Quoted from Savage 2: A Tortured Soul Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Savage 2: A Tortured Soul reviews & previews
"Leave it to a team of 11 developers to succeed so resoundingly where behemoths have failed. Savage 2 isn't perfect -- squads are semirandomized smatterings of players unable to communicate or coordinate fluidly as of this writing, and the game can be overwhelming to new players -- but its ambition is matched only by the amount of fun you'll have playing."
"Any upgrade is a happy one though. S2 has made an effort to make sure that level 10 characters can still be taken down by smaller characters and don't have too big an advantage to subtract from the fun of less skilled individuals. For those hardcore players there will be plenty of opportunities for them to see their stats versus all of the other players with a pretty substantial stat tracking and ladder system. On top of that, every game played will be recorded and posted on the Savage 2 replay site so that players can study tactics or just watch themselves run around and kill people. S2 also believes having these replays will help them police cheaters since after a few complaints they can simply go over the replay code and find any inconsistencies."
"Ultimately, we feel that Savage 2 is an enjoyable game that offers a satisfying alternative to the genre-bound tunnel vision of most other games. In combining the team-based action of games like Tribes and Battlefield with an original fantasy setting and a ground-level RTS mechanic, they've come up with something that's unlike anything else on the market right now...except the original Savage, of course. If you're looking for something different and don't mind hanging your fate on the skills and abilities of your fellow online gamers, then you'll find plenty of rewards in Savage 2."
