From what I'm hearing the gameplay is very fluid and easy to jump into, but not easily mastered like you would come to expect from a game where that is said. The wide range of what you can customize to your every need and personal preference is refreshing, and the perk system is different from most games in that they aren't just for one class, and more than a few are for general gameplay instead of a simple upgrade.

Oh yeah, and jumping around as a light class and sabotaging the other team is very fun.

Unfortunately for me, I'm short on cash as usual, so I'm stuck between either this or Portal 2. It's going to be a very hard decision.

Reviews are out.

IGN gave it a 6.0, other's have been slightly nicer, but average on Metacritic is 7.2 I think.

General complaints are:

Repetition.
Lack of distinguishing between classes.
Many good ideas, but poorly implemented.

Imagine a group of people who are all blind, deaf and slightly demented and suddenly someone in the crowd asks, "What are we to do?"... The only possible answer is, "Look for a cure". Until you are cured, there is nothing you can do.

GT gave it an 8. Although that felt fairly unconvincing to me, based on their review video |8

I think the game needs some time to patch out some of its flaws. Most of the flaws lay more with things that can be fixed with some good ol' patching.

I've preordered the game some time ago but I was really looking forward playing it today but ffs because I was in a carcrash about a week ago I can't be at home playing |8 really hoping the game will be as good as I've hoped. Maybe I get lucky and I'll be able to play it in a few days... I hope... Any personal experiences so far?


Ok So after a REALLY quick test, I have to say I like it. Gonna take some time to get used to it, but the gameplay is nice and fast and it reminds me of good old W:ET. Really looking forward to getting some real gametime clocked and learning all the maps and getting my rank abit higher.
