This game is everything I could've wanted from a MMOFPS, and for good reason. Battles are massive, epic, and get the blood pumping like no other FPS I have played before. The sheer beauty of battle is unmatched by any other shooter I've experienced. Combat mechanics, customization, and leveling are all done very well, as the advantages they give are not game changing, and they can all be unlocked without purchase. (Excluding purely cosmetic items, they are for purchase only) Squad mechanics are extremely deep, and are the most polished I've seen out of any game; it allows for levels of strategy I've never before seen in a shooter, and is all too fun creating a warpath with your buddies. Planetside 2 used to be extremely unoptimized, and was the bane of all but high end cards; however, thanks to some recent optimizations, I am easily running a solid 60 frames on ultra settings with a single GTX 660. As for the negatives, this game is very heavily reliant on team work. If your faction, squad, and individual soldiers are not all on the same page, it can quite easily ruin battles. My suggestion: form squads with your buddies, whip out your headset, and take command. Overall, Planetside 2 is quite easily the most polished F2P shooter available on steam, perhaps even surpassing TF2. If you have a computer that can handle it, definitely give PS2 a shot, it is worth it.
