    Space Cartoon Themed

    Fans of games like Ratchet and Clank will appreciate the art style of this game along with the space theme that is present. Playing the game when it started its free to play model there is very little that makes this game stand out. The developers for this game took a large inspiration from WoW and you can feel it from the UI and the gameplay. Now with this setup, you can see that WoW is beginning to show its age in a game that is not World of Warcraft. By this I mean that the gameplay feels outdated. Combat is the tab targeting mechanic that we have all seen in other MMOs and although they try to add features such as dodge mechanics and the telegraphed attack circles, you get the feeling it is GW2 mechanics added to a WoW system. Visually there is nothing special either, just the theme of space and alien planets give it something unique to look.
    Now when compared to its current competition in games such as Blade and Soul, Guild Wars 2, Black Desert, even World of Warcraft, WildStar does not hold up much besides its theme of space. It has no distinct feature of claim that makes it entertaining as a MMO when there is simply other games that do better at being an MMO. It is simply a mediocre or average WoW clone game.

    Another overhyped MMO

    This game had a lot of promise. The graphics, the gameplay, the story, even the community that was following the hype. But alas it was only able to deliver on one of those.

    Graphics are good, Typical AAA quality looks. But the gameplay was a letdown right from the get go. From the tutorial you're treated to the same mechanics that have been on the earliest MMOs. I tried my hardest to to try and like it and have this thinking that I might grow into it or finding something interesting or different but it just failed to deliver.

    Felt alone the whole time as well, like other players felt like they were just bots or npcs. Really can't recommend this game to anyone.

    Silly child wow parody

    If you are young or not serious, wow for you is too hard to understand, maybe you will like this. Just another mmorpg game that copy old popular games, nothing new, it failed so hard so started f2p mechanics...

    What is not to love

    Absolutely amazing game. So much fun. the character designs and options in creation really allow you to express yourself how you want and the story behind everything just works. the mechanics of the game are fairly straight forward and over all it is just a lot of fun !

    Great game, still dying

    Wildstar made a brave choice in unique cartoon like art style and comedic content. It could have been much more if it went out as f2p on release, but alas the model was only used to try and save the sinking ship.

    ok...review

    This is my honest review:

    I tried to love this game.. I love the cartoony but original artwork and the action oriented gameplay, but there is something on this game that keeps pushing me back...

    I'm not going to talk about the cash shop because as far as I've played the cash shop has no influence on the core gameplay at all! So yeah it's not p2w!!!!

    Still the overlay is confusing... you'll end up getting alot of sidequests that will confuse you alot and drive you away from the main storyline, and theres the thing about party, I tried to party with alot of people and not even one said a word.. like they were not even interested about partying so i felt I was playing some singleplayer game all the time.

    Otherwise GREAT GAMEPLAY, GREAT GRAPHICS AND ARTSTYLE

    from my experience I'll rate it 7/10!

    Overall good experience

    I have been playing wildstar for a long time, even when it was at it worst. I actually enjoy playing the game, especially because of the artstyle, bright colours, gameplay, and atmhosphere. It's a stunning game, however after it went free to play I haven't spent as much time playing it. I think that the main reason is that i just don't find it as entertaining anymore. Other mmo games such as blade&soul has been catching my interest. Still i think that wildstar is a great game, and it's a shame that it has been having such a rough start with lots of critigue. I would definetly recommend the game for anyone who loves adventure, cartoonic artstyle and entertaing sense of storytelling!

    Feels like WoW, in a good way

    I played it in Beta and when it was in subscription model, Game have cartoonish look and makes fun from itself all the time. I will say everyone who is tired of conventional MMORPG should try it someday.

    Some people will like it, some wont.

    I played a bit of this after it went free to play. I enjoyed the combat and the art style. I also liked how they made the game very futuristic instead of the overly used fantacy setting. I don't think i've played enough to know if it's pay to win but so far i'm impressed.

    MMO of a new generation

    Wildstar is one of the best new mmo's up there. It has been originally portrayed as a WoW2 in space, but it is so much more. Fresh combat, best housing experience from any mmo's, difficult dungeons and raids. The only downside the game in my opinion is poor first impression: overwhelming UI and mln of quests can dissorient even the most experienced mmo veterans. When you get use to it you won't regret you kept playing!

    Felt different.... for a bit

    I played a lot of MMO's in my past and i mean a lot so take this review as just another opinion from a MMO player. ALTHOUGH! if i a MMO remains on my PC then that means i consider it a good MMO and one worth playing, which is one of my ways of reviewing MMO's.

    I mean its alright what holds it down is the fact it does not have much to offer classes are cool and the combat is very nice where it actually takes skill! but it also feels like WoW just in a different place and its trying to be funny at times. i didnt play much of it because i wasnt attracted to the cartoony look of this game and the combat whiles being full of skill shot nothing made me go WOW that was cool

    Overall i do not have this game on my pc anymore, and i don't really recommend this game unless you like goofy look at skill-ish combat

    It's Vanilla WoW revitalized.

    So, gameplay can be summarized as Revitalized Vanilla WoW in Pseudo-ARPG.
    Does it mean it's bad? No. In fact, the gameplay has been very well made so that it's not cumbersome or obstructing, displaying AoE effects while being cast, allowing for different types of builds, and more. Graphical fidelity is very good. Sound and music are fenomenal.

    However, the problem comes from the first statemant and title of the review: It's Vanilla WoW in a pseudo-ARPG.

