Gamereactor has review Darkfall Online from Adventurine giving it a rating of 4 out of 10. Below is the closing paragraphs of the review:
"Despite pointing out a lot of negatives about Darkfall Online in this review, the game does have qualities. Joining a guild with dedicated players is fun, but that's pretty much a fact in every online game. Good social relations can make you endure even the most horrible online games. Darkfall Online seems to be on par with, if not even better than, other MMO-games when it comes to politics, clans and guilds, mostly because of the incredibly dangerous world your character live in.
But the biggest problem I have with Darkfall Online is that the game has too many annoying elements that feel outdated and unnecessary cumbersome and ruin my enjoyment of the game. Maybe I'm not hardcore enough, maybe I'm just a simple "carebear" who demand a more refined and accessible gaming experience. There is no doubt that quite a few players will love the non-compromising gameplay and chaotic game world, but for me Darkfall Online is just a chill reminder of ancient and unwieldy game mechanics and a game I really can't recommend."
