I am recommending this game based on pure nostalgia. After almost 3 years of playing this game, I downloaded it on Steam. I wish I could see the amount of hours I spent in this game over the years... or do I? Let's be real, there are innumberable amounts of far surperior MMOs. But this one will forever hold a place in my heart. If you have some time to kill, then grab some buds and mess around on this game for a bit.

most people may say this game is p2w, and i kinda agree with them, but at the same time, it's not.
if you truly are noob, lots of people will donate to you and give you more than 1 silver coin, which is worth 999 coppers
this game is pretty good if you get a lot of people to donate to you, thats what i did, i did spend a little bit of money, but only for fashion, not for any stupid XP Boosters or stuff like that, just farm with the high level 100s

other than that this game is completely @!#@!

A F2P PLAYER'S REVIEW!

Well nearly 2k hours into fiesta and still haven't decided to write something about it I figured I'd write one now, anyway, your probably wondering why I'm not recommending this game. Clearly 1.8k hours I SHOULD know something about fiesta and how it works. Well your in luck as I do, bare bones this game is extremely P2W and grindy as **** to the point that it just became to much.

Now in some more detail about this game:

Lets start with the bad parts of the game!

-The cash shop:

Most MMORPGs usually have a cash shop which you buy stuff from and for me personally any cash shop that offers boosts to a player's stats things such as DMG,crit, crit rate, HP or whatever form of boost aren't exactly something I like unless it's from a event or obtainable via in game boss or dungeon run things of that nature that can give F2P players the same opportunities as P2W players and I do understand that companies must be profitable to maintain operations of a game however fiesta I feel just lets you download the game for free just to make a few hundreds or more off of you and make you work your *** off for close to nothing. Not only that but their cast shot is virtually stat boost that only last for 30 days at a time before you have to buy something to replace your old outfit.

What's also kind of funny the cash shop can make a mage into a tank.
-The community:

Now this one is a little hard to put on the bad however there are a lot more bad apples then there is good ones when I first started playing this game I joined a guild abid it was a small guild with a good guild leader and members and they REALLY were the only people that kept me playing for as long as I did, however, a more big guild eventually absorbed our guild into it and I met a much larger community and that's when I realized how bad the community really is most of the level 100+ abid some aren't as bad as others but still it's bad most people I met seemed to be WAYY to power hungry and into PvP (Which is really broken due to the nature of the game) ill admit that being power hungry isn't a bad thing or being into PvP, however, one instance from the guild I was in one of the strongest players (We had 2-3 of the top players in our server) in our guild decided that instead of sharing loot which was distributed by how many runs you do which normally take about 2-3 hours to get done per run to keep the loot they got that did get our guild leader angry but decided to let them keep the loot because of the fear of losing one of our top players rather then keeping his word and promises to the other within our guild.

For as long as I've been with this game I did noticed that newer player areas really don't have any life to it normally you wont see other players in Roumen (Newb town) or they'll be afk or something like that. Most people that are lower levels get power leveled by higher level players normally for free or they'll ask for gold in return for leveling (yes it's not against the TOS at least the power leveling part is not so much the asking for money part).

-Events...

This one is pretty short, Events in this game are practically nothing. Most events are done on forums which I can say just is lame because it gives the game a feel of nothing interesting is happening which is most part nothing IS happening. And when a event is out it's normally just something for Halloween or xmas that's really the only 2 events you are normally guaranteed to have. Most other events happen on blue moons or out of the blue.

-The player market

Another short one I'm getting tired of writing so ill try to keep everything from here on out short. The player market everything is really over priced even after I quit the prices of things only really just gone up and that's about it. It's a real problem.

-Scammers

Not that often you'll find people that would go out of their way to screw you over for money or whatever but a common scam in this game is gifting this game does let you gift cash shop items from other players sweet and all right? Wrong, as people normally know you need to spend money to be able to even gift (I don't know much about it as I never gifted or brought items from the cash shop) Scammers know this and would say something like give me the money first and ill gift you first or if they want to get something for free from a gifter they'll asked to be gifted first. There are other scams out there, however, that's the most common one other scams aren't done as much however that's the most common one out there.

-THE GRIND

OH GOD, Can I say this game becomes just to grindy to the point you have to do it for hours to just see 5% for level 105 at black bear repeat quest with a party of level 100-105 this game starts to get grindy at levels 61+ and slows and slows down a lot to the point it's not fun to play even with a group of high level players the grind becomes old pretty quick.

The good of this game FINALLY!

So here we are at the good things about fiesta good on you if you read this far into it.

-The community

While this is in the bad part it also has it's good bits it really does if your able to find a guild or a group of players to play with regularly this game becomes VERYYY addictive because of how fun it can be to run a high level kingdom quest or do group repeat quests to level up.

-It's about as classic of a MMORPG as you can get

Title says it all fiesta is for the most part the most classic of a MMORPG as you can get to at least as far as I know.

