Love It Or Hate It: Loadout

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?

Whoops, that was a little embarrassing. I just spaced out last week on Love It or Hate It, forgetting I hadn't posted a new one until Friday. So Dungeons & Dragons Online got a little longer in the spotlight, but the response was still lukewarm. 28% said Love It (versus 25% for LOTRO), 20% Hate It (23%), and 52% were meh, matching LOTRO's percentage.

While researching the Top 10 F2P Games On Consoles piece, I was a little surprised to find Loadout be as popular as it was. I never played it myself, thinking it to be a little too Team Fortress 2-ish for my tastes, but it's very well-received on Steam and Metacritic, so maybe there's more to it than I thought. What do you think?

Very fun but Fire and Tesla too OP so I quit...I don't think anyone plays it.

I played it for a couple weeks, but it got dull fast. Almost everyone picked the most efficient gun builds they found in guides so there was no incentive to build a gun because you'd just be annihilated I did like the dong physics though.

It was a fun game, I played it during beta and for a bit after launch, and then returned a few months later. It never really managed to grab me. You could do all kinds of interesting things with your guns, but most of the options were pointless to use.
