Double Action is about diving, flipping, and sliding your way into 90’s action movie-inspired multiplayer mayhem. The game is completely free (no hats!), runs on Valve’s Source engine, and has been in development for about 3 years.
I'm kinda... disturbed that there hasn't been a review as of yet. But here's one I guess.
This mod basically decided to bring the fun of games like Max Payne and Stranglehold into the magic of a first person multiplayer shooter and executes this surprisingly perfectly within a limited engine like Source.
Even with the lack of players, when using bots I can have an absolute blast for hours on end just flying around and blowing everything up with doves going everywhere.
Really the only problem I can say about this mod is just the depressing lack of a community, which I really don't understand.
Great multiplayer action! Really takes me back to the hl1 mod "The specialist" superb fast action combat, everything slows down so much fractions of of a second feel like forever. Now in its current state it is not without it's flaws being it has little content, fairly bad looking models and such but it came out it's kinda in a beta or alpha or something but it's really good and fun. It bathes itself in simplicity and some times making things more simple is what makes the more addictive games. Now my experience with the specialist the action controls feel a bit wonky but it's really well done though i see people spamming the action button and just flying everywhere but it only helps them a little.
Some of the guns are a bit OP and others a bit under powered as well. If you have a good reaction time and aim you can get kicked out of servers with the under taker like i do lol
I look forward to seeing this mod progress and grow and i'd love to see additional features, maps and etc. I'd really love to see some remakes of classic Specialist maps because those were so amazingly good.
The guns could use more recoil to add some challenge and stop people from being unstoppable and the grenade spam is over the top but in the future hopefully they'll add more balance. I'm hoping to see weapon addons and stuff like they had in TS.
To the development team i say really good job! I can't wait to see this become something more! I wish i was better with my modeling to help out but my skill level is a bit to low to make a difference. Keep the updates comin!
