Report article RSS Feed Savage 2 - Tactics Overview

In a game that mixes the best parts of several genres, there's so many ways to play.

Posted by stenchy on Aug 14th, 2009


atching the S2 Games' live stream of Savage 2 yielded a number of generalizations from its hundreds of viewers:

"Are you playing World of Warcraft?"
"This looks like WoW PvP."
"This game is free?!"

While it does have similarities to that massively popular MMO (which designers should take as a compliment), I'd have to argue that Savage 2 cuts a lot of the fat. It's fast, instant action without the monthly fees and the extensive grinding just to get to the same point of comparison. Savage 2 has a lot of great elements plucked from various genres which add to its depth of strategy, but first-timers can get flustered at their inability to be effective (hint: buy items in-between spawns). Nevertheless, S2Mercenary has striven to educate others about Savage 2's greatness. Here's a couple of videos talking about some high level tactics.

Before I left the stream, there was a some good quotes that came from fans of the game which stuck in my head.

If you haven't tried out Savage 2 for yourself yet, check it out. It's priced just right, arguably one of the best games to be had for absolutely free.

if you like this game keep an eye out for Heros of Newerth, which is a standalone revamp of WC3 Dota map. Its incredible.
