War Rock (PC)
Advantages: free2play, many vehicles
Disadvantages: OP for paying players, hackers are rife
Warrock is a online FPS that is completely free to play! Yes you heard it right, free! The only thing that costs money in this game is some of the more advanced weapons, and you can spend real world money on more ingame money, but for reasons I will come to, i cant recommend doing this.
There are 3 basic modes of playing this game. A destruction mode (similar to that of counterstrike), where on team must place a C4 device in 1 of two locations, and destroy it, and the other team must attempt to stop this in a round based format. The winning team is the one that either diffuses/blow up the site.
The other 2 gameplays are essentially the same, but the map scale is different. On is a "medium map size", with few or no vehicles, and you fight until all the enemies tickets are run out. These run out by killing and capturing bases. The large type features bigger maps with more vehicles.
Each game you play, you win some money and exp, with which you can rent guns, suits, etc.
So, whats good?
Well, it is free to play, and there is a dizzying amount of weapons, vehicles etc you can drive/shoot/use. From machine guns, miniguns, apachae helicopters, like 8 different types of tank, motorbikes! You name it, you can use it! Also with lots of updates, the list keeps growing!
But... the bad...
First off, THE AMOUNT OF HACKERS ON THIS GAME IS JUST INSANE! Honestly, I left this game because of the hackers. Seriously, it so open hacking as well. It is very hard to enjoy a game when some hacker has made it so the instant you spawn, you land on a grenade. I am not joking this happens all of the time. I would say in 5 games, you can expect 4.5 games to have a hacker who just blatently kills you. And the worst part is, if you loose, you dont get silver, exp, or anything. And if you stay, your K/D goes way down.
This is made worse by there being no report feature in the game, so the hackers are free to roam.
The second problem is that people who spend money get just a plain ridiculous advantage. One of the things you can buy (but only with real money) is a pair of binoculars which on some maps can call in an air strike! I kid you not, on one map, a large one with tanks only, one sniper on the other team just used his binoculars, found a vantage point, and just constantly picked us off with his gun (again, on he bought, so 100% accuracy, longer range than all the snipers you can get for free, and just did artillary strikes if we hid in bunkers or tanks). It just makes the game feel like you do not need skill, or luck, or anything like that to win. All you need are hacks, or money.
So im summary, this game, as a game alone, is very good. The gameplay is good, and with a few game modes. But because of hacks (oh, sorry have i been caught hacking and my account has been terminated? I can just make another one for free, yay!), and the fact that the wepaons you need to pay money for are so over powered, it just ruins the game. You earn a pittance for each map you play, so after about a month of playing pretty hardcore, you might be able to afford 1 ak47. Not much verses a paying player with binoculars, an RPG and a minimgun, with dual scorpions as a backup!
Summary: One to avoid I think
