This game is truly a work of art.
It's very easy to sink hours into this game whilst being completely oblivious to time. This is not the sort of game where you can enter a battle with a gameplan. You have to stay with your team and work together to overthrow the massive opposing armies and slowly conquer the battlefield. 'Going rambo' is about as feasible as it would be in real life--you die right away--and this is done intentionally. The whole point of the game is that "The war goes on without you"
and it really makes for an innovative and amazing experience in doing so.
The game features singleplayer and multiplayer, and I find multiplayer to be where this game really shines. You can communicate with other players to devise tactics to capture key points on the map, sneak behind enemy lines with a few friends to destroy enemy communications, or just lead the assault on the main front. All of this can be done on singleplayer too, and it's still enjoyable mind you, but multiplayer is definitely the strong suite of this game.
Most modern games involving guns make you the most important person, but this game takes a step in the opposite direction and forces you to work with your team. Your player has no 'health bar' and the chance you will die from a bullet is based on percent. For instance, a sniper rifle bullet may have a 90% chance to kill you, whilst a submachine gun bullet might only have a 70% chance. This may sound a bit quirky at first, but it really
does it's job in keeping you with your team and makes you be very cautious in any situation.
The feeling you get knowing that you mean almost nothing in a match is a new experience, and also a very comforting one. I'm not saying this at all in a bad way, this game feels fresh and new and is certainly worth picking up for a humble $10.
But like all games, there are a few downsides you might want to consider: The game features plenty of maps and weapons to keep you occupied for potentially hundreds of hours. You might sink 2 hours into a skirmish game and not capture a single area. In my own experience, this has a postive and negative effect. On the postive, this can feel awesome. You go to bed after an hour of playing in an online match, only to wake up the next day to find players are still on the same map and you can pick up right where you left off! On the flip side though, this can be frustrating in skirmish modes, because too
long of a standstill and you may be inclined to just quit and start a different map.
In addition, the game devs have implemented rare weapons, which is a great
idea, except for the fact that no one ever wants to use them because they are, for all extensive purposes, extremely difficult to find and dependant on RNG, which makes them feel utterly useless because once you die holding one, you're probably not getting it back. More weapon varities that can be easily obtained would be an amazing, and debatebly a neccessary update.
Also, the title is aptly named. You will be doing a lot of running. There are vehicles on each map, and you have the ability to call in your own as well, but they are somewhat scarce and can be difficult to control. The level up system is another thing that could use some tweaking because it is very harsh to new players, forcing you to use one gun until you slowly level up to unlock more.
Keep in mind that while this game has both positive and negatives, this game is still in early access and is getting updates every few weeks that adds more content and balances plenty of things.
This game is definitely worth a try if it looks intriguing at all to you. If you're still having a hard time deciding if it's worth the purchase, try downloading the free demo off of the dev's site. It only has one map but it really allows you to get a feel for the flow of battle and how the game works.
Overall this game is truly a fresh experience. While it has a few flaws here and there, I imagine everything will be ironed out by the game's full release date. I hope this game gets more recognition because it really is fun, and most people don't even know it exists. PLEASE spread the word about this game!
