Third person MOBA or ARTS is what SMNC is. Unlike the original MNC, SMNC has decided to focus on the MOBA aspects of the first game. Towers are now fixed, player kills mean a lot less and good teamwork is what it takes to win.
SMNC isnt MNC, and it seems many expect it to be just like the original, a shooter with MOBA aspects tacked of. The reality though is that SMNC is a MOBA with shooter aspects tacked on. It is a game that you will enjoy if you play well with a team that coordinates well, or hate if you try to play like rambo.
Prices of skins and such seem a bit high, but really aren't that bad considering SMNC is F2P and is pay 2 pretty rather than pay2win like some of the newer F2P games on the market.
Good gameplay balance is definitely more important that cheap skins IMO.
The rules have changed, and if you like MOBA type games and shooters, have a look at SMNC.
If you are a hardcore FPS player who cannot do anything other than rambo and whine when you can't 360 noscope, don't even bother.… Expand

The game itself improves on the gameplay of portal and valve manages to cram a huge amount of back story into a series that previously had none.
The game is quite a bit longer than portal and the co-op is a nice addition but being a "puzzle"game it doesn't have that much replay value. Being that this is a single player focused game, valve really should have bundled something with it to make it more worthwhile over the long run, maybe a competitive multiplayer mode of some sort.
Graphics wise, portal 2 isnt nearly as shiny as some other games on the market, but who cares,? The game is well polished, looks pretty good and will run at high framerates even on relatively dated hardware.
Oh and all the trolls who have been writing low reviews should shut up, the "DLC" is a bunch of OPTIONAL skins and emotes that are not required. If you require non essential skins and emotes to play portal 2, you need help, cause you compulsively spend money for no reason.
DLC system is no different from TF2, actually IMO is better cause you cant buy weapons or anything that changes your stats!… Expand
