The game seems like it will be awesome at first, but quickly proves to be little more but a shallow tease at what could have been better. I don't see the point of reiterating what others have said, but I will say that the entire process of making a game or engine seems incredibly arbitrary, and the lack of any actual diversity in gameplay will make the end stages seems just as trivial and boring as the beginning.
It had some nice points, and it was always fun to imagine my 'dream game (to the limit the game allowed me)' succeeding, though of course it was difficult with the way the game decided what made a good video game. Probably the worst part (and oddly at that) is the fact everything feels so small. You never feel like you're in a huge video game corporation by the end of the game, you only have about eight programmers and around ten other people in various departments.
The mod is a GTA:SA total conversion mod in the truest sense of the term. Every map detail, vehicle, ped, etc, is modelled with such attention to detail, and to the style of the mod. Humor everywhere. On top of all that, the mod is packed with extremely clever mission scripting; honestly the largest, most cleverly scripted world I've ever seen in the GTA modding scene.
An unbelievable mod. 10/10 without doubt.
I found the game incredibly enjoyable and I'm looking very much forward to level two. I only experienced one bug, as all others have already been fixed thanks to the wonderful community, however it's still a bug. It was half way down the corridor leading out of the room with the four out-of-order elevators - I was walking along and fell out of the world.
Other than this one bug (that, might I add, does not completely ruin the game as you can simply just replay the level and avoid the area with the tear) the game was incredibly well made and never once dull or boring. I can say that once more levels have been added and all the remaining bugs have been ironed out, I would genuinely consider Monokrome on a par with such titles as Half-Life or Portal.
One final sweetener - the game is completely free!
a thing that really made this mod for me was the clothing. history is my thing and this really put respect to the clothing setting. many times on the medieval battle field I could not tell if that was a friend or foe! that really pleased me.
with the battle sizer mod I really took this to the next level.
the rule of battle was also thrilling how men would form groups and shield in front.
only thing that can really use work are the women faces, but I can get over that.
All I can say is I cannot wait for more updates! you really got me wanting more. I am sorry this may seem brief but I would prefer to tell you in person. I could talk for along time about my current war with the Mongols.
BEST MEDIEVAL GAME EVER.(I am calling it a game) DO NOT CHANGE!
AND GOD BLESS!
Space Engineers is game in Alpha state, but offers more hours of entertainment than many released games.
It's space sandbox where you can build, fly and crash ships. Building is very intuitive and feature various blocks, including reactors, cockpits, gyro, thrusts, turrets, armors, interiors and many other blocks. In latest update motor block has been added which allows many new designs.
Flying performance depends on design, especially reactor, thrusts and gyro placement. Crashes looks awesome, when you hit another ship you can expect realistic results. Metal parts are deformed, many sharp pieces are in visible.
The development team is community friendly, they fix bugs very quickly, listen to community and release usually weekly updates. Each update contain lots of new features!
Now there's 64-bit version, which allows you to build huge structures, limited only by your computer`s RAM.
Multiplayer and survival is planned for future, the developer is releasing first survival updates now. And this all for 15 bucks?
10 out of 10!
Love this game. It's damn hard but still very enjoyable. Game modes are clever even the game mechanic don't change. The gfx is very nice, with a very good color palette and design - btw the idea of the backgrounds with text is funny!
The soundtrack is wonderful, it's one of my favorite and after months I'm still listening to it.
It's hard to give a rating to this game, because someone could like the atmosphere and someone not. But if you look at it without personal judjments, it's a real piece of art.
It's like moving in a living painting full of sounds when listening to a relaxing (and AMAZING!) music that changes with the enviroment, the graphic style hepls a lot and it's perfect with the soundtrack.
I really suggest you to give this a try, with headphones and in a dark room. :)
