So I bought this game on sale, and it looked really good, but I couldnt play it because my com♥♥♥♥r was a ♥♥♥♥, but now, on my new com♥♥♥♥r, It works fine. This game is really fun, Like, REALLY FUN. I'd say that it's a lot more fun than even Space marine was for me, and as an avid fan of warhammer 40k, That means something.
There are a few balance issues though. For starters, jumping backwards is the same speed as running forwards, so you know, Melee is really easy to counter. Speaking of that, Almost everything you come across is a counter for melee.
Shotguns, Miniguns, Sniper rifles, Launchers, EVEN SOME GRENADES WHIPE THE FLOOR WITH YOU. Now, I'm not saying melee is impossible, quite the opposite, It's really fun. Personally i'm a fan of the Heal katana, but i dont see it often. It's just kind of annoying when you get someone with a freeze gun so that you cant move, a fire grenade so you cant heal, and a shotgun to sit right infront of you, but just out of range. Speaking of that, I cant figure out which one, But one of the shotguns seems really freaking broken. In three games, this same guy was wielding it, and it ended up deciding the fate of all three games. I mean what the ♥♥♥♥? It has a set spread and high damage and fire rate. Who thought that was a good idea? It doesnt even have a slow reload speed or anything. Once it starts rolling, it doesnt stop, unless you snipe him down, which you cant do because there's freaking terrain literally everywhere.
Other than that, the gameplay really is quite fun. The main gamemode is titan mode, where, when the game starts, you have enough for one peice of armor, and both teams have a titan. Both titans are invulnerable untill they start to fight.
Pretty much at this point you have two choices, Help destroy theirs, or use excessive force to stop them from destroying yours. After either dies, the other goes on to try break two walls, There are turrets that assist you at this point, but the enemies can destroy those. After either has destroyed both walls, they have to break the enemies power core with four hits. When both die, a new phase begins called the creep round, in which you go around killing some creeps for recources for armor and to power up your titan. There are also golden ones, which are really fast and hard to kill with melee (Rip), Which, as you can guess, gives better recourses and boosts your titan even more. As you kill enemies, your currently equipped weapon levels up up to 5 times. When you die, it resets. I'm not sure how the reset is calculated, but i often end up with level 2-3 out of spawning, which is wierd. So armor has three levels and doesnt reset. Armor has really nice bonuses, For instance, i use a centurian armor set, which gives bonuses to yourself and nearby teammates, like movementspeed damage and healing bonuses. it also raises your health by a bunch. All in all, I reccomend this game. it's really fun, but not without it's kinks. I'd say about a 7.5/10.
