    A multiplayer Call of Duty 4 (and so on...) clone, nothing more. Also, it's lagging soo hard sometimes and you have to shoot soo many bullets to the enemy to kill him/her. Anyway, the graphics are good, but it's not enough to call it a good game.

    Not a good game at all. Poor graphics(not good enough to compete with other f2p's), poor character and weapon customization, bad maps( maps allow you to camp), poor gameplay, a lot of children players. The worst side about the game was unrealistic weapons, having lag always even with lowest options and the truth that if you want to get some kill streaks you must be a camper.

The only good side about the game was that it was free to play i think and actually it isn't a pay to win. Expand

    If you want Call of Duty, buy Call of Duty. Even if all you want is a simple FPS, don't bother with this. Arctic Combat is a just-different-enough-not-to-get-sued ripoff of the COD series with terrible translation, abhorrent voice acting, and lag bad enough to ruin any fun you might accidentally stumble across. The first grenade I tossed was greeted with a guttural "Grenade throw!"If you want Call of Duty, buy Call of Duty. Even if all you want is a simple FPS, don't bother with this. Arctic Combat is a just-different-enough-not-to-get-sued ripoff of the COD series with terrible translation, abhorrent voice acting, and lag bad enough to ruin any fun you might accidentally stumble across. The first grenade I tossed was greeted with a guttural "Grenade throw!" muttered by someone who must have completed a two-week correspondence course in English the night before; text throughout the game must have been rushed through the first Korean to English translator that came up on Altavista; and every second player who walks into my crosshairs jitters back and forth before careening into walls and ignoring their hitbox, making the game nearly impossible to play. When I finally get fed up with the poor performance and decide to exit, the game freezes for two or three (real, literal, no exaggeration) *minutes* before finally dropping me back to the lobby screen.

    Don't think I just dislike B-quality imports, either: I still fire up Combat Arms occasionally because it's a genuinely entertaining game with good level design when you get a few buddies on the same server. Arctic Combat, however, doesn't even know how to draw a "B" when provided with four hours, an unlimited supply of pencils, and a personal handwriting coach.

    Its promoters portray the game as some kind of slick, advancement-based MMO that encourages teamwork and quick reflexes, but let it be known: This is nothing but an FPS, and an extremely poorly implemented one, at that. Do not waste the bandwidth to download it.

    This game is very bad.

    Pros: Good graphics from unreal engine, Good weapon sounds, Good Animations, Online bot match Cons: Takes way to many shots to kill someone, Extreme lag even on lowest settings, Weapons and animations replicate Cod4, Killstreaks promote camping, Game mechanic where you get many kills you become weak, Lots of children gamers (cod players) camp, base rape, text
    This game is very bad.

    Pros: Good graphics from unreal engine, Good weapon sounds, Good Animations, Online bot match

    Cons: Takes way to many shots to kill someone, Extreme lag even on lowest settings, Weapons and animations replicate Cod4, Killstreaks promote camping, Game mechanic where you get many kills you become weak, Lots of children gamers (cod players) camp, base rape, text troll, no teamwork, and smart a*s-ness, Weapons cost too much, Very bad AI.

    Overall this is an exact copy of (what else) CoD. It is not a fun game because it relies on cheap players rampaging, base raping, camping, and using killstreaks then getting rewarded for that play. However, if you are one of those butt fu**ers that obsess over CoD 24/7 then this is your cake.

    Terrible graphics, lags, outdated engine, stolen content from call of duty and counter strike, bad map design, terrible sound effects and loads of campers. Well this game just gave me cancer, it's even much worse than the new Cod series from Modern Warfare 2 to Black ops 2. Don't play it it's not the time worth.

    Arctic Combat is not dripping with content and it’s crystal clear Webzen has no grasp of the nature of Call of Duty’s success. Their game is just average but can be entertaining at times. [CD-Action 03/2013, p.67]

    When you are not dying, this online action game is actually pretty cool. But you will be dying most of the time. [Jan 2013]
