Its a decent shooteem up for a bit game just like Planetside. Nothing awe inspiring about it..nothing particualry great about it. Just there and kinda fun..shrug.

My only complaint with it has to do with damage output..imo vehicles particularly aircraft do not do enough damage especially to infantry. Infantry vs Infantry is fine. shrug.

Other then that it is what it is.

How can one make a revieuw when 50% of EU cannot even log in due to Launcher crashes :P
Welcome to Beta, enjoy your stay thanks for your money and we hope to fix the game within 1 year.

I know launch is hard to get done right, but man Prosieben + SOE are making it realy hard for themselves.

Loged in last night for 20 min then got booted and never got back in.
Tried this morning played for 10 minutes then got booted and still cannot log back in.

Sony forums are filled with rage :)

Bad bad day for Sony.

I am using the SOE launcher and client and that one isn't much better.

I was crashing every 20 minutes or so. Could almost set a clock on it for the next freeze and crash.

I would hope players of this game do not feel that their soldier is a “special snowflake”. :)

“If you’ve never played PlanetSide 2 before, or if you’re new or inexperienced with shooters, this can be pretty intimidating and even worse, confusing.”

- I can see a hand holding Tutorial being asked for here. The first step to making the game more easymode and he has only just started! SOE should not have to design this game for people who are not familiar with shooters. Just like other MMO’s should not design their game for people who are not used to point and click.

A MMO does not need to be a hand held experience from character creation to top level. The adrenaline rush of sudden combat, the surprise of the intensity of the starter experience. All this is nothing to the reviewer, only the concern that the game is not newbie friendly.

"There’s simply a ton going on all at once with all the players and vehicles and trying to make sense of the various peripheral objectives floating around your HUD at the same time can potentially be frustrating."

- Ok it it not kill ten rats. There is a learning curve, is that so bad? So bad you have to pan a game for it?

"SOE ended up making a change near the end of the test that promises to improve the acquisition of unlocks by roughly 30% in general."

- This does worry me, getting to end level more quickly is never good in a MMO.

Well, I'm not a big fan of fps  games, but I had a blast playing PS2 today.

Didn't have any problems downloading the game, and I never experienced lag or disconnectrions.

Was quite surprised about this because all the NA servers were high or full.

Can't say I would make this game my main MMO, but I believe SOE did a great job with this game, and I will be PvPing a lot on this game in the next few months for sure.


My PvE is already covered with other titles so this is a great addition to my stable of MMOs.

No need to purchase a game box so go download and decide if it's good enough for you.

I was in a beta for a bit and didn't really enjoy it, I downloaded it again last night anyway.

The shooting feels really floaty, I have been playing lots of counter strike recently so that won't help, but the shooting doesn't really have any impact at all.

The game also looks terrible on any settings below HIGH, not everyone can play on high and this game isn't for them. Even on the main menu playing at my native res the sample soldier is all blurry, everything in the world is too, its like playing the game in a drunken haze.

I will give it some more time and see how I can change the settings, I also have no proper idea how to upgrade myself yet and progress seems really slow.

It doesn't really have that instant pull, I spent the first 30 minutes trying to find the enemy, once I did we assaulted a base and that was great but I still didn't really get sucked in, I think it's the shooting and the death animation that really kill it for me.

I've been having a blast as well. Was playing again just now but the servers (or at least Jeager) went down. 

I did have some lag earlier but as far as disconnects or FPS issues, I had none (running GTX680, 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz, i5 2500k @ 3.8GHz, all settings maxed). 

I'll definitely be picking up a sub or at least putting some money into some unlocks. I generally hot shooters, but this has been amazing.

Been waiting for this game for years and years. I have just finished downloading PS2 over night, Now I have to pop out and paint a door, When I get back im going to Rip the VS and TR a new arse hole. :)

If someone asked me what my dream game would be and let me make it PS2 would'nt be far off.

Can't wait, Love it.

Been testing this game in beta for ages now so i knew what to expect but i was a bit shocked that after creatnig a cahracter it jsut plots you into the action lol :) still sometimes its best to throw someone in at the deep end hehe :)


WEll i as many others im sure where watching the count down and when it reached 0 hit their site pretty hard LOL.. no suprise the site had issues.. but SOE has also made the client available on steam so i just jumped there and started downloading :) a guy i play with has super fast broadband and downloaded it in like 10 mins lol and was then playing..


