    Naraka is hard, like really hard. Once you made it past the bots, you will have to learn the mechanics. You either die as a casual or live as a progamer.

    I love this game to death. It has one of the best gameplay loops I can think of and is nearly the perfect BR for me. Which is why it sucks having to write this review. The staggering amount of eastern players on US/EU servers is frankly unacceptable. You can go from a 30kill game to a game where you can't even react because the enemy is desyncing so much it makes a mobile seizure look like a stock image. You never see them get banned but they flood the leaderboard and every match. You're only hope at a good game is doing quick match and praying the chinese players with VPNs are only looking to MMR climb in ranked. Blood bath is usually extremely fun as there is no competitive scene behind it so you're 99% of the time playing with players with a decent ping. When losing against players who are simply better than you, it is still fun and satisfying. You can think back and go "Oh I should have done this," or "if I would have countered here I could have turned that around." Losing in such a manner almost never makes you rage. Losing against a player dysyncing who is pulling off combos then teleporting behind you or somehow countering you 3-5 seconds after you've swung does not feel good. It can completely destroy an a good time and will genuinely make you drop the game for the night or entirely. Until a strict stance is taken against VPN and desyncing players I refuse to spend another cent on this game and will advice others to stay away.

    Wonderful game with a great battle system, but terrible netcode

    Foreword

    I got to know "Naraka: Bladepoint" through a friend. At first I was very skeptical, so I only bought the Standard Edition, and later the Ultimate and Deluxe Editions. First of all, this game has a steep learning curve with its battles. Exactly why the game may not be suitable for everyone. Unfortunately, that doesn't make the playerbase any better, but read more about that below. Nevertheless, the game and especially the combat system offers a lot of potential and has a lot of posivites to offer.

    Positives

    Regular updates with ever increasing content

    Few to almost no bugs and if they are, then they are fixed very quickly

    Steep learning curve - Especially at the beginning the game is not easy, but you can quickly get into it with friends

    Pleasant graphics

    Nice sound design, which is location dependent

    Potential to grind for higher ranks and for the Hall of Fame

    Different game modes and events

    Extremely extensive combat system - many possibilities to conter weapons

    Extensive stats, either ingame or with Naraka+ mobile app (app is absolutely top!)

    Well thought through character designs

    Extremely individual character editor - From Thanos to Bruce Lee everything is customizable.

    Neutral

    Climbing system - It's really good compared to other games. However, you still sometimes get stuck on edges or can't get to the platforms above.

    Microtransactions - I'm personally not a fan of them, but it's not a must in this game and doesn't favor anyone.

    Answers of Discord team members very questionable on some questions

    Negatives

    Terrible netcode - players with highpings are treated preferentially

    Few European players - Extremely many VPN players with many different Asian characters and languages in the voicechat

    Voicechat is not well thought through

    Partial performance losses

    Ranking matches are partly wrong - Either with new players (Bronze) or experienced players (Asura)

    Partially bad English, as well as German translation

    Some abilities are combined absolutely disgusting and unfortunately more or less meta

