    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

FW boasts a random team generating system for entering instances that allows you to quickly and easily acquire higher level equipment and complete higher level quests. There are numerous crafting jobs to engage in and everyone gets a pet, so if that's your thing I think you should enjoy this game as well. The music, graphics, and gameplay are all generally excellent and the game boasts open PvP servers. The biggest problem with this game is, as people have pointed out, a dearth of money/resources and the strange cash system the game employs. Lower level enemies are also ridiculously high on HP, which results in a series of drawn out and non-threatening (but resource draining) fights. I think FW could be at least a 9 if it would work on reducing the HP of its trash mobs a bit so that quests could be run a little faster ... especially on the PvP servers, where the open PvP makes long quests at one location a foolish waste of time unless you are in a group. I think I should also mention that this game boasts a ton of features that act a double edged sword ... on the one hand, the features are all unique and interesting to explore. On the other hand, if you fail to explore them all you may end up severely gimping yourself and spending long hours wandering about clueless and underpowered. One feature I think FW could definitely do without is Experience Aid. PWI ought to just drop this money sink and make experience slightly easier to come by while reducing the strength of their trash mobs to accommodate faster quest completion and experience gain. All in all, the game deserves an 8. It is solid and generally well designed, but it needs to overhaul its persistent world mobs, experience pace and loot tables to be a top tier game. 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

Having a newer gaming computer, I amThe game is definitely not original or very good looking, yet some of the gameplay elements are fun. Having a newer gaming computer, I am astounded at how poorly it ran and how frequent the graphical errors and glitches filled my screen. Very little effort was ever made to polish the game (translations of text fields, making sure text and other elements fit in windows, etc...) There is also way too much emphasis on the in-game cash they have. I would have probably given this game a 0 if it wasn't for the fun I had playing starting out. The worst part came when my account was banned. I had not logged in for a month or more. I tried to figure out why I was banned, and they took forever to respond to a customer support email. Their website is TERRIBLE. If you need assistance for being banned, good luck. They tell you to report it in their support system, yet you need to log in to use it and, no surprise being banned prevents you from logging in. I was eventually allowed back on. I changed my password and a week later was banned again without logging back on after the incident. I have no idea what this company is playing at, yet the forums are filled with people complaining about being banned the same as I after purchasing in-game cash. I would suggest avoiding this game, especially if you want to purchase items. The whole thing seemed incredibly shady and underhanded to me. Expand

    Simply put this game is terrible, ive downloaded it twice but all im getting is errors and corrupted files, so I get told to verify my filesSimply put this game is terrible, ive downloaded it twice but all im getting is errors and corrupted files, so I get told to verify my files hoping it would clear out the corrupt ones but noooo verify doesent work, so then I found out you can bypass verify and it took me a good 20mins to pick a half decent username I go to log in and boom client is out of date and the only way to fix this is to verify.......as what I said above it doesn't work....ive never struggled so much to play a game in my life you think it would be as easy as downloading the game and playing it but with this its problem after problem... if you want a free game get guild wars if you want a premium game get world of warcraft because all this game is is a cheap copy of world of warcraft and guild wars and it fails big time..
