I downloaded it as a joke and this game is so bad, the joke is on me.

Edit: The last UPDATE was over a year ago, and it was an update on maintenance, not even a patch or about the direction of the game.

This game could not be any further into maintenance mode.

Game is excellent. The Post apocaliptyc punk-set scenario that looks like Mad Max makes you wanna keep playing till you fall asleep over your keyboard. Altough the game crashed a lot at the beginning and there were a lot of bugs and a huge post download, that's not the reason i'm negativating it. Im negativating it cause the GMs are a bunch of ♥♥♥♥ing stalkers and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s who at the minimum joke ban your IP, yeah that's right your IP from servers making you not able to play the game again. Piece of ♥♥♥♥ing crap administration and the guy who created this clearly had no intention of spreading it out or have a serious Player basis. 1/10 for the Game Masters.

I actually purchased this game a long time ago, and played it then, got distracted by some other really good games. But this one is online, and has the perks you get with an online game. Thru Steam it is Free To Play, and I can't seem to get the game to start. Did a file validation, there were 11 files missing. I already have an account with Fallen Earth, so I should be good to go, as soon as I get those 11 missing files. What could have happened? Looking forward to getting started again and I'll update my findings. Yay Steam.

i couldnt even play the damn game. i made my character simple enough but the moment i stepped into the starting area the game froze. so i waited until it unfroze and it did. once it unfroze i looked around with the camera and no issues. then i tried moving and froze again. repeted multiple times. apperently this is common and reproducable. the tells me that whom ever made this game either doesnt care about it or are dropping the game altogether. but all in all until this huge issue with the game is resolved you won't see me anywhere near it.

3.3 hours in, i've gotten far, i didn't care much about the character
played with friends, got a horse
we were average leveled (long time, just redownloading, i know we were the same level as almost everyone else)
there was this fenced off pvp zone
heck yes
go inside, rekt some noobs
heading back to horse
>it was dead
someone killed our horse.
we knew who it was, because we heard them in chat
we hunted them down
they were on an intense mission which conveniently cut through a pvp zone
it would send him back to the nearest town if he died, which was about 10 minutes away.
we cut through, blocking him off
"oh sht" is what he said
we killed him
he raged, and deleted the game
i love this game.

Amazing for a f2p game, the feeling of getting your first actual gun is like getting your first helmet in WoW back in vanilla. The mount system isn't perfect, but is deffinately above par. The crafting system is actually really fun to grind for, and the actual explorable world is massive, none of it feels like blank space inbetween more detailed areas. PvP sounds like it would be a ♥♥♥♥ show, but is actually fairly balanced. Auction house system is deffinately well thought through. Although there are immense amounts of weapons, none of them feel useless or like filler. Quests are actually fun and have some difficulty. There is always someone friendly at the beginner town who would gladly accept help or offer it themselves. Combat is okay, nothing to write home about.

This game is unique, and the best FREE MMO Post Apocalyptic Game there is in my opinion.
What can you do in it ?: well alot of things. you have a huge in game map to go where ever you want and explore and not Just one map but a bunch of them. it is A PvE And PvP game so you wont lack any action of killing other people and ofc Those that feel blood is not for them got nothing to be scared off they can just stay away of the PvP area's You can Craft Alot of things ! (Alot of em) from small things such as ammo and up too cars and horses or wapons. you wont get bored Trust me on that. And now for the part that makes it Stand out from the rest of the MMO games is that it got an incredible
Stable currency at the Aucation unlike any other MMO's wich there currency at market places/Aucation houses is Ridiculous To say the least. this game is perfect for people who look for that Apocalyptic game in wich they free to do What they want and go where they want (its best to play with friends) there are factions wich fight each other over Points of control on the map Did i say that this game is not a Pay To Win Game ?! Hell yeah you dont have to pay money Just to be able to even have a chance vs someone who did pay for the dlc for an example (Winterfall) to all of those who Say it is too hard to get chips in the game (the in game money) all you have to do is go to the Aucation house see what is In high demand and figure out the best way to get it and sell it after you do that a few times you can go to just Buy at low Cost and sell at higher prise to make profit* (My Tip is for free ^_^ ).
Now it is true that this game is not as popular as it was a few years ago and in my opinion it is sad and pity. for such a Game to go to waste because of people crying about how hard it is or complain about some small bugs well i have news For you there are no games with no bugs. we are all humans and we make mistakes and im sure that even now there Team is working hard to fix them all. And since its a FREE TO PLAY GAME i dont think anyone got the right to criticize the Team for being lazy for maintaining a FREE TO PLAY game.

A cycle that seems to be unfortunately common with games like this. Originally it was an excellent, albeit, slow-paced MMO. Open-world with a cool Mad Max style to it that promoted cooperation. You don't have supplies or can't kill something? Join a clan and they can hook you up with materials or supplies, even help you kill what you need. The game even had active GMs that were usually pleasant and active in the game's community.

AND THEN IT SWITCHED DEVELOPERS!

The new developers couldn't maintain the old-timers so the community took a nose dive into spiked floor. Whoever is left from the old days now puts their rivalries aside so they can at least have something to do. Overall, it's a shadow of its former self with a dead/dying community. HOWEVER don't take my word for it, I admittedly haven't played in months and could very well have a somewhat active community again.

While this is obviously a "back in my day...!" review, I'm giving it a negative rating. The game is free so try it out for yourself and you may actually like it.

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.
