Grabbed the game recently. As a player who has spent maybe thousands of hours in DoD, DoD:Source, and many other WWII themed games, this one feels great. Characters have a weight to them, and it is slow paced to most of the games that you see nowadays. Animations are smooth, and the game is trying to be authentic; what I mean by that is, you can see your legs and feet for example, when you take cover your character holds the weapon differently, etc... I mean those stuff which you don't see much nowadays.
Graphics are fine. Sounds can use a lot of work though. WWII themed games, I care about sounds by a great deal. UI can also use some work too, especially the "launcher"; it is sometimes unresponsive, and the weapon upgrade screen can sometimes lead you to wrong directions.
Now, maybe the one thing most of you are wondering. Is the game P2W? I haven't invested much time, but so far apart from one thing, I don't think so. The thing that bothers me is, 2nd Badge being available if you are a VIP member. A badge is basically sort of an achievement, and each badge grants you a different kind of bonus. A VIP member will have a badge advantage, and of course, time advantage.
I said time advantage, let me elaborate on that a little bit. Currently, I get around 3-4k points from a match. I recently unlocked a new weapon (unlocking doesn't mean you can use it instantly; it just means you can purchase it now). It requires 120k+ points. That is around 20-30 matches for a weapon that I cannot test, and it is a bit too much. I hope they add a trial system, giving you access to a weapon for 2-3 matches, to get a feel for that weapon.
There aren't many weapons in the game yet, and buying a weapon by the hard-earned points you acquire is a big investment. You can also tweak your weapons, but they have not much of a visual/aural effect as far as I can tell. I hope they'll add more weapons soon, I'd like to see British weapons for example.
Overall, I recommend this game to anyone who are interested in the FPS genre in general. If you like WWII theme, definitely give it a try. From F2P aspect, weapon costs could get a tweak, and 2nd badge could be made available to everyone at a certain rank, but nothing major aside from that.
