A first look at Ghost in the Shell Online in action

It's just another FPS, yes. That was not a surprising development.

Now that we know that Ghost in the Shell Online will definitely be coming to Western shores, there’s all the reason in the world to be very curious about how it’s going to play. The fine people at Steparu took the game’s first Korean beta test for a spin to see how it holds up.

The verdict? It’s an FPS. It does what it says on the tin. There are a handful of mildly neat systems with some bracingly overpowered skills, and there’s some fun stuff to be done with the tachikoma, but at the end of the day it’s a pretty standard FPS. Of course, fans of the series can take heart that it’s also not doing anything wrong. You can check out the full review; the video walkthrough of the tutorial mission is below.

Firelilyx Idk. There was a PS2 game back in the day that wasn’t bad (for a PS2 game).

Silentcrypt I agree that it would have been cooler to build your character rather use a recognizable character from the series. Anyways, the group is called Section 9.

ManastuUtakata Considering the creator GitS, the setting was already sexed up. All Neople did was make a FPS based on it.

Anyways, a living breathing dystopia type MMO would be better for an Appleseed set outside of Olympus in the war torn ruins of what was once civilization.

goldstariv Fortunately this game will be a little bit more secure than say Combat Arms. They’re using Gamebryo instead of Source. So there will be that first couple of seconds in Global CBT where there will be no hackers. >->

Silentcrypt Not really. Blacklight doesn’t really have any classes or class abilities that combo off each other, which is apparently going to be the thing for this game here. Also, I don’t think there’s a mention of everyone getting a Visor.

Bashmet Well, if they hit the PVE modes hard in GitSO, they might just scratch that Syndicate type of coop. Coop mode in the last Syndicate game was pretty much that game’s only saving grace, and it was pretty amazing.

It looks like Blacklight: Retribution and Ghost Recon Phantoms had a baby.

To me it looks decent, but they have to understand that Hackshield does not shield ANY game from hacks these days.. And as usual for F2P FPS games, of course, the hackers will want to test their latest tools here..

I wish I could find out how big a market there is for an actual cyberpunk MMO, but there are days it feels like everyone has moved on and this is what’s left.

Back in the day, we used to play a lot of Quake. We had a friend who used a naked woman skin which we all thought was hilarious since he couldn’t see it LOL!
