  1. While I originally left Planetside because of it’s balance issues and general stale nature, I’m happy to report that not only have changes in the last few months made the game much quicker on play (really, really good change, in my opinion), but have also tweaked the balance issues pretty damn good.
  2. While I wished the Core Combat expansion was in use by more of the player-base, I'm confident the devs will perform the necessary tweaks to draw more players in, because the idea of the subterranean combat is exciting and Core Combat provides a great foundation.
  3. My biggest gripe is why am I paying 25 bucks or so for an expansion for a game that was just released about 6 months ago AND that I pay a monthly fee for that was promised to have weapons and things added anyway.
  4. Hardcore, platoon-oriented players will definitely enjoy what Core Combat has to offer. [Feb 2004, p.75]
  5. None of these changes fundamentally change the game, though. They are nice additions, sure, but hardly worth $30.
  6. It remains the place for massive (and social) battles, and changes in the wake of Core Combat should bring lapsed players back to the fold. [Mar 2004, p.74]
  7. An amazing expansion in virtually every way. It looks awesome, it sounds fantastic, its design is superb and it has lots of cool details that make it extremely replayable.

    The Best game by far not matter how long you play it for it keeps dragging you back i now hundreds of people that bought it when it came out The Best game by far not matter how long you play it for it keeps dragging you back i now hundreds of people that bought it when it came out and that still play it with the same excitement they had when when they first bought it. If you buy this you should be warned its a game for life and makes all other games rubbish as this doesn't have the best graphics but has the best game play than any other game to date and will have for years to come. :D Full Review »
