- Unique cross between DOTA and a third-person shooter
- updated weekly
- new content is free
- cash shop only includes cosmetic items (This isn't a Pay-to-Win game)
- random prizes allow people to get cosmetics without paying
- nice selection of characters to play
- Matchmaking could be improved by having a larger playerbase, and a larger playerbase would exist if matchmaking was better, a catch 22.
- high learning curve
- a lot of opportunities to get angry at other players :)
- more difficult than your average game if you're coming from a DOTA-style game
If you aren't bothered by childish remarks that are present everywhere on the Internet and have patience to the learn the game, it can be very fun and rewarding.
It combines elements from third person shooters and Defense of the Ancients or League of Legends (MOBA is the common acronym but I don't like it, so this is the only time I'll mention it).
There are (as of the review) three game modes,Super Crossfire (the main mode), Turbocross, and Super Blitz. Super Crossfire is a strategic battle of pushing robots down defined lanes toward the enemy's "Moneyball", which must be destroyed in order to win. Teamwork and awareness of your surroundings are necessary. Turbocross is, in short, a faster-paced but somewhat less strategic version of Super Crossfire, for those who like the faster gameplay option passive level bonuses are removed, damage output and movement speed is higher, and turrets can be rebuilt. Lastly, the newest game mode, Super Blitz, puts a group of players (up to five) against infinite gradually-stronger waves of robots trying to bring down the Moneyball. It's up to the players to build and maintain turrets to help defend the Moneyball as long as possible.
The setting takes place in the future, where (Super) Monday Night Combat has become the new NFL. Crowds of spectators come watch these Pros, cloned from the DNA of various figures of historical or cultural significance, fight and kill each other for fame and cash.
In short, it's excellent. And since it's free, there's no reason not to try it out.

"What you have with SMNC is an incredibly enthralling, very deep, and balls to the wall challenging MOBA style third person shooter. It's unique, it's got innovation seeping from every single pore. It has style up the wazuu, a huge amount on all sides. It is a gem that shouldn't be hidden, but for some reason it seems to be."
A sequel to Monday Night Combat from Uber Entertainment. Updated once a week by Uber Entertainment.
SMNC is a third person shooter hybrid. Somewhere between Team Fortress 2 and League of Legends and with a very funny sense of humor.
You play as one of a growing number(15+) of clone combatants in a team of 5 players against another team of 5 players.
The objective of the game is to get to the enemy's base and destroy their Moneyball. The enemy will have defense turrets along the way, you must escort the robots that come out of your base down the lane to destroy their turrets and eventually their Money Ball. Only the robots can take the shields down that cover the turrets and Moneyball, once this is done, it is up to you as the player to deal most of the damage. Battle the enemy and their waves of robots as they try to do the same to you. With classes ranging from healers to stealthy to snipers to heavy damage dealing to all around pros, the game has a class and a character sure to suit your play style.
SMNC offers plenty of costumes and cosmetic items so change the appearance of your Pro, ranging from taunts to flair, to mustaches.
New game modes are always being worked, with Blitz mode on the way. Where you as a player will play by yourself or with others, facing robot opponents in waves of growing intensity. How long can you last?
Nowadays it seems the (skilled) people that I once played with have either clearly surpassed me and group together with other veterans or have given up on the game (there are only new people left and they either get stomped or continue to play bad because no one has shown them the way).
Hopefully something can be done soon...it's lame waiting for a match to be found and then I get frustrated and play another game.

A free to play game? Sure I'll give it a try. After playing I can confidently say that it is worth every penny of free. It would even be worth more pennies than zero. Read morePublished on March 6, 2014 by Jonathan Bacon

I have played SMNC and MNC. SMNC is just a marketing game. If you want a better similer game then play Monday Night Combat.Published on June 6, 2013 by David
