Visually disappointing. A good structure but unfortunately the same old latency issues, with bullets not registering then insta death. Good fun when it works though.

Might try the PC version and see if it works better with tighter ping ranges.

PC version is alot better, larger player base over the servers and alot of active clans etc- quite a few patches with improvements.

Its quite a enjoyable game to play with friends- as taking a base then holding it against 50-60 enemies in tanks/aircraft etc.

The good thing about planetside 2 is how the battles can scale up so quickly- from just a handful to hundreds.

Graphics their not the best but they where never going to be, as to get the player numbers you have to reduce graphics to get a certain level of performance.

Yeah, I like the way it plays and as you say, the way it scales up so quickly. But the latency coding issues are there on the PS4.

Will give it a try on the PC and see if it's any more balanced. The trouble is, with the possibility of huge numbers of players on each server, I don't hold out too much hope.
