Personal review
Initial impressions, and what I've been hearing from other players and actually long term beta testers, is that the game itself is extremely stacked for marine side winning. The original NS was fairly balanced, but this new one just isn't even close. Currently I can't recommend this for anyone due to this massive imbalance (it really requires that the marine commander is Really Bad, anything else doesn't really matter that much), but unless they fix the balance issues, people who are interested in this or were fans of the original, are better off with the original. Outside of the balance issues this Could become a good successor for the original.

Editor note
Originally NS2 was supposed to use Source engine but this was scratched due to technical problems with it and licensing costs, instead UW went and created their own game engine.
