Impression after 2 hours and sorry for my english :)

There's a ridiculous story involving two sides who constantly get into asinine arguments. These fights spiral into an all-out war, where both sides draw swords, conjure magic and do everything in their power to take over the other team's base.
Players get to choose between 3 classes - a warrior, cleric and mage. As you can imagine, each of these occupations have their own abilities and attributes.
The warrior, is best for brute strength tactics. The moves mostly revolve around close-quarters fighting.
On the other hand, there's the mage, who uses magic to throw spells and summon hurricanes. This class is good at long-range combat, but is vulnerable up close. Somewhere in between is the cleric, who can be used to erect ladders and other useful objects.
Fortunately, the game offers enough variety to keep the simple objectives interesting even when you're completing them for the 20th time.
For starters, you rank up as you take out enemies and secure towers. Those ranks allow better and more effective gear to be equipped.
You start out without the option to wear much of anything, but victory in combat grants you in-game currency called "happy coins" that you can then spend placing bets on a spinning wheel and maybe winning prizes if you're lucky.
You can also spend currency to upgrade the gear that you've already acquired and would like to keep using. If you feel like you’re wasting too much time trying to find worthwhile booty in battle or by gambling on the prize wheel, you can also invest in “happy tickets”.
Tickets allow you to quickly obtain a bundle of weapons, accessories, or one of several types of armor. Purchasing a bundle of each of the five available types will set you back more than half your tickets, and then you’ll still need to level up those weapons by spending coins earned in combat.

Every match plays out in largely the same way. Everybody starts out at level one, but with a few kills, your character will quickly gain levels and start to unlock new abilities and a larger health bar.
The idea is to capture several checkpoints across the map, that way players will respawn closer to the opposing base.
From there you're only one battle away from storming the enemy castle and becoming the victors. If you aren't successful at capturing the other team's base, then a winner will be decided at the end of fifteen minutes.

An problem is whether players will actually care to fight the same wars for very long. After spending a number of hours fighting for supremacy, I to get sick of the game's sameness. It's competitive enough to be addictive, but not deep enough to keep your attention for very long. It's the kind of thing I might return to every month or two, when there's absolutely nothing else to play.

It is, after all, a game you don't have to pay for. Happy Wars is a simple multiplayer action game.
While it is ripe with problems. You won't find anything original here, but the fast-paced action is both chaotic and addictive. Unfortunately, though Happy Wars has the potential to be a fantastic experience that is well worth your time and perhaps even your money.


Sorry for my bad english. This is my review account, because the low playtime.

As much as I want to love this game(believe me, I do), I really can't recommend this game to anyone because of the atrocious matchmaking and rather repetetive gameplay/modes. It is a mediocre port locked at 30fps. There is no communication in lobbies or in matches, except for the small commands in matches, which do not really matter at all because they are constantly spammed, making them serve barely any purpose at all.

The visual style is both charming and gorgeous, and the gameplay is fun and addicting, but it is all the other negative factors that pulls my verdict for the game down.

There are no official servers or support for community servers, the game is 100% peer to peer. You are often tossed in matches with people from the other side of the globe, then kicked out in the middle of the match because either A. The match was ended because there are too few players to actually countinue(everyone else has been disconnected), or B. You have lost connection to the other peers.

EDIT: A small point that I left out was the microtransactions present in Happy Wars. Certain items are pay2win only, but most of the items are available through luck and grinding, as expected for a f2p title. The happy tickets (Happy War's premium currency) can be used to get easier access to equipment or to make progress on certain quest. For some, premium players might seem overpowered for some, but it all depends on how well you play, not just you, but you and your team.

EDIT: In Happy Wars, each basic class possesses one archtype (advanced class), which are unlocked through the various quests in the game. The quests consist of for the most part of "doing this" or "kill x amount of that", again, more grinding. As I mentioned earlier, Happy Tickets can be used to make progress on certain quests, giving premium players easier access to the archtypes.

The community is also rather dull and the developers are barely communicating/and or listening to the players. I expressed my thoughts on the lack of servers a while back and ended up getting my comment removed.

TL;DR
Pros
+Gorgeous visual style
+Good soundtrack
+Addictive and fun gameplay

Cons
-Horrible matchmaking
-Locked framerate(locked at 30)
-Lack of communication both in matches and in lobbies
-The game gets somewhat repetetive after X amount of hours
-No sign of the developers actually communicating with the players
-Somewhat p2w

5.5/10

EDIT: For those who are rating this review down, please leave a comment and tell me why, I want to hear your opinions. General feedback is also much appreciated.

I really enjoy this game! It is funny, creative, and can be very competitive. I watched my roommate play this game 24/7, and spend his entire paycheck on this game, not regretting it. I cannot believe how addicting this game can be.

I love being the Cleric, and going to their castle, and just breaching it before they even realize they lost.

PROS:
-Addicting
-Worth spending time on
-Items are very fun to obtain
-Customizing your character can be hella funny
-Very diverse classes
-Small game requirements
-Takes up barely a Gb

CONS:
-Connections are terrible
-Lack of team communications
-Team isn't always the best (on the other hand, it's rare to find a terrible team)
-Constant disconnecting and performing "illegal actions"

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes to willingly spend time with their friends, and have a little competition involved.

I would very happily give this game a 9/10 and after writing this review, go back to playing it

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!

Absolutely love this game. I would DEFINITELY recommend it to other. It is hilarious, and just plain fun to play. The steam version isn't as good as the XBox 360 version, but I am sure the devs are going to improve that soon enough. I can't wait until they add the other classes for the Mage, Warrior, and Cleric. That will be fun. :3
