Key Features

  • CONSTRUCTION, COMBAT AND CREATIVITY - Complete strategic and creative freedom is at your disposal to annihilate the enemy however you like.
  • MULTIPLAYER MAP CREATION - Ace of Spades: Battle Builder includes a map creator mode, which allows you to collaborate with up to 23 friends and make your very own Ace of Spades battleground! Custom tools and over 400 prefabricated structures will help you build the ultimate multiplayer maps, which you can upload and share via Steam Workshop.
  • CUSTOM GAME MODES - Play the way YOU want to play! Host your own match or create your own mode using the wide selection of settings available to you. From fine tuning your favourite mode & classes, to turning TDM into a Spade-only grudge match with predefined teams, as a lobby host you can:
  • Set your lobby to invite only, friends, or open, and also have full control over who joins with the host ‘kick’ function
  • Sort players into specific teams – great for clan matches, or for playing on the same team as your friends
  • Choose the map you want to play, official or player made
  • Set the size of the match, and it’s duration

After alpha, this game has went nowhere but down. From a simple minecrafty shooter it was supposed to be, it has become a tf2 knockoff with some minecraft mixed in. I didn't get to play it much in alpha due to computer limitations (I had a mac at the time, don't ask), but I still could see - that (not this) game was awesome. I was a bit sad the original developers had sold it and I am a lot more sad to see what the new devs have done with the game. This game was free to play for a weekend, so I gave it a shot. I was very dissapointed. Glad I didn't buy it.
If you want A LOT better ace of spades experience (the experience it was when it was good), I recommend Flan's mod for minecraft.

It was good, key word being "was".

When it first came out it was awesome! but I'm not sure what happened but after a single update the game was runined, so many things went wrong and the entire player base was driven into the ground.

Do not buy Ace of Spades.

I had fun from this game, but since I upgraded to windows 10 every resolution above 800*600 ♥♥♥♥s up the screen. It have been 2 years now and there is still no fix nor they even respond to me, so now they are getting bad review.

When the game was first released on to steam I thought, "Oh, this is awesome! They finally polished up the game." I was wrong. So, so, so wrong. The game was almost nothing like the alpha version in terms of gameplay, which was refreshing, but also alienated the game for me. It was enjoyable and I played with friends often... Until they just ♥♥♥♥ed with the gameplay to the point where it was too painful to play anymore.

On a seperate note, they do have a gamemode that mimics the alpha... but seems so poorly put together in the new engine it's running on. Anything that made the alpha so fun and addicting just seems lost in this game.

Don't buy it.
It's pretty boring, the old Ace Of Spades is better. MUCH better. And since I'm brazilian, I can't play with a ping more than 100ms. And people only play TDM, Zombies and SOMETIMES classic.

Download Build And Shoot or OpenSpades. It's free.
Build And Shoot is the classic Ace Of Spades
OpenSpades is the classic Ace Of Spades with better graphics.

ASPETTO VOTO
Grafica 6/10
Gameplay 8/10
Animazioni 6/10
Suoni 6/10
Voto Finale 7/10

Lati Positivi

+ Molte Mappe

+ Gameplay divertente

+ Molte modalità di gioco, per tutti i gusti.

+ Molto divertente per il fatto che la mappa è INTERAMENTE distruggibile e modificabile.


Lati Negativi

- Il ping dei server non è dei migliori

- Soffre di alcuni Bug e di alcune Animazioni fatte leggermente male

- Ci sono molti particolari che potrebbero essere corretti.


Note
Il gioco in sè è davvero molto divertente, molto dinamico, ogni partità è diversa dall'altra, l'approccio con l'avversario può cambiare. Molto bello il fatto che ogni classe abbia le proprie armi e specialità.
Il fatto che la mappa sia interamente modificabile aggiunge quel tocco di creatività che non guasta mai, è il gioco che tutti gli amanti di minecraft dovrebbero provare, soltanto con le armi.
