    Carbine never was set to reinvent the wheel. But they put a nice set of custom rims on their vehicle. And then they strapped the whole thing on a space shuttle and send it into space.

    Wildstar is probably the best and most complete MMO that has come out in years.
  3. Wildstar isn’t an innovative MMO and doesn't offer any new thing for players. But, Wildstar can do its job properly. Massive amounts of content, satisfying difficulty level and dynamic combat system… These are just a few examples. If you want more, Nexus is calling you.

    Coming out of nowhere for someone not addicted to MMORPG, Wildstar is the antithesis of The Elder Scrolls online. No big IP to sell it, but strong gameplay, a dynamic combat system, colorful graphics and massive content right at the launch. PvE, PvP, battlefields, housing: enough to please everybody and every skill level. Taken individually, those elements are nothing revolutionary, but we could argue that the game looks a bit classic. Overall the game offers a consistent and coherent package which is fun to play, for now and for a long time.

    An excellent online game that works from the very beginning and that is entertaining even though it brings no revolution. If you are serious about a mix of sci-fi, fantasy and a hint of Monty Python's humour here and there, you may feel free to enter into Wildstar.

    With a steady stream of content planned, a solid framework for housing, and a commitment to hardcore seriousness and silly humor, WildStar is more than the sum of its parts, and every MMO player should at least give a fair shake.

    Wildstar, which has very little sense of identity, which has very little pull, which feels like a collection of features, which has a subscription fee, was a relic as soon as it was released. And I’m afraid one of the most trenchant facts about it is one of the worst things you could say about any MMO: it’s going to be easy to stop playing.

If you're like me, and you've given everything on the market a try then you know it's hard to find something to really invest in. The movement of the game alone makes it worth checking out and the combat is second to none.

    And that housing system... I was totally blown away!

    If you think adding LFR was the best idea Blizzard ever had, this game isn't for you.

    The game is not without criticism but ignore the negative reviews giving this game a 0. If you click on their usernames you will discover users such as retrobax and Flatline1984 that rated Wildstar a 0, rated ESO a 9-10. I guess when you're a drowning rat on a sinking ship you want to take as many people with you as you can.

I love the combat system, because it is highly dynamic and the telegraphing is a great feature. I like how deeply you can customize your character, from appearance down to your skills and abiltiies, making each character unique. You choose 8 skills from a large pool, and then tweak their emphasis with ability points. You can also customize further with AMPs, their version of talents, of which there are 90 total to choose from.

    The housing system is also amazing. Each player gets a house around level 15, and you can customize it in infinite ways, with very powerful tools to do so. There are hundreds if not thousands of items you can place in your house, and you can rotate them along 3 axes, scale them up or down, and place them exactly where you'd like.

    Finally, if you haven't seen it already, check out the developer video on raids, it's awesome :D

    Anyone that gives this game a poor review based on server availability during launch isn't grading the game itself. Anyone saying this game isAnyone that gives this game a poor review based on server availability during launch isn't grading the game itself. Anyone saying this game is a WoW Clone hasn't actually played it. Unless they are referring to the fact that there is PvP, PvE, and Questing. That is where the similarities stop. The leveling experience is fresh and fun, adding in much more than the normal dull grind. The housing system absolutely blows most other games attempts out of the water.
    Every subtle detail that Carbine added in to Wildstar makes it a game that every MMO gamer should have in their collection. This game is the next step in the MMO genre.
    The only thing keeping this game from a 10 is the lack of optimization and the inconsistencies in frame rate.

    Great game so far. definitely worth a purchase. Art is really about Love or Hate, and questing is like any other mmo. But dungeon andGreat game so far. definitely worth a purchase. Art is really about Love or Hate, and questing is like any other mmo. But dungeon and adventure design, music, difficulty, progression, action combat system, crafting and housing are AMAZING. The lore in my opinion is really good, the cinematic parts and the cubes you will find in the world (voice acted) are really good. Like I said, the questing could be a little more varied and the not voice acted quests are the only drawbacks for me. WOULD RECOMMEND Expand

    I will start my review by recommending that you try out this game before buying. If you are lucky someone can give you a 7 day guest pass.
    I came into this game probably with too much expectation. Yes this game has some strengths that being an active combat system which is innovative. A skill talent system which allows you to really customise your character. The ability to double jump and sprint is a nice touch and a sense of humour.
    The graphics felt dated and the cartoony style isn't my cup of tea. I did get past my feelings on the graphics and the style grew on me.
    But at the end of the day as much as I tried I couldn't get excited about the game. It felt like I had done this or seen this before. This from someone who has played close to 350 days played or more on the genre in the last 10 years in numerous games.
    In today's market a subscription based pricing model is very risky and I personally don't think you will see $180 per year value plus the original $60 for the base game.

    This is worst optimized game ever, also with very low player base for MMO. It's not that I can't recommend to try, but nothing good left inThis is worst optimized game ever, also with very low player base for MMO. It's not that I can't recommend to try, but nothing good left in this game, unlike to fix problems they just totaly cut gameplay, go F2P to somehow save game and now they try to use Steam, but all problems from 2014y are still alive.
    Most of AMD card owners do not have huge problems with the game, but even GTX1080 players on onf forums say that they can't even get stable 60FPS... So forget to play the game on 600, 700 or 800 GPU versions. Also instead of fixing code problems they are forcing players to use side guides and changing gamer optimized systems to somehow normally run Wildstar and make all other games unplayable on this systems, also some of that fixes may harm you machine if you don't know what and how to do... So take care. Very strange that Wildstar graphics level game can't run better, even same like Black Desert or Star Citizen... (some funboys say that Wildstar have Better graphics than Black Desert or Star Citizen... Happen... O.o)
    Graphics are way old for resource consumption, even Legion expansion provides same level graphics with very low resource usage, will say nothing how far Wildstar is from WoW.
    But ideas of the game on lunch was cool and really fun, but all even live features (don't wait new ones at all) are cutted off and optimized for very low online Steam helps a little to increase player base, but anyway there are very low number of players who play it.
    Can't say do not try it, maybe you will like it, cos game still have nice ART and still left some interesting features, but game which developers don't want to fix 2-3 years old problems and make game somehow playable for its level can't be scored by me. So sorry, but 0/10, Shame to NCsoft after so many great projects creating Wildstar...
