*My review is based on the first time I started playing this game.

Ahhh, CABAL, my favorite MMORPG ever. (I have played a lot of MMORPG's) Where to begin, I started playing in 2009, with my first character being a Force Blader called ironman11. That character has been my main character to this date, it's level 166 now (also own all other classes, all around level 100-140). I have played the game a 1000+ hours, and know a lot about the game.

What I like:
- The skill system is a favorite of mine. You don't unlock skills as you level up as in most other games, you have to get Skill EXP to level your skill level up. Back in 2009 you could only get Skill EXP by 'skilling', that meant attacking a dummy for a hell of a long time while being AFK, and then coming back to see that your skill level has increased. One of the best feelings ever. After all those hours skilling, you could finally buy your fresh new skill of buff!
Skilling is not required anymore since an update a while ago, you'll get Skill EXP with the quests.

- Leveling. Yes, I liked it. Because you'd unlock new maps every 15 levels! Every time I unlocked a new map I was hyped! Back in the day leveling went EXTREMELY slow though, now you can quest/grind your way up to level 120 in about four days (I managed to do it, so I know it's possible.)

- Graphics. Back in 2009, I thought the game looked awesome, for now the graphics are outdated and such, but they give me a nostalgic feel.

- The soundtrack! The music in CABAL is beautiful in my opinion, for example, the beautiful theme of Bloody Ice, where you'd hang out to skillgrind or craft. I even listen to the OST outside of the game sometimes, again, to give me that nostalgic feel. :D

- Dungeons. Everytime I entered a new dungeon for the first time, I watched a video before entering so that I knew the quest. Because all the dungeons have an objective, and to progress further into the dungeons need to kill mobs for items or click objects in a certain order etc.

What I don't like:

- Grind for Alz. Alz is the currency in CABAL Online, to get it you need to complete quests, but after level ~120 you don't get Alz anymore. The total amount you get for completing ALL the quests in the game is about 100kk (100 million). That's not enough to buy you some decent gear. I'm currently trying to get a complete set of 'Palladium of Outrageous' gear, the highest gear in the game with an enchantment on it that amplifies your damage output, one piece of the 4 is 100kk (1 slot) to 1kkk (2 slots), depending on the seller.
To grind that amount of money is almost impossible, you'd have to get very good drops to get that amount of Alz. Mot people don't ever bother with that grind and buy Alz instead.

- Upgrading, the fastest way to lose your Alz! It can be extremely frustrating to buy an inventory full of Upgrade Core (Highest) (1kk each) and upgrading your +4 item with high hopes, and ending up with a +4 item after you used all cores. It's like this: 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 6 - 5 - 4... bye 50kk!

- IGNcode. It's the worst gameguard EVER. My game crashes every 30 mins because of this freaking buggy error. Horrible. (Won't happen to everybody, mostly Windows 8/8.1/10 users.)

Although there are those things I don't like, I'll still recommend this game, just play it. It's awesome. :)
That's all the pros and cons I can think of right now, if you have any questions about CABAL, or just want to hear some of my stories in the game, feel free to add me! :D

Played this game years ago, wanted to try it again since it looks like it changed a lot. Tried logging in, the game told me my account needed to be reactivated. Submitted the request, nothing came of that. Tried to make a new account instead, when I opened the game it still told me that my account needed to be reactivated despite being logged in on a completely new one. 0/10 literally unplayable

I would recommend this game to anyone. But, still, the tutorial for new players is not well-made, which makes the game harder to start with people who haven't tried any kind of other games that are similar to this.

Back when CABAL Online was much more popular game I played it for a while. Not so long, I never made it to "high levels" but enough to remember how fun this game was. I remember how friend of my was talking about how you can find hoverboard on low lvls and BE RIIIICH. Not sure if it was true or not but I choosed to believe him. Maybe because I was newbie, I didn't care much about quests - I just focused on killing monsters, finding some stuff and of course talking with that guy who played CABAL for really long time. It was fun times. Sadly, I had other Multi Massive Online RPGs on my mind back then so after reaching... maybe 20 level I never played it again. Back then lvling was much more harder if I remember it correct. Now, when CABAL made it on Steam, I really wanted to try it again.

