“Waste of Potential ”

Written on: 09/11/2014

in the early 2000s, this site was great. it didn't have many games or features but it had a good community with a friendly atmosphere.. then... it got bought by Viacom and a slow decline followed. poor management, laggy clusters of ads, terrible customer service, little to no mobile capabilities, and a growing collection of broken and unfinished features caused its once large and thriving playerbase to leave in mass. It is best to avoid communicating with players since the forums are where most are likely to get iced or silenced. the chat is heavily censored (seriously dont talk about grapes and crackers! both those words would get their asinine word filter very angry at you) and so restrictive you're better off leaving it alone anyway. the site is not as bad as many here make it out to be however... it still has a nice collection of free games to play, stories to read, and several worlds to explore. Personally, I still find neo fun to goof around for an hour or two on a rainy day or dull Saturday ...just don't get too invested because if something goes wrong, you're not going to find much help. neo is so poorly maintained that it's just not worth putting serious effort into. it will take a really dedicated staff to get this soon-to-be 15 year old site to shine again. Recently, it has moved over to jumpstart: a company known for their educational pc games ... Many of the dwindling neo community have fond memories of jumpstart from years ago, so there is some hope things will change. but only time will tell for sure. still has a long LONG way to go if it wants to see any major success again.
