Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Oh man... I think I'm going to buy this right away. It has a very distinct Unreal Tournament vibe to it... <3

Just played one quick match 1 on 1. Perfectly smooth, controls are easy, the maps are big but with radar it's a cinch to find your enemy. Wish it had more environmental sounds, but that's not such a big deal. Felt very much like Unreal Tournament, but without the taunting. Can't wait to play with a full team.

So far, so good.

played a match. it's pretty cool.

not familiar enough with the game/maps to know if how well it holds up.

That said, here's a chance for all those people who bitched about not being able to "pay once" for unlimited play for eliminate will step up. Sadly, I believe chances are those people will be like "$2.99 is too much".

Done 4 matches already, including a 2 vs 2. Up to Corporal now (2 stripes). Agreed: pretty darn cool. Feels much more grounded than Eliminate, the weapons seem to have more kick. The shotgun is perhaps a bit too powerful, but definitely fun to use.

The matches are nice and short; I can see myself playing this often.