Bloody Ice theme! I totally forgot how beatiful it was. Heck, whole soundtrack in CABAL Online is great. One of those that always is pleasant to hear. Graphics maybe looks little outdated but skill and special effects - nah, those are still impresing. Maybe it's not so popular like it used to be, but towns aren't really empty and even at low lvls (35 atm) there are people running around, doing quests or just killing mobs. Sadly, there are also plenty of bots and people spamming at town stuff like "selling in-game money for X" etc. While it's really annoying it's probably problem with many, if not every, free to play online game there is. Premium is expensive? Costumes are expensive? I don't really mind about all of this stuff. What I need from games like that are some grinding, someone to talk and fun. CABAL feels more like Multi Massive Online RPG game than 90% of games from this genre made nowadays, which is really sad thing. With all those possibilities, with amazing graphics you could made, Devs are aiming to make another World of Warcraft clone game or some ACTION ONLINE game. Really sad thing happened to this genre over years.

CABAL Online is free to play, so the best you can do is download it and try it yourself. For now, I don't really have high level or didn't spend much time playing but when I feel like I want to play something good from this genre, I just log-in to CABAL and enjoy it.

I tried, I really tried to get into the game. I spent as long as I could but unfortunately it was difficult for me to stay playing. I did come up with a small list for pros and cons and I apologize for not getting a better list:

Pros:

- Decent music
- Class variety
- Cute female outfits
- Unique weapons not usually seen in other mmos (Gladiator Chakra)
- Easy to use combat system
- Dated Graphics, not terrible but extremely dated. I got a PS1 feel from it. Lot of people probably wouldn't like it though
- FPS, being an older game, I was hitting about 100 FPS, which is always nice in any game.

Cons:

- Security Codes, if anything turns me off faster it's telling me I have to protect my account two and three times more with ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t.

- Bugs, specifically with the warehouse not working or loading and trying to chat with nothing I said showing up, which as a newbie made it super difficult to ask a question.

- Clunky UI, couldn't really find everything I needed and most of the windows were almost too big.

- Unclear Text, Had a lot of issues with the red text, mostly, it felt like there was almost too much and made it hard to identify why it was red. Some items were highlighted as not red, though my character still couldnt wear it, and the info never seemed to declare why.

-Simplified Questing, In 2 hours of play, only one quest was a fetch quest, the others were nothing but hunt this and dungeon that or warp here.

- Automated fighting, when I played as a Shielder, my skills worked automatically, I don't know how I got it to work but it made the game even harder to enjoy. Some might like that, but I didn't.

- Objective KSing, Monsters can be kill stolen, making it super impossible to get certain quest done as any class that isn't a dps character such as the force shielder. For me, since it happened way too often, was really the first worst impression a game could give.



I think I might have missed something but it's hard for me to remember atm. I might come back and edit more in, but I've already uninstalled the game. Don't bother wasting your time with this one, too much of a headache and hardly enjoyable unless you're a die-hard fan.

Edit: I see that a lot of people are saying this review isn't helpful because either I have no answer for the loading issues or region locking, and I don't. Please don't take it out on me, take it to the dev's support page please. Link is here: https://www.estgames.com/CABAL/en/Support

Also, I apologize if you happen to be a die hard fan and I gave a bad review about your favorite mmo, I had never heard of this mmo prior to steam this week, and I didn't know what to expect, I had a good feeling at character select but for me I did at least expect a bit of uniqueness from the game and it let me down. Sorry that you expect me to love the game, I just couldn't.

