Panzar is very sharp and detailed, above and beyond for a free to play game. This is what lured me into trying it in the first place, it looked so incredibly awesome I couldn't believe it.
Easy to learn, giving you only several abilities to deal with at a time, while also being unique in its classes and fun to hop into. Being a PvP game, they have recently gone into the alpha for a PvE gametype where you need to race the clock and capture points and defeat bosses, while trying not to wipe the group. I recommend trying it out, allowing you to learn the class you wish to play and its abilities.
Now, lets talk about the actual gameplay. Aside from the pay to win, the game features bland combat that is dominated primarily by two classes, the Gunner and the Tank. These two can pound out insane amounts of damage while easily avoiding death which makes life harder for everyone playing the other 5 or so classes.
Matchmaking is also pretty slow, as it has a very small player base, mostly russian. On Steam, it seems to peak around 400-500 people. If you happen to get into a game, make sure you stay the whole time and immediately enter the queue for another game, as you will get in faster, likely with several of the people from the previous match.
Unless you play as tank or berserker, you will die pretty quickly, so the game can be slow for new players trying to understand how the game works and can discourage people from bothering at all.
The game is also pretty glitchy, sometimes trapping you in walls and other bulges or cliffs in the map. I have noticed it most when playing Gunner and trying to place turrets beside cliffs or rocks, making it collide with the enviroment.
Last but certainly not least is the pay to win. People will argue and say its "pay to progress" and I am very well aware of this term and what it means, but this game forces you to grind so long for so little reward that to have the best armour in the game requires you to do two things, play either 200-300 hours or pay a simple 35$ (around that, its in euros) and have enough of the in game currency to buy you everything you need to destroy everything in sight.
It's free and the graphics are nuts, if you have an hour or two and you're bored, give it a go.
Personal Rating: 2.5/5
