Alright. So, to anyone who had the privilege of reading my first and only thread post in here, I criticized the heck out of this game and its devs. In all honesty, I did so without having played the game yet.
Well, I purchased it a few days ago off of craigslist for $50 and have put in enough hours to achieve a top 1300 rank as the Goliath, with a 13-1 record and have played at least 5 rounds as each of the classes in hunterville.
I have to say, I really don’t feel like this game is worth $60, or $50 for that matter. It is absolutely NOT because it isn’t fun. I knew going in, and prior to my other post that the game was fun. However, the complete lack of variety in ranked matchmaking is so staggering, I seriously can’t believe this game was worth $60 from the get go. I checked into Evacuation and essentially found myself playing another spin on the standard Skirmish, which is fine, but it just reaffirmed my thoughts on how this game lacks any more personality beyond that of 4v1 strat vs brute.
Again, the formula for the base game mode is very fun and extremely satisfying, especially while playing as the monster. But honestly, aside from the solid polish, there’s nothing more about this game that speaks to being anything but an online multiplayer experience that could have simply been sold in the PSN Store for a $45 price tag at most. It’s extremely limited in variety, and it’s pretty disappointing. That’s after putting in quite a few hours in the three days I’ve owned this game.
Now, since this game was sold at full price, I really cannot see why in the hell they accompanied said launch price with so much DLC. With a full price on this game, everything developed for this game within the first six freaking months of its arrival should have been available. I’m saying that strictly from experience. With how much this game lacks in content, and how much it costs right up front, I seriously find it saddening TRS decided to attach a price to items that should have most definitely been integrated into the game.
The game is fun. But people will get bored, and while you think that DLC they offered is somehow going to stymie that boredom, I urge to you reconsider, especially when thinking about buying a game like this in the future, where DLC, though “not needed” (in your opinions), should still have been demanded within the confines of an overpriced product. This community will be a ghost town when people start to realize this game has less to offer than any $60 ever should.
I plan to sell my copy long before the resale value dips below %60 of what it costs brand new, but I’ll steal a few more hours before hand. Hope you guys bought your as hard copy, or just played it smart and waited… continue waiting, that price will drop eventually!
Anyway, there’s my case, in a civil yet persistent manner. Yes, it’s an opinion, but this is a forum, where we share opinions, or even opinions about opinions. Go ahead, share yours!
