Tired of the same old shooters? Then AirBuccaneers might be something for you.
AirBuccaneers is a slow paced Action FPS (yes I said slow...). You pick one of the two teams (Buccaneers vs. Vikings), afterwards you will spawn on land. From there you're able to walk towards one of the few airships and take controll of them. There are a few different airships for you to choose some are big, some are small. Just to be clear; you are able to fight on land but this rarely happens.
After you've chosen one of the Airships and up in the air, it's time to search the enemy. You can walk freely on your airship and switch between steering and controlling the cannons. When steering you are able to boost your ship into any direction you feel like, after each boost you will have to wait a while to use it again.
Because the game is slow paced, strategy and timing are the most important aspects. Flying the airships is slow, even aiming/firing your cannons is slow. If you are too close to an enemy ship they are able to jump on your ship, kill you and hijack your ship, which can be pretty fun. There are various weapons for you to use aswell like melee weapons and grenades.
If you've played for a while you're able to level up your character, pick different perks and also gain new clothes/armor.
Originally being a Unreal Tournament 2k4 mod, AirBuccaneers feels and plays like a mod. The controlls are a little bit clunky and the graphics are not up to date anymore, it did not bother me much personally though.
Overall, AirBuccaneers is a refreshing and original game, something you've probably never played before. Will you play this game for 4 hours straight? Probably not, but it's a great game to return to every once in a while. At the time of writing, I found out the game is Free To Play, so there is no reason not to try it. I would've recommended it even if there was a price tag, just try it!
