Conclusion: If you don’t might pushing your way through the difficulties there is some good play at the core of War Rock, and potential for the game to grow into something bigger with staying power. It just feels like it still needs some shaking out to get there. Right now the basic download is free with pay for packages available. Each level comes with its own perks that give unique advantage in game play, the boxed package offering its own additions as well.
Summary: War Rock is an online, military, tactical, first-person-shooter featuring state of the art weapons, team or solo based play and unbelievable missions and maps. With five different character classes to master, gamers can play individually or in a team.
Excerpt: War Rock looks and plays very similar to a game close to many gamers' hearts: Battlefield 2. But unlike Battlefield 2, it’s free. That’s right, you can download and play the game for free. But the only thing you buy is some extra money for in-game upgrades, some bonus experience, and the ability to name some chatrooms and what not. Of course you get what you paid for in the graphics department, which is nothing.
Excerpt: It's true what they say about getting what you pay for. Well, at least some of the time. You can still download War Rock for free, much as you could when the online first-person shooter was in its official beta stages. As a free game, it's a serviceable Battlefield-series substitute with a surprisingly large community and enough decent qualities to make it worth the download.
Pros: A couple of different modes to choose from, Occasionally intense gameplay on a bunch of decent maps
Cons: The core shooting action is underwhelming, Nonfunctional features, lag, and frequent crashes, Bizarre real-life economic model rewards cash over skill, Dated production values
Excerpt: Despite the newness, Korean developer Dream Execution released War Rock in South Korea in 2004 well before Battlefield 2's 2005 release. Dream Execution sold the international rights (USA and Europe) to K2 Networks. Between K2 Networks' partnerships with developers like Webzen (who's working on the hotly anticipated Xbox 360/PC MMOFPS Huxley) and its other titles (Knights Online, MU Online and Golf King), they are jockeying into a position to compete with one of largest...
Excerpt: Free or Pay2Play Battlefield alike I first played War Rock about 5 months ago. I found it in a free games directory. At that time it was in an early beta phase, but was very playable. Now I find myself reviewing the latest version. Now as well as the free2play main game, there are purchasable extras, a bit like you get in some free MMORPGs. War Rock is a FPS tactical shooter, in a similar vein to Battlefield crossed with counter strike. There are 3 game modes.
Pros: Free version available, Good character classes, great action
Cons: Paid version has to few extras, laggy, feels unfinished
Excerpt: La data lansării, deja infamul Counter-Strike nu numai cǎ a însemnat o revoluţie în ceea ce privește multiplayer-ul în echipǎ, dar pentru unii a reprezentat un nou mod de viaţǎ, respectivii trǎind practic pentru a juca CS. Furorile jocului încǎ mai persistǎ (la mai mult de 9 ani de la lansare), fiind în continuare unul dintre cele mai populare titluri online.
Pros: 3 moduri de joc, numeroase arme şi vehicule, Îmbinare decentă între Counter-Strike şi Battlefield
Cons: Motor grafic depăşit, Bug-uri numeroase, Modul Free2Play creează un dezechilibru evident în joc, Protecţia anti-cheat este lacunară
Excerpt: When it was released, the now infamous Counter-Strike wasn’t just a revolution in the team multiplayer shooter scene, but became a lifestyle to some who practically lived to play CS. The stir of the game lives on (for more than 9 years now) and still makes it one of the most popular online titles. Yet the Counter-Strike momentum slowly went down due to similar games, considered to be more “hardcore”, like America’s Army or the Battlefield series.
Pros: 3 game modes, many weapons and vehicles, Decent mixture of Counter Strike and Battlefield, It can run on decent systems
Cons: Graphics engine is old and it shows, Many bugs, Player cheating, even with Punkbuster
