A not so original First Person Shooter game
When playing Warface, if your reaction after playing several rounds is that this game is a reskinned Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, you aren't the only one thinking that. There are only a few differences between these two titles.
A teamwork oriented FPS
Overall if there was a more detailed storyline, got rid of weapon degradation, and the production team did more with the overall layout, it would have been cool.
Warface is a Multiplayer FPS that places a lot of emphasis on teamwork, which is an interesting change from what people expect for shooting games. Users can play as one of four classes, such as assault and medic, in a variety of match setups. These include territory capture, and bomb placement. What makes the game groundbreaking is a team’s ability to succeed or fail is based on their ability to work as a cohesive unit.
Outside of forcing players to operate as a squad rather than everyone doing their own thing, the game feels like more of the same. There are two sides in conflict with each other, although the conflict is unclear to the player, and one has to score a certain number of points or eliminate the other side to win the mission.
As time goes on, experience points are gained to level up your character, and more items are unlocked, which is great. However, as time goes on, weapons deteriorate and break. If you do want to customize your character, you can purchase additional gold using real world currency, adding a sort of pay to play element to Warface.
Overall, if there was a more detailed storyline, they got rid of weapon degradation, and the production team did more with the overall layout, it would be amazing. Although the squad-based tactics are awesome, it is one of the few redeemable qualities of this title.
Where can you run this program?
This program is available on a web browser, Windows, and Mac. Additionally, it is available on the Xbox and the PS 4.
Is there a better alternative?
Pretty much any FPS with multiplayer is the same, if not better than Warface. Examples include Destiny 2, The Division, and Rainbow 6 Siege.
If you have a group of friends that are looking for a unique multiplayer FPS, look no further. However, if you’re looking for a game that somehow adds something to the genre, this game isn’t it.
Should you download it?
No, there are better games out there than this one, or at least that are somewhat unique. This game feels very generic, and the microtransactions give a very EA feel to it.
