pcgamer.com's Planetside 2 review.

"Dogfights in the frigid air, gunfights among the trees of a dense jungle, tanks duelling across the plains of a red desert: like stars in the night sky, PlanetSide 2 is beautiful."

 

I tend to agree. I may even go a bit higher. PS2 is the evolution of the FPS.

No, it bumped the mmo up in a big way, but did nothing for the mmorpg. I think you are confusing the two.

I'm a player not a gamer.

pc gamer was also related to the control of beta keys selling copies of the magazine to get one... Go figure

75% of the people playing the Beta were not from PCGamer keys.  Every website that talked to the people, the FB page, website, and every event that they had, they gave away beta keys.

 

I seriously doubt that the fact that they had keys to give away swayed their scoring. It is a fun game with tons of potential to be a seriously long lived game.

its a fun game but ballance is far far off due to some idiotic nerfs right after beta but its fixable if they can get a grip on it..else the game will die as fast as APB.  other then that its a shooter..nothing more , nothing less. always fun to jump into for a hour untill the said ballance issue's  start anoying you.

My enjoyment of the game increased tremendously when i got into my outfit, when I was running around by myself I was bored and annoyed.  Once I got into the outfit and went through some of their training and started running in platoon with them, I started to have a great time.

 

Who you play with, I think, is going to have a BIG effect on how much you enjoy the game.

First mmo in ages to actually deserve its 9/10 score

Gw2 was more of a 7 or 8
Swtor was more of a 3 or 4

I'd give TOR a 7 at least, I enjoyed the heck out of the pve and story (though I think TSW's story and voice acting was superior) while leveling up, and doing a bit of raiding at 50.  PVP, crafting and long term end game was where it fell appart.

It is a good game, but not as good as the age old Planetside 1. I've been in PS2 beta since not long after they started the beta stage and I didn't spend a lot of time playing it, and I still don't play it all that much on live (I actually don't play ANY game that much right now) but I have bought a fair amount of weapons and upgrades.

This is the fundimental problem for me as well, PS was a better game.

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

$500 Backer to 2014's Top New MMO... The Repopulation!

It might be leading the pack of MMOFPS's now but it still has aimbots and glitces like every other FPS to ever come down the pipes. I've been playing it off and on for the past 2 weeks and I've already encountered 2 aimbots which isn't a lot but if they exist, they will cause havoc with the legitimacy of the game much like what happened with APB.

The true character of a man can be seen when they are given power.

Very generous review imo. PS2 isnt that good of an FPS at all, as an MMO i guess the map size and huge battles give it its due, but this is a game for clan gamers, solo players and small groups of 2-4 usually dont last to long as the gaming clans usually camp the hell out of areas boosting their XP. I would still prefer BF3, BF2 hell even old school HL and CoD are better FPS games than PS2.

PS was better than PS2 ?

At launch ?

Or after the first 3 years ?

Or currently, after 9 years or so of additions ?

I liked somethings better in ps1 like bridge battles.

But ps2 beats it for scale of players and we now (some of us) have the internet connections to play it.
