Ive been hammering this game lately, its great fun, unfortunately theres a few map bugs being heavily exploited, and hacks have begun to appear as with any fps, but provided they can plug the majority its going to be a success for Nexon without a doubt.

Viewing the video's on youtube i get an impression that this is a mish mash of CS and UT into 1 FPS. So how does it play for you exo?

Wedgeh, I just played. It's balls.

Imagine playing CS:S with worse graphics, bad lag, tinny gun sounds and sound effects and half size maps.

It basically is, very fast paced, run in like a lunatic and shoot at anything that moves. The netcodes not great, spray and pray is rewarded with nothing, frantically clicking off multiple single rounds works best as per usual. Theres a bit more to it than just aim, headshots are chance based even if your aimed at the head, and different clothing can put modifiers on things. Money for gear is easy to make, youll want to buy an ak and silencer most of the time, and the snipers if its your thing, 1 shot 1 kill anywhere cs awp style.

Its not pretty, its not accurate, but its fun, and i come top of the board most games so until im getting my ass handed by 12 year olds ill keep playing

You present a good case Ex. I played a game called Soilder Front before I played CS:S and I really enjoyed it. Very similar to CS:S in many respects and simliar to Combat arms also.

It was fun and enjoyable, but I really can't get the hang of this one. Just seems a tad clunky control wise and the guns don't feel great when shot.
