    I played this at eurogamer last year in London, nothing that special at the time to be honest, beat CoD though on the entertainment factor!

    Looks OK.

    Hey, at least it is free to play; this game's graphics and animations are already at least 10 years ahead of CoD, which, last I checked, was $59.99 on Steam.

    I guess, its crytek though, they used to be amazing, they created far cry and crysis, since the originals though they haven't produced a decent game, since this is a first for them, history dictates this should be pretty good!

    Just because its free doesn't mean my expectations should be lower than a fully paid for game, the reason they make it free to play is because they reckon on average they make more money this way, games gotta be pretty damn special for people to actually buy in-game items.

    SIGH..another "gaming network" with a grand total of ONE member company pushing its pay-to-win schlock. Will they never learn?

    Whether you pay-to-play or pay-to-win, you still have to pay. The only difference is the model. There really is nothing to complain about. Nothing is free.

    Lol what?

    Your expectations should be lower if there's no monetary investment on your part. This is not a AAA game, don't let the engine mislead you.

    If you buy a $60 game such as CoD, and don't like it, you lost 60 bucks. That doesn't quite apply to a "free" game.

    That's not the same as saying you can't say bad things about the game if there are any just because it's free, but I think it's not fair to the game to put it on the same level as other games with much larger funding. It just won't be the same experience, and the price tag often implies that.
