    Lost Ark feels like a reward after so many hashed-out and rocky launches of new games. You know what you’re getting with Lost Ark, it’s an experience that has already been through the tests and tribulations of its first two years of content. Its story won’t speak to everyone, but the endgame experience is worth a few cutscenes here and there. Lost Ark is one of the most polished titles I’ve played for some time, especially an MMO.

    A superb dungeon crawler that's held back from perfection by some crude monetisation practises and half-baked dialogue.

    Lost Ark is probably the best free-to-play MMO you can play today. It has an addictive combat system and the campaign is extremely long and you can complete that with or without friends. The only problems come with the ending that appears too intricate and difficult to understand completely.

    Despite the lacking narrative and unexcitingly standard progression systems, it’s easy to see people getting completely lost—if you’ll pardon the pun—in Lost Ark. It’s a game packed to the brim with content, collectibles, and systems, but more importantly than that, it’s made certain those systems are fun to go through…Visible effort went into nearly every avenue of the game, making it an easy recommendation even if it doesn’t bring much innovation to the space. The quality of the combat and the variety of content on offer elevates this ARPG experience to be a cut above the rest. The only thing you can stand to lose in trying out Lost Ark is time, and even in a gaming landscape defined by competition for said time, it’s absolutely worth giving a gander.

    So long as you're willing to play by its rules, Lost Ark it is an absolute blast thanks to its perfect blend of visceral ARPG combat and steady MMO progression.

    Lost Ark offers some supremely satisfying combat with some souped-up Diablo-esque sensibilities but it’s also quite the grind to see what the game really offers. Don’t count on it feeling like a regular open-ended MMO as this one feels tightly entrenched in its endgame focus. Fun it may be for a time, it soon turns into effort that makes you less keen to keep on returning.

    Dont understand the negative reviews here. This game is by far one of the best games ive played in 10 years. Yes there are some server issues,Dont understand the negative reviews here. This game is by far one of the best games ive played in 10 years. Yes there are some server issues, but the combat is really amazing and has dept. Its not just pressing 4 buttons like people say, if that is what you are doing you clearly lack skill.

    Enjoy this game, its amazing.

    The best MMO I've ever played, with amazing graphics and fast gameplay, with lots of action and fun. No other MMO has delivered what Lost ArkThe best MMO I've ever played, with amazing graphics and fast gameplay, with lots of action and fun. No other MMO has delivered what Lost Ark did. The 0/10 reviews are from frustrated people, who can't get into the game on launch day because of the queues. The queues are understandable, as it's the second most played game EVER on Steam. 10/10.

    I think its a really good game. Its really popular, therefore it has some server issues at the moment, but once everything settled down itI think its a really good game. Its really popular, therefore it has some server issues at the moment, but once everything settled down it will become one of the bests MMO-s out there.

    The game looks and feels like a cheapo p2w mobile crap. I wonder why the Autoplay button isn't there. Don't waste your time.
