Warface: Revisited. Should I play Warface?
Okay, I was hyper-critical of Warface the first time I reviewed it. If you haven’t read the article, check it out, it was the only time I didn’t hold back any punches. I stood by my review, and I still feel most of what I mentioned was relevant. I decided to give Warface another chance and wanted to see the pros of it. I called the game a Call of Duty clone, and I do still stand by that statement, but it isn’t the only FPS that plays like CoD. It just felt the most directly related. This is a redemption article for Warface, and I think you will be surprised by my ultimate decision.
Warface has a lot of game modes; they have team deathmatch, free for all, capture, domination, plant the bomb, etc. all your classic shooter game modes. This adds a lot of variety to the game, and that does make it fun. I played a team deathmatch and my team got rolled, but I still have fun playing around with the medic and sniper class. Not only can you play casual online matches, but there is also a small PVE aspect in the game that everyone can get a kick out of. I didn’t LOVE the PvE, but other people might.
I’m not going to lie; the only reason I decided to retry Warface was to see how the ranked system was. While my level was far too low to play it, I did some more digging. Warface picks the classic FPS game mode that we see in CS:GO, and CoD, and that is Search & Destroy. A very difficult and unforgiving game mode that will test your positioning and aim. When I saw this, I was pretty ecstatic, and I will be grinding hard to get to 20 to give you guys another article that highlights to good or bad of Warface ranked.
Free to Play
Free to play FPS games have always burned a hole in your wallet. Guns are bought, or rented for a limited amount of time, which is a relatively fair concept. I understand that every game needs to make a profit. My main issue is that the bought weapons typically far outclass the free ones. Warface could do a little bit of a better job of giving the free to play players a little bit more edge.
Ironclad Game Reviews
This is our second time reviewing Warface, and our opinion changed, but only very slightly. I think the game still needs quite a bit of work and kill cams. There were a few times that I felt I was killed in a very sketchy way and had no way to double-check. I think Warface has been one of the better free to play FPS games on the market and I have played a great deal of them. Compared to most FPS games Warface isn’t all too special, but it holds its weight as a free to play FPS game that has a ranked system that can be enjoyable. I was very critical of the game during my first playthrough, but my second playthrough didn’t make me love the game. I tried to give this game a second chance, and while I didn’t hate Warface, I really can’t say it is worth anyone’s time.
