Totally badass.

Shattered Horizon is a multiplayer space shooter set after the moon half-blows up. So you shoot people.

It's made by Futuremark who are more well-known for making Tenth's computer blow up because his hardware sucks, but the gameplay is surprisingly awesome from a flipping benchmark company.

Of course, since they're concerned about their graphics and aren't willing to sacrifice a few sacred cows, the game runs terribly on full settings even though it's a very desolate setting. I haven't played it on the lowest settings because I like my sacred cows but even then, the people tell you it will not work on anything older than Vista with DX10.

So, gameplay. It's really amazing, all tactical and stuff. You go around asteroids and use a bunch of hiding spots. There's only one gun, but it doubles as a fancy assault rifle and a sniper weapon and a grenade launcher and you can melee with it too. It handles very well so I haven't become bored by it.

There are four maps, but they're gigantic and have three gametypes each, one deathmatch, one control points mode, and something else I've forgotten. Maybe I haven't even played it yet. There's apparently going to be some free DLC coming out periodically with new maps and such.

I like it a lot.

It's quite unique, fantastic, and great fun.

Highly recommend it if your PC can run it.

This looks like another Brainless Ego Shooting Action with fancy graphics and floating in space to me...

I just cant get anything out of shooting around

But it's tactical.

Lots of brain involved.
