OP  11/20/12 5:36:14 PM#1

Planetside 2 is certainly the best mmofps I've played. I really like the world size and the overall feeling of a gigantic war - something you can't really feel in a standard FPS. However, the movement and combat is just so clunky.

The game looks nice. The graphics and performance would do well for a EverQuest-type MMO. However, it's not at all ideal for a FPS.

I'm playing on an i7 920 with an ATI HD Core 7850. It's not an extreme system, but a good system none the less. Getting sporadic 20-60 FPS just isn't fun. Dumbing down the graphics doesn't help much. Moreover, playing this game on low detail is not a good idea, as it still runs bad while looking like a 10 year old game.

I know comparing this to Black Ops 2 is just silly, but a constant 200 FPS via BO2 just provides fantastic and fluid combat (I know the human eye can only render so much, but you can most certainly feel extremely high FPS with the mouse). Once technology allows perfectly smooth MMOFPS combat, it will be a ton of fun.

The game is cool, but I would be upset if I had purchased it.

 its easy to make a non-dynamic map and draw 16 /32 folks and some random pre-render textues and maintain top fps , its hard to draw  200+ folks + 50 tanks and have them all shoot and move about in a open non-path-restricted area thats 2times the size  "normal" fps games in a open play world the size of ..?....100 battlefield maps? (egual 10000 cod maps)

60fps is more then fine

PS1 was a far better game and wasn't ahead of its time. PS2 isn't bad but it doesn't live up to the greatness of PS1.

8gigs ram

quad core 2.8ghz

Windows 7

5770 HD ATI Radeon 

 

Worse computer then yours and I run at medium 30-60 FPS.... 30 FPS when I'm in a large scale battle. Human eye can only see 30 FPS, good times.

 

Have you tried game booster? HAve you tried tweaking windows?

With that kind of logic there's no point to mmos in general, just do raids to get gear to make the raid you just did easier.

everything ive looked at and read from "people in beta" mind u, not people who have not tried it but pleople currently playing the game, they all say that no matter how supped up their computer is they get low frame rates, 40 or less... and they all say that u cant play the game well at such low rates.   

Will this get fixed at some point, who knows, i know i dont know .. but i wont play or try it till i read that its no longer the case and you can get decent frame rates.

Even sandbox MMO's have a purpose. Star Wars Galaxies had plenty of purpose.

This game doesn't have one. Sadly.

It's like many already said. It's just a larger Battlefield FPS game. That's it.

You just flip bases with your enemy to progress you character. There is no pride nor any purpose for keep hold on your captured bases and defend it, as during off hours the oponents will ninja them back. Warhammer Online DeJaVu anyone?

They should have taken a "Dune" approach, by incorporating necessary resources in the game for the factions to fight over!

Resources you need to be able to supply factories and build tanks, trucks, planes, defence systems, walls, etc.

This game would instantly have more purpose and it's actually a lot more fun to take over a base, have it half destroyed due to the fighting and then have to scramble every resource and manpower to rebuild the base, the walls and defences, etc.

 

This game could have been so much more. Like taking the best from DAoC and EVE Online.  /sigh

 

I don't say the game isn't fun in it's current form. Just not as a MMO to dedicate a lot of time on, like you would with other MMO's.  Just jump in once and a while to get your PVP fix.

And sadly.... I think this will be the same for many... which in the end will hurt SOE financially.

As right now.... for example, I do not see any reason to subscribe nor any reason to buy anything in the store either.

Sandbox is your only hope for a decent mmo ;)

11/21/12 3:52:43 AM#12
Tried ps2 today. Large map, but only like 10% of the map is used. So its no more than a large Battlefield map. So no, not much different than your average shooter. Thought there would be more to it since they slapped MMO on the front of it. Which this is not a MMO. Takes more than a few hundred people on a server to be a real MMO. Ill keep playing, as I want to explore it a little more. But not head over heals for it. Things may change.

How does that make this game a sandbox MMO? Can you build a city? Can you create content as player (chosing to go west or east is not creating content)? Can you develop your character in any way you can? This game has nothing to do with a sandbox MMO.

I'm not saying that it is a bad game. But just very restricted in what you can do in it. The person you quoted just realised that there is not enough variety in it for him.

Tehre is a reason why it's called MMOFPS (not MMORPG). MMO aloen doesn't have to do much with sandbox term.

 

Everyone should have in mind tho that PS2 is mainly a shooter. The rest is built up on top of that. It's put in a massive world which allows many people to play in. This gives the right to an MMO prefix... Which further opens up room for big scale strategy for clans. Only on top of all that it has an rpg element (unlocking weapons and skills).

 

But yeah considering people slap sandbox on pretty much everything these days that's pretty acurate actualy.

If there was an -fps sandbox- than Planetside2 definitely is that. (ofc in it's own boundries of being a shooter!!)

unlocking weapons and skills doesnt make it an RPG either, oddly enough

Not sure if sarcasm, but jsut to be sure, it's not really odd is it.

I mean if you mount wings to a car it won't become an airplane and people won't call it an airplane.

But if it makes more people buy it (ie people like it) than why not.

The regular shooters out there (bf, cod, etc) already had this for years. Nothing new. Move along. Move along. ;-)

With that kind of logic there's no point to mmos in general, just do raids to get gear to make the raid you just did easier.

Not really.

In standard MMOs you win your gear and progress through tiers, you have a feeling you are building up on something (better gear + harder raids), there is a sense of achievement.

With PS2 there is no feeling of achievement, you win a base, and you lose it 5 minutes later.

You win the next base and you lose it 5 mins later, and so on.

That is ok for a Multiplayer game like CoD or BF, but for a MMO is a pointless waste of resources

PS2 is fun for  the first few hours, but then you think, oh CoD Black Ops 2 is out, why on earth should I play this game over that?

IMO save the money and buy Black Op 2, much better game.

You win the next base and you lose it 5 mins later, and so on.

That is ok for a Multiplayer game like CoD or BF, but for a MMO is a pointless waste of resources

PS2 is fun for  the first few hours, but then you think, oh CoD Black Ops 2 is out, why on earth should I play this game over that?

IMO save the money and buy Black Op 2, much better game.

 Yeeaaah first of all Planetside 2 is completely free, that means aquire as well ,and comparing PS2 to COD Black ops LOL yeah just constantly send in your killstreaks ok thats fun, then the game ends YAY Super fun! Why the hell should I play planetside 2 when PS2 hasa persistant FPS world , a team based game, nah I'll go grab me some COD and deal with the hackers!

But your right, not everyone is going to like or understand PS2 , it's just alittle to hardcore for you at the moment.
