if you haven't purchased it then you can't play the mod of the original.  You can go and play Hellgate Tokyo. That is F2P.  They limit how far you can get without a five buck purchase.

I have an urge to play this again. I looked at the F2P version but from the screenshots it looks like poop on a stick. Did they like massively downgrade the graphics?  :o

Guess I'll stick with the revival patch. Not sure I'm thrilled about the state of it - it looks like they fiddled with it so much that they ended up with a beta-ish buggy mess that they couldn't fix their way out of and abandoned the project. But meh, will try it anyway and report back.

I wish this game had survived. It was so neat and fun.


Aim low. Less chance of disappointment. More chance of a nutshot.

If you don't have idiot friends, it's possible you are the idiot friend.

I think you are mis-remembering.  I have played all three versions extensively and while the f2p version did do some weird things the graphics was always about the same.

I enjoyed the f2p.  Though it barely earns that name.  You basically had to pay 5 bucks if you wanted to progress beyond level 8 or so.

Hellgate Tokyo is still the only f2p game that I have played.

Guess they just need to feature better screenies on their website then, because what is there looks like a game from 2002 or something:

I am definitely not misremembering. My game certainly never looked this horrible.


Oh, wait. I went to the end. They get better. I guess they just let anyone post shots? Those on the first page were *really* bad. :lol:

That is pretty much what I remembered.

You do have a lower tolerance than most of us.

Though...I could probably dig up my account if you want to give it a try.