    All in all, if you want to go back to WoW but can't be hassled with finding a private server, this is the game for you, because it does have a community problem in that it's quite small (Bigger than most private servers for any game, mind you) but is quite dedicated.

    F2P at its finest.

    This game was originally paid and most of the payment makes the game less of a pain in the ass in its free to play state, great PVP, decent quests, the stats need getting used to as the are described differently but overall the main bread and butter is the innovative combat which is great.

    Amazing game but low population..

    This game has amazing gameplay and graphics and will immediately make you wanna try out the game.The game has great action combat system where you aim your skills and dodge enemy skills and thus enables you to fully control your enemy..One sad thing about this game right now is the population of the game..Especially if you're in low level areas there's very few players walking around and makes you feel alone :( However don't worry about this a lot because if more people download this game and give it a try then this game will become alive again..It all depends on he players..Give this game a shot as it's free to play and really fun(oh this game has a lot of jokes too :P)

    Worth to try? OFC

    One of the best games out there in my opinion, the software house tried to much the "WoW-killer" way in my opinion, something that you can't always afford but they're getting a new way to the game that is totally worth to try.
    The only negative aspect in this game is the heavy graphic, but if your pc can afford it just JUMP INTO IT.
    Action gameplay, a lot of classes and races that gets this game a lot different from the others, something that is really worth a try, and maybe to stay into the game :P.
    Fun fun fun.

    Another WoW clone

    I bought this when it first came out and out of the free 30 day trial that you get with the copy I played about 2 weeks at most. The gameplay was borring and uninspired and the text on everything was way to small which makes it difficult to play on a laptop. I like that its more of an action game than WoW is. Now that it's gone free to play I tried going back to it but I noticed that not much changed in that first year.

    The thing that annoys me the most is that once the game went Free to Play the company did not give people who payed for the game when it came out, anything special to make it worth it to come back.

    New and Exciting

    I've only recently got back into this game since f2p launch. I'm really enjoying the Medic class. I'm hoping to get cap soon and start working on gear. The gameplay is really fun, and the questing is funny. The Quest NPCs have such crazy dialogue, I love it. You never find a game where you can laugh so much while enjoying the story.

    I recommend Wildstar!

    Wildstar is a game that you can't get the full experience of it if you don't spend hundreds of hours on it.
    I have personally spend around ~120 hours playing it and I have to say, I quite enjoyed it. It may be a bit boring at first, because the quests aren't that much challenging but when you pass a certain level, you'll pretty much get addicted to it.
    I won't start telling what the storyline is because spoiling isn't fun. But I will tell you that the storyline is fun and rich and kinda can keep you interested for a long time. As far as I heard there are a few different versions of the storyline with each class but I haven't tried it yet because I played it with only one class the entire playthrough.
    The combat in this game is what I liked the most. It's fast, responsive and you have to have at least 37% of skill to land a spell properly without getting wrecked. I like the way they implemented the combat style in PvP. I dare to say that Wildstar has probably the best combat mechanics of all games in MMORPG genre.
    The graphics are what World of Warcraft should've implemented in their game. It's polished, it's beautiful and the animations are top-notch. Colours are rich and everything in this game seems to be so alive.
    The questing is what might keep new players away from this game. In the first 20 levels, I have to agree that the questing isn't challenging and fun. To be honest, the questing is something that Carbine has to work on. A lot. I like the minor challenges in the game but that doesn't add up to regular questing.
    The dungeons and raids are fun but I have a feeling Carbine didn't learn from the fiasco with the first Wildstar. It basically tells you that you have to be a hardcore player to finish some dungeons or raids properly without being wiped out or something. I don't like that but it's not a big deal. At least it's not for me.
    The community itself is what has made me quit the game. A bunch of children that the only words they can write is profanity and nothing else. I usually ignore that but sometimes, that can get you out of tact and it's just better to keep away from something like that.
    I honestly recommend everyone to at least try this game past 20 lvl. That's when the game starts shining. If you manage to get past that 20 lvl barrier, you'll see nothing but beautiful world with a lot of content just waiting for you to be explored.

    I dont recommend

    Wildstar has a truckload of buıgs. There are still many bugs which were there from day one! Not gamebreaking but annoying UI bugs.

    They tried to create a game like wow which keeps you busy as long as it can but its just boring. There is so much in the game you would like to explore but its not your own choiche... it feels more like darn i have to go there and collect this and now that.

    There are too many events... You are questing, killing a mob and BAM miniquest and you have to do it in time! No you dont have to do it immediately but in the heat of the moment as a true gamer you have to do it...

    Dungeons are not easy. You have to watch closely and analyze boss movements and skills because it can (no it will) wipe your party out of existence.

    You need a guild in this game and teamspeak... Otherwise you just have to be veeeery lucky to get a dungeon done. Because 99% of the random community is dumb as FUCK. And i mean that honestly. Even bots from counterstrike are smarter those people. Because they run away when you throw a grenade. And the wildstar community isnt even capable of doing that.

    I gave wildstar many chances. Because they implemented a starter dungeon after a while... Then they saw that the people still cant do it right they made another "how to" dungeon...

    I dont know if its the game or that the gamer community is just getting worse from day to day. But in wildstar its really annoying.

    Wildstar not so wild

    Was excited about this game, until I played it. Graphics are fun but to me was just World Of Warcraft in space. Quests were not very challenging, the community was a bunch of whinny kids. Re spawns were awkward and annoying. Was fun for a few hours and that was it for me.
