The game is alright. It can be challenging. So I recommend you find another friend to play this with you before you get it. Mainly from what I have played you have a flying war blimp type ship. And you have to fend off waves of enemy planes. During the waves your ship will take damage in multiple areas; areas that you have to repair. So while you're not repairing your ship, you’re using different weapons on your ship to fight the enemy planes. So it is a vicious circle. In my experience right when I am done repairing one part of my ship, another part is damaged, so on so forth. So that is why I recommend you play with at least one other person. One person to focus on defending and another to focus on repairing. Otherwise you will have a hard time on your own. So with that said, I also can say the game will take on a very linear and repeatitive gamepley experience.

If you can get this game to run, it's quite a fascinating and dark experience with the right amount of tense repairing and blowing things out of the sky. For the sale price, I definitely reccomend this game.

Stop. Don't buy this game. This is NOT "Guns Of Icarus Online", which is probably the game you're here to buy. This game is three years old, has terrible graphics and equally bad gameplay, and is not the game you're looking for.

Again, let me reiterate. The game you are looking for is "Guns Of Icarus Online", not "Guns Of Icarus". If you don't want to take my word for it, look at the screenshots for both; the difference in quality is pretty clear.

Piloting, gunning and repairing all work really well and are fun, and with the right team it can get even more fun, but bad or mainly uncooperative teammates can change that. With an uncooperative teammate on your team, it can ruin the game, because it depends so much on teamwork. if one person refuses to do their job, you're going to lose. But with the right teammates, you can have lots of fun evading and outgunning the enemy.
