A fantastic mod. Thank you for your detailed instructions on how to tweak the many settings, especially the steps to disable motion blur and depth of field. Aside from those two features, I'm loving everything this mod has to offer. I'm looking forward to Clear Skies and Call of Pripyat once I've completed Shadow of Chernobyl.
experiment? HA don't get me started......
One of the worst games ever created and a complete waste of your time. Its lously grapics makes you want to quit soooo bad its almost funny. Honestly this game really looks it was made in a coulpe weeks and not well delvoped. The story? well I don't see the point of the of this story it makes go into these pointless tests and are so easy to beat while the signs you read is trying to make you think it hates you. With its boring and terrablie grapics this game doesn't derseve the hights. If your reading this review heres a advice DON'T DOWNLOAD IT if you already did DON'T PLAY IT AND DELATE IT. Its really that bad........which is why i gave this game a 1/10 (and yes i know this game is just a experiment but its a really bad one)
This has been the best full conversion story I have played so far, why I chose 9 for my vote you will see down below with 5 reasons, Quality, Story, Length, Scares and Lag is the reasons (Do not worry about atmosphere and voice acting and that, it's all in the quality, which has a high impact for my choice!
The Quality of this Full Conversion is really, really amazing, I loved it and all, although the voice acting was a little bad and the subtitles could have been better. The Story was very catching and great fun, maybe a little hard to understand at first, but it's good, loved the ending (no spoilers) The Length was perfect took me 10 episodes to finish, which I think is just enough for a full conversion mod. Scares, there wasn't that many scares but I played alot of this mod before I put it on youtube, but some scares was really good and some were not. Lag, there was almost no lag at all, I actually cant remember but I think there was no lag at all (been a long time since I played it)
Quality: 9, Story: 9, Length: 10, Scares: 9 and Lag: 10 - So as you can see this full conversion was beautiful in my opinion, setting us into a hospital is just creeping the f*ck out of me, I hate horror games that has it's story set in a hospital, but I also love it, be proud!
I liked this cs alot and now I choose out of 5 reasons why I chose 8 as my vote, Quality, Story, Length, Scares and Lag is my reasons to the vote I gave you!
The Quality is very good, creepy atmosphere and the voice acting was average, I liked it! Story, well played I have to say, small and short story, well explained before you started playing it ;) Length was like 20 min. of gameplay (I know because I played it on youtube), it was probably enough for 1 or 2 episodes so this drags down my vote a little, custom stories that is 3 episodes long is just long enough to me, so it drags my vote down a little. Scares, well it's hard to decide, it wasn't really many scares and I didn't get that scared by them but sometimes it made me a little scared ;) Lag, there was absolutely no lag at all in the cs which is very good and sets my vote high.
Quality: 8, Story: 9, Length: 7, Scares: 8 and Lag: 10 - Overall It's a worthy and BIG 8 from me :)
Really nice graphics, amazing job on the environments, and also the control system is very unique. however I just didn't enjoy it that much. I was wandering through without really thinking, and I wasn't sucked in as there is no story element. I realise there is not meant to be a story but as someone mentioned, it is all 'stand on a red slab to open red door' etc etc. I don't want to be too critical, it is a free mod after all - I hope this is taken as it's meant to be - constructive criticism.
I loved this mod so I gave it a 7, I basically set my reasons for 5 reasons which is Length, Scares, Story, Lag and Quality, you'll see my opinions down below of all these (I know there is no atmosphere and stuff in the reasons but I include them in the quality :3)
The Quality was very good and creepy and all in all of that, very good. The Story is a little like the original story, but twisted it a little which is kinda a good thing, but also a little bad thing. The Length of this cs, in my opinion, it is WAY to long to be a cs, you should have made it into a full conversion instead. Scares aswell was I dont really know, it wasn't so many of them in my opinion, a few very good ones, I have a full playtrhough of 16 episodes, the first scare was in episode 1 which is my biggest jumpscare I have ever had from a cs. And then the Lag, at some areas it was lagging a little but not so much so it was pretty much almost no lag at all.
Quality: 8, Story: 7, Length: 7, Scares: 9 and Lag: 10 - So in overall I chose 7 because of these reasons
LivaLink is the latest First Person Survival Shooter from Ben4Views. It takes place in the future and has the well known "Aliens have come to kill you, kill them first" theme. Overall, this package is fun to play with, but will leave you wondering why the developer put so little into it.
Presentation: The game has a familiar look to it. At first glance, you might think BorderLands but once you get into it, it has it's own surprises. The menu is nice which gives a good first impression, but once you find out how little options the game has, the excitement drops a bit. There are only 2 maps and 3 types of enemies. The map design is linear but visually appealing. The enemies on the other hand, look very low quality and un-appealing. The music on the other hand is there, but very little. Only 1-2 tracks exist.
Gameplay: Aside from the visuals, the game-play is very basic. You have your standard modern day weapons with a futuristic coating on top. The recoil for the main assault rifle is very frustrating and hard to use, but it gets the job done. The A.I. is challenging which saves this game from being instant boredom. There are a few other weapons in the game, but none of them are game changers. After completing my first play through of the game, everything became repetitive. The weapons were fun to use, but I wish the game had more to offer.
Verdict: LivaLink suffers from being generic, but it does have it's moments. The developer states there will be updates in the future that include more maps, weapons, and enemies so this game could have a bright future. The fact that it's only 10$ makes it worth your money, but not more than that(at the moment).
Visuals: 7.5 (Appealing maps and menu, but poor enemy design)
Gameplay: 7 (Challenging A.I., decent game-play)
Audio: 7 (Nice music but not enough. Sound effects are solid)
Lasting Appeal: 6.5 (Fun for a short while, but repetitive afterwards)
Final Score: 6 (Decent game-play, lacks originality)
Not scary. I don't know if it is supposed to be, but it seems like it. I will review the game as though it were not to be scary:
The maps are beautifully made. Very brilliant. Really, they are.
The game's shortfalls however is the voice acting and the game's length. It is short, but it is a WIP. The voice acting, TERRIBLE. Ugh.
It'd be nice if you reskinned Doctor Kleiner at the least. The game's puzzles are typical for a modern day shooting (read: easy).
