Bought this expecting to play a decent game then I just relized i had bought absolute dog paste like grinded down dog poop particles. I want this game to be good so bad but theres a few things that need to be changed. Im going to write the list down and email it to the developers becuase this game is a let down. Would i recommend this now Hell No . But give it a while and if they polish up like the whole game it has a possibility to be good. If you want to buy a game with terrible spawns, glitchy game models and sub par shooting this is the game for you. If you like good games dont buy this

At its current state, a simple resounding no.


From the get go, this game houses a multitude of various problems and bugs, underneath shall be the list summary and the detailed experiences after. (All within a half-hour first look at that!)


-Broken Spawns

-Overcrowded Deathmatch Maps

-Poorly Optimized Graphical Settings

-Weird Starting FoV

-No Sense of Progression

-Geometry Glitches

-D.O.A. Community

-Various, Various Bugs!


Starting from the top, with the mention of broken spawns. There is no need for anyone to corner-camp or spawn camp, this game merrily spawns you either in front of the enemy or behind the enemy; repeatedly without a hitch. There is no spawn protection, so it is a game of cat and mouse repeat deaths/kills. The death match maps are tiny compared to the large quantity of people on them. 16 players overcrowding a map suitable for 8 - 10 players on top of the poor spawn system = some poor smuck getting spawn-killed 50 times over.

Graphical issues with the poor optimization with how things are handled, from other various forum posts, even those with beastly machines are having issues, having to turn things down to medium or lower to keep a frame-rate, this also comes with how my game defaulted my FOV to 100 at start, leaving a weird tunnel vision effect for me (I was able to change; it didn't keep after Apply until the second time). There is literally no sense of progression (from what I was able to play) within the game, everything is automatically unlocked from the get-go, no overarching goal to gain, nothing, just pick what you want and go with it.

As well, as with the overcrowding of maps, I myself was able to fall through the geometry from rapid spawns, seeing under the floor. I was able to rectify it by suicide changing class. These issues were all on TDM and DM, which brings up another issue; the D.O.A. community, there were only two servers with players on it at the current time of this writing, prior, much earlier in the afternoon (peak times) for the US, I seen a server listing of 5 servers, three DM, two TDM with active players. The other large listing of servers were completely empty.

The other issue, be it as massive as bugs, with any new game there are glitches, but this feels more like it didn't get the beta-testing length it needed, I was capable of winning an entire DM by being glitched out invisible (as if I am spectating still) and score 25 / 2. The two deaths were from me trying to fix the issue. On top of such, I've experienced lack of graphical loading, so we see a no-texture model of the gun, sometimes spawning the gun in my hand on top of a ghost no texture model of a gun on top of it, moving independantly. Sadly, by the time all these issues are fixed, the already D.O.A. community; it will be a ghost town. I had high hopes for this game and for me to experience all of this within THIRTY MINUTES of play, it isn't looking to well.

I'd love to play the other game modes... IF THERE WERE ANYONE PLAYING THEM.

Total rubbish. I payed 10 dollars for a game that at best doesnt crash when booted,at avreage crashes at lobby and has 10 servers who have a very presistent amount of 0 players.
If you put a game on a sale for 3 dollars less than a two months after its release shows how it sold before that.

The game at this state is almost unplayable. I get 120+ FPS on CSGO, and around 23 to 5 FPS on this. Its also almost unplayable because of all the team killers. No kick options, no autokick by servers, nothing so they will just sit in your game and kill you over and over again. Sont buy this game at this state. Its awful to play right now

When i saw this i was thrilled. Finally a game that's like Counter-Strike! No more Call of Duty Clones! Great idea, poor execution. This game is NOTHING like Counter Strike. It looks like Source. That's not a compliment. I played the beta after pre-ordering and found that this was ♥♥♥♥. "Maybe they'll listen to the feedback and change it for the better" i thought. Since they even delayed the game a month. They did not improve it at all. It's also has it's fair amount of aimbotters (Who doesen't even try to hide it)

This is an avoid at all costs. Get Insurgency instead if you want a good game.

3/10

It was important to give this game a fair review on launch. I was not thrilled with the beta. I really hoped they had used the extra time to fix the game. All they did was hope the negative publicity would go away. Most games have a big boost of players at launch and then trickle off. This just launched and there is a total of 60 players online. YES, I said 60! not 6000 but 60!!!!!!

The game plays as though it was made on a $30 game program. It is stripped down of all real FPS components. There is no teamwork , skill, or dedication required. It is billed as a "Back To Basics" shooter. That is true if B2B is the first Doom. If you want B2B go play Insurgency. This is only B2B in the graphics and playability. You can have a retro game that still uses modern technologies.

I feel this was lost in translation and lacks anything that makes this enjoyable. The movement and combat mechanics are just bad. This is a multiplayer only game and there just isn't anyone online to play with.
