Savage 2: A Tortured Soul takes the best of the FPS, RTS, and RPG genres and blends them seamlessly into an extremely addictive and complex experience. Anyone who's seen the game in action knows that each match is full of possibilities for epic moments and amazing displays of skill and strategy. Take the reigns as your team's commander from an overhead RTS perspective with superior strategic insight -- or join them on the field from a mixed action RPG and FPS view with a wide array of powerful classes and carve your path to victory.

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

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.
