I had trouble finding Blacklight Retribution on PSN, but it's there, hidden away underneath the digital-only games.
It looks old as hell, and is trademark-unreal pop-in at its best, but it's a decent CoD clone.
Oh yeah, and it's free-to-play.
@falserelic: No, not really. There is a bar that shows up under the game on the XMB, but it usually lets you start playing within a minute.
thanks, that's cool to hear. At the moment I'm debating whether to get the ps4 or Xbone first. It feels like they both have the same features. I can't seem to decide which to combat first.
I rather enjoyed my time with the game back in 2012 but stopped playing in favour of Planetside 2 then eventually Warframe. I couldn't put up with just how janky Blacklight seemed in comparison. Maybe it has improved since but the limited map rotation, bugs and hacking quickly ruined that game when I was playing it. The weapon configuration is really awesome but to really get what you wanted required a heck of a time investment and grinding. You could unlock a weapon at level 15 for example but still be unlocking parts for it 100 hours later or just dump some cash in and get it right away and completely remove a lot of the challenge as a lot of later upgrades for weapons add elemental effects and damage.
@lamarrsanomaly: I've seen some hitches in framerate, but it usually seems to happen if the host has a shitty connection. Wish they had dedicated servers for this game. I like the game, I just wish it was easier to get into a game. Sometimes during the day I can't find a game at all.
