Dystopia is a is a total conversion of the Source Engine that places players into tense combat situations in a high-tech world spanned by computer networks. As Punks or Corporate Mercenaries, players will fight through the physical world to gain access, via Jack-in Points, to cyberspace. Cyberspace is a three dimensonal representation of the world's network. In cyberspace, players must fight off enemy hackers and launch programs to gain control of critical systems and to affect the physical world. Gameplay progresses through inter-linked physical and cyberspace objectives, and players must work together to achieve victory for their team. Players will be immersed in action-packed battles, whether as a heavily augmented combat mercenary armed to the teeth with the latest in firepower and cybernetic implants, or as a twitch-reflex cyberdecker racing to infiltrate a cyberspace node.
Dystopia is just Puny Human and his team of developers showing off. It is a multiplayer game where players choose one of two teams: the Punks, who usually attack map objectives, and the Corps, who usually defend. Players can then choose one of three classes: Light, which is the fastest class, but the weakest; Medium, balanced between health and speed, and has more armor than a Light; and Heavy, a robot which is slowest and strongest of all three classes. Based on their class, players choose one of four weapons, including dual pistols, a tesla cannon, and a minigun. They can also choose a variety of accesories to help them in combat. The game's killer feature is the introduction of Cyberspace. Players can access Cyberspace from terminals located in various paces around the real world, referred to as "Meatspace". They require a Cyberdeck implant. Once inside, they can manipulate various objects in Meatsace, such as doors, through access terminals, which can be defended with forcefields and passwords. While a player is in Cyberspace, his "Meatsack", or player in Meatspace, is vunerable to attack. All of the games features were addicting and I could not stop playing this game for six straight days and nights. A must-have mod for any gamer.
