Alliance of Valiant Arms, commonly abbreviated as A.V.A, is a tactical MMOFPS powered by the powerful Unreal 3 engine and published by ijji. The game is set during a fictional war between the European Union and the Neo Russian Federation. The game has without a doubt some of the best graphics out there for any MMO.

Alliance of Valiant Arms is one of those rare free MMO gems that has both top notch graphics and extremely in depth and varied gameplay. Heck, A.V.A can easily hold its own against pay to play MMOFPS games like Counter-Strike Source and even Call of Duty 4 both graphically and gameplay wise. Those who played other tactical MMOFPS games like Combat Arms, Blackshot or even WolfTeam should be able to quickly familiarize themselves with AVA as most MMOFPS games tend to be unusually similar. Alliance of Valiant Arms runs the same Unreal 3 engine that Huxley: The Dystopia uses, so expect at least comparable to or even better graphics. Perhaps the most notable aspect of AVA worth mentioning is its numerous game modes. They are:

Annihilation - Annihilation mode is basically team deathmatch. The European Union (EU) and New Russia Federation (NRF) duke it out across one of the game’s many levels. Whichever team reaches either 80 or 180 points first wins.

Demolition - Demolition mode is essentially the same ‘plant the bomb’ game mode popularized by Counter-Strike. The EU team must plant a C4 bomb in one of two bomb sites while the NRF must defuse it.

Escort - The EU team must ‘escort’ a tank that slowly moves through the map while the NRF have to use Rocket-Propelled Grenades (RPGs) to destroy it. If the tank reaches the end of the map before time runs out the EU team wins, otherwise the NRF wins. This is one of the more popular and unique game modes in Alliance of Valiant Arms.

Convoy – The EU team must find and capture a ‘nuclear suitcase’ that is guarded by the NRF on one map before time runs out. Eliminating the opposing team is another way to win a round in Convoy mode.

Free for All – As the name implies, players are by themselves and must kill anyone they see. Whichever player has the most kills at the end of the round wins.

Suppression - Up to four player controlled EU characters must survive against waves of computer controlled NRF soldiers. Players basically have to survive as long as possible. Players have a limited number of ‘respawns’.

Domination - Basically king of the hill. Opposing teams must capture and hold the command post located in the center of the map for a period of time to win.

Survival - Exactly like Suppression mode, but with one one life per player.

Escape - The EU Team must find and kill a set amount of prisoners then battle their way out of the prison area without getting killed.
