Reviews

“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

About This Game


STEP INTO A LIMITLESS UNIVERSE

Touchdown in the World of Twelve and set off on a great adventure in WAKFU, an original massively multiplayer online role playing universe where humor goes hand in hand with action-packed, tactical battles.

Climb Mount Zinit in search of Ogrest, the fearsome ogre behind the cataclysm that devastated the World, or mark your own path across the archipelagos where the denizens of this world feverishly work to rebuild their once mighty nations.

Become a warrior, politician, merchant, or craftsman, but whatever you choose...

IN WAKFU, EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON YOU!

key Features


  • Turn-based tactical combat: Tired of brainlessly running through the forest pressing 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 3, on every monster that jumps on you? Discover our turn-based tactical combat system, and develop a more creative strategy to defeat monsters that will keep challenging your tactical skills.
  • 16 original classes: No standard knight, ranger, mage and cleric here. Discover our 16 classes, each with their unique set of skills and gameplay. From Foggernauts, the robot wreckers, to Xelors, masters of time, you're sure to find the character that's right for you.
  • Political life: NPCs are so yesterday… Write your own destiny and join the political dance of your Nation. Become Governor or one of his ministers, and make decisions that will impact thousands of players. The choice is yours: decide if you’d rather be a democratic, peaceful leader, or a tyrannical conqueror!
  • Master the ecosystem: Respawn is a lie. When you kill something, you’d better replant it, or you might accidently wipe out an entire species. Our unique ecosystem feature will give you complete control over mobs population.
  • Build your own world: While others offer you houses, we give you worlds! Haven Worlds! Join a guild and acquire your own little piece of the world, to build and develop just as you wish. Don’t worry, in the Haven Worlds there are houses too, and so much more!

I played this game for a couple years before it ported to steam. The entire time I played, all I ever noticed was players leaving. Every guild I was in, went defunct. People stopped playing.

If you had followed the conversations on ankama's own forum, you would have seen alot of unhappy players complaining about things that never got changed or fixed for ther better over the years.

The games population bled out. The it came to steam, and some new players showed up. But not enough to replace the lost content. The game was still empty.

Many people who wanted to buy the games currency were unable. Many peoples credit cards were being rejected for no apparent reason. Popular content was being changed or nerfed or removed, and new, unpopular content was being added or built upon depite many complaints. No explanations, no understanding of the ankama logic was to be had.

Grouping for dungeons became obsolete with the return of the token system and people could just use their own store bought NPC groupies when they changed the loot requirments to allow NPC group members to count in the prospecting totals. No longer needed a full group of actual players to get the best loot rolls. They did that so everyone could compete with the multi boxers.

Some people think it was a good thing, but it was actually bad. They wouldnt just ban multiboxing....they should have. Instead they embraced it. Real players didnt like it, and quit the game.

If you started playing the game now you would quickly discover how unpopulated the game is. There once was a time when merhcant bags dotted the landscape and hordes of people hanging out at the temples. The time has past and gone forever.

Servers have been combined several times because their populations were so low. Its only a matter of time before the game is finally put in the grave. Its a tragedy. This once great game is a mere shadow of its past glory. The game is free to play of course... waste your time on it if you choose.

Hi there! I've been playing since closed beta and I promise that this game hasn't always been this terrible.

The game overall is so very unique, I loved it. The character classes, the environment, the stupid politic shenaniganry. The fun stuff back when this game was fun. I don't think there are or will be any games similar to it, unless someone actually wants to put forth the effort.

I have to say that steam release brought in droves of players, but the lack of Ankama caring enough was something that killed off the player base. They're so focused money, end game content, nerfing every class ten times over, and their other games, that they don't really realize what's happening here (unless they just don't care?). I used to love this game, but now it's just super depressing. The once full streets and markets of the nations are now completely devoid of life. Nothing is geared towards new players or keeping them, everything is for high levels and end game content.

The creativity has seemingly vanished over the years and I have watched this game go from an amazingly unique and thriving game with a great community to... whatever it is now. I have noticed with my return that most of the players above a certain level tend to treat low level players as though they are the scum of the Earth instead of welcoming them or answering questions. I don't know if this is just on Nox or if other servers have the same issue.

The customer service from Ankama is absolutely terrible. It takes them ages to answer tickets, if they even get to them at all (they just recently closed a ticket that I've had open since 2013 that no longer even applies to the game or class I have, they didn't even answer the ticket to begin with). I do understand that they added heroes, but they also charge an arm and a leg for ogrines or any means necessary to actually buy booster packs. This is basically pay to win, the exp difference if pretty bad when playing with friends.

The community is... fairly toxic now. A lot of people will randomly gank you, so having the heroes system is almost a necessity.

I'm mostly upset because of how fast the game died and how little Ankama actually did to prevent that. No advertisements like Dofus had, nothing. I know some of you guys still love the game, but it's just... depressing.

