  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. 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.
  3. None of these changes fundamentally change the game, though. They are nice additions, sure, but hardly worth $30.
  4. While some are more interesting than others, in practice, Core Combat's new additions don't seem to add much to PlanetSide.
  5. There's nothing actually wrong with Core Combat, but as it fails to offer a significant improvement over and above the original game itself, then there is no reason to recommend buying it.
  6. Coercing people to buy Core Combat so they can get more-potent weaponry seems shady. This expansion should cost a lot less - or be free. [Feb 2004, p.76]
  7. The game brought nothing really useful to PlanetSide, and all of the issues that needed to be dealt with were not. SOE continues to willingly avoid those issues...One of the poorest choices on the gaming market to buy.

    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 Expand
