Metal Drift is honestly a jewel amidst broken glass; a diamond in the rough. There are too few games of its caliber out in the general PC world anymore, and most are either too expensive, too limited in what they can provide, or too broken to even be worth playing, usually any number of the three mixed together.
The general synopsis: Metal Drift is what I like to call Soccer with Tanks and Lasers. You're given two teams; one blue, Athalon, and one red, Triax; and a ball in the center of the map. Players grab the ball and try to take it to the enemy's base to goal...only it's not that simple. Players can die and explode into bits and pieces, some players can be sneaky and use power-ups to one-side you. As you play the game, you level up your skills and unlock different weapons and skills; from the starter auto-repair and basic blaster, to the all-powerful shock cannon and teleportation ability, there is a guarantee that there will be a specific ability and weapon combo that will fit your playstyle.
Now, the pros and cons:
+ Great narration/voice actor for narrating
+ Awesome gameplay
+ Great level variety
+ Good graphics without the cost of a high pc; my craptop could run this smoothly at 4 years old.
- AI has a tendency to gang up on you if you're closer than the bot with the ball
- A very tiny playerbase...save for private communities there isn't much in the way of a playerbase.
This game NEEDS to be more popular. It is amazing, fun, and engrossing. The fact that it looks like a really good game that easily trumps any full-price game of its caliber currently on the market, and costs much less as well, should make it a very popular title. It's sad that nobody plays this besides the few private groups out there, and there needs to be more players. I DEFINITELY, beyond a doubt, recommend this game to any passersby, just because of how fun it is.
