It doesn't look special but seems fun and the graphics look nice on console with its detailed city, so expecting great things on PC, not even sure why it spent so long in development, unless it has a fleshed out singleplayer campaign to blow your socks off? The only good thing is the PVP obviously, going in and killing, grabbing the loot and trying to make it out before someone chases you down and takes it back, you only lose the loot, not the gear you enter with right? It's quite intense but don't yet see the longterm appeal, hope there's more to do to keep it interesting.

Is it worth a buy? O_o


I cannot see it justifying the extortionate 2016 game prices with long term appeal from what I've seen so far, but until played, I suppose it's hard to judge. Nowadays though, if you're on the fence about a AAA game, it means it probably ain't worth buying at RRP price.

Well, at least until it has been reviewed by youtubers and found to actually work on PC *coughbatmancough*

If my girlfriend is about, you might even get to witness a domestic. They're always fun when I'm streaming!

Welsh folk arguing. I have Italian grandparents. If it's anywhere near as funny as an Italian domestic, I'm all in.

To sum up, clunky gears of war/watchdogs mashup, a little underwheming, generic and copy paste gameplay. Kinda had fun, it's not shit but would I be playing it weeks or months after release..probably only days.

I managed to get a beta key, as it's been extended till tomorrow. I pretty much agree, especially with the clunky-ness. It doesn't handle very well and feels way too heavy. No crouch, jump, or anything of the sort apart from a dive roll and a 'press x to go into cover here' thing. Overall, the gameplay is a tiny bit naff. Got bored reasonably quickly and went back to playing Borderlands 2; A 4 year old game which ISN'T an MMO

They just don't know how to make em these days.

EDIT: forgot to mention, it runs like absolute shit on PS4. Feels less than 30fps for teh most part, with even bigger drops pretty much anywhere, and with the smoothing settings on on my telly, you just get shit loads of screen tearing.

Heard far more good about this then bad. I'm very interested, be interesting to see everything open up that's locked off in beta, the amount of loot and variation is amazing though and the PVP mechanics seem enjoyable if slightly too softcore...I really was expecting more for PVP, but who knows, maybe we'll see more fun PVP stuff at release, here's hoping!

Its a good premise, but without ppl online playing it, its a bit lame going solo mode in it... MM with randoms is well and good, but you dont know them from adam and 9/10 they're arseholes...

I'd wait until it hits a tenner on steam m8 There are more superior pvp shooters out there without the guise of "mmo" and "rpg". It felt like a glossy version of APB Reloaded with a cover system but no vehicles and in a smaller setting.
