Red Crucible 2 is another Facebook 3D Game powered by the Unity Web Player. It is a first person shooting game wherein players compete for domination. It is similar to UberStrike in the aspect that both are shooting games where the strongest win but it does differ in a variety of ways that makes playing Red Crucible 2 very different and enjoyable from the usual run-of-the-mill shooters.
Firstly, Red Crucible 2 is for hardcore shooting fanatics. While the game mechanics are easy enough for newcomers to quickly learn, Red Crucible 2 does not bother with any tutorial of any sort at all. You are given a list of maps to join and you are expected to dive right in the thick of battle.
Secondly, the maps are huge. We’re talking open world huge here, where the horizons are basically nonexistent. While the resulting graphic is amazing, the gameplay suffers slightly from it. Respawn locations are very far from the thick of the action and the huge maps means that you may be traveling for quite a while before you see friends or foes.
Thirdly, vehicles. From helicopters to tanks to fast vehicles, a huge array of playable vehicles are available in Red Crucible 2. Hopping on a vehicle is a must for any game because as stated before, the maps are enormous and players will spend quite a time on the trek alone if they choose to venture on foot. Similarly, clumsy humans are killed with ease with vehicle wielding players so fighting on foot is clearly a no-go in this game. In the unlikely situation that you are caught in a foot fight, the arsenal of weapons in Red Crucible 2 is also impressively vast. Weapons available vary from snipers and handguns to rocket launchers and missile turrets.
What really sets apart Red Crucible 2 from other games is the teamwork involved. While everyone has a chance to use vehicles, each vehicle has strengths and weaknesses that other team members must compensate for in order for everything to be successful.
All in all, Red Crucible 2 is an extremely fun multiplayer game to play. There are some minor hiccups but with the amount of content available, those are just minor gripes compared to the staggering virtual world Red Crucible 2 presents us with.