    Review written out

    Naraka has become a real love-hate relationship game for me. I love the extensive combat system and also the steep learning curve from noob to a slightly experienced player. (I am Platinum 1 - Solar 5 at the time of this review). So while the combat system could be frustrating at times at first, I love it all the more now. Only the climbing system, as well as some combinations of abilities or ultimates could be revised. For example, it is common practice (meta) that many players use Ultimates that stun and ensure that you immediately get into the next Ultimate. This is sometimes a bit frustrating, because these combinations are played very often and other heroes, especially the new ones, are not really played because of it. However, you can work around these combinations or counter them yourself. Unfortunately, this is not always easy, especially for new players. (For example, the combination of Valda - Viper - Tianhai). However, a victory and the killing of opponents, especially higher ones, with whom you are unfortunately sometimes matched, releases a lot of endorphins in Naraka, so that a victory feels extremely rewarding. Unfortunately, this brings me to the part that makes it extremely difficult for me to decide on a positive rating for this game. The game, for being released in 2021, has a horrible netcode for a martial arts battle royale game. There are extremely many Asian players who connect directly or via VPN to the europian servers. This is especially noticeable when you activate the voice chat, which by the way, has no individual regulation for volume or a mute function per player. Unfortunately, those players have a ping beyond 150ms. Sadly, this is a big problem for people with low latency. You partly punch through enemies bodies. Various focus attacks are therefore not always blockable or the opponent lags at you, while the player for himself has no lags at all. This is not only unfair, but should actually no longer be a problem in 2022. For example, it would be enough to not let players with a ping greater than 150ms/200ms move. According to the Discord community manager, there is a region lock and most of the names are just "memes" . But you don't notice anything about the region lock in the game and we can theoretically connect to other servers. Another big problem is the matchmaking. Even with Bronze or Silver, you are matched with Asura players when there is a lack of players. This is not necessarily nice, but you get a lot of points for survival and you also learn a lot of techniques. As negative as this all sounds, the game still gets a positive rating from me. I love the sound design, which comes into its proper place in the battles and is different for each location on the map. This reminds me of Prince of Persia in some areas and provides more excitement in fights. In addition, the varied battles, no matter how hopeless they sometimes seem, are all the more rewarding if you win. Especially when you're killing another team, consisting of 3 people, as the last survivor of your team. The map design is also absolutely great. Every location has been carefully thought through. Great lighting design really highlights some of the locations. You can overlook small bugs like misplaced branches (a branch hangs in the air next to a tree). But my favorite part is the grinding to a higher rank. The ranking system and especially the Hall of Fame encourage you to play. Getting into the top 100 of a much-played character feels very rewarding. So does slaying a moonbane.

    Epilogue

    All in all, despite the flaws, Naraka has a lot going for it, and even though the larger issues can be extremely frustrating, the game saves itself with the extensive battle system, the incredibly great locations including sound design, and the extensive ranking system including Hall of Fame. I love the game because of the thoughtful little things, even if I hate it extremely at times. Even though the game can quickly become frustrating for new players, you should be aware that it has a lot to offer if you are willing to learn. The accompanying app is an extremely well thought through and great gimmick in this regard. I would be happy to take you by the hand and introduce you to the game. Just visit us on our

    All the negative reviews that cite the issue with Chinese players ruining the game for the NA/EU audience could not be more true. I read them, bought the game anyway to give it a shot and your very first public match you'll be greeted to just how bad it is trying to play against someone from China using a VPN. You can't hit them, you can't counter them and they'll land 100% of their abilities on you no problem. The fact that more of an effort hasn't been taken to remove these players using VPN's, lag-switches and other nefarious methods to get the upper hand in this game shows just how little the Dev's care about porting this game to the west. It's to the point when you queue into a match, just look for the players with Chinese characters in their name and you'll already find the winners of each round. Couple the above with the fact that this game is basically a melee-clone of Apex Legends with a generic "eastern" theme and suffers from the same lack of new maps (any), that Apex did for months means you'll get tired of the same play each time. If getting face-rolled for hours on end by Chinese players in an apex-knockoff battle-royal game is your jam, then 10/10 this is for you. For everyone else thats sane and isn't a masochist, look elsewhere.

    • Combat is well thought out, responsive and fun • Character customization is one of the best I've had, since I was able to make myself in it • If you enjoy Battle Royale games but want something different, this game will satisfy that need • Challenging combat mechanics • Bots in this game are pretty good at times and put up a good fight

    • Smurfs migrating servers aren't punished and placed in lower ranks, making the game a lot more unfair and difficult to climb • There's a small story about the characters, but it's not that interactive and fun to read • Easy to learn, hard to master mechanics

    Content & Replay Value

    NARAKA: BATTLEPOINT is a Battle Royale like no other. Its main focus is on its combat and it's really good at it. With amazing visuals, controls, and responsive combat mechanics this game feels really well thought out as a Battle Royale game. The menus are simple to follow and if you want to drop in and out of the game you can. You're not being forced by it, but rewarded for playing regularly. Be careful as when you plan to take breaks and come back, due to the nature of this game being difficult, you can expect to return having to relearn moves and counters.

    Is it worth buying?

    Yes, without a doubt. The game offers a large array of fun and out of all the battle royale games I've played, this is by far the most polished and fun if you love action games.

