    I'm Ike and I approve this message.


    Seriously, been playing this game since Beta.  I'm NOT a FPS'r by any means.  I actually got my K:D ratio to 1.0... I was excited.  Then I stormed another base and that summarily dropped to .7.

    I enjoy the dogfights in the sky, tanking on the ground, and having people naturally form firing lines around the environment.

    There's only 3 fps you need

    This for the pvp, teamwork and unlike many "mmos" actually being massively multiplayer
    Dishonoured for the stealth play
    Farcry 3 for the skyrimesque re-imagining of fps

    Time to bin all those corridors and cutscenes console style shooters like halo 20, bf 56 and cod 6073426

    I don't understand why people keep lumping bf in with cod and halo, multiplayer is totally different

    I don't like this game at all.

    Instant Spawn. BAM! You get your **** pushed in by 20 tanks before you even know what is going on.

    Okay. I'll try again. Instant Spawn. BAM! You get your **** pushed in by 30 tanks.

    Let's respawn in a quiet location so I can gather my thoughts. Boring. Let's walk to the action. Wow! Good FPS! Getting 100 steady! I see a fort! Let me sneak around and check it out! <I'm at the fort now>. Wow! My FPS went from 100 to 30. Sweet! Another tank.


    This game is clunky and should be called World of Tanks 2...

    First there was golden eye. Then there was CoD. Now it's Planetside 2.

    Solid game for what it is. Performs well on max settings on my computer, only crashed once. Netcode is capable of performing well in huge battles. The cash shop is fair for an F2P title, selling only items you can unlock by playing and cosmetics, and an optional sub that increases exp gain by "25-50%", which is nice to have, but you can do without it. Time will tell how long this 'fair F2P' model sticks, as most of these games add more questionable items post-launch, take a look at GW2 for example.


    The video doesn't actually show how large these battles can get, and it seems mostly a 'tricks you can perform in our game' video.

    Every person i have gotten to try Planetside 2 LOVES it... except for my one friend that only plays WoW... He couldn't take it.


    It is everything that I had hoped Battlefield 3 would have been only way better than I thought it could be.
