Game Review on Mar 23rd, 2013 - 1 person agrees 1 person doesn't

I absolutely adore this game. So yes, I am definitely biased.

It has all the things which make a team based shooter fun - ie: teamwork, guns. But then it gives us asymmetric sides, so it's guns vs. teeth, claws, arm spikes. This leads to tense confrontations between spinning, careening packs of aliens and their ill-protected, rifle armed prey.
But then on top of the fun of individual encounters, on top of listening as aliens skitter through the ventilation systems, on top of waiting for the perfect moment to appear and tear marines to shreds, there is an entertaining meta-game.

The team's commander views the battle like an RTS, building and researching, instructing the rest of the team of the current state of the game and ordering them to do specific things. An overall strategy usually quickly emerges, around which the team unites. The goal, however, is always the same: Destroy the Enemy's Command Structure - A Hive for aliens, a Command Chair for marines.

The to-and-fro of battle makes for surprisingly cerebral games, with a Comm deciding that the team must control some rooms but being willing to give up a few others. Deciding where and when to drop a second base. "Shotguns or Proximity Mines first?" "Is anyone here a good fade? Yes? Researching Blink." "Onos in spawn! Onos in SPAWN! ONOSINSPAAAAAWN!"

A smart shooter.

THIS IS THE BEST MOD EVER!!!!!!!!!!1111!!!!1!!!!!1!!!11!!

OK, so it really isn't. It gets points for being slightly less ****** than his previous stuff, but then loses them again for still being pretty bad. It's kind of like the first mod you ever make, ie: terrible, badly thought out, and generally unpolished.

On the bright side, EA named a unit after him!

I enjoy this game immensely, the minimalistic interface and level design coupled with challenging levels.

If the game has one flaw, it is the fact that there are only so many levels - the flexibility of design means that even I can see the near endless possibilities for spectacular levels built around the simple mechanic of rolling a ball around.

Truly a superb mod. Even without the GLA or Europe, the latest release feels whole and complete. The addition of Russia adds such a new dimension to the game, and the well thought out and sometimes ingenious units allow fluid and enjoyable gameplay.

The only downside is that the gallery is filled with beautiful renders of EU units, but we don't get to use any of them. That is the heart breaking thing about this mod, there just isn't as much as I'd like there to be. There never is.As such, only 9 out of 10 for now, because I need to be able to rate this 10 when they release the rest of it. :P

Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the best Gens/ZH mod I've ever played, and I will definitely keep playing it for a long time to come. It performs brilliantly in LAN, making it a continuing favourite between friends.

Lovely mod, play it. Get some friends together and smash the **** out of one another with Obyekts and Sentinels and such, just play it.
