HHHmmmm...Discovery has over extended the delay on its 4.86 update by far too long, even when it does arrive once the new systems are explored it will soon become jaded and tedious again, a great shame for this once great mod, now populated online by mostly veteran players it is far too easy to beat the anti cheat and spoil the new guys fun there, hence the drop in players. Was great once, give it a miss unless you play offline only.
I don't mean to bring you down, but I found this mod pretty dreadful in its current state. Your attempt at realism by forcing the player to "pull the bolt" every time you shoot is annoying but I guess some people will like it.
The Officers' ability to drop toxic gas and artilery is terrible. It's very frustrating to get killed randomly, and it adds nothing of value to the gameplay.
The biggest problem I had when playing was really the red effect when you get hit. It paints nearly your entire screen red and only leaves a small circle in the middle, and it makes it impossible to play. I'm guessing its supposed to limit your vision, but it hurt my eyes to a point where I had to suicide every time I got hit. I hope you guys keep working hard on this mod to improve it. My advice is "gameplay before realism".
A nearly FLAWLESS re-edition of an absolute epic cult classic game.
Greatly improved. Almost bug free. It's a shame that it took 5 years to come out.
The only downside that i can think of right now: The lack of new music and no improvements for siege artillery.
Words cannot even beging to describe how much i enjoyed this mod.
It was entertaining, fun, exciting and downright scary as hell!
This is one of the few games to have scared me in years, and goes right on my shelf next to the classics!
Top marks for a top team, well done!
From what I actually played, it was a fantastic mod. Truly, one of the best on ModDB, in my opinion.
What could I have deducted five points for? The glitches!
I could only play for about 5-10 minutes at a time, if I was lucky, before the game would crash! I know the reason behind this is probably the Source Engine 2010 update, but that is supposed to be fixed now. I couldn't finish some levels because no matter what I did, it would crash. I had to "noclip" around portions of levels or else, it would crash. If I looked at certain points on the map, it would crash. If I touched certain objects, it would crash.
Maybe things will get fixed in the next release, I sure hope they do (I've based this review off of "v!.2"). When/if things get fixed, this is a must play mod! Great game play, fantastic voice acting, incredible storytelling, and a moving soundtrack are just some of the things this mod has to offer.
If you see "Korsakovia v!.2" in the "downloads" section, don't waste your time. But if you see a newer version, give it a try, you'll love it.
P.S. I would like to ask the people at "thechineseroom" to make the "Korsakovia" soundtrack available for download, just like they did for "Dear Esther."
Thanks for reading!
