While I liked a couple of the ideas behind Dead Alliance, they're not capitalised on to create something truly interesting. What we're left with is a painfully generic, often broken online shooter that's begging to be put in the ground, preferably under ten feet of quick-set cement.
The game is in desperate need of some tender loving care, its shoddy gameplay and connection woes take away almost everything that's unique and actually entertaining about it. From social media comments I see that the developers are looking for ongoing feedback to improve the game and maybe, just maybe, it will flourish. With some amazing concepts and a clever strategic approach to the first-person shooter genre, Dead Alliance had me hooked – it's just a shame that the current final product is a broken mess that should stay dead.
