A fun FPS with a MMO Twist
The downside: A tutorial would be a benefit for many new players. You can often feel like you die too quickly (Common FPS problem). Rewards for holding bases have a tendency to feel nonexistent. There is a prevailing sense that armored combat just rolls from base to base like a zerg. Can lack a feeling of purpose if you are not part of a friendly guild or squad (could benefit from a quest/objective system of some kind). Achievements lack any notable impact.
Planetside 2 has does some things right and others lack follow-through. As a Multiplayer FPS, it is currently the best I have played (beating the CoD series in my opinion) It is worth mentioning that Planetside 2 is the first free-to-play game that actually enticed me to spend money.
