PlanetSide 2 Review | F2P-MMO-FPS-FTW-TBH | DealSpwn

DealSpwn writes:

"As you might have been able to gather from the episodes of Dealspwn Playthrough we dedicated to it (viewable here & here if you missed them) or my ramblings in the recent editions of the PWNcast, I’ve been rather excited about PlanetSide 2, the MMOFPS sequel to what proved to be a rather marmite-esque experience a few years back. This was mainly thanks in one part to some rather divisive design choices, and in another part due to heavy latency on its server. With SOE having learned from their mistakes, they were ready to give it another shot using the best hardware and graphical assets at their disposal. What had been rumoured as Planetside Next was finally unveiled last year as PlanetSide 2, but more importantly was the news that it was doing away with subscriptions in favour of a business model that has really stepped up a gear in recently times – Free To Play – that really set tongues wagging." (PC, Planetside 2) 9/10
