Scourge of War is the best American Civil War real time tactical battle game that exists.
It has the largest scale of any such game I've found. We've had multiplayer battles with up to 22 players and 80,000 troops on maps of 25 square miles.
It is very easy to mod and has a thriving multiplayer community. It's a rare game that can have really competitive multiplayer that is very replayable. It doesn't get boring.
The game itself is unlike any other out there, with its combination of scale and strategy where the terrain and fog of war is critically important, just like in the Civil War.
I like the mod because a lot of time and effort went into development. And seeing how this is the only mod I have seen with movie cut scences and didn't have to borrow any of them from Tiberium Wars, so this mod is a really nice project that C & C Labs Mod Development Team did. I would recommend this simply because the overall complexity of this mod is awesome. If you downloaded this mod, and say it was junk, then you need to get your head examined, because this is one of the greatest Tiberium Wars mods ever to be made.
I'll start by saying what was great and unique about this mod.
Your in a team based battle through out the game more akin to online gaming. To progress you must gain ground by pushing up otherwise the enemy just keep coming. Theres no cross hairs so iron sights or from the hip shooting is necessary.
What I thought need polished a little is the story and dialogue.
Overall I enjoyed the first part quite challenging and fun, also different point of view of the HL2 world
Somewhat funny at first, but very boring game mechanics make this not very fun to play, I'm glad it was short. The game has a pretty cool concept though and I would have loved to see it developed so that the gameplay evolved as you unlocked more DLC. I realize this is a satire game, but I can't really recommend it.
Just finished playing the mod, great voice acting and i didn't experience any bugs of any kind. Quite a few nice scares here and there, would have been great if it was abit longer and i was also really getting into the story, but it seemed to change half way through.
The plot went from a Father trying to find his Daughter (who had gone insane) to a man trying to destroy a demon angel. Would have been great if you'd split this mod into several (with regards Story i mean). For example, first one the father goes looking for his Daughter to find her gone mad and under the possession of some 'otherworldy being' with servants over the place. At the end he could have found his dead wife and heard his daughter's voice in the back of his mind or something -> Thus leaving room for a Part2?
The monster encounters were random (the Brute part could be explained via the Researcher?). The involvement of the orbs towards the end was a nice feature, don't see many mods featuring them. The starting jail/guard area made sense and followed what the notes were saying, i liked that! Once i reached the drainage area it kinda went downhill, but as this is your first mod you can only improve! So well done!
If you ever need any help with voice acting for further mods i would be more than happy to help you guys out, cheers.
But yes, quite a few scares, was enjoyable and nice for a first mod.
Kudos to the mod team!
