Where to start? Well this game is stunning!! Probably one of the most unique ideas I have ever played in a video game Guns of Icarus Online throws you into another world unlike our own. You are stuck on an airship with a group of strangers and your sole duty is to keep the flying fortress flying as you soar through crimson skys. On board all 4 players have a role they must repair the ship, man the arsonal of guns, and steer the ship from objects and your enemies. All of these roles need to be performed in unison or the entire ship will go down. An almost fairy tale universe that is best brought to life by you and your friends.

Absolutely fantastic game. The future of this game is constantly growing, with huge support from the community. There's a growing set of competitive teams who are consistently doing their best to take this game to the next level. Even if that's not your scene, it's a great game with a friendly atmosphere. Unquestionably worth the money. Customizable classes and ships you can adjust to fit your playing style. Buy a 4-pack and drag some friends in, or meet new people in the game. Whatever you prefer, this game has something for you.

This is one of the most fun team based games I've played. With only 4 players per team communication is key. It may seem, at first glance, to be strictly a shoot-em-up in a gunship, but there is a lot of in-depth strategy under the hood, especially in higher level matches. One of my favorite things about this game (other than pulverizing enemies and scrambling around a dying ship trying to sqeeuze out another breath of life from her) is the community. It's one of the best I've seen!

This is generally fun game, but mediocre if you are playing on your own.

It truly comes into it's own when you are playing with people you know and communicate with.
If you have two groups of four, coordinated attacks with both ships are easier to do. They feel tactical, and challenging, but still fun. You feel as though you are an army flying through the sky attacking any enemies that cross your path.

Steampunk. Zeppelins. Guns. Cooperate. One of the most original and enjoyable online multiplayer games out there. Being a crew in one of the Guns of Icarus ships is definitely fun.

Community is generally friendly and helpful, most likely because most players are above average age for online multiplayer games (e.g. LoL, DOTA...).

One of the best games I've played recently.

GoIO is one of the few games to actually understand what teamwork is. You play as part of an airships crew, where each member of the crew have their own abilities and specializations, this requires constructive communication rather than the usual standard for "multiplayer games" of lexicological abhorrence.

Excuse me for any mistakes. English isn't my native language.
Original: Vermillion Lies -- Astronomer

The spots of Crazy King are sexy
And Labyrinth's got that lonely spot
Canyon and Fjords are for deathmatch
But they get me twice as hot.

Achievement porn
Your heavy hwacha really turns me on
I'm working on your zeppelin
Your stupid bots are all over me.

I'll spread my legs for pyra
And I'd like to fly on Squid
I'll take Goldfish or Galleon
Or any of the airships.

Achievement porn
Your heavy hwacha really turns me on
I'm working on your zeppelin
Your stupid bots are all over me.

My engineer's the hottest
Being closest to the hull
And if that gets you off
You know you're not the only one

Achievement porn
Your heavy hwacha really turns me on
I'm working on your zeppelin
Your stupid bots are all over me.

It's absolutely amazing, the game feels like an RTS and it has every right too. It's 4 players per ship and it's ship v ship. Though the only downside that many players face. Is that you cannot board other ships. And it's hard to find a comptent crew sometimes. Though most the community is really helpful, and they are not afraid to show others how to work a certain part of the ship. And there is a lot of competetive play to it using the WANTED system. Where players can choose to become a WANTED person, and have to win matches to build a score. Doing so at the end of each period yields rewards. With that, I definately recommend this game to anyone that likes SteamPunk style games. And highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good game to play with friends.

A game where it's always the engineers fault if you're playing alone and you happen to be an engineer. If you play with friends, it's probably still your fault but at least you're having fun.
