“The combat system is dynamic and enjoyable.”

“With action combat and very good monster/zone design, it's one of the better MMOs on the free-to-play market at the moment.”

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.

I pretty much like the game. Though it may be a bit mistreated by its current publishers, its incredible fun. The combat-system is active and surprisingly fluent, meanwhile graphics are just amazing for an MMORPG. It is true that the available quests in this game are rather common and a bit overused, but keep in mind, what else do you expect? There are not that many possibilities for developers to create quests for an MMORPG, except kill this one, collect this, talk to him, etc. etc. Furthermore you actually won't see that many instances but those which you have to accomplish, are enterable with your mates, so they are quite fun anyway and unlike instances in other MMORPGS, these are not even annoying or cheap, infact, they are extremly well made. Of course there are some negative aspects and glitches, like the quite ungrateful and lazy publishers or the "small map", with "only" about 500 hours of gameplay to finish all quests and probably to reach the max. lvl. of 40. The classes are cool, all fun and well balanced, meanwhile PvP is actually always fair and challenging, since you are only going to fight either in the arena a 1 vs. 1 against your opponents or in the huge available PvP area with many mates. Pay2Win does not exist, since you can only buy costumes and other combat-irrelevant stuff -> If you don't want to spend any money, you will not have to spend any money. I didn't have any issues considering installation problems.

All in all it's a game which is fun as hell, but unfortunately it does not use all of it's potential. Anyway I can say for sure:

Now, listen here, just because a game is a Free to Play MMORPG doesn't mean it's a bad game. Although this is the case with some others.
Anyway, RaiderZ is a game in which, surprise, you're NOT a Raider in any sense of the word. Your 'goal' is to kill things. Do you have a better explanation? Then how about you write a review? Huh?!

****s and giggles aside, RaiderZ is actually a fun game, as long as you can fix the lag problems that will happen eventually and the ear-splitting music at the Character Select screen.

I know what you're thinking. "But Horris, this game sounds dumb. All you do is walk around and kill things. Why would you ever think is game is even playable, jeez 101gitrektscrub. (noone says that in a normal sentence)"

Ahah, that's the thing though. Killing these monsters is fun, especially with friends, due to over-the-top weapons. I mean, a class with a 2-handed sword AND mace? Jeez.

But without further ramble, I shall conclude this review with a few words of wisdom, such as this is the MMORPG version of Monster Hunter in my eyes. Does it dissapoint? No. There are some minor setbacks, such as monotone voices the NPCs have, but that doesn't really matter. The skills you unlock while you level up are amazing and fun to use. When you're in a party with a group of your friends, this gets multiplied by how many people are with you (I dunno physics).

played the game for a couple of months a few years ago, RaiderZ was'nt still on steam. When the game had a larger community, during my experiences in the game I would recieve alot of player interactions, the game was so live, there were even some people who were willing to help you in boss quests/dungeons. On a normal basis, i would see about 10-20 people grinding on spawn areas. In the game, boss monsters would, once in a while, spawn only in particular areas in maps. These type of areas are usually crowded with 5-membered parties who would take turns in killing the boss monster. Players would actually take turns, There were'nt any ♥♥♥♥♥♥bags in the game. I just wish this game had the attention it deserves :/

welp, still would recommend, pretty fun, combat is amazing, story is okay but gets a lil bland later in the game, but not enough to stop you from playing tho :)

The amount of graphical bugs in this game is TOO DAMN HIGH. Spent a good 30 minutes trying to figure out how to change the resolution so that I can actually click the damn login button. Launch settings from steam didn't work, and there wasn't even a settings file I could edit to change it.

11/10 waste of harddrive space.

Pretty lame game in my opinion from start to finish, the graphics, the audio, the setting and gameplay, everything. It's like they make this game to get some fast-profit for around 1, 2 or maybe even 3 years and then shut this game down for good. They doesn't put their hearts into it and make it good like other MMORPG like WoW or stuff like that.

If you want to play similiar MMORPG like this, I would prefer Rift, it's a really good game without P2W issue or atleast not much of it, I assume. In the end, don't take my words for it, test it by yourself!

The game is alright up until you hit level 16 and the difficulty spike increases significantly. If you do not have a party of 4 people and don't grind to get to a decent level to not f.ucking die to everything then you aren't gonna have a fun time. Linear weapon and armour upgrades as simple as it gets. The skill tree's are pretty good though. If grinding and spending 2 hours on killing a single boss to get minimal xp is your kind of fun then go ahead and download this game.
