War Rock review

  • Simple, accessible gameplay
  • Low initial cost
  • Low system specs
  • Dated feel
  • High cost to stay competitive
  • Connection issues

The biggest problem here is the dated feel of it all. It starts with a graphics engine that, while a solid performer on dated hardware, delivers underwhelming visuals. Sound effects are equally ugly, but the big problem is online reliability. The local servers work well enough most of the time. It’s the international servers, where the majority of the players are, that constantly suffer from lag, turning sniping into a crap shoot.

War Rock certainly delivers some fun moments, as most shooters do. And, as a free game for those with older hardware it’s a good choice so long as you don’t mind getting beat up on by the guys who can afford the good toys. However, for anyone actually thinking of spending money, there are better options.

    another thing, this game has a crazy amount of hackers, and it really pisses you off when you put 2 clips from an AK point blank into someone and they dont even care.
