As we all know this game came out a couple of years ago and seems it has a niche following of gamers, some veterans have moved on and some have stayed, but I notice there seems to be a increase in gaming activity with new players just discovery this game now. Apparently this game has changed according to veterans and most calling it Firefall NGE now. We all saw that same thing happen to SWG years ago when they decided to make SWG into a themepark style mmo to keep up with WoW success.
I just recently revisited this game about 3 weeks ago once I saw it on STEAM, I had thought this game had been scraped like many mmo's we have seen and never kept it on the radar till now.
You can tell their still are veterans out there that either burned out or just got upset since the game changed on them and I can understand their anger with Red 5 Studios as I had with SOE / Lucasarts SWG.
All I can say is this, if you have never touched this game in the past and you are a new player to this game, you may like FF. First of all, it's F2P like many other mmo's out there today. If your into movies like Starship Troopers or like random shows like Defiance on SyFy network, you may like this game for that quick PEW PEW
The game does have many elements that made games like Rift, Planetside, Tabula Rasa, Tribes and even Auto Assault popular with it's niche players
I don't want to come off like a big fanboy of the game, because the game still has bugs in it and still feels incomplete on what it should be. I still get DC and freeze ups on my machine, but I keep pushing. But if your tired of swinging an axe and casting spells, this game could easily be a game where you get your quick fix in when your taking a break from your main mmorpg.
This scene from Starship Troops reminded me of a situation we were in just Squad Thumping for ore, we must of had over 24 players in the area participating just randomly killing bugs and chosen. PEW PEW
Is FF a good game? I think it is, it's actually holding my attention span for now, but you'll only know if its your type of game if you give it a chance. Like all mmo's, things are quite confusing in the beginning, but once you start to get the knack of the game, you may enjoy a little fight here and there, come time to time to scratch that itch with a MMO FPS.
