Summary

Warface is a free-to-play game that is a scaled-down version of Call Of Duty, I say that as it has the core first-person shooter gameplay and mechanics of the said game but it’s scaled back with fewer twists like killstreaks. In its place, Warface uses none of that and instead plays just as a plain Jane shooter. It does encourage microtransactions though and it’s all on timers and limited uses which is not a nice way to do things. Weapon skins are featured throughout the game and whilst they may look cool in the true light of day, you hardly see em or your opponents except on a skippable death screen. I came away from Warface not enjoying it as much as Breakout and though this game was several steps behind many other games in the genre, it’s fine for a freebie, and playing every now and then as a mainstay, it is woefully shallow.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
