Nov 24, 201295Be warned though, this is a very addictive game, and it could spoil your previous favourite shooter with its incredible sense of scale. It's astonishing to see a free to play game deliver such a polished package, that also breaks new technological boundaries.
Dec 6, 201270PlanetSide 2 is a hard game to sum up. It's a beautiful, solidly built shooter that presents large-scale conflict like nobody else in the business. The rest of the game's enjoyment, however, is entirely up to you. If you can dedicate the time to learning the systems, decoding the cumbersome UI, and finding a group of people that you like playing with, PlanetSide 2 will be a blast.
10Great game. Has some issues including cluttered visuals, latency issue, and some player distribution trouble between areas of the map. These are minor complaints in my eyes though. Over all you can always find a good fight if you look hard enough. It is easy to learn, looks great, and isn't a grind Wow clone. What more do you want from an MMO.… Expand
The game is really fun but, but it is far from perfect.. It needs more ways to get into combat faster. I do understand that you can spawn vehicles, and being on big maps is part of the fun, seriously. The size isn't the problem. There also should be a variety of gametypes instead of going around and capturing bases. The level design is pretty good. The game is more fun IMO if you are on the losing side. You see enemies more frequent and it gets pretty fast paced when you charge out of your base and attack the enemy.
The shooting mechanics are excellent in PlanetSide 2. I wanted to give it an 8.5)
If I were to rate this on shotting mechanics, it would have a 9/10… Expand
Ok as much as i'd love to sing planetside2's praised there are certain elements that have to be addressed. First lets start with the positives
-Huge scale maps
-Actual point in snipers as maps are so huge
-Amazing fun with friends
-When the battle gets going IT GETS GOING
-There's no real tutorial, a friend of mine had to teach me the ropes
-Gun prices are extortionate
- Requires a beefy rig to run on anything more than medium
- Gun balancing is poor, for example the Terran republic first sniper takes 3 body shots or 2 head shots. a new conglomerate sniper will kill in 1 clean body shot.
- Hackers. They aren't there much but when they are you know about it.
- On your own can get very boring.… Expand
0The cheaters are out of control. The game is pretty boring. Every battle not at The Crown ends up being the more populated faction spawn room camping the less populated faction. There is little to no metagame. There is no reason to really play this game for more than a week or two. I like to call this a FTP throwaway game. Try it, toss it, go onto the next FTP game.… Expand
