Dwarf Fortress is fun, whilst having a high learning curve, it takes a while to get the basic game but months to master every bit of content, dying is a main aspect of the game, it will happen alot, wether it be a dwarf uprising or a legendary rabbit. The game itself is alot of fun, I have played it for a few hours at a time and being able to create your own fortress from the ground up and defend it from seiges and the odd amount of angry elves who decided to attack because I chopped down every tree in the entire area gives a real sense of adrenaline. The game also has an optional "Adventure Mode" that plays out like the old ASCII game "Nethack" however this mode is far supperior because of the sheer size of land that you can generate to adventure upon. In conclusion this has to be one of the most played indie games I own and I have loved every moment of it
I rate this highly because it accomplished something that I think games rarely accomplish. It made me go through the emotions of someone in the situation presented.
Potential spoilers follow:
At first I was intrigued and solving the puzzles was fun, then I became frustrated and began to suspect I was not going to make it through the obstacles, then I realized the operator was going to kill me and this led me to want revenge, and finally my sense of justice was satisfied. I looked back and realized this game had been a very challenging, frustrating, exciting, and just down right fun experience.
It is a game that at times you love to hate, and in the end it brings it all together like very few games ever do. Excellent!
Great mod with modern units and vehicles. Even tho its unbalanced at the moment that will change i'm sure. I didn't play multiplayer yet but singleplayer is very fun but it gets boring after a while because there are only 2 factions. It took more then 4 years to make these 2 factions so i can only pray that MC team will add Russia or some other faction in the future.
It's rare that I rate a mod 10 but this one deserves it. Great design and execution. I was however very surprised by the comedic ending. It felt somewhat out of place and inconclusive.
Still, by far one of the best (if not the best) non-total conversion mod for the Half-Life 2 series.
It is an excellent mod. Very playable but the blatant admin abuse and favoritism got me banned. If you so much as speak against an admin or question their abuse it is an instant ban with the reason that you dont care about the server or its players. Other than that the mod is good but the administration is terrible.
