since no one seem to play online the PVP is completly empty and there only 4 black OPS missions , only worth it if you can bring a few friends togueter to play ... well at least the game is only 1$ if your looking for something to play in coop for a weekend and have no problem using GFWL but then even for that dollars you don't get something that will last for very long.


well the game itself is not bad and I actually managed to beat the first black OPS mission on my own but it is clear that these missions where designed for 4 players and not really meant to be done on solo.

and this game require a online connection at all time to play also , GFWL 'local profile' won't allow to even launch the black OPS campaign in solo.

I completly enjoy this game and reccomend it to anyone that likes futuristic shooters.

It has great gamemodes similar to Call Of Duty, Battlefield, etc.

It's a shame that no one is on Multiplayer anymore, because it is a masterpiece, but no one notices it, it runs well on most system and requires DirectX9, not like Retribution where you need DirectX11.

This isn't a Pay2Win game like Retribution, you earn things and keep them by leveling up. Not by constantly paying for Zen. You don't keep things you earn unless you buy them with Credits in-game, or real money. There is no currency or anything in Tango Down. And it's easier to level up than pay real money for guns and things in Retribution.

There is more things in Retribution to try, but I do wish it focuses more on the "F2P" method, Tango Down's only $0.99 on the Store, so it's fine for your wallet. The core gameplay of Tango Down is more fun than the gadgets in Retribution.

The servers in Tango Down are always up and running. Not like Retribution, you need to connect to Europe to play on public servers, and even private servers.

I think this game deserves more attention than Retribution, but it's only my opinion.

Don't even bother with this game, not even one player on the multiplayer servers.
And also I can relate to this as about as bad as the Call Of Duty shooters (Well from my perpective)
There's not much to say about this game and not much to describe in a review so I'll just leave it at a no.

This game should not be sold any longer. It REQUIRES GFWL to do ANYTHING which no longer exists.. So.. no multiplayer, no co-op.. no single player.. nothing. Go buy some candy with your dollar instead, because you'll get no use with it here.

Almost everyone who buys this game gets a bad CD Key that has already been hacked by someone else and registered here on steam. This INCLUDES buying it directly from the steam store. I bought my copy here on steam and got a bad key, when I contacted support they told me to contact the people I bought it from and get a refund.

Add funds to your steam wallet and then buy the game, then get a refund for the steam wallet via your bank, and not the ammount for the game. So if you add 50.00 to your Steam wallet, and you buy the game, get a bad key like me. You can contact your bank, have them issue a refund for a faulty product (50.00 you added to steam) when really the game was only 2.50. See the profit here?

I have posted this to say Screw steam and their ♥♥♥♥♥♥ support, after waiting a week I was told to talk to the people who I bought the game from and get a refund. THATS YOU STEAM!
