I alwaysI have played and loved Wurm Online for over three years, but always wished I could have more freedom to do what I want in the game. I always felt my creativity was limited by the need to gather resources and put more time into making it real than I could give.
Wurm Unlimited has changed that for me, and yet still offers so much more. Not only can I use a GM-level character to build anything I desire, but I can run a server and share it with my friends. The community has already created some wonderful tools that allow you to make custom maps, and the modding community is just getting started.
The game is rather easy to launch and manage. Each "server" is in it's own folder, so I can easily make copies, zip up the good ones and store them for later, or switch between if I goof up too badly. There's a Linux-based dedicated server for cheap, cost-effective hosting.
That doesn't even touch the Adventure mode, which allows a player who has never played Wurm get a real feel for some of the aspects that even MMO players never really experience. You get to work on ascending to godhood, to gain powerful sorcery items, or do what ever! Totally up to you. It's what I'd like to call "rails-optional".… Expand

It's basically the closest medieval-fantasy version of Eve-Online
But it's still a pretty solid game, very comlex, and with a steep and slow learning curve, but it's worth it once you're past that.… Expand

When Wurm Unlimited came out I was very excited, the ability to play on custom servers with custom settings and you can host your own server! This was awesome! I have over 2k hours in the game and to this day it still draws me in. Of course there are a few things that need improved, but overall its a very good game. The skill system is good, I just wish it would restrict what you can do based off your skill level. The combat system is ok, a bit dated but still enjoyable. The crafting system is very good and of course the ability to terraform is outstanding! They still need to work on a good questing system and NPCs to really round out the game but to this day its very enjoyable!… Expand
Nov 7, 2015This game was very poorly optimized and would not even play on most computers at release because the developers forgot to include some C++This game was very poorly optimized and would not even play on most computers at release because the developers forgot to include some C++ patch. All of this game's positive reviews here and on Steam will come from Wurm Online fanboys who have a vested interest in protecting Wurm's reputation due to the hundreds and thousands of dollars they have spent on the MMO counterpart to Wurm Unlimited. Wurm Online can best be described as a pyramid scheme with Rolf on top and then a hierarchy of established players who drain traders in order to pay for their premium. Traders get silver from new players, so when new players are not joining Wurm Online that means the established players might have to dip into their own pockets to pay for premium. That is why every year CodeClub tries some sort of gimmick to get more players in the game. Last year it was Challenge, before that it was Xanadu, this year it is Wurm Unlimited.
However this plan has backfired horribly as many established Wurm players quit the game to play Wurm Unlimited, which they will not have to pay a subscription for. I expect Wurm Unlimited to receive less and less support, perhaps Rolf will intentionally pull the plug on it when Wurm Online's population gets low enough. He even implied that the official Wurm Online servers may shut down one day. What I'm getting at is the future of Wurm Unlimited and its MMO counterpart looks bleak at best. Wurm Unlimited was made to boost Wurm Online's population, and has only decreased it by a large number, the developers will consider it a failure and scrap it while Wurm Online continues to decline since so many players already sold their accounts and disbanded their deeds they will not want to return.
Another thing I should mention is that you will get banned from Wurm forums on the official site and on Steam if you make any negative remark about the game. I got banned just for pointing out that you can make more money selling dirt than bricks in Wurm Online, so I reported them to the Steam admins and got unbanned. Lately they banned me again just for pointing out how they were deleting any threads mentioning how the game won't play or how bad the UI is, etc. I haven't contested the ban as I have no use posting there anymore but definitely could if I wanted.
You know the saying, "Cut out a man's tongue, and you just show the people you fear what that man has to say." Well that's how I feel about Rolf and Warlander, a couple of power hungry control freak developers desperate to rip off as many people as they can while silencing anyone who gets in their way. I would have played this but like I said it was poorly optimized so it would not even start until they patched it days later so I had to ask for a refund.… Expand
