TL;DR is last paragraph.

As someone who played this game for years(About 3 I believe) I feel I am more then quilified to write this review.

For years I've played Forsaken Worlds. I managed to get to max level, all but two purple gear,and level 1 wings. All of this with minimal cashshoping(Only $80, which in Forsaken Worlds, IS minimal).

I've also managed to play this game with a guild who during most of the game, was very postive about the guild and could always see upsides. Until about 6 months ago, we all had faith in Forsaken World lasting a lot more years, espically since an connent update has just came out that was supposed to be HUGE. Unfournatly, it wasn't. We got about 1/3 of the things China has gotten, and the things we did get was either very glitchy or very VERY grindy. To the point where, the only thing interesting that really came from the update was the incraed level cap(Which was still next to impossible to get without countless hours of grinding).

As if a stripped down overhyped update wasn't enough, there was a huge bug that where if you exploited it enough, you get max level, with plenty of items. The Product Manager, at this point, took weeks to acknowledge that the expliot WAS a thing and that it needed to be addressed. He stated that they were banning each and everyone of the people who explioted it, rather they were cashshopper or not. Unfournatly, that also was untrue. Months later, we still had people who clearly explioted the bug, running around in the few active PVP instances runing it for everyone.

To stop the expliot from happening, the GM's decided that the only way to fix it was to change server times for every server. While this seemed fine to some people who could now do events that were late at night, it was devasting to everyone who was optimzed for their timezone. Many people had to miss certain important events in game due to the new server times. To add insult to injury, tthe patch that they added this in, was unannounced and unaddressed for days after. About a wek later, the GM's finally discovered our hate for this change, and made a poll addressing if it should be changed back, with different changes added. This was addressed with a huge 'CHANGE IT BACK'. Months later, we're still getting "We are unable to complete the results of this poll at this time".

To top all of this sad turn of events up, after the poll, we had one of our GM's(Who was the most/only helpful one) transfered to their new game. This was followed by all of the rest of our GM's going silent. We would go weeks without hearing a response from any GM's and when we did, it was either only to address issues for the cashshop, or was not useful at all. This is still going on now, as well.

So, to sum all of this up, we had a stripped down overhyped contnet update, with an extreme amount of bugs We also had a huge expliot that was addressed by harming many people without getting reverted. We also have had very little communication from our GM's. If I were you, I would suggest not playing this game unless you don't mind glitchyness and minimal communication.

I am way more than qualified to tell you....this game is pay to win.

My main was Rewt, some of you might know me. Cash rules in this game, I quit after many many exploits were exploited by less than honorable users. Despite this, exploiters were given hand slaps. It became an inside joke in the game that if you discovered an exploit, abuse the hell out of it before anyone found out.

As if you needed another reason, the balance in this game is god awful. Basically, you have 3 trees per class. Only one of these is viable in pvp. That's if you chose a class that's viable in pvp at all. Set teams rule arena, (I was in one) which is like queue, accept, cast 5 spells, battle over in 1 min.

What ruined this game? The cash shop. You can spend up to what your cc can stand. Pure straight up CC to power. Several people have spent over $100K USD. No, that's not a typo.

I would be remiss to not point out that the game is beautiful. It does have it's strengths. If you don't pvp, the dungeons can be fun. There's not raids as such, and don't take forever. It's quick fun runs, they did that right. There are dailies, but not onerous.

If you don't have 10K lying around, getting into this game at this late date, you'll never be good at pvp. If you just like beautiful games and exploring, give it a try.

Oh, and the global chat is NSFW and not safe for children, thought I should mention that.

Playing both FW and PW when they were released, I thought they were pretting good. Unfortunatly playing them once again I have almost completely changed my opinion of them. Though this is more of a neutral review to at least let others take a chance at it.

Opinions:
-Community is not as big anymore meaning there are less people to play with. Though if you just started you may not notice this.
-Nicely designed maps but if you are like me nitpicking at everything you can see some things don't line up.
-Plenty of classes and species to choose from.
-One-Click. If you just click on your Quest Log you can complete everything without lifting a finger.
-Pay to Survive. Though you don't neccessarly have to pay to play, you have to pay to survive. Better equipement, mounts, weapons etc.
-Pay to start a guild...? No thanks! I can find better ways to spend my money.
-Quests are not exciting especially Solo. I use to think some quests were okay, now they are just boring.
-Graphics could be better but are not bad when it comes to some things.
-Get a pet and fly for free. Though they are rather "lame" or not as good.

I won't be playing this game too much.

The game play is beautiful and quite nice. Only 1 major problem with it. PWE runs this game. They don't care about the players if said player is hacked and loses everything PWE will tell you "You are out of luck we can't do anything." Customer Service is terrible. The only way to catch up to older players is probably spending about $100 a day. That is how bad the cash shop is. PWE also does not punish players for exploits. In fact they say "Stop doing it or we will issue bans." But they never hand out bans so you can essentially get away with everything in the game. With FW being down to 1 staff member that is product manager you can tell that this game won't recieve any love. You want something fixed. PWE won't fix it. They must ask Wanmei first before doing anything and must wait for fix. If there is one.