I'm trying to accept friendly comments, but a lot of what you people have to say has been telling me to kill myself or otherwise agreeing that I should. I've only asked that if you have an opinion that you keep it respectful, and people cannot even do that. Do not be surprised if your comment is deleted. I still hold the right to do so, if you cannot be mature about your post.

Pros:
- Good ol' grindy mmorpg, hello childhood
- Beautiful skill animation
- Can run above 60fps on a sht pc
- Dem soundtracks.
- Balanced classes, none OP over each other.
- Unique weapons
- Easy gear upgrade
- Upgraded gear can be obtained via agent/player's shop inexpensively (from 50k-10m alz) , meaning you dont have to spend money to get powerful +9 gear
- Nice game play for an 2005 game
- Nice gear designs [Free players can look just as fabulous as paid players]
- Free gear when you reach certain level(s) [lvl 110 - Red osmium +7 deathblow/amp]
- GM gets on everyday to buff players ("GM Buff bloody ice ch 9")


Cons:
- Ping issue: If you're from outside of the US, you will lag. But that can be fixed with network booster like wtfast or mudfish which will cost money
- Not really Pay to win but sure is Pay to rush (if you don't play pvp/war, which isn't needed)
- Overpriced cash items [the only thing worth buying is the $5 starter pack]
- Limited cash shop costumes / accessory customization
- Quests get boring real fast
- If you still have enough patient to play until level 100, quests will get even more boring
- +30% (or even half) of players are bots [who names their character VGPT2R ?]
- BOTS everywhere, some advertising their website selling in game items or currency
- Really buggy, esp dungeons
- $8.49USD a month for premium [Gps warp, or else you have to waste time running around.]
- Goddam premium man
- Repetitive quests [fetch or kill monsters]
- Limited character customization when creating character [6 faces, 8 hair styles and like 6 hair colors]
- Dungeon entry costs force gems [Non-mission dungeons]
- If you die, to respawn at the spot costs you 10 force gems, otherwise you can respawn at the warp and run back
- Shtty community: You will see people wasting megaphone on server/channel's chat log arguing over pointless things everyday, Your kills/drops can be snatched, Non english speakers spamming in their language, PK in higher level maps (not against the game's rule, but annoying af especially when you have to do quest and some guy just keeps coming to kill you keeping you from doing your quests), but there are nice people who buffs others randomly.
- 1280 resolution, may not considered a as con for an old game, but developers could've upgraded.

For me: meh 5/10

I do warn you not to try spending money (on premium or upgrade) on this game, as I am certain you will quit sooner or later at some point. So far I have spent 24USD and Im regretting it right now.


EDIT: Im giving this game a neutral for now, I may find more flaws in this game the more I play.

A fun oldschool MMORPG expierience since 2008. Tons of enemies. Tons of dungeons. Tons of quests. No graphical issues or sound issues. I've seen a lot of people complain on the crappy connection, which really suprises me. I'm playing from Poland (Middle Europe) on Atlas servers and everything is fine. I can play, stand in crowded places, fight and dance without a single bit of a lag. The only thing that may bug some people is the difficulty level of dungeons, but honestly - it's better this way. One of the best games of this genere ever made - 10/10.

Note: This is a review of someone who has played the game back in 2008 for months, and decided to check the game out almost 10 years later on it's steam debut.

Cons:

