    The game is not finished yet,I haven't seen all the available content, but the basic combat against bugs is rather boring. I think it is mostly facts they aren't challenging enough, there isn't enough of them in every wave and they look rather silly. The chosen ones patrols and events are harder and more fun, but it is still not enough to provide enough content to carry this game over time.

    Aint it amazing how mutch people can see from 1 video that shows 1 "rat" type starter mob the lvl 1 player comes across while traveling the 0.1% beginner part of the map.

    No matter how you try to spin it, it is just another mediocre FPS game.  If I am going to bother with an FPS I will do it with one of the AAA titles of which this is not one of them.

    The "cell shading" and art style in general did suffer from 75% of the art team leaving a few years ago.

    I played and test Firefall these few months.

    And yes, I still do not know what is the game going to be like because it is still in early Closed Beta. 

    All I can say with my experience in MMO that this game has a very big potential to blow away a lot of the other games.

    If not why would Garena have invest 23 million to Red 5 Studios if they think Firefall is not a money vending machine.

    Just give the company a break as its their first products and they have not fk anyone yet.

    [mod edit - let's stay constructive!]

    Anyway please Stop with the bitching and moaning just based on the Early Beta videos and testing.
    If you guys really got nothing nice to say just STFU.

    If we have nothing nice to say STFU? Dude its the internet. Also, why give the company a break? They have been working on this game since early 2006 and have already spent over 60+ million dollars.

    Right, it is just early beta, and the content you see probably is just 10%. And pvp they are tuning carefully now.It probably more fair to evaluate it after another 6 months.

    Considering there has not been a good quality FPS "AAA Title" for years now and most of greatest fps games came out from relatively unknown studios (In fact, pretty much Hard Reset and Serious Sam 3 are the only fps games worth mentioning ), the above quote sounds quite ...strange.

    No, they weren't spending players money...Went back and read up on it... the cost is probably close to costing 100 million at this point. They used their first 60 mil they got from Webzen up around the beginning of 2010. Around that time is when a bunch of people left and they drastically cut back on the scope of the game. At that point is when they sold to the9 and got a new round of funding.

    because the fact that it is an FPS set in a virtual world is meaningless.  virtual worlds are meaningless.  

    another quality post from Ozmodan.

    i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

    LOL, an FPS set in any environment is still an FPS and there are far better FPS games out there that are mulitplayer.

    Have you actually played the game?Because I have and sorry it plays pretty smooth for me and I would hardly say there are "far" better FPS games out.And not to mention that they do not even have all their features implemented yet.

    But I am sorry you wasted your money on it and feel jipped.

    there's extremely little penalty for jumping/flying and constantly moving at fullspeed.
    the crosshairs do spread a bit and become slightly less accurate for SOME (but not ALL!) weapons, but its not much of a factor to worry about most of the time.
    so no need for slow motion ironsights bullshit, and being motionless and crouching while shooting.  focus both on moving and aiming simultaneously, to your hearts content.
    this is no slow tedious military style crap.   expect Quake/Unreal type oldschool action.

     

    Makes sense -- Scott Youngblood (Firefall Lead Designer) also brought you Tribes (the original)!

    I've been in Beta for almost 4 months.  I'm one of the harshest critics on the boards.  I think it has a lot of potential and if it meets that potential it will be a great game.  Still if it doesn't, I still think it will be a fun game with some decent PvP and hectic PvE.  Only time will tell, I'll keep you posted.

  • thekid1thekid1 GroningenPosts: 789Member Uncommon

    I don''t know much about this game except it''s a mmo and a fps.

    So one question:

    How many people can fight each other on one map?

    @Renoaku

    1. Fps will be improved + my pc is 4 years old but it still runs perfectly fine for me, dunno why not for you

    2. That's what the cash shop is for ;)

     

    btw, planetside-style open world PVP will be added post-release ;)

    I played during this Beta and had the most fun I had with a beta in recent times!
