    As a PvP-focused game, its time-limited cash shop and cultivation skill system makes it inhospitable to free players, yet Age of Wushu brings fresh life to stale genre features, and even gives your character an intriguing, danger-filled life when you're offline.

    While there’s no doubt that AoW has levels of intricacy that are unusual in MMOs today, those intricacies are numerous, and the localization an ongoing effort, making the whole experience difficult for many. Not everyone has the time or the patience to read through scads of text, assimilate and apply those many, many lessons. For those that do, power to you. Here’s hoping you find plenty of gold at the end of that complicated, text-heavy rainbow.

    Age of Wushu is successful for what it is and it has a community of players who enjoy the game and developers who actually care about their community. The translation is iffy, combat can be awkward, and there are some confusing elements to the game, but it does encourage interaction with other players and has plenty of content.

    There are many cosmetic quirks that clearly indicate the smaller budget Snail Games has at their disposal, but overall this is a successful blend of familiar MMO concepts with plenty of unique twists.

Few westerners know what real Chinese Kung fu looks like before entering Age of Wushu. To be honestly, I don't know exactly what to do from the moment I log in. Gradually as I walked deep into the story line, I get addicted. Great game! Full Review »

I didn't expect much from a F2P title, and was very surprised at the level of polish and depth it presents.

    The guy rating this a 0 has his views, it's definately not suitable for him, hehe.

    But if you like a asian themes MMORPG with a structure resembling Guild Wars 2 but with open world PVP instead of WvW, definately worth checking out.

    My mates played the Asian version of this tell me it's a game worth investing time in, and I also very like what I see so far.

    Reviews from CC and joystiq are pretty spot on imo!

    Glhf all ^_^

    Ok I have only spent a day on this game but first impressions are really bad translations are terrible and explanations are really confusing.Ok I have only spent a day on this game but first impressions are really bad translations are terrible and explanations are really confusing.
    Gold spamm sellers dominate chat and the "gossip" function mean they can't be blocked "joy".
    The graphics are nice and the kung fu is spot on its just a huge shame fights are almost in slow motion and are really clunky.
    I did alot of reading up on this game prior to playing and alot of the stuff they spouted just is not true you have to pay for VIP just to broadcast chat messages.
    The first group quest is shocking the NPC runs in and aggroes the whole base but dont worry it buggs out you cna sometimes stand still and complete the quest by proxy one poor guy had 3 runs and did not complete it therefore his story quest could not continue very poor game mechanics.
    overall it is brain overload with little or no explanationa s to what your supposed to be doing ore waht path your supposed to take it feels like someone has force fed you the wrong type of mushrooms and let you loose in a crazy land where nothing makes sense.
    I really will try for one more day before hitting perma delete and awaiting neverwinter, i`m gutted as I thought it would last until then.
    Bottom line buggy clunky and painfully confusing
