My latest FPS love, filling that bullethole in my heart. Anyone else with it? Otherwise, I'll describe it and try to make new players
Basically, it's a mixture of FPS and RTS gameplay. The commander plays the game like an RTS (Building buildings, etc) with the rest of the team playing the first person shooter bit. Makes for some really interesting strategic battles while still giving you that use-gun-on-man fun. I'd recommend it (if you think you'd really really like it, it's Ł15 now - i'd otherwise wait for a sale.)
-Little bit buggy (it's a source game) - particularly when selecting your spawn point - usually plays fine though.
-Finding a server can be hard - the servers tend to be either full or empty. Usually you can find one, just sometimes you have to wait a few minutes.
-Level progression system - kinda seems out of place. I know that's what a lot of people want these days but, eh. I never really liked it for FPSes.
-Other players - Strategy's a vital part of the game and if people on your team (Specifically, your commander) is rubbish, you can lose pretty badly and through no fault of your own. Finding a good server to keep going back to is a good idea (as it is with every FPS)
So, any other players?
