  • Summary: Mankind teeters on the edge of extinction, clinging to the bones of the old world while trying to recover long forgotten secrets. The Grand Canyon is the last bastion of humanity. The Shiva virus, which wiped out nearly all of humanity, has left the survivors and subsequent generations altered. The virus caused mutations, some of which were benign, some malignant, and just some incredible. It is your choice to either rise above the hardships of the post-apocalyptic world and rebuild what was lost or embrace the destruction and erase the corrupt world that remains. Where will you stand in the fight for Fallen Earth? [Steam] Expand

  1. Fallen Earth has done its homework on post-apocalyptic worlds. It really captivates the player, assuming he isn't scared away by steep learning curve. The game has a lot of potential, let's hope the masses realize it too. [Jan 2010]
  2. Fallen Earth is truly a nice MMORPG. In spite of its mix of well-known and overused gameplay formulas and storyline ideas, some of which are very close to Fallout 3, the end product is really various and immersive, and its 5000 square kilometres map is simply astonishing.

    The game itself is like nothing else on the market. The steep initial learning curve will filter out all but a certain type of player. Those who give the game a chance and can handle being completely in control of their character's destiny will find a deeply nuanced and rewarding play experience that is unique among its competitors.
  4. Fallen Earth has a great atmosphere and a very deep character skills and crafting system. The flip side of the coin is the poor visual and a not so good as It was supposed to be quests system.
  5. For something so apocalyptic, it feels like it's got a bright future ahead of it.
  6. Fallen Earth doesn’t exude the polish witnessed in recent MMOs. It’s barely adequate in terms of visuals, excruciating stretches of nothing are common, and I have never encountered so many bugs in a launch-product. And yet, it’s crawled beneath my skin.
  7. Overstretched on launch, Fallen Earth is broken in too many places. Wait a while and the ambitious world could be impressive. [Dec 2009, p.84]

    This game is so far beyond what i expected its rediculous
    The crafting enables people to create about everything in the game and if you play
    the free to play you can still win and have everything anyone else does it just takes longer.
    The story is wonderful the graphics are solid if you can crank them out it looks really good.
    The towns and NPC's really make the game come alive and i spent 5 bucks at the game store and recieved a freakin ton of welcome gift items free as well as unlocks for crafting, character slots, chip limit all unlocked and stays unlocked.. i stopped playing wow after 6 years and this is the first MMO i found that i can really dive into.
    Picture Fallout and road warrior as an mmo and thats a rough idea of the setting.
    deff 10 from me and there is not more limited trial its wide open to anyone @ 60 hours i am just leaving the starter town if that gives you any idea.
    great game play it

    10 points for being original in a genre filled to the brim with clones. The game perhaps deserves more like an 8 or a 9 (great but un-polished) but because of potential, ambition and originality it's a clear 10 in my book. Expand

    At last something innovative in the MMORPG Sector. Exceeds all newly released MMOs in quality and ambition. It is Old-School by design, has a excellent crafting system and is fun to play. If you don't like Mainstream Games like Aion and if you want a challenge this is just the Game for you. The environment is very atmospheric and well designed, the seamless world design is a great thing too. I only rated this with 8 because I'm not at the maximal level. 9 or even 10 will be appropiate if this game is able to entertain people at the maximal level. Expand

    Starter areas were interesting and varied. The game bogs down however in a couple of places--quests get boring when you get to the top of a "zone" and quests can't be attempted or completed until you're a couple levels ABOVE requirements. when you top out at lvl 50 there's really nothing to do except craft, craft, craft and mine, mine, mine. While I don't mind either in smallish doses, I quit playing because of boredom. Expand

    I've got into about an hour or two into this game, it looked very promising as a F2P game. It felt very similar to the popular game called Fallout. The graphics are great once you start the game, very detailed. The controls are slightly wonky but I think new players will get used to it over time. I really enjoyed the combat system, and how players are able to to go into 3rd person or even 1st person when equipped with guns. My main concern with this game was how easily a person who is new to this game could get muted in the "help" chat because of a silly question. With no previous knowledge of rules implemented into the chat I got muted and the customer support would state the rules AFTER getting muted. For the rest of the time I could not use the help chat as I had more questions based on the game. Which was very unfortunate.
    Lastly I would love to enjoy to spend money on this game and time, but to me, my money is better spent elsewhere.

    Don't go near this game!!! The developers told me themselves they don't care about players just money! That is why it is pay 2 play nothing more nothing less. If I can figure a class action lawsuit I would because the developers and GM's don't care about anything but themselves the developers probably came from EA it's that bad!! Metacritic doesn't care either or they would only play free to play then review the whole game! Expand