TL;DR This game is not worth your time. You are better off playing World of Warcraft than this game.

it is not a bad game. there are some issues with it such as the pay to win one example is it takes over a year of farming for gems and the assorted points to make any toon worth a penny. as it stands now in the game the only specs worth a thing are pvp specs since they are the only ones that have stuns or slow.

best examples are that of the mage 2 specs that can be pvp the 3rd is strait pve

lighting has great knockback ok damage. will work ok for pvp

frost has stuns and slows. great for pvp

both lightining and frost work fine in pve

now for the fire

fire has burn damage for high dps but dies at just about any hit at all and the burn damage is nullified by frost

btw so ya know 95% of all mages in the game now are frost

I've wasted almost 200 hours on this game, Met some pretty cool people/guilds, It can be a little frustrating at times but for a FREE game It's actually not half bad. I reccomend the Lionheart server if you decide to try it out. It's not just a generic WoW clone despite it's first appearences.

Did i mention It's FREE? What more do you want?

In my opinion I really do enjoy this game. It is fun and pretty addicting. I started playing it one day and then got leveled up like nothing. The graphics for this game is pretty cool and the characters are pretty cool. I like the stories and everything about the game. I just recommend the game overall. Especially if you enjoy RPG games. (:

Basically Warcraft, on a budget, and lots and lots of micro transactions which funny enough stopped me playing, whatever happened to being rewarded for skill. Instead you get people poncing about in FASHION items. If you have that much money to burn, give it to the hungry not this silly overly populated WOW ripoff. Thats a NO from me. :P and yes I played it enough to judge. Has its charms at the start but just wait until you realise you can't advance without spending real coin. Then you will take my view of the fact there are much better things to spend your money on. Like CHOOOOOCOLATE!!!!

I play this game and have max lv b4 the previous cap lv. I stopped cause it got boring and nothing really new for quite some time. Repeat same thing everyday. Only fun thing was pvp and social with other players. After like a year of quitting i came back to see how it was doing and it literally was a dead town. So many quit and believe me i logged in at dif time/days but it was still dead. It was a very good game b4 i quit but now i doubt this game will rise again.

Used to be an awesome game back then, became a blatant p2w laid-back-as-hell overloaded-with-trolls game.

Can't recommend anymore

First started playing in early summer 2011, at this time the game was great and non-casual, no 3x exp and no free weekly items, i was impressed with the events based on a 24/7 schedule.

But then with updates, the game started to be easier and bad, free items each week, 3x exp , quickest way possible to level is being afk with those fruits items, thx to the game being easier it brought some of the dumbest people on the internet playing this, i don't know how many high level people i encountered that just speed leveling and had no idea to play their class properly and had no idea how to gear themselves, almost no one wanna do instances despite world chatting for a while, people are greedy as hell thx to the gold coins system. There is a bot system for farming exp and points wich is stupid as hell way to ruin an online game.

Priests have a hard life everything is expensive as hell for them like the scrolls skills (wich arent distribute automaticaly, anyone can roll on it) some agree to roll class but there is always one ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ that will steal it and leave the party. Maybe the only good side now is the pvp wars that has awards but it is up to the guild leader to distribute and some will lie to keep the awards for themselves.

i have officialy quit early 2012 after 9/10 of my friends dumped that game down. i had a great time on that game before it all changed, wich is a shame i never found another MMORPG that good, ty perfect world for being ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and ruining it. its now a very bad game.

I played the game probably way longer than I should have, Steam records over 1000 hours which doesn't even include the time when I wasn't playing on Steam.

It started out pretty good for me. Early levels aren't too bad, and a lot of the dungeon mechanics are actually very interesting and fun.

By the time I stopped playing, game development had been going in an increasingly bad direction. Things were becoming increasingly and ridiculously grindy. I suppose in some recognition that it was too grindy, they implemented a bot system that would control your character in a limited fashion that helps with some of the more mundane grinding.

At some point, even with sinking ridiculous hours into the game, it's nearly impossible to be competitive without cash shop purchases. Dungeons start to become gear-gated. Many of what were once challenging dungeon mechanics become trivial once you hit a gear threshold. And you end up running these dungeons a ton of times because of how grindy the game is, and it really becomes a chore.

Both in PvP and PvE, class balance doesn't seem to be handled very well, which becomes increasingly clear the farther you progress. This may have been fixed in the meantime, but was one of the main reasons (along with client instability and the absurd amount of grinding) that I stopped playing. I was playing one of the two classes that were considered basically unviable in PvP (Protector and Marksman).

On the plus side, I've heard good things about large scale PvP and inter-server PvP have been added as well, but it's not enough to make me come back to what I feel is a broken game.
