Forge review: Blending, stripping down, and melding play styles

Forge is a game that defines the term “tall order”. The team at Dark Vale Games set out to blend the best elements of MMO PvP with the fast and frantic action of a class-based shooter. Forge strips away all of the PvE (quasi-single player) elements of an MMORPG and throws you directly into multiplayer conflict. Once inside a match you choose one of the game’s five playable classes and go to town against the other team in a variety of modes. There is no single-player campaign, no over-world to explore – nothing except multiplayer battles. Forge‘s twist comes from the fact that the game moves and operates like a third-person shooter.
