Best Shooter, Best MMO, Best of Show, Most Awards Received – PlanetSide 2

PlanetSide 2, on paper, almost seems too good to be true. In action, the “almost” disappears before your eyes and you’re left wondering: How can something this ambitious actually exist? And if it can, why did it take this long for somebody to do it?

We didn’t hand the same game the award for Best Shooter, Best MMO, and Best of Show lightly, but PlanetSide 2 clearly asserted itself as the top candidate in all of those categories. The shooting is fast, frantic, and fun. As an MMOFPS, it takes nearly every gameplay element that’s been attempted in the genre up to 11, without making any compromises in its pursuit of its “Wouldn’t it be cool if…?” premise. From what we’ve seen so far, PS2 has all of the elements PC gamers want in our ideal persistent, massively-multiplayer shooter, and probably a few we didn’t know we wanted.

We love that everything you do, from the time your boots hit the ground to that inevitable moment that you’re forced to log off by the sun coming in your window and the realization that you have to work, directly affects a world that doesn’t go away when a match ends.

E3 hasn’t ever really been about the PC, and this year featured a lot of big console titles, but we can say without any caveat that PlanetSide 2 stole the show for us. It’s shaping up to be a transcendent experience, both as a shooter and an MMO, in a very “only on PC” kind of way.

Hells yeah!!! I am down with the sickness. Simply cannot wait to get in there!!!
