    I got this in the Square Enix Humble Bundle, and I am really enjoying the title. The maps are well crafted, unique, and visually appealing. 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.

    The game has great graphics, presents a balanced based on really cool multiplayer games Soul Reaver, for a beta phase, the game is well done, and the gameplay needs a lot of teamwork, if not, you lose. Expand

    Aside from poor matching making ( which is being worked on) the game runs and feels balanced and smooth. Requiring as much teamwork as individual skill to win games. Expand

    A great Legacy of Kain themed online third person arena game that has a few minor bugs that will probably be smoothed out as long as development continues on Square Enixs' part. Expand

    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 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

    Much like many these days, they call a releasable product that has bugs a "beta." It gives the developer some slack to get things tweaked for "final release." If SWTOR was called a "beta" for the first year, people probably wouldn't have been as harsh. Since there is a functioning cash shop within this "beta", you can't really call it a beta.

    Other than that, it's a pretty decent game. Nothing to write home about, but it kills time when you want some quick action. The different, but balanced method they are going with is at least refreshing from a PvP game. The vampires have a DISTINCTLY different feel than the humans. I actually do quite well with vampires, but totally suck as human (juxtaposition pun intended).

    If it didn't have "Nosgoth" as a title, you wouldn't even know that this is supposed to be set in the "Legacy of Kain"/"Soul Reaver" world. This is a mediocre game that is compounded by the insulting use of a beta title and that cost it a couple of points. I would only suggest this as a time killer. Throw them a $5 for the effort and use it to kill time during the Summer doldrums. It's not worth more than that.

    If you are a fan of the LoK/SR franchise, AVOID THIS GAME! It's pretty insulting to fans.

    Worst 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
