same as everyone else, it crashes at every point it also attempts to install some malicous content and dares to tell you that its for safety and that you should turn off your anti-virus, you are having a giggle seriously, its shameful.

Guys did you know that there is a faster way of getting a virus on your computer than waiting for a game to download and then wanting to install a trojan to your computer cause of "anti-hack security" yeah ♥♥♥♥ this game.



10/10 like skyrim with trojans(NO not the people from the ancient city of troy)

UPDATE:
10/10 like skyrim without trojans :)

I only have ~4 hours and I am level 8, but so far the game has been really nice and has not told me to spend any real money.

27.1.2015:
Now after 120+ hours I am having a pause. The game was really good the whole time. Only things you need to spend real money on are costume items which only affect your looks.

22.4.2015:
Why did I ever quit? This game is perfect. This game has the best menus I have ever seen. Everything can be done really fast with just keyboard and without moving your mouse all over the screen to buttons. It's so smooth! Raiderz also has the nicest community ever. Even with the small amount of people there always seems to be someone to help and explain things for the new players. And this game has actual hitboxes. Even real AAA games like the Elder Scrolls: Online failed at actual hitboxes but this gem has them. Why isn't this getting updated anymore? Why isn't this more popular?

Before I write this review, This game has NO trojan. Steam wouldnt have let it get into its store if it did. for those who says it has a trojan is an idiot. if your antivirus says it is a trojan, its probably showing up as one when really it is not. Also, people are complaining about crashes, ive been playing this for hours so far, not one crash. it may be their outdated software/hardware.

Heres my review

DISCLAIMER: I am currently at level 5, there will be an edited version when I get to a later level.

This game is NOT for hardcore mmo players. This game is more of a gateway drug, great for new players! The combat in this game (for what it is) is fun! I enjoy it a ton, there are some downsides to it. such as those random weapon pieces laying around. it makes the game WAY too easy, instead of making you spam L-Click, make it so that you can only use its abilities by the NUMB buttons.

I love being able to spend your points into ACTUAL trees. If WoW had this and a better WoD DLC, I would still be playing that. more MMORPGs NEEDS this.

The HUD/interface is really nice, I like it alot.

The artstile is also great, the only problem I have with it, is the lighting. In my own opinion, I feel that it looks really ugly, thats just a personal preference though.
PROS/CONS
+Graphics looks nice
+Combat system is fun
-Combat feels too easy
-Alot of people (or at lease the server I am on) speaks spanish
+Interface looks nice
-So far, Ive seen a trolly community
-Costumes and armor doesnt look as good as the gear you start off with

OVERALL RATING SO FAR
7/10 alone
8/10 with friends

I'll make this one short and sweet.

Is it good? Eh, Its pretty alright.

Is it the best in its market? Not even close.

Play Monster Hunter for a smaller co-op style game, or Tera Online for a similar MMO with better combat.

This is a Great game I have waited so long..
Why I call this game is a great game?
1. This game is Hack and Slash MMORPG
2. Have a Hunt Mission
3. Real time turn over time and weather
4. Game size just 5Gb
5. It's easy to level up as long you have a nice tactics
6. when you are defeated you are lose nothing, just need to repair your current Equipment
7. This game have an Open World element that make you feel free to do anything you want
8. The world is so huge to explore so you can make your own roleplay there
9. Nice controller and easy to master it

Just a noob who complain into a game, game made for funn and make people happy, if you don't like the style just leave the game and never touch it again, just dont give a f*ck and complaining about the game, that just make other people who enjoying the game become annoyed.

This is a good game after all, I play it for 40 hour's and I am just get addicted to this game, just a tip from me... if you start to bored in one game just turn off the game and start to play another game or just shut down your PC and take a life, just go outside your house and enjoy nature, too long play video games is not good for your health and mind.

What to say about RaiderZ
I have enjoyed playing this game. And I'll be the first to admit it's got it's flaws. And that it's practically a ghost town nowadays. But regardless. One of the best mmorpgs i would have played to date. The whole dodging mechanic and breaking ♥♥♥♥ off your enemies I loved about the combat. Kept it from being dull and target/keymash to win type of game. The monster/hunter boss fights are awesome. Having to actually learn each fight provides challenge and is fun to me.
The armor all looks pretty cool even at low level so asthetics wern't bad either. (Although some swords were just straight up paddles disguised as swords).

