I've played this game for 7 months now and I love it to the bottom of my steampunk heart. I can't ask for a more involving airship game that truly makes you feel a part of the team. The sense of self-awareness you get after just playing for an hour makes you feel important and needed. And you are, especially when there's the broadside of a Galleon facing you! Pilot your airship, shoot your guns, and repair your beauty of an airship, because you're gonna be wanting back up soon!PUp to four people per ship and 4 ships per team! Several different ships to choose from and many varieties of weapons and strategies to help you win!

One the best multiplayer experiences I've had on Steam. Great game to play with friends or strangers. I truly love that any match of the game can be both competitive and cooperative at the same time. If you get the game, PLAY THE TUTORIAL. That will definitely give you an edge against any other schmuck that bought the game and immediately jumped into a match. That being said, there are some high level players that will kick your ♥♥♥ if you don't have good team work. But, in the end that doesn't matter because losing is still fun. 8/10

I'll be honest, this game sucks ******* and **** when it comes to pace of updating/contentwise.
But here is the catch, this game is your most entertaining teambuilding game and has the best community that is all surrounded by epic comments on eachothers obsessions for GUNS OMG GUNS YES! among other things.

The community is seriously nice and even the hardcore players can crack a smile on discussions surrounding Z-listed celebs and what not. You kill fabulous and die fabulous (seriously.. check fireworks) and for the oldtimers there is a free theme (on your sexy ships) where CAKE and RAINBOWS! are normal <3

Never forget this game, new DLC coming soon <3 we need to get back into this everyone we need more players!

I'm updating my review based on the experiences I've had with the Alliance Alpha

As I have said before this game is so much fun and I've easily spent so much of my time on this game. This game doesn't rely on a great internet connection or a godly gaming pc to run it. It's no Crysis 3 in terms of graphics but this game is still beautiful nontheless. Gameplay wise, this game is beyond any other in terms of gameplay, it's so fun, the community is great besides the one or two bad apples you may encounter, and the game is cheap! it's not a lot at all compared to other games.

Now let's talk about the Alliance DLC, I myself have only played one match of the Alliance Alpha and all I have to say is; MOM HOLY ♥♥♥♥!!!!!!!!! it's so much fun and can be very intense if you're into that, it's like a whole new game, an adventure mode to the game rather than just deathmatch in the base game, your clan fighs other clans over land, resources, etc. All in all, I strongly recommend this game and felt it AND the Alliance DLC is worth way more than what the current price is.

This is the best co-op experience I have ever had. In this game, you are on a steampunk airship with three other people and you have to work together to stay alive as well as take down other airships that want to permanently ground you. This game rewards coordination and cooperation not just with the crew of the ship you are on but also, if you are the captain of the ship, with the other ships on your team.

Outside of the game or while you’re waiting for a lobby to fill up, you will have plenty of things to do while you wait like check your achievement progress, build and customize the ship you will bring if you are in the position of ship captain, and customize your character with a steadily growing list of things that you unlock.

On the ship you can be one of three classes that each have a job on the ship. You can have at least one piece of equipment from each class and technically you can do any of the other jobs if the situation calls for it but everyone brings three pieces of equipment from their own class that makes them better at that job.

The engineer makes sure your ship stays in one piece an in the air. You primarily repair damaged or destroyed parts and put out fires using a variety of tools at your disposal. You also have the ability to sprint for a short time to quickly get to that pesky hull that just went down again.

The gunner brings the pain to enemy ships. They can bring three types of ammunition that each have their own ups and downs that benefit different types of guns. You also can quickly reload a weapon you’re on.

The pilot, which is normally the captain, navigates the ship through the map, lines up the gunner’s shots, and moves to try to give your engineers enough time to repair the damage you have inevitably taken. They can bring special charms and tools to perform special maneuvers such as quick turns or smoke clouds even though most of them tend to damage the ship in some way they can really give your ship the extra edge.

There are a few things you should know about this game though.

First off it has a very steep learning curve. The tutorial gives you the basic controls but there are so many tools, guns, and ships that figuring everything out is a real challenge for new players so asking for help and directions early on is a good thing to do.

Second you are probably going to want a microphone. While you can play without it, not having it severely handicaps you and your ability to coordinate with other captains and crew.

Finally, as of this review, the number of people playing this game is really small. It’s such a problem that I would suggest using this site ( ) so you can play it when there are a fair number of people playing. (about 150 finds me a game and it’s easier if you play with friends).

Overall, if you are looking for a real original and great co-op experience to play with friends or with others in a small community then this is definitely something to pick up.

Well you might tell yourself "God that looks like a giant pain in the ♥♥♥!" and I wont lie, it is. But its a fun pain in the ♥♥♥ that requires more teamwork than CS:GO, the community isn't complete cancer, and this is a one of a kind game. Let me break it down for you.

Flying Airships: Check
Steampunk: Check
Dying: You bet your sweet ♥♥♥ thats a check
A sense of accomplishment when you win: Check
Russians: Nope
Russian Voice Actor: Cheeki Breeki Damfki

Guns of Icarus is a great game but is absolutely FANTASTIC with a full crew of friends. There are a lot of microtransactions, but the affects they have are purely cosmetic, so it's not a pay-to-win game. This game requires strategy on every front, from dealing with the enemy ships all the way down to what to repair on your ship first, so whoever has the biggest gun doesn't necessarily win every time (though that does help). The importance of each station (Pilot, gunner, and engineer) in every situation is great so nobody feels left out of the chaos. Overall I love this game and give it a 9.2/10.

Action packed steampunk airship battles with lots of teamwork involved

Extremely fun even when playing with randoms which are usually the biggest problem in multiplayer coop games.
