Summary: Entertaining 4 player co-op game where you and your friends are in charge of a ship. Each member has a job to do on the ship, such as a pilot, engineer, and gunner. Pilot controls the ship for you, engineers are very important to keep the ship intact while in gunfights with other ships and the gunner contols the guns and cannons on the ship. Game has a steampunk feel to it, with the costumes and design of the ships.
Summary: Buy this game and then immediately get 3 of your closest friends to do the same. Your friendships will be tested as you yell at one another mercifully while insanity ensues and your airship begins to crumble all around you. Only the strongest survive when you fly this close to the sun!
Summary: I picked up this game based off the recommendation of a friend and it was such a great purchase. Guns of Icarus is such a charming and unique game. The gameplay encourages (and requires) teamwork. Each player has a role and they are all unique (pilot, gunner, engineers). Grab 3 friends and take to the skies!
Summary: I bought this game when it was first released in 2012 Oct and after I played some few rounds I have not played this game since. The biggest reason why I did not played this game after is because it requires some serious team communication to even destroy a single ship. Back than I did not have any friends who played this game so maintaining a ship and trying to fight was not so smooth.
Summary: Let me start off by saying that this game requires an enormous amount of teamwork, communication, and coordination in order to do well. If you cannot find that, you will not have a good time with Guns of Icarus Online. If you can't use a mic, then it is not a good idea to be a captain, for it is more than just flying a ship. These reasons are why I find that player retention is quite low.
Summary: An absolutely magnificent piece of work. An original and engaging game, Guns of Icarus Online is an absolute thrill to play either with strangers in its matchmaking mode or with your own crew of steampunk rogues. There's really nothing like dashing in and out of pitched battle raining fire in your Squid, opening up a full broadside barrage with a Galleon or dashing in headlong with a An absolutely magnificent piece of work.
Summary: Some friends and I from a regular gaming group got this on sale and we spent several weeks having a grand time blowing other airships out of the sky. The weapons and controls may seem clunky, but considering the technology it is based on, I'd say it's pretty accurate.
Summary: Guns of icarus is a very good co-op game that needs communication. The fact that you will be part of a crew of 5 ( i think ) is a very good factor. Communication in this game is the key to win. The Leader will pilot the ship whilst the powder monkeys will manage the guns and the engineers will repair any damaged parts. The only flaw of the game is there are different game modes but they Guns of icarus is a very good co-op game that needs communication.
