    Old game still kept alive I don't know how I don't know why.
    Two thirds through beta Neocron was the most amazing MMORPG ever, so filled with people (whose characters had physicality was in place and could or couldn't be shoved depending on their stats) that it was necessary to know lesser used paths in order to avoid too crowded streets, features were abundant and more were yet to come, there were no classes a la ultima, graphics were good and atmosphere was top notch.
    Then Reakktor started pulling features away and canceling those promised. Many people left even before the end of free beta, launch ended in a massacre.

    Today Neocron graphics are utter crap, controls are pretty bad, interface is convoluted and especially crafting tools could use a streamlining but after the death of Fallen Earth I felt nostalgic so do yourself a favor and try this, because it fills me with sadness to watch Neocron with NOBODY playing it.

    Man, I used to play the hell out of this game when I was... younger.

    I actually tried it "recently", about a year ago or so. Runs well on Linux, Wine be praised.
    Anyway... the controls and interface killed it for me. I just don't have the patience to deal with games that get in my way like that anymore.

    I played it several months ago for the first time, was fairly interesting but I remember having some problems with the interfaces and what to do.

    I'm on an actual spaceship. No joke.
    I tried it a few months ago too. It's a ghost town, unsurprisingly.

    People are waiting for Neocron Classic. That's why there's barely anyone playing. Neocron Classic is the better version as it doesn't have the shitty half baked ideas from Neocron 2. Problem is that NC Classic is buggy as hell so we're still waiting.

    also walking in front of where my character used to live left on my face a huge smile. i'm just too damn romantic for this world =_=

    You shouldn't. Point was though that its in the works and if its ever finished without being a shitfest lots of players will be playing there.

    today i teamed with two other people in a low level area. i'm going to cry.

    the grind is pretty heavy, i remember tinkering with lots of implants from the get-go but now i have to be shot in the face for hours to level up some constitution.

    Shame Reakktor got duped into believing that they'd be able to cash in on arena shooters with Toxikk. No one bought it or played it and now we might not get a Neocron 3 because of it.

    I bought and played it!
    For a few hours until I realized it is actually a pretty mediocre thing not coming close to those few that are doing well.
    No idea what they were thinking.

    You will, just as a Fan project. People were talking about upgrading Neocron 2's engine and adding new assets to the game.

    Okay, so why should I play this? What are the main features? Stop waxing lyrical about the game and actually get people interested

    You shouldn't, the game is an outdated pile of mess, has been like this from day 1 actually.
    Not a single bright idea or mechanic out there, a typical failed gen 1 mmo when people had no budget and no idea.
    And unlike some other failed mmos from the previous decades, there aren't any interesting or brave or crazy experimental features here either, just an overwelming mediocrity.