    Verdict: Very Good

    Rating Chart Here

    If you take the game and how it is at its core, it's a very good battle royale game that can't be found anywhere else. I do feel that the matchmaking and server migration should be worked on and with a good population, this game could become a really fun experience for new players.

    NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is designed to offer a brand new experience of combat and world exploration, featuring a boundless movement system, and an easy-to-use grappling hook mechanic, allowing you to interact with any objects around the world, and a sophisticated combat system involving block & parry mechanics.

    ⚔ Gameplay:

    Rate: ★★★★★ NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is at its core a Battle Royale game. Its objective is very much similar to other games of its type. Compared to the rest of them, you're given the choice to spawn wherever you wish on the map before you join the game. Each character has unique abilities, inspired by the Chinese culture, making each encounter fun and difficult. Your objective in the game is to eliminate your opponents and remain the last man/woman standing in the game. The game offers as well many other game mods where you can level up your weapon skills and become better at the game. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2799123380

    😄 Fun:

    Rate: ★★★★☆ I'm not going to lie, I've had a ton of fun playing this game, and despite being very difficult encountering smurfs and knowing for a fact that they will put up a challenge, winning against them really gives you a sense of victory only a soul-like game could. It's fully packed with action so it's hard to put this game down, but it can get really frustrating at times when you can't compete with players in your own rank and you end up fighting people who are higher ranked than you, yet they are in Bronze or Silver ranks. That can put you off and therefore doesn't deserves 5 stars.

    🏞 Visuals:

    Rate: ★★★★★ The game looks really good and character customization is really good. As you can see in the screenshot, I've made myself in it with a striking resemblance. The game looks great outside of the character customization area and the costumes and effects are really well polished. It's a gorgeous-looking game. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2799123168

    🔊 Sound:

    Rate: ★★★★☆ Sound for abilities, voice acting, and interacting with the world sound good. Music is also good but becomes repetitive at times. If you like east-Asian instrumental music you'll enjoy this game a lot.

    📖 Story:

    Rate: ★☆☆☆☆ Sadly this game doesn't really have a story that will keep you somewhat engaged. At least not at this point in time. What I saw is that by playing the characters you like, you unlock new abilities and as well a part of the log or story related to the character. I wish they were presented as cinematics or something else, but not just a bunch of text. I can't consider this to be the strongest point for this game.

    🧵 Length:

    🔲 Short 🔲 Average 🔲 Long ☑️ Unlimited This game is a multiplayer game, so it doesn't have an ending per say. You can play it for a couple of minutes or hours as I did. It's easy to get lost in the track of time in this game.

    🧩 Difficulty:

    🔲 Easy 🔲 Normal ☑️ Hard ☑️ Brutally Hard 🔲 Impossible The main reason why so many players found this game off-putting is the fact that is really difficult for new players to get used to the controls and combat. I personally had no issues and I was able to get through pretty much each game in the top 5. That can help you grow in rank in theory quite quickly.

    ⭕Conclusion:

    NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is a very fun, action battle royale game, but really needs a more active population in the West. There should also be more restrictive migrations from other servers as it can really ruin the experience for new players who want to play this game. I honestly think that any player that doesn't like Battle Royale game should try this game because it simply feels different than any other. I had a lot of fun with this game.

