Reviewing version 0.29.0 (latest as of 10/15/12)
The game has a lot of promise. Playing is fun and easy to learn. The setting is beautiful despite incomplete graphics. The gameplay is solid despite some balance & grinding issues. You get rich, level up & add party members like an action RPG. Construction & Faction diplomacy plays like an RTS.
~~~ An excellent game that captures the feeling of what a true wasteland would feel like for wanderer. There's lots of room to identify with a lost fighter and fill in his (there's no her yet) personality with your imagination. The landscape feels and looks epic even though it's not quite finished yet. The "sense" of the place is so well done.
~~~ This is a squad based game. You can recruit many people to form a gang of travelers. You could form a group of traders or fighters. It's hard to progress solo (but you can) so recruiting extra help is practically mandatory.
~~~ Once you're wealthy enough, you can start constructing homes and interiors for yourself. It's a promising idea, but right now there are only a few buildings and they have no interactive function in the game environment.
~~~ The game has plenty of bugs and will often crash on you for no reason. Hit F5 often to quicksave.
~~~ There's a lot of grinding in the game. There's very little to do yet; making money, getting new gear and levelling up are your only options.
~~~ Gameplay isn't balanced. Being an honest trader is pointless compared to luring bandits into a town and having the town police kill them for you. After they're dead, you can loot their bodies for expensive weapons and armor.
~~~ There are no quests, conversations or architectural diversity. The developer says those will come later.
I´m giving it 7 and not less because it seems you have made all content for it. Otherwise it´d be worth a 5. The theme is cool and there are some blinks of good design. But overall feels very very rushed. Lighting is awful and layout is linear-noobish-like. HL2 stock sounds really break the inmersion and there´s barely any fun to have here.
Still, kudos for designing all models and textures. Some of them are great (like the fish and octopus statues).
definite 10 out of 10
had a friend over today and had a crack at gungame with them and both of us had a ball :)
however i would like to see a tick box for hardcore option as the original was so much fun to play with -4 handicap given to everyone :)
and although it wasnt an issue today, another option to turn off hit delay protecting the target from an almost instantaneous 2nd shot would be fantastic :D
can anyone else say "COD KILLER"?
Well, I played the game around two times through. Not scary at all in my opinion, only scares in the game were cheap scares, and the ending was pretty dumb. Not sure what actual ending I was supposed to get but fell to my death on both of them lol.
You guys should be ashamed, it's disrespectful to the modding community, people put lots of effort on those skins for CSS for someone to steal them and call it their own mod, the models are just CHEAP and BADLY reskinned, you don't fool anyone.
This is worse than gmod.org in terms of stealing credits and content..
No words to say.
This is a very good engine for beginners and advanced users alike. I have been making games with this for a while, and it is one of the few "good" game creation softwares that i have stumbled upon. Also, anyone familiar with the Slenderman's Shadow series should know that this engine was used to create those maps, so you know that it's pretty damn powerful!
