Some free-to-play games are more polarizing than others, with some sides taking the stance of “great, totally non-exploitative implementation” and others thinking “total pay-to-win trash.” We’d like to see on what side of the spectrum the gaming public — and by that, we mean you guys — think of certain F2P games, and so we’ve invented something new called Love It Or Hate It?
Every week, we’ll present a new F2P game and give you the option of passing judgment on it. Then we’ll look back at it the next week and see what people thought. There are no prizes, except for the satisfaction of knowing you clicked on a button and made something happen. Really, what else do you need?
Last week’s game was Marvel Heroes, which seemed appropriate given the new Avengers movie in theaters. While it didn’t get quite the same turnout as Age of Ultron, critics were generally pleased with Marvel Heroes, giving it a 43% positive rating versus a mere 16% negative. Time to make six more sequels…
In that same spirit — OK, not really, I’m just looking for a clever segue — this week’s game is PlanetSide 2, dedicated to all the mindless action blockbusters sure to pop up over this summer!
Pros: Open-world FPS action, inclusive style of gameplay, great graphics
Cons: Performance and balance issues, can still find bugs and hackers
