    DUST 514 is a ground-breaking, innovative game which takes the concepts and principles of EVE Online and applies them to a multiplayer first-person shooter. Gameplay is fantastic and focuses on teamwork as well as carefully building your character to fit your own style of play. The promise of free add-ons and updates assures players that the game can only grow and become better, just as EVE Online has.

    DUST 514 is easily the most in-depth FPS game out there and with an admission fee of $0.00 there is no reason at all for you not to check out what could be your go-to FPS for the next 5-10 years.

    Finally a persistent game where wins and losses matter and mean something! easily one of the most ambitious titles ever on console. needs compartmentalized team communication, bigger battles, more game modes and slightly better framerate in close firefights but the foundation is amazing. If you liked MAG you will LOVE this game. Full Review »
