Angels Fall First - Has anyone tried it?
While I was taking a peek at my "Explore" selection of games, I was impressed by the mix of old-school appearance and battlefront/Planetside 2-like elements of Angels Fall First.
Did anyone try it? I'm a bit wary of early access titles, in particular the multiplayer focused ones – even if they're cool and all, if the population is minimal the game will be dead in a matter of months – so I won't fork euros blindly at it, even if I'm really tempted!

Never got around to try it, all I know is it was an award winning ut3 mod. Which doesn't mean much because a lot of them suck but AFF's development kept going through the years and I still don't care much about it. It looks like a more complex assault mode than onslaught or something.

I looks great fun but I have enough multiplayer early access games that are dead atm. Would love it if the game was great though.

Looks interesting, although as always hybrid projects are quite risky. I wish them luck.

I got it the day it came out. It's not without its teething problems, but it's a remarkably solid and fully featured game for a £10 early access title.
Touching briefly on the downsides, it's still somewhat buggy and unpolished, and it's a surprising hog on the GPU. I suspect all these problems will be ironed out by the devs in time.
The good points: Gunplay is surprisingly solid. You have honest-to-goodness dedicated servers just like Momma used to make. You can lean around cover. AI bots work really well and you can have up to 64 per map. Space combat feels great. You can pilot capital ships with your squad and walk around inside them almost totally seamlessly. You can launch boarding craft with your squad from said capital ship, board enemy ships, destroy their engines and escape before they blow up, again almost totally seamlessly. It really works amazingly well, and is thrilling like few other games I've played.
If you have a tenner to spare and don't mind a bit of in-development jankiness, this game is a ton of fun.

I think I'll have to throw some money at it :)

Every time I see this game mentioned I'm reminded of the classic Nightwish album with the same name...

Ok, so this is why the name rings a bell. Thanks! (I prefer second and third albums and lost interest after that, meself)
