Summary

World War 3 has a lot of potential, maybe that opening statement is a bit telling but hear me out. World War 3 is an early access first person shooter that gamers will instantly liken to the Battlefield series, this carries alot of the feelings experienced so far. Every gun feels unique and heavy, the combat is brutal but the actual movement and progress is quite slow paced. It has vehicles and that alone brings the fun in many ways. With only two modes at the moment, War one is your more objective based mode whilst team deathmatch is self explanatory and surprisingly the busiest of the two modes. Talking of busy, the player count is all dependent on time of boot up. I played a fair few games but never had a full server or it said it did but I hardly saw anyone. World War 3 really needs to improve the loading times, add more of a progression systetand make it alot easier for new players to learn everything quickly and efficiently. In short, world war 3 is no slouch in the genre but needs more time I  The oven to go mainstream.
