The reviewer has misrepresented a few things, including the meaing of the ascend deature and the supposed PvP battles. It's clear that he didn't put much time/thought into properly understanding the game.

He's right about one thing, though... this game is a lot better than Happy Wars. Also, it's the best f2p game I've ever played in terms of being fair as far as weapons and in fame currency.

I've been playing a few hours a day - give or take - for the past week. This game is huge, fun, and surprisingly deep. I highly recommend it to anyone with XBL who likes this kind of game. Even if not, I usually play shooters and I've been having a ball. It's been a while since I've been addicted to a game like this.
