Hi guys, today I am here to show a game called Standoff 2 published and created by Axlebolt. StandOff 2, the game aggregates players from all over the world preferably the players from your continent since the multiplayer game has to match the smooth gaming experience it intends to provide with quick responses from both your allies and enemies. Well once you are across the queue you choose the team you want to support, the terrorists or the counter-terrorists, both teams may or may not have equal opponents and the game tries to balance it, even if not it is solely about your kills and deaths. You are going to have a really fun time the first day you start playing this game, whether you prefer sneaking in using a knife or are good at the role of sniper or even better keep firing your enemies down while dodging them and to be honest we had a ROFL moment seeing the militants jump unnaturally to avoid gun shots. Since after each death the player is rebooted to a random spot near their base there is a good chance your allies can scare you suddenly appearing behind you.
Standoff 2 Gameplay and Review
And now let`s go through the gameplay. Well currently the game is in beta and a lot of new options are disabled, as the selection of weapons and their variety. Social option is also restricted right now and will be out soon as the game comes out of the beta stage but this doesn’t affect the flawless gameplay experience. Based on the few hours we spent playing it we found a good variety of battlefields rather say the zones in the game, currently, the game has 3 zones including an abandoned military base, a hospital or mall and a vacated town which are presented in highly detailed graphics and effects.
Weapons have different attack speed and power and are a deciding factor as to how many hits require a kill. A powerful AWM rifle can kill an enemy in one shot but requires reload after each shot which does wonders if you choose to play the sniper of the team and are able to reach a higher altitude with sneaking spot while an M16 or an M4 will be faster and require less reloads which usually are required in a Zombie apocalypse kind of scenario. There is a melee weapon (knife) and a pistol as well but we haven’t been able to select the pistol so far which is a good reason for us to believe the weapon is currently locked out by developer until a future update because we found no option to unlock it since the weapons are in game is under construction, so let’s have some patience until the next update.
It is a little strange to play such a game on a mobile device
