Just thought I would spread the word for this little known game with my own mini-review. The trial is virtually a complete game except your lacking 2 inventory spots out of 6 and some online content (player stats and unlimited replay download) it's $9.99 to buy the upgraded account but the trial is indefinate and you can play on all the servers so an excellent way to try and buy or just download and leave as is. I was reccomended this game a few weeks ago and as its free I thought it would be good for an hour or 2 of gameplay. Its now up there with my favourite games ever and I have actually bought the premium account and the boxset to give the developers my support as I believe it really is that good. The UK fanbase also seems very strong as everytime I have logged in to the multiplayer server (which the whole game is about, there is no singleplayer although you wouldn't want there to be) its been fairly full for such an unknown game. The game is a fantasy game with 2 traditional races of beasts and humans. You have one player as the commander who researchs technology and buildings, does magic spells to his players advantage and is overall in charge of the ultimate strategy. Next come squad leaders in the hierachy who have the ability to place spawn points and give commands to there 3 other squad members aswell as playing as a normal warrior player (like a fps/rpg). Finally are your average warriors with no responsibility except to kill the enemy. During the match you level up and able to increase various stats like strength, agility, intelligence and you also carry an inventory to buy approx 20 different items (this may seem low but your inventory is reset after every match and its more then enough to ensure that there isn't a stark contrast between people just joining the server and ones who have played for 30 minutes in the match and fully levelled up). You can also use your money to buy units, there are 4 free units and 3 paid for units and they different for each race. Finally when you kill sufficient enemies you can sell their souls to collect hellspawn units which there are 3 available and are all demons which are universal to both teams. As games go the graphics are average but as a free game who cares I would say it was around par with early WoW. The community is friendly althoug there are always a few idiots however the few times I have played as command I told my other players that I was still a noob in the role from the beggining and didn't get any aggy just advice from everyone else. As a general foot troop player it doesn't matter if your a noob providing you stay with your squad even the best of players can be taken out with a small organised mob.
