Okay, I know what I'm setting myself up for hate by posting a positive Crimecraft review on this site. In fact, after trying this game when it first came out I totally understand why it gets so much bad publicity.
When it went to Steam a few months back I tried it again...and although it might have improved, I rage quit again because of the ridiculously long queues and high lag due to the lack of servers to accomodate the initial offer on Steam.
A week ago, after hearing that they added a few servers (2 in US now and 2 in EU) I jumped in again. Wow, what a dramatic turnaround. Except for the chat window...which is a perpetual nosedive into the slums of the internet...I have very little negative to say. I love the art style, the PvE Bleedout Campaign is worth far more than the price of admission, and the new expansion/update that's about to come out looks, at face value, to be a BIG win.
Here's a couple links to the announcement and the 50% monthly sub deal they're running through Nov 28th (you can still play for free if you prefer, but $2.50 to $5 seems pretty cheap for a crap load of new content).
