Don't waste your money! I just came back from playing for a few hours and am not impressed at all with the game.
The amount of ammo it takes to kill someone is flat out ridiculous and a real game breaker for me. Sometimes, you find yourself hastily sprinting around a rock with your opponent for what feels like minutes until one of you is unlucky enough to get stuck and killed in the process.
You literally have to fire an insane amount of bullets into your enemy before he dies. It really is no fun at all for me at this point.
And I'm not even talking about the unstable framerate, the clunky controls or the unspectacular graphics...
Anyone has a spare Code ?!
Why does it take so long to get through the character create crap.. >_>
Not really impressed,Gameplay is a replica of Starhawk which i didn't like,never played EVE but this one looks complicated. skills,perks and whole lot of stuff that requires a lot of time and reading to fully understand.And i don't know is it because it's only 2 GB beta but graphics are horrible.
I'm happy with the size, I hope it doesn't turn into DCUO with ridiculous 2-5gb updates.
I have a feeling this sub section will die as fast as it popped up.
I'm sure they have lots to offer on the gameplay, though personally I found it quite entertaining. The strategy elements built into the game is going to be what makes it so amazing. When you're just running around with randoms it feels like about 3% of what the game is going to be.
The integration with EVE and the almost RTS element is going to be where this gets nuts.
Right now, Dust 514 isn't doing it for me. For a F2P game, it isn't bad. It's a solid first-person shooter and I'm sure if I took the time to get good at it, I'd invest a decent amount of time into it. How I see Dust 514 really depends on what I'm comparing it to. If we're comparing it to other F2P games, it's looking pretty good right about now. But when we're comparing it to other first-person shooters, it doesn't stack up too well, aside from being free.
I plan to play some more of the closed beta to get a more informed opinion on it, and it's very possible that my perception of the game will completely change after spending some more time with it, but right now I just don't think Dust 514 is going to be able to reach its full potential. It's reminiscent of MAG.
I was very excited for this but after playing the beta briefly I'm not feeling it, I'll still check it out on release but as someone said, it ain't a patch on regular FPS games as far as graphics, sound and dynamics go.
Ok so you upgrade your gun so you can kill faster but talk about putting off first time players!! It felt like I needed the whole magazine for 1 kill.
I enjoy sci fi and all but the sidearm that shoots yellow curvy lazers felt so weak, no kick, terrible sound and visuals and any rumble?
So yeah I ain't that impressed.
is the beta free or do i need a code?
