Renegade X is a mod dedicated to recreating C&C Renegade in the new generation engine, the Unreal Engine 3. We all believe the Command and Conquer series is a very special one, and its fans have been following its games for over a decade now. C&C has been one of the most successful videogame series in the RTS Genre. Our modding team believes that C&C Renegade is truly a hidden gem in the FPS genre. C&C Renegade's specialty was its multiplayer mode, because it was not mindless killing like most games. A player was thrown into a battle as soon as he joined a server, in which teamplay was the only way to win. The game revolves around a war between the Global Defense Initiative, and the Brotherhood of Nod. Each faction would have their own base of operations consisting of buildings. A team had to work together to destroy the enemy base, while keeping theirs intact. Obelisk/Advanced Guard Tower (Base defenses) Without these, your team has no automatic defense. Hand of Nod/ Barracks...
Played through half of the campaign and suffered through two system lockups which required restarting my system via the power button. Graphics were pretty decent. Comparable to games from 2008-2009, but the overall (lack of) brightness makes it difficult to discern any details in their work.
AI was pretty terrible. Was difficult to see who and what was attacking you and where it was coming from.
On a technical aspect, the foliage looked good. The voice acting was pretty sub-par - didn't sound anywhere close to the level of professionalism that was in the Renegade voice clips. You can easily hear the difference when they're played side to side. It wasn't terrible, but definitely needed some work. Nowhere near as clear and crisp as the original audio from Renegade.
Here's hoping the MP release will be better. Good try, but needs a lot of improvement - specifically in the stability area. Would love to continue playing past the sixth mission if I wasn't worried about system lockups being a continual problem.
First of all, this is a spectacular good looking video game. Pure 10.
The game details are also pure 10, this really looks like you are in C&C Tiberium Dawn universe, pure 10.
The reason why I rated it with only 6 is because of gameplay. Infantry movement is same a flying Fly (Insect). Infantry is moving too fast all over the place. Shooting at someone with a weapon is a real challange. Infantry firing rockets do too little damage. Taking down a vehicle with RPG is not fun at all, Infantry firing rocket do 5-10% damage at max.
The game details are awesome, but gameplay is not fun at all...
Also a Good thing is a Bot support for SP.
They done a really good job, but so far it's only game to enjoy when you play solo, when comes to MP, "flying Flies" everywhere...
If they decide to slow down infantry movement (maneuvering) to a level of todays BF3/4 or CoDs. This would be a GOTY and they would earn a lot od money.
