The game has a lot to go and huge shoes to fill. I think it to be the nature of MMOs that each one is compared to others, be it WoW or AQW. The game honestly needs a lot of fixing, refining, and overall polish.
In my time currently in AQ3D (20.2 hrs) here are a list of grips I've had:
-Out of combat healing feels slow
-The lack of a healing button/animation makes it feel like your time resting is unproductive
-Enemies aggro for far too long of a distance
-A glitch where you fall through the floor is common in dungeons and on respawn, the glitch continues (needs /unstuck)
-No sprint button
-No version of enchanting
-Finishing a zone has no real indicator beyond no more quests from the quest vendors
-A lack of an overarching storyline (Not a huge grip given that it is in open beta)
-Moving with the forward key while turing the camera still means your character moves in the original camera's foward
-Instances of areas exist but aren't stated, nor can you join a yulgar-9999 type of instance to meet up with friends, meaning if you have a large group, meeting up in one area is hellish ( /join graveyard(party) would be stellar
-The barbershop costs 500 gold however you can't rotate your character model to see the back of the hair (female characters are especially a victim to this)
-Quests with random drop requirements do not drop the same for every player, meaning if you're doing a quest that requires a box that has a 20% drop with a friend, you may finish ahead and need to wait for your friend
-Sound is incredibly lacking
-Some items don't have descriptions, which is disappointing
-Inventory is not sorted by item type but by order obtained
-Mana gain in combat is laughably unnoticable
-Eye color choice would be nice, a choice from the entire color pallet would be great
-CC gear would be nice
-Hide helmet, cape, pauldron, etc would be great
So in short, there are many flaws with the game. However, as with AQW if you think you may get into it, it's best to start now. It's an investment, a promise that when the game gets good (which I do believe it will) you'll have been there from a very early point, meaning you have very rare items (at least by AQW standards, in which the older, the rarer).

I would like to state up front im no expert at this, i will try my best.
I really like this game several walls need to be smoothed out so when you walk into them and then you climb the wall.
All in all it's a very fun game i played the frist game in the seris a few weeks after it was released and i really enjoyed it skip forward a year and then you have the 2d mmo we all know and love.
And just like it's first humble begaining i am sure once the game is fully finished and all the areas are added it will bring back the joy we all had when we first made our first accont only to make another because we forgot the password.
i rate 9/10

Not going to comment on the graphics because it's made on a limited budget by a fairly small team but the gameplay is really bad. You basically run around place to place fighting repetitive monsters to complete poorly made quests that offer no sense of progression whatsoever. Even for an early acess game this is just poorly made.

I love this game, reminds me of World of Warcraft. It's deffinitly different from AQW. Although the community is just full for raging little kids, the game it's self is quiet enjoyable. I would suggest it if you want a nice peaceful MMORPG game to just relax and enjoy.

I grew up with AQ Worlds and all the other similar types of games in that genre. I sometimes went back to the browser AQ worlds to just check out what has changed since I was a kid and I saw a small teaser for 3D AQ worlds.

I went in having low expectations and they were met fairly well

If you have low expectations from this dont worry! Its fun! You just have to like the world and lore and that compensates for lack of depth.

Another Con for this is that you can download it onto your smartphone and play right where you left off at. If you are new to the series...dont waste your time here. If you wanna free to play experience look elsewhere

AQW in 3D form, but the map is huge, bland and so empty, you have stamina to enter a dungeon where the enemy drop items that you need to craft armor and weapon, while you need a lot of these items, the enemy only spawn once until you quit the dungeon and restart it, and crafting actually take times like hours so you can't immediately equip it like in AQW. Oh, there's also a few more, like most the armor and weapon is either a recolor of the others or completely new design, where most of the time you need real money to get it. Did i also mention with that huge map you can't run? But don't worry, you can transform to random animals that makes you move faster and looks cool! But for a price of course!

I can't feel the passion of the developers at making this game. Its like they made this game for money only. AQW is definitely better, maybe you should try that one instead.

feels like an early access alpha/beta game but with AQW added and in 3d. Of course there is bugs but thats execpted with early access games in general. Plus the developers are not soom noobs so they can turn this into a great game given time and people's interest. just keep in mind this is early access and dont hold the tourch as high as Ark or AQW to begin with. look for potental and not reasons to hate this game.

