First person shooters for browsers can be very hard to find, not mention, it’s even harder to find good ones. Here is where Pixel Warfare 5 comes in. Most of the times, if a game gets a sequel, there would be only a few reasons that the sequel happened. Sometimes the first game was so bad, but wasn’t really what the authors and developers envisioned, so it’s given another try. But more than 3 quarters of the time, a game is given a sequel if the game was a huge hit, or was a success at the very least. Both of those reasons apply for the 2nd game of a series, but if a game gets 5 sequels, then the latter reason is the more logical one. Just that number on the game, Pixel Warfare 5, already tells you a lot of the game’s quality. The game itself is superb and is one of the best first person shooters on a browser to date. Enough of that, though, let’s get to the good stuff.
Pixel Warfare 5 is a first person shooter game that borrows from the mechanics of some of the best shooters for consoles and PCs, like Call of Duty. You also have the graphics, of course, which is pretty good considering this is a game that uses just the browser, so you aren’t using the full power of your computer (it is made using the Unreal Engine, though, so you should expect it to be pretty good). The sprites and backgrounds of the game is also reminiscent of Minecraft, as it actually looks like they ripped the stuff out of that game, but taking from a great game doesn’t necessarily make this new game bad, in fact, I believe it adds to the games charm.
The game controls smoothly and uses the same controls as your general first person shooters on PC. You’ve got your W key to walk forward, pressing S will make you walk backward, and pressing A and D will let you strafe left and right, respectively. Shooting is the same, as well. You use your mouse to adjust your view and aim your gun. Pressing the left mouse button will shoot using your current weapon, and when applicable, using the right mouse button will aim down your scope, making your shots more accurate. You will have a ton of different weapons upon starting a game including sniper rifles, pistols, and machine guns. Choosing a good weapon will be up to your style of play, so find the best one for you and kill everyone!
If you’ve been looking for that first person shooter fix, then you went to the right game. This game is pretty good and the community is also filled with great people. The server is filled with a lot of players at any time of day, making it a really fun place to go to, not matter what time you play!
