“I went into WAKFU with virtually no prior knowledge of the game and no expectations. I discovered something unlike any MMO I've played previously - a game that showcases some truly unique features.”
Game Informer

“If you’re a fan of the grid-based strategy rpg, rejoice. While the genre might be dying in general, games like WAKFU will be giving it life for years to come.”
83/100 – Ten Ton Hammer

“Fans of anime, MMOs, nature management, and even sociology will want to give Wakfu a try, if for no other reason than to see what happens when you let gamers run the world.”
4.3/5 – Cheat Code Central

Wakfu is a brilliant game. Wakfu has its own taste, its own style. All characters are different, all builds are reliable, all groups are potent. It have some problems today, like economics breaches and balance issues, but all of them will be fixed sooner or later. Graphics, musics and so are just perfect. Wakfu is a game with soul. Yes, this soul is full of grind, but even coop grind is fun in Wakfu. This game has very good potential.

6/10

I won't go into all the details or I'll be here all day.

Wakfu is a beautiful turn-based strategy mmorpg with some sandbox elements. With 15 classes that can be built in many ways, you're bound to find one with a play style that you enjoy. Team up with up to 5 others to run dungeons and Ultimate Bosses!

No friends? Ankama have that covered too! With a couple of sidekicks by your side nothing will stop you!


There are 10 craft professions (not including Kama minting) and 6 gathering skills all of which, with some effort, can be leveled to maximum.

The enviroment and politic system are maintained by the players. Everything that happens within these will affect other players in some way. For example, Governers of each nation are players themselves and are voted in by you, the player. Planting too many mobs or plants in an area will disrupt the enviroment, as will killing too many of them. Distrupt the enviroment too much and you'll become an Outlaw! You'll be fair game for any passing Guard or regular Joe to aggro you...


As the game is still in development. There are A LOT of things that are going to be added or changed fairly soon™. Guild verses guild, a revamp of its guard vs outlaw system, a couple of class revamps along with a lot of other brand new content.

The game is extremely grindy at times but that's what you expect of an mmo, and there IS still a kind of subscription system in play, which has been recently renamed to "Booster Packs". Subscribers get access to the newest content, a shared chest, +10% drop rates, +30% kama drops (the currency) and +30% exp along with some other minor things.

As to why I only gave it a 6/10. That is solely down to Customer Support themselves.

The game, has had and still does have major bugs and issues which may make you reconsider playing. Things such as complete inventory/haven bag wipes and/or characters dissapearing combined with Customer Support ignoring tickets can be very disheartening.

Saying that, these are rare cases and the charm of the game will likely outweigh this. The game is very playable as f2p and I highly recommend playing this game.

Overall Review/TL;DR (7.5)
Overall I give this game (as of 8/5/2014) a 7.5/10. I'm primarily more in to the FPS and MOBA genres, but the visuals of this game were enough for me to give it a try. To start, the art-style is beautiful, the soundtrack is pleasant and gives the game a nice ambiance, and the animations are amazing! The gameplay (from what I've played so far, which is the tutorial) feels a bit slow, and I feel like the tutorial was unnecessarily long (although I believe you can skip it to begin playing the game), and the controls took a bit for me to get used to, but other than that I feel like this is definitely one of the better MMO's you can find on Steam (not to mention it's free!). I'd say download it, try it, and see if you enjoy it.



Full Review
This is the first MMO I've played in a long time, and it's probably one of the first turn-based strategy games I've been able to play for more than an hour. My opinion is more focused from the average FPS/MOBA player's point of views, please keep that in consideration while reading my review.

Visuals (9)
The only reason I decided to try this game when I got a hold of a closed beta key was the visuals of the game, and once I entered the game they really, really impacted my overall thoughts on the game. The game is beautiful, and the art style is perfect. Not to mention the game's animations are amazing, they truly and firmly "say what needs to be said"... if that makes sense. Not to mention character customization is great and makes you really feel unique. The only reason I didn't rate the game's visuals 10/10 was because majority of the playable characters all seem fairly feminine and cuddly, while my goal when I was creating my character was to be masculine and fairly intimidating. In the character creation, I didn't realize there was an option to switch from male to female and actually thought several of the male character choices were supposed to be female! Regardless, the game is GORGEOUS and fresh, there's no doubt about that.

Controls (6)
When I first tried the game, the controls weren't really what I was used to. Being a primarily FPS/MOBA gamer, it definitely felt weird left clicking to where I needed to be and right-clicking on things to interact with them, and one thing that really bothered me at first was the fact that there wasn't edge-scrolling and that the camera wasn't centered on my character the entire time (although I have suggested on the forums to add edge-scrolling and/or the camera focusing on the charcter), and a little bit in I felt a bit tired of clicking everywhere I went, so I feel like the controls weren't the greatest but still worked enough for me not to give up completely.

Audio (8)
The game's soundtrack is great, it has this... warmth to it I guess, and it really makes the experience pleasant for me. The sounds are good too, and I feel go almost perfectly with the visuals! A few sounds are a tad bit annoying to hear, like these little rabbits (known as "Woodlets" I believe) that did this sort of... giggle, and it slightly bothered me after hearing it (or a certain variation of it) every time I attacked one of them. Other than that the audio is great and well-fitting for the game's style.

Gameplay (7)
The game plays fairly smoothly, from what I've played (the tutorial) it seems like the game is mainly just accepting tasks and engaging in them (like most MMO's), but the tasks aren't always the same thing over and over, so it doesn't really get stale. The game is a bit slow-paced though, which I'm not very used to. The combat is good, and the spells are unique and fun to use and learn. The only reason the gameplay got a 7/10 was because the tasks seem slightly boring and overall not very exciting (to me). Regardless though, I feel like I'll definitely be coming back to this game to play several more hours.

Try or nahhhh?
Definitely try, it's a quick download and is a great experience, I'd highly recommend this game to any gamer (besides my brother, the only games he plays are those of the Call of Duty franchise... that poor, sad little man.)

Thank you for your time, consideration, and for reading my first review! Feel free to comment anything you have to say about it and/or questions you have for me about the game!

Sincerely,

Your friendly neighborhood (not to mention 15 year-old) Sweatshirt.