Play it if:
-you're bored
-you have played other AE games,
-you dont mind a grind
-you can keep in mind its early access, and not a polished product.

Dont play it if:
-you dont like grinds
-you need a story to get behind (ashfall might change this I guess, we will see)
-you are looking for the best looking game out there... (you can however use Reshade -https://reshade.me/-, and tone down the saturation, add in some better FXAA, add better bloom, and add some sharpening.)

Compared to other AE games, this one seems promising, but will need some good content to really convince me its a game worth sticking with. as of now, it has seemed pretty one dimensional, however that is expected, as the devs work through making their first 3D game. promising concept guys, just follow through :D

This game is good but it has a few bugs. What I enjoyed was the fact that it reminded me about the 2d version and that it uses pretty much the same maps. What I didn't like it's inventory just didn't work so I would say it should be fixed.

It has been a month or 2 since I have played it so hopefully they fix the bug.

an interesting game to say the least the lack of a U.S. server doesnt bother me much... the biggest andmost terrible issue is actually that the game doesnt fully shut down through steam... some background task or something i dont know either way going through task manager and processes and programs whatever i cannot find this ... forign proccess to close down in order for steam to say the game is not running any more... hence why i'm un installing the game after so many hours and force ending steam boostrap just so i can update my pc... good game not so grindy at low levels didnt make it past lvl 30 so... but yeah seems fun wlying right off the bat is nice too since the first available dragon has wings lol. taming is a simple reverse direction game ... kinda like reverse sumo wrestling :D the distinction between tamable dragons and untable is not apperant (think someone who is good at it should be able to tame just about anything) quick bar could use the ability to be changed from default keys to custom (num pad keys would be great).
also as far as changing keys maybe being able to set look to arrow keys instead of mouse would be nice...

but the greatest problem is the inability of the game to end for steam without ending steam itself

At the moment AQ3D is lacking. that said it also has the potential to go vary far. the game is still in Early access and to be honest, it shows. they only have 3 of the 4 starting classes from AQW and one class that you can pay to buy. the mobs, so far look good (nothing out standing, but thats part of AQ's charm) and the combat is almost the same as AQW (just with some added depth.

But the burning question is this. Is Advenure Quest 3D worth playing?
Yes. Sure it needs some work, but after they get AQ3D up to full throttle it will be as good or even better then the last two installments.

Adventure Quest 3D is basically like Adventure Quest Worlds put in 3D. The game is pretty much what you would expect from a Beta game. It is missing many cool features that were in AQW. For example you can't upgrade armor, meaning if you got a low level armor that you prefer more than some of the high level ones whoop de doo. I have completed all of the available quests for now and I'll be honest it took me 40 hours to get to level 15 with massive grinding. Storyline is decent so far and the classes in the game are also cool. I didn't understand one thing though you get to pick a class at the beginning, but it doesn't matter which one you take cause you can swap classes on the go, basically like Runescape at that aspect. Overall a fun game to play for some time at least and Multiplatform so far works great.

I've been playing Artix Entertainment games since 2004 and I have to say that I've never been happier to see a game released on Steam since AQ3D came out, and I have to say was thank you, Artix Entertainment for trying so hard for us, and we love you guys and your games. The gameplay is incredibly fun, but it seems like you don't even gain XP unless you kill around a hundred monsters. But thank you for trying so hard for us.

This game is fun if you actually try and make friends that will help you grind. Ashfall and other updates may make this game better but for now keep in mind that this game is early access and still needs developement. Playing this game alone or solo of course makes it boring. I recommend this game for people who like to socialize.

Been on the original AQW for 7.5 years, I definitely have high hopes for this game!

It's currently in early access so I do recommend it.

You'll probably only like this game if you enjoyed AQW.

The EXP curve is terrible, even if it's supposed to compensate for the low level cap. You'll get to the point where if you want to level up, you'll have to grind certain dungeons a bunch of times, not to mention that they give far less EXP than story missions (which you probably can't do if you are grinding the dungeons for EXP in the first place).

