Incredibly good fun and definitely worth the time spent. The large amount of factions combined with unit rosters that do seem slightly short but still provide enough units. Still has a few bugs to fix, such as the Skyrim Thanes looking like the T-1000 from terminator 2.
Enjoyable and well-made mini episode. Great atmosphere, excellent detailing. Opening map is set in a foggy swamp filled with crypts and abandoned buildings. You then continue to a beautiful, sprawling mansion and finish in this underground area that combines ruins, caverns and fleshy organic elements. Second map is my absolute favorite, everyone who has fond memories of creepy mansions from old AitD and RE games will surely enjoy this one.
I wasn't a big fan of that tree-like boss, as he was rather frustrating and annoying. He was impressive in a way though, and I can respect amount of effort that went into its creation.
Nearly two decades after release, and Blood still remains perhaps the finest game Monolith Productions bestowed upon undeserving mankind - and, considering they produced many a fantastic and unique first person game, several of them being among my personal favorites - that is definitely telling something.
Blood is a darkly humorous and often morbid, long and, even by 90s FPS standards, challenging journey.
You'll fight your way through huge, thematically and visually extremely varied, highly atmospheric and intricately designed levels filled with references to (or sometimes directly based on) famous pieces of horror cinema and literature.
Large arsenal of weapons is on player's disposal, ranging from your standard FPS pieces like shotgun and machine gun, to a pretty creative stuff like a can of hairspray used in conjunction with a lighter that turns your unfortunate enemies into pretty flames, to a voodoo doll and several different types of dynamite. Every single weapon is insanely fun and satisfying to use, in a way that is rarely seen today.
This game is simply a must play for any at least semi-serious FPS fan. Blood's best qualities were untouched by time, and it is sure to satisfy anyone who likes a fun and challenging FPS. Blood is also a perfect example of that sheer creativity and quality of game design that is sadly all but gone from modern FPS games.
Such an addictive mod has never been made before. It's so satisfying to watch the armies of Mordor march onwards to destroy the peoples of Middle-Earth, only to finally get to the dwarves and stupidly underestimate them even though I am a huge fan of dwarves and know of their power...
This mod captures the universe perfectly. Great job, guys!
In 2004, when Doom 3 was released, it was a glimpse into the future. The game represented a huge leap in visual fidelity and even manages to hold up well today, over a decade later. Furthermore, the sound design is unsurpassed and really immerses the player in the experience. The environmental storytelling with audio logs and emails was way ahead of its time and would be replicated in future blockbusters such as Bioshock. It is a true testament to how ahead of its time this game was in 2004 that it holds up so well today.
I would highly recommend purchasing this version of Doom 3 over the BFG edition. First and foremost, the game was originally designed to have the player balance his use of flashlight and weapons. The BFG edition removes this gameplay element by allowing the player to use the flashlight and any weapon at the same time, removing some challenge from the game. The visual updates to the BFG edition are not substantial, search out comparison videos on YouTube for confirmation. This version will run perfect in 16:9 widescreen despite not having any 16:9 resolution options in the menu (requires modifying a .txt file).
I really enjoyed playing this game again (last time I played was 2004). Campaign took me 11.2 hours on medium difficulty without rushing through. The campaign is much longer than many contemporary AAA FPS games. This game has held up incredibly well and is still excellent in 2015. Highly recommended for any FPS fans.
Easily one of the best games I have ever played in my life, and I can say without a doubt that I fell in love with it!
In the beggining I had mixed feelings, because this game was triggering my curiosity to see what happens next as well as it was making me feel afraid! I remember sitting on my chair in a decisive way saying to myself ''Let's do this!'' and ending up saving the game around every possible corner! It's incredibly well-done and immersing! I loved everything in it, from storyline to soundtracks!
Great mod, mod creator is also great and responds to user suggestions and is working to improve the mod! A gunpowder mod that is not restricted by actual European history and is set in Calradia, this mod has a lot of potential to be great and is already fun.Looking forward to future updates :P
I have over 1600 hours in this game and it's the only RTS that i've thoroughly enjoyed. I have created multiple mods and have won large tounraments, so i might be a little biased but i've never seen a company so devoted to making sure a game reaches it's full potential.
Here's the idea:
Level design isn't too good. The driving section was too dark, and the other stuff was essentially rectangle corridors. There's only a few enemies about - you get a few pistol users and shotgunners, as well as some zombies with sounds ripped from zombie panic source.
The story? After breaking out of the world's worst-run prison, you escape outside and find some zombies around. Then, out of nowhere, some demon zombies show up and chase you around a bit. Then you go back to the prison and get killed. That's it and it's about a 15 minute mod.
Still, this is an okay mod - might give a few minutes of entertainment if you're really bored.
Even though it is beta, the mod is very stable without any major issues. The map is absolutely amazing, thewanderingknight must have spent hours making everything correct, more importantly he spent time to change all the names.
A word of advice though, before you head to the tournament. Those guys who fight down there are insane. One of them dealt 171 dmg with a bow and many of them will one shot you. Personally I like the extra difficulty in tournament and implemented system for tournaments is great.
The troop trees seem balanced and the music is awesome. Speaking of the troops, if you start as adventurer noone will be willing to join you in villages. But you can convince them talking to the village elder ;)
I want to thank thewanderingknight for all the hard work and I recommend everyone this great mod.
