I'M PUNCHING YOUR SALAD!!!!

Its out on steam now, i tried it.
This game...this game is just plain awful.
It actually made me cry a bit.
Guns sound like pea-shooters, there is no feel of impact or feedback.
The guns also handle very inconsistently, you start with an mp5 smg that might as well shoot hugs and kisses.
I mean i thought BLRs hitbox and hitdetection problem was bad, man was i wrong.
You cant turn off friendly fire, there is no penalty for killing team-mates.
Have fun killing eachother instead the enemy team or griefers that just ruin the game.
The game looks like it would be right at home ca. 2005. Screenshots don't actually convey it properly because the worst part about the game are the animations, they might as well not have any.
Everything is the same color(s), enemies frequently blend with the environment, lack of discernable characteristics to tell apart your and the enemies team.
FOV locked in around 60, gives me motion-sickness.
MW3, except worse.
Run, shoot, get killed, spawn, get killed, spawn, run, kill someone, get killed by 300 grenades and an airstike, spawn, get killed by a guy with a better gun, spawn, kill a noob, run, clip out of the map and die, spawn...
There isn't any.
Turn it off.
The guns sound like they grabbed free low-quality samples of the internet.
Like to hear the same AI commentator commenting on the game for the 398472908347203 time?
What do you mean, no?
The customization and store:
All guns/mods are straight upgrades and are for purchase by humongous amounts of ingame currency (100.000+, a match gives 200-600) or station cash.
The customization doesn't do anything to mask the horrible animations also everyone still looks the same because only 4 facial models are available. Clothes need to be purchased by sweet $$$ or through grinding ingame currency (again, 50k+ for a pair of trousers).
A game this bad to be made in 2012 by a company like Sony is an abomination.
It is obvious that SOE just wanted to push a cheap piece of crap on the market to make some dollars.
If you want a similar but more polished experience: Blacklight Retribution, War Inc, AVA
All of the games have problems, but not nearly as severe as Bullet Run, and they are more consistent. War Inc and AVA actually look and sound better being from years past than this piece of crap.
EVE in 2013 - DUST 514, CSM8, Fanfest, 10th Anniversary, Uprising, Odyssey. Gonna be a good year :)

Not a fan, either. It was blatantly obvious that the combat and UI were designed for console, so maybe it plays better on a PS3.
filmoret: One thing I have never figured out is why the game devs hardly ever fix simple problems that arise. It is like they don't care about the pvp community.
Nitth: What makes you so sure its a simple fix?
filmoret: Because most of them are. Sometimes its just changing a number in a code string other times its creating a few variables. However none of them should take over a few hours of coding.

Apparently its a remake of a game named parabellum, which was dropped by gamersfirst. I don't blame them really.

SOE did not develop this game. They are only the publisher. Acony games is the developer. http://www.aconygames.com/

I played this game for about an hour and couldn't play anymore. SOE needs to take a harder look at the games they publish.
I am interested to see how well this game fares.

The game was originally called Hedone (http://www.fpsguru.com/article/50) Not sure why the name was changed, probably SOE wanted the name/game change. Regardless I am sad that I wasted an hour to download this game. Not going to go in to detail right now..but yeah the OP is right, it sucks. I'll recommend Tribes: Ascend or even Blacklight Retribution over this game any day of the week.
