"Works on XP only, constantly crashes on Vista and 7"

October 19, 2012  |  By ARREB

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Good graphics, plenty of weapons and its free.

Cons

The game is great but it only works with XP only. It constantly crashes with Vista and Windows 7 and more then likely crash with Windows 8. You usually only get 1 game in before it crashes.

Summary

The game is great but it only works with XP only. It constantly crashes with Vista and Windows 7 and more then likely crash with Windows 8.
This is a problem that the company can not seem to fix since 2011 so bugged for almost 2 years now.
It has great graphics and I love it but since me and millions of other people use Windows Vista and 7 we are out of luck.
Will be a great game when they get it compatible with windows.
Until they actually find a fix which since they cant find one in 2 years more then likely they never will i would play another game that is stable.

"Good game, Bad company."

June 30, 2012  |  By Olauff

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

*Many weapons, and some modifications
*Many players of all skill levels
*Many Maps of all sizes and types
*Good player based community (Forums/CBL)
*Ranking is challenging and acually reflects the payers skill level
*Exelent clan system.

Cons

*There are no Iron sights you have to spray fom the hip with almost all weapon types
*The scopes are mislabeled: ACOG is actually red dot, There is no ACOG scope that you can actually buy.
*Nexon communicates very little with thier costomers, even on forums.(no costomer service)
*Nexon Keeps adding overpowered unrealistic weapons. The weapons aresenal is completly unrealistic and imbalanced
*HACKERS ARE EVERYWHERE.
*There is no system to delete inactive accounts, so all the good player/clan names are taken
*You can buy a special licence called an elete moderator pass, with allows you to kick any player for any reason. It is abused regularly
*You can also buy a specialist licence or "Spec" that allows you access all kinds of overpowered weapons. Most of these these weapons are more unbalanced than some hackers.

Summary

Nexon has a primitive understanding of military jargon, or weapons in general
Any one with even a little background knowledge of the army, or weapons will hate how Nexon completely ignores logic. Te game itself is actually great I've been playing for 2 years and shall continue to do so, but Nexon's ideas or "Improvements" re makng it worse and worse. Just for the sake of argument I will give one example:

Nexon's large selection of weapons includes many weapns both popular, and odd. One old favorite is the G3. The G3 fires 7.62ammo Same as many NATO weapons incuding the M-14, and M-417. Nexon has all of these guns, and are proud of it. But Nexon's representation is so far of: despite all 3 weapons shoting the same rounds thier recoil and damage marks are all over the chart. The G3 shoots more like and M-16, with very little recoil. The M-14 shoots like an M1 Grand, not very far from the truth, but its rate of fire is lower than the real full-auto M-14. The M-417 has no recoil at all. How does a gun that shoots M-14 rounds have no recoil? Considering all the no recoil weapons cost real money to buy from nexon it makes sence. The only one I listed that isn't Over Powered was the standard M-14, witch hapens to be the only one listed that is "free" to play. Nexon want money, they are ruining the game just to gain a few extra $$$ at the end of each year.

"Full of Hackers & Questionable System Security"

February 07, 2012  |  By Keymaster2

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Combat Arms is a free to play FPS Game produced in South Korea and published by Nexon First reaction to the game would be good graphics for a free fps and nice range of maps and weapons. Excellent clan system. There are a range of free weapons when you start the game which increases as you gain experience and you can purchase NX game currency to buy more sophisticated weapons.

Cons

Unfortunately Nexon's record of security is not good. In 2011 Nexon's sister game Maplestory was hacked and 13 million ID's were obtained by the hackers. Hacks to cheat in Combat Arms are openly for sale on the Web and it is very difficult to know whether you are playing a clean player or a cheater. Periodically systems are tightened to try and reduce hacking but each time the obstacles are overcome. Nexon have recently taking to auto-Hardware banning players the system detects as cheats and unfortunately the flawed system is now banning clean players as well as hackers!
Customer support is virtually None Existent!

Summary

Some of the features of the game are nice but I would advise people not to spend any money on the game(i.e. NX), due to the security problems you may end up losing it or facing disappointment or worse !

"Just when I think I'm bored, they have a blowout."

December 19, 2011  |  By Elvryndle

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Decent graphics
Frequent content updates
TONS of guns
Free to play (Yes I really mean free.)
Average download size. (Current client takes up about 3GB when all unpacked/updated)
Lots of Sales/Giveaways, etc.
Recruit packages(recently improved even further from their news feed) for new players.

