Ballistic Overkill is a very impressive online multiplayer first person shooter that focuses on fast paced, easily accessible gameplay that rewards player skill and avoids getting too bogged down in realism.
The style of fast, flowing run and gun gameplay in Ballistic Overkill is fondly reminiscent of CoD and Team Fortress, and even surpasses them in some ways. You can choose from one of seven classes – Berserker (close combat expert), Vanguard (assault specialist), Wraith (ranged assassin), Shadow (speed and stealth), Grenadier (explosives expert), Tank (burly machine gunner)and Marksman (intelligence specialist). You’ll notice that there are no support classes there – in Ballistic Overkill everyone’s a killer. There’s also a nice selection of weaponry, skills and skins to unlock through gameplay, and the game allows you to make multiple load outs for each class.
It’s a fun game, that offers action packed multiplayer PvP FPS action that you can easily pick up and play. And crucially, the generous health bars mean that you can take a few bullets before you die, making it a good option for players who enjoy a bit of fast paced first person combat, but are fed up of being pwned every 5 seconds!
