THE GAME IS DEAD. You'll probably find at least 3 people online at one time. Was really great, but HiRez abandoned this for Tribes, which in turn got abandoned for Smite, which will prolly be left for some other developement.

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.

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.

Its a pretty basic game. The developers need to put a bit more in to it. Looks like they threw something together in order to appease the RPG groups. More Story, More RPG, Less FPS! Puzzles and story that grips players would make this way better.

A very well-done online shooter, featuring balanced classes, killer drones and an ability to jetpack your way to nearly any point of the level. Was somewhat marred by the lack of PvE content, but nowadays PvP is pretty much dead, too.

It's worth a look, if only to see what a marvellous MMO was abandoned in favour of yet another moba.

I started playing when it went f2p, I even paid their one off $15 payment for a couple of small bonuses. Unfortunately I did not get far in to the game before quitting. The pve stuff was really good and liked the sniper rifle. However, shortly after doing just a few pve missions, I got stuck in the pathetic pvp crap where to get further in the game you had to complete the pvp stuff, sadly, this was impossible, because high level players were camping out in the noob area and when you went to do it you would get killed with 1 hit every time. Making progression impossible. If your any good at pvp try the game otherwise just skip it!

Personal Rating: "meh"
Platform: PC
Genre: Free-to-play Multiplayer Third Person Shooter/MMO

Once again the future of mankind is faced with bleak propositions when rival factions emerge from the devastation of a Third Great War. With a new and oppressive government forming from the ashes of past - gamers will get to create characters from different factions all fighting for power in this new political landscape. Sound exciting? Yes in theory and and on paper I am sure it sounded all rather brilliant but not so much when it comes to the actual games execution.

With its dystopian setting I was looking for some fast-paced frantic action to keep me glued to my monitor but the best adjectives I can use to describe Global Agenda is mediocre and boring. Global Agenda has some good ideas stuck amongst the more turgid ones - the ones every single MMO suffers with regardless of how they doll it up - the "fetch 15 of these and the kill me 5 of those" types of quests. In my earlier MMO days I was happily and stupidly comfortable to sit through crap like that but not anymore. It's an utter killjoy for me now.

Dispersed amongst the typical MMO tropes are some genuinely good ideas - such as the co-op and faction pairing quests that actually see you fight other players. After having committed roughly 8hrs to the game I just didn't see the point of continuing forward. Don't get me wrong its a very competently made game and I am sure it has its many fans out there but I am afraid I am just not one of them.

I really am not that crazy on free-to-play games at all and being constantly bombarded by the in-game shop recommending that you purchase this and upgrade that. No thank you! I would rather happily pay a small monthly fee and receive equal quality across the board for all players. The game will require a lot grinding away to get anywhere and quite frankly that is not my idea of fun at all if you decide not to go the purchase item route.

By all means give it a go - its just not something I see anyone sticking with for long periods of time unless they are a) Broke as a poor church mouse or b) Really dedicated or C) Have enough money than God and can afford to waste it on in-game stat booster and whatnot.

***I have given it the thumbs up, since its not something I wish to discourage players not to try out by giving it a thumbs down. I really wish Steam would give us an orange side-ways thumb for something that is average***