Cons

Hackers (They still float around, though not nearly as bad as before)
Lag (occasional)
Learning curve is a little steep
New patches sometimes extremely buggy for the first week or so

Summary

Overall,a great game, that keeps things consistent, but adds just enough periodic newness to keep things fresh. And with the number of guns in its virtual arsenal, you're bound to find something. Definitely gets fun when you have a full room of 16 in Elimination, or when you get a team of 7 buddies with you to tackle a Fireteam mission and crank the difficulty up to Extreme. If you like FPS's, and dislike 60$ price tags + subscription fees for online multiplayer, GET THIS GAME NOW!!

Updated on Dec 19, 2011

I'd also like to add that downloading the patches can take awhile, as the installer checks all files, then downloads the updates, then checks them again. And for those of you interested in taking me on in Elimination, or helping me destroy the Infected/beat those **** terrorists in Fireteam, my username is DVendetta.

"Hot Dang that's one of a heck a game."

December 16, 2011  |  By razgrizraven

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

-Elite and Super Elite Moderators to permanently ban people from their rooms.

-Permanent weapons.

-Awesome friends.

Cons

Hackers
Elite moderators that won't listen.

Summary

I'm an experienced gamer on here. I recently reached the rank of 2nd Lt. Been playing for near 3 years. When we had our first GOA (General of The Army) he was a hacker and gotten banned. The next, was legit. Don't listen to anyone with negative reviews. (They can't play for crap) You don't have to use the NX feature (Real money) if you don't want to. But in overall, this game is awesome. Have fun everybody :)

"Fantastic FPS PC Game"

September 10, 2011  |  By Ryuzhu

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Low system requirements (even runs on Intel GMA)
Free to play
Decent graphics
Acceptable download size
Easy to install and uninstall
Good variety of weapons, maps, and game modes
Fast paced
Would be very fun if not for hackers

Cons

Hackers( as of sept. 2011 not so much)
Glitches (Mostly patched in 2 weeks within discovery)
Spammers and immaturity (Combat Arms is a young community, average age is 13)

Summary

Don't listen t the other guys, CA is a great game..it doesn't lag (if u have an average computer)
Glitches are patched quickly and is not a games for US only, i come from Australia and i play). People say is is not ameteur friendly, but, everone is terrible at the start to get better weapons u need to rank up (makes u want to play more), That the point of the game. Some people say their game crashes or something misfortunate happens. Its not nexon's fault that they have crap security/ a crap computer. Finally, People say nexon has bad tech support and/or don't care about the game. How could they say that when they update/fix the game everyday? Like *** is ur problem?

"Combat Arms Lost All Fun"

July 08, 2011  |  By hiitman17

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

~Free To Play
~Good Graphics for online shooter
~Wide range of maps and weapons

Cons

~TECH SUPPORT IS HORRIBLE
~Hacker/ chammers/ glitchers
~Bad lag
~Items too expensive
~Have to re-buy daily weapons/ equipment
~Not bandwidth friendly

Summary

Ok, I played Combat Arms last year and it was enjoyable. Sure, there were hackers then, but not too bad. There were a handful of maps and lots of weapons. Game was fun, and worked great for me. Now, I started playing again a few days ago. High amount of weapons, gear, maps etc etc, which is great, but it all costs so much. Then when you are in-game, you get killed every time you spawn by a hacker. The game has "HackShield" which obviously does nothing. The team doesn't even stop the hackers. And now, my game won't work anymore. I get an error code saying failed to update protection modules. I have sent to inquiries to tech support days ago, and they haven't even viewed it yet!

Bottom line is, this game has THE WORST TECH SUPPORT IN THE HISTORY OF GAMES, AND THE GAME IS GOING DOWNHILL VERY FAST. FIX THE HACKERS, FIX THE LAG, AND MAKE MY DAMN GAME WORK!

"Waste of time and money"

May 21, 2011  |  By tawakoni903

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Could be a fun game to play if they ever get the hackers out

Cons

* way too many players using hack programs
*game continuously lags
*games constantly crash due to hackers
*Nexon isn't concerned about the hacks and it ruins the game for legitimate players

Summary

Even though this game is "free to play" If you want to be good you really need to purchase better weapons. The problem is the players using the hacks make any weapon useless and takes all the fun out of the game which constantly lags. Nexon only cares about making money, not the enjoyment by the non hacking players and it shows. Whats the purpose of playing a game if the only way to play is to cheat?
