I bought this game ages ago, when it was popular. I loved it, still do.

The good
+Its a free to play
+Four classes, Recon which doubles as sniper, The engineer who can either use turrets and shield walls to defend a position or use drones to bring the fight, the medic who can either heal or poisen...so take your pick and then theres the assault who can take ♥♥♥♥ tons of damage due to his personal shields or have a massive offensive arsonal with his granades and minigun or rocket launcher.
+Theres a differance between your armor and your apperance!!!
+At lvl 30 you have the option of solo instances, though they are bloody hard!
+Also at lvl 30 you get access to so many things like Double agent and raids!
+So many more things but im pressed for time and i cant list them all right now

the bad
-Its pretty dead
-I have elite agent and it still takes time for me to lvl so i cant imagine what its like for free players
-The devs are pretty much just focusing on Smite and Tribes so i doubt we will see anything else for this game
-There are still some bugs and latency issues
-All gear after lvl 30 is expensive so you will have to get used to grinding for money and tokens
-In order to get groups you would prolly have to get friends to get the game
-In pve there are some bosses that are just plain annoying to handle

I do recommend this game because it is so great and so underated, I feel like if enough people..maybe a few thousands started picking this up the devs would take notice and bring it up to its feet. So if you have friends and are looking for a good coop game, this is your game

Game is good if you have a few friends to play with you. If anyone is intrested in still playing look for the agency called "YAWN" , most of us are active and do AVA (PVP) and Spec Ops (PVE). They also are saying GA2 is comming out soon though I really don't know if its true.

A case study in how to turn a niche, entertaining, nicely balanced game into a complete shitfest in a year.

01-03-15 EDIT: I take it back, this game is more dead then Tribes. Since Tribes is still playable.

Its as dead as Tribes: Ascend is. The devs dropped this for Tribes: Ascend. Now they dropped that for S.M.I.T.E.

Don't bother installing its a ghosttown.

While it didn't affect my overall judgement, I feel I should point out that I've only ever seen about 10 people on at a time...

- At time of writing, I'm a level 15 medic and I'm going to stop due to lack of investment. After setting out an evil global spanning organisation, we're sitting in the desert dealing with bandits with what feels like no relation to the overall plot.
- The jetpack mechanics seem to increase latency issues as I only ever noticed lag while in the air.
- There's no range indicators so it's hard to tell if I can shoot something (word of advice: get the range enhancer skill)
- Team invites can show up mid battle and take up half the screen (I died a few times to people spamming invites)
- Some of the respawn timers are very short (there's a boss battle early on and the minions at the door will respawn and attack before an appropriate leveled player could take him down. Sometimes them spawning on top of them)

The territory stuff sounded interesting but nothing seems to be running when I queue and I'm not invested enough to stick it out til level 30.

This was an incredibly fun game. It seemed to have limitless potential, but it died. Died so hard I am suprised to see it's even listed, I question whether or not the servers are even up.

Was great... now dead.

As someone who has experienced most aspects of the game, I dare say it was a really fun experience at first. Especially the PvP(which you can't get into nowadays thanks to dead servers, at least not pre lv 30). Unfortunately the game lacked at the PvE aspects. Whilst the dungeons were a lot of fun the first couple of times, they quickly became very tedious and didn't feel like they were worth completing. Overall though, the flight mechanics were great and the game had a lot of potential, if only they created more fun content, especially open zones, I could have seen this game be pretty popular. At the moment however its definitely not worth trying out, as the developement team has abandoned the game.

It's a great game for a first timer. Although the game might be dead, it is still worth a try.

If you have played Firefall before, this is the game that appears to be like Firefall, but a different storyline.

It takes place in the future year 2155, and you have been disconnected by a machine that enemies tried to destroy and kill you. You escape to Dome City, which is the home to your new start of life.

Overall, gameplay is very nice and it's not frustrating.

8/10

In short, I wouldnt get your hopes up, even tribes ascend; their RECENT game as of a year ago has been abandoned in favor of, "SMITE proving more successful than Tribes" -PCGames
Its a pretty ugly pattern even just watching from my satellite armchair or whatever. I remember vividly when GA First went free and how excited the devs were, "We're making way more money!" they cheered as I sat in PvP queue for 30 minutes, their programmers pushing another update back.
"This is way better than our old model" At the time I was happy, this meant a game I loved would be able to stay up longer because the company was financially sound for a bit longer. Maybe even long enough to join a PvP match as Recon

Fast forward to tribes ascend, a game of which its launch build I wouldve paid for, 20 or 30 dollars. Started free to play, thats fine. Cant fault a company for knowing on which foot to start-- Go free to play after mandatory purchase and youve just pissed off all the people who actually paid for your product.
After a while I noticed that most updates included some sort of bonus only available through your wallet, effectively roping off alternative gameplay styles until you grind the predesignated ones for a month or so. Sooner than I could say shazbot, Tribes too was dead.

The year is 2014, games like League of Legends and DoTA2 are and have been making embarrasing amounts of money (League moreso than dota, pushing mandatory purchases for certain items and characters, higher comp payouts, etc), so HiRez makes SMITE.
Now call me cynical, or jaded, or pessimistic (Please, its the only way i can get off), but that too is another desperate money grab by a company that will make their return and ditch yet another game.

There is no hope for GA, theres no hope for Tribes. If people had any sense, they wouldnt get invested in smite either because its just another step in HiRez' godzilla-inspired business model.

Give it a shallow burial, move on. Because thats what HiRez have done.

To whom it may concerns

GA – is like an ex-girlfriend. Fun memories, but I am not calling that number. I played 800+ hours in GA.
You do not know marketing!
You don’t have a way to receive feedback from smart players who test limits and capable of objective review.
Servers are not populated by new players, they are populated by “veterans” who keep playing the game after 10 hours of gameplay. You did bother to ask us if we cool with you PVP map filter that extended queue by 5 minutes, soon after by 15 minutes, as soon as you had your PVP queue at 20+ minutes at peak hours - I uninstalled the game.
Global Agenda 2 will have same result, if you will mess it up same way. I know this because you do not hear us, how can you work it out if you do not talk to us.

Q, Hello, this is GA, what did you like about our game?
A. Well it's about time
Multiple difficulty levels of raid for newbies and drunk vets
Double Agent is too much fun
Pain gun is an epic weapon I refuse to play any GA without it.
Don’t you dare filtering the damn PVP queue with map and type options it killed every game on Earth, and fire the person who thinks it is a good idea.
Q. Anything else you want to add.
A. How did you get my number?