-The end-

I know this review isn't a perfect one at all but I do hope it help you out a fair bit in not picking this game up. my personal rating of this game it would have to be 3.3 out of 10.

*I don't intend to rework this review anytime soon nor will I probably play this game again as it is WAY to p2w.

Fiesta Online NA is a free to play MMORPG that started in 2007. It worked, sounded ok, looked ok, played ok, was understandable. Had some sort of tutorial help pages. Has anime styled world and characters with cel shaded graphics and cute stuff.

IMHO, a terrible starting character experience. Having started an Archer, i had no money, no gear, having no starter bow and no starter archer skills. Skills cost copper money. Found a several quests to attack i guess begginning critters using hand attacks. 2 had rewards for hat and boots. Looking in the steam forum and negative review saying this game is highly Pay to win.

I didn't like this game, try it if you want to pay real money to win.

Here's a review for you, I have been playing since the beginning and took a break. now all you have is low bandwidth on the servers, bot players run wild, & now full of glichs that somehow can't be fixxed no matter how many server updates happen. Gamico will tell you the servers will be up in 30 minutes tops what they mean is get on tomorrow the servers down all day sorry for your bad luck. For any one looking for a good game this use to be one now we just have to wait till some other company get's ahold of this and fix's every one's issue's.

Playing since 2009

Pros
Chars are pretty.
Simple gameplay

Cons
Heavily pay2win ( cash shop increases your damage and def for more than 100%, not counting the enhancing that brings that to 400%)
Relies on gambling in the shop to get the best item and to enhance making the prices sometime skyrocket.
As a general rule if you enhance all your set expect to pay 100$ every 5 levels. Expect to pay 30-50$ a month for extenders tevas suit. more if you charm alot.
Impossible to play competitively as a free player

No class balance.

No strategy anywhere. Get a tank get 2 healers and get 40 players attacking in the back that won't get hit at all.

Obselete raid system where 40 players will attack the boss and only one party gets a drop.

Leveling system designed for no-lifers unless you put in cash shop.
Corrupt staff
Lazy publishers. Monthly patches at best and most of the time it's only fixing text glitches.
Only thing they work on is thinking of new more powerful item to make you spend more.

Even the steam page is outdated of at least 2 years. That show how they abandoned it.

If you're an old player you'll like the game. It's fun and simple.
If you're a new player looking for a mmo. skip this.
This one is too old and is dying.
Gamigo tries to keep it longer for the money it brings but it will be dead soon.

This was my first MMO. I started it when I was 10 and played it for about a year and a half. In that time I met many good friends. Some of which I still speak to today. The game provided a very fun outlet for me for a little over 900 hours. I played this before it was on steam though. So my hours aren't necessarily shown here. I played when the game was owned by Outspark. The community is really nice and helpful and the game has good progression, good dungeons to crawl with other players. Though I'm not sure how populated the game is now. Overall very fun if you find a few friends to play it with or make friends along the way. Im recommending this from biased nostalgia. Because it was fun and I enjoyed it. I would most likely still be playing it if I could figure out what happened to my account after they switched owners and websites.

PS. The nostalgia factor with this game is strong. I miss a ton of my old friends that I lost when I lost my account. Most notably DarkArcher97.

EDIT: I just realized they now paywalled a lot of things ingame :/. Not cool. Changing my recommendation because of this. Why must devs try to suck cash out of everything?!?!

Oh Fiesta Online you bring back me back. Back to when I knew so little about MMORPGs and introduced me to a world of fantasy,adventure, long time friends....and sucking my wallet dry!

Now this is a story all about how
this game will make your funds go down
the nostalgia is gone this game will set a flame
I'll tell you how why you shouldn't bother to get this game

Welcome to fiesta! Create your character! We have many options for you to try!
Oh what's that? There’s only three? We we have way more but you need to buy!
Its just a small fee, maybe 5 bucks or ten!
And then you'll never have to worry about it again... >.> (but if you change your mind you'll have to pay again)

Time to play the game and now you're in your first raid
Now look at all the the players that paid
They're stronger, better and can take a hit
Their costumes look awesome while you look like ♥♥♥♥

Now now don't be sad and throw a fit
All you have to do is buy this kit
its full of great power ups and costumes galore
but because its bundled you'll have to pay a little more

There ya go, just look at you, hanging with the best
You rule this game now so stick out your chest!
But oh no.. what this? your shiny gear is gone?
Well you only got the small pack and it doesn't last long..

But now if you want the permanent kind
just pay a little more and just keep in mind
that permanent power ups are very rare
so buy them fast before they fade into thin air

Oh nice, lucky you, you found a great weapon
and you want to improve it for better protection
but if you want to make sure that it doesn't get destroyed
then pay a little more so you can fully enjoy...

Wait! What's wrong? Where are you going!?
I know it seems a lot that you are owing...
Fine! Forget you! You can see my sin...
I got all your money and you can't even log in!

