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.

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.

EDIT. 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.

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.

First of all, I want you to know that everyone that did not recommend this game, did it because of techinical problems, everyone that actually played it loved the game.

Pros:
- Chance for the enemy weapon drop on the ground so you can use it for a limited amount of time and with its won set of skill.
- Dynamic quest system to tell you the game history and change the world acourding on how much deep you are, so you will always be near mobs and player neat your lvl.
- Easy to lvlup with quests, no grinding.
- Sandbox action, block, roll, atack without target.
- Easy to aquire weapons and armor, all npc will make the item with a amount of gold and some ingredients, that you can find on the basic mobs with a very good drop chance, and you can copy the recipe so the game will tell you not only with ingredients, but wich mob drops what. So even silly quest, like go there, kill x guys, come back, gets cool, becouse you will looking for the loot.
- Not stancied
- Loot is not shared but multiplied, everyone on the party will get full loot.


Cons:

- Engine runs fine on low and medium settings, but on high, the visual is not that good, and gets laggy.
- NPCs audio dialogue are terrible.
- Too easy, you will only make a party to get more loot, you can pretty much solo everything on the game

It is very good and free, so... 8 / 10


Portuguese (Brasil)
Primeiro lugar eu quero que voce saiba que todos que não recomendaram esse jogo foi pro problemas tecnincos, nguard e etc... ninguem que de fato jogou achou o jogo ruim, pelo contrario, ele é muito bom... vale a pena...


Pros:
- Chance da arma do mob cair no chão e voce poder usar-la por um tempo limitado já com um set de skills proprio.
- Sistema de quest dinamico, com ela voce vai vendo a história do jogo, e ainda divide voce dos players que estão mais a frente ou mais atras da história assim como mudar os mobs do mundo para uma versão mais adequada em que parte da história voce está, muito bom, assim sempre vai ter mob ou players na mesma faixa de nivel que voce.
- Facil upar sem grind, fazendo as quests, assim não fica repetitivo.
- Ação sandbox, voce vai defender com ou sem escudo, rola para esquivar, e mesmo com o lag fica tudo possivel.
- Muito facil voce conseguir seus itens. Sistema de venda de armas e armadura é bem dinamico, cada bixinho que voce mata dropa ingredientes para voce criar itens nos npcs, logo não tem item pronto, overpower, todos tem acesso aos mesmos igredientes via pve e podem criar o que quiser. Assim, mesmo algumas quests daquelas não dinamicas, do tipo vai lá mata x mobs e volta, fica interessante, pois voce fica empolgado com o loot de cada kill, e ainda voce poder carregar a receita dos npcs para o jogo te avisar o que voce pode criar e de qual mobs cai aquele ingrediente.
- Não é instaciado, somente em quests solo, o é perfeito
- Quando em party o loot é multiplicado, todo mundo pega full do mesmo bixo, voce não precisa dividir os itens.


Cons:

- Qualidade gráfica parece de um jogo dx9 2007 e é pesado na qualidade maxima por nenhum real motivo, eu com 16gb ram e 2 placas de video com 2gb cada, sdd 500gb , recebo de forma descarada a mensagem que tenho pouca memória e devo rodar o jogo em low, dá para rodar no maixmo em quase tudo menos sombra em distancia a ser vista, engine podia ser melhor, mas em qualidade média até um intel hd graphics 4000 on board roda perfeito.
- Maioria dos npc com dublagem horrivel, parece que voce está vendo um daqueles filmes de kung fu dos anos 70 versão brasileira hermes e renato, mas não atrapalha o jogo, só faz voce sentir vergonha dos produtores.
- Muito facil, voce somente vai fazer party para pode fazer o milagre da multiplicação do loot, caso esteja competindo por um semi boss com outros players, mas voce pode solar qualquer coisa no jogo. Saudades de dark soul 1.

É bom e de graça... Nota 8/10

I have played this game in Perfect World Entertainment's Client quite a bit so my play time does not reflect the actual amount of time I have spent with the game.

