Before you judge my decision, please be aware that I loved this game.

So Grand Chase, yeah. This was my most favourite side scrolling action mmo, that no other game of this type could beat. I prefered it over Elsword, LaTale and all of this kind of stuff. It was kinda original and it felt just so good to play it and level up all of your heroes under one name. I did not play for long and when I saw the annoucement that it comes to Steam, I was really happy and looking forward to download it.

However, everything was wrong. You need to buy character slots, no more character quests, servers are ♥♥♥♥, community dead, also it stutters alot for no moving it on steam, or by Elsword company taking over it the game died. Everything good is gone, and I am quite sure it wont be any better, cuz they have already the Elsword game, which is more popular, and they wont care about this game too much (I guess). However, I would not be mad if I could get suprised and this game became good again, but that just never happens.

Let a veteran from a time long forgotten tell you something: This entire game has been pay to win from the start, and it has been evident ever since Dio came out that this travesty that the corporate snake KoG calls a "game" was dying. So in their mind, having insanely oped characters constantly spewed out, giving out free cash sets at reaching SS rank, giving you stupid amounts of free KC for migrating accounts will keep their mentally deprived community from leaving, and you know what? They were right.

People still continue to support a game with a hell of a lot more misses than hits, and the logic behind that will forever be a mystery to me. In short, don't play this game.

I played this game when they used to only have 5 characters and now that Im back years later I cannot believe how nerfed this game has become.

+You can select any character from the start
+Many gameplay mechanics are still in place that keep to the sidescroller action
+Armor designs are still pretty awsome(only after hitting lvl 20)
+A guild system
+Theres more dungeons and bosses including event dungeons
+A larger character roster of 20 characters to chose from

-Your limited to selecting 4 out of 20 Characters and you cannot delete them to chose another, you can get free slots but only in certain events which dont happen often, otherwise you must pay for them which is 10$ per slot so if you wanted to play all 20 of them in dungeons thatll be 160$ please
-They added a new gacha machine which nobody is even going to bother with, if you like gambling save that money go to vegas
-Many of the outfits you pay real money for look ridiculous to the point were some apparal doesnt even look attached to your character.
-As others have already said Pvp is about stats not skills
-Early dungeons are many and too easy, theres no benifit to playing those dungeons with other people considering its tutorial lvl difficulty making the game boring even at lvl 35+ so any arcade like difficulty is dead and gone.
-Some skill trees require REAL MONEY to unlock.
-Theres no Xbox 360 controller support so expect your triggers, Right thumb stick, and d-pad to be totally useless and with the expanded skill tree and skill bar means youll have to give up some bindings.

Overall Grand Chase has lost alot of its faithful fanbase due to its ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ nerfing and new stats system to win pvp, if you wanted a challenging arcade side scroller its not here.

Most new characters are playable, but the biggest dissapointment is you have to be a cash player to make an awesome character. some skills are also need some cash to unlock. Not the type of game I would play.

Grand Chase was a good game, was, season 3 and 4 was its peak, but I don't think I will continue to play this... maybe it's the time for shut down... since you could only enjoy the game fully if you got the wallet, paywall makes ppl cry... they made me broke to tears, but it was long ago, now it's worse, ok let's say the paywall is not that bad... but long time ago.. you could PLAY EVERY CHARACTER WITHOUT SPENDING ANY real life money.... you must however, unlock them by doing overly long mission, but the point is, you could unlock them, somehow.... without spending any munny, now, it is different... while you can initially choose any character for free... you got 4 slots for this... after that, you'd need to spend your wallet on buying the extra slot... also did I said the character you've picked can't be undone? yep. more minus... I, however, do respect ppl who still going to play this despite the said reason, wholeheartedly, and without any sarcasm... but I think I'm too old for this kind of joke of a should-be-released-as-mobile game, just hope season 6 will come and done with less expensive way to enjoy this (Oh what am I talking about)

I used to play this game everyday a couple of years ago. I look back and I can say that I've spent more than $200 dollers and +1000 hours on this game. It is so fun and addicting. When it finally came to Steam, I quickly downloaded it again and played it for a minute or two and it reminded me of all the good times that I had with this game. This game isn't for everyone but it's worth checking out if you like 2-D fantasy games.

