Realm of the Mad God (RotMG) is a great game at certain times, but then you can feel like you have wasted too much time on it. Once you get to level 20 the game starts getting a lot harder so remember that no matter what you do you are never invincible. I have seen people with the highest possible defence die from bosses. You can put so much time into the game then it can be ruined for you because of a lag spike. Once you die, there is no way to recover your character or any of the items. Play this game if you have a lot of extra time because it will pull you in fast.

Hoo, this game. Was a lot of fun for the first 60 hours...before the company got bought out by a bigger company. Apparently that company had big ideas in terms of monetizing the hell out of this fairly enjoyable free to play game. I enjoyed it back when it was catching on, but I think the game has definitely taken a turn for the worse when it got bought out. The design is more focused towards getting your money than making the game more enjoyable. When a game does that, even if I already invested 60 hours, I walk away rather than get treated like a bag of money by the game's designers and publishers.

Realm of the Mad God is a game that is completely unique in how it actually works. I have never seen a game that is similiar to this one. All the items are really cool, all the misc. items are unique, all the dungeons are insane fun. Overall, It is a well-done RPG but I have some things that I do not like in it. Even though the game is Free-to-play, it is also "Pay-to-win" if you know what I mean. You can still play and enjoy the game without giving any money, but if you want to play seriously and become a "pro" you will have to spend some money. For example, when you start off, you can have only one vault chest, which isn't enough for anything. It holds only 8 items. You need more storage than that. So you have buy more chest, each of which costs 500 gold coins, which are worth about 2.7 Euro. That is cheap, right? Considering you need at least 10-15 chests to store all of your UT's (Ultra Tiers) and all of your Stat Potions, there is no way of that being cheap. You also need more than one character. Each character slot costs 1200 gold coins. You can color your character, which of course also costs gold coins.
Dispite the fact that the game is "Pay-to-win", I still had an absolute HUGE ammount of fun with this game with my friends. Leveling up, killing gods, completing dungeons etc. The game is insane fun even if you do not pay any money.
I also have one more thing that annoys me. Server-side lag. My internet is really fast and I have no lag on other multiplayer games. But in RotMG sometimes because of the server-side lag I die, losing my character and all my hard-earned gear. That is something Kabam has to work on.

Final Rating: 7 / 10

I used to love this game sooooo much and I used to play this game more than I played team fortress 2, but Once Kabam bought the game and turned into a piece of garbage, only caring about profit and adding the horrible "battle for nexus" game mode (after the game got hacked) that killed EVERYONE even 6/8 and 8/8 players like me, and because the game sucked soooo much after all that, many players ended up quitting like me and giving away or selling all there items and accounts. Thats why all the servers are 10x emptier now. Nice job kabam... (note that I have little hours on the game because I played on Google Chrome, not steam).
