Steam just cycled this into my 'check out' queue, and I can't believe it.

This game has not been updated since 2012. The company has no customer support, no working forum or updated social media, yet they will still process your credit card. They do not police hackers, which the game is rife with. I encourage everyone to report this product as fraudulent and get it off Steam. It is a black-mark against the platform, and should not be represented.

I used to play this game.. Until hackers took over. And it became Pay 2 Win. Seriously, back before i even got on steam this game had me loving the everliving s**t out of it. THEN it tanked. Crappy servers, as in no one online when i logged in, multiple times. And it was thoroughly unsatisfying with the whole pay2win scenario. I wouldn't recommend playing this game anymore, unless you have a time machine so you can go back to 2012 and play it when it was actually relevant.

So sorry for all you who downloaded this game at this point. IT IS NOW EPIC CRAP!!

+You appreciate your other games more, knowing that it could always be worse as you could be playing this game.
+Makes Call of Duty Ghosts look almost good*
+The uninstall process is in very entertaining

-The game is not ran through Steam so the hackers cannot be banned as they are not using their Steam accounts
-Lag (not that often, but when it does happen...)
-Death simulator
-Has absolutely no storyline
-Unbalanced weaponry
-More hackers
-Abysmal texturing
-The gameplay is awful
-hit detction brought to you by Stevie Wonder
-You get 5XP if you can kill someone, but get 500XP for capturing a flag
-Terrible weapon sounds and general audio
-Every gun in the same type has the exact same reload animation
-There is no weapon swap animation
-Game is not fair to new players
-Even more hackers
-The game mixes 1st and 3rd person gameplay, A good idea, but absolutely crap
-No game updates
-Randomly placed indestructible turrets, that can shoot across the map and kill you to make sure you get more deaths than kills
-Devs don't respond to emails
-Only about 10 players on the game at any one time
-Can't strafe while aiming or running
-Guess what... MORE HACKERS!!!
-Spawn camping
-it is a Pay2Win game, and an expensive one too
-you have to spend your in game cash on weapons and attachments (which you can only borrow)
-I could make a better soundtrack
-You have to buy a melee weapon
-The game is in no way "tactical", only run out of your spawn and die
-No uninstall button in-game
-There are better free games on steam
-A waste of time
-Simulates a cactus being inserted up your ♥♥♥♥ very well
-You have also have to pay $20/£15 to host a server
-And last but not least... Hackers

If you want to play a game with more hackers than Anonymous, don't waste your time reading this review, just download it. If you have a brain, Don't waste your time. Report game as spam and innapropriate. Feel like I want a refund.

This is a game that I thought would be great until I discovered it was created by the same people that made Infestation, which was War Z before the name change. This is completely a 100% pay to play AND pay to win game as you cannot buy any kind of weapon or gear nor open boxes without paying real money for the game. There are crates you can open with GP but the reward is so miniscule that it isn't even worth it. After playing this game you can have a complete idea of how horrendous and terrible Infestation is, or if you played Infestation and then played this then you can see why they made Infestation so horrible.

Animations are mediocre, textures are very bland, models of characters makes Half Life 2 look like a masterpiece for graphics (don't get me wrong btw, HL2 is an amazing game but their graphics are back in the 2000s), and overall this game is broken since there is no such thing as an anti-hack. Oh, I forgot to mention this game is also infested with hackers and the player base is under 50 making Call of Duty Ghosts look like a popular game (which I still believe is a horrendous game in its state).

The only positive thing I can even remotely say about this game is the fact that you have the option before you spawn each time whether you want to play 1st person or 3rd person.

Graphics: 4/10
Sounds: 3/10
Animation: 3/10
Gameplay: 1/10

Overall: 2.75/10

Avoid this game at all costs unless you have money to spare and want a game that is just as bland and boring as Infestation.

Brutal Pay-2-Win system, and the devs left it years ago. Please take this off Steam ASAP.

This game USED to be very good, back in 2012 or so - very little pay to win, next to no hackers, and plenty of near-full servers with decent balance and highly customizable weapons.

These days though? Rubbish. Absolute rubbish. It's a wonder the servers are even still running.

Its a fun game to play but over run with hakers who make it impossible to level up and get better weapons. No moderators exist so it kinda sucks

Don't let my lack of time played fool you, I played this when it was Merc Inc in beta. It used to be a little goofier on animations and such, and I think only third person, but it was fun and it had a decent community and group of players. Last time I was on, it was one shot ( pay to win ) snipe fest. However, when people weren't using an aimbot, you could usually get in and take those people out with a pistol which was fun.

Of course, you had to get passed the shotgun spammers or submachine guns that had more range than assault rifles... but hey, free game.

Genuinely, I think this is a good game. For those of you who saw the 'mixed' rating on this game, here are some first hand pros and cons I encountered during only one match of the game.


o It is very good considering it is a free game.
o Good inventory system.
o No lag.
o Nice amount of maps.
o Creativity with maps.
o Detailed descriptions of pretty much everything.
o Intense gameplay, even if 2v2 matches on small maps.


o Hackers.
o Weird movement system.
o Expiring date on items

Thats about it.
All the haters out there on this game, just think.
Its free, stop complaining.
