SOE's taken a second crack at the MMOFPS with PlanetSide 2. Does the sequel succeed where its predecessor fell short? We offer our take in our official review!
PlanetSide 2 is SOE’s second crack at properly tackling a large scale MMOFPS since the release of the original PlanetSide back in 2003. Like its predecessor, PlanetSide 2 pits players in a three-way conflict over the resources and territory of the planet Auraxis. The three factions of the Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, and Vanu Sovereignty make their return and players can choose to align themselves with any of the three in their efforts for global dominance. If you’re a fan of the original PlanetSide or a long time veteran of the Battlefield series, you’re sure to be excited by what’s in store for you in SOE’s sophomore MMOFPS effort.
