If we look at Verdun in the standards of modern gaming, it fails miserably.
Compared to triple A games and large developers, Verdun and it's developers fails in almost every aspect of game making.
No first day DLC save final updates.
No "pay to win" mentality.
No unrealistic twitch shooting.
No dodgy business practices.
No massive failures on day one.
No insane advantage for high level gamers.
No false advertising.
By today's standards, verdun would fail on the table of EA, Bethesda, CA, SEGA, Nintendo, and just about every single gaming company that is larger than, say, CD Projekt Red.
These failures, however, make this game the best FPS on the market as of now.
These indie developers have crafted the most satisfying experience I have had in a first person shooter in a long damned time.
The game is perfectly digestable, the upgrades system is easy to get, the weapons are balanced and look and handle fantastically...
The list of amazing acheivements this game has accomplished could go on for pages of writing.
Verdun created it's own version of FPS gameplay, taking us to an era most companies find dull and drab. The trench warfare turn based attack gameplay is insane, as you see first hand the horrors of the First World War, which, by the way, is now 100 years past.
I bought this game in eraly access and was satisfied with it. Now I can't get enough of it!
I have been fed up with large companies coming out with garbage and selling DLC every five minutes. Verdun's updates and new squards are being released free of charge over the next while, so this game will become even better and more varied than it is now.
Verdun is one of a special kind of game, one that requires teamwork to dominate the map. While battlefield has become zany and unrealistic, Verdun forces you to play as a team, and unlike in battlefield, if you fail to do so, you will die again, and again, and again.
I cannot recommend this game more to anyone. The learning curb is massive, but you have so many classes to play as that are open to even the newest players.
Honestly there is something satisfying about having to use bolt action rifles in a trench that is captivating in and of itself. It is insanly addicitive and the squad based gameplay is incredible.
Verdun is by far the best FPS I have ever played as I have put in so many hours of my life into it (roughly 10 hours alone in hte last few weeks).
I cannot recommend this game any more.
SO GO BUY IT.
And as for some advice, keep your head down.
This isn't Call of Duty.
