Nice portal mod, with nice concept and idea. Author used new technologies and pushed portal engine to it's limits. This is one of the very great must-play mods which shows us there is place for good portal mods. I hope that the upcoming episodes will be published using portal2 engine, which can provide developers new possibilities, and even help them in their intended coop chambers.
The Battle for Middle Earth II and Rise of the Witchking, is one of my favorite games. But, how could you make the great strategy game, even funnier?
Well, Edain is the answer of that question!
They have modded in some new factions, and more balanced units!
Now, Gondor is not the most over powered faction in BFME II, because the factions are well balanced.
Grapichs: Excellent work, it is better than the main games grapichs.
Gameplay: The gameplay is rich... But I actually want more factions, you need different tactics to each faction, and some factions are to expensive or to cheap, for use on bigger maps!
The Multiplayer is the funniest thing in the mod, and it is a great experience for the players!
Edain has it own campaign... But everything is in german and it could be hard to understand sometimes. I played the first five levels of campaign, before I had to use my german dictionary.
It is a new campaign system, so you should have a piece of paper and a pen, so you don't miss the code at the ending of each level. Because you need the code for the new missions and campaigns.
The mod is very well made. I missed some few things, but it is great work. I will be more happy with more factions, but it is a lot of work.
Some of the "special power" are too a little overpowered, so beware!
You could try the mod, and rate it yourself!
9/10! Good mod, worth trying!
See you in the field!
Going to start this off with a "Back in my day!" kind of approach.
The main goal of zombies used to be to survive and aim for the head... But in L4D2 you can kill them just as fast by blowing their foot off! It's a good game... but to me (as a zombie critic) I say that they (Valve) just made what they were good at: A first person shooter, (and added enemies that look like zombies.)
They should have added more of a "destructible body" too(like their goal was)... - They made it so you can cut limbs off for a nice amount of gore, or blow a piece out of their stomach... but when I shoot a zombie I want it to be realistic. - I want its head to blow to pieces in all directions and see chunks of flesh missing when i shoot them with a shotgun (and see them shambling towards me with no legs)... I know... I'm sick. xD But it's how zombies should work.
I'd recommend the game to anyone that likes zombie themed games, though... - It's pretty good (and the price is better now that it's not $50 (PC) and $60 / 360 or PS3...) so it might be worth a try... But it got old fast.
The story mode was very well written, but it didn't make me "wow" as much as as I expected to. They made it sound like it was going to be L4D but ten times better, and to be honest it was maybe .5x better because of some new guns and zombie types.
Overall I would give the game an 8/10 though... Despite its design issues and crappy take on the zombie genre. The sound quality is good, the graphics are nice, and the characters all have a unique personality (I have to admit, though. - The zombies do look good... They just need to act more "zombie"...). - In my personal opinion, though... If you took L4D1, added a few maps, guns, and characters, and sent it back out to the public to take as much cash from your loyal customers as you can - that's Left 4 Dead 2 in a nutshell.
8/10. - Good... But not great (and by far, too.)
The first sand box game that i have played and lost track of time many times. playing a game with my brother on a local server building a rail system digging to the depths of the earth. Sometimes if you just think to strip the graphics off of games what is it just another shoot em up game. or a simple build base and destroy an enemy. a theme gives it a different feel, but a game that is to build what you want. to make it a modification friendly section for a modding community to rise up and even if the modification of a certain mod has some certain ability (piston mod that will be implemented into v1.5) will make it into an actual game. listening to fans while they build the game is the best step to make a game great not just post a title and expect to sell a million copies. now they may have good intentions but if you do not listen to your peers or make the game where it is able to have people change it easy the game will fade away easy. The Minecraft creators have done it right and have the game build with a community that is kept in the loop on whats going on and have a community that can voice an opinion and not have the hammer slam down and say my game, you do not like it, then bugger off and make your own. Single and multiplayer friendly.
I cant give this mod anything apart from a 10, Fleet ops has kept A2 Alive and should be classed as a game of its own, its innovative features set it apart and feels totally different from A2 in so many, much better ways,
I cant wait to see what this team come up with next, and cant wait for the next version,
