I just downloaded this a few days ago and it really is a fantastic free FPS. As with any FPS, there's a bit of a learning curve, even if you're normally good at that kind of game, but I've been getting the hang of it.
I like the idea of all the equipment/weapon customization, but it is a little tough to sift through all the options and there are still some bugs to be worked out (ex: when I receive a level up award via in-game mail, I can't see it until I logout and login again, then I can't activate it until I logout and login again). Being a F2P game with options to buy upgrades, it does seem like one of those games where paying players will have a huge advantage.
But all in all, it's a really cool game with some unique features for a FPS. If you don't mind getting your ass kicked while you figure things out and level up, it's a lot of fun.
