As good as free-to-play gets. Access to an entire game of very high quality without spending anything. Plays more like Diablo 2 than Diablo 3. So good you'll feel bad if you don't give them some money.

Woke up on a beach, talked to some dude who got killed by a zombie. Slapped the crap out of that zombie, then ran along the coast. Slapped the crap out of more zombies and crabs. Found a big zombie and slapped the crap out of him, too. Entered the town, got told to go an island.

On my way there, I slapped the crap out of some more zombies and crabs, as well as some cannibals. Found their cannibal leader on my way to slap the crap out of whatever was on the island. So I slapped the flaming crap out of her, too.

Got to the island, and slapped the crap out of more scrabblers, as well as some water-mud like things. Then found an ice cannibal and got frozen then killed before I could slap the ever loving daylights out of him. That was in open beta.

Now I'm throwing swords, leaping all over the place, Attacking insanely fast, and burning an undying sphincter.

I would absolutely reccomend this game. Very fun, very diverse. Way above average.

10/10 game, would burn more immortal sphincters

Not your typical F2P game. This is a company (Grinding Gear Games) who are devoted to their players. The game literally can be played, for free, without you being hindered in any way shape or form. Every skill, item, level, difficulty, everything is open. The cash shop is all cosmetic stuff (and its awesome).

The depth of the game is fantastic, and no two builds are ever the same! I highly recommend checking out the forums. Experienced players have wrote some fantastic guides for the passive tree and how to build a succesful character.

Ignore the comments such as "everyone uses the same op build" or "same op skills" because it couldn't be further from the truth. Go look for yourself, check out the leaderboards and there is a massive array of skills and builds that people have succesfully used.

The only negative point i have to say is, ingame trade could have been done better, HOWEVER, a website that is now widely used http://poe.xyz.is/ solves the trading spam and is fantastic for finding the items you need. So i guess that could take away half a negative point? :P

9.5/10

If you aren't playing this game, or at least given it a good number of hours, then you are missing out!
