Vindictus is an action packed free 3D MMORPG game developed by devCAT and published by Nexon. It is known as Mabinogi Heroes outside of North America and Europe, since it is a prequel to the MMORPG Mabinogi.

This free MMORPG is powered by the Source Engine, offering some of the best graphics ever seen in a free-to-play game and deep interaction with the game world. The walls will crumble and entire buildings fall down with the power of your actions. It adds an unexpected element to combat, which is extremely visceral and satisfying, with blood spurting from enemies right from the spot where your blades sliced.

In Vindictus, party play is not just a formality, it is something you need to be aware of and take extreme care in planning. When you’re battling a huge spider you’ll need one of your party members to distract it while other throws a chain around its legs, so that you finally get to walk past unnoticed and deal severe damage with your sword. Also, when you visit a dungeon the map will always be randomizes, so you’ll never get tired of walking through the same walls.

Collect precious rewards and craft unique items in the dungeons and develop your character. Customize your gear with stats via the Enchant system and color via the Dye system. By doing this, you assure that not only you have some powerful gear but it will also be stylish and original. In Vindictus you may even fight in your underwear – too much damage will break your armor and reveal what kind of undergarments you’re fond of!

This game is fun to play, and its fast paced and well, amazing.
how, here's the problem:
The customer support is non existent.
Basically, if you have ANY problems, your doomed, and if you sent a Ticket, 80% of the time they will auto close within minutes of sending with no reply or reason as to why, or you will wait a few months/years to get a reply, Or they reply without actually helping or telling you anything.
Oh, did I mention the lovely auto ban system they have? They don't actually have to ban you now, the system decides to ban you for say, overgrinding, or dungeons. Really, go check it out. :)
and guess what?
There's more!

This is the only mmorpg I've ever played that didn't begin to bore me after reaching like level 20. I'm now level 34 and I still don't have the feeling that it would be pay to win. Anyway. The graphics are awesome, the story line is alright, and the dungeons are really enjoyable. Also, I love the party creating system. It's really cool that you don't have to find a lot of friends first before you can conquer battles but you can team up with anyone in a minute. The battle system is awesome, there are a lot of techniques and they are easy to use. Downside: the game has terrible lags when there are many players or enemies. Well, I decided to just live with that. I wouldn't give up the best (f2p!) mmorpg I've ever found just because of this.

Great game with extremely bad problems. way expensive shop. enhancing failure is 100% without premium items. nightmarish lag. worse economy i have seen on a game.
but the story is nice. graphics are too good. you will feel like you are playing single player really. community is almost non existent. i barely talk with anyone. and i'm lvl 74.

Great game! Started today :) Combat is stunning, and gameplay is awesome. Only downside is probably the bugs (only a few but they are annoying) and the gender-locked classes. I hope as I play more I won't be forced into paying for cash shop :( Great game, though! Oh and BTW the game is not 2GB it is about 6.38GB + the Akami Interface Session (Which is very small)

First, as I played only vindictus Eu, its what I talk about. Dont know bout other versions.

I played since closed beta and used to bugs.
But lately this game has become broken beyond playable.

Both pillar karok and bow kai are broken. if You want play (for some strange reason), stay away from these 2 chars. Pillar karok has been bugged since release and still no fix...

Every patch seems to make more new problems then it solves (last patch destroyed royal army base raids and these haven't been fixed in 4 days. No info is given will it get fixed at all).

In itself, vindictus is great game, but thanks do nexon poor management and devcat loss of interest in it, it hardly a game i would recommend.

I guess, if they haven't been able to fix bugs that have been reported since closed beta, more then 2 years ago... Why should we play it? Its better listen vindictus BGM in Youtube then actually try play this broken mess.

