    Hey guys this game came out last week and the graphics and gameplay looks pretty sweet and requirement is kinda quite demanding since it requires ONLY DX10 gfx card.
    Game is pretty cheap on steam aswell cost the same as killing floor

    I must say, I was disappointed. It feels like a mod, not a fully fledge game. Saying that however, I do believe this is Futuremark's toe in the water.

    I was one of the beta testers and and it was the most boring beta test I've been in. Although people killing each other over and over for no real reason is pretty dam boring anyways.

    I've been tempted to pick it up. Erocker likes the game. Of course he also likes perforating lawn gnomes but thats a whole different story.

    I managed to play the beta for about 10 minutes before I got bored and uninstalled it. The game is inexpensive for a reason.

    well good thing I didn't buy it a couple weeks ago when it was cheap on Steam. That would have been a bad purchase from what you guys are saying

    I also was beta-tester on this ... the most lame game I ever played
    (Graphics okay - well had to be/Futuremark) but the gameplay was horrible...IMO

    I bought it and I think it's more of a good system demo than a game, as the frame rate is quite low a lot of the time. It's got some interesting innovations in it, but it needs more development to make a compelling game.

    I started a thread on it and wrote a mini review, here.

    The whole concept is a nice try I guess…

    FPS games are or should be fast paced, not snails paced bore fests.

    I had absurdly long load times all through beta and then the game just wasn’t worth getting into so the few matches I did get into were so boring I didn’t even get more than 2 kills in 10 times trying to play/load.

    I do like the game but don't play it much. I get on maybe once a week, kill a bunch of people and quit. There is simply not enugh content in the game. What the hell is a game in space without space ships?! 360 movement and zero G is good though, it's fun and a little different playing a FPS in space. It should have a $9.99 price tag though.
