    Guns of Icarus is an outstanding example of how a kickstarter project can be the new revolution of PC gaming. The skirmish mode is a brilliant teamplay/deathmatch battle arena and we are waiting for the promising adventure mode.

I started it up assuming it was going to work but it kept trying to connect to the server. Then I troubleshooted. I turned of Windows Firewall, opened the right UDP ports, re-installed the game, and I tried to get in the lobby probably 15 times overall. I looked on the forums. I sent an email to the developers about it (who care about their customers and respond to everyone) but they were unable to help me. They wanted me to do a bunch of stuff in order to see what the problem could be. I have never actually played the game and it has caused me at least an hour of trouble. I don't have ANY time for that, and I never want to set foot on a game made by these people ever again. A game needs to work- and this game won't. Unacceptable. This game deserves my zero star rating. Full Review »

    Its not that goi isn't a fun game or doesn't try, it is simply that the developers do not care about or play their own game. Patches areIts not that goi isn't a fun game or doesn't try, it is simply that the developers do not care about or play their own game. Patches are consistently loaded with bugs and broken features or even worse intentionally remove well beloved and used features, the developers are openly semi-hostile to all nearly all input from the playerbase regarding their new issues (aka "working as intended- the crash when you do X is supposed to prevent you from getting bored with playing the game uninterupted.")

    tldr; I don't regret buying the game but it absolutely does not live up to its potential

The tutorials teach you the bare minimumA game that could have been great but ruined by the learning curve and incredibly rude player base. The tutorials teach you the bare minimum with no information about how the different matches work. The player base must be the second rudest I've come across (beaten only by Eve Online.) People yell at you for repairing things, for not repairing things, for buffing things, for not buffing things. I've had strings of profanity thrown at me for daring to buff a gun that someone was using. Not at all the welcome a person on their 1st or 2nd match needs.

    Appearance wise, the game is nice enough and has some scenic moments. The graphics clip often and the sound can skip when too much is going on.

    In short the game is not release worthy and not welcoming to new players. Keep away.
