Loadout isn't a bad game; there just isn't much to it. If you're worried about how a PC game translates to the PS4 controller, you'll be happy to hear there are minimal issues. The control isn't perfect, though, and despite the better part distribution system, there isn't much to talk about aside from weapon crafting.
The weapon-crafting is great but given the manipulative microtransactions this free-to-play shooter is not worth your time, let alone your money.
New shooters need to be special to stand out in an arena of bigger brands, and Loadout doesn't quite have the quality required to back up its ideas. When you've got a good gun, the game's not a complete washout – but the free-to-play affair ultimately blows its load with a lack of variety and a lousy sense of humour. You'll find the fun faster if you cough up a bit of cash, but only diehards will stick around for more than a handful of rounds.
Loadout's fast-paced shooting is worth a free download, but you might not want to crack your PSN wallet to progress.
I love to waste time with video games, but Loadout seems to point the gun in the wrong direction and then fire dud rounds at all the wrong ideas.
Loadout isn't some new breed of free-to-play, but it does a very entertaining job of balancing what you can play with when you can pay. Being a low level isn't painfully boring, and gaining experience or good weapons doesn't require real money. The fun level increases if you pay, but isn't decreased by not paying. All in all, despite the free-to-play model that may make some players look away, Loadout is an obnoxious and discourteous third person shooter worth playing, even if it's not a 'must-play' title, and you might even find yourself willing to fork over a few bucks to get that offensive t-shirt or kick-ass weapon mod just a little faster.
Loadout is great fun to play and the fact it's free means there's nothing to lose by giving it a go.
Loadout brings its robust weaponcrafting, extreme violence, and goofy sense of humor to the PlayStation 4, and with entertaining results.
Loadout will take you on a full filled ride along with an in-depth customization system. You won't believe you are getting this for free.
In conclusion, then: Loadout is a riot. Loadout is free. It does not, however, provide a model that is conducive to me wanting to spend any money on it. The loadouts of the name are fun to make, but ultimately lack the variety they believe themselves to have. These things seems like a failure for a free to play game, but perhaps I am simply not its cash audience.