I have been playing this game for a long time now, and while I can say it is very different from when the game was in it's earlier stages/seasons, it still, at least for me has that certain charm that makes the game so appealing.

Basically this game is a side-scroller, like certain MMOs, but it has 3D models, the battle system is basically keyboard based (Which for me and some people is a plus) and has a plethora of characters to choose from. I think I believe it is now at 20. Most of the characters has 4 jobs, however for at least half of the characters the jobs are just expansions of the characters initial job. The characters can be classified as MP (mana bar based, fills as you attack and only 4 skill buttons), AP (like a mana bar but has fills up on it's own and has 5 skills buttons) and AMP (Which is AP style with a mana bar). The MP characters have 4 jobs that you can switch between just by equiping a different weapon type (which is reflective off what job they are in). The AP and AMP characters only use one weapon, but their higher jobs add on to their skill tree.

Skill trees are like in any other game which when you level up you get a certain amount of points to assign certain skills, the MP characters only have a full skill tree in the first job, and the other characters skill trees basically expand when they acquire more jobs.

Speaking of characters, as of the most recent season you get 4 free character slots, with these slots you can pick any characters you want to play as. Before you had to start off with the Knight (Elesis), the Archer (Lire) the Mage (Arme) and the Pheonix (Rin), but you could unlock the others. Now You get to pick whatever 4 but to unlock more characters you got to pay for more slots, OR wait for an event where you get free character slots.

Some people get off put by the fact that there is an cash shop but its not that big of a problem. There are plenty of ways to get the highest stats without using cash at any point. Cash just helps you get them easier and has some "exclusive" stuff to them such as certain pets and armor.

In this game you can have pets that help you in battle. The free pets must be found via manuals that drop in dungeons during champion mode or during events. The cash pets while are cool, sometimes are weaker than the free pets.

There is a PVP mode, which is better now that you can customize the rules of your room. But I don't really like to play PvP that much as I am more of a dungeoner.

Only dunegons no world map that you can travel.

There is no trade system, Could be seen as bad, but It makes your items rarer (to a certain degree) and more worth while and no need to worry about losing items to people who would trade everything away.

Overall this game is a fun game, especially when you have people to play with you, The characters all have distinct styles and the gameplay is simple, yet can have depth in the moves, especially with there being advanced stuff. Even though some people say that the game is too easy now, don't let that turn you away, try it out and make the judgement yourself. This game can be charming in its own way.

(Please note that this game is made by the same people who make Elsword, which is supposedly like it's spiritual successor, and while they have somethings in common, they play very differently, at least in my opinion.)

First of all. Grand Chase (GC as we call) was the only MMORPG game which I had a long and real fun while playing.
I'm a beta player, where we only had, Elesis, Lire, Arme and then Ronan / Lass.

A lot of things happened in GC, the company sold the game, then tried to buy it back, and so-so. The game faced a lot of time to get closed as well.. Now what, more than %70 of the old players left the game, just because they are doing it everytime. Paying for GC is ok, it's fine, and worth it but losing your lots of items after per company change is harmful. We had memories in this game, we even kept items those were meaning a lot, or left us the imagines of old tough boss rushes we have done with our lovely friends. But it's really tiring how the game everytime does that..

I don't know, I can't say I played it after steam release, and I would definately start from the beginning once again if I could trust.. We even had a promised Europe server coming and we all were happy with that until the day it cancelled.

I don't know. Maybe I will start over, but what's the reason of it anyway? Try it out yourself, since it's free. The gameplay is fun I promise for that, but what is important in the game is, playerbase. If the playerbase is fine this time, I would definately start over.

