Its like the devs of "World of Tanks", "Robocraft", and "Loadout" all got together with Michael Bay and made a video game.

A concise review...of course, mileage may vary (different people have different experiences, values, and expectations which will result in different opinions):

PROS:
  • Great art style
  • Good combat mechanic
  • Good bot custom creation system (except for upgrading parts, which is one of the worst in any game I've played, see below).
  • Devs are active in the community
CONS:
  • Most importantly right now: In-game purchases of boosts (credits for example) DO NOT WORK. The devs are aware of this complaint but insisted it is working fine. I have evidence to the contrary (several screenshots during and after the 24hr boost, there is no difference in credit gain whatsoever. It was a wasted purchase.
  • Tutorial is severely lacking (lobby chat has a never ending supply of new players asking what to do, how to build a robot, etc.)
  • Limited to small skirmishes of 5 v 5 (some may not necessarily mind this, but for others, it just feels to small, too "quick."
  • It's very common for players to go AFK because they get rewarded either way (even if it is a loss). This creates a serious imbalance in the small 5 v 5 match.
  • VERY limited inventory space (devs want you to buy more), which means there isn't much room for customizing or building bots. Creativity is discouraged.
  • The price increases (it isn't static) if you want to increase your inventory. Again, another discouragment of creativity.
  • Player is nickel-and-dimed for almost everything imaginable in game (customization, extra space, being able to form a squad/group with more than 2 players), etc.
  • Chat Lobby has no filter, there is no way to mute/ignore/ban players (people spam porn sites and obscenities quite a bit, again, screenshots taken).
  • Upgrading your parts is expensive, yet adds very little value. Almost all parts gain minimal durability and durability only. Each part already has numerous properties, but none (w/ exception of damage for just a few weapons) ever get upgraded. It's absurd IMO as a higher tier part ought to have a relevant increase in quality...in Guns and Robots however, it does not.
  • You get random bonus chests at time, but have to pay a lot of sparks (purchased with real cash) to unlock them.

Summary

The game is worth playing as long as the player understands that this is a game in which the player is expected to spend quite a bit of money to enjoy the full experience. However, spending money in-game (vs DLC Starter Pack) just doesn't work (for me) and the devs don't seem to be concerned with it.

It's a game I'd play casually, for kicks, but would not recommend to friends and definitely would not recommend spending money on, a lesson learned the hard way after purchasing the Starter Pack and spending sparks in-game. It's a cash grab through and through.

Great concept and graphics, but here are the failures that make it not playable at the moment.

1. The matches are ENTIRELY too short. I'm talking 30 seconds to 3 mins max. It takes longer to queue and ready up for a match than it does to actually play it.

2. No sufficient tutorial. I ended up wasting a lot of currency because the game did not explain what to do to a reasonable degree. I'm still not sure how to take components out of the items.

3. There is NO respawn, which in turn is part of the reason the matches are so short. Everyone dies in 3 minutes or less, game over. You didn't get to play so now you're back to waiting to queue for another match which will be the same exact boring match where you either die quickly and don't play, or the match ends up ending a few minutes later.

4. There's not as much customization as the game lets on. Some things clearly work better than others, and many of the options are redundant. You'll never have a need to mix and match so many things, you'll just want to go with what works better than other things, and it will become obvious quickly.

Guns and Robots can best be described as World of Tanks meets Loadout. Let me explain why:

It uses the World of Tanks method of resolving objectives. If you blow up, that's it, you're out. If everyone on one side dies, the game is over. The objective rarely is considered in most matches because of this. It also uses the idea of disarming an opponent based on where you shoot. Shoot the feet, you slow the opponent. Shot the arms, you disarm it. Shoot the head, you impair it's vision.

It's like Loadout in that, in order to succeed, you have to experiment with your build. There are a sea of different parts, whcih are used to make modules, the components of your robot. Each robot is made up of one chassis, one engine, one body type, one battery (or two), one head unit, and 2 to 4 weopons and weapon frames. This means you can tailer the bot to match your strategy as much as you wish. To make this more absurd, you can equipt up to two devices, which allow you to pull the game to your advantage.

Also like loadout, you ave to buy every part. Unlike Loadout, however, there is a limited inventory for each part, and each part can only be used on one robot at a time, so you are encouraged to just have one, with a few spare pieces to mmix it up a few times.

In short, it's intense, it's annoying, but once you deal with it, it can be a really good game. Or a really bad one.
