  • Summary: Global Agenda is a massively multi-player action game set in 22nd Earth, a 'spy-fi' world of advanced technology and player-driven conflict. In the wake of severe global disaster, the political face of 22nd century earth has changed and player-created factions scheme against each other for power. Traditional full-scale wars a thing of the past, factions must rely on covert agencies, teams of elite special operatives able to seize and defend key facilities. The future of humanity is their battleground, where knowledge is power, technology is a race, and everyone has an agenda. [Hi-Rez Studios] Expand

  1. Global Agenda's developers Hi-Rez Studios have wisely mixed together MMORPG elements with FPS action resulting in an amazing online experience, which reaches its apex in the Conquest mode. It is not perfect, it must be said, but we've enjoyed it a lot!
  2. Global Agenda isn't a perfect game but there is a awful lot of potential in this well put together debut from Hi-Rez. They should also be applauded for utilizing a system that allowed optional subscription service and I hope to see this adopted by more developers and publishers in the future.
  3. Hi-Rez has created a fast paces fun FPS that has successfully bridged the gap between MMO and shooter. Well worth a look.
  4. It's lots of fun as a straight team-based shooter, but the MMO side of things needs polish to make it more accessible. [Apr 2010, p.100]
  5. One last kick to the armor-shielded gut: If you are currently playing the game using a trial version you downloaded prior to it being made unavailable, be warned that in-game voice chat may now be interrupted by audio ads-a stinky (though gutsy) move to "encourage" subscriptions.
  6. It's a shooter without eloquence or crunch, an MMO without content or personality, and as an experimental combination of the two it's missing ambition.
  7. Global Agenda's novel take on class-based combat has the potential to be exciting, but drudgery and other issues present serious obstacles to your enjoyment.

    This is a great game. I started playing when it went Free to play on steam as many people did and I ended up buying the "elite" version just a few days later. Its great because you get a unlimited and (mostly) unrestricted trial basically, the only restrictions are you cant trade (to prevent gold / item farming). The game is awesome, the graphics are great, the mechanics of flying with a jet pack in combat is great. Some people dont like the only other freely travel zone besides the "Dome" is the desert with mish that bring you from lvl 5-18 (out of 50). Honestly the things it has you do in the desert is really just the most elaborate tutorial ever! It makes you learn how to play your class solo before you go jump into PVP where it really matters. After the desert you can still do PVE mish in instances with 4 other people you go through the lvl and kill a boss and get rewards. Free players get no loot but get tokens, coins, and exp. Elite players (a one time $14 fee) get a item, double xp, double coins, and double tokens. So it speeds it up alot but you are never really required to get it. I got it because it is inexpensive and it makes the lvling go much faster and that to me is enjoyable. But what makes this game different is it has PVP starting at lvl 10 which, if your good at it (or score well), will level you faster than PVE matches. So while your enjoying the end game reward of PVP you are also leveling up to the max lvl 50. The only difference between a lvl 30 and 50 player is the kind of equipment you can equip. between level 1 and 30 you get 13 skill points and once you hit 30 your player is as "buffed" as it can be besides from armor. Overall its a great game that holds my interest since its basically all PVP. The PVP is almost EXACTLY that same as TF2 except it is much deeper. TF2 was very easy and shallow, this game is deeper, it has 100% more strategy, and for me more incentive to play. Think of TF2, better looking, with harder PVP, more maps and options, and that in between matches you get to walk around, talk to other ppl, buy and sell items (from NPC or other players if your elite) dye your armor, and just customize your play style.

    This is the best pvp shooter ever made. Sadly it was HiRez' first game and they wanted to try to make it an mmo. Regardless, nothing can take away from the skill, the speed, the pure fun of 10v10 combat. The maps are great, the balance is decent...an even more pvp-centric GA 2 would put all other class-based shooters to shame, TF2 included. Expand

    The Game is Very good, They need to increase the world size and fix some nicks and nacks. It would be extremely wise to add more classes and weapons, it seems to dull at the momment with the 4 arch types. Expand

    Global Agenda offers great gameplay and alot of nice class based PvP.The PvE is quite okay too but didnt motivate me much.I went to the level cap(lvl50) almost only through PvP and really enjoyed it that there was no PvE grind needed.The PvP missions through the matchmaking award you all the epic items you need and also give very decent exp.
    The only problems i saw in this game were the poorly optimized engine which resulted in an surprisingly high need of hardware power for an unreal 3 engine game and the low user numbers which resulted in long waiting times in the matchmaking queue

    I think GA is a good Free to Play game. Graphics, sounds okay, some similar missions, but the missions are also okay. Only have 3 places, Dome city, where you can take a rest, buy weapons, gears and 2 leveling zone, where you can accept and completing missions. The 1-20 lvl are okay, but when you reach 20 lvl, you can only do the similar pve missions, for ex. defend terminus station, defend newtopia, defend solar farm, escape with bolonov and i didn't really liked this. You need to wait long time for the mercenary pvp matches. I reached lvl 25 and i uninstalled. If you like to do the similar pve and pvp missions with a long waiting time, than this is your game.

    One point for each day that the game held my interest. Maybe I just didn't get it? Or is it possible that it's because it plays just like every other MMO on the market? A whole heap of wasted potential. Expand
