No No No No and No.
 
this quick pickup for 15$ Is not well worth the waste at all. So the game just effectively released yesterday I pre-ordered it thinking hey it can't be that bad and I loaded it up to give it a try, after downloading the game on steam and then launching it the game has a small bunch of files to extract or download before you can play, once In it seems your forced to play a tutorial before venturing any further into even the options menu.
 
the game has a rather out of control feel to it in terms of looking around with the mouse sure you can turn the sensitivity down but i feel that just makes you more vulnerable anyway aside from that ramble the game looks a lot like team fortress 2 a game I don't really like at all, but seeing the coins drop from the npc mobs in the trailer and hearing you get to upgrade your skills drawed me to try it , however it seems you can only upgrade your 4 different skills with cash you collect in game for your class up to level 3 in one game and all is reset after the game ends. another rinse and repeat game. 
 
so the biggest thing that bugs me about this game is the assassin class , I'll go no further after explaining this because I'm not writing a review here, I'll give the game a few more try outs though however I Don't see me going with it anywhere. The assassin class can go completely invisible and walk around and 1 hit KO any class from behind leaving the only diffirence being in the hands of your enemy assassin , which is relatively unkillable unless they are jumping on a teammate or doing something stupid like running in the line of fire. a even slightly clue'd up player playing a assassin is extremely annoying and the class its generally skill less which made me first 3 games on the different servers a nightmare of  constant dying to female figure every 10-20 seconds after spawning 
 
so all in all I wouldn't recommend buying this game. That all said just so you know this isn't my official review or opinion on the game It's just some thoughts that went through my mind when trying it out and I'm just not sure if it deserves any more thought.

So all of the comments up to no.5 below are to my blog above, I'm editing this because obviously according to the comments below It's a impulsive and unfair rant which I've come to realize after giving the game more of my time. So I've spent some more of my precious time with this game and found it to be quite enjoyable and I definitely have to eat my words nom nom nom. although what I said before wasn't 100% fabricated the assassin can still be an annoying one hit KO annoyance  sometimes but can easily be avoided if you know what your doing. And have discovered the other classes have there annoyances as well but in regards to the assassin if you are lulling about in the game casually you are going to constantly die to them if you aren't keeping both eyes open and it's going to be annoying but It certainly Isn't enough to bring the game down at all It can actually be a fun challenge stopping them , but they will get you! and me being color blind n' all they always eventually get me despite my efforts
 
So If you hated Team Fortress 2 like me, Don't think it will be the same with this game there's a lot more to it. This game will take you further than a 15$ lunch will on Saturday I'm finding all the classes very diverse and incomparable to each other in terms of fairness its like dota/heroes of newerth hero diversity, situation situation situation. It's alot of Fun if you let it take you there , so if your looking for something to play that's reasonably good and cheap this is probably the game for you, I actually came to realize and appreciate this game a bit better when I tried out Breach, another cheap steam game that came out , and boy does it have some lag problems, that said what I failed to realize is how stable this game MNC came out , I mean that's what we expect for our money with games these days but most of the time this never happens with most multilayer releases, one day later dedicated servers were up and I was satisfied
 
I will say the achievements are abit excessive 2500 kills of turrets and all sorts , wah I'm not really sure I'll be playing the game that much , but hey if some of my friends buy it maybe, So If you haven't bought it yet and are stubborn like a friend of mind and think its now to late you've missed the hype your wrong go grab the game and jam

I don't like your run ons and your lack of commas and the way you write and the way you don't really explain things too well or say much that's constructive and this thread in general so I stopped reading halfway through and now I'm writing this post to let you know it's a lot easier to get someone to read your posts if you take the time to put in some punctuation and remove the run on sentences and stuff.

I disagree with almost everything you write ... just one thing: Neither can the Assassin go completely invisible nor can you 1 hit kill every other class.

@davefromabove: Ok, where to start with this one?  

 this quick pickup for 15$ Is not well worth the waste at all. So the game just effectively released yesterday I pre-ordered it thinking hey it can't be that bad and I loaded it up to give it a try, after downloading the game on steam and then launching it the game has a small bunch of files to extract or download before you can play, once In it seems your forced to play a tutorial before venturing any further into even the options menu. 

So? You have full access to the options menu from inside that tutorial.
 

the game has a rather out of control feel to it in terms of looking around with the mouse sure you can turn the sensitivity down but i feel that just makes you more vulnerable anyway aside from that ramble the game looks a lot like team fortress 2 a game I don't really like at all, but seeing the coins drop from the npc mobs in the trailer and hearing you get to upgrade your skills drawed me to try it , however it seems you can only upgrade your 4 different skills with cash you collect in game for your class up to level 3 in one game and all is reset after the game ends. another rinse and repeat game.  

Out of control? Most PC games have mouse sensitivity control, crank it down if its too high. Non-persistent unlocks is a design choice as well, you can't dock them for that, its to keep the game fun and balanced.
 

so the biggest thing that bugs me about this game is the assassin class , I'll go no further after explaining this because I'm not writing a review here, I'll give the game a few more try outs though however I Don't see me going with it anywhere.

This could not be further from the truth. Assassin's are SUPER fragile and don't have cloak that lasts forever. The cloak is also easy to see when assassins are close and makes a fairly distinct noise when in use. Also, Gunners and Tanks do not die in one hit to an assassin's backstab. Not to mention the fact that any assassin who kills you near turrets or a teammate is going to die fairly shortly after.
 

so all in all I wouldn't recommend buying this game. That all said just so you know this isn't my official review or opinion on the game It's just some thoughts that went through my mind when trying it out and I'm just not sure if it deserves any more thought. 

So, in the end you say "Don't buy this game, but this isn't my official opinion"
 
My conclusion: You are new to the game and haven't figured out how to play it and made a fairly impulsive and unfair rant. Play the game some more, it gets easier the more you do.

@davefromabove:  
I think you can quit the tutorial by pressing the escape key.  
I agree that assassins can be the most annoying thing in the game especially when everyone picks it, but roll a tank or gunner and AOE after they hit you there's a good chance they will go down then.

As a Tank I pretty much always won battles with Assassins - as long as I've got upgraded health and don't get backstabbed, I absorb their first hit and kill them in one shot in response. I imagine they could be quite annoying to other classes.

I quite enjoyed this on the 360. A trick with assassins is just spin around so they face stab you, that will leave them vulnerable for a brief period and you can kill them (even in one shot in some occasions).

I'm loving this game, I disagree with davefromabove.
