-----------DON'T F***ING MAKE PEER TO PEER ACTION GAMES-----------------
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 SEQUEL...well...it 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 time..play 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 kill..it'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
-PEER TO PEER ? SRSLY ?
-Poorly designed maps
-WORST COMMUNITY EVER, LOOKS LIKE THE AVERAGE PLAYER IS 5 YEARS OLD (AND I THOUGHT COD WAS BAD)
-One-button-instant-kill stunlock sniping cowboy
-TERRIBLE melee combat
-Peer to peer doesn't work for ANY GAME, AT ALL
-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
-Soundtrack..it'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 party..it 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 ?
