Question:-

How's the gameplay specially the shooting mechanics?

Also is there teamwork involved or you end up running on your own most of the time? (i know teamwork depends on how players approach the game, but when joining a game does it throw you in with a small team of other players, or randomly on your own)

Malta_1980

Been playing since earlier this morning. The mechanics are pretty tricky, especially on mobile vehicles, but the shooting feels really good. Nice kick and great sound effects too. Only complaint so far is that some of the stationary turrets seem underpowered, and the splash damage on some explosives is practically non-existent.

As for teamwork, you can go lone wolf if you'd like, but chances are you won't get much done, if anything. Capturing even remote locations seems nearly impossible without a squad, and major bases take a full platoon or multiple platoons to take.

Lol teamwork shooter

K/D ratio is the only thing that matters

Have you not seen any Robbaz BF3 videos? That man racks up like 60% of his teams kills.

The more posts i read on this game the more i get interested..

Currently downloading.. 61% its quite slow when it comes to downloading.. probably due to heavy traffic on Steam..

It's pretty ok. I think it gets better as you understand it better and get more weapons and stuff.
So far I'm liking Tribes:Ascend more than this.

Tried it earlier today and didn't like it.

Not surprising though as it's F2P.

He probably just thinks it sucks cause it's a F2P game.

Team Fortress 2 is free 2 play

When did he say that?
Oh that''s right he didn't.

Just because he doesn't like it doesn't mean he only likes corridor shooters. He has Crysis in his avy ffs.

I know.

Some magic from Valve I guess. :P

Hell, Valve is one of the best developers out there, so yeah.

Yeah he always does that. If you don't like a game he just assumes you don't like it because it's not CoD.

Well unlike Mag, this game actually is fun and not riddled with lag, bad framerates, and horrid graphics (unless you're running some 3 year old AMD machine).

In 15 minutes you may experiance .05% of the game and understand about .01% of it.

You just started. That's like complaining the tutorial of a game wasn't fun.

Tutorial is different from the main game, it's aimed at introducing content at a slow, and easy to grasp pace--it doesn't aim at bringing entertainment. I jumped straight into the game, and it wasn't fun. If the main game can't nail at least 30 seconds of fun in 15 minutes of multiplayer action, then the game is sh*t.

Maybe you could elaborate on what you didn't like, instead of just thinking of so many creative ways to say you hated it?

You're asking way too much of him, I think. He's using both of his brain cells to criticize, doing as you suggested would require actually thinking, which could overload em.

Just curious that you'd talk down to someone who enjoys cod yet the only screenshot you have of FPS multiplayer on steam is from blackops...
