I personally have hundreds of hours played in this game over the last 3 years. I highly recommend it for anyone able to stick to a game for more than a week, even if you only play a few minutes daily. If you want a head start you can use my referral code to sign up, giving you and me some goodies: https://www.torn.com/1857022
The 'base' game is pretty easy, you train your battle stats or fight and you do crimes (with energy and nerve that regenerate over time). But there is a lot of depth to the game starting from there. You can join companies for work and various perks, earning you a daily salary and growing your working stats - or you can start a company yourself. You can join or start a faction to group up with other players, engage in faction vs faction gameplay and gain even more (passive) bonus perks. You can become a trader and trade with items, stocks or even player services (including artwork and coding of scripts) or manipulate the markets. You can be a mugger and relief other players of the heavy burden that their cash is to them. You can become part of the racing community and focus on improving your racing skill and your lap times on the different race tracks. You can be a reviver and make your money by offering reviving services. You can play in the casino and become a Poker legend or make money betting on real life sports events - or play russian roulette with all your cash to loose it all in one go (honestly, gamble responsibly ðŸ˜‰). You can involve yourself in the faction politics of the city map. Or you can play a character in the forums and farm Karma (or troll the community). There are endless ways to play this game if you are creative.
But for most players Torn is a marathon, not a sprint. So be ready to set yourself some longterm goals and stick with the game for years to come. Or don't even start if you are looking for instant gratification.
With the event for Halloween coming up (Main attacking event of the year for many players) and Christmas Town in December (which can earn you hundreds of millions even as a newcomer), now is a great time to start!
Feel free to reach out to me ingame if you get lost or need any help!
Nice game, but when it comes to the forum moderation :))) you will probably get banned for not agreeing with the lgbtq communists
Great game honeatly, the community on it are very welcoming and friendly, people always wanting to help you, and for a crime game it has everything you want and need, from stealing from shops, to kidnapping and murder, its a game you need to make an effort with you have to be committed to get great gains out of it. Casino is in it and racing and stock market and you can even set up your own shop and company and faction. GREAT GAME DONT MISS OUT!
Cracking game, been playing for well over a year. Definitely grindy, but in the sense that it's designed for you to progress and grow slowly. You're never short on things to do and the game allows for a multitude of playstyles, whether you're wanting to focus on fighting or make your name trading on the markets. It's great fun and devoid of predatory microtransactions, which is always a blessing. Feel free to use my referral code if you fancy joining - you'll get 250 points and 31 days of donator status for every ten levels you gain, which amounts to a good chunk of in-game cash! :)
Game is fun at the beginning, then it becomes grindy and plain boring. Most players act like grown ups gangsters that steal your hard earnt income. 0/10.
You want a game to invest your time and money, without dorks around? play The Grail Lords. I switched and I have 0 regrets.
Fun the first two months, after that is grind as f***, most players behave like gangsters. Definetly not worth it after playing for 1 year.
Now I play The Grail Lords and I have 0 regrets, great game to invest your time.
This game has a lot going for it but the main thing is that the community is really solid. Like with any mmo there are going to be lots of stronger players, but the community is large and active. I never worry about my stats because there are lots of targets in every level range and the game is developed enough that there are several play styles. You can join a relaxed faction and play casually or a more active faction and put a lot of time into warring or a factions with particular specializations. Most factions are looking for active and engaged people, they will help you out. It's a good time for new players to join because by the time you get settled in it will be time for the bigger events of the year where you can make a lot of money and quick progress. Most factions are looking for active and engaged people, they will help you out.
Check out my referral if interested. Message me in game I'll help you get started.
This is easily the best text based game i have played. it looks and operates very well. i have been playing it for many years now and do not plain to stop any time soon.
This game is utterly boring, not much rewards for paying members. Mostly endless flying and buying stuff.
Terrible game. Very repetitive tasks, no real progress.
Really a fun game.
