    How is it?

    Is it worth the download? I know I sound stingy, but I'm halfway through the month and I don't want to download 2.6gb if it's not that great.
    What's the game comparable to? And is it playable solo or must I join a clan to get the benefit of it?
    Is everything obtainable through playing the game or a you kinda forced to buy stuff?
    What would you give it out of 10?

    In my humble opinion, yes. It's in open beta now but there will be no skill resets so now's the time to jump on board. This is a true beta though,not a typical demo beta like most games offer; CCP is taking all the feedback given by the community and tweaking the game accordingly.

    What's the game comparable to?


    It's not really comparable to much! It's an FPSRPGMMO that has been grafted to a PC spaceship RPG MMO. I guess its comparable to BF3, as you have ground and air vehicles at your disposal and its an FPS, but thats about it. It works with an economy where you have to buy your mercs gear and has a bat$#@! crazy development system and has the potential to be the greatest sci-fi IP ever created!

    And is it playable solo or must I join a clan to get the benefit of it?

    I played solo for ages, but PSU has its own official corp, so you can fight for your news site of choice.

    Is everything obtainable through playing the game or a you kinda forced to buy stuff?

    What you buy with AUR (PSN bought currency) basically allows you to use gear earlier without having to train for it, but all AUR items have comparable ISK (in game currency) items. There is no super weapon or god armor that will give anyone an unfair advantage. It's a primary focus of CCP to make sure DUST 514 isn't pay to win.

    What would you give it out of 10?

    Personally, a solid 8...but wait for a bit more feedback!

    there's a big update in April what you're playing is strictly beta. CCP reckon the April build will be akin to receiving a new game

    if the beta build isn't floating your boat, check back in April

    Thanks so much for this info. I played the closed beta for a few weeks awhile back and just....well, couldn't take some of the lag issues and such. Come April I shall check back for details on the latest and greatest build.

    I have the situational awareness of a newborn. I see boobs everywhere.

    Download the game, make a character and leave it. You may aswell amass passive skill points. You'd have about 1,500,000 for not even playing come April.

    It might be time to check this out. I haven't been MP gaming for about a year now. Looking to check out Planetside 2 on PC as well.

    I must admit that I found it rather boring the first couple of times I played it but the third time I gave it a go something clicked and I really enjoy it now.

    "i've been playing for months and only now do i like where my merc is at
    i have a solid base to grow in future"

    So it took a couple of months for the game to become fun and playable for you? Do you see what I am getting at? Most average games players don't want to spend this long on a game before it becomes good to play. I have a lot of patients when playing as I've been player computer games for over 25 years, but this is excessive.

    I hope you don`t think I`m just being negative for the sake of it, I do see potential for Dust to be a very good game, and if they do hook up to the EVE online game it would be a great technical achievement. The last time I played it tho, the maps were empty and even with a vehicle it take too long to find someone to shoot at. Finally, am I the only person who finds that women`s voice sooo annoying?

    i'll clarify by saying that quote could also be applied to skyrim
    i wanted a kick ass mage who could decimate any and everything but i had to wait months to get that even o.O yet skyrim is THE most excessible of all TES games
    the MOST important thing with what i said was simply that, "I". I wanted a role that wasn't just about shooting other things, i wanted a role that did 3 of 4 different things and i've done that, its just that its taken months to do so

    others might only want a kick ass assault class, or a kick ass sniper in which case they'll be middle of the table within a few weeks (or days if they're anygood)

    it is an RPG, you work for what you get. this is no COD (and thank goodness for it)

    about the voice, i brought it up in the HQ how i dind't find her particularly effective either
    EDI from mass effect would be amazing!

    For me, the difference between other games and DUST 514 (in terms of time investment and reward) is the difference between buying a beautifully made vase and making your own on a pottery wheel. It's something you craft yourself, overtime. Part of the satisfaction of DUST for me is in the long term molding of a character. When I am a $#@!ing badass full on maxed out logistics merc who can pilot the best ship and have the best fittings, then I have something that wasn't bought or unlocked in an easy manner, it's something that can't be created by someone else in a matter of days or weeks. That's one of the beauty of DUST 514 for me.

    I wouldn't bother mate at least not at the moment.
    5/10 max id say.
    The 5 is for the depth which in some cases puts people off (usually cod lovers). I love customization and MMO elements as an avid Eve player i get most of this and understand how it works in general.
    The flaw unfortunately is the game itself (for now). Visually its not great and the controls are even worse which can take some getting used to. There are also still many bugs to iron out here though I would point out its in beta at the moment and is set to be for some time still. There is talk that there maybe a move/continuation onto PS4 so would still be around by all accounts if you do get into it as some have.
    This is but one opinion but would point out i was buzzing that this was coming and i have been known to give CCP big praise in the past but with this im no so sure i shud
