It is 2030 and humanity is under siege from an un-paralleled threat. Society has embraced new technology allowing for insidious criminals of the near future to gain the ability to hack your body and thoughts – taking control of what you see, do, think and believe. Invisible attacks on the bodies and brains of humanity go almost un-opposed – with only the highly trained and deadly Section 9 task force standing in their way.

Section 9 is comprised of an elite force of cybernetically enhanced combat operatives dedicated to the defense of the human race. Join the fight as an elite cyborg and use your advanced firepower, Tachikoma Tanks and unique cyber skills to bring down cyber terrorists – in a connected world where your body is optimized and weaponized for combat. Dive beyond humanity as you upgrade and augment yourself into a walking weapon, capable of super human feats in this dystopian world inspired by “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex” the critically acclaimed series based on Shirow Masamune’s original comic “The Ghost in the Shell”.

Key Features:

Humanity Weaponized: Exceed the limits of mortality as you augment your evolved human shell with cutting edge technology engineered to kill. Fight as one of several distinctive operatives, each with a unique cyber skill ranging from heat seeking drones and deployable turrets, to therm-optic camouflage and infra-red vision.

Connected Combat: Strategically share your unique skills with teammates in order to turn the tide of battle in your favor. SkillSync enables smart combat with advanced battlefield tactics evolving the tactical shooter experience to a futuristic stage of warfare.

Mankind is Hackable: It’s 2030 and the citizens of Japan are under attack from sinister cyber terrorists attempting to corrupt society.

Why this game recieved so many negative reviews i dont know. This is by far the most fun i have ever had with an fps since call of duty modern warfare. The game doesnt have any pay to win features i could find and thats what makes this fun, everyone has a fair chance, and everyone needs to play to win.

Don't bother with this game.
TL;DR at the bottom.

Sniper rifles are widely redundant, Assault rifles at all ranges seems to work nicely.
The Demolition mode is better to be called CS:GO mode and the Team Deathmatch is basically "HurrHurr let's play CoD".
The Tachikomas add an interesting twist to the Conquest mode.
The skills are fun too, get just two people working together and a whole match can flip.
Looks nice, plays smooth.

The people that play it however? Toxic. League of Legends toxic.
I have no problem being beaten, it's rather in the name of the game. But the abuse you'll most likely receive for absolutely everything makes this an unenjoyable experience.
Get killed? "LOLNOOB"
Kill them whilst not bouncing through the air screaming "360N0Sc0p3!!11!1!!" ? "LOLNOOB"
Use an ability that's different to theirs and subsequently kill them? You guessed it.

I use "LOLNOOB" as a PG friendly way of describing the dreadful language used by the apparently 12 year olds that play this.

I enjoyed a fair portion on the 7.5hrs I put into this game but I'm not bothering with it anymore. If I'd paid for it, I would be asking for a refund.

TL;DR Don't bother, the other players are toxic.

If you want to play free fps with no p2w, this maybe suit you. Otherwise don't bother.

+ Not that much P2W
+ Cool maps and graphics
+ Skill required
+ Nice auto-balance
- Really weird Player movement control
- Snipers are not that usefull in this game
- Spawns are weird in capture mode
- Can't access to settings in Tutorial mode
- Generic Korea FPS
- Actually, it feels more weird than other korea FPS
- Well, is Nexon. So don't expect much.

Cannot change video details without it freezing and crashing, including switching from the default 640 resolution. I have had to shut it down and relaunch like 20 times in the 30 minutes i've played it.

It's like Call of Duty but worse in every imaginable way. If you like shooters like this then just honestly play warface because it's a better version of this...

The reviews on this game are harsh, if not unreasonable.
I think, that honestly, for a free shooter, this is better than most paid ones.
It has team deathmatch and such, much simalar to other shooters, BUT theres a difference as to the fact that each operative has a different abilty you can use in combat (such as thermal camo, seeker drones and such) without the use of a killstreak.
Another thing that I enjoy about this game is theres an option to pay for things in game, BUt THEY DON'T SHOVE IT DOWN YOUR THROAT AS THERE IS FREE ALTERNITIVES TO GET THE ITEMS, SUCH AS GETTING THE IN GAME CURRENCY.
There is plunty of weapons in this game to choose from, many operatives with various abiltys, and amazing graphics.
next thing i noticed that was diffrent from other shooters in that the "capture the control points" mode consists of battling two giant robots for dominace. and who doesnt like big ♥♥♥ robots.
overall, i give this game a 9/10

This has to be one of the most fun FPS Team vs. Team games I have played in awhile. Being a cyborg while killing cyborgs doesn't really get much better than that. Oh and have an arm that turns into a rocket launcher.

The guns are accurate. You have to control the fire rate to hit anything.

Side note:
I have read through the comments and it seems all of the bad comments are coming from kids. This game is a little less forgiving when you spray and pray or can't aim. You will die quickly, there are no magic buttons that you shoot at like CS:GO.

Not Pay to Win! That's the first positive.

Game is a lot of fun, although netcode issues are very visible. If you like playing the sniper game, make sure you buy the damage increasing barrel and the effective range damage rangefinder, or you will be useless.

It's free, what's the worst that could happen?

It's really easy to get into. Not super hard for people just starting off since you can use powers without a killstreak. Level up system is really rewarding for all the effort you put into it. It's free but im sure ill soon be putting some money into it just because how amazing it is.

Greatest beta game I own and is amazing for being only in beta. Runs great on my computer and is great for people who have bad internet connection; I get no to just the slightest bit of lag when my connection is worse than normal. This is a great game in progress witch is great even if you dislike anime. If you like anime or the anime ghost in the shell you will love this game

Hey ! This is a fps game COD type. Really arcade type and fast paced combat. Looks a little bit like CS:GO but you have classes and abilities ... TF2 AND CS:GO made a baby ?
This game is still in beta but it feels so optimized and experienced no lags.
Not lots of gamemodes but still lot of fun.
The only thing I dont like is the connection time :|
Overall i give 8/10 AND its totally free so you should try it !!!

I wasn't the biggest fan of the Anime, but this game is very fun. It relies heavily on using your cybernetic skills to gain an advantage. You start out with an OK weapon, then as you play, you can upgrade it with all sorts of parts that enhance things like ammo capacity, stability, and damage. This game plays like Call of Duty, but clearly has a strong emphasis on being aware of your environment and knowing when to use your skill. There are a handful of 'classes' to choose from, (Character customization would be nice, but it's neat that you play as characters from the anime...) this allows for a diverse team that can sync their skills to give them a huge advantage.

This game may be in Open Beta as of right now, but don'tbefooled, it's fully fleshed out and has plenty to offer. I look forwards to it's full release.
