Section 8: Prejudice Review
The first was promising but failed to succeed. Will the sequel follow suit? Or will it outshine the first?
Cliche story is cliche. Let's be honest, most first person shooters are not known for great stories, and this is no exception. On the other hand games like Bioshock thrive on that aspect. You're a soldier, some shit happens, now you have to find the traitor and kill him. Beat the game, yeah yeah, end of story.
Now here's where the game really starts to kick off. You can choose from 4-5 preset loadouts, or customize your own loadout, which is pretty spectacular to say the least, meaning that you're not confined to one certain class and can technically be a hybrid of multiple classes. You can choose 2 weapons of your choice, ranging from pistols to rocket launchers, and you can choose 2 abilities of your choice, ranging from being able to heal stuff to having special grenades to use. Basically the main objective is to capture and defend as many control points as possible. There are many primary objectives that randomly start during matches at random times and completing these side objectives will earn the team a lot of points. You also get currency for killing enemies and completing objectives which can be used to buy turrets or purchase vehicles and mechs to crush the enemy with. Matches are long and the size of the maps are pretty big, with 32 max players. I would've gave gameplay a 10/10 if it didn't take so damn long just to destroy vehicles. But other than that it was good.
The graphics are pretty outdated to be honest. If a person didn't know any better, they would think that I was playing Halo 3 on my computer, because of how the characters looked and the colors and the feel that it gives off. Ran very smoothly @ 60fps most of the time maxed out, but when there's a lot of action on the screen, it dips down to about 37-43, which isn't so bad as long as it doesn't go below 30, then it's bearable for me at least.
- Fun gameplay
- Lot of replay value
- No two matches will ever be the same
- Character customization is great
- Lots of weapons and abilities to choose from
- Best spawning in a video game evarrrr
- Vehicles and mechs can be overpowered
- Story is crap
- AI isn't so smart
FluffyBunnyPwn gives it 8/10 overall.
