In Black Snow Coop you can encounter the same horrors that you went through in the single player mod! But this time together as four players! Choose your character with unique benefits: Fletcher, Ronnie, Craig & Paul!
This mod is created by the genius creators of "Battle-Force" and "The Forgotten Ones". These are also the same mods that use up tons of space for no specific reason, such as unused models and textures.
If you want to play BLACK SNOW, don't play it like this. The playermodels are all ripped off of various websites/games, and the game isn't even good with more than 1 person. Experience the original mod, not this.
This. Is. Terrible. It is buggy, not intended for multiplayer use, and the levels were confusing and buggy. I can understand some people can see past it quirks and bugs and see something good, but I apologize for I cannot see anything good except the mod's concept.
- Story & Character
The feeling of a story is non-existent. Your main task is finding John Matsuda, and that's all you're there for. If you've played the original Black Snow, then the ending is completely anti-climatic and guessable. Characters can be completely irrelevant to the game. The voice acting is horrendous to where it can goes mumbling to incoherency with no closed captions to assist you in understanding on what they are trying to say. The choice of characters are not thought out as the characters you play as are geared with military grade armor while they only wield flashlights. The playermodels are also stolen from other creators/rippers. It would make more sense if the characters were scavengers or the like.
- Gameplay & Optimization
The game would play as it would in Black Snow, but can be close to unplayable as bugs litter the mod. (Had to skip the beginning since the game broke after the intro.) As listed before, your only gear is the flashlight, no weapons. You have a choice of third person and first person, but third person mode is jumpy (Can constantly switch sides when near corners and walls). There are mini objectives (Like finding x to complete y), but it can lack info, leaving you to wander all over the game. Original tasks from Black Snow are left and have absolutely no purpose in the Coop mod for they were supposed to be done by the previous protagonist. Textures in rooms can also go awry (i.e. Full white floors). The shadow monster can navigate in rooms that contain full lighting whereas the original have them move in only dark areas. They are many cons to list in this section, but this is only a taste of what's inside.
Black Snow Coop is something that shouldn't have been made. The original Black Snow is already a great mod and having 4 player coop added into it is superfluous; if you wanted to have a horror experience with your friends, it should be with another game. For the best experience, play the original Black Sn
This is not finished at all and is quite honestly not very good...You should have put some more work and effort into making this stable and not just multiple pieces of sh** glued together with some *****. Good luck with any future projects and i hope you can improve upon this one... There is way to much poor engine design with poor voice acting and even worse gameplay...I am not happy
Well.. that.. that sure was something.
I don't know where to begin.. I have not played the original version but what i have heard it doesn't come close to this level of awfulness.
The voice acting i can forgive, but it should have been replaced with text, or even better, You could have given a hobo 5 bucks and he would have done it more decently.
Players falling out of the helicopter repeatedly in the first scene, the person you are supposed to meet in the beginning doesn't start dialog always, meaning you will have to reset the whole thing again until he does. The black smoke thing doesn't even attack you most of the time and he targets one player so he will mostly ignore everyone else. When more than one player enters a building at the same time they get stuck. The warmth that heals you heals everyone no matter where you are. The full screen effects that a player has, come for everyone (like entering a building black fade). And the list goes on and on..
These are bugs which are relatively easy to fix, but still after that it's not worth the time; because the mod just simply doesn't work as co-op. It's solely a single player mod.
