    It's free, fast-paced and the asynchronous teams keep the gameplay interesting, but two gameplay modes aren't enough to keep you playing for a long time.

The same goes for each of the four classes of the humans and vampires. The races play well and are very distinctively different with big differences in play style. The gameplay is very fun and has a lot of competitive potential, as well as cooperative awesomeness. A team playing together would be devastating in this game, as the team that sticks together the most and helps each-other out seems to win.
    I've been pretty skeptical of free to play games, but this one is different. All the weapons, classes, and perks have their own unique feel and trade offs and are attainable through gameplay. So, much like Team Fortress 2, it's free to play, but not pay to win.
    A lot of people are giving this game a bad score because of their nostalgia for the old "Legacy of Kain" games, rather than because the game itself is undesirable, which is ridiculous. This game is a different game, dammit! Deal with it.
    Others complain about the beta aspect. Well, the game is feature rich and bug free. Nothing to avoid here.
    Let me just say that the way the blood spatters onto the ground and walls around you when the vampires eat a dude is just stunningly accurate (it's pretty gross). I am very impressed now that a game has finally achieved this. You'll see what I mean. Go ahead and join the beta-you won't regret it.

    For a closed beta game it is very polish and I haven't seen any bugs after my first 100 hours of play. It is addicting and very enjoyableFor a closed beta game it is very polish and I haven't seen any bugs after my first 100 hours of play. It is addicting and very enjoyable especially when you play with friends. The F2P model is nice because only cosmetics are to be bought with cash only, everything else can be unlocked by in game gold which isn't hard to obtain.

    I plan to play another 100+ hours of this game. It is definitely worth checking out especially since its free.

The maps are like medium-sized arenas and so far have been designed very well. The classes are pretty balanced overall, but there are some cases of being overpowered going on.

    The human side is almost like a small chaos that emphasizes individual skill and positioning on the map. Even though player skill is important, the humans have to be together all the time, as alone they can't survive. Some of the human classes are hugely dependent on their teammates, while others can wreak havoc even on their own.

    The vampire side is more fun, imo, and they need great teamwork to kill the enemy team. Rushing in alone ends up in you getting killed, but a combined attack can end up in the wipe of the enemy team. The vampire team has roles that depend on your class and abilities. Pretty much all of the classes can't go in alone and get kills.

    There are still some things that the game suffers from. For example the hitboxes are horrible at times and some maps have annoying invisible walls that happen to ruin your charge that was meant to split the enemy team. Nosgoth also needs to polish their matchmaking system as it ruined a couple of games in which I was with my three other friends. The group system also has tons of bugs. But overall in think most of the faults can be fixed with a few patches, and in the end of course, it's a beta.

    You should try it out and see what you think. It has some nice potential to be a big team-game.

    Outside of a few server issues (which I can guarantee are because of the 75% off Steam Summer Sale) the game plays great. It has a largeOutside of a few server issues (which I can guarantee are because of the 75% off Steam Summer Sale) the game plays great. It has a large variety of weapons and abilities you can earn with in game currency, a handful of visually great maps, a handful of fun and different classes on both Humans and Vampires, and is an overall great game.

    The only Con I have right now, outside of the server issues, is the limit of only 2 Game Types (which trust me I haven't gotten bored of yet) but I do believe there will be more added in the future as this game isn't even released yet.

    I give this game a strong 8-8.5 and would highly recommend it if it goes back on sale for 5$. Also, I believe it is going free to play after Beta and would suggest everyone to give it a try.

    This game has its fun parts but sadly it feels like there's not a single game designer even trying to make the game better. I'm not even sureThis game has its fun parts but sadly it feels like there's not a single game designer even trying to make the game better. I'm not even sure there are any game designer involved on this game. Every part which sucks, sucks a whole lot and it doesn't take long to get the game's commercial motto: "Meh, we'll make money anyway." Expand

    Worst game ever. I've seen some bad games with bad glitches and stuff, but this makes those games look good. Crappy matchmaking, worst gameWorst game ever. I've seen some bad games with bad glitches and stuff, but this makes those games look good. Crappy matchmaking, worst game play you can't even see what your doing because your character is in the way, and they only have 2 game modes that are insanely short. Most of all they don't fix these problems. I have seen the same patch notes for too long they say they are adding new and improved matchmaking but i haven't seen anything improve. Finally, every patch seems to add more problems then improvements. 0/10 worst game ever don't install, i already uninstalled it. Expand
