Gameplay vids made the game look exciting, fun to play, and it is, to a level, but not enough teamwork to be great.

I downloaded this game based on some YouTube videos I have watched. Looked like a blast despite the medium quality graphics. It has potential, but you aren't tanked to be a one-man army. It's a team-based game where you need to operate as a team to be of any use to the overall goal, which is to dominate territories and hold it. However, I was disappointed at the lack of co-operation of the team. No one was trying to coordinate combat strategies etc.

I expected it to be somewhat like Battlefield but alas, I was wrong. It's a little harder but I imagine with a little practice you might fair alright. But for me, it was easier to die than get a kill. I'm not a fan of it though. If people acted more as a team than I would definitely play it regularly, but it's nothing really to look forward to unless you can find a good platoon to join.


I was kinda excited when I saw that it had multiple vehicles you could operate. Ranges from four-wheelers, to tanks, and even has an APC that you can drive around, and can also spawn off of. Aircraft also is available, which all vehicles you can customize with unlocks obtained with points (I assume by performing kills and other actions). Most of the ground vehicles had extra slots for gunners and riders as well.


You have six classes, five of them that you can readily choose, the six being a power armor tank that is by default equipped with a scatter gun (or a shotgun in other words) and an AA canon. It has the most health out of all of them, thus, when you die in one you have to wait 10 minutes before you are able to spawn in one again. All six can also be customized with different guns and other gadgets.


This is a team-based game. As said before, it isn't meant to be a one-man army type game like Call of Duty or Battlefield. You actually have to operate as a team to complete an objective efficiently. Not going to say that there are skilled players that probably could one-man despite the fact it's easy to die. However, despite this fact, most players do not operate as a team. Go figure, that they develop so that you need points to upgrade gear, but at the same time, expect players to play as its suppose to be played. Nah, you got too many Call of Duty players on here trying to one-man tank it versus do any real playing. Once and a while you'll get a player that'll team up with you despite any lack of real coordination.

And last but not least...

The game is split up into three continents, both are very large, I'd say slightly larger than Battlefield maps. You can freely warp to each one via warp gates, They are rather decent, providing terrain that good for snipers and battles of all kinds.

It's free on Steam, so I'd give it a shot if you are thinking about it.
