Nadirim: Nadirim: The Indie Beast from the East

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,581MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

In the latest MMORPG.com review, we take a look at the browser-based game, Nadirim. See why we call it the "indie beast from the East" and then let us know what you think in the comments.

After almost four months in open beta, with changes coming thick and fast, Nadirim was finally launched at the start of November. The free-to-play (F2P) browser-based MMO from Twisted Tribe is continuing to be updated even now and it’s an incredibly important time for the team. This hidden gem with a refreshingly original setting is desperately awaiting valuation. The question is, are you going to treasure it, or wish it had been buried by the sands?

    Tried this game out in the beta like.. must have been atleast 6 months ago or something. Felt quite finished back then aswell. It is a good game if you dont get bored easily. I used to play these type of games all the time, but now I'm just bored so couldnt keep at it for more than a few days.

    I played this game in closed beta and I loved it but later on, they added a full open world and lowered resolution and I hate that zoomed picture so I just stoped playing... What a disapoitment...

    Played for an hour, got level 5 and ran out of energy. So the energy waiting begins!

Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."

    The two things that will likely prevent me from even trying this game are the energy constraints and the quest based system. I understand why Fremium titles do this as they have to have some hook in order to make money, however, for me it is such a huge turnoff and can easily end up costing an individual more money than a typical sub cost. I personally think games like this would be better served with a low cost sub option where energy is unlimited. If the game is otherwise good they would probably end up making a lot more money.

    I am also really really tired of quest grinders. Quests grinding in my opinion fragment a games playerbase to the point the game ends up being like a single player game in an MMO universe. I know this appeals to some portion of the MMO population but I am pretty much done with this style of gameplay.

    I love how Reviews "pros and cons" are so damn random around here.

    We just make up pros and cons for one game that can just as easily be applied to any other game that we did not apply them to.

    It looks interesting and I like some indie stuff, but the big warning flag for me is the energy constraint.  I'm a gamer first (not just an MMO gamer) and I've played a lot of Facebook games.  The central theme in most Facebook games is the energy constraint and energy starvation.

    The energy constraint can be overcome by purchasing game credits, having friends perform tasks (this is the well known click-my-links-fest).  Many of the games could be fun, despite the need for friends to perform mundane tasks, if it weren't for this.  MMO gamers strike me as the kind that like to spend more than a short time in game.  Having to deal with energy constraints without forking over cash really kills the ability to immerse oneself into the environemnt and gameplay.

    I guess it all depends on how it works out practically, but that one foible alone is enough to make me pass this one up.

    I agree with Torvaldr.  I can not immerse myself in any game that suffers from the energy constraint system found in nearly all Facebook games.  That is a deal breaker.  I won't be trying this one out.

    Seriously I actually forced myself to play this game for a couple hours before quickly removing from my system.

    If this is not one of the worst MMO's I have ever played it is close.  Saying anything good about it immediately makes you wonder if there was not some remuneration involved to get you to say that.

  • sibs4455sibs4455 manchesterPosts: 357Member

    Why is the energy constraint not in the cons, surely that is the biggest drawback to this game.

  • ForumTrollForumTroll Haltom, TXPosts: 140Member

    The lack of players has to be more annoying then the energy system. I am level 7 with full energy and no quests to do but group quests. So it is either grind till 8 and do more solo quests or find people. Both arent much fun and I lost interest already. Was fun while it lasted i guess..

    If you guys join my farmville and send me pink cows and then login to my facebook "Mafia wars" family and click on my upgrades and if 15 ppl join my army in Empires&Allies, then I will have the time available to play this game and send 10000 invites to all my friends all day everyday till they click on my links so I get more energy...

    Just another Facebook game, Don't even know why it got a review here...

  • shantidevashantideva bongholmPosts: 186Member

    Calling this just another facebook game is ignorant, alot of love and time has gone into the making of this Browser game, and as such it's made to be played now and then.This is the problem with lumping regular mmo's and browserg's into the same category...This is a very neat Browser game, made for ppl who love Homm and similar TBS games.Highly recommended.

    I couldn't play beyond the first click.  8-bit style graphics is fine.  Turn based is fine.  Low budget is fine...

    However, complete lack of animations really killed this for me.  SOOO many other free games that offer so much more.  From what people are saying this seems almost like a time management game with limited "energy" to do things?  Unless you buy more?

    You need to get out more and try some other games because there are so many free games that are far far better.

    ...or at least, that's how people used to do it.