I would love to help new peoples to start.
This game is just perfect if you have a couple of minutes per day to spend in a game, it has a nice feeling of proggress and it's full of surprices! 5/5
best online text based game ever!
If you have good guide from the start you can advance very quick!
Paying for their monthly donor pack hurts you more then helps.
Definitely worth a look, good long term game
All you have to do is not be annoying to not be annoyed. Stay under the radar and you're good.
Boring game full of cyber bullies.
This is a mafia game where:
-the best way to make money is to travel to buy and resale plushies. YES. Plushies. And Flower. Yes, F***ing flowers! Rinse and repeat as much as possible
-the best way to train your stats is to do a weird combination of watching porn DVDs + taking xanax + taking ecstasy and training in the Gym. Rinse and repeat as much as possible.
-You can have the best stuff in the universe, have a perfectly min-maxed training, you will still lose in one hit to a 7 years old player even if you have played 5 years.
-Doing crimes is useless, both in terms of XP, stats or money.
-Nothing is realistic. A ford mustang costs 17,000 dollar but a box of chocolate is 3,000, a LSD tab is 60,000 and a porn DVD is 5,000,000.
So many things in this game are broken. There is a great potential, the community is great, so I don't understand how the devs can be so bad and not see how the game is now repetivive, boring and most of all, absolutely absurd in so many ways.
By far the best text based mmorpg. Join via the following link for freebies and assistance within the game from an expert:
It's a risky game if you pay real cash.
game is fun., when you are not getting attacked, bountied, harassed by higher levels. Spending day in and out in the hospital with bounties..why....NO IDEA
How can you not love it. It's the best
great game ! great community ! great market !
If you wanna play, i will teach you how to scam people and get rich.
Iâ€™m coming up on my tenth year playing torn city...Itâ€™s the only game I play...I have made real world friends from all over the world! The forums and chat are super active. Player run games and player run community. The only issues are the constant cheating multis but they are taking larger steps to find and erase them...the game is full of drama,chaos, whiners,bullyâ€™s,awesome people,weirdo people...just like real life. My rl girlfriend hates games and now SHE is addicted....5 star hands down best text based mmrpg of them all...try it Asap!
Awesome long term game with many different ways to play this game. Make money, build battle stats, run your own company.. there's always something to do in Torn. Sign in via this link to receive free advice and get yourself a head start! https://www.torn.com/1890233
I've been playing for about 2 and a half years and it's probably the most active community I've played with so far with all kinds of people from different cultures. It being mobile friendly is also good for people who aren't always glued to a PC and promotes more activity. For people that say levelling is slow - It's really not if you're active. And level isn't necessarily a top priority to be successful in the game anyways. There's no pay to win. You can donate thousands to the game but at the end of the day what matters is activity and consistency. There's many different playing styles just find what you like to do. Most of the complaints I have read come from a lack of understanding of certain game features just remember people come to the internet to complain. Don't be scared to try it yourself.
It's the best browser RPG - By FAR!
â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜… (5-Star Rating)
It's so addictive and life-like, but you need time to understand what to do.
Here's a list of things I've discovered so far...
*Commit crimes from shop-lifting and pickpocketing to arms trafficking and kidnapping.
*Meet others, get married.
*Get a job or run a company - hire other players to work for you.
*Earn daily wage.
*Buy things, trade thing.
*Buy/upgrade cars to race against other players.
*Gamble in Torn's casinos (blackjack, roulette, craps, lotto, poker, keno, high-low, slots).
*Work-out in the city gyms to increase strength, speed, dexterity and defence stats (unlock new gyms as you get stronger).
*Travel to other countries.
*Attack others (options to mug, leave or hospitalise them if you win).
*Claim bounties, or put a bounty on another player's head.
*Join factions and war against other factions for respect and territory.
*Complete missions from mission givers.
*Earn merits and points to buy special items and upgrades.
*Bust other players out of jail.