Oh Grand Chase, where did you go wrong? I remember playing this game when it was around the season 3 area. I left off playing it for about 4 years and I randomly find it in Steam! I put it in my library and download it hoping that I will feel my nostalgia all over again! WRONG! Instead of allowing you to play every character, they limit it down to 4 character, that is unless you are thinking of making your wallet a bit hungry. Although I only played it for 10 minutes recently, I am a bit discussed at how many microtransactions there are. Serious, they are turning into EA now, which is never good for any company. I miss the old game and I am pretty sad that this game is going to be shut down soon.

I liked ~Rebirth~ but since Season V came out I didn't like it that much because you can ONLY play 4 charas WITHOUT spending real-life money.
But I'll start again even though I need to create 5 Accs for playing all charas.
To those who enjoy RPGs would like it but those who don't want to create 5 Accs for playing all charas won't enjoy it, since you've to play all over again (if you started to play it before Season V came out).
You'll probably lose your interest pretty fast.

RIP grandchase, to those new or old players such as my self, the game has changed drastically to the point your old account has been reset and you HAVE TO pay REAL money to even experience the game. RIP GC, the game use to be so amazing, RIP GC. 4 character slots now upon f2p players, considering there are 20 characters to unlock/choose from. each character has 50 stamina, meaning you can only do 50 dungeon runs and you're depleted. must PAY REAL CASH to unlock characters and so on. RIP we old GC players will always miss you GC RIP RIP RIP~

it used to be a good game. if you're a veteran in this game you will noticed if this game has changed alot into P2W game. i only recommend this game if you are an old player and already play on this server at least 1 year. but if you're a new player on this game / server like me, who used to be an old player on GCID, i don't really recommed it. unless you're ready for spend more money to this game or just for fun. you can still have fun with this game, because you can still win this game without spent any money. but it will be harder to win it than before season V. so it's your choose.

For people who 'Tl;Dr'. If not, continue on to the main part.

Fun with friends
Fun enemies and bosses
Unique Skill Tree for each character
Easy to get the hang of
Various Characters

Getting new characters mainly requires K-Ching (irl currency in-game)
Can have monsterous lag/stuttering
Semi-toxic playerbase as of now
EXTREMELY grindy late game.
Bad PvP balancing and hit detection

I've played 150 hours (as told by Raptr's game tracker) at the very least, over multiple seasons this game has went through, so I know a fairly decent amount of stuff about this game. Now, I cannot really recommend this game 100% because of some of the problems with this game. I've been a player on Grand Chase well before it ever became an idea to come to Steam, and it was a fairly fun game: Decent community (but has dwindled now), fun and interesting enemies and areas to play, a *cough* good story, and always trying to come up with new ideas for an event dungeon (It might still be doing the bullet-hell-esque dungeon when I'm posting this). This game also has changed drastically for the worse: Characters now have to be bought unless an event gives away an unlock token/slot (each cost 10 or 15 [your currency], forgot the exact pricing), PvP is really unplayable for the most part, and lots of lag/stuttering every where it seems. Also, despite what people want to say, this game isn't unfairly p2w, but can give you some advantages here and there.

Then there is the MMO portion of it with the leveling up, changing armor, etc., that is kind of fun to do early on, however when you're trying to max out (Lvl 85) on 19 characters because there isn't really much content for a character AFTER getting to that level, it can get tedious and extremely grindy. The bright side of this is that each character is different enough to where you feel like you aren't playing as a copy and pasted character, especially with the Skill Tree system they have. Most of the characters have 4 jobs that change their skills and can change their skill tree, throwing in various different styles of play for each character.

If you're looking for a game to play with your friends and have a decently fun time, I would recommend this, but as a game to invest a lot of time, and I mean 100+ hours, not really worth it. I still find myself having fun on it from time to time, but not much anymore. Since this isn't a review of every little thing in the game, play it for yourself and determine if you like it or not, but this was my feelings on this game.

I used to play this game around right when Amy was released.

It was amazing, but after downloading it and playing it for less than ten minutes, it's just not the same game I fell in love with so many years ago. Elsword more closely matches the gameplay I've been craving. Grand Chase seems too different now.

Also, being able to start at such a high level kind of ruins the experience for me.
