BattleZone, the name itself indicates the theme of this game.It’s a free to play multiplayer online game designed by Arktos Entertainment that will test your shooting skills for sure.
BattleZone offers stunning graphics, nice combat scenes and an enjoyable gaming environment that completes the package of this unique shooting game. Just like any other multiplayer online game, BattleZone too uses a character progression system and the progression of any player rises after completing several multiplayer matches.
With progression, player gets some money as a bonus that can be used to access highly equipped weapons. Other than money, they also get some skill points that they can be used to upgrade their gaming character. As a shooter, initially you may find all the standard controls not that accurate as they should be but while standing and crouching, shooting accuracy increases. In any shooting game, player has to switch between long range and short range weapons. To enjoy any shooting game thoroughly, it should have an instant switching between weapons and this feature works very well in BattleZone. Without making any delay in switching between weapons, this feature adds an interesting complexity in the battlefield and gives a chance to the player to test their extreme battle skills.
If you are playing BattleZone as a free to play shooting game, graphics are average but does not suit the standards of any battle game. Lighting is done as per the requirement and the surrounding environment and characters look real and true to life. Talking about its sound quality, BattleZone surprisingly delivers accurate weapon sound and somehow manages to create shooting environment around you. However, it may take some time for you to get used to its user interface but not to worry as this game has an easy to understand basic tutorial that helps fresher to understand basics of the game so that they can start playing the game very quickly. There is a mini-map located at the bottom side of the screen that is done quite well and is helpful in detecting the location of the enemies. BattleZone allows the player to earn some money during shooting that can be used to purchase new weapons. They can unlock new weapons only after spending their currency.
In BattleZone, Death Match and Point Capture are the most commonly matches to be played. It does not have any defend-and-destroy kind of match that most of us would love to play. Moreover, it does not have even enough number of maps but yes whatever maps are available, they are done very well. As this game is in progress, so you can expect that the developing team will come up with some new maps and matches so as to add enhanced features in the game.
Overall, BattleZone is a fantastic game where you can purchase new weapons from the currency you have earned and can also earn some extra features for your character. This shooting game definitely needs to be played and that’s too for free. You try it out and share your reviews with your friends.
