The Gameplay is a mix bag, i spend more than 30 hours into the game and for every battle my team won, i lose three because of balance issues the game have, in the game you have two types of currency, AUR (Real Money) and ISK (virtual Money), the reason why the developers said that this game was not a "Pay to Win" was because with AUR you can only brought different skinned Tier 2 and 3 weapons and vehicles sets (The Vehicle,His Gun and different Skin), however. with AUR you can also buy temporal XP and ISK Boosters that multipliers the amount of Money and XP you gain after a battle.
The Game has a Skill tree system that you upgrades with XP, however, you need ISK to unlock most of the Upgrades, the Skill Tree is very specific in what you want to upgrade, it can be from your general stats to the damages certain type of weapons can cause and his Magazine limit, is very specific but annoying since the upgrades can get very expensive to unlock or to upgrade, you will find yourself saving XP and Money to get the ability to use Tier 2 and 3 weapons and later Dropsuits.
But even after all, you will find some entertaiment in DUST 514, plus if you have friends or a Guild you can have a lot of fun playing this PS3 Free-to-Play.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Jun 24, 2014Far Cry 3 is a very fun but badly designed game, the game was advertised as a First Person Shooter with survival elements but after you playFar Cry 3 is a very fun but badly designed game, the game was advertised as a First Person Shooter with survival elements but after you play the game, you notices the broken design choices, it obvious that Ubisoft dumb down the game for more casual players from Call of Duty and Far Cry 2 haters.
The Broken design choices comes in the ability to Fast-Travel and the Machine Shops, to put it simpler, in the Game you have to capture enemy outposts to unlock new Sidequest and a Fast-Travel point, also, in every Fast-Travel point there is a Machine that allows you to buy and change your weapons, however, in the game there are some isolated shops on the islands, and they have no reason to exist since you can Fast-Travel to an Captured Outpost and Change/Buy your weapons there, the other thing is the amount of details you never see since you re always fast traveling from one point to another like seeing Rebel Islanders (The Rakyat) partying and shooting to the air, seeing Islanders (you can save) that are about to be executed by Pirates/Mercenaries and some other minor random events you never see because of the fast-travel.
The Characters and Story are there but varely, Jason s friends and the Doctor appears and disappears from the Story without rime or reason, Vaas, the guy in the Cover of the game, only appears a few times and later confusinly dies (one of the developer had to confirm that he died) and theres all this talk about the indiscriminate killing of Islanders and the war the Rakyat rages against both the Pirates and Mercenaries but you never see a skirmish between the factions except for one mission in the game.
Overall, since this is the PS3 version, the game will work fine for most of the time until you try the Map Editor and the Multiplayer, The Map Editor will cause an permanent framerate drop on the single player until you decide to restart the game and the Multiplayer sometimes will get stuck in the Map loading screen for no apparent reason.… Expand
