    Your opinions on Blacklight: Retribution?

    So I was watching some live streams via "Live on Playstation" (which sounds very stalker-ish I know lol) and came across somebody playing Blacklight: Retribution. Seemed like fun, and as a bonus it's a free-to-play title.

    I was just wondering if anybody has played this title yet? Did/are you enjoying it?

    I go back to it from time to time. I like it. I don't love it nor dislike it.

    I have a number of issues about the game, but then I have to remind myself that it is a free game (despite the in game currency that you can purchase).

    I just find it incredibly laggy, it's odd really, as I seem to have very good games (in terms of personal performance) and then a shockingly poor game. There just seems to be no consistency (or maybe it's just me )

    It's really laggy for me and it's a pretty common complaint overall. They probably need to fix the servers. The PC version is a bit better since it's less grindy. The overall gameplay is solid though. You have a "wallhack" type of ability and you can also summon mechs. Graphics look decent and sound is pretty forgettable. It'd be a lot more popular if it was less laggy.

    Blacklight Retribution was one of my favorite free-to-play FPS on PC. I was excited to play it on PS4, but the lag is too much for the game to be playable. Guess I'll stick to PC version.

    Annoyingly when you're looking through the scope/ironsights the movement is so much slower and much more rigid. There isn't the fluidity that you get with other FPS such as BF or CoD. That's a slight annoyance I have with Blacklight (and I would've have killed that player running up the stairs at the end )