The graphics are nice, with it being capped at 60 fps. Everything has good brightness (loving me that bloom). I'm also glad that there's actually sound effects in this game. That spawn-in sound effect is kind of annoying, though.

Now, the controls are a bit wonky. Realistically, no one is going to be comfortable with strafing their character and turning WITH THE SAME HAND. You can control the camera with the mouse, but doing so while moving just makes the camera snap back to its original position, making it a pain to use in combat. Controls would be fine if that was fixed.

only about an hour in but i am genuinely enjoying myself. sure, the graphics arent the best but they are pretty damn good considering you can also play this game on your mobile phone. its a little grind-y but i dont mind that in a game. it seems like there are some really cool things to find, do, and craft as you level up and i havent encountered anything buggy so far. the game is exactly what one would expect- i feel like every negative review is just people who were expecting more.

The game is a bit good but graphics are a little....bad but still a fun game to play, However the premium currency is unobtainable through simple non-paying gameplay(Although its still in open beta so they probably make Dragon Crystals obtainable soon.) The Leveling Up system is a bit grindy(considering the lvl cap is still at 15,It will probably change soon.) But still looking forward for the full release

Community ain't Cancer like in AQW. Discovered lots of Bugs like: When i attack an enemy and then someone else does too i can't attack it anymore. Snevils keep glitching when i movie away. They get stuck between other Players or other monsters.

My Hopes are high tho. I will get straight Personal here now:
If Cysero keeps leading this Game it's gonna be good.
Hopes are high and my head is hight.
One and all a pretty good game already. Remember the Time when i played this when it was in Alpha Mode. Was fun.

Graphics: 9/10
Gameplay: 8/10
Enjoyment: 8.5/10
How often you die: 99999999 times

To conclude this Review:

The Game is good, has a lot of flaws here and there but is ok.
Of course it's early access so my hopes are high.

Great game with unique elements. It is not pay2win but I have no idea why a lot of people said that it is pay2win. There are still of lot of bugs around but none are fatal. It kept me busy for 30 hours until I reach max lv. and more content will come soon. If you are a player who like playing and waiting like myself, at this state, I choose recommended.

Typical AE game. If you've never heard of this dev and somehow stumbled upon this with its currently "mixed" overall reviews status, I recommend checking out Artix Entertainment's Adventure Quest Worlds. That is what I can forsee the game becoming. Which is essentially a decent immersive story were it not for the constant grinds and microtransactions.

For AE fans, you can be sure to check back regularly for AE's latest creation sculpted identically to every other game they've made, but now it's in 3D.

i dont like where the game seems to be heading 20 buck guardianship to get guardian armor though expected playing aqw and battleon i still dont like the thought of pay to win gear being a things in the game. there is also a crafting timer taking at the moment only 30-40 minutes i can see items in the future taking days to complete almost making you need to speed it up with real money, there also seems to be a key system for the dungeon 1 key per dungeon starting with 20 keys each key taking 2+hours to respawn. the game is still worth checking out it can work on low spec computers its fun glitching yourself up trees and building and there is some funny dialogue but i can see this game becoming basically pay to play.

- The quest, story, and almost everything feels repetitive.
- Bosses aren't rewarding enough. There some enemy that took 5-10 minutes to kill but the game gives the same XP you will get from killing 2-3 easy monster. The XP scaling system shouldnt be applied to big bosses.
- XP, Gold, and Class Rank scaling sucks. At level 30, Level 5 monster is giving the same XP as level 15 monster, which just doesn't make sense. Atleast give a good range than just lazy 1-5 xp and gold.
- It's hard to preview an item. I dont wanna go to my inventory then click on an item then click again to just see what the items look like. It's just annoying. I understand it's to make the load easier but this isn't an online unity browser game anymore.
- Theres no mini map. Navigating through the world is just hard, I mean if we already unlocked and finish the map there should be a minimap to help directing me to the places I wanna be. I dont want to open youtube every time I forgot wheres the NPC location.

I honestly DONT MIND the game lack of content. At 80 hours ish I finished all the main story and side story. But those little thing could be improved to make the game WAY more enjoyable.

Please just do something so the player feel REWARDED every time they play this game because that literally the only reason people play video game.
