Guns provides some exciting COOP PVP actionmungchung | May 14, 2013 | See all mungchung's reviews »
This is one game where the metacritics score should not deter you from trying it out. GMG customer reviews are more accurate =) Very fun Coop-PVP which is created nicely (and I'm not a big fan of competitive PVP for the most part). Great steampunk atmosphere with sleek graphics and exciting gameplay. Fun factor is high on this one and goes up a few more notches if played with a good crew or a group of friends. Plus, the players are helpful and welcoming for the most part and the DEVs are very down to earth and involved within the community.

Get your friends and grab the game, the game is a lot of fun with 3 other friends, there is a lot of tension and the game is really rewarding when you complete your objectives. First of all, it's a game at the first person view, you're on a ship and you're either trying to eliminate enemy ships or to capture goals. Your ship is composed of different parts such as the balloon, allowing you to change your altitude, the engines, to change your speed, or the hull which is the main part of your ship, if the hull is destroyed your ship will be dead. There also are weapons which you can't move that are available for use, if they're dead you only won't be able to damage other ships. So yeah, there are different kind of ships which you can customize before the battle by changing the weapons on it, adding some strategy to the game. The game is based of 3 different classes, the pilot who has some perks improving the movement of your ship, the engineer whose perks permits to repair or to grant bonuses on the different parts and weapons on the ship and finally the gunner who possesses different kinds of ammunition changing the weapons react. Speaking of weapons, they have different advantages and weaknesses, they will have more effects against certain parts on the enemy ship but the will be less effective on the other parts. The graphics of the game are not so good but it doesn't really matter because the ambiance is awesome, the music, the landscapes and the steam punk style makes you feel you're in the game. The game is intense and is a lot of fun, it may be boring if you're playing alone but it's a real joy to play when you're 4 friends on the ship.
Really advised for players looking for some fresh and unique coop.

I was in the closed beta for this game, and well....this game is a lot of fun, especially if you have yourself a great team. You will get some pretty awesome gameplay; intense battles, tight co-operative efforts to destroy other ships while keeping yours afloat, and overall quality fun. It's sad that the Metascore probably drove away quite a few sales from this nice gem. I'd say it's worth every penny, especially if it's on sale like it currently is.
Only thing is, the game got a tad repetitive, but most games do after playing them for a week straight :P
