    Dirty Bomb is off to a great start, offering a blend of fast-paced team-based action that I hadn’t realised I’ve been missing since the glory days of Enemy Territory.

    Dirty Bomb is an addictive game. Even though I was often handed my ass on a platter by gamers with more skill, I was still enjoying myself for much of the time.

    It's a good start to the franchise, with opportunities to expand upon the world there, add some story context and hopefully flesh out the experience further.

    It is fun. A hell of a lot of fun, actually. But the inverse is, unfortunately, true when your team isn’t work together, or you’re being dominated by an opposing team that has its shit together.

    Dirty Bomb is a nice shooter that is a perfect F2P alternative to a lot of the major FPS titles out today. The game is still in beta however, so there are a lot of features to be added and a lot of flaws to buff out. Hope that the devs can fix what needs to be fixed and polish this game to fulfill the potential it shows.

    Acceptable, but could have been so much better. Dirty Bomb is hampered by free-to-play nagging, small maps, and too many uninspiring matches.

    While Brink sits in history as a game that tripped on its path to fame, Dirty Bomb will be fortunate to be remembered at all.

    Dont listen to simpletons that call it pay2win, its not.

    Its more skill based than most modern fps games (meaning its probably too hard for "new generation of gamers").

    Its pretty balanced at the moment.
    While still not pefrect its getting better each patch, cant be said about every free to play game.

You can play your way into having every merc with no trouble at all, just playing and doing all the missions that come every 3 hours. You don't need any loadout past Bronze, those are cosmetic only, plus it's very easy to get the loadouts you want, not to mention you can buy a specific one if you so desire. I have 100 hours in the game and already bought 3 mercs out of 9. Expand

    This isn't quite a full review for Dirty Bomb because it's still in beta and lots is subject to change. This is just a breakdown of how theThis isn't quite a full review for Dirty Bomb because it's still in beta and lots is subject to change. This is just a breakdown of how the game is at this point. Dirty Bomb is a free to play FPS with micro transactions and extremely fast paced team based combat extremely similar to Counter Strike:GO but much faster. With the ability to jump off walls and parkour it lets you find hidden paths and new ways to flank your enemy, But must remember all the different Mercs haddel different and some are better then others when it comes to moving and jumping around. There are quite a few Mercs to choose from ranging from Medics,Engineers,Heavy's and others with the addition of new Mercs every few weeks.Your gun and bonuses are determined by your load-out card, there is 5 different kind of cards ranging from slandered starting cards to cobalt cards that give you some good bonuses. This is where the game can start to feel pay to win, People with the Cobalt or Gold cards seem to have a fairly good advantage over people who could just be starting with default cards and can push some new plays away from the game . Once you get some decent cards then you start to enjoy the matches a bit more.But one thing to remember to is that Mercs rotate like heroes in LoL and if you have a Merc you like a lot you will have to shell out 10 ish dollars or save up quite a bit of in game money to buy it. Once you get a few good cards and get into the play style you will start to enjoy Dirty Bomb but it's a bit of grind at the start so if you looking for a FPS you can just drop into you may want to stick with CS:GO for now. But I'm curious what changes come to the game in the future. Expand
