Clocked 30hrs (level 21) when i wrote this. So is this game worth to try? YES!!!

Before I decide to invest my time in a game, what i usually do is to read only the negative reviews in the sea of positives. If i can tolerate what is negative about the game, i will go ahead to try it.

My experience as a newbie was fun and comical. Early in my low levels, i randomly obtained a decent fishbone sword and an awesome seashell as my shield and that sealed my fate as a Warrior major (btw u can switch classes in the middle of battle much like Battlefield 3). Later, i realized it was so much fun hacking those pesky mages.

The gameplay is like a cross between DOTA + Battlefield 3 + Rakion (+ KongKong Online for the artstyle). Not only u need to be a good combatant, u need to have good situational/strategic awareness and know where u will be most useful. U also get 1 free random gear per match, and you can upgrade/tweak ur equipment with non-cash currency called Happy Stars that u earn after every battle.

There are not many connection/lag problems, things go rather smoothly but you do have to wait like 20-80 secs to get a match going. Regarding the claim that u will get thrown into the game with loads of people higher level than u or much better equipment than u, its ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥/outdated. When i play, the teams are usually balanced and high levels are spread out on both teams. As a freebie player, i am able to contribute significantly to my team and even get MVP. So is it pay2win? Not for the first 20+ levels i can say for sure, however i am not sure for higher levels. In all, my journey thus far was just HAPPY WARRING!

Happy Wars is a great game for if you want to be alone or with friends. You can really mess around or get competative. It does look a little childish but that is what makes this game halarious. And a great aspect of this game, YOU DONT HAVE TO PAY TO PLAY. But you can pay for better items. But i dont run into many people who pay to play and if they do the good items they get are just as good as the non rare.

Ok so was very hesitant on playing this game but glad I did for some reasons alone.

1. Gameplay and balance seem really smooth and balanced and even a crap pc can play this game.

2. The pvp is very well done its like a avatar world vs world style of pvp that is very addicting.

3 different classes hold different choices warrior, mage, cleric all holding their own roles. Such as dps healing/building support and dps/ helping enchant other players weapons with elmental dmg.

4. If you are into any kind of pvp games and want to relax and have some laughs from corny jokes this is the game for you

It's great. Cartoonish characters, simple combat, and customization. It's a bit like castle crashers. the only downside is Happy Tickets. you use them to buy gear. this gear is really good. there are two ways to get them. 1. fufill certain requierments the princess gives you. 2. BUY THEM. This adds in a bit on a Pay-To-Win aspect, but with skill, you can avoid it.

This game over all is not that bad when you first start out. However once you gain time to get up in ranking it royally sucks at match making. Always matching you with players that over power you and continuing to keep teams unbalanced. If there are continuing to match you against players and never mixing up the teams this game is not worth playing. I'm glad its free as I wouldn't pay for it. I'm sorry for the XBox players. It's more plesant playing the Co-op section, but that still has balancing issues. There are also timing issues when hitting opponents possibly due to server lag as the game has kicked me during a winning session. All in all the game is playable, but needs quite a bit of work. It still is fun, but very frustrating. Currently I do not recommend this game. This currently seems to be a Pay to Win game unfortunately. I do hope they improve the game.

This game is great, fun, and simple. If you want to get a non-gaming significant other to play a game with you, I have had a great deal of luck with this one. There are 3 classes (on the PC version) that you can play: Warrior, Mage, and Cleric. If you've played any RPG, you know the warrior is melee, the mage is magic damage, and the cleric focuses on heals (but can damage some). Cleric also helps you build battering rams, ladders, and turrets, which is cool, as well as provides buffs. Very simple mechanics that get you right into the game without a steep learning curve.

Drawbacks of the game are that it is a bit pay to win (at least pay to win faster). But if you just wait around and keep logging in every so often, you get rewarded with the things you have to pay money for anyways, for free. Usually around holidays or big content updates or something of the sort. It's nice.

I had logged many hours on this game on the Xbox 360 version, and recently started playing again on PC, using my Xbox One controller.

The game is MUCH better when played with a controller. With that being said, it is possible to get by without one - as I did for the first week or so of playing.

Pros:
- Simple gameplay that anyone can grasp the basics of in a short amount of time.
- Balance of classes is very good. There is no truly dominant class.
- Despite the basics of the game being easy to grasp, there is much room for more experienced players to play at a higher level strategically.
- You can beat people with better gear than you. Even players who spend $$$ don't always know how to use it.
- Teamwork is encouraged, and playing with friends will be advantageous and fun.
- Frequent events and log-in prizes keep up replay value.
- Good matchmaking system means games are usually even and fair.

Cons:
- Ultimately, the game is pay-to-win, and there are some players who are almost unstoppable given their gear. These people are rare however, and shouldn't be encountered at lower levels. Some experienced players (myself included) will 'go easy' on beginners as to not discourage them from sticking with the game. Others will take advantage of new players and kill them mercilessly...
- LAG! For some reason in this game, when someone is laggy they become near invincible. Unusual, but frustrating.


Overall a very casual yet competitive game. You can play as seriously as you want. Co-op mode is great to learn the game mechanics against bots, who come in varying difficulties. You may also make a few friends in here, who you can then play with against real players.

Give it a go, its free after all :)))))))))

A simple, light-hearted and fun class-based MMO. Wow I'm already out of words here have some bullets

The Good

* Team-based gameplay ensures the fact that players need to rely on each other to win. Your teammates watch your back, heal it if necessary and are all but essential in pushing towards the enemy castle. You might have the best gear, but getting ganged up on by 4 people while you're all alone spells your death.

* A large assortment of gear ensures variety within builds. You might get the same item twice, and that's fine because there's a lot of things you can do with them besides let them collect dust. Transfer buffs, sell it for cash, use it as level-up material, the entire system is pretty smooth and effective. That, and beating people to death with magic flowers always warms the heart.

* Daily log-in rewards ensure that the player isn't always completely broke. Everyday you get some pocket change to use for various item modification purposes (or the spinner if you have a gambling problem) and after a while, a premium item. Pretty generous deal for just opening up the game.

* Its actually free to play. It's completely possible to find powerful gear just by playing the game, and I only bought a DLC pack to have some auxiliary weapons and armor. The kicker? Some of the stuff I already had was stronger than it. Ho ho, take that Mabinogi and Maple Story and shove it back into the cellar, troglodyte.

The Bad

* The game is a bit of a grindfest. Want to equip powerful items? Need to keep ranking up to increase your weight capacity. Want to unlock story missions? Need to keep ranking up. Want to find better stuff that isn't a twig with a smiley face? Rank. Up.

* Matchmaking is a bit shoddy. Sometimes, you'll be matched up with people weaker or on par with you. Alrighty then, fair game. Other times? Say hello to that player with an axe made of tears and fire, with more buffs than your fingers can count. All they need to do is BREATHE on you and you'll be atomically rearranged. This is really the most glaring issue of the game so far.

* Lag. The game runs smoothly most of the time, but sooner or later you'll find that one guy who won't die, lag teleports and still hits you. How bad could it get? The towers and timer stopped functioning in a round I had once, stuck on zero with no way to gain or lose tower control. After a random and chaotic few minutes, the round ended.

* You spend an uncomfortably long amount of time looking at the stats page after a round. This is a minor gripe, but what am I going to do with 30 seconds and nothing but TABLES.


Overall, this game is good. The positives outweigh the negatives immensely, and the game is free. Free. And easy to pick up. Go ahead, bolster the playerbase. See if I care









Baka.