However. There are a cons I'd like to speak bout.
Lets be honest. This game had it's moment and fell flat. It's empty of players and doesn't look like it will be changing soon, I don't think the devs care about this game anymore. And frankly, there's a real lack in content. But regardless. I'd still recommend it and you should at least try it out. That is all.

If you are looking for a less cartoonish, and more realistic game then play this, its a good game, combat is a free style hack and slash it takes skill because there is no auto target system or a look at lock on, so you as in YOU yourself have to aim and strike, if you want auto target and look at lock on then play Tera Online another great game just like this as far as combat goes, but it is more cartoonish. both have classic mmo elements like hunting monsters for EXP, or quseting, of course questing gives more cash and EXP but you CAN go hunting instead.

The only negative about this game is when you go to buy from the cash shop you buy chests that give a chance to get what you want, which is a HUGE turn off, I'm paying money give me what I want. Other than that this game is good and you should give it a try it.

The game is great! Everything about it is good. It could use a bit more work on updates and whatnot, but other than that the graphics are amazing, fighting style is different giving that it allows more flexible fighting. I cant say anything about this game is bad except for the fact that it has growing population of hackers which causes server lag. As far as i can see wit hthe races. They could be planning on making new races which will add more for the players to show off their creativity with what they wear in game.

A warning that this comes bundled with nProtect GameGuard, a rootkit, would have been nice. GameGuard, according to wikipedia "hides the game application process, monitors the entire memory range, terminates applications defined by the game vendor and INCA Internet to be cheats (QIP for example), blocks certain calls to Direct X functions and Windows APIs, keylogs your keyboard input". Now I have to make sure that uninstalling the game removed the damn thing.

i been playing this game a since a few months after launch, the game it self is ok at best, staff work is poor, long delays in update. 1 update for an entire year, servers riddled with bugs, chimera and fleetfoot, staf admited to neglecting to fix load bugs, party bugs etc on both servers as tehy arent a priority due to population. very poor handling of the game and very poor management, the game is f2p yes but the power gap between a free user and paid user even though reduced in the 2nd update the game ever got, and it still is stuck at the previous level cap, it is still considerably big. the game is very grindy and boring, sombat system is ok but outdated and if you all bothered to look at the one q&a eith the senior product manager of pwe in charge of raiderz you will see even staff have little to no clue about the game or its content, also little to no events ever.

100% avoid. I wanted to like RaiderZ as a huge Monster Hunter fan. I followed RaiderZ during it's beta, but didn't like the beta that I played. I was JUST considering trying it again before it came on Steam... but when I did it was nothing but disappointment.
It's essentially a terrible version of Tera (Tera-ble?). Lets get Tera on Steam and this game can get buried like it deserves.
Atrocious textures and visuals. Voice Acting that sounds like a robot, the worst in the MMO market. I am certain I heard free grunt sound effects that I used to hear in Starcraft in the 90's as well as Spiderweb Software shareware RPGs at the same time. Controller Support is pointless and designed for 0 usability. Combat is boring, classes are boring, design of the world and monsters are boring.

I could go on, but the time it took you to read this review is how long you would have needed to determine RaiderZ is for absolutly no-one. Don't waste your bandwidth or time.

There's no way i'm going to recommend this game until they fix:

1. Compatibility issues with newer Windows OS'
2. Login issues
3. It even breaks Google Chrome while it's running, you got to be kidding me
4. Issues with AMD card drivers

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T GET THIS ♥♥♥♥ING GAME. What it apparantly forgets to tell you in the game description is it comes bundled with nGuard Game Protector. Which (if you know your PC gaming) impliments living hell onto your machine. Of course, you can remove it. But, y'see, that's the difficult part because it is also a keylogger and therefore won't show up ANYWHERE in your programs list, files. If someone has a way of removing nGuard without crippling my PC please send me a message.
