Payed for the beta a long time ago (£15) and hadn't played in a while. Find out its free to play and anyone can play. Tried to join a game, took 3 minutes and because 1 person didnt accept the game doesn't start. Shame as it was a good game at alpha/beta.

I didn't even pay for this game and i feel ripped off.

But really though, took about 5 minutes just to find a match and ended up crashing.

This game is really fun and it never gets boring considering i have 700 hours on it and i still play it, The only negative side of this is that its pretty unbalanced with some of the characers. but over all this game is amazing but doesnt get enough attension. if you are into FPS and building games, you will certainly enjoy this game :)

Hello and I'm writing this review because why not I have 50 hours on this game and feel like I'm eligible to review it.

What I like about Block N Load:

Block N Load I feel is a great game for being free.
It is a really fun game to play with friends super easy to pick up and has a nice learning curve that can let you get dozens of hours of fun with friends.
The game is great to play with friends who have cruddy connection (Danish friend plays with me on NA servers and gets like 150 ping doesn't really have much lag issues).
The community isn't bad(probably because most of the kids that play don't know that there is voice chat)
It is most definitely not pay to play because the only stuff you can buy are heroes, and you can get enough in game money to buy everything if you play around 100 hours.

The only few things I would like to see changed is:

1. More content(I know this will come with time)
2. During build time I would like there to be a middle ground where you can fight the enemy over an objective/buff that you can keep fighting over throughout the game (I play Op "juan" and some maps I don't do much during building phase).

So far, it's a fun free-to-play game. Doesn't seem to have any P2W features, and the perks provides advantages and disadvantages. The environment is almost completely destructible, making it fun to carve new paths into the battlefield. Just try it, it should take less than an hour to download.

Hi! this is my review about this game, as you know.. :D (Sorry for my bad english)

So I have played this game only 20.2 hours when I write this, but I think that I know everything that I need to know to write this review.

I have played this and heres my pros and cons...

Pros:
-Fun and Awesome gameplay
-Every character is unique, and that makes it intresting. You have from cutest hamster to creepyest clown!
-With short and fun tutorial, you will know everything you need to know to start and rest you can explore yourself!
-I can say that you cant get bored right away when you start your third match or so....
-You can blow up stuff if you want!
-You cant say that this is just one stupid minecraft copy with guns... THIS IS MORE!
-You will get evolved with your team, because you can tell your team how you want to play before match starts
(Defend or Attack)
-I haven't even listet everything that is awesome in this game :D

Mini-Cons:
-From my opinion, this should have more content(Can be easily fixed)
-World/Arena/"what ever you call it" Editor is little bit hard to use, but it is useable and community have created awesome maps with it!

Cons:
-this is free game so everyone can play it... that means there is trollers and bullies, but no report button.... I have been bullied, but theres nothing I can do to it...

OVERALL:
This is such awesome game, and if you just have time.. GO PLAY IT! At least give it a shot! This is one of the best games I have played! :-)
I would pay to play this game ;D (But I dont want to xP)

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤

-Not P2W(things you will waste your money on are mostly skins)
-Runs well
-Many awesome heroes that are very fun to play
-They are pretty much balanced I guess?
-Gameplay is good and fun
-Cool minecraft-like graphics but much better
-Awesome maps (You can build your own map in map editor and publish it)
-Game updates frequently (Not very but it still does)
¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤
Cons
¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤
-Game does not have many players soo searching for a match can be longer sometimes
-It needs more content IMO
-You may find yourself in a match with trolls that will destroy your base and you will most likely lose the game
-YOU MAY GET ADDICTED!
¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤
Remember:Always place those radars and dont box the cube!

Great game 11/10.

Good game it is free and it isn't a pay to win but you can pay if you want it has very few lag spikes I have only had one lag spike in my 10 hours of playing. This is an amazing game eventhough it is only in beta I would recommend it to anyone who likes tactical shooters. In the game you have 5 mins at the start to set up defences for your bases where there can be up to three bases at once then it is wich ever team can destroy the other team's base the fastest (there is up to 5 people on each team).

So far, I've had 230 Hours on record, so I feel like I can give a valid review of this game.

I love this game.

I was just looking for free to play games, and I found this. It said it was sandbox based, so I thought why not.
I'm not a fan of shooting games, or any kind of games with scopes or kills. I thought this was just a game that you build and destroy stuff. Not harmless.

However, when I played, it had so many nice characters, and the gameplay was amazing. The graphics are beautiful, and it's a type of game that isn't full of people who rage or brag. (Well, I do encounter some squeakers and I find them hilarious) It's a really nice community, and it reminds me of a mixture of TF2, Garry's Mod, and Minecraft. They had a baby. It's really fun, and it brings the child out of me. The colors are vibrant, and it isnt full of boring guns and rifles and all of that fancy stuff that has boring colors. If you do like grenades and those fancy guns, they have desired heros for that (Sarge, Cogwheel-ish, Nigel, Kira). But even so, when I play with any of the hero's it's really fun because they have their own personalities.

And for people who are curious, there are 5 female heros as of now, and 9 male heros.

If you're wondering, this game isn't Pay to Win. They have perks that you can buy with gold that you earn from playing, but each perk has an advantage + disadvantage. (Ex. 20% Faster Reload Time, but 20% Slower running speed) To make things fair, which I really like. And what I really like about Block N Load is that there is two currencies.
Platinum, and Gold.
What's the difference?
Gold you earn no matter what, on each game you play (However not on custom games).
You cannot buy gold with real life money. You can use gold to buy perks and heros.
Platinum however, cannot be earned. The only Platinum you can earn is by getting an account upon first in-game experience. You get 300. With Platinum, you can only buy skins for heros.
Skins are just unique 'costumes' for heros to play in. For some people it gets boring to use the original hero skin. Plus, it's a nice way to show you love that hero!
FYI, skins do not benefit the player in anyway during gameplay. It is only for show.
You can get about two skins for 4.99 USD, which I did once on my steam wallet. It's pretty cheap and fun to use for people who like to get skins.

Overall, Block N Load is fun, and you will get addicted if you got interested the first time. :D
You should really give it a try, but beware, it's not the dev's fault that you got addicted!

Also, Kira-Chan is my favorite Skills hero, and my favorite Brains hero is Dream Genie, and my favorite Brawn hero is Yury the Yeti.
