The servers go down more than Pokemon Go.
The game lags really often.
It's quite easy, almost not even a challenge.
I just don't like the weapon system either.
And don't even get me started with the FORGING SYSTEM.

10/10 would get free TF2 hat again ;)

well i must say, it gets harder to collect orbs of stuff whenever you level up, which leads to repeat of gridings FOREEEVEERR! but collecting orbs is one thing, this game has alot of routes to go through, if you feel you can handle thousands of grindings then this would be a good game for you, the spark of life system can easily be wasted, but i reccomend this game because mainly it's usually fun to grind with friends (if you have any.)

P.S: when you download it on steam, it seems like no biggie until it starts installing, sort of like glyph, am i rite?

Spiral knights is an enjoyable game that to be honest, I don't find pay to win at all. An excellent co-op game with a great community. It's not one of those games with EVERYBODY wanting to trade. It has everything I'd expect from a proper game.

Pros:
- Very useful and supportive community
- Updates and events often
- Has a forum which is useful
- The guilds make life so much easier for players in need
- Not a game that tries to grab your cash
- Huge variety of weapons and gear to get and collect

Eventhough I nearly have 200 hours on this game so far, I'm not a vanguard. There's so much to explore in the dungeons and missions with your friends. If you're looking for a game that you don't want to pay for, something you want to have fun with some buddies, somewhere simple to get the hang of, this co-op game is the game for you.

I'll definitely rate this game 10/10!

Install
Earn "Mission Accomplished" achievement
Get free TF2 Hat (Spiral Sallet)
Play some more or uninstall
Have the TF2 hat to remember it by

Game was suprisingly fun for awhile.
Good multi-player and time waster when you need something to do.
I got sucked into it for awhile and if you do any DLC purchases you can get trading card drops for badge crafting.

Started good, then Sega touched it, sucked it dry, and barfed the husks up on Grey Havens. It went from an okay time waster to somewhere near RNG hell. Not worth playing, and is likely just on life support at this point.

It's alright.
Great gameplay ruined by a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ economy. You can more or less just buy in-game currency with real money, and you can also buy basically anything with the cash credits. I think it's kinda cool that you can effectively have continues in the dungeons like an arcade machine, but in general you're going to have to do some grinding if you don't want to spend any money. Try it if you're planning on buying a new game, skipping the grinding with your wallet will probably hold your attention for as long as most of the big budget titles coming out.
You can mix and match weapon and armor sets to have all sorts of different handling styles that you can bring into a dungeon and switch to and fro almost on the fly. Each weapon category feels pretty unique, which is one of the things that's fun about classless MMOs, I feel. Experimentation. The game's simple enough for you to not need to spend that much time trying to see what you like.

I'm surprised so many players would not recommend this game. I actually enjoy it, and I do recommend it. The storyline is interesting, and it is a fun arcade type game. For a free-to-play game, it's fun and well made. I love the art style.
