  • Summary: Purge is an online-only computer game. It is a hybrid First-Person-Shooter / Role-Playing-Game set in the near future accounting a war between the diametrically opposed forces of science-fiction (the Order) and fantasy (the Chosen). Technology versus magic. Science versus religion. [Freeform Interactive] Expand

  1. Purge, despite not having the best graphics ever, is chock full 'o' fun... If you have the means, than by all means, pick it up. It might be what TFC junkies need to hold them over until the big one arrives.
  2. If you’ve got $30.00 (online play is free by the way) and can handle some old school graphics and sound and deal with some learning pains and aggravation … you’ll probably have fun.
  3. Purge is an average game and as such there really isn't much of an online community despite the game being out for over a month. It's just not catching on.
  4. Purge still offers gameplay that is fairly unique. Unfortunately, balance issues, poor level design, and a lack of online players keep it from fully realizing its potential.
  5. those looking for the next "Ghost Recon," "Battlefield 1942," or "Half Life" "killer" will be in for a mighty letdown.
  6. You will be gravely disappointed if you drop some well earned cash for Purge. Good for a few fleeting moments of mayhem and little else, Purge was a disappointment to the extreme.

    It doesn't help matters when Purge looks as bad as it does. It's an ugly little game. The maps are genuinely uninteresting, with far too many forced corridors designed to help you set up choke points.

    The most original FPS I've seen in the last 3 years. Definite innovation.

    This game is very fun and entertaining. The developers are always listening to what the consumers want and produces monthly add-ons and tweaks on their patches according to consumers' request. Expand

    Purge is very fun, especially now they released they expansion pack Purge Jihad. I play it a few hours after work most days to level my characters.

    This game is very frustrating. I don't recommend getting it at all. Honestly, just don't. It's horrible. Stop it. It's SO FRUSTRATING. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Expand
