This game is proof how early access makes developers lazy. They got paid early (kickstarter + early access) and are now dragging their feet, with vehicles being half a year late and causing constant crashes for over a month now.
They sold over 200 000 copies, which equals 7 400 000 €. Even after taxes they are sitting on several million € and all that they have to show for is a few grey maps?
The game still has severe issues:
1. The server files have a backdoor. A server host company (NFO) found it. Asking the developers about that got my forum account removed, complete with all my posts deleted.
2. After vehicles were introduced, severe crash bugs appeared that are still not fixed. Telling the developers about these issues causes reactions from them pretending they are not there to outright bans or complete account removals. So while the game crashed reliably on servers with vehicles for 80% of players, the developers spent time going to gamescom, then wrote an "update" describing how they need rest from the hard work they supposedly did.
3. The maps are still very sterile. Most are barren moon landscapes with mininmal amount of assets. Some of which cause severe performance problems on very powerful hardware.
4. Gameplay is very repetitive and devoid of variation.
5. Complete lack of progress on everything, new assets, weapons, factions, map quality being the worst problem.
6. Hosting a server requires the admin to undergo a degrading process where your server is constantly monitored by the developers and is forced to allow them developer access. If you refuse that, your server ends up on the "custom server list", and the main menu clearly hints at players to avoid these servers.
The developers do not get to tell a server admin how to run his own server which he pays for with his own money.
I'm kind of torn on whether I should hit the thumbs up or thumbs down button. The game itself is fantastic; an ARMA-like shooter that focuses on infantry combat and easy to use squad commands for great teamplay, and it's got a huge community and numerous packed gameservers to play on. On the other hand, it's just extremely unstable at this point in its development, and it's difficult, for me, to even make it through a game with a crash to desktop or some other unfixable error.
I suppose I'm going to recommend against getting the game at the moment, unless you really want to help with the development process. As the game's development progresses I'll update this review to reflect it's new state of affairs.
