Enjoying the game, but the disconnects are frustrating. still I don't hold it against the developers. PCF it seems like haven't done much for quite a few years. This would probably be something they can monetize to sustain the company and create an enduring franchise. When you compare against say anthem, well, there is no comparison. So there is a lot of demand for the product and server issues to be ironed out. I think both PCF and Square Enix may be new to the always online genre. Hopefully they can figure it out soon enough to not burn their reputation.
Couldn't agree more. This is the first time in a long time where it actually annoys me when people bash this game without having tried it themselves. Reviewers like Worth a Buy have been dead wrong in their reporting, calling it a cover shooter for example. I can't stress enough that myself and many many others who actually played the game ("the way it should be played") thoroughly love its gameplay and its story/atmosphere. There is something here the gaming industry was sorely missing. It has the level of intense action that has me lie awake for hours when I try to sleep right after playing because my brain is still pumped with adrenaline. The game also looks gorgeous. I'm a broken record by now, especially here on Blues regarding Outriders, but I feel that this game needs its outspoken fans. Sure, these early server issues suck ass, but man... this is the best looter shooter in at least a decade. Or maybe just the best looter shooter period, I believe.
