Monday Night Combat.

The release of MNC may have swayed many to believe that it was a class based shooter, And by all means, it is a class based shooter. But haven't we all played this game before?

You're probably thinking here, Fobby, this is clearly an indie game just ripping off what many have done before. And yes, and I did my very best to not judge this game to tf2 in the slightest.

but get this guys

Spoiler:
it's not like tf2

Monday Night combat is an interesting game, it's a mix of the FPS and the Tower Defense style of game (well, eventually they'll branch out of this one game mode.) It's simple really, you level up your perks and then you set up your defenses to stop these robots from attacking your "Moneyball." The game starts you off with a tutorial setting, which gives you the basics of how to play the "Assault" class. This tutorial is good for understanding the basics of the Assault class, but only the Assault class. They didn't exactly think about putting any kind of hint (well they give you some kind of joke thing whenever you get fragged) or anything of the sort.

Silly, yes, but the game is still in beta.

So before we get to the classes, let's not confuse you (too) much by giving you a general idea of the game.
- It's a 3rd person shooter
- Left-Shift is usually a special stun or glide
- Unlimited ammunition
- It's tower defense
- Enemies drop money
- Buy upgrades get better things
- An annoying mascot comes out and you have to shoot him to get money
- You have to defend a giant flaming disco ball

That's really all there is too it.


So let's get to our classes now.

The Assault
- Even in Offense, Defense and Specialties
- Glide function
- Balanced

The Tank
- Defensive
- Slow as fuck
- Shit weapons

The Sniper
- Typical Rifle
- SMG
- Sets up traps

The Gunner
- Minigun
- LABELED OFFENSIVE AS MAJOR THANK GOD YOU DID SOMETHING RIGHT
- Doesn't have an OP Melee function

The Assasin
- The only class with a dedicated Melee weapon
- Disc Shooter
- (no backstabs)
- Fast

The Support
(haven't played this too bland, think engineer from tf2)

I have to admit, nothing you haven't seen before, and there isn't much too spectacular about them. Also, you can make a custom class if say, you don't like the balance of the Assault.

So this game isn't spectacular, however, it's not something I'd put away fast. What you've just read is about 30 minutes of me dicking around on single player.

I'm pretty sure this game is fantastic online, it's a game that was designed to be played with friends.

And it's not tf2, just in case you're still thinking it. It's more of Ratchet: Gladiator mixed with DoTA.

Overall, I gave it a 7/10. It's not something you'd want to hurry up and get, but it's a good game.
