    Although I didn't really enjoy the low grav sequences of Crysis I will be willing to give this a shot.

    Internal? :sigh:

    Sounds like another brilliant concept marred by lacklustre decision-making. I can understand the thought process behind the lack of weapon types, but did they really think it would make for exciting gameplay?

    Looks really nice, but FFS the fewer classes there are the more you need more guns! Might give it a try if I can find a few spare hours.

    youd be suprised, with everyone fighting on an equal ground it makes the game a lot more tactical and exciting.

    cant beat a stealth kill ;)

    I always thought they should make a game of Inner Space! ;)

    Fixed.

    I was a beta tester under NDA for this game, I had some fun, too bad there are only 4 maps, they look great especially the ISS. I love looking at the Earth and noticing we are moving.

    The lack of different classes means the game is better balanced and requires more skill and patience than your average multiplayer shooter. Well worth the money and with free maps/content promised, should only get better. Couldn't stand the gameplay of TF2 or L4D, this is far better imo.

    That is called "Understanding Yourself", I am sure you can find many workshops and gurus to help you with this, but it is all up to You.

    "There's also a stealthy silent-movement feature but we didn't feel it added a great deal to the gameplay."

    From reading the review it is obvious that you never understood what makes this game at least a 9, maybe a 10.
    Play for another month and review it again.

    I have a good vocabulary, what does "minim" mean? Is that secret-handshake graphics terminology? Maybe a UK only word? (If you need someone to check your copy, hire someone)

    Yours in 7 = 9 Plasma,

    Just remember the 3 S's:

    Shift for down, space for up and **** for I pressed E by accident.

    Not too sure you guys got the time to appreciate the point of ShatterredHorizon's MP to be heavily tactics based, but otherwise an alright review.

    It definitely does take some getting used to, and not just to fly around, but shooting, as attaching to walls is the best way to get gunned down, can't play this game like a normal shooter, you'll get shot to pieces within seconds.

    I played this for an hour. Its pretty good. Guns are pretty lame though. Tactical wise, stay in groups and cover each others backs.
