    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 goal is simple: Kill the other team. I got a beta key just yesterday, and after reading the numerous reviews critizing the game for its glitches and bugs, I wasn't expecting much. However, the game surprised me. I got into the action immediately after the brief but thorough tutorial, and was instantly entertained. The game is easy to get in to, and the action is very fun and refreshing. The game reminds me of a class-based version of Left 4 Dead 2's competitive multiplayer, but is much more than that may hint at.
    Pros; - Easy learning curve (The tutorial won't take you more than 10 minutes, and you'll know exactly what to do after it)
    - Great gameplay (Playing as either the humans or vampires will present you with unqiue classes set to different playstyles. The controls are simple and accurate. The action is intense and fun, and is what really makes this game shine)
    - Addictive (Although simple, the game can eat away at your time, in a good way. Don't expect thousands of hours of playtime, but this may become your next goto multiplayer game)
    - Visuals (The graphics are great, even more so considering it's in beta right now. The levels are dark (in mood, not necessary lighting) and suit the scenario of vampires vs humans in a great way)
    - Well polished (In my time with the game, I didn't encounter a single bug. The animations and actions were always spot on)
    Cons; - A little too simple for some (This isn't an in-depth game by any means. This means that it's mostly geared toward casual gamers, or gamers who just want a fun and easy game)
    Overall, this game has high potential. Even in beta, the game outshines many recent games I've played, and has eaten up my spare time. Nosgoth is very high quality as of right now, and there isn't much to complain about. The only real problem is that the game might not be satisfying for a serious gamer looking for a new and deep multiplayer action game.

    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
