    Wild West Online will not quench your thirst; on the contrary, it will have the effect of a spoonful of salt in the middle of a scorching desert.

    An empty world, without story, repetitive and full of microtransactions. Unless you really, really love the setting and you are looking for this exact concept to play with friends, there is no reason to play this game.

    Despite mediocre graphics, terrible animations and countless other defects at first I thought that Wild West Online has some potential. It does not. It quickly revealed itself as awfully boring and hollow. [07/2018, p.62]

    The contentless husk of an MMO with uninteresting mechanics and a progression system with no rewards.

    Wild West Online is a complete mess. Don't buy it.

    Overall Wild West Online in its current state does not offer anything worth spending at its full asking price for. The player number seems to continue to drop and while the dev team continues to patch the game, it could be too little too late. A game that should be in Beta, is instead in full release.

    This game is a buggy micro transaction mess. You start out with terrible looking characters with an equally terrible outfit, in order to getThis game is a buggy micro transaction mess. You start out with terrible looking characters with an equally terrible outfit, in order to get other items of clothing like a measly hat you need to grind for hours. The world is boring and stale it has nothing to do apart from wonder round, the graphics could have been so much better but yet they only made it because they wanted money from rdr2. Its a rushed out game with no story or literally anything fun to do. The only things to do are go to farms and get quests that take ages because the things you need dont respawn at all. You can tell that this game was only made to capture the audience of rdr2 as it was rushed so it could beat the original rdr2 release date. Its meant to be fully released now but still its terribly buggy and the horses move like robots and there are no npcs its a very bad game. Do not buy, it was a waste of £30. Expand

    Robbery's train/bank/player/Shops, Player owned small and big buildings/farms/ fast pace and general fun game play. You get some of it all buggy lack lusting and a lot of micro transactions they have not delivered all content early Byers was promised and the game servers are down so if this is not a "scam" its a hell of a salesman in the other end. and by the way cheaters are plenty last time i got to play on the server and the development team has most likely abandon the game.

Devs have been totally dishonest with the community. There are two very strong verified connections to the most notorious scammer in gaming history - Sergey Tivov. Awful game, awful devs, awful community managers. Do yourself and the gaming community a favor and stay away from this game. Expand

    Early-Alpha game, is fun only if you like mindless pvp, the basic mechanic are not well designed, the leveling system is the worst i've everEarly-Alpha game, is fun only if you like mindless pvp, the basic mechanic are not well designed, the leveling system is the worst i've ever seen in an MMO, the Support System is ridicolously bad, the DEVs ignore the people that ask for help blatantly, and if they do answer is to just leave a statement and disappear for another day or more, they never discuss about serious gamebreaking problems, they release patches rushed without thinking of what could go wrong in the game so they broke a game mechanic for many people, they ignore posts on the official forums as well as posts on the steam forum, where if they answer, is either an aggressive answer or a default nonsense one, they sometimes even troll you, thinking its funny to answer trolling the customer, awful support, very minor changes in patches, nothing major, just little tweaks, the servers of EU crash alot, the player base number is decreasing, they have no respect for customers and let alone their player base.

    This game will probably soon become a Free to Play which means there will be alot of cheaters in game since it has the same game engine Nighshade as WarZ, is it a cashcow? probably yes, because if not, the support service would have been faster and better, its been 2 weeks with that gamebreaking problem and we cant have a discussion of 20min with the dev to make him understand what went wrong, he is probably russian so he doesn't understand english very much.

    Do not buy this game until it becomes what it will probably never be a great complete polished released game.

    Do not buy this game because the DEV will ignore you if something really bad happens.

    Do not buy this game because the faction balance is ridicolously BAD!!! there is also no sheriff and outlaw mechanic and it will never become a real foundamental thing in this game, its just awful, 5 vs 40 in pvp, no balance, players that abuse the lag and you cant shoot them, you can't play ALT chars, only your main one because there is no way to level up since they **** up the leveling system which was already ridicolously bad!

The game is released in a full release, but technically looking, and works like an alpha, with a lot of bugs, imbalance, lack of content and much more. During development, the game turned into a piece of selected **** What was originally intended to be thrown away. The game uses the engine nightshade bought from the infamous Sergei Titov. The only thing that works properly in this game-cash shop! Developers incompetent idiots who managed to ban the forum games and steam forum, even those who defended their "crafts". Expand
