I didn't like it....
The same music is playing all the time. I wish this game had multipile soundtracks.
Also this game is filled with spammers what makes normal chatting impossible.
But this is just my opinion. I am not really trying to stop you from playing this game.

First off, personally I love this game. No matter what faults it has, I love it. You go in, kick ♥♥♥, and die. Lots and lots of dying. And dying. And permadeath is a ♥♥♥♥♥. But it makes staying alive so much more enjoyable. I can tell you, there is nothing more satisfying than a last second escape with 1 HP remaining. That being said, the P2W elements suck. If you want to do well, you'd better be willing to either put a lot of hours into your character, or shell out a lot of money for gold, because that's the only way to get good stuff. And be prepared to smash your computer when you die. Over and over and over again. Did I mention that lag is a huge problem? Cuz it is. And it will kill you. A lot. about 90% of my deaths come from the game lagging. The other 10% come from me forgetting that stuff can kill me. Did I mention that you die a lot? Because you die a lot. 10/10 would smash my computer again.

Top 3 Pros:
1. Addictive and fun gameplay
2. Unique classes and colorful bosses/dungeons
3. Unusually satisfying loot to get

Top 3 Cons:
1. Game is practically Pay to Win (Thanks, Kabam)
2. Community has some very cancerous people: ragers, cheaters (♥♥♥♥ing muli-boxers), beggers, etc.
3. Perma Death (May be a natural part of the game, but it's hella annoying)

Overall: It's alright, addictive while it lasts, although, I feel like the game is dying a bit. Managed to get up to rank 44 (Orange star) (Not on Steam).

High amount of fun and risk because it is Perma-Death. When you get a good character and use it for multiple months, it is insanely devistating to lose them, so if you cannot handle that loss don't get super attached to this game.

Realm of the Mad God is a massively co-op action RPG created with an overused generic pixel art.

The game was decent at first, and i have put alot of hours and money into this game, but... It's all pay to win now.

It really seems fun when you start, but then you realize that the only reliable way to get good items is to pay Kabam or use 100 hours on a charecter trying to make it 6/8 and endning up dying because of server lag. You will last a few lives until you ragequit because of the completely unique yet really annoying perma-death mechanic, which only enforces the motivation to pay.
Ofcause you can manage to play the game without paying anything and have fun, but it will seriously take you 300years to manage to get as far as someone who just put in 50$ on the game.


Don't waste your time or $ on this game, its a dying game and havnt been updated for a long time and probably wont get any updates in the near future.

Overall: Dont waste your time and hardearned money on this game.

I've been playing this game for years (even if not through Steam), and I can say that, through time, it has evolved to provide many unique and exciting features:
- Severe game balancing issues! Land tons of damage with one class and steal loot from other poor useless players!
- No serious updates in years! You can play the same dungeons again, and again and again! And then some more!
- Rampant cheating! And if this doesn't still sell this to you, also know that the company now managing the game, the infamous Kabam, totally ignores cheater reports!
- Poisonous community! Scammers? We got those! Leechers? Of course, the game actually encourages leeching! Racial and homophobic insults? Goes without saying!
- Pay to win!!! You think you can max your pet without spending real money? Think again!!! And if you don't feel like buying game gold, just check out the black market spambots that make the game chat window completely unusable!
- Much, much more!

Hasn't been any major updates in over a year. Kabam only seems to care about money. If you want to play Realm without the pay to win the original is plagued with try Nillys Realm. (a private server with more content and no P2W)

Edit: I don't have 4.3 hours on this game. I have 4.3 hours on steam, but around 360 hours on the game on the web browser.

This game is mostly great! It's a truely great Perma-Death MMO experience. From the monsters to the bosses, everything seems to line up and make some sort of pixely genius of a game! There are some cons of course. First of all it's pay to win to the max. You can buy max level gear and dominate throughout the game. Another problem is that it contains urgles... The laggiest thing I have ever seen in a game to date. It shoots out these orbs that make more orbs. This causes you to often die because of how much it drops your frames. Another thing is that it's Perma-Death, so if you have problems with losing all of your gear when you die, I don't recommend this game. If you add up all of the pros and cons, I think that this game deserves a good review!

first of all dont let my lack of hours turn you away because i have many many more on the web version of kongregate, a lot of people call this game a p2w, which it can be if you arent lvl 20 (max level) which it doesent take long to get to and when you do you can kill the gods in the godlands which drop high level dungeons and gear.

gameplay wise this game is amazing, but very difficult and unforgiving (perma death) you lose all of the items you had on you when you die, so i dont recommend the microtransactions because you lose those too.

also, DO NOT play this without friends, you will not be getting the full experience.

this game is also a very rare case of a game with a very nice community although there are tons of spambots in the hub which is not a problem n the actual game world (thankfully) but the actual players are actually very nice, there have been multiple occasasions where i was approached by random people and offered a trade request (always accept those)
and got tons of free high-tier gear.

this concludes my review for realm of the mad got which i give an 8.5/10 (-1.5 because of the lack of fun in the very early game)

I have been playing this game for four years now. ( I have more hours logged than it shows because I play on Flash projector now ) I've logged probably around 2000 hours. The game is A ton of fun. But it is slowly and sadly dying because no devs work on the game anymore. I just hope they put a dev or two on the game, or sell it to someone who will. Long live rotmg. Get the game, try it out. It's enjoyable.

Great F2P Game

Great Bullet-Hell MMO , which is F2P. It offers alot of classes, items , realms , dungeons , monsters and gods. It got prema death , which made me better player overall. When u die there is no way to retrieve your character. U lose all your items and gear u had on this character. If u find good stuff u can save it in the Vault and later use it with other character. Great leveling system and ranking system. The leveling system is simple: U kill an enemy and u get XP , u got 20 levels , when u reach Level 20 , u dont get anymore XP and instead u get FAME . The fame is for the ranked system. With every class ,when u earn FAME , u complete your class quest. Every completed class quest gives u Star. When u get alot of stars , for example : 28 u get Red Star Which is your rank. Thats how the level and ranked system work. Alot of people say the game is P2W. Well the answer is NO . Yes u can buy all the items from the start with real money , but if u play alot and try harder , u can take these items from the dungeons and stuff. So the game is NOT P2W .

There is a few bad things in the game

  • There is ALOT OF BOTS AND HACKERS , and the developers dont do anything about it.
  • The servers sometimes stops or lags alot
  • Theres alot of spammers on the Nexus ( Spawn )

Overall i recommend this game , or atlest try it. Its good F2P and alot of fun.

I just want to say my own thoughts, how to know if something's truly good or bad? Try it, try it for youself and decide. Give yourself a couple hours to dabble in it.

I've played this game on a website - Kongregate for games which was quite some time ago, it was a fun experience as a whole for me. Exploring new areas, killing new enemies, getting items and trying out new classes. When I saw this on steam, I was happy to see it still doing well. This really kindled my fire for pixel roguelike games, that was hidden away somewhere in my heart, quietly smothering away. I only played it for a while not because it wasn't fun anymore, I had a large pile of urgent work and etc to do. It sure does feels a little sad now when I look back at myself when I was younger.
