Ah what is to be said about Heroes & Generals. This game used to be incredible. It had so much potential, and still does. But sadly the developers have decided to RUIN this game. I mean completly WRECK this game.
All of the badges used to be so balanced in this game (The way you progress, get new weapons, perks, modifications, ect.) but for some reason, the develpoers decided they wern't making enough money and completly unbalanced the game. Unless you want to shell out hundreds and hundreds of dollars on this game to progress at a reasonable pace. If not it can take up to 200 hours plus to complete a badge (12 levels in a single badge).
As of today's most recent patch, sniper rifels in the game have been drastically changed. Although some may argue that the new patch effecting sniper rifles helps balance them to remain competitive with the other weapons, it has, in fact just made them even more ridiculous. The main benifit to using a bolt action scoped rifle in the game is the ability to outrange your opponents. But as of today's patch, everyone can mount a resanobly powerful scope on their rife (Bolt or Semi). While this seems to be a good thing -and it most ways it is- they developers lowered the base power of the conventional bolt action scope so much that it is more practial to use it without a scope at all!
Well, that's enough about scopes and rifle. Another new feature is the ability to pay your way through badges. Again this seems to be a good idea, but the way the developers have made it, it costs an astronomical price to buy in ingame currency, But costs an astonishingly minute amout in premium funds! To make things worse there was a recent patch decreasing the amount of experience earned so much that it can take HOURS just to get the first level of a badge! (It used to take minutes.) (It also depends on your skill. But for an average player like myself, it takes quite a bit of time.)
I know throughout this review I have been VERY negative towards this game. But the game does have a lot of potential to be good. It was really really good before the developers got greedy -but who knows? They might wise up 'sometime' soon.- So for those of you who are reading this review before installing this game, I would advise againts installing it at this moment. Although the game advertises "Free to Play" it might as well be 200 dollars USD. Because that's how much you would have to spend to have an enjoyable time. Just as a finial parting note, I'd just like to say, there is not need to treat this review as the gospel. Things will change in coming updates that can, and most likely will make this review out of date(At least I HOPE so). Anyway, thank you so much for reading this review. I'm truely sorry it has been so negative.
Have a great day!