~TO every one who post's how can i play this look in to changeing your ip adress and to the one with the hack detected propblem put down your fire wall and also check to see if you have a software that changes codeing of others thangs.~

As far as the game gose i find haveing to party being annoying at time's yes but also makeing it better when you start off their are people their to help you out. The bosses all are hard and fun in their own way the skillz and weapons are cool and they seem to have one for every type of player (sythe lover here) i am lvl 50 and i have to say the grinding in the game is not to bad if you make some friends i often help my friends grind so they help me back and then with some one helping you grinding is not so bad the only real problems with the game is nexon is hosting it and their a mean company who know how to wring money out of you($20 sunken in my 2 chars) other then that i found it a fun game that offer alot more then most gmaes out their. It has lovely graphics a nice communty open market cool movments while fighting that all seem to flow even with the people who will press random bottons the cons inner armor is rilly anoying not much hair styles and make up enless you buy kinda foces you to work with other people for some misssions all characters are gender locked and after the quests you lose sight on what to do. Other then that i love the game alot and play it more then aion and c9 combined. thanks for reading ^^

this game is awesome at first till u get to the point of having to run the same instance over and over again just to complete a quest with very little if any reward and the crafting system is way to tedious, there is no other way to get gear unless using real money or buying from marketplace there r no vendors that just sell gear and enemies do not drop gear unless u break it off which almost never happens

This game is fun until you run out of quests and have to grind dungeons for exp. I hate having to rerun dungeons. The good thing is that fighting new bosses and entering new raids is fun. However its annoying to have to wait until someone wants to do the same dungeon your doing because that dungeon is unpopular. Its also annoying how the dungeons are being hosted by the party leader. If he does not have a great connection, everybody in the party is gonna lag. Its very exciting when you learn new skills and you wanna try to test them out in a dungeon. However its also annoying to grind for AP to make them stronger. Transformations are fun and powerful, but leveling them takes quite a while because they can be used 1 every hour.

Played this for about four months, and it was a lot of fun.

Though dungeon-instance based, this is a great game because it is a fast paced MMORPG. It really separates itself from the generic WoW-ish MMORPGs out there. Combat is so much more involved and exciting. You need to do more than random button smashes to pull off combos, but they aren't as complicated as executing combos in fighting games (i.e. Street Fighters).

This game is more oriented towards PvE, so there is a lot of team-play. If you prefer, you can also solo dungeons.

- Gets repetitive after a while
- Grinding for skill points
- Botters ruining in-game economy

This is a beautiful, fast paced and well done MMO. I'm incredibly surprised it's free and this is the first F2P MMO I have ever spent any money on. Albeit it was a whole $5 (I dunno why I just wanted a pony tail for my character lol) but still, I've made it however many years playing F2P games and never spent a dime on them, until this one came along then somehow I really didn't mind.

This has to be one of the most beautiful F2P MMOs I've ever seen and the physics engine for it is just as impressive. break everything in your path and be rewarded for it as well! Each dungeon has a different set for difficulties as well as goals. Single player, do it in whatever amount of time, don't use feathers (revival thing in the game), don't use health potions, etc. Every angle of the game has a different way to engage the player and keep them busy for hours.

Crafting in the game though, personally I find tedious but it works. I am only lvl18 after a couple of days of playing with a friend so there may be more then what I know of at the moment. From what I gather though, as you continue the story line (quests) you gather recipes from different boss encounters and dungeons. When you bring them back and finish the story line for it, you are able to go to one of three people in town and if you have gathered the ing. they need, they will craft the items for you. You can even enchant, enhance or dye an item several times. Of course as with many other MMOs you have a chance of degrading the item or even losing it all together so it's a chance you take.

The play style is genius and incredibly fun! So far I have enjoyed the Mage character (I think she's Eve or Evie, I can't remember) almost too much. I definately recommend this game to anyone who has been playing games for awhile and is looking for something new, this is an incredibly refreshing approach to MMOs and will have you hooked!!!

I could only play this game for a short time due to the fact that my PC is so old, however the time I did play I was very impressed.

Personally, I have played almost every single F2P that has come out in the passed few years, this one blew me away so much that I am sitting here at Newegg hovering over the check out button for a brand new PC I built...

I must have more Vindictus.

I've been playing the open beta for around a month now & have to say the game overall is incredible. It's a must try if you're fed up with the cookie cutter MMORPGs & enjoy more of a fast paced game along the lines of say a Devil May Cry or God of War, but still like the character customization & skill tweeking of RPGs. I do have some cons to point out though, most of which are attributed to it being beta. 1) peer to peer instances cause lag: you will find yourself temporarily frozen from time to time 2) graphical bugs: these seem to be brought on by the lag at times, if you're familiar with source engine games you'll probably recognize the occasional character model distortions that invade the screen, sometimes so bad you're practically playing blind. Restarting the game client corrects this.
