A team based steampunk airship game where you join a crew for some epic ship on ship action.
Imagine Battlefield with only 4 man airships and you have this game. The game is played in first or third person and you choose a role of captain, gunner or engineer. In battle, the captain takes priority for verbal commands and control of the ship whereas the gunners and engineers run about using turrets and repairing. Gunners and engineers are interchangable roles as they can both repair and gun, but are specialized in that a gunner won't repair as fast as a engineer and a engineer won't fire turrets as well as a gunner.
Graphics are nothing you haven't seen before yet very good. Runs great too, very stable, optimized. Matchmaking was an issue before I got the game but it's actually amazingly good now. Click Ready to join a game and it will do it's absolute best to get you in a game as fast as possible, even if that means prompting you to change your preferences on the fly to get you in quicker. You won't have any trouble finding a ship and crew to join.
This is a great game in that it's so important to have a good crew of players. You don't have to be a microphone junkie but some level of talking is required to get anywhere. The better a crew communicates, the more they win. Consequently, it can be very frustrating to be on a bad crew.
This is a very underrated game with great online teamwork that needs to be a lot more popular, so wait for a sale, buy it and get your best online buddy a copy, play together as crewmembers and it is one of the best online experiences out there.
My only gripe is why isn't there more games like this? You could have a game where instead of steampunk airships your team crews ships in a world war 2 battle or a sci fi space battle. This game is a proof of concept ahead of it's time that will explode in popularity someday... For now, you have to make do with the relatively low player population which is really unfortunate. Make sure you bring a friend along for best results.