Took me a bit longer but when i did get on I had no issues creating a character and started to play :) and i had an awesoem nights worth of gaming, spend some of my Sony cash i had from the alpha squad and away  went :)

Took part in some truly massive battles that lasted hours :) when i first got in there was some lag issues but they got less and less over the night.

The guy reviewing it mentioned the character creation thing was not very good.. i dont think it suppsoe to be at the end of the day we are all just grunts.. there are items evailable in game via the shop tho, different helmets and and camo patterns if you want to spend your cash on that kind of thing.

Loving the game. Seeing a large air battle happen overhead while a tank brigade rolls through a valley below, tracer fire piercing the night sky, Galaxies hot dropping troops behind enemy lines. It's a thing of beauty.

I'll be playing it for years to come.

Go to Planetside2 forums and do a search - there is a .dll file you can add to your game directory that may fix your issue.

Crashing wasn't my main problem, it's the terribly poor optimisation. I was playing on a very high spec rig with a lightning fast connection and there are times im down to 15-30fps...thats rediculous and borderline unplayable for any FPS.

Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

I did crash twice over a period of about 8 hours of gameplay. I should note that I did not crash once during the last three weeks or so of beta. Perhaps it had something to do with the server load or that fact that much was added and changed since beta ended.

On a positive note, I had a lot of fun. I am not a normal PS1 vet but I did play in the PS1 beta. PS2 looks and plays a lot better then the older cousin. With that said, it is not exactly the same game. Base capture mechanics are different (simpler) and the "tug-of-war" system of conquest is a bit different, but it all is still fun.

In a nut-shell, I see this game doing well if the dev team stays committed to fixing the bugs and holding to balancing the factions in SMALL amounts.

May i kindly ask, why MMORPG (sic!) does reviews on shooters, which are not even near any roleplaying game?

I'm not convinced that getting dropped into a fighting zone the very first time you start the game is a good idea at any stretch.


At this time, the mouse speed configuration is ****. It's meaningless. getting dropped right into the zone with your facing flipping 5 times360° for 5 millimeter isn't fun. getting insta one shootet from a 17+ sniper while trying to lower the setting isn't either.


It's a shooter why the hell can't you verify the mouse settings before beeing thrown into the fray as fooder.


3 Days later i rack up 30 kills in 2 minutes sitting on top of a base picking drop ships "drops" shooting people who seem to be new to, since 90% does not shoot back and i feel bad for them.


Now when i log in, i start out at my base instead of getting **** dropped as free kill like the first time on character creation.


It's not gamebreaking but stuff like this really makes you wonder.

Im unsure where i stand with this game (PS2), i played for 2-3 hrs last night and really didnt get the feeling of enjoyment...but also did not get bored. It seems this game maybe due to being free has attracted the worst kind of gamers...I for about 30 mins struggled to do anything aside from die to people within the deoply point killing their own team/side for troll kicks. Eventually i did get to go out and explore/kill was doing well until i ran into a large group lol, but thats expected. I have also noticed that the non paid for weapons....seem to lack compared to the paid ones, simply just not nearly the same damage. IDK...for me it will stay installed and occasionally login to play for an hr or so, but i have better things to do and better games to play than let my self get frustrated playing a game designed for spoiled rich kids :).

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.

It replicates it not at all. I doubt that you went to war without training first. After I chose my head, I dropped into the game, took a few steps and was suddenly dead. Respawned, took a few steps and was dead again. Respawned, found my health gauge, took a few steps and was dead again. Respawned, found the mini-map, saw some symbols on the mini-map, took a few steps and was dead. Respawned, saw some other players, tried to determine if they were friend or foe and was dead. Turns out they were foe. Anyway, after a quick 9 deaths I logged out. That was too overwhelming for this 1st time player.

I think I'm pretty well cut out for clicking mouse buttons, and I doubt SOE designed PS2 so that only ex spec wf guys should be able to play it. I do think they need to drop in a training area to start in like PS1 had. Would be nice to learn the interface before getting face planted.
