Is there any option to play offline with bots though? So I can learn the map layout and practice when I don't have wifi

This game feels really cod like. However, I'm starting to get annoyed with all the melees. It seems like everyone loves to get up close and knife. It's fun all right for the guy who's doing it but not so fun for the victim. Maybe a hardcore mode can be added in the future? With no grenades as well. Btw, I have like no friends right now, so anyone want to add me? Username is Ddyracer.

It's nice looking but it's all indoors like old Doom or Quake, not as fun. EXO-Planet is better and it's free.

EXO is interesting, but it doesn't feel as visceral as Archetype -- in part because it's a TPS. In any event, there's definitely room for more than one approach to an online shooter.

Anyone else dislike the autofire? Not that it doesn't work.... that it works to well.

I dislike autofire, you can't really sneak up on someone unless you aim down. The graphics in this game are great because it's all indoors and it feels boxed in. EXO-Planet is wide open. I've never played another game like Exo Planet on the iPhone. But, I've played Archetype before. Hence the name.
