I couldn't bear to continue this lame mod beyond the initial apartment building. The only thing "good" about it, is the new texs and the decent level design (in the beginning at least, I never saw the rest)
Here is the myriad of problems with this garbage mod:
1. No crosshair ("iron sights" are lame and useless)
2. Handful of bullets versus a million enemies
3. A single enemy of any type, requires an entire magazine to kill (if you're lucky)
4. No armor/batteries
5. No flashlight
6. Trying to hit ANYTHING with the knife is impossible, you'll die just battling a headcrab while fumbling around with the knife's zero reach.
I recently tried the Pre-Alpha Demo of project zomboid (hey atleast it was free) and enjoyed the day and 8 ingame hours i survived...i do think that when the man with the shotgun comes into the house to kill baldspots wife. tone down his accrucy and damage...i could never get past that...i'll see if i have the 8.00 for (possibly) extra storys and the sandbox mode
if it wasn't for that inpossible part of the demo this game would be 10/10 no time flat...its a great game but it still needs inprovment....i'll give it a 9/10 because well its still a great game
Lots of people are talking about this game like it's "da best horror game evar!11".
Here's what this game REALLY has to offer: Boring gameplay. Bad level design. Bad graphics. Cheesy Slenderman model. Boring jumpscares. Not scary in the slightest.
I'll give it OPTIMAL value>6/10.
Dow 2/Retribution is a good game in terms of Graphics and engine.Aslo destroyable enviroment was cool. BUT there are several problems that truly ARE an eyesore for DOW fans.
1-DOW2 has ONLY 6 races > wtf RELIC where did Necrons/Tau/Sisters/Dark Eldar/IDH go????? Ah half of Mother F*cking game is MISSING here!!!
2-Really really limited unit choice for any fraction usually up to 10 units ONLY!! WTF again Relic??? DOW Apocalypse has 11 units FOR Space marines only in BARRACKS!!! And overall over 35!!!
3-Relic removed all buildings and left ONLY 1- HQ. Now that is stupid.
4-MOST annoying feature relic added in Dow 2 /retribution (i really want to kill all those motherf*uckers for this) it is TADAAAAAH the RETREAT BUTTON/Ability. Man that is simply idiocy.(Facepalm)If you want to retreat just move your forces back and forth. But with this 'Magick' button squad starts to run so fast no one can catch them LOL and long range fire form enemy units is decreased times 2.I know that melee also increases times 2 but man its the dumbest idea of them all. I cant imagine SM say : FOR DA EMPERROR!!! and next second retreat >_> total bullsh*t.SM could never ever retreat.
I think this mod is well done, and there was alot of hard work put into this, but it is not refined at all yet. First off, the soviet structures still copy the Allied and German structures, when they are obviously capable of editing the models. Second off, the Soviet faction should be speaking English, if they want it to be more like a "Relic faction". Finally, some of the sounds and models are not good. One of the soviet husks is screwed up, and is a completely different color, and some of the soviet rifle noises are much louder and much lower quality than the allied ones. I also come across alot of FPS lag issues, and the mod is not stable, crashing often for me. Nevertheless, it is still an incredible mod, although I do feel like the Soviets are a bit OP.
