Global Agenda is on sale from now till the 31st of may for 30 dollars, (25% off).
Global Agenda is an alright game and personally for a one time fee of $30 (normally 40) its worth the price. I've gotten almost 200 hours of gameplay out of it and yes, the game in its current state is very linear, but if you're willing to take it for what it is its actually quite fun. I've spent 50-60 dollars on lesser games. Its great to be able to sit down for a few minutes and have a good time with a match or two and the gameplay doesn't really seem to get stale. The game modes maybe, but the core gameplay, no.
The PvP is pretty intense and although the match maker has its faults its still pretty decent overall. The PvE is a mindless grind of reused maps that I could only imagine was/is a place holder as I believe they ran low on funding but has alot of potential if they incorporate it properly as does the rest of the game. It seems that this game is really still in beta and I believe launch is actually the 1.3 patch but they had to get it out there to at least get SOME income. They are also limited by the engine they chose. The unreal 3 engine doesn' really suppose "massive" game play but I believe it was the right choice seeing as developing their own engine would have been buggy, expensive, and timly. Time and money certainly not things they had. Its not easy for a new developer, but I strongly believe in them.
The best thing about this game has got to be the developer. Hi-rez takes such an active and hands on approach with (mostly) listening to their customers and attempting to deliver. In a market where most MMO companies are jaded and seem to not have a clue or are strictly focused on profit this is rather nice to see and I feel its worth my small investment to promote. Sadly its hard out there for an independent developer and they're not having an easy time nor are people cutting them much slack. Considering what Hi-rez is they've produced an extremely impressive and fun product.
I as many other eagerly await the coming 1.3 patch that will take Global Agenda from simply a third person shooter to an MMO. 1.3 part one is expected in a few weeks but sadly doesn't offer much other than some new toys and a revamped UI, gear system, and some AvA changes. In the coming months us players will be able to look forward to open world PvE and PvP. I just hope they're able to deliver properly, but once all is said and done. Global Agenda should be a hell of a game for 9.50 a month and at least its not another WoW clone.
