    "This Free-to-Play isn't worth your money"

    December 22, 2012   |   By wise_complexity

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    FPS multiplayer action that's free, and optional to pay for. If you play FPS games on a computer, this game allows a player to easily adapt. Though it doesn't really do you much of any good based on the cons.

    Cons

    The cons hurt this game badly.

    You wonder if the developers are even trying to do enjoy to combat the issues.

    This game is a haven for hackers, who use various cheats for insta-kills (like AimBot), there are other cheats allowing them to know exactly where you are located (xray vision), etc.

    Also (I know its a PC game), but the game should have gamepad support.

    Swearing, racial slurs, and other types of sick language get used at times too, its obviously used to get a rise out of other players, but you've been warned.

    Players make up rules on things that aren't disabled prior to game play (i.e. No Shotguns), so anyone coming into the game unaware will not know that unspoken want and will either be booted, swore at, etc. If its an item you've paid actual money for, you may not be too happy having someone tell you not to use it.

    The developer even glorifies the hackers in an ad. When I saw that, I felt that it was basically the seal of approval from the developer to the hackers.

    Summary

    Overall, if you want to play this game, (go for it and) test the waters before investing any money at all. You will be glad you did, because at times you won't be able to use them at all because are just that obvious at times and you may find yourself just shutting the game down (if it doesn't shut down based on someone booting you completely out of the game).

    So factor in these things, and see if its something you feel comfortable with investing money in. Personally, I've never spent a penny on CombatArms, its just a quick FPS experience, and sometimes you get "luck" to end up in a match without hackers. I'd rather spend my hard earned money on a game that doesn't require me to get lucky because no hackers are not in the game.

    If they actually cared a bit more about their game, we would see it with a decrease of hackers. I hope they are currently working on that, or the matches will continue to be worthless if a person can just hack the match in their favor. At this time, it just isn't worthy my dime.

    "Horrible Game"

    July 04, 2012   |   By Katanah26

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    The people are about the only good thing on the game. The graphics are okay. That's it for pros

    Cons

    Combat arms is not a game I would recommend to anyone. The hackers are uncontrollable not to mention they won't spend a dime to get a better hack shield. Lag is terrible most people can barely get in a game without being kicked out. They also ban people from the game just to do it. No reason why, nothing. This has happened to several people over the last year. Many of them PAYING players. They care more about money than the people. I understand it's a business I wish they would to.The graphics are disappointing, The over all game play is great as long as you don't lag (which never goes away) or the hackers don't boot you to desktop. Which ever comes first. The gp weapons are okay. And the pay for guns don't work right and are very expensive $30.00 a weapon.

    Summary

    In all I would NEVER recommend the game to anyone.

    "EXTREME dissapointed due to balance issues."

    May 13, 2012   |   By FpsVETERAN

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Offers a very diverse selection of game modes, weapons, and Game Modes. However, the cons that follow invalidate every single one of these.

    Cons

    UNBALANCED WEAPONS: Weapons PERFORMANCE diversity is god-awful and fusterating. The m416-CQB Is better than almost every weapon in every single way, along with weapons that have similar performance are the ONLY guns being used.

    LAG: The insecure net code ruins the game for people NOT running the most advanced technology available.

    BALANCE: Nx items such as specialist give money-wasting players 3X the speed of an average player, this item is now purchaseable PERNAMNETELY.

    Realism: Players will have to use innacurate hip fire to hit targets, and if you use attachable sights, your recoil will double into an unmanageable amount. (Coming from a firearms enthusiast.)

    FPS: Will suffer if you do not have a highly advanced computer due to unstable lobbies/servers/ect.

    KDR emphasis= Through past marketing, has some reason made this stat more important, which ruins the relaxive nature of this game with superfluous statistic competitiveness.

    Could list more but don't have space.

    Summary

    This game will be very appealing to players that are looking for a basic, non-refined gaming experienced. The many weapons and modes will offer excitement and fun for the average player. HOWEVER, players that wish to perform well in the game will be highly dissapointed unless the decide to spend money on the game, being that this factor will place them on top of any Non-Consumer player, no matter what skill level.
    Certain guns have no recoil, and high damage, making anything other than this completely inferior in the competitive environment.
    Removing specialist or at least creating a specialist-free option along with balancing guns like the M416CQB and buffing others like the ACR (low rate of fire, high recoil...but not even high damage?) would push my rating to a 4.
