I was an avid player of the first GunZ back then. Actually I still am, in the many private servers available. When GunZ 2 was announced, I had mixed feelings. Many questions popped. Can GunZ 2 be better than GunZ?

The answer is, neither yes nor no. GunZ 2 is an entirely different game from GunZ, so you really cannot compare the both of them. GunZ 2 is designed with realistic gameplay in mind, so it lacks a lot of the "mechanics exploits" available in the first GunZ game.

In other words, if you've gotten very used to the controls, mechanics and physics of GunZ, you won't like GunZ 2. But if you started playing GunZ 2 without playing GunZ, chances are you won't mind.

With that comparison out of the way, I'd say GunZ 2 is a pretty decent game. Graphics are definitely a major plus side over GunZ, but you're talking about years apart between those 2 games. Being a GunZ player, I find myself not used to the new mechanics, but I still think it is a good game.

Like GunZ, you still get PVP and PVE matches. The only drawback thus far is the lack of players. It would be great if you could get a bunch of friends to play together.

Nothing much else I can say about this. It's definitely recommended though. It's free anyway, so why not add another third-person shooter to your games library?

Hikumi gives this game, a 6 out of 10.

After playing this game for a little over a year, I can say that it has effectively ruined my life socially, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

GunZ 2 is an online third-person shooting game created by South Korean-based MAIET Entertainment.

Idea of the game is good, but not many people are playing it. Every character has their own weapons, that can be used in battle. Good thing this that you can use melee weapons like swords and ranged weapons like pistols or rifles. So you can choose your game style.

I wish that you guys could get a hold of GunZ: The Duel as well as this
I don't mind this game, I actually like it but to change the entire game just to make everyone into classes just changed this entire game and the feel of it.
To say is a continuation of the series is an understatement, this is a complete overhaul and change of the original gameplay and has made it easier for people to spray and pray as well as rocket bounce all day.
The first GunZ and iGunZ was much better in all honesty and if Steam can somehow get a hold of that game, I'm sure people wouldn't mind paying for it just to be able to play it again. Even if its just once

I agree with Hikumi with a rating of 6 out of 10

-----------DON'T F***ING MAKE PEER TO PEER ACTION GAMES-----------------
=thank you=

So, my story with gunz goes waaaaay back when i was 7 years old or so playing in a low end computer and cheap internet, even with all that i was still able to hit some good combos and playing with friends was so fun, the game was balanced enough (even some premium weapons being kinda stupid) there were lots of guns to choose and equip a single character (breaker ftw) the coop mode was pretty good and the pvp was awesome

The only problems i saw with gunz was the female defense that was slightly better..and that made no sense at all..and the graphics that even in the release were bad, but WHATEVER, it was fun, addicting, playing with friends was a blast, combos were really hard to master but so rewarding when you finally manage to slash your sword, switch to a shotgun quick, shoot and get the kill (it sounds easy but good luck actually doing that lol)
Even with a low end pc and cheap connection i could still have loads of fun through YEARS (400$ notebook and 1MB connection for 10 bucks per month to be exact) my latency stood around 50-100, it's not good

Well, fast forward, new high end pc, great new broadband high speed connection and BOOM Gunz2 OH MY GOOOOOD, THAT AWESOME GAME I PLAYED WHEN YOUNGER IS HAVING A is having a bad, unbalanced, poorly developed, badly designed, broken and boring sequel..

-----------------------GUNZ2 IN A NUTSHELL---------------------------

Login, feel nostalgic, get confused from the characters, what does he do, who is she ? why a shield ? wich one is better ? jump in the tutorial..waste your coop, amaze yourself with the mind blowingly stupid AI, go to a deathmatch, hear how dozens of players had intercourse with your mother, get angry at that host that never changes because he has 0 lagg but the others are suffering from 500+ latency, see that happening again..and again..and again..and again..then after some time start seeing cowboys that press Q and kill you (it should be called aimbot instead of one shot one's really the same), g3t stunl0ck3d m8, 1t's d MLG cowboy 420 bl4z3 1t

Okay, let's talk about what's wrong in this game
-Bad character modeling
-Poorly designed maps
-One-button-instant-kill stunlock sniping cowboy
-Meh gunfights
-TERRIBLE melee combat
-Peer to peer doesn't work for ANY GAME, AT ALL
-Horrible ambience
-UI is one of the worst i ever saw
-Weird button mashing mobility
-Pretty much useless tutorial wich doesn't explain not even a quarter of the game
-Matchmaking is really annoying
-God mode bug that happens pretty often
-It locks your region so if you want to try playing maybe EU to see if there is a good host or better community there or your region lacks good hosts..maiet doesn't care
-Did i mention peer to peer shouldn't be used ?
-Oh, i did mention
-Good, i need to make this clear

What i actually found good's pretty good..we have to admit..
-Effects, the fire, gunshots and slashes effects are somewhat cool
-If you're lucky enough to get good hosts or you have a stupid fast internet connection, if you don't get MLG cowboys stunlocking you 24/7 and play with a full can be kinda fun
-The game really can improve..this can just be a shaky start but one thing is pretty clear, it will NEVER become what gunz used to be

Note to Maiet: Nerf Max to make the game more balanced..then release the strider class ? really..? is this some kind of prank ? some bad joke ?
