Blacklight: Retribution is the latest from Perfect World Entertainment. This first person shooter mmo follows closely in gameplay formula with most of today’s blockbuster FPS titles such as Call of Duty and Battlefield series.
It is a fast paced, adrenaline pumping first person shooter based in a futuristic urban warzone. Building upon Zombie Studios’ predecessor, Tango Down, Blacklight Retribution provides FPS enthusiasts with a massive arsenal of weaponry and gear ranging from bleeding edge side arms to massive mechanized Hardsuits.
Blacklight: Retribution offers 5 game modes as of right now, Domination, Team King of the Hill, Team Death Match, Free-For-All Death Match, and Capture the Flag. The maps are relatively small, allowing players to quickly spawn and get in on the action and they aren’t littered with bushes and tall grass that players can camp behind.
The game also offers players variety of choices on customizing their character’s equipment and weapons, allow player to change the looks and functionality of their futuristic combat suits and modify variety of weapons with attachments, different barrels, stocks, ammo and more. Different equipment offers different stats that compliment different styles of play, for example some gear will provide more protection at the cost of slower movement speed and vice versa, while weapon attachments and modification can improve weapon spread, damage or zoom. As players earn points in game by killing enemy players and completing objectives, more options in item customizations are made available to their characters along with different skills to choose from.
Overall the combat is satisfying, the graphics look top-notch, the classes and the weapons are awesome and the maps are fun. If you are in to Call of Duty and Battlefield then this game is for you! Best part of all .. It's free!
