WWI Source: Fight in the rain soaked trenches or charge over No Man’s Land to battle in the War to End All Wars. Use authentic weaponry to conquer the enemy, call in artillery strikes to take out enemies en masse, or use chemical warfare to disable your opponents! WWI Source is the first and only World War I game to be developed for Steam. All the current WWI mod teams (‘The Trenches 2’, ‘Fields of Horror’, ‘WWI Source’) have united to develop the best World War I game to the Steam community, using the latest Source engine. Please visit the official website for more information on WWI Source and the team.
This mod has alot of potential. Many of the maps pack great atmosphere, and the effect of being under an artillery barrage is simply terrifying. That said the mod suffers from terrible physics, particularly in it's shooting mechanics, there is only one style of game-play, and the community hosted realisms get boring very quickly. A great concept, with sup-par execution.
I don't mean to bring you down, but I found this mod pretty dreadful in its current state. Your attempt at realism by forcing the player to "pull the bolt" every time you shoot is annoying but I guess some people will like it.
The Officers' ability to drop toxic gas and artilery is terrible. It's very frustrating to get killed randomly, and it adds nothing of value to the gameplay.
The biggest problem I had when playing was really the red effect when you get hit. It paints nearly your entire screen red and only leaves a small circle in the middle, and it makes it impossible to play. I'm guessing its supposed to limit your vision, but it hurt my eyes to a point where I had to suicide every time I got hit. I hope you guys keep working hard on this mod to improve it. My advice is "gameplay before realism".
