    Think Battlefield 2 but in the distant future with more emphasis on bases. Difference is, you fight to gain land rather than a map finishing to see who wins. There is a constant battle to gain as many bases as possible eventually owning whole planets.

    Sign up here:
    http://planetside.station.sony.com/reserves/

    You gain experience as you fight, gaining levels allowing you to customise your character on what you will specialise in e.g. sniping, flying combat/transport air vehicles, engineer, stealth etc.

    Its 100% free so give it a go. Graphics are slightly outdated but the screenshots dont do justic, the game engine is still very good.

    I've always wondered what this game was like. I didn't think anyone was still playing it anymore.

    I'd d/l it and give it a go but school work's kicking my butt.

    I played the shit out of it when it came out. I just got a sub again though. it's a great game and they really should make a second updated version. co-op is perfect, it makes teamwork really work (better than any other fps). the graphics are dated and the lack of hit boxes pisses me off. I'm pretty bored with the game tba. I would buy ps2 in a second if they ever made one though and def worth checking out.

    I quit playing when it stopped working with my computer after a patch. Happend to many others as well from what I saw on the forum.


    Was a blast to play though...

    I tried it out again recently. Pop is too low.

    They should do something to focus the fighting so that there is always a defense for every attack.

    And they should remove the Expansion requirement to spawn the BFRs.

    Was in the Open beta back in 2003, wish it had more to offer(IE player base). The world was so fucking huge It was hard to find people and not get pwnt soon as you got there.

    This was an awesome game back in the day before they turned it into zerg vs zerg. My company pioneered hotdrop tower capping, fast base caps, and other tactics. I miss my infiltrator/hacker/Gal pilot. :o
