MechWarrior Online: A Tactical Mech-Based FPS Game

Image
MechWarrior Online is a tactical shooter featuring vehicular combat at a much slower pace than most shooters launched within the past 10 years. It's a free-to-play game on Steam where players fight in massive robot suits.

The free-to-play shooter features a variety of extraterrestrial maps, where players will also have to watch out for extreme temperatures and other environmental hazards. It's much different than other games of this genre..

Maps in MechWarrior Online are fairly large, and it will be dangerous for you to travel throughout the maps aimlessly. Instead, you will have to plot your course across a field and be cautious. This is a tactical shooter, so being careful will pay off in the long run. It's not uncommon for you to get shot down by long-range fire, so it doesn't matter how careful you are, you will run into unexpected trouble often in this game.

Most of your time will probably be spent in Quick Play, where you will fight battles for rewards only, as …

PlanetSide 2 Has The Biggest Online Battles of Any Shooter

Image
PlanetSide 2 is not your typical first-person shooter, it currently holds the Guinness World Record for the largest first-person shooter battle. This online battle featured over 1,158 players at one time, and it's a record we don't expect anyone else to beat in the near future.

This free-to-play online first-person shooter was developed and published by Daybreak Game Company, and they released PlanetSide 2 in late 2012. The original PlanetSide game was released back in 2003, so the sequel was long overdue.

Based on the Forgelight Engine, PlanetSide 2 is capable of supporting thousands of players in a large scale map. In this game, three factions fight for territorial control over planet Auraxis.

PlanetSide 2 is available on both the PlayStation 4 and PC. Metacritic gave the PC version an 84/100, while four other large review sites gave the title a 9./10. That's a 9/10 from Eurogamer, GameSpy, GamesRadar, and IGN.

In 2012, IGN awarded PlanetSide 2 the "Best MMO Game&qu…

Team Fortress 2 - The Best Free FPS on Steam

Image
Team Fortress 2 is a free online fps game available on PC via Steam, and although it started out as a lean game, it is now a feature-packed game with many weapons, maps and game modes. If you can put in the hours of playing you will be heavily rewarded with upgrades, but the game is also very welcoming to newcomers.

There's a reason Team Fortress 2 always makes the "best free fps games" lists across the internet. It's a first-person shooter with nine distinct classes, and they are constantly updating it with new maps, equipment, hats, and game modes.

Yes, hats are a big deal in TF2. In this game you can really customize characters, and you will have the ability to collect, craft, buy and trade weapons and hats.

The game features all the typical FPS game modes, as well as ones unique to the franchise. King of the Hill, Payload, Arena, Capture the Flag, Control Point and more.

Tribes: Ascend Review - "Fastest" Shooting Game

Image
The pace of the game means a lot to players like me, who prefer fast-paced action over dull and boring gameplay. Yes, it is a free-to-play game and many critics claim you have to pay to win - but that argument doesn't hold since Tribes: Ascend doesn't let players buy items that you can't earn by playing.. at least not items that affect the game. 
When I first heard of the game and looked it up I thought "hey, this is the perfect free Halo alternative" for PC. After downloading and playing the game I quickly found that it was much different, although I would find it hard to believe the creators of Tribes: Ascend weren't inspired by Halo.

Which Free-2-Play FPS Games are more like Pay-2-Win Games?

The problem with most free-to-play games is the fact that many members can simply pay to win, especially in RTS games. However, most free first-person-shooters seem to be fair for the players without cash for upgrades. There was one time when I was spending cash on Warrock every week and when I stopped, I still did just as good. So, upgrades can be nice but they don’t always mean you will win or do better than other players who haven’t paid for them.

But still, there must be some free-2-play FPS games to avoid if you refuse to pay for upgrades and add-ons. Well there are a few games that come to mind and if you do the research I will bet you the reviews agree with me, especially Battlefield Play4Free. They really know how to get their money’s worth, because Battlefield P4F is huge and players dump a lot of money into it. If you can’t pay then don’t play Battlefield Play 4 Free.

Many gamers feel that Combat Arms and Team Fortress 2 are the worst Free-2-Play FPS games ever made, althoug…

Brick-Force Review | Free Browser FPS Game

Image
Brick-Force is a unique FPS game simply because you can build your own "virtual playgrounds" - brick by brick just like Minecraft. Like Forge mode on Halo, you can play a multiplayer sandbox mode to build the world you play in. With that said, there is a lot more to this game than most free fps games, but still, I don't think it's that great.

Sure, it's a fun game and it has it's pros, but I think there are many better games to play. I'm not particularly a fan of the graphics and overall visuals of this game, but I usually don't like browser-based games to begin with. There is a client version you can download but it's easier to play it in the browser, although it's very nice that they provided us with more than one option.

It's awesome when you create the entire environment that you're playing in, and it's even more awesome to build the environment with your friends on social networking sites. Many players use their smart phones …
