To kick this off , let me explain, I am not paid to like or dislike the game, So I have a human’s opinion, I like some stuff I dislike others. If they where paying me it would all be 100% like. If I was paid to dislike , it would be 100% dislike.
I am not a fanboy who has been chewing on his blanket since he first saw the previews drooling on his keyboard waiting the demo. I just heard of the game less than two days before I got the demo. I gave the game an honest try and an honest feel . for those of you who know what color the main guy’s shoe laces are and why they are that color because you read the entire pamplet and news article and website front to back and upside down awaiting a clue to some imaginary riddle, Good for you, The sales pitches worked fine for you. Anything more than a sentence or two in response to this, really is overboard and you may want to ditch the yoda mouse and lunchbox.
Well I gave the game a play, or two. The demo is found here
The machine I am using is:
Direct x 9 c
AMD 2800+ Sempron 87*F
NVIDIA BFG 7600 512MB agp 110*F
2 Gigs 3200 RAM
Loading the demo the first time is a little bit drawn long, images are excellent and look very fun,Game ran fine at full settings on windows xp pro, just the dark setting and colors with some weird blue trim in the parachute scene. While looking in on the “suit tools” or options or what ever you see a circular list of stuff, you have no idea what any of it is, because it is unlabeled and it does nothing to assure you that you are on the right thing except for the cloaking,inviz.PNG or what ever that ten second thing is. there seems to be a strength,armor and cloaking that happens with the suit.
The fights where pretty great but it seemed very “grand theft auto” ish, it seemed like the bad guy just kept spawning up everywhere, and if you wanted one to just go away, turn your back and he will disappear when you turn your back. The narrator or guide or as the game called him something like prophet or what ever, he was a bit of a nag, so speakers went down just long enough for me to get killed by a guy that was not there a second ago. bad guys always know where you are , unless you are cloaked, then they just flip out and run in circles. The instant you re-spawn they know exactly where you are and are shooting at you within in a blink of time.
The water. Not so good. It just did not have that water look that you would expect from this new of a game. I mean there where bubbles and some sounds that let you know you are in water, but it just does not look like water other than your guy is now waving his hands in front of himself as if he is swimming, unsure if that run button helped any, could not tell. bullets hit you when you are under, and you can not pop up secretly , at all if you are being chased .Yes you can run out of breath. and yes he can outlast most of you, but does not live for ever underwater. sorry I did not see a timer nor a meter that let’s you know how much air is left, you just got wait till you hear him grunt or panic or make a painful sound. beach.PNG
You can pick up guns for spare bullets, and to carry or swap more guns . You can pick up numerous objects and chunk them , at people or just for the hell of it. I never found a med pack. No idea. You can enter vehicles , but it seems I haven’t figured how to man the guns on them, and or how to drive the vehicles. Maybe you can , maybe you can’t. I am not so certain that you can. I have no idea why all the bad guys looked the same, why they glow red or many things, not much to tell me why or how, I just assume it’s the pants the main guy is wearing.gunfire.PNG
Overall I give the game demo a rating of 6.5 . I will not be buying this one for myself . I might get it for my son, he will not take interest in it for more than a day, but just in case one of his friends have the game, it might be fun to lan party it. I can’t see it being very fun online. delta force 2 meets doom meets half life2.
