Dust 514 Review in Progress

IGN - It's a good thing I like numbers, because Dust 514 has thrown an awful lot of them at me with little regard to whether I was ready or not. See, I'm the guy who's disappointed when a new RPG doesn't have enough stats to interpret, or when its skill tree looks more Charlie Brown Christmas special than Rockefeller Plaza. But even number nerds like me have limits, and while I'm not ready to say that Dust 514 exceeds mine quite yet, it certainly throws a whole lot more at new players than just about any FPS I can think of. (DUST 514, PS3)

Throwing a lot at me stright at the start of a game makes me nervous lol x)

Haha, well MAG was the only game that really made me take in for a few moments the huge scale of the game. It was pretty amazing seeing all the soldiers parachuting into pretty intense gun fights that were going on, it didnt make me nervous but it was overwhelming in how impressive it was

Domination in MAG was amazing. So much going on at once. The game made it hard to even care about CoD. The more people to blast at the better imo.

Yeah MAG is unmatched on consoles if what you want is the feel of a huge battle. Even the smallest matches dwarf every other console shooter. Zipper really messed up a great thing.

I quite liked the numbers and stats in the beta if i'm honest. I'm very aware it is not for everyone though.

There is a very VERY steep learning curve with this game cause of the menus & the sheer scope of the game. It's not something you can pick up & play right away like something like COD or Halo.

The game will require your time & patience. If you are willing to take that time to learn the game it can be extremely rewarding. I've been in the beta for 4 months now. At first i was intimidated but everyday i took some time in the game & i came to understand what the game has to offer.

First time you call for an orbital strike was really cool. The EVE players are cool people & having the chance to be the difference in their universe is something players can grow to appreciate.

The game will evolve just like EVE has. Imagine having the opportunity to like board a starship & trying to take it over for your faction. CCP can make something like that happen in the future.

Dust 514 is not for everyone. It is like an RPG for shooters & if like i said are willing to spend time with it you may find that it is just for you.

Personal score from the beta - 7.5-8 - 10

- room for improvement but worth the time i spent.

Sadly, the more complex a shooter is the less likely it is to succeed.