I've discovered all this within 6 months of playing. I login and play at least 8 times a day :D
Pretty awesome game. Thought it wasnt gonna be all that great, but within the first day of playing I was hooked and immediately became a subscriber. No regrets. Im trying to find something else to top this game and havent YET! If you're looking for a good browser game this is the game.
Try out Torn City!!!
Great addicting game: as you progress you will unlock many features and it gets much more interesting. The list of things you can do is HUGE and It's actively played by tens of thousands players every day. Very active and kind community (many people helped me in the early game).
It's a nice game but be advised that the faction system is "pray not to get hispitalized".
One of the best games i play hands down
Very addicting game, the more you play, the more you unlock new features so it never gets boring.
This is a great game. It is very difficult for beginners, and as you progress, many features unlock and the game gets much more interesting. Again, it will be very hard to start off though. There are players that have played for 10 years, and they are of course no match to you, but you can easily take out players that started 2-3 years ago if you are patient enough.
This is the real deal. The best game of them all. If I had to quit playing Torn City I would just cancel my internet and chunk my computers into the ditch.
Highly immersive and addictive as you progress.
You start off with very little cash and a shack to live in so it can be too off putting for some. For a good start in the game, cash and items, drop me a line. I'll help you out.
game is broken and has a cancerous community^^ lvl 60+ players spamming lvl 5 - 10 players with bounties putting you in hospital for life.. yea.. gg game not making it so that high lvls can't attack low lvls.
A great game that I'm enjoying still, but the bounties/attack system is indeed sooo broken, shame..
if anyone is looking to start an account and use this guide and you use my referral code you will get 2m and a special item when lvl 10 is reached and 5m and a special item every 10th level!
The game is an excellent one in which you get out as much as you put in. There are many ways of earning cash such as making sigs ( for artists out there), running one of many companies, trading items and buying from players and AI in game in other countries.
You can train in the gym, buy drugs to boost gains etc.

I have played this game for over 10 years now. It was and still is a struggle to get into the top league of players. There are people younger than me that have surpassed me, and people older than me that I shall never catch. Some people have tens of billions of dollars, while I have worked hard for only a few. Some people have billions of stats, and can afford boosters to further increase their lead. What it comes down to is that it is not about what those some people have done, but what you do and who you do it with. I login to play more to socialize with people I have met, and possibly meet more. I have met such good friends that we have met in real life. I have been part of a few different HoF factions, and been in some really fun wars. I have been on IRC, chat, forums talking to other players. I have been mugged for large amounts of my hard earned cash, but I have mugged others too. I have won big and lost big in the casino. I have had friends betray me, and rivals become friends. Most of all I have had fun.
To many hackers and cheats. too slow to play. But an okay game. Does not interference in the real world.
Do you know what software is used for a game like this? I wanna create my own.
It's php. There is no software, it's just a database driven website.
This is no doubt the best text based game out there, thousands of active players, really competitive and super addictive.
It's hard not to be impressed by Torn. It has a HUUUGE volume of players, tons of in-game items, seemingly a lot of things to do and some really awesome graphics for a text browser game. I originally came to torn from Bootleggers...
However, Torn is a trap. After the first few days you realize that almost everything costs way more than you can afford, the timers are slow to refill, half of what you do in the game puts you either in jail, hospital, travelling, etc all of which lock you down so you can't do anything in the game. You're locked down for HOURS sometimes days. And this is a 'feature'. To make any sort of money in the game you have to travel to collect items from various countries and then sell them in sets. Travelling... the main way to make money in Torn, is the most boring thing. You are locked out of all features except the Forums. For many, many hours. You come back 'home' drop off your items, then travel again. For HOURS.
