TBH I've never heard of this game before. Looks interesting and seems as though it has a playerbase. Should I buy it?

How come you think it has a playerbase? I can't find any information about that.

coz ppl are posting in this forum. i just did some reading and though it looked promising, this game has died. maybe the sp campaign is fun? but nobody is online. people seem to think that an auto lock on feature ruined the game or similar.

well ive made up my mind im not buying it.

A few clanmates bought it instant. So i will get it too. I just hope that there are a few other who are playing/buying it.
I hope this sale revives the game!

Btw, it has dedicated servers, right?

It does have an excellent offline multiplayer. It is less fun than normal MP of course(it is the exact same MP, but only with bots instead of players), But it is worth its 2 bucks. I am going to reinstall it today or tomorrow to see if there are more people playing this game because of the low price now.

A sequel is in the works right now. I seen some footage of it, looks good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXwltQdCoEc

This is definitely a good game but not much of a SP mode from what I've heard. I've played the MP demo and really liked it. The kit variations are pretty sweet.

This game is completely awesome. There is not a single "Class" there are premade specs when you first get it but you can modify everything. I highly recommend buying it!

It's a good singleplayer game, maps are somewhat boring and there are only few players in multiplayer. I love to play bot-matches and for this the game is perfect.

The lock on thing can be avoided by equipping a certain item that either makes it harder or impossible for people to lock on to you. I havent played the game yet but thats what I read on multiple forums when reading up on the playerbase.

After doing my own research, I'm going to wait and see what the sequal brings to the table.
But I think I found a new great series to try out
(I wish there was a demo)

Videos of the tournament TimeGate hosted
Final round; AOD vs TAW

And yes, the first kill of the match was a guy getting crushed

people seem to think that an auto lock on feature ruined the game or similar.Meh, the ones that griped the most about lockon were the ones that either couldn't figure out how to counter it or were just bad