A lot of people are complaning about technical problems, I have played this game for hundreds of hours and installed it on a few different machines and have never had a single issue. I feel that this is an issue where those who have problems are reporting them and those that are not are simply posting nothing so you largely just see those who have technical problems posting these reviews. If you do have technical problems then I am very sorry for you are missing out on an entertaining experience.

Is this game worth installing? Yes, if you have even bothered to scroll down this far it is worth installing, if you are interested in playing a straightup "action" MMO then RaiderZ can give you that. It is the closest we have yet come to a monster hunter game in the west and it lives up to that comparison.

The game's support has fallen off but there are still occasional updates and server restarts. Hackers do dominate PvP but you can now bypass "forced" PvP sections entirely.

Good game, graphics are okey. What I don't like from the game are the servers, too much problems with them, while I'm playing, it freezes and the monster take down half of my life. It's like all MMORPG, I played with friends and it's awesome, I'll recommend it

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.

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

This game. Ohhhhh let me tell you about this game.

After spending about 15 minutes attemping to make an account, and the website giving errors everytime I tried to finalize - it apparently was creating accounts. So not only am I now the proud owner of about 3-4 accounts, I have to deal with this torment in my email for the rest of my life.

After drowning myself in anguish after the hassle of creating an account for this hell cursed game, I decided I'd give it the benefit of the doubt and give it a shot.

After attempting to log in, and waiting for 10 seconds - it kicked me off the game. Excellent. I figured "hey, let's try it again! Maybe it was just having a network error on their part".

Well, I got to log in, only to see the gawdy character creation that is the downfall of the artistic values in this game. I figured "let's click the COG at the top right and change some settings - only to see some poorly designed Low/Medium/High buttons". Of course with my computer, I naturally press "high" ancticipating an entire graphical benefit and change. Not even a little bit. Still looks as if someone threw up crayons onto a block of wood.

I throw myself into the game, and as soon as the loading screen completes, I am rudely yelled at by the Narrator screaming at me to press WASD to navigate. But during her mid sentence she was rudely interuppted by the hardcore 'intense' music that this game offers, at full scale volume. How unfortunate.

After speaking to my NPC and listening to his stale as hell voice, which sounds about as monotone as a giraffe or-gasm - I decided to give it even more hope. I attempted a strike on a few enemies. At that point, I re-evaluated my entire existence on this game and removed it immediately.

Best game - Game of the Year every year. 0/10

A lot of people are comparing this to a Monster Hunter series but its not entirely true. At a glance we have action combat, big monsters and dungeons. I like the variety of weapons and armors you can wear and graphically this game is pretty good.

There are few things that annoy me however. First cash shop where you can buy scrolls that will give you +10% drop rate (!) exp etc. Which feels unfair at least to me.

The reason I can't recommend this game is simple. Gameplay. This is nothing like Monster Hunter. This is more leaned towards Tera and Dragon Nest. Hit boxes on enemies are terrible. Even if you dodge monster quite often will still hit you, skills and action bars give this game more MMORPG look ( which Is actually not that bad ). Unlike Monster Hunter however you will have monster roaming randomly in the world so you will have to wait for respawn only to find that some player who landed the first hit will get the loot...

Combat is unpolished and it feels cheap at times. Did I mention that later in the game there is a lot of grinding ? Yep a Lot of grinding and UNLIKE really good Monster Hunter, some monster will kick your butt if you try them solo... Sometime trying to find a party can take a long time.
Quests can get repetetive and apart from getting new equippment there is little to do.

Also servers are in US. That means that people from Europe ( which happens to be me ) can expect lags.

I will give it 6/10. Because there is fun to be found there, good graphics ( and character creator ), unpolished combat but good atmoshpere ( Monsters and Areas look good ).

I just can't recommend it... then again you can try it for yourself after all it's free to play? or is it?...
