My review? 10/10
TL;DR version of review?:
Read the introductions, Wiki and watch some videos. Then give the game a shot. ASK QUESTIONS IN CHAT! Plenty of vets that will gladly teach you the fun of this game.
Now, I've been playing this game for a few days before the Steam release. So ignore my current played time listed.
Before giving this game a shot, you need to take note that this is no fast paced twitch based shooter like you'll usually see on Steam. Give the wiki a read and take a look at some of the introduction guides and videos.
KEEP IN MIND! There are ALOT of issues popping up with the Steam release that should be fixed in the next few days. Give it some time aswell.
Dont jump on the hate bandwagon because of the graphics. Look past that and at the gameplay, physics and fun you can have.
This game is something you'll love if you enjoy turn based combat with wonderful physics. Tabletop games and pen and paper RPG's.
Half of the negative reviews shown so far are from people who didnt bother checking the guide or asking questions in chat.
People load in, dink around in options and think "Oh, this isnt fun. I dont have anything to do." They dont bother asking questions, reading up on the game and just scoff "This game is awful" before leaving.
Is the learning curve steep? Yes.
But, there is hope. I joined up just as confused as most of you. I took a wee bit of time to read up on things and gave a race a try. I then asked a few questions and quickly got assisted by some of the vets.
If half of you would take the time to ask some questions, play a few scouts with some good people and actually get a taste of the game I'm sure you'd either enjoy it or hate it.
But thats exactly the problem. Most people will join this game and assume you can get right into the action. Get mad because they cant figure out what to do, troll around in the chat for a few then run back to TF2.
Again... Give the guides a read and dont be afraid to talk in chat and ask us questions. We can gladly help you.
All I ask is before you post a review is do more than just dink around in the client for 6 minutes silently before logging off. Speak up and let someone ingame show you how this is meant to be played. Then base your review off this.
Keep in mind aswell that Sam and the crew are busy making the transition to Steam aswell during all this and doing his best to fix all the problems popping up and give you an
