"A f2p Diablo styled mmo, where you take on waves of enemies, complete missions, and upgrade your knight. Not exactly for everyone, but fun nonetheless."

The game is very addicting, you make good friends and fight on, it's super cute, and has the best Sound Tracks in the game and the gameplay style feels like The Legend of Zelda Link to the past, above all, this is my personal favorite MMO that ever existed for me...

It doesn't seem like much, but it is truly worth playing!
Even though energy has been used in the past for E V E R Y T H I N G, there is one thing you want.
To play this game!
:D
Totally try it out and dont be judging a book by it's cover!

A very fun game to start off with!
Then after hours and hours of cartoony fun everything begins to grind to a halt, leveling your character becomes almost impossible without endless hours of grinding and at this point it becomes "free to play, pay to win." Other than this i have no problems with a great game.

PROS:
- Very good art.
- Very fun level design.
- Good mechanics.
- Community is great, friendly, and always wanna help others!
- Great game overall.

CONS:
- Becomes "pay to win."
- Music can get repetitive and boring if you play for hours.

My final rating: 8/10.

Why?
Although its pay to win, the hours of fun i've had with this game make up for it.
Play the game, enjoy it (i promise you will), and then when you get to the point where you cant continue very well, decide wether you wanna buy lots of gear or not. its free unless you choose to pay, so go hard gamers!
Try it out, you wont regret it!

It's a fun hack'n'slash with a cute asthetic and good gameplay. Has a rather harsh energy mechanic though, so playing it alot or very hardcore could be costly.

The gameplay is amazing, with an easy combat system to learn. There is a lot of grinding involved, but I never actually got bored while playing, because the combat is just that much fun. However, the music is just okay, and the story leaves something to be desired.

8.5/10

Spiral knights is a great game for those of you that like games that you can get bored of and come back to easily, but sometimes it punishes you, because with every update that spiral knights gets it becomes harder to progress, and there is a wall that you will encounter eventually in progression to where you either need to grind your heart out, (hence getting bored of and later coming back to) or pay to skip it. I myself am STILL in this wall region, but, it is/was a great game. my biased review would be 8/10 but honestly in reality with how hostile in my opinion it is to new players a 6.5-7.5/10 would be correct, also i have 500 hours on this game, just i wasn't into steam when i first started playing the game and later transfered into it. also you get a hat if you do the tutorial, totes worth playing it alittle for that free hat

Spiral Knights is a great game and the community is pretty friendly which really adds to the experience (joining guilds, partying, etc etc). Playstyle mechanics are fairly simple and repetitive but the environment and obstacles require focus so it doesn't get boring. I think what I appreciated most was the art style and the music. The game targets a younger generation but I believe you can play and enjoy this at whatever age. Fantastic game. 8/10.

I would not recommend this game. I call it "the money guzzler". The main campaign never ends. You either need to play 24/7 all day in order to ever hope to aquire enough crowns to buy resoruses. Do not say I did not warn you! DO NOT BUY! This game is meant to suck every last dollar and leave you with your mouth gaping open when you learn the campaign never ends.

I really like this game, but the only bad thing you have energy. (Sort of like FarmVille)