Fiesta Online is a typical, generic free-to-play-buy-to-win anime MMORPG played by a dead community that consists of veteran players who have invested too much time and money on this game to let it go~ Basically living in denial. In a world where you can't even change your graphics quality, players assume the role of a fantasy hero and play out their life long dreams of being anime characters; desu-desu. Regular bug fixes, rehashed events, and more than 115 levels of doing the same thing over and over again with hundreds of hours of gameplay (thousands if you don't buy $500 worth of microtransactions) await you!

Having a hard time hitting that next level? Well don't worry we got 150% EXP Boosters there for you. This allows you to level up twice as fast! Now it'll only take 15 gameplay hours to go from 80-81!

Drop rate boosts are also available so you don't have to spend 10 hours killing the same Great Goblin King over and over for a chance at that rare item!

Lets not forget mounts! Even you can run around at the speed of sound with these guys! (Food for the mounts must be bought separately from the cash shop)

Who wants charms? These charms let you wreck any other player or monster in this game easily. Build a full physical damage Mage and still kill kiddies with your 200% boosted stats.

Can't enchant your item because there's a 90% chance of it breaking and going away forever? Buy some ENCHANT BREAKING PROTECTION. Want to upgrade the chance of the item actually upgrading? Buy some UPGRADE CHANCE FOR UPGRADING stones. Want to upgrade the upgrade amount per upgrade? Buy some more unfair ♥♥♥♥.

Either spend your life playing this to get better or pay to improve instantly. If you don't believe me on how much of a big deal this game's in-game cash shop is, try it out for yourself. Hell I played this for 3 years and thought it was great, then I graduated elementary school and got a PC.

I remember back in the days playing Fiesta Online for hours with friends and family with my old computer that would play the game on 13-22 fps, this was back when every server was extremely populated, where people were trying to go into raids as soon as possible because of the capacity limit, and when people would stay up late at midnight to wait for GMs to start awesome events with the community, but now this game has become a relic of the past. Fiesta Online was a good game and will forever be a special memory to me.

I remember playing this game back in the day when I was but a wee boy. I remember loving this game and spending hours and hours online with a community that was actually a joy to be apart of. One day, I just stopped playing Fiesta, and moved on with other games.

When I saw that Fiesta had found its way to steam, I was surprised to see it was still alive. I'm not sure how its still around, considering how bland and repetitive it is. It's your typical Korean mmo grind fest with an uninspired tab targeting combat system and a pay 2 win cashshop.

I guess the only thing that would keep someone around would be the community. Its a shame there isn't one anymore. The game feels dead and empty. At one point in time, areas that would be bustling with activity and parties are now nothing more than barren maps with the occasional mob of enemies here or there. From what Ive seen, the towns are dead, say for the few newcomers who downloaded the game out of curiosity. I can only assume the sight of an empty starting town won't keep them playing for very long.

Fiesta kind of reminds me of the world in Dark Souls. It's past its prime, and its waiting for the end to come. But in Fiesta's case, it's seems like the sooner that happens. the better

This game is pretty much dead in the water. I played this game in it's first few years, 2007-2010, and it was great.. I made lots of online friends (many of which i still keep in touch and/or play other games with) and generally had a really good time. The game itself is a generic mmo with rather simple mechanics, it's essentially a beginner's MMO... but of course that's not what made Fiesta fun, what made it fun was the social aspect.. unless you make friends and join a guild you ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE FUN, this game isn't for "lone wolfs" that are just looking to play a game and level up because it gets extremely tedious.
I downloaded this game again after seeing it on Steam while mindlessly browsing in order to see how much it has changed and damn, has it changed. This game is now just a shadow of the shell of what it used to be..that's right, it's not even just a shell of it's former self, it's the shadow of it's shell... the reason being, there's very few people playing and even fewer new players getting into the game, it's currently Friday night and the server populations are all on Low.... It's mostly just populated by a handful of true newbies that in all likelyhood won't make it past level 50 and the rest are veteran gamers that have sunk way too much time and/or money to quit, which is made evident by the high number of not only high level characters but also mid to low level characters with +9 - +11 gear whom are most likely just alts belonging to veterans. I looked around the low level maps and saw only a few people doing quests, all of them by themselves of course.. Roumen to Uruga ( they're the maps for levels 1 to 60 ), checked all the maps in between and didn't see more than 10 people, none of them were in parties/groups.. just solo'ing. If you look at the screenshot of a group of players above, that's pretty all the people you'll see in Elderine which is the main vendor map...half of those people will most likely be AFK though, so you'll only see around 20 active players in that main city map.

So in short, don't bother playing this game.. I imagine it won't be around for another year or two.
*sigh* it really was nostalgic running through the maps though, almost brought a tear to my eye remembering all the good times I had with my old guildmates.. all the fun, drama, and plain old silliness.
