OUT NOW

This team-based multiplayer shooter has virtually come from nowhere to raise the bar in the sub-genre – as this oozes ingenuity from every pore.

This slick and charmingly crafted world (which pays homage to the likes of Team Fortress 2) pits a unique international task force of heroes – each with differing abilities and weaponry – who must band together to restore peace across this war-torn arena, and by combining forces with teammates exciting rewards are unlocked.

Some may argue that the lack of modes doesn’t warrant a full retail price, but if you put in the time the tactical depth shines through with every intense multiplayer showdown – which makes this just about the best at what it does.

Rating: 5/5
