With an extensive skill tree and free-form class-based system, players will be able to customize their soldier, weapons, and vehicles to match their play-style, as well as the needs of their squad, outfit or empire. Battles can last for days or weeks, so players will need to build alliances and specialized combat outfits to take on long-term strategic and tactical initiatives. With air, ground and seaborne combat, the battles will be larger and more intense than ever. Expand

    Planetside 2 gives you a massive and fun online shooting experience, and it’s completely free. Yes, there are microtransactions, but they are very unobtrusive and do not give nearly enough of an advantage to be labelled “pay to win.”

    It will take a little to get used to the coordinated chaos that is PlanetSide 2. But the more time you spend on Auraxis the more fun you will have. If only the artdesign and engine performance were optimized.

    One of the most interesting things to happen to both massively multiplayer online games and shooters in years, and already a hugely enjoyable game in its own right.

    A totally fresh proposition. [Sept 2015, p.89]

    After a pretty tough starting phase, you'll find a great game with some pretty neat battles and tons of content. The best of all is that it is really free to play.

    Planetside 2 is entertaining, huge and still a work in progress. It’s certainly worth a go, if you have the available time on your side.

    Like so many big games with dozens of complex moving parts, your enjoyment of PlanetSide 2 on the PlayStation 4 rests on how forgiving you are of technical hiccups you would properly expect to be vanquished.

This game requires an investment of time to explore the weapons and vehicles and master each of them to become a good player. It also requires playing and coordinating with others. When you do these things you will find this one game contains the type of gameplay that exists in dozens of others. It's free but if you pay you gain access to fashion accessories. I have had experiences in PS2 that I have had in no other game -- some of the greatest MP experiences I've ever had. There is a learning curve though. Squad up and use your headsets to learn the game, it's no lowest common denominator game like Call of Duty. Expand

    I tried the PC version when it came out at a friend's house (my PC can't handle it), was in the PS4 beta, and finally played the final consoleI tried the PC version when it came out at a friend's house (my PC can't handle it), was in the PS4 beta, and finally played the final console version for a few hours hours. All i can say is that this is my kind of shooter!

    Sure it's not as polished as some 'AAA' shooter out there, but no game offers this level of freedom and scale. I'm also surprised with how well the console handles the big battles. I have experienced a few battles with a few hundred players, and the framerate always looked to be above the 30fps. Impressive, especially considering the beta struggled with 20 or 30 players on screen.

    + Massive scale and player count.
    + Great graphics and performance (for a game of this scale).
    + Nice gameplay and pacing (similar to Battlefield and the opposite to CoD, which is perfect to me).
    + Free to play but not pay to win.

    - The menus are still a bit slow and buggy (nothing compared to the beta, though).
    - It would be nice to see the actual number of players per continent before jumping in.
    - Instant action should take you to the area you are pointing at, instead of being random.

    All in all, i just hope that this game turns popular. I know it's not for everyone, but those who like large scale shooters, and give this game a second, third try, will love it for sure.

    I would give it 8/10 if i had to play for it. 10/10, since it's free and great, even for 'AAA' standards.

    It's pretty confusing for first time players. Most of the map is empty and it's rather hard to find people when you're not spawning onIt's pretty confusing for first time players. Most of the map is empty and it's rather hard to find people when you're not spawning on team-mates or know where the MAIN objective is at. Sometimes it gives you a high priority objective with absolutely no one there. It takes forever to get into a game, but when you finally get the hang of it, it's pretty good for a F2P. Expand
