By itself this game is fun. Jumping into a server full of people that know what they're doing is not. Notice how this does not detract from my overall positive review. That's because at the core the game is fun. However its limited player base may turn you away quickly.

I would recommend this game if you can get it on sale. However for $12 I think this is asking a bit much from a certain demographic. It's clear this game is meant to target those that are into "sci-fi" and "mech" genres, and if you are that person, then the 12 dollar price tag just might be worth your while. Upon viewing the trailers you might think that this game is way too chaotic to even traverse anywhere. And you're right, it will be, at least for the first time you try it.

The core gameplay revolves around you piloting a strike vector, a high-tech machine used to rip your opponents a new one. The Strike Vector has two modes that are toggleable by the space bar; a jet mode and a hover conversion. The jet mode is where things get crazy fast. While combat is possible, it is best used to get where you need to be before you engage someone in your other mode, the hover-harrier. The hover harrier is much more controllable and very viable with its own unique dash mechanics and combat features, such as aiming down your sights and overall being much easier to aim with.

Jets control like ice moving on a buttered floor. They don't maneuver as well as you'd hope, and you'll surely crash if you try to fly it in small nooks and crevices. However, paired with the hover mode you'll find that you can dodge missles, get through tight spaces, and out-maneuver your opponents if you can master toggling between the two; jet for speed and hover for turning. The controls are responsive and there is really no delay when inputting commands for your Vector, so you should have no problem transforming on the go.

Combat on the other hand may take a while to get used to if you're not willing to put in the effort. Leading shots can be a pain, and chasing down opponents can feel useless. Doing damage is also very unrewarding and can be discouraging/frustrating when you do a lot of damage and your teammate steals your kill. On the plus side there are multiple weapons to choose from for each hand, each with their own unique attributes and are fairly balanced. And yes, all weapons and abilities are unlocked at the start. The main progression feature is to unlock Vector parts and skins.

Pros:
-Fast gameplay
-Excellent Twitch Shooter Mechanics
-Third and First person cockpit
-Customizable Vectors
-Weapon Variety
-Various game modes and maps
-Extremely responsive controls
-Balanced weapon set-ups based on your playstyle
-Single player challenges and leaderboards

Cons:
-Certain weapon mods don't feel viable for particular weapons
-Team games don't feel very teamwork oriented (kill stealing everywhere, no assists)
-Doing damage in game doesn't feel rewarding if you don't get the kill
-Not much progression to be had unless you're into customizing, could use more customization features
-Learning curve is kind of steep
-Not very casual friendly
-Small Playerbase

Tl;dr - The game is fun but may not be worth the 12 dollars for certain people. Lots to do and there are good times to be had here. I'd recommend it to people who like mechs, jets, and shooters.

No one is playing this game. For a multiplayer game that has 3 people playing globally on a Saturday... ridiculous, I feel ripped off, save your money.
