    I read about this game. Sounds interesting, one player acts like an RTS while the rest go FPS. Not my cup of tea though.

    Pity it looks nothing like this in game and the gameplay is terrible.

    Seems every new game has to have dubstep in the trailer.

    My nephews have been trying to get me to play this with them... according to the younger one the game`s biggest plus is that it`s free to play on steam.

    Looks interesting. I think I will stick to Entropia Universe for now though.

    I`ve been playing this for about 2 months. And i can vouch for the epicness! Free to play, massively multiplayer first person shooter. A max of 6000 players per server, 2000 per continent. Enourmous epic battles between massive tank columns (biggest i`ve seen was about 100 vs 100 tanks), with air support and infantry flanking maneuvers.

    Highly recommended that everyone try it out!

    Not really.. The standard weapons are pretty good. It`s mostly side-grades and specialization. And the only thing you can`t get by getting experience points is decals and camo for guns and tanks, that sort of thing.

    I tried it, but apparently my graphics card is incompatible... I can run Skyrim on max settings, but can`t even play this on low. And I exceed the recommended system requirements... Meh.

    great game, you can pay to get better weapons but still need xp ingame to get upgrades for those weapons, so you cant buy upgrades.

    Pretty good game, some small balance issues in my humble option, but yeah, pretty good game.

    What i really love is that peeps that spend money on the game cant get anything that people that wont put money down for it. not paying for it just means it takes a bit longer.

    tedgp: But it does! This is actual game footage, it`s demanding as hell, but it does look like that on max settings.

    Modwain: They`re not better, they`re better for their purpose. The starting weapons are designed to be good all-round.

    Personally I love it, but the learning curve is VERY steep for beginners and unless you can come to terms with that as an infantryman your lifespan averages that of a lit matchstick the game is probably not for you.

    I wish they`d do stuff like this on a monthly payment rather than pay to upgrade.

    Oh yes, and if any of you are ever on the Miller EU server, New Conglomerate faction look up Allister, I`ll hook you up to a good, casual outfit.

    Vimto: You can unlock everything in the game by just playing it, apart from vanity items such as disco balls for your troop transport or inefficient camo (since your faction`s colours are still showing through, brightly). I won`t lie to you, it will a lot of hard work, but it`s very possible.