I still play every once in a while to check up on old friends that refuse to abandon the game, but I really wouldn't recommend it unless you have the time and patience. I know this whole review has been all over the place, but I will always have mixed feelings about this game until Ankama starts caring again.

Most of the time went to troubleshoot this game until it finally got fixed so I managed to play a few small hours and then stopped. So support sucks and I only cover the beginning only.

The artstyle is ok, but the tutorials are hardly ever tutorials, most of mechanics and the interface are not taught. Being a first time MMORPG player I hardly can grasp anything at all. The checkpoints and objectives are not really that noticeable in the interface and you have go into some places and get back out to let the waypoint refreshed.

If you are well verse in the 2D MMORPG games, you can go and try. For first time beginners, just stay away.

this game!!
i am a final fantasy lover! i played all of them! (just to clear my point of view here)

this game, it has lots of classes, with lots of differences!
it has a class which lets you capture monsters to fight for you!!! (total win for me)

you can just grind on monsters if you arent much into quests, you can level really well on those!

so far, every single monster you fight, gives you its own equipment set o.o xD (sounds a bit like monster hunter? RIGHT!)
kill a sheep! get a sheep equipment set, kill a pink bird, get a pink feather like set!
i really love that idea

you can craft a LOT, you can run around, plant trees and flowers, sure other players will just take those trees or flowers away from the ground, but you can just replant them again if you got enough seeds
try to make it YOUR world with YOUR pretty or ugly flowers! maybe the others wont be high enough gardener level to destroy your beautiful landscape idea XD
well okay, its mainly just ingredients for crafting
if im not in the mood to fight monsters etc, ill just run around, take seeds from flowers and plant them all over the world to get my gardener level higher :D
btw, you can even get .... ugh... monster seeds (i know, it does sound weird saying it that way)
you can plant those seeds into the ground to grow your own monsters!
but i think it only works in areas where those monsters actually are, you cant grow lv 20 monsters in the lv1 area (sad xD)

IF you are a solo player and HATE teaming up with others like i do, you can just be weird, pay a bit of money in the cashop and be allowed to use 2 others of YOUR characters for your team, that way you have a 3 player team which you alone control, yes, you heard right, you can make up a team by yourself ;) perfect for anti-social people like me xD
(it doesnt stay forever tho, its like 2 euro per week, cheaper if you buy it for longer, but i guess you know how that works)

CON!
1. the monster you capture, does NOT level up with you, it stays at the level where you capture it, which means, you wont be able to keep your favorite pet till high level because it will be really really weak then.... (really sad...)
2. you cant keep your favorite look in the game because the set items get weak, there is no way to preserve the look of an item (as most other mmo's do) so you end up looking really ugly in the end because of 'high-stat-item-ugly-look' stuff

The game wasnt to bad at first but then you grab your faction and in comes the 12 year old trolls and ppl with small D**ks that have to get their epeen bigger, no matter if you are flagged for pvp or not ppl way higher lvl can kill you just to kill you, im all for pvp, but the only thing i saw was ppl 30+ lvls higher constantly ganking low lvls, alot of times not even out in the fields but just breaking down gear in a city, if it wasnt for the constant troll ganking (they get nothing from ganking you if you arent flagged) then maybe i would give this game a thumbs up, but from what i have seen once you get a nation the game consists of 12 year olds and guys trying to compensate for their short comings in RL. If you like being ganked by ppl twice your lvl constantly or you're one of those losers that gets a kick out of it give the game a try, as for me i'm out.

I loved Final Fantasy Tactics A2 and the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series and always wished for a multiplayer version of those games. This game does a pretty good job of putting the combat experiences of those games in a multiplayer setting.

Besides the combat, I also enjoyed the game's environmental mechanics because it kind of gives me a Harvest Moon or Animal Crossing kind of vibe where the world gives you these resources to do things with, and the players are responsible for tending to them or making something out of them.

As for the grinding, I personally don't know if it is actually necessary or not, but in any case I managed to skip the first story quests altogether and head to my chosen nation (Bonta) and then proceeded to grind the highest level mobs and dungeons that I could manage, purely because I love overwhelming myself in these tactics games and barely pulling through.

It also helps that the only punishment for death is no exp gain for a lost battle, reduced stats for about 3 minutes and a respawn back to the previous checkpoint area of your choosing.

I've spent no money on the game so far, but I might in the future if I keep playing. Paying players get some nice bonuses, but I've been playing comfortably without them. There's also some nifty costumes and stuff too.

I recommend the game because it's free and I enjoy it.
If you get it, I'd definitely recommend doing the tutorial and trying out a few different classes. I went through a couple classes and then went with the Elitrope as my main because I personally loved the portal mechanic. My brother went with the archer because he loved the obscene range and then the huppermage because of the elemental/light attack dynamic. There's a lot of variety, so don't be afraid to try a few out. Also, your lower level alts will gain an experience multiplier to make grinding levels faster,
