Dust 514 Review | IGN

IGN: "Dust 514's poor shooting and driving mechanics and grindy free-to-play economy blot out too much of its depth and fun."

This game was hyped to high heavens when it was first announced.

You'd think after such an extensive beta period it would be darn polished by now.

It's actually good now,a solid 7.5

Shag off Ign, it has the most in depth character customization in an FPS and the piloting is awesome(great ships/love em). It's only **** if you're **** at it

This game simply requires your time a little and to get used to the complexity, it's not even that complex in the end.

I play it almost daily, and would give it no less than an 8.

To each their own, but this game kicks a lot of ass.

elhebbo161998d ago

it was crap during the beta and its crap now. no matter how much fancier you make the menus and UI, you cant polish a turd.

I actually did polish a turd once for a science project. I got a lot of strange looks and a "D" but it worked.

I didn't think the beta was too great either.
Really lacked polish. It had the fundamentals there but it just didn't quite come together. Have no idea if the released game is any better or worse but it hasn't been getting good reviews.
I really don't trust IGN though.

Did not see that coming. I thought IGN threw 9s at everything that moved? Must have not paid them enough, that's the only way to get a decent review out of IGN these days. Just to sum up the ridiculousness they spew, check out this parody I embedded. And if that doesn't trike your fancy try this one, also another parody of their reviews.

Quick! Throw us some tin foil hats before we are fooled by IGN's evil corruption!

horne2421998d ago

I would, but my shop is all out of tin foil... IGN must have paid them to remove it from the shelves.

HarryMasonHerpderp1998d ago (Edited 1998d ago )

To be fair IGN are actually corrupt. You can tell by the fact that they didn't write a story about the no DRM for PS4 and used games campaign on twitter. Any videogame website that cares about gamers and the future of the industry would of written an article about it.
They're in publishers pockets.

UNGR1998d ago

This gets a 5.8 but Call of Duty gets 9's every year? Seems legit.

porkChop1998d ago

The game is really, really lacking polish. It's not THAT bad, but the game mechanics, graphics, audio, net code, etc, are all really rough around the edges. The game needs some serious work. The lag and reg issues are horrible. With such a long beta, you'd figure the game would have been fixed by now.

I kinda like this game. It feels like it has more potential than most MP shooters. It's constantly updated and I think this one can't be reviewed like generic shooters. This is free to play, it's much more complex, not meant for 16 year old Call of Duty fans and it has some kind of nyche vibe to it that really intrigues me. This is a MMOFPS. So it's about a community, a new universe and connectivity with another universe... This has to grow on you. I think this can't be reviewed (just like WOW can't be reviewed IMHO)

RavageX1998d ago (Edited 1998d ago )

I agree with you to a point. This isn't the sort of game you can spend a day or two with and review, it just takes more time than that(as it is with MMOs period).

The problem is there has to be something that grabs you at the beginning that makes you want to keep playing it, and this game doesn't have that for me.

Several others are right when they same the game lacks polish and it is painfully obvious once you get in a game.

On a personal note, I've tried the game multiple times throughout its existence and I just don't like it. I have tried to like it, more than any other game I've played lately.

It just doesn't grab me in any sort of way. A bit to bland/boring perhaps.

Having said that, I would take anything that "professional" reviewers say with a grain of salt. I'd say try the game for yourself, it is free after all.
