I bought this game in sept 2014, and since then i was never able to play with anyone (hence the zero achievements). This game is multiplayer only and it's dead. There's no way to play with bots, so the game is quite useless. Too bad because i saw the videos and i'd love to play. Looks very fun.

This game was the best source of multiplayer craziness that I long for in a game. It's fast-paced insanity with old references that harken back to aged action movies like Terminator or the old character tropes like: "Cop that eats donuts and fights to avenge his partner" to "Scientist that experimented on himself, and fights to control his augmented body."

All the characters have a special ability and plenty of personality to make them feel fresh... (However some abilities are rather cheap) and there are plenty of different guns like pistols, snipers, rocket launchers, throwing knives, even swords! Still not enough tools of destruction? Well you can bash someone's head in with a prop you found on the level! See that pickaxe stuck in the wall? TAKE IT AND SLICE SOMEONE IN HALF WITH ONE CLEAN SWING! See that little cross with Jesus on it? PUNISH THE NONBELIEVERS! See that pillow on the couch? KILL THEM WITH THE ♥♥♥♥ING PILLOW

What's that? You wanna buy this game? Well then, I just have to say--

Please don't.

No, really don't. It's a waste. Look, I know I just went on briefly about how I like the game, hell I've spent quite some time in it, and every 2 days I check the game news to see if they've announced anything because I loved it so much. But it's dead. Like... SUPER dead. Nobody plays this game, and if someone IS playing, they're so good it isn't even funny. It's just sad that they've spend so much time being good at a dead game.

I still think this is the best multiplayer action game ever, but unfortunately it's dead. And Arrowhead pulled their support from the game, so it's gone for good. Stay away from this game.
