GR:With DUST 514, developer CCP is trying to capture lightning in a bottle on a second occasion. Taking its cues from the company’s MMO magnum opus EVE Online, DUST 514 is a sci-fi shooter that borrows the persistent character and world-control elements of MMORPGs, including equipment, skill progression, and faction warfare. The game tries to deliver an immersive, epic experience, but CCP has a long way to go. This Icelandic import is a shaky, unrefined and confusing game, but it’s also the bare-bones skeleton of a great game: the first draft of an insane intergalactic war-drama, where all of creation is yours for the taking. The price tag--free-to-play, with slower progression for non-spenders--makes this unfinished product more appealing, but doesn’t excuse its flaws.
