This is one of those games that could have been good but just didn’t have the skills to be on the top. I can surly say that this is going to be one of those games that almost no one is going to remember or would want to.
First off all I can say is that if you had not played the demo at all, and try to jump into a multiplayer match. That is going to be your last match unless you’re a hardcore kind of gamer that needs to play and just see if it can get better over time.
The controls are a bit out of place and you will tend to hit the wrong buttons, try to burst run and it seems to take forever, try to jump and end up flying wasting your boost therefore wait for some X amount of seconds that seems to take forever.
The gameplay seems to have a lot of flaws;what I mean is by the sniper seems to take for ever to kill someone even with the lock-on and well place headshots. In a one on one fight it takes awhile to kill someone, especially if they have the repair tool, or run around the corner. It would be like playing halo with everyone having X7overshield. You can mod your guy with different weapons and power up but the best one is just the machine gun;every other weapon in that game is just not worth carrying around. I also forgot, but if your team does not get the lead within the first 5 minutes then your chances of winning are slim to no being that if the game decides to team balance and it does that a lot. (During ranked; that means one minute your on the winning team next poof your on the losing, or visa versa.)
The story is not all that, it just really boring; run here do this; run here do that. Plus you don’t even get to use your custom guy.(Not to my knowledge anyway.) Really don’t even bother unless you want the achievements, but no real challenged.
PS: Last couple of online ranked matches i try to play, not a soul was on.

This game has a good concept, intersting features. But first off when i got online with it there was not a soul on. I don't want to battle bots!

I like the jetpack and pretty much all the features the game has to offer. Except for the fact that I feel the weapons are pretty unbalanced, the only weapn worth wild to carry around is the machine gun, all the others just don't feel right. Even the rocket lancher, for instance you shoot someone once with the rocket and have to reload, also you did not kill them in this one shoot, in the mean time while you are reloading, this gives them enough time to unload there whole machine gun clip ( that's how much it will take to kill you) So some real balancing issues in my opinion. This game could have been great if the weapons were acctually balanced.

I have payed attention to this game for a long time before it's realease, I was really excited for it! I'm sad to say that it was a bug dissapointment. I wanted to like it so much that i tryed to force myself to like it if that makes sence. But all in all it's just not that good. I know that it's not halo but i still think a rocket to the body should kill you same with a sniper head shot. And the campain sux!!!

I liked about this game because you have to work to get vehicles. It's not like halo 3 where you can run around in circles and poof there it is! And better yet you have missions to do and have turrets protect those objects. Spawn anywhere i want not worry about spawn-campers. I don't have to edited a private match so we can run at top speed. I can custom my loadout for what is needed in the battle.
