The mod is really fun, but there are some serious balancing issues that need to be worked out. Two of them that stick out badly is the range on missile soldiers and Nods Cobra Artillery. The fact that missile squads have only slightly less range than the MRLS is disturbing. The Cobra Artillery deals too much damage. Its stealthed, eliminates medium/heavy units in 2/3 shots, and has a large range. The unit doesn't even fit Nods military doctrine. Also the fact that it fires out of the Fog Of War without being revealed is ******** in itself. Playing the campaign is impossible because Nod will just steamroll you with it before you even get advanced units and tech. Another thing that popped into my mind, the fact that 4 rifle man and 1 flamethrower squads can destroy 3 wolverines is beyond me. Just play GDI's Alexandria mission and you'll see EXACTLY everything I'm talking about.
Revolutionary mod... if you like extreme canonical accuracy, realistic gameplay, and very long battles. Don't forget the one bug in gc where if you spend too much time in gc, the game mechanics go haywire and you can no longer select units and whatnot. As everyone knows, the lag is close to unbearable and can sometimes make gc unplayable but there seems to be less in some gc modes. You will always get that aforementioned bug though. I love the weapon diversity and the "labor of love" dedication to Star Wars consistency. I wish all FOC mods were this accurate to star wars canon. Great work!
This game obviously isn't perfect, but it's a great start for the author, and it actually provides much more fun than it's predecessor. While it doesn't have the best graphics ever, the gameplay is surprisingly really fun, reminding you of an old Arcade Machine video games of the 70s (or something like that). Play this during your coffee break or during your weekend for some fun instead of playing your normal shooter!
Even though I'm a big Lord of the Rings fan, I had wished they had created the visuals from the movies instead of just the books. Using inspirations from both the books and movies would of been a huge hit with many fans such as I, as the Third Age mod for Medieval II Total War did. That being said they have truly created something of a legend as this mod goes down in series M&B as something grandly unique!
Stairwells, a bad expereince, like SCP-087-B! This one ain't that bad though!
Quality: I suppose the quality of the game itself looks alright, not super impressive graphicly but ambience is there and I was waiting for things to happen! Story: Not the first time to hear the story to go down the stairwell as it is the only way to go! Yet not the worst idea either ;) Scares: Not that many scares, and the one that really got me, was the one at the end ;) Not terrible, but it's ok! Lag: No lag! Length: Well, a pretty short game, and makes sense, it's not like the SCP-087 stairwell that took nearly an hour to go down haha!
Quality: 7 - Story: BIG 6 - Scares: 7 - Lag: 10 - Length: BIG 8 - My opinion, better than many games I actually reviewed, because of the many cheap jumpscares so many of them have haha, keep away from too many cheap jumpscares, they really don't make any games better!
Well, it's definitely a different game than I normally play! Really confusing!
Quality: It has the ambience there and the graphics look pretty good, not so sure about the creepy setting, every once in a while I got creeped out or chills down my spine! Story: Not a bad thought, but not entirely satisfied with it either, still, not a story you see often! Scares: I tell myself many times, and in reviews, there are a few cheap jumpscares in the game and that kind of jumpscare pulls down my vote, because cheap jumpscares does not make a game scary itself ;) Had it's few creepy moments and got me sometimes with the jumpscares it had. Lag: I experienced very much lag at the end, it should handle the graphics just fine, but it's the size of the level and all the stuff put inside of it, it's like a huge level of no max render distance, which is probably something to look at for more people to be able to play it with a decent computer like myself ;) Length: I never got to finish it because I had massive amounts of lag towards where I got and therefore I do not know the length of the game!
Quality: BIG 7 - Story: 7 - Scares: BIG 5 - Lag: 8 - Length: 5 - Just my opinion like I always say, so please don't judge me to hard if you are reading this, I'm sure other people think different, not a bad game though!