    Coming back to this game after taking a break after the 2nd month release. These are my thoughts. Typical battle royal loot tier system but the combat is the selling point (Think FortNite Loot). You are rewarded for playing offensively vs turtling or running away in most other games. Which is way more fun. Think about how fun classic WoW pvp is vs playing WoW 2022 arena where you have to blow through every defensive CD to kill instead. zzZZzzz.. There is a learning curve but spending 20-30 min practicing will greatly improve your results in game. Like many fighting games there are combos and mastering them is very satisfying. This game has a very anime style battle feel to it where you can have a great impact in the game by being skillful. Fighting multiple opponents is common and you will get cheezed more often than you clutch but that's what makes those moments where you outplay multiple people feel so special because you spent that time training. I've had a lot of moments where a battle can feel like a movie. Right now its on sale for $13 but its normally $20. I don't agree with the sentiment that this game needs to go free to play because every game that does it is rife with hackers & cheaters. If you can't afford a $20 buy in then you really shouldn't be playing video games. Finally I wanted to add that they've added a lot of content to the game since release; 3 more heroes and 2 new weapons. They balanced the souljades and added map features that add more dynamic to the game such has anti ult zones, map/terrain improvements, more game modes (duo queue!) than simply battle royal. More heroes now have defensive cd's that can intterupt combo chains and allow you a fighting chance vs being beaten down from 100% life to 0% without the ability to fight back. This game has changed a lot since release and if you're curious to try again I highly encourage it. Also playing with friends is much more fun than playing alone. Naraka is also very entertaining to watch (especially on twitch!). Don't let the negative reviews lead you astray. I've had a lot of fun for a small $20 investment as there is no p2w only pay for cool cosmetics.

    No more running around, collecting loot for 15 minutes just to get one shot by a sniper from 2 km away. Combat is super fun and daily missions/activities can keep you playing for the whole day.

    Jan 18, 2022

    The game is not worth the price tag, it should be a free to play game.

    Let me elaborate: 1) Basic bare bones combat I was expecting something like Shadow Arena with several very distinct skills and playstyles per class. Here all you can do is light attack, strong attack, parry, block, roll, hook, dodge, a skill and an ultimate; just the basics. Lame. If you're going to be doing a melee battle royale, the combat better be at least action MMO tier. 2) Terribly optimized For the level of meh graphics on offer, the game runs pretty poorly. 3) Bots There are bots everywhere and it completely sucks the fun out of the game. If I wanted to farm some bots, I would just play some stupid cash grab MMO. 4) Grind You're going to have to grind to unlock about half the heroes, cosmetic items, glyphs, etc. It isn't a short grind either. All in all, I would have liked to refund the game before exceeding 2 hours of play time but Stockholm syndrome caught hold of me and I couldn't help but play some more to see if it's any good. It's not that good, 6/10 at best. I'll probably continue playing for a bit more, maybe every now and then, but I would not recommend it.

This is especially noticeable when you activate the voice chat, which by the way, has no individual regulation for volume or a mute function per player. Unfortunately, those players have a ping beyond 150ms. Sadly, this is a big problem for people with low latency. You partly punch through enemies bodies. Various focus attacks are therefore not always blockable or the opponent lags at you, while the player for himself has no lags at all. This is not only unfair, but should actually no longer be a problem in 2022. For example, it would be enough to not let players with a ping greater than 150ms/200ms move. According to the Discord community manager, there is a region lock and most of the names are just "memes" . But you don't notice anything about the region lock in the game and we can theoretically connect to other servers. Another big problem is the matchmaking. Even with Bronze or Silver, you are matched with Asura players when there is a lack of players. This is not necessarily nice, but you get a lot of points for survival and you also learn a lot of techniques. As negative as this all sounds, the game still gets a positive rating from me. I love the sound design, which comes into its proper place in the battles and is different for each location on the map. This reminds me of Prince of Persia in some areas and provides more excitement in fights. In addition, the varied battles, no matter how hopeless they sometimes seem, are all the more rewarding if you win. Especially when you're killing another team, consisting of 3 people, as the last survivor of your team. The map design is also absolutely great. Every location has been carefully thought through. Great lighting design really highlights some of the locations. You can overlook small bugs like misplaced branches (a branch hangs in the air next to a tree). But my favorite part is the grinding to a higher rank. The ranking system and especially the Hall of Fame encourage you to play. Getting into the top 100 of a much-played character feels very rewarding. So does slaying a moonbane.

