At first i thought i wasted my money THEN after 50 hours of game time: I'M HOOKED, this is some powerful multiplayer.
I don't/rarely play PVE, so i don't wanna talk about it other then its a good time sink.
But the multiplayer is EXCELLENT (in capitals, big capitals) --- other than that robot battle game mode, (demolition) which is 'meh'.
Dare i say 'better than TF2' or more likely 'I like it more then TF2'
So to end this review: I'm going the subscription route, even tho i do not AvA at the moment, so i can recommend this game even if you wont/cant pay the subscription because the boxed game without the subscription is just that good.
