DUST 514 Review - Liberating FPS players from a prison they don't know they're in yet
20 May 2013
Summary: DUST 514 is easily the most indepth FPS game out there and with an admission fee of �0.00 there is no reason at all for you not to check out what could be your go-to FPS for the next 5-10 years.
Pros: Free-to-play, Deep customisation and skill progression, 1 year of development down, 10+ to go!
Cons: A few bugs and technical issues, Some of the dropsuit racial variations are not yet in game
Excerpt: First, take the standard features of a multiplayer FPS game: multiple classes to choose from, a variety of weapons with different advantages and disadvantages, a few game modes and an in-game economy. Second, set this game in a fascinating sci-fi universe filled with corporate intrigue, rich lore and perhaps the most player-driven storyline in the entire MMO arena.
Pros: A fun, free-to-play FPS game in EVE-Online’s universe, Wide variety of skills to learn and equipment to gain., Passive, offline skill-point accrual is a nice change of pace, Heavy customization of character equipment loadouts, Keyboard + mouse supported, Two-way interaction with MMO EVE-Online an enticing concept
Cons: Character development slower paced, more marginal than usual, Equipment available via cash shop invites pay-to-win complaints, Theorycrafters and lovers of spreadsheets have a planning edge
