Prepare to have your scrotum twisted as you shoot your weak pea-shooter as the enemies shoot you with the sniper rifles and LMGs they rented.

Yes, rented.
Unless you pay a lot extra to have it forever, you're renting.

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.

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.

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

Played back in 2008 and when I got my hands on this game, it was my life for a year and a bit later. It was the only "current" FPS that my ♥♥♥♥♥♥ computer could play at the time and I didn't own any consoles. Long story short, I remember enjoying it a lot.

I got a bit nostalgic (how ever much you can be with something that happened only 7 years ago, but still) I had the urge to try it again, not believing how bad everyone has reported it being since coming to steam.

Holy ♥♥♥♥, they weren't wrong.

The game is infected with hackers that when they disconnect or get kicked, crash the game room and the game has to be reset.

Nothing has changed in the last few years content wise either, except maybe a few new maps that are garbage and aren't actual played. I've only found game rooms for maps that I remember being there 7 years ago. This game has clearly been abandonded.

Avoid it at all costs.

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.

I wouldn't recommend it anymore. When it first was released (way before it was on Steam) I actually was getting people into it. It was nothing new in the world of FPS but at the same time it was something fun and you could do so many differnt things depending on your play style. I emded up being really good at the game and quite frankly got bored of it. I will say outright that during those times it was awesome.

Fast forward.

Decided to pickup again after about a year of not playing it and only playing CS:S. right away I noticed that something seemed off. Still had all the weapons from my previous runs but they seemed to do so very very little compared to when I was playing before. Looked into the shop and was horrified. This originally was not a P2W game but there is very little doubt about it being one now.

Really if you want to pay for a game that used to actually be a F2P instead of a P2W game then by all means do so I'll not stop you. However just go into this game knowing that if you want to be able to get anywhere you will have to break open the piggy bank.

TL:DR : The money you'd be dumping into this game is better spent wiping your ♥♥♥ with.

I remember being obsessed with this game a few years back. I saw it on Steam recently and downloaded it, excited to see what is new in the game. I'll tell you what's new. The game is filled with hackers now. It is not even worth downloading because every lobby has at least one hacker that sits in a corner of the map with an aimbot killing everyone. Also, to add to the pain, the game is extremely pay-to-win. A decent weapon is at least $5 just to use it for a week. It is just awful and it shouldn't even exist. There is a good thing about this though. It is ♥♥♥♥ing hilarious to watch 2 hackers on opposite teams constantly using aimbot.

The game is heavily reliant on the renting system to ensure players keep playing so they can keep their rented firearms from expiring. The game also does suffer from poor shooting mechanics as well as unbalanced guns that favor higher ranked/whales. Also a lot of the maps end up being sniper vs sniper with little to no gameplay in the middle of the map.

Additionally while there is a "forge" system in place it seems to be quite rare to actually use it.

Tis a mediocre game at best, and has great potential; but Nexon puts forth too much effort to persist upon everybody to pay money in order to get in-game money or items that are cheap, yet only accessible through paying money. Furthermore, this game has a poor hack-protection guard and has many hackers and cheaters who greatly deminish the slight amount of fun this game has. In summary, don't waste your time on this game; but if you love pay-to-win games, terrible maps and spawns, unfair weapons, and countless hackers, then by all means, go ahead.
