This should have been a 10/10. I really did like this custom story. It was well written and the idea was wonderful and it was pretty long. The reason for the 5/10: It was just too damn confusing. Not labels for doors or areas and it doesn't tell you just what you need to do and where you need to go so most of the time I was just running around like a chicken with my head cut off. However as it was so well written, I will be tracking you for future custom stories.
The graphics and atmosphere in this game are truly amazing. Gorgeous scenery and great textures and effects. Unfortunately there are only 7 minutes of gameplay, during which the player can do nothing except look around. As a short movie that would have been really great - it leaves a lot of room for interpretation and feelings. But as a game it doesn't satisfy the player at all. My expectations for this were way higher and I was disappointed at what I finally got. I did read that this was made in just 1 week, but with the excellent add-ons for Unity it would certainly have a lot of room for changes for the better.
On the bright side, this MOD has some great details that surprised me when I first started it; all the minor factions and ethnic troops are quite amazing. However, a glitch ruined all this for me; all the lords and kings/emperors are just SITTING IN THEIR CASTLE like a hardcore neet, it's been more than 50 days in the game and basically nobody has ever moved their lazy ***** except for one or two hooligan lords who make up their mind to set half of Europe on fire since everyone else are too lazy to give a fvck about their village.
so, please solve this bug, I know it's only in beta, but this bug really has ruined the game.
Visually amazing, but the story, gameplay and general lack of things to do amisdts these forced "cutscenes" generally makes the game feel so artificial that I can't bring myself to play it for fun. Instead its more like a playeable tech demo really, showcasing how STALKER would have been like if GSC went with their original vision from the get go.
amazing idea but the 1.3 beta ivean ho version crashed when i tried to go to the market in isengaurd.....plus it still says the original mount and blade wb story lines for the begining choices.....and when you riad a village please tone down the fire....its really annoying.....
AI artillery spam
Even though the mod adds a huge variety of new units, it severely lacks any decent balance, so AI always has a huge advantage. Defences are absolutely pointless since enemy always spams Stuka-zu-Fuss halftracks which effectively destroys every emplacement with pretty much one unrealistically direct salvo. Some units (like volksgrenadiers) are ridiculously overpowered and enemy engineers capture faster than any unit in the game (it's just a matter of seconds). This all makes the mod a very frustrating experience. In your next patch you should focus more on the balance rather than adding more stuff.
Srsly, dude people made you very good and detailed maps and you decided o make a flying naked guy and no events? I swear those maps don't deserve to have cheap jumpscares or no events at all and it ends to quickly!
Sorry but I gotta give this a 5/10 for now, if it did not have any naked man I think I would give this a 7/10 for very detailed immersive maps.
Think twice before working on a beautiful project like this
It started out pretty good and interesting, I really like the tilted angle perspective. But after the first scare it became very boring very quickly and I'm not even sure I finished it, but I did press the W button for about 8 minutes.Sadly nothing really happens in the game. It's like watching an endless screensaver.
