After a profitable hour of the game not even starting up I have come to have a mental disease called Autism, it seems all combat arms players have it.

I should be elected.

29 hours on steam, 200+ hr pre steam. first played feb 2009. its not what it used to be. i has become pay to win. nothing is balanced, if you have money to buy perm weapons and gear, you might have fun. if not, then you better like grinding and be ok with a trash kdr, you will not be doing well with defualts. dispite alot of maintenance and updates constanly being flung at this game, hacking is still rampant, while many modes have become unused because of broken power levels on guns and unstoppable specs. all in all this game was good and genuinly fun but then it became about the money.

Why can't I get this game started? It freezes at the Please Wait tab after I signed into my Nexon account, and a pop up saying "Initialization failed. You must be singed into Steam for this to work. Anyone having this problem also?

I played this game years ago and enjoyed it quite a bit but after a while the game got worse. Hackers started taking over and of course if you were skilled at all whiny little kids who you kill try to vote kick you every few minutes. I left after so much frustration as Nexon seems not to care about the hackers.

After a few years when Combat Arms is back on steam I tried it once again hoping it will be better. I tried a few game modes and I cannot believe it. The game got worse! Hackers once again filled the servers eliminating any enjoyment of the game. Not to mention that half of the time the server lags out. And of course whiny kids kept accusing me of being a hacker because I killed them once. Nothing has changed and this game is virtually unplayable. Not to mention that it is pay to win. If you waste your money on this game you get unfair advantage of weapons and other stuff to easily kill the players that are smart enough not to spend money. Uninstall this crap and never touch it again.

Final score 1/10

Honestly i do not see how one of these people recomend this game to a fellow gamer. I've played combat arms plenty to know it is honestly littered with hackers, im not blowing it out of proportion when i say last time i played 1 out of 3 games
had a hacker in it. and they also allow player to take commend over a room, and they like to vote kick players who are just plain good or better than them. when it comes to f2p fps this is honestly one of the worst out there the physics are horrible. if you want to play a good fps your going to have to pay for it honestly through my experience the f2p fps games always come to a dead end simply because updates are very few and far between and customer support is horrible. expesicaly for nexon there customer support from my experience is among the worst. SIMPLY DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME WASTE OF TIME. you want a better f2p fps try out blacklight retribution, or planetside 2 even firefall is good

From 2 years of experience
I played this game and honestly it not worth it. I started playing this game in 2010 and stopped playing for 2 years, then I went back to get it another try and nothing changed....sadly.. the graphics remain the same. all they do is "update" the UI in the game. The communities in the game has are rude, people offending each other, the host kicking people for random reasons, hardly any support for this game and most of all, THIS GAME IS HACKED!

The amount of hacker in the game is horrible. Nexon always said that they will remove the hackers and push out patches, it hardly fixes the problem.

I gave it one last chance in 2014 and once again nothing changed.....
I repeat DO NOT USE YOUR REAL MONEY TO BUY the ingame items. ITS NOT WORTH IT!


So in the end, the "play game are clicks away, the choice is yours.

Used to be fun, but Nexon does not really support the game anymore. Kind of sucks because it has the great potential to be a good free FPS, but it is plagued with hackers and glitches. Furthermore, it is currently not working on steam nor the direct download version from the website.

And even though I have less than ten hours logged on steam, I am CSM 4 in game.

Children cry, they have not outgrown it from being a baby yet. So if you ignore the children and look at the facts:

Facts:
There are hackers, and the ability to kick or vote ban them.
The graphics are fairly dated, but still relevant.
The gameplay is entertaining and fast paced. (Think Counterstrike but more precise)
There are TONS of unlockables, you can rent or buy as well as level up.
You can use NX (real money) to unlock items and cosmetic upgrades, you also get NX for doing daily challenges.

The game is free, fun, and difficult. A lot of people get upset and blame the game instead of their own lacking abilities. The game is not perfect but it is better than most of what is out there ( which is not saying much). If you want to play a shooter, come play. If not give it it a miss. The community is sadly VERY hit and miss, you get a lot of children and ragers and the occasional hacker.

The best part for me: The amazing weapon selection, you are hard pressed not to find your preference.
The worst part: The community

I have been playing this game way before this was out on steam (early 2009ish) and this game was a load of fun then, but sadly this game had issues between hackers. Anyway, this game is highly customizable with neat game modes, but lets say that is it. Getting kicked by moderators for no reason, getting destroyed by hackers, and things of that nature completely destroys the game. Also, this game is pretty much pay to win - using a virtual currency system (with a store), so be willing to spend some money if you want to play this game (this is optional however). Overall, I would not recommend this game to those who don't want to spend money or play with/against hackers.

I've been playing Combat Arms since 2008.
It's improved a lot since it first came out, still definetly still a pay-to-win, but Nexon has made great strides in balancing that out.

It's graphics aren't bad, although the maps can sometimes be atrocious due to ♥♥♥♥ty design or how the textures are used in conjunction with the map's theme (Battle at the City Center's street signs are a PERFECT example).

In all honesty, it's a fun jump in and shoot and I've blown literally over $800 in the last 6 years. I don't regret that at all, considering all the fun I've had. The hackers are pretty much gone, all the serious players that take this game too seriously don't have a life, and the community has improved somewhat since 2008.

In short, I feel like I'm playing a heavily modified Quake with Nexon's giant ♥♥♥♥-tap added to it.

7.5/10

I once really loved Combat Arms. However alot has changed since now and then. Well I gave it a spin for old times sake. I don't know all the resons but combat arms has poor graphics and slugish movments. I don't if i should blam monitors for not properly updating the game or for living it to rot for newer computers. Well it was nice remburing all the old game play however Combat Arms on a down hill sloop. I hope somthing saves it.
