Natural Selection 2, a game that many thought would never see the light of day is finally doing just that. Developed by Unknown Worlds, the game is a sequel of popular Half-Life mod Natural Selection, and sees two teams comprised of aliens versus humans pitted together in an FPS RTS sci-fi battle to the end.

With a rifle in one hand and the will to learn the steep learning curve, Kosta Andreadis took to the battle to see whether Natural Selection 2 really does live up to its development time.
What exactly sets Natural Selection 2 apart from other competitive online shooters is its blend of classic corridor team-based shooting that has become a PC-staple for decades now with the strategy elements found in RTS games like StarCraft. On paper this may sound a little gimmicky or even at worst, something that’s different enough to be a fun diversion for a few hours -- but in execution the end result is surprisingly exceptional, and more often than not, brilliant.

Surprised it has such a high score! I thought this game was going to bomb hard mostly because of the development team and their decision to make their own engine.

If the neg points are all learning and UI and not bugs then that is awesome news.

Never played NS but have heard good things. Im looking for a online FPS for multiplayer fun. This could be good.

Yeah because this is such a heavily marketed game with tonnes of money and a giant publisher behind it. We're super shill here.

So did they ever get their Dynamic Infestation going?

I hope so, it was the main reason they built their own engine IIRC.
Posted 10:28pm 30/10/12
Yeah it is in. They have just released the new version of dynamic infestation yesterday I think (haven't played in a while). The previous version was a placeholder.

I have a spare copy of NS2 I would swap for something -starcraft 2 beta would be good :P

Is there seriously no ADS in this...? Cause as good as the game sounds, not having sights would shit me so bad.
Posted 07:48am 31/10/12
No need for sights really. fuck all recoil, super fast moving enemies, PC only game.
Posted 08:48am 31/10/12
I have a free copy of NS2 that I can gift someone.

So long as you're a QGL regular that I recognize, all yours.