- Pay2Win. They literally sell gold (alz) in the cash shop, aswell as enchantments and pretty much every ingame item is buyable with real money.
- High cash shop prices. Is this 2008? It's bad enough that it's a p2w game, but "premium" costs 13$! (same as WoW), costumes 23$. Yep, if you want to look like a cowboy or a schoolgirl that'll be 23$.
- Very Grindy. Korean mmo. You like those "kill 290 monsters" quests? And grinding millions of monsters to get to max level? Well this is the perfect game for you. To give you an idea, to get a must-have character ability called "Battle Mode 3" you'll need to kill 290 monsters per quest, and you'll have to do it 30 times, that's 8700 monsters you have to kill to get the ability.
-No hablo inglés. This is Cabal North America, but don't expect to see any american or english speakers. This community is made up of 90% brazilians and latinos who have no idea of how to speak english.
-Bad Community. Besides the language, everyone seems to have almost 10 years of experience in the game, as well as playing in multiple servers at the same time. This wasn't that bad if they were helpful, but everyone has no patience and just wants to grind till max level and steal your drops.
-Bad Support. There's only one person in charge of CABAL Steam forums, and he/she only gets around 5 threads per day asking for help, and they still get all unanswered. I've also had an issue for the past 2 weeks, which i contacted support with every information, pictures, and everything they could possibly need, and they didn't do anything.
-Armor class. Every armor is class locked now. No more heavy bladers or heavy mages, you have to wear what's meant for your class now. This cuts alot of what you could do with stat customization.
-Dungeons make no sense. To progress in a dungeon you have to do quests, and they consist of "Talk to this bookshelf" "Now go back and talk to this statue" "Now go and talk to a lamp".
-Different client languages. They have an english and spanish client, which is awesome. The problem is that it is not client based, but server. This means that if someone links a [CRITICAL RING +2] in the chat with a spanish client you'll see [ANILLO DEL ATAQUE CRITICO +2] even if you're playing with the english client. Same thing for the class names, if someone posts something like "Need AA for dungeon last spot!!", you have to guess that AA is "Arqueiro Arcano" which is Spanish for FA "Force Archer".


Pros:

- No more 42 minutes maze dungeons in the story quests.
- Quests now give skill exp, no need to leave your character in the training dummies.
- Skills are grouped in "attack skill" now. No more Attack/magic separation, and grindind those 2 to transcender.
- Good leveling up event. You get free premium, free boosters and free items. If you level at a good pace you have everything to enjoy all the good things that the game has to offer.
-The graphics are still pretty. The skill effects are still up to the best in almost any mmo.
-Combo mode. This game is known for the combo mode, and It's still fun and challenging as it was years ago.
-Amazing soundtrack. It goes from chill music in the cities, to hard rock in action zones, it's awesome.
-GM's appear quite often. They usually show up, announce "GM buff channel9 BI", and you go and get a buff that increases HP and attack for an hour.
-PVP mmo. You can basically PK or PVP anywhere, which is something that every mmo lacks nowadays. It even has a nice nation system between player factions (Capella vs Procyon), and a channel that allows you to kill people literally anywhere, even in the cities.
-Frequent Events. So far. since it launched on steam, there is always an event going on.


I do not recommend this game. Although I have put lots of hours in it, I can assure you it's just nostalgia and the level up event. As soon as the free boosters and items run out, It will be the end for me.
The event will end on the 22nd of march, and if you didnt play and get to atleast level 150 by then, or if you're not thinking of spending hundreds of $ in Cabal, you'll be completely destroyed by the game.

I played CABAL Online for about 3 months nonstop a couple of years ago. The only reason I stopped was I got back into WoW hardcore for a while. I kind of forgot about the game, so I'm excited to see it pop up on Steam.

CABAL is not a new game, and you can definitely tell that right off the bat. But it doesn't play badly like some older MMOs do. You just have to deal with some kind of ugly outdated quest texts/fonts and some iffy (yet readable) translations. You can click to move if you want, or use WASD (or reassign keys to whatever you want). I don't care for the camera very much, honestly.

The combat is pretty fun and low stress. The classes are about what you'd expect, your general MMO variety. They do play quite differently from eachother though- very unique. It's essentially a themepark with some neat mechanics. PVP is fun, but very DPS-focused (tanks and healers don't really play much of a role). Music is really weird for the genre, but it's pretty good. (It's like weird hard rock)

There is a cash shop and premium and whatnot, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's p2w. It's DEFINITELY pay-to-advance-way-faster, though. but I think you can have a good time with CABAL for free.
