    The vibrant community is what makes the difference, Forsaken World is simply not forsaken. The key points for a MMO are available right away: Cool graphics, lots of players and even more details.

    This game's focus on Western style gameplay really sets it apart from other Eastern imports.

    This is an AAA title, a big gun; it goes up against recent hits like Rift and holds its own.

    It's free, it's pretty, and it's got hot, busty vampire chicks. If any of those things interest you, Forsaken World is worth checking out.

    From pets to pvp, even jobs, titles, reputation, achievements and so many other things, Forsaken world defiantly has a plethora of content. It is not hard to get into the game and once you do, you will be surprised how easily it sucks you in. This is a fun and visually pleasing game for many types of gamers like casual, non-casual, players who do not want to spend money, and even players that do. Whatever your play style, I am sure Forsaken World will grab you in and offer hours upon hours of fun.

    While there is a decent amount of content to keep players occupied, Forsaken World tends to feel stale faster than it should.

    Even with the generous free-to-play model factored in, it's hard imagine why anyone would want to deal with the basic combat and utterly forgettable lore of this world. [Aug 2011, p.63]

I say it's absolutely worth giving it a fair shot. if it's not your cup of tea then whatever. it's not like it you had to pay anything to try it :P Expand

I tried later with more patience,I once tried 2 years ago, then quitted it soon after due to the extreme slow pacing that this game "had". I tried later with more patience, and I notice few good chance, but still quitted after sometime to the issues with money and still its extreme slow pace. Now, i've been playing this game for a longer than than usual, and even though it's still extremely slow I really did like its change. First of all, I liked the fact that at each level the game gives you some tickets in order to get some free stuff from a different shop, which sells small helpfull items and, hard to believe, money too, making the issues of training and the mount, for instance, extremely easy to pass. Also, first time i tried this game, the leveling was EXTREMELY slow (as any f2p, anyway), but now the game gives you more exp (I think triple more exp than before, but I might be wrong sometimes), and in other words it's much easier to level up now...at some points (it still takes a lot of time, just not like before, I guess). Basically, this game became a lot more accesible than before, at least by me, and as an old WoW player I must say I'm enjoying this game more than long ago, even though it's slow paced, flawed on the technical side, many bug issues (especially since Nightfall patch), and still lots of paid content to get. I suggest to try it if you're bored of others MMORPGs, or else you won't get much from it. Expand

    Forsaken World does have amazing character models and beautiful worlds. There is a lot of content and many things to do. There are 3 main drawForsaken World does have amazing character models and beautiful worlds. There is a lot of content and many things to do. There are 3 main draw backs however. First, the PvP system feel unfinished and very flat. Users will attack other users just for the sake of griefing other users. There is absolutely no risk or reward for PvP. This makes questing on a PvP server close to impossible without a party as a griefer will wait and stalk users until they are busy, then attack them. The second is the dual currency in the game. Certain items cost soul coins or gold coins. Items purchased from NPC's cost soul coins, but items purchased from other users require gold coins. There is no system to convert between the two. This makes using the auction house almost pointless because the accumulation of gold coins is very rare unless you sell things on the auction house. Users also cannot trade soul coins to help other users out for mounts or other and makes the user and their friends grind more than they need to to enjoy the game.
    Third, there was some lazy work with both programing/scripting and how they put the world together. There are countless spots in each realm where a player can get completely stuck with no hope of getting out unless they use their teleport ability. If they have used this ability they must wait 10 minutes for the skill the recharge. There are also a lot of lazy blocking volumes where the level builder must have just went "good enough, it kinda works". The pathing nodes in the game seem very blotchy and placed almost willy nilly around the world. There are also countless quests, auto-routes and NPC Ai that were scripted badly. I have a 23 inch 1080p monitor and when I can't read the text during the cut-scenes, you have a problem. The cut scenes are not the only thing wrong with the text. With special quests, the man who thought Bright red 8 point font on a bright yellow background should be shot. 90% of people couldn't read it if their lives depended on it. It was a horrible decision and takes another huge chunk away from the games polish. For a F2P game based on MTX, this game is lacking in quality and didn't travel far past an 'Idea' of merging guild wars and WoW. Lack of polish and development plagues the game on all angles.

I actually came across with some of them that already spent 3k - 4k bucks that's ridiculous. Yes you can try to farm all the gems the old fashioned way but still you will need real money to buy the fusion agents to combine them. Not to mention that all the good stuff is within that stupid orb system where you have 1 in 1000 chances of getting what you want otherwise you keep getting garbage from each orb. lottery? come on!!. PWE literally finds a way to get the money out of you. among all the MMORPGs I've played this is the only one that you actually must pay for an emote action. Expand

    While this game had good potential when it was put into Open Beta 2 years ago. It never really got anywhere close to that. Its F2P game with aWhile this game had good potential when it was put into Open Beta 2 years ago. It never really got anywhere close to that. Its F2P game with a broken balance between Pay-to-Win and abysmal lack of content.

    -Recycled graphics for monsters, bosses and NPCs
    -Getting max lvl in 6 months and then its just a grind of doing the same things over and over again
    -PvP is heavily Cash Shop orientated
    -Cash Shop is severely unbalanced and there are no restrictions in attempt to balance it
    -Game is actually quite boring lack of lore, an up to date WiKi

    In the end its a typical game from PWE, where they use it as a Cash Cow before they move onto their next venture.

    Free 2 Play yes. Free 2 enjoy not at all.

    With the recently screw ups it seems on every weekend, mostly due to the lack of staff and their actual ability to run a game without, the playerbase is now also dead. So it leaves nothing for new players looking to join and play this game.

    Avoid.
