I'm new to UFO series. I've always wanted to try UFO, but having too outdated graphics (not that I'm very conscious about it as I also play Baldur's Gate and Jagged Alliance) or being bad recreations of the original, I never really got into them. This isn't really top-notch graphics, but it is beautiful enough that you'd love it. But gameplay is what really sets this apart. It is a bit complicated for first-timers, but once you get a hang of it, you'd love it more and more. The game lore is also well written. The more you read, the more you get sucked in; and believe me, there's *a lot* to read! Finally, the music...it's beautiful and fits perfectly to the game that it helps in immersion. Overall, the game shouldn't get anything lower than 9; but it is a 10 in my book.
A decent-ish mod, filled with competent gun fights, puzzles, and adequate pacing. Story starts off intriguingly but quickly fizzles out in favor of pretty much non-stop action, which is disappointing. There's some nifty set pieces, though - particularly the tram sequence. Everything else is pretty much run-of-the-mill but, as I said, competent enough.
Ended very abruptly and left me feeling very cold about the whole thing. I get the feeling you can do so much better.
This game is really ******* boring.
It feels like a complete rip-off of Spelunky.
It is also too long and the progression is slow.
The physics engine sucks ***.
I could justify buying this for 4 or 5 bucks but 8 is too much.
And the price is going to be even higher later.
You could play the free version of spelunky which is better and more enjoyable.
I did not enjoy this game and i don't think many people will.
So far 8.
The mod seems unfinished. Units look nice and its better than previous version.
However I would like to see all of the vanilla stuff out of this mod.
And more eye-candy definitely.
-more loading screens
-new building icons
-new city strat map models etc.
Also you guys definitely need to code starting units.
EDIT: New review
All is great now, and I am enjoying this mod very much
