of fun, especially if u team up with other players and maybe even join or found a clan.

The crafting system is brilliant, crafting takes quite some time (unless they changed it since i played that is), i recall it taking like 2 or 3 rl minutes to make a bandage and 10 mins to craft a small batch of ammo.

Crafting things like mounts, may take up to several days depending on the level of the mount and while that may seem like a lot, it soon becomes very natural in the game as u dont find urself waiting around for crafts to complete, because u actually learn to plan ur crafting and that becomes a part of the game that contributes to full experience in a very good way.

There are safe areas where other players wont be able to attack u and that makes it possible to settle as a crafter/merchant with little or no fighting skills and as u can have more chrs, u can do good by building a "money farmer" to supply ur fighter chr with money.

Missions are good and works well and u are free to complete the missions over and over again to farm special drops, xp etc.


Beware that like i said, its been quite some time since i stopped playing and some things may have changed.
The only change im pretty sure of that hasnt happend but has been awaited since the game came out, is player housing, that part unfortunately doesnt exist, so everything u gather in game will have to be stored in "vaults".

The vault system works well though, its put together of different vault types where some vaults appear more often than others, so the stuff u need the most, will have to go into the standard vault in order to be easily accessed from "anywhere".

The vaults has a fixed amount of slots and ofc u can buy more slots by paying money, but at least (afaik) its still a one time fee.

When u pay real money, u can get your xp gain furthered and basically it means, if u wanna level at a descent and not too boring speed, u will have to pay and so it goes for other things as well.

Id still vote that this game goes back to subscription based, so that a good handfull of the players wont have to pay for all of those who play for free.

The only good thing about F2P is that u get to try before u buy, but that couldve been achieved with a normal demo, i seem to recall that when i joined FE, it had a demo that allowed u to play until u reached level 15 or so, after that u couldnt level any further.

Playing until level 15 were more than enough to decide whether to buy the game or not.

I played this a while back and at first the game seemed pretty interesting, but then I tryed to get an ATV. (I understand this may not have been the best goal ever right at the start of the game.) Anyway, I didn't appreciate the abnoxiously large expanses of nothing. My friends and I were roaming along for a few hours, trying to get to the very distant places to finish the quests to get ATVs. The questline to get the ATVs was rediculously long and it also felt like you had to pay for stuff in order to get anything good. I don't know how it is now, but I don't particularly recommend this game due to the miles of annoyingly empty expanse that I had to traverse.
