About This Game

Gear Up is a multiplayer game where you build tanks and battle online opponents. Crawl the arena in devious spider legs, escape with your trusty jetpack or serve your opponents a healthy dose of proximity mines as you design with over one million different combinations.

  • Master the art of propulsion – Will you go for the rumbling caterpillar tracks, swoop across the arena using wind turbines or let loose the smell of burning rubber with go-kart tires?
  • Adapt your arsenal of weaponry – Do you prefer the cold steel of the minigun or the heartwarming sensation of the flamethrower? Will you fall for the old world charm of a thundering bronze cannon or does the electric zapping of the tesla generator tickle your mind?
  • Wage war your way – Regardless if you deploy the body of a submarine, blend into the background with stealth generators or love giving your opponents the dry taste of gunpowder with a barrage of missiles – the choice is yours to make.

Features

  • Battle up to 16 players online
  • Play Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Conquest
  • Massive customization with over one million different combinations of parts
  • Arcade physics simulation
  • Leaderboards and achievements

This games very enjoyable. It may quite hard to get used t the physics and you will die quite a lot in your first couple of games, but once you get into the game it is definatly worth you while.

I couldn't get into it, which is sad, because this is the sort of game I've been wanting to play since I was a kid and it didn't deliver on that at all.

It's frustratingly annoying and I'd rather play a proper shooter, because that's all this game is: a shooter.

Instantly killed on this game, to me it is a waste of space and a game where beginners die and never improve.

This game is insanely fun. The concept is awesome and the levelling up system is great. The way you can build your tank is rewarding and has plenty of customization. There are a good amount of well made maps.

The two issues I have, however, are so prominent I cannot recommend this game. The first is that extremely powerful players are matched in the same servers with new players, meaning new players have almost no chance of survival. Most servers are just farms for OP players to pillage money from.

The game also closes every 30 minutes - it crashes and no remnant of it remains in Task Manager or elsewhere. This issue is not exclusive to me, as all my friends have it.

Developers: Fix that bug and let people play with others at their own level if you want this game to succeed!

Firstly, I'd just like to say that this is an awesome game. It's like RoboCraft, but way better! And It's not like other games where if you spend money on all of the in-game purchasables you win every game. YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO BE GOOD TO WIN!!!! Thats one of the things that makes the game so awesome. The style of graphics is also amazing, And some of the tank designs people come up with are HILARIOUS!!! It's got good music (not great, but it's ok) and the maps are really good (not good, but FANTASTIC!!!). I would recomend this game to anyone without a doubt! :)

I am recommending this game 2 years after its release. Even now, it is fun to play with the various hulls and turrets to take down anyone in your path.

Pros:
Well designed game
Fun to play with friends
Awesome combinations
Challenging multiplayer battles

Cons:
If you dont start out in private matches with friends, you will die nearly immediately
Disbalanced in-game matches (any level can join)
Slow gear upgrades
Only partially optimized
You have to pay to get infinite slots if you want all the gear

Ways to get rid of Cons:
Start playing with friends, then move to random multiplayer
Make private matches with friends
Buy premium or basic dlc (premium better)
Lower graphics settings, then it runs smooth
(Not really a bypass to this, but its not a pay to win)

Overall Review:
Although this game needs a bit more optimization and balancing, you can be a top player within days of playing. I think this game is more suitable for 5-10 friends (including yourself) to play together to have more fun. I do wish the game had certain restrictions on ranks for joining online matches, because my first few matches i was lucky enough to be put on a 6+ rank team against 1-5 rank team (rookie team) so I gained more money than i probably should have to start. Premium Gear Up is a good DLC game. I recommend this to anyone who wont ragequit, but rather be patient whenever they die, but they will have to learn to accept that losing is a major possibility.

8.5/10 would die again.

P.S. This is my first review, is it good?

Gear Up is an insanely fun and beautiful little free to play game. I had a lot of fun playing it. I really did, and i will probably end up playing this game every now and then. within an hour of the time that I played the game I ended up making top three places on the leaderboard about every game, so I can say it doesnt take long to get used to the controls and how different mech combos handle. The mech combonations are quite astonishing for a free to play game with TONS of variety. Most mech combonations are actually very balanced for various play styles. For instance, if someone with a heavy build can aim really well they can pretty much dominate the playing field. Meanwhile if someone with a light speed build knows what they're doing they too can top the leaderboard. It is in no way a P2W game. I can certainly say that it has more content than COD that's a given. So the game is very balanced and very fun. For a while...So what's the catch...?

My biggest problem with the game is how repetative the game gets as fast as it does. There are about 5-6 (give or take) maps total in the game. Two of which are only used for a single game mode, conquest. Which hardly no one really plays, or atleast any full servers of which when I played. I have yet to be in a full conquest server. Although that may just be me and my crap luck :( Who knows? So you have about 4 maps, not counting the night versions (which are absolutly stunning to see the lights and colors of the mechs.) Eventually I just got bored of the whole game since I only used like 2 mech combos. Another thing is the lack of players. I have found an almost full server everytime I played the game, but only 1, sometimes 2. And they're are almost always TDM or DM. Overall a fun game but lacking in variety. Except for the mechs, you could tinker with them for longer than my total play time. Seriously go crazy. Anyway, i'm not going to say to avoid the game by any means, it's still F2P and I understand that, just don't get your expectations up too high. The style alone is enough to atleast give it a try. You won't regret anything if you do download the game though.

Great game, only dislike is that I wish you couldn't die in water so fast, I love the trailer music, you can go as a flea, beetle or spider and go under armed arena, and this game is just great.
