Blacklight: Retribution Review

 

A stand-out game in the free-to-play crowd -- but buying in could be cheaper.

Good, meaty shooting; X-ray vision is a game-changer; heaps of options for obsessive weapon tweaking

Minor balance concerns; no way to test weapon components before buying; slow leveling; can get expensive quickly

Blacklight's been one of our top free-to-play shooters since beta, so it's no surprise to see it score well. I still wish that games like this would offer an optional $30 to $50 pack that let me buy a full traditional game's worth of content up front,...

While not without flaws, Blacklight is a good option for anyone looking for a new competitive shooter. Great shooting mechanics and deep customization options make for an addictive combination, and its free-to-play model makes it easy to jump into with...

Blacklight: Retribution doesn't stand out from the crowd, but this free-to-play shooter offers a decent amount of bang for your non-buck.

Solid shooting mechanics ; Item balance keeps non-paying players competitive

Hardsuits are clunky and awkward ; New weapons and gear are costly

Hardsuits often start appearing several minutes into matches of any type, once players have earned enough CP to start purchasing them. They can be tremendously effective on the battlefield--using one to defend a node during a King of the Hill match,...

The internet is an amazing thing. With just a few mouse clicks we can access countless amounts of information, order pizza or, most importantly, shoot a total stranger in the face. Blacklight: Retribution...

Free ; Lots to customize ; Depots add a cool dynamic ; Training mode

Matchmaking issues ; Uneven playing field can be frustrating

Can a shooter that lets you see through walls possibly be fair, much less fun

Further, while the game is fun enough to play, it exists purely for its own sake. There isn't an overarching meta-game at work; Blacklight: Retribution is a multiplayer shooter in which advancement is met with more shooting of strangers without a...

Blacklight Retribution PC Review

 

Blacklight Retribution is an extremely competent multiplayer first person shooter. Set at some point in the future, two rival factions battle for control of resources, territory and inexplicably disused industrial complexes. Why? Who knows but it has...

It’s free ; Extremely well balanced ; Looks good and plays very solidly ; Huge amounts of customisation options

You may feel you die too quickly ; The customisations may be too overwhelming in the beginning

Blacklight: Retribution- PC

 

This game is a serious FPS contender, and its freemium status should not diminish your expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend you jump in and give it a try. It'll cost only your time to give it a whirl, and I am certain that it'll be time well spent.