Many of the features like banking and Education, take weeks (real world WEEKS) to complete. It's a game you can play for 3 minutes then log out for days, come back for 3 more minutes. All for an abiguous purpose. There are no missions implemented in the game or storyline at all. It is a game of clicking to earn game money and items... for no real reason. You need to play for real Years in order to get your character to a decent level and then what? I'm not even sure what you're supposed to do once you're rich and powerful.
Needless to say, I log in every few weeks to see if any exciting changes or updates have been made... but mostly I've gone back to Bootleggers and Roboid on occasion.
Don't waste your time on Torn... unless forums, slow-motion play, and hoarding game items are your thing. Could have been great. :(
You can mug / attack other people to earn money! It's very rewarding! It only costs you 25 points of energy (75 minutes to wait) if you don't want to refill instantly!
Great game. Been playing for 8+ years now, very addictive. And the best part is that you can play for 5 minutes or 5 hrs. There is so much to do!
An awesome and truly addictive game, with loads of new updates being rolled out since the big RESPO update last year!
Torn is a brilliant game, but it is not for people who want to be able to "win the game" in a week. People play Torn for years. It is always growing and developing, with games within the game - like a Casino, full play poker, racetrack, in game bookie and regular competitions.
Great text-based online RPG.
So much depth to this game it's unbelievable. No wonder they have thousands of active players have been playing for over 5 years.
Torn is no doubt the most addictive text based game out there. Really easy to fall in love with.
Interesting game and has a lots of depth. It's a long term game where you can go away from game for months or even years and come back pick up from where you left off. If set up properly, your character can even grow on some areas even when you're not online to play it :)
Big NO from me. It is the SLOWEST game EVER made. seriously form LVL 9 to 10 is like 8 months now and i play the game every week that is so dissapointing. This is so slow game that you think you are in slow motion. i once didnt log in for half a year and in that time i got mugged one dollar and that was all the action. and the companies kick you out if you dont log in every day, very sad and slow overcrowded game.
You play it every week? No wonder why it's hard for you to level. This game is about long term play. So stfu and learn to play. It's a real interesting game where you have to work to get levels. Of course it's not like all these games where you level up very fast Buy yourself a brain before telling shit like that.
Torn might be the first and only browser game that i play on my laptop that also has a responsive site for mobile, well done! This game is very challenging and not boring at all you learn new stuff almost at each new level and there is so many things to do where you can choose from.
This game is great, I've been enjoying it for years.
An amazing text based RPG! In the midst of the crime ridden city of Torn, run by the worlds most corrupt government, you find yourself a newcomer in this city. Everyone is in a league far beyond your own, and you wont see yourself goin anywhere fast. But with enough time and dedication, you'll find yourself going far! This game is not for the impatient, but if you can give it that amount of time that's needed, you'll find it very rewarding.
you're not limited to one path or play style, you can be a Crime Lord who owns their own faction with followers who will help you get to the top! You can be the business king and own your own oil rig, and make the big money. You can be the heavy hitter, taking out all who stand in your way and collecting bounties. All this and more are for you to do! Its up to how you choose to play the game and how you decide to enjoy it.
Give it a try, I suggest getting to lvl 15 before making your decision, giving you plenty of time to see what all is available for you.
Torn City is a text based online crime RPG game, constantly evolving and never seeming to lag behind in keeping up with the changing times. It's a bit hard for new players to understand what's going on around them initially, but with a little help from older players they will soon get addicted to it. There is hours and hours of stuff to do here when you get to know how the game works. Definitely a recommended game.
Great game, nice to be able to just log on for 5-10 mins through the day and use energy and nerve. Plenty of things to do though if you want to spend and hour or two on it.
Great game. Takes some time to work up but a lot of fun and a lot of active people.
I've played torn for nearly 8 years... so i'd say it's a brilliant game... would recommend to anybody if your willing to play for a long time...
I think the most popular text based game out there. i mean it's like atleast 10 years old game and jail is always full of people, not to mention the overcrowded hospital.
Great long term game commitment required to suceed and build up your player 10/10
amazing game all should join
