One of our team's predictions for E3 2012 is that death would be a frequent visitor when playing PlanetSide 2. We've got a full hands on report on whether or not that actually happened. Read on and then leave us your thoughts in the comments!
One of the main criticisms of the original PlanetSide was that it wasn’t such a great shooter. If someone dropped you at a PlanetSide 2 station and didn’t tell you what it was you’d probably get the impression that it was a super slick and polished sci-fi Battlefield game. PlanetSide 2 is a shooter through-and-through. It feels as tight as the best AAA shooters on the market, which is exactly what it needs to feel like if it’s going to really make it as an MMOFPS. Persistence is great and all, but if you’re still getting a better shooter experience in your current favorite shooter you’re probably not going to care as much.