    Epilogue

    All in all, despite the flaws, Naraka has a lot going for it, and even though the larger issues can be extremely frustrating, the game saves itself with the extensive battle system, the incredibly great locations including sound design, and the extensive ranking system including Hall of Fame. I love the game because of the thoughtful little things, even if I hate it extremely at times. Even though the game can quickly become frustrating for new players, you should be aware that it has a lot to offer if you are willing to learn. The accompanying app is an extremely well thought through and great gimmick in this regard. I would be happy to take you by the hand and introduce you to the game. Just visit us on our

    All the negative reviews that cite the issue with Chinese players ruining the game for the NA/EU audience could not be more true. I read them, bought the game anyway to give it a shot and your very first public match you'll be greeted to just how bad it is trying to play against someone from China using a VPN. You can't hit them, you can't counter them and they'll land 100% of their abilities on you no problem. The fact that more of an effort hasn't been taken to remove these players using VPN's, lag-switches and other nefarious methods to get the upper hand in this game shows just how little the Dev's care about porting this game to the west. It's to the point when you queue into a match, just look for the players with Chinese characters in their name and you'll already find the winners of each round. Couple the above with the fact that this game is basically a melee-clone of Apex Legends with a generic "eastern" theme and suffers from the same lack of new maps (any), that Apex did for months means you'll get tired of the same play each time. If getting face-rolled for hours on end by Chinese players in an apex-knockoff battle-royal game is your jam, then 10/10 this is for you. For everyone else thats sane and isn't a masochist, look elsewhere.

    🟩 Pros

    🟥 Cons

    • Combat is well thought out, responsive and fun • Character customization is one of the best I've had, since I was able to make myself in it • If you enjoy Battle Royale games but want something different, this game will satisfy that need • Challenging combat mechanics • Bots in this game are pretty good at times and put up a good fight

    • Smurfs migrating servers aren't punished and placed in lower ranks, making the game a lot more unfair and difficult to climb • There's a small story about the characters, but it's not that interactive and fun to read • Easy to learn, hard to master mechanics

    Content & Replay Value

    NARAKA: BATTLEPOINT is a Battle Royale like no other. Its main focus is on its combat and it's really good at it. With amazing visuals, controls, and responsive combat mechanics this game feels really well thought out as a Battle Royale game. The menus are simple to follow and if you want to drop in and out of the game you can. You're not being forced by it, but rewarded for playing regularly. Be careful as when you plan to take breaks and come back, due to the nature of this game being difficult, you can expect to return having to relearn moves and counters.

    Is it worth buying?

    Yes, without a doubt. The game offers a large array of fun and out of all the battle royale games I've played, this is by far the most polished and fun if you love action games.

    Verdict: Very Good

    Rating Chart Here

    If you take the game and how it is at its core, it's a very good battle royale game that can't be found anywhere else. I do feel that the matchmaking and server migration should be worked on and with a good population, this game could become a really fun experience for new players.

    NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is designed to offer a brand new experience of combat and world exploration, featuring a boundless movement system, and an easy-to-use grappling hook mechanic, allowing you to interact with any objects around the world, and a sophisticated combat system involving block & parry mechanics.

    ⚔ Gameplay:

    Rate: ★★★★★ NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is at its core a Battle Royale game. Its objective is very much similar to other games of its type. Compared to the rest of them, you're given the choice to spawn wherever you wish on the map before you join the game. Each character has unique abilities, inspired by the Chinese culture, making each encounter fun and difficult. Your objective in the game is to eliminate your opponents and remain the last man/woman standing in the game. The game offers as well many other game mods where you can level up your weapon skills and become better at the game. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2799123380

    😄 Fun:

    Rate: ★★★★☆ I'm not going to lie, I've had a ton of fun playing this game, and despite being very difficult encountering smurfs and knowing for a fact that they will put up a challenge, winning against them really gives you a sense of victory only a soul-like game could. It's fully packed with action so it's hard to put this game down, but it can get really frustrating at times when you can't compete with players in your own rank and you end up fighting people who are higher ranked than you, yet they are in Bronze or Silver ranks. That can put you off and therefore doesn't deserves 5 stars.

    🏞 Visuals:

    Rate: ★★★★★ The game looks really good and character customization is really good. As you can see in the screenshot, I've made myself in it with a striking resemblance. The game looks great outside of the character customization area and the costumes and effects are really well polished. It's a gorgeous-looking game. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2799123168

    🔊 Sound:

    Rate: ★★★★☆ Sound for abilities, voice acting, and interacting with the world sound good. Music is also good but becomes repetitive at times. If you like east-Asian instrumental music you'll enjoy this game a lot.

