What is it?
Entropia Universe is an MMORPG developed by MindArk. Although it is advertised as a free-to-play game, you will struggle to get anywhere unless you put your own money in, and it’s probably the core definition of a pay-to-win game. As a player, you’re placed in a world where you’re able to do almost anything you want. You can be a hunter, miner, crafter or trader. Each of which can have their highs and lows, but are all as fun as eachother.
Billions of ways to customise your character.
Generally good music.
Plenty to do.
Massive universe to explore.
Incredible rush when you hit it big.
Best community of any game I’ve ever played.
Quests/story was put in around ten years after the game debuted, and it really shows.
Extreme pay to win. It wouldn’t be a surprise to put in over £10,000 before you see any return, if you do at all.
Still rife with bugs.
Very difficult to figure out how to progress in the game.
I’ve played the game for about ten years now and I’m still not sure about it. I had significantly more luck than some people did which is what kept me playing, but I saw people invest much more money than they could afford to keep playing it. It’s certainly a lot of fun, and contains some of the best people I’ve ever met online, but it should come with a gambling warning. Definitely one to enjoy in moderation.
