This game is absolutely awful.
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME
Unless you enjoy an FPS where people are stronger then you right off the bat and it takes a month to be at an equal footing.
It is just a generic fps.
i thought it was 3rd person shooter? Er however you describe a game that you aren't looking through the characters eyes.
Regardless, a lot of my friends were very excited about it. They all pre ordered it and played it for a few days. Basically none of them play it anymore at all. : /
I thought it was awesome at first, but then I realized you needed to grind for a solid day to actually have any customization choices. Thenit became a grindfest, but third person.
Not every shooter is going to be cookie cutter style with no progression. Be a little more open-minded maybe?
Okay, now I know you're trolling. It's an MMORPGTPS - it's a shooter, but it also has a level grind. Why don't you go play one of the hundreds of other non-progression shooters out there if you don't like Global Agenda? Lots of people do like it (i'm one of them)They shouldnt have an advantage at all.
Also it should take 0 days to get max level
Also the conquest is going to be a very interesting aspect if you are into that.
The RPG element is nearly extinct once you hit the required level.
So it is just a shooter.
So I have 3 days of the RPG part of the game and it turns into a shooter.
So I have to grind for 3 days to see if I fully enjoy the shooting part, which is the vast majority of the game.
Therefore, I can safely say that the game is barely an RPG because you say so yourself that it takes very little time to get to that level.
Therefore, I can safely say that if I want to play another class I have to do the same 3 day grind to see if I fully enjoy that class.
Therefore, I can safely say that it is NOT a balanced mix.
It repels the FPS players because they do not want to grind.
It repels the MMO players because the grind is too little.
2) It is, at max level, an attribute-driven shooter, yes.
3) No. It takes a little more than 3 days to hit max level; I've been playing casually for a while and I'm not quite there yet (What IS max level anyway?)
4) Sure, shooting is the majority of the game. But it's the same with Fallout 3. Are you going to call Fallout 3 a bad game just because the shooter part of the game isn't as good as most FPS games?
5) I didn't say anything. Perhaps you should read the posts instead of putting words in my mouth.
6) It's the same with any MMO. Were you really expecting something different?
7) Have you even really played the game, at all, for more than an hour?
8) I haven't really talked to any shooter fans who have played this game who didn't like it, so I can't really comment on this.
9) Everyone who I've talked to that has played it has said it's a pretty fun game, and is a solid MMO experience.
Plus Fallout had other content to have you immersed into the game. This game has some stupid robot chick that says "THE DEFENDERS, HAVE SECURED, THE OBJECTIVE"
Also, please justify the meaning of why I need to level by "playing casually" when it doesnt even take that long to get to the max level? Why cant I just be max level now? If it does not take that long to get there then WHY IS IT THERE? It is pointless.
There will always have to be SOME advantage of being a higher level. In Eve online it's having more ships to choose from or further specialization, for WoW it's having gear, for Global Agenda it's for having talent points and maybe a gimmicky item that hasn't been put in line yet with the others.
And to be honest, I think most of the items are really balanced. My clan leader played Global agenda and used the final sniper rifle on his recon, yet preffered the one you got before lvl10. I got my recon to lvl 13 on live, and I'm marksman and using my recon gun more than my sniper rifle because it fits my playstyle mroe and has gotten me more kills.
I played Robotics in beta and found that I had to completely change my loadout for different PvP modes and for PvE. Same with assault. To claim that "This game is terrible because people who have put more time into it are better than me!" Because this is a staple for nearly any MMO, and skill comes with the time you put it.
So if you hate so much about this MMO, maybe you just hate the MMO genre more than you hate just Global Agenda. What MMO's do you play and what do you like about them?
I mean, dont you think someone saying walking is the majority of HoN kinda missed the point of the game?
And yes, i agree that the shooting aspect in FO3 was somewhat annoying, but other stuff annoyed me more, like it not being canon, not being able to kill children and various other aspects. Still liked the game though.
The thing that annoyed me the most, however, was how important the radiated water were to the main storyline, Bethesda should have read just about any nuclear fallout survival guide.
Still, cool game, to an extent.
Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