    📖 Story:

    Rate: ★☆☆☆☆ Sadly this game doesn't really have a story that will keep you somewhat engaged. At least not at this point in time. What I saw is that by playing the characters you like, you unlock new abilities and as well a part of the log or story related to the character. I wish they were presented as cinematics or something else, but not just a bunch of text. I can't consider this to be the strongest point for this game.

    🧵 Length:

    🔲 Short 🔲 Average 🔲 Long ☑️ Unlimited This game is a multiplayer game, so it doesn't have an ending per say. You can play it for a couple of minutes or hours as I did. It's easy to get lost in the track of time in this game.

    🧩 Difficulty:

    🔲 Easy 🔲 Normal ☑️ Hard ☑️ Brutally Hard 🔲 Impossible The main reason why so many players found this game off-putting is the fact that is really difficult for new players to get used to the controls and combat. I personally had no issues and I was able to get through pretty much each game in the top 5. That can help you grow in rank in theory quite quickly.

    ⭕Conclusion:

    NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is a very fun, action battle royale game, but really needs a more active population in the West. There should also be more restrictive migrations from other servers as it can really ruin the experience for new players who want to play this game. I honestly think that any player that doesn't like Battle Royale game should try this game because it simply feels different than any other. I had a lot of fun with this game.

    Coming back to this game after taking a break after the 2nd month release. These are my thoughts. Typical battle royal loot tier system but the combat is the selling point (Think FortNite Loot). You are rewarded for playing offensively vs turtling or running away in most other games. Which is way more fun. Think about how fun classic WoW pvp is vs playing WoW 2022 arena where you have to blow through every defensive CD to kill instead. zzZZzzz.. There is a learning curve but spending 20-30 min practicing will greatly improve your results in game. Like many fighting games there are combos and mastering them is very satisfying. This game has a very anime style battle feel to it where you can have a great impact in the game by being skillful. Fighting multiple opponents is common and you will get cheezed more often than you clutch but that's what makes those moments where you outplay multiple people feel so special because you spent that time training. I've had a lot of moments where a battle can feel like a movie. Right now its on sale for $13 but its normally $20. I don't agree with the sentiment that this game needs to go free to play because every game that does it is rife with hackers & cheaters. If you can't afford a $20 buy in then you really shouldn't be playing video games. Finally I wanted to add that they've added a lot of content to the game since release; 3 more heroes and 2 new weapons. They balanced the souljades and added map features that add more dynamic to the game such has anti ult zones, map/terrain improvements, more game modes (duo queue!) than simply battle royal. More heroes now have defensive cd's that can intterupt combo chains and allow you a fighting chance vs being beaten down from 100% life to 0% without the ability to fight back. This game has changed a lot since release and if you're curious to try again I highly encourage it. Also playing with friends is much more fun than playing alone. Naraka is also very entertaining to watch (especially on twitch!). Don't let the negative reviews lead you astray. I've had a lot of fun for a small $20 investment as there is no p2w only pay for cool cosmetics.

    No more running around, collecting loot for 15 minutes just to get one shot by a sniper from 2 km away. Combat is super fun and daily missions/activities can keep you playing for the whole day.

    The game is not worth the price tag, it should be a free to play game.

    Let me elaborate: 1) Basic bare bones combat I was expecting something like Shadow Arena with several very distinct skills and playstyles per class. Here all you can do is light attack, strong attack, parry, block, roll, hook, dodge, a skill and an ultimate; just the basics. Lame. If you're going to be doing a melee battle royale, the combat better be at least action MMO tier. 2) Terribly optimized For the level of meh graphics on offer, the game runs pretty poorly. 3) Bots There are bots everywhere and it completely sucks the fun out of the game. If I wanted to farm some bots, I would just play some stupid cash grab MMO. 4) Grind You're going to have to grind to unlock about half the heroes, cosmetic items, glyphs, etc. It isn't a short grind either. All in all, I would have liked to refund the game before exceeding 2 hours of play time but Stockholm syndrome caught hold of me and I couldn't help but play some more to see if it's any good. It's not that good, 6/10 at best. I'll probably continue playing for a bit more, maybe every now and then, but I would not recommend it.
