My Summation of PS2:


1. If you like Battlefield you will love this game.

2. If you like COD you will REALLY love this game

3. If you are a fan of teamplay strategic shooters you are going to think this is the best game ever.

4. If you are looking for something more than just a shooter, you are going to love this game.


Are there issues with it? Sure. But the game is totally playable. If you have a mid level computer you will be able to play it fine. I am running a AMD quad core and a Geforce 560 and i get 50-70 fps in light battles and 20-40 in heavy battles. And by Heavy battles i mean  300-500 people in view dozens of vehicles, air and land, and with everything on High with a few things on Medium.


The #1 thing you should do though is stay with your squad. Find one that is doing something and just follow them. Or join one of the open Outfit Squads. They usually do things semi-organized. It makes a big difference when you are just getting started.


Either way, for FREE you should at least give it a shot. They have lots of new stuff coming that will help the newer players too. And don't be afraid to ask people if you are not sure. Most will help you.

because its a MMO, more of a MMO than many recent so called MMOs

theyve also reviewed games that arent mmos like diablo 3 and swtor ;)

Having spent 0 time in the beta and jumping into the game with absolutely no knowledge it was a little overwhelming at first. For people that are confused give the game time, I guarantee that within a few hours you will be flipping objectives and playing with the best of them. Overall I think so far the game is pretty fun but if you dont have a dedicated group I don't think you will enjoy it as much.

I've never liked FPSs before but I love this game.  I haven't had any problems with crashes and neither has either of my sons.  That's on three different computers all using three different video cards, MBs, etc.  It does appear to be quite a grind to get new items if you don't buy them but it can be done.  You can't expect a company to work all this time to build a new game and make nothing from it though.  I'll end up spending a bit of money I'm sure.


I recommend you give it a try.  There is nothing to lose.

Listen, look at the map.  There are "instant action" drops that put you RIGHT into combat.  Highlight the area hex's... it'll say... enemy detected, enemy platoon detected, no activity detected.

The United States in WORLD WAR II was in the war but how many major fights were in Iowa or Arkansas?  None.  So why would you DEPLOY there?  You'd deploy to the action.

There's a timer on the drop... if you drop down and there's very little fighting you could be stuck out in the open. 

Its like traveling in DayZ, could take forever and a day to get to the next "hotspot" and that skirmish could be over as well or it could be one single newb just fliping stuff... then you have to trek again.

warp to HQ and buy a mosquito.

Nah, buy a reaver...because screw the TR.

"Rock's longest, strangest trip, the Grateful Dead"

I've been playing almost all day today, never crashed once, stellar performance and SUPER FUN AND INTENSE COMBAT. I've played CoD and BF a lot, and I unfortunately has to say, they doesn't come close.


If a FPS developer is thinking of doing something a bit more original, something that is not the standard 15vs15 lobby game, they should definitely look at PS2. As an PS1 vet, I can say that I'm definitely not disappointed. 8,5 / 10 for me.


(These are all my personal OPINIONS, read them as such.)

Sandbox is your only hope for a decent mmo ;)

They should have added resource nodes we could fight over and collect from. Add some type of alien life form hostile to all three factions to fight with as well. This game really needs more depth. I never played PS1, but coming in new this just feels like an oversized BF3 game. But im still exploring, time will tell if this is a winner.

If you have played any type of shooter game before this, i dont see how it can be confusing to people. Same set up as most my fps games. In time the controls will feel like second nature to them.

PS2's controls are smooth, animations are pretty standard for an FPS these days (CoD anyway), and the world looks beautiful. My computer is like 4 years old, and it's running this game smooth, and it looks amazing.

That being said, I haven't gotten entirely into the gameplay yet, as I've only done Infantry stuff, and I'm only BattleRank 2, and it feels like there's not enough to it to keep me wanting to play for more than possibly an hour at a time, if that, and I definitely don't see me logging in at all a month from now, if not a shorter period.

Still, I'm gonna log in for a bit now and try to figure out all the little details involved, and possibly find a better way to play than I am currently.

Aviggin, get in a good squad that is working together. I was on for a long time last night and next thing i knew it was 3am!!!  


Finding an outfit or squad that can not only give you some help but do something productive is the key.

Had another awesome game last night :) went as NC this time around so starting from scratch on another server. Will ahve 3 characters in the end one of each faction :)

Anyway I have had no performance issues at all, from waht I have read on the forums some people with ATI cards have had issues.


Hopefully ATI will bring out better drivers soon enough..

PERFORMANCE EUROPE servers are not managing the load, unplayable. This is a FP Shooter after all. Warping teleporting flying vehicles stutter flickering. It's very poor peak time.

I am having a blast with this. There is a slight learning curve, but once you figure out the objective and figure out a role best for you, then the game is just good fun.

My biggest gripe is the chat system. It's confusing with everything going on around you. There is no faction or area chat that I can see. Most just /yell everything. The squad chat is hard to access quickly during fighting unless you are on that tab. This kind of turns the game into a zerg mentality instead of using strategy (follow the horde and pew pew pew).

Over all worth a download and maybe a few $ spent in the cashshop if you have it to spend.

What do people want? Shooting tin cans on a range as the first thing they do? If there was a real penalty for dying I could understand players concerns but there is not. I have not played the game, I never play betas. I say that with conviction as there never are any sort of penalties these days. Fast learning curves should not be an issue.

The massive confusion of the initial drop and first fight is the best part.   That best replicates what war is and I loved it.    It was one of few times in a game, let alone a MMO that I felt a "rush" from the first second of the game.  


I understand for some people this is to much, but that is the difference between a soldier and a civilian.   Soldiers thrive on that, civilians dont.   Not knocking civilians, as I am one myself now thanks to injuries from my time in the service, but not everyone is cut out to fight.   And that is what sums up PS2, not everyone is cut out to play this game.


First, I tend to find most people who volunteer they served on the Internet, unsolicited, are trolls who aren't even out of high school yet and shame the true men and women who do serve in this country with their lives. It's kinda like the guy who claims he was in Vietnam who brags how many kills he got... almost everyone knows the guy who actually did get those kills ain't bragging about it. 


That aside,  I'm cut out for Modern Warfare 3 and Team Fortress 2, but when it comes to this game, I'm sorry, but when the introduction is a canned "pump up speech" followed by instant deployment into some desert, only to be headshot 3 seconds later, respawned into an area you don't know, only to get spawn-camped by a legion outside your red bubble... I'll happily say this game isn't for me. 


What a crappy new player experience.

If you aren’t overwhelmed with the experience and manage to get a hang for what’s going on, the beauty of the game shines through particularly well. At least so far, SOE has succeeded where the original PlanetSide fell short: PlanetSide 2 is first and foremost a solid shooter.
