while i havent played more than the trial, i have to ask: why would you care about the story and setting? its a multiplayer only game, you dont go around docking points from halo or cod's multiplayer cause they have no story behind them.
You know, not every story has to have a deep and compelling story, just like not every movie has to have a deep and compelling story. Sometimes we play/watch them for a deep story, but sometimes we do it for mindless fun. It's variety, which is the spice of life.
I don't know how you guys gave it a 3/5, TBH.
It's the dullest game I've seen in a long time. Generic coverbased combat, where you're not even allowed to move on your own, you just have to walk from pieces of cover to cover.
Jetback based multiplayer shooter with zero depth that quickly gets repetitive and boring after a couple of games? Who on Earth thought a Shattered Horizons clone was a good idea? And why does the article describe it as "innovative"?
