Gunz 2: The Second Duel
What is Gunz 2?
Gunz 2 is an online action game developed by Maiet Entertainment, and is the sequel to Gunz: The Duel. Gunz combines pretty standard video game mechanics into a pretty unique combination. It's a third person shooter where one can enter deathmatch games, not unlike Call of Duty or Counter Strike. However, it allows you to make equipment and weapon purchases with money earned in-game, called bounty in addition to aquiring experience and leveling up, not unlike an MMO.
If that wasn't enough, you can also perform acrobatic feats, such as running along walls, and if you don't feel like using a gun, you can slash your opponents and engage in swordplay.
With these elements combined, it creates a rewarding gaming experience because as you play more games, you grow in equipment and in skill as a player.
You can also team up with other players and take down huge bosses, some of which are larger than 20 meters in height, in Maiet's dynamic PVE gameplay.
Gunz 2 was finally released after a nearly 5 year wait. Its original release date was for 2009, then development was pushed back to 2011, then nothing was heard and some were regarding it as a new Duke Nukem Forever. Though in 2012 people began to see some light at the end of the tunnel when the gameplay trailers started to be released. After the beta period in the Fall of 2013, the game is now in open beta and available on Steam.
