As of now currently a 2.5/5, though that is subject to change.
A very cool FPS game idea and I wish there were more games like it on the market, hearkening back to old AC multiplayer.
Despite me playing this a lot since release and generally enjoying my time, the game sits at a 2.5 for quite a few reasons.
Firstly, performance is shaky. There is a lot of freezing and weird lag for pretty much no reason, I think they just need to optimize. This entire game feels like early access or something, there is definitely a lack of polish.
Second, I do not entirely fuck with the gun play. I cannot explain why, but aiming is extremely difficult and just feels terrible. There is also way too big of an emphasis on head-shots. I feel like I'm playing halo online but even worse, where if you are not landing head-shots, you will lose the fight. Hit detection also feels wonky. I think the pure difficulty of the gun-play combined with the somewhat repetitive phase one of the game marks its doom, and even with cross-play, I don't think this game will survive.
Thirdly, as previously mentioned, phase 1 can get a little repetitive. You're doing the exact same thing every time, and that usually involves holding down a button to gain a resource. That's it. You may break out into a firefight in phase 1, but honestly fighting in this phase isn't helpful for either party.
Fourth, the game is just unbalanced. Some agents have really overpowered abilities or weapons that just feel unfair. It's especially annoying when some of these overpowered weapons/abilities must be unlocked through hours and hours of game-play.
Fifth, and this is more of a personal complaint, I do not care about/like any of the characters. I just straight up don't like any of them, I think they're all lame as hell. If I'm playing a spy game I want to play as a cool James Bond type, not some quirky goofball that quips like a marvel character. The closest character to what I want is Squire and man I just hate him, he is so annoying. Wish they'd give an option to turn off voice lines.
Despite all these flaws listed, I do want this game to succeed, and my 2.5/5 is honestly just because of how much I like the concept and yearn for more of this style. I don't know if they'll ever fix these problems, but here's to hoping.
