Angels Fall First is an objective-based FPS game fought both in space and on the ground. Featuring complex gameplay, from flying gigantic capital ships, piloting fighters, and manning turrets to the traditional vehicular and infantry combat, both planetside and inside the starships themselves.
Very good game.
2 of 3 most common complaints are fixed now:
Laggy space battles - game got new, completely rewritten net code
Bad sounds and unsatisfying gun play - addressed in last patch, practically all sounds were replaced with something better.
Only thing whats left is new UI and it's already in works.
About low population - game actually plays fine in mixed matches with small player counts due good bot support.
No game is perfect and AFF has the standard "Unreal Engine 3" blue fog, but if I had to describe it I'd say it's Battlefront II, plus Battlefield. Great visual design, great audio design, runs really really well, and has good bot integration (performance decreases dramatically with more bots, but I can still get 1080/60 on max settings using a i5-6600k)
Great voice acting, solid action during FPS, and the concept is outstanding.
I love the different roles one can play. You can pilot a drop ship full of infantry, conduct assaults and boarding actions as infantry, fly interceptors and bombers against the enemy fleet, or even control the capital ships themselves. Every role requires time and effort to master, which is awesome. However, the controls are relatively intuitive and easy to grasp. It really is a great game thus far.
The AI commander is pretty good, but I would say the AI for infantry still needs work. Their pathing gets weird in close quarters on ships. Also, the graphics during ship-to-ship fighting could be improved, especially increasing LOS and fidelity at long range.
It's still in Alpha phase, so bugs are to be expected. This dev is doing it right; they haven't started marketing yet, and they want to polish the product prior to release. Get it now, and watch it blossom into a great game later on. It's worth a little money.
FPS ON SPACE IT'S ALWAYS MAKE ME PUKE.
