    Apart from being a solid online FPS with well-implemented action, tactics, factions, vehicles, bases, etc, Planetside makes a recommendable job of finding its own niche in the crowded arena of online games. It's not as d... Read Full Review

    I would say although certainly not the most graphically immpressive. They attempt and to a large part succeed at many things. First getting 100's of complete strangers to work in unison is cool. They rules force player... Read Full Review

    A true score, I have to agree with the gamespot review, at first when I got this game I really did have fun with it. Later on I found some problems I really didn't like for example how the aiming works, this game takes ... Read Full Review

    What a total pile of dog crap this game is! You might as well play Tribes 2 or Battlefield because they are more fun and don't cost nearly as much. I hate when a company gets this ambitious with a game, then totally scr... Read Full Review
