Even though I only have about 20 hours (at the moment) on this game, I must say this is one of the best f2p fps on Steam in my opinion. Though there is the occasional hacker and the game is sort of dead on some game modes, you can have hours of fun on this game

Aeria is one of the most anti-consumer company there is out there.

Shortly after they got the game, they removed the ability to buy permanent guns and instead forced players to rent the weapons for at minimum, 7 days. They claimed that this would level the playing field in the battle of newbies vs. veterans. Obviously, this was a blatant lie, as veterans simply kept the permanent weapons they already had, and newbies were stuck with either using premium currency to buy special permanent weapons or grinding to rent a viable weapon; furthering the disparity between weapon inventories in regards to experience.

Players left and eventually they ended that ♥♥♥♥♥♥ practice, but we had already seen what they thought of us. I had played this game as much as Skyrim, but there was no point if I couldn't play with those that had left.

TL:DR: Stay away from this game.

Here's a little story:
Back in 2009, a little game named Alliance of Valiant Arms came out. The ad I saw on TV mentioned that I didn't need a great PC to run it and it had amazing graphics (close to Modern Warfare 2 graphics.). I've played it, loved it, made a lot of friends. The game was great.

However, there was a small problem. The publishers never gave a ♥♥♥♥. The original publisher, ijji, tried to control the hacking situation (and failed), but they still kept the game Free2Play and not Pay2Win.

Fast forward a few years, Aeria Games is the new publisher. If you know Aeria Games, you know how ♥♥♥♥ed you are if you play their games. Aeria is now trying to milk as much money as they can from the players (which they call Customers and not Players). They removed the Key Features of the game: the graphics were downgraged (so the game kinda looks like ♥♥♥♥ now), they removed some ingame currencies (and replaced them with real money currencies), they downgraded the servers, they somehow made the game lag on every computer (even if you've got 4 GTX 1080 TI's, you won't run it without constant FPS drops) and they let the Hacking situation explode (note that the influx of cheaters was when they removed the key features of the game, it was the player's way to protest).

This was a great game, I've invested around 2000 hours on multiple accounts, and it's sad to see how the game was brutally murdered by a company that doesn't care about it.
This game will soon join the graveyard of games that Aeria Games bought, exploited and closed.

Warning: this review has been re-uploaded intentionally to not only update new info, but to remove previous ratings due to the review's harsh judgement. I will be reviewing this on my own opinions, although some other opinions are quite the same as mine. Also, I have only played this game for at least a several hours, and has been a long time since then. As a result, the review may not be accurate. Regardless, you've been warned.

A.V.A - Alliance of Valiant Arms is a First-Person Shooter where you choose from one of many classes and..well..kill people. Sound familiar? If many answered Call of Duty, Team Fortress 2, or even Counter Strike, you'd likely be here because it looked cool and all. "Not all is what it seems."

Okay, before we dip ourselves into the bad parts of this pool, let's go over the good things I have to say of the game.

+ Despite me not liking the artwork this game displays on the store or even the logo, the graphics in this game are pretty good, if not decent. And I must say a lot of effort was put into making the game look nice.

+ The game functions well, and I haven't suffered a single crash.

+ Hackers about? Not likely. Despite all what people said about "this game is infested with lifeless hackers!", I am still having a legitimate experience without suffering any ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t such as aimbots, godmode, or any cheats actually. So either they all were ♥♥♥♥♥♥ at some snipers doing some 360 no-scopes, or just wanted to start some rumors on this already down-hill of a game. So in short, not many hackers. That's a plus.

Now, let's list some of the major issues this game has.

- This game is very Pay-to-Play influenced. Instead of selling skins and all, there are actual weapons being sold as micro-transactions which aren't micro at all. Do you expect me to pay 50$ for a single pack of weapons from a Free-to-Play game? No, I wouldn't. It's worse as it encourages people to put money into the game, most recently with the "Welcome Pack 2016" update.

- The next problem is one people always complain about. People from Team Fortress 2 flock to this game in order to obtain a Spy knife reskin known as "The Black Rose", a good looking one at that, and was pretty cool before Tough Break came along. To obtain this knife, you simply had to get an achievement in-game. Simple, right? Well, this is where the second flaw comes into play. For some reason..and I mean for some reason, the developers thought it was a good idea to prevent you from obtaining any achievements until you beat the entire tutorial. You know what that means? You have to sit through an hour or two learning of the game's way of school. And no, not just the basic gameplay. I literally mean everything. Only then are you qualified to obtain achievements and obtain "The Black Rose". At least, in my experience. When I completed my first round, nothing. However as soon as a beat the tutorial completely, bang! Three achievements, only one was the tutorial while the other three was from that previous match. As of me last playing in early 2015, there has yet to be a fix for it other than playing the tutorial like intended.

- The holy grail to it all is the game's installment. It's files are quite..cruel to other files. In the game's installment, an "anti-cheat" program is installed that instantly deletes any and all files that the program finds either interfering with the game, and/or because it can. Most cases it was because it could. Why? My Team Fortress 2 graphics looked like they came straight from a missing textured mess from Garry's Mod, and I had to re-install the entire game to fix it. Again, this was in my experience. Just uninstall A.V.A once you get what you want from it.

Now with all the major issues out of the way, let's tackle the lesser problem I have with the game.

* The game when launched by steam, launches it's own launcher. It's a small gripe I have. There isn't any real settings to change in said launcher last time I launched it besides maybe screen sizes or fullscreen toggle.


Overall, I don't really like this game. While this is a bad game, it isn't that bad as people say. The gameplay is decent and the graphics look decent. Just everything is decently good, until the encouragement of "Pay-to-Play" and bad design choices on terms of coding that made this game fall to the mixed status it is in now.
