Like a cross between Unreal, Halo and a concussion

I was really disapointed in this game, the movment controls are unresponsive, the weapon changes are too slow for this type of game and the objective isn't always clear, plus in a game were it's not very easy to run up and suprise some one a shotgun blast to the back of the head or a head shot with a sniper rifle seem to have pretty weak effect.

You want to sprint? No problem, just wait the 3 seconds it takes to "charge up" before you can sprint. Drive a tank? No problem, as long as you don't mind that the controls are non-responsive and completely frustrating. The missions are boring, everyone looks the same, blah, blah, blah. This game is not worth it at all. Very disappointing. I thought this was going to be a good game. I thought wrong.

When I saw the trailer for this game, I was amazed. It looked awesome. The graphics were quite pretty, although a little basic, think Halo 3 graphically, and it has that simple, but beautiful style to it. The soundtrack for the game is actually quite good, and the sound effects are nice. And it blends elements from some of my alltime favorite FPS games, such as Tribes, Battlefield, Halo, and Quake, and has some of its own great and nifty ideas.

That's where the good ends. First of all, the controls are not good. The configuration is fine, but your characters move too slow. You CAN make them move faster, but when you do this, you have to let go about 3 seconds before you wanna stop running fast, and no, its not lag, it does this in the single player component too. Explosives are literally a joke in this game, unless you get a direct hit, it does virtually no damage, for once a rifle does more damage than an explosive? Good sign that this game's a joke.

The vehicles are terrible, they control poorly and just aren't much fun. You'd think a game with a freakin' MECH would be good, but alas, chalk one more up for adding as much cool stuff as possible, then not actually tweak or beta test the thing. This is the worst multiplayer experience I've had in a shooter all year, and I played Bionic Commando, and despite all that game's glitches and broken multiplayer gameplay, the multiplayer is still more fun than this because the game actually PLAYS like something you'd want to play.

And the backbreaker to top it off is that there's literally NOONE playing online, the game has only been out about 3 or so weeks, and people have already stopped playing it, only games I could find were games with BOTS.

Stay far away from this.
